Not anymore. Lmao. I handled marauders fine pre 2.0, post 2.0 it really isn't close. That roll turns the tide significantly in our favor.

My character model will turn to face the Jugg while shooting and I keep my camera forward and my cover shield is forward. Which is priority for Spotter then? My character model's back is facing the same way as the cover shield while my character model is turned shooting at the Jugg. Does my cone in that case go from my cover shield facing forward OR does it go from my character model's front which is now facing the Jugg I'm shooting at?
Ahh misunderstood and I do not know, very good question. I'll test it

Best way might be just to use Suppressive Fire to turn your character's back while your stealth moves in. Easiest way to turn away from cover shield while shooting and not having to worry about getting someone else to help you test it.

Ok, I just tested it and I can confirm:

the stealth detection cone is in the direction the sniper is facing. NOT the cover shield.

I forsee a lot of snipers tricking unsuspecting operatives with that one
