What?

When I'm playing my Scoundrel I start combat from behind a target in the group I'm attacking. I'm already in the ****. I don't need Corso to bring the **** to me. Really, if you're playing a Scoundrel and were relying on Corso to bring you the bad guys, you weren't playing your Advanced Class right to begin with.

This change is for the better, for both Gunslingers and Scoundrels.

If you do not play a Scoundrel, you can not appropriately comment on this issue please as it was folks like you that got this change in. Besides, you already HAVE a companion that rockets in, BOWDAR! Use him and leave Corso the hell alone!

And about your "But we start in melee!", You... are aware that mob groups tend to be a little spread out right? Melee one and some others are bound to be ranged fighters. Corso would yank to melee range so you dont have to, and I quote myself "Begin a slow traverse of terrain" as we have NO GAP CLOSERS. My god!

:EDIT: Removed some name calling because, as noted, it really wasnt productive in the conversation. Seeing the above post just made me irritated.

Not all smugglers melee. The only time I melee at all is for Dirty Kick

Sawbones specced, and dps assist from range. Having the ability to use Corso to pull a single mob to the tank or to get away from the fray so someone can CC (if needed) was very handy.

I'm a Saboteur Gunslinger.

I used Corso's harpoon all the time. To pull mobs AWAY FROM ME by putting it on manual rather than auto-use. And to yoink wanderers to where I could safely pummel them without disturbing other mobs with my AoE's.

I had to wait a dozen+ levels to get my stolen ship back. Bioware, don't make me come after you for Corso's harpoon.

Liar? Why am I a liar? I am not lying. I play a Scoundrel and like I said I start out in the midst of the enemy and run from one to the next with no problem. It's not like the enemies go sprinting hundred of yards away the moment you begin combat. It's a few feet, a yard or two at most. Oh woe is me! I have to actually move during combat, instead of just standing there like a lazy pile!

And IIRC you don't get Bowdar until you're in your 40s! That's a long time to wait to have a companion that works with your skill set.

No, this change is good. Get used to it. And don't call me a liar again, moron!

I disagree with you Blackavaar. See my above post, regarding playing melee vs ranged, for reasons why.

I also disagree with people being called liars or morons. Name calling will not help solve any problems. Keep the comments productive.

You get Bowdaar on Nar Shadaar. He's your 2nd companion. Low 20's not 40's
I hate this change, give Corso his harpoon back.

I miss Harpoon Shot too. I'm playing Sawbones and I've been struggling playing tonight. (This is my first chance to play since the patch)
Usually I'll go into stealth and tranquilize the strongest looking npc in a pack and then back up and let Corso Harpoon another npc so that his AOE's won't break the tranquilized one. Looking for a new strategy, but it's rough going so far
I would love for Harpoon to be put back as an option instead of Illegal Jet Pack.

First, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for keeping this thread active. I am very disappointed to see the harpoon move removed from Corso. I currently have an almost lvl 43 scoundrel and I have used Corso as my main companion through the entire game. His harpoon move was a huge reason I kept going back to him. Having him be able to drag a member of the mob to me greatly complimented my scoundrel's play style. I had really enjoyed playing the game and now I am finding myself completely having to re-examine how I play the game.

I do not understand why they felt the need to alter the smuggler class in favor on one specialization. Gunslingers already have the option of Bowdaar or Akaavi. Both will enter mobs quickly from a distance. Corso and his harpoon move was the only companion (imo) that truly complimented the scoundrel specialization.

I wish I had known about this change when I was at PAX East. I would have asked them "Why?". I never thought they would sacrifice the enjoyable of playing one specialization just to give another an abundance of compatible companion options.

I agree with previous posters...make it a toggled ability. Please...the scoundrel community wants Corso and his harpoon ability
