Anyone else think that we should get actual in-game visual models of vibro-knives? For operatives (or agents as a whole), you know to increase the bamf level. Although I'm sure it would take a lot of work for developers to revamp the way we use our melee/tech skills :/

I want more than just a stat stick!

yep, as soon as you chose operative for your advanced class, the "auto attack" skill should be changed to something melee, and the blaster rifle should become nothing more than a stat stick, with vibroknives being visible, modifiable weapons.


in fact, i cant beleive they didnt do that to begin with as it seems pretty much common sense for a stealth based melee class

I think they should get a Pistol in the mainhand and their knife in the offhand dual wield with both visible at the same time!

Agreed.

I'd be happy if it was just displayed holstered on my belt or back TBH.
It just seems odd to have your main weapon/tool be invisible all the time.

I also agree. Although, with one in the back and one in the front, it's not entirely hidden
But I would like to see it and have different knives have different models.

I continue to find it bizarre that:

1. I am a melee/close combat class
2. I have a rifle type weapon out during all close combat
3. In my cut scenes I have a blaster pistol on my hip, which movie-me uses often
4. Said blaster pistol is never visible or used at any other time
5. Most of my skills are now melee, but my knife appears nowhere at any time except when using the skills.

In conflusion:

I like the weapon on my back and want to keep it. As a stat stick. I would then like to also be bristling with knives at all times. Or at least like, one knife. Just one?

And what's with the blaster again? :P
Let them see what is not there, and feel what does not touch them.
When they no longer trust their senses... that is the time to strike.

i agree, when i was playing an operative i think this is what put me off from continuing. having your main weapon not visible really hampers the experience in my opinion. its why im going scoundrel as my operative equivalent (they just whip **** with their gun), but scoundrels have problems with shotgun instead. a scoundrel uses a shotgun much like an operative uses a knife for certain moves, which is unfortunate because a shotgun not on ur back is worse than a knife. overall, i'll deal with it because the blaster whip is cool

I like everything you just said, and would like to subscribe to your newsletter.

Seriously, what IS with that kriffing blaster pistol? WHERE DOES IT GO WHEN THE CUTSCENE IS OVER?!
I am a Chiss Gunslinger. Your argument is invalid.
