Having played a Bounty Hunter and Trooper, I find the Trooper's High Impact Bolt animation and sound effect to be very disappointing and underwhelming. It is supposed to be a very "powerful" shot, but looks and sounds just like "splat".

Whereas the Bounty Hunter's Rail Shot just looks and sounds very powerful, the shot even leaves behind a trail of smoke after you've fired it, and sound effect is like it can pierce armor.

I strongly suggest changing the animation and sound effect of High Impact Bolt to that of Rail Shot. Who's with me?

I agree. I think HiB needs a stronger concussion effect - both visually and audibly.

Yeah, right now it sounds like a super soaker with silly string when it hits.

It doesn't have a "bang" animation because it's magnetically shot...

High impact sounds like child's fart tbh. Sorry but it's awful.

Pretty much 90% of the trooper animations are horrible.

Tracer Missile used to use Fusion Missile animation and vice-versa, so people spamming Tracer Missile were basically spamming the Butt-Missile. Heck, someone even edited a clip of Episode 2 to give us this gem:

I finally logged on my commando just earlier to test him out after a long absence and I do agree, HIB is very underwhelming, like most of the animations. You guys get Stockstrike as the Republic version of Rocket Punch, right? Yeah, even your out-of-battle-healing animation looks like garbage. It makes sense, but still boring. I might play my Trooper more of the animations didn't bore me to tears, and I normally don't even consider animations as something to consider, but this is a Star Wars game, I'm not used to being bored.
