Operatives Knives....

Okay, so I was playing on my Scoundrel (Level 50/Scrapper) Pug WZ, and I have never really seen another Concealment Op in action against me. Stealther vs. Stealther, usually that doesn't happen very often for me. However I was playing Huttball and I noticed how he got the drop on me and used Hidden Strike , I saw the tiny knife, so I was expect a bunch of attacks that involve the Op hitting me with his tiny little joke of a knife.

Now he goes for a Shiv..... Why the hell are the Concealment Operatives knives so freaking huge!?
I mean yeah, I pull a shotgun out of nowhere and I know doesn't make sense, but the Operative pulls out a knife like 3/4 of his height.... I wonder how drunk the developers were when they designed the attacks for the Operative

Anyway, just a post away from the "Nerf Smash" or "Buff Commandos"

odd, for me my knives are at the size of a shortblade-ish, only times ive seen my knife become huge is when it visually stays inside a mob in this example a huge boss ie, Zorn/Toth

i think the vibroknives were always huge. They are basically a shortsword version of vibrosword.

It's like a huge cell phones in The Matrix movie - to attract the attention!

Yep.

My Op. med. is a puny chick body type. /agent and she pulls out two "knives" bigger than her torso. It's great.

Swords don't have a 4m range.
