Yeah but most people just Don't Stop Shooting

I'm looking forward to the Hereford update the most. I really like that dumb map and I'm looking forward to find out how the devs have changed it after taking 2 yrs of DLC ops and just the meta expansion into account.

It was one of their first maps and you can see it in their alpha videos, it's nice to have it get spitshined

This doesn't ring true to me...you forgot to mention how he and Zofia are ex-lovers. Or the terrible secret he knows about Jackal. Or how he and Leision share knowing looks about what it means to have suffered.

lets you vault into new areas
lets you reinforce the top half of walls that normally leave a gap at the top

There should be an Operator called Comfort (or Benefit?) that specializes in unjamming the meridian, due to a blood feud he has with Lesion (because Lesion gave his parents just a little prick and caused them to die of sepsis). Instead of throwing Gu Mines, this Operator uses callipers attached to a telescopic pole that he uses to remove Gu Mines from a distance and soothe peoples meridians. He hates himself because he shares the same line as Lesion: when removing the Gu Mines, he quietly sobs "This will sting a lot".

You joke, but I could genuinely see utility in an attacker who uses miniaturized MICLIC charges or something like that as an anti-trap device, especially since so few of them have access to grenades. Then again, that could be unbalancing to trap defenders, make IQ obsolete, or just make someone like Mute too powerful.

A defender, or hell, even an anti roamer attacker, who's ability is to pour out a jar of marbles on the floor, and if you run on them you fall à la home alone and are downed.

Since year one, I've wanted an op that can rappel silently and much faster (think fast roping) than everyone else as well as attach a line to an open hatch to allow the team access to climb up.

Perfect for the home alone event. You can have wet and sticky, attack and defense operators.

Anti-roamer operator that has a gadget that enhances sound detection, but the caveat is explosions / flashbangs / close gunfire causes a ringing in your ears that makes it hard to hear anything. Best tactic is to go off by yourself, turn the gadget on (it'd be like Cav's silent step in that it slowly runs out and needs to recharge) and listen in for any roamers, then corner and bang their poo poo in.

Defender operator can deploy gadgets around the map (say, a max of 3), that lets her specifically activate whichever dropped gadget she wants, using a tablet. The gadgets will make random, natural-sounding noises, like rustling, aiming down sights, footsteps, cries of pain.

That's actually pretty useful

Get 1... Maybe 2. Ropes to attach and leave for your teammates

The more I think about it, the more useful it seems. Having an attacker that can quickly rappel through windows would be pretty nifty. And setting up a rope for your teammates to use to quickly enter a room is also nifty.
