New idea for sniper. Stealth Cover

i was thinking since the idea of a sniper is to attack from a concealed location in real life, we might have an ability that lets us take cover in stealth. when we attack, or break cover obviously it breaks stealth. also for balance i think it should have a decently long cool down like maybe 1.5 to 2 minutes. also maybe have a new special attack that can only be used from the position, call it stealth barrage or stealth shot or something cool. as well as limit the abilities that one could use while in stealth(no cc's, no orbital etc.)

Absolutely not. We do enough damage as it is, we don't need to be invisible as well.

When we care for others our own strength to live increases. When we help people expand their state of life, our lives also expand. Actions to benefit others are not separate from actions to benefit oneself.

This. Stealth and ranged don't mix.

well as i said in my op, i think the abilities that you'd be able to use from stealth should be limited as well as not being able to take stealth cover while in combat.

I think this was mentioned on the forums a few months ago. The responses then were similar. There just isn't really a way to balance this.

If u actually read my post which I doubt any of u did you'd see it wouldn't be hard to balance at all. Problem is u guys hear stealth and u automatically think of op operatives running around. If you'd actually look at specifically what I suggested you'd see it's anything but what current stealth is all about.
