"Samaritan Snare" is another ep that showed that Worf isn't just the "let's shoot them" guy, he totally had the Pakleds figured out before anyone else did and if Riker had listened to him there literally wouldn't have been an episode. If anything being the tactical/security officer is doing him a disservice, he's more perceptive and clever than any old jamoke who could aim the guns and (get) beat up (by) the monster of the week.

I really like the bit in The Most Toys where Worf takes over Operations after Data gets abducted, and handles the tricorder stuff on the away team, and oh yeah of course Worf can fuckin' analyze tricorder readings because he's a fuckin' Starfleet Academy graduate!

Also he manages to build a portable forcefield generator out of his commbadge. EDIT which Bucswabe mentioned a couple pages ago

I mentally retcon that to be 'forcefield that works against holograms' because otherwise it makes no sense that you could do that and they don't use personal ones all the time.

Agreed. the holodeck is basically all forcefields anyway, so I just choose to believe that this technical solution is just using a comm signal to divert some of those forcefields to surround your body.
