Every trooper I see is body type 3. Do you think it is the best too?

I'm a body type 2 vanguard. I was a body type 3 vanguard in Beta, but I found that I looked really silly as this huge roidfreak man holding this (relatively) tiny gun.


The ladies like body type 2 better also

Ladies are generally best as body type 2, but sometimes body type 1 looks better, just because some Trooper armor is so thick, that it helps to compensate for the anorexic type 1 look, while making type 2 look silly due to how the leg armor is so thick it clips through each leg when you run. Mine is type 2, but tries to use the 'thinner' armor sets so as to retain her figure, which will become very plausible to do with this patch.

I would agree that body type 3 is the most popular male Trooper body type though. I find it comical in a Pixar-style way though, and can't take them seriously.

I have found, for my tastes, and YMMV, almost all heads tend to look too small on type 3 bodies on men, regardless of class or race. However, what matters is what you think, not what I think or what anybody else thinks. The only effect on playability that I am aware of is that type 3 and 4 bodies sometimes have trouble in tight spaces.

I have a body 1 male trooper... I cant imagine him any other way. The voice matches really well and I havent found any armor yet that looks "ridiculous" on him. The only thing I don't like and have to hide is his helm but i dont like them anyway so doesnt matter to me

If you think Body type 3 looks silly on Male troopers, you should see 4. I've seen a few on my server, and they're always good for a laugh, especially the commandos, who start looking like Heavy Weapons Guy rather quickly.

I'm personally body type 2, reminds me more of the clone troopers from the movies/cartoons. I was jealous of a few body type 3's once, given that they look cool in armour, but once you get yourself a nice set of matching armour you look like a generic trooper and I love that.

I picked type 3. Personal opinion only - for me the armour and assault cannon just don't look quite right on the smaller builds. The AC is already more than half the size of my character - it'd probably be even bigger than a type 1. For vanguards with the smaller blaster rifle variants type 3 does look a little ridiculous though.

2 just looks more natural to me. I mean sure being this big burly guy with heavy armor is cool and all, but I prefer the more quick and nimble look.
