The all-black skins blend in far better than any of the other ones, particularly in areas with poor lighting. Which is why they command a premium.

Similarly people buy the twitch elite skin not for how it looks for the player model but because it changes the drone color to something that blends in with a lot more flooring than the original one.

But is that worth having to see Twitch's face so much

Give me an attacker with a snake camera you can silently feed through breakable walls and barricades that marks enemies. Same benefits as droning a room but without the safety. Unlimited use, but can only see from one position. Maybe make it so you can leave it in it's spot as an extra drone camera.

That sounds like a real cool idea. Could be balanced by making it pretty easy to see from the drill side and button hole from the other. Not sure how you would give it an audio cue though except for the drill noise maybe.

No audio cue for this one. It's supposed to be silent because it doesn't have the same level of benefit as a drone to completely scout out a room, so it's much less obvious. Maybe a very small red light while in use like the other cameras?

I'd like to see a operator that can remove reinforcements from walls and panels. Say they come up a floor panel, so they pop out their tool kit and disengage it pretty quickly. But if you were trying to remove a wall from the other side, it's pretty loud and obvious and takes a good 15 to 20 or more uninterrupted seconds so you better have backup or a claymore watching your back. But then once you have that wall ready you can actually hold it up until your squad is ready. Then you suddenly drop it and blow the breach charge that they set up beforehand so that wall they counted on is suddenly wide open.

I'd also love to see an operator exactly like Cav but on offense to catch roamers, but instead of silent walking, you have throwable proximity sensors that ping in your HUD when someone walks by (teammate or otherwise) and lasts a good few seconds so roames could potentially sneak through of a teammate just set it off or something. Basically if Cav is a hunter, this operator is a spider waiting for you to enter their web. And then you interrogate them and ruin the defender's day.

Jeremor posted:

A new operator from a South American country, named Aztec.

His special power is that when he reinforces walls, the opposite sides have blowgun traps that shoot poison darts when people walk past.

Or he can rig up a giant boulder that rolls down a hallway when a pressure plate is disturbed. Whatever

I would actually loving love an operator with trap walls. Try to set a breach charge and it explodes!

Q8ee posted:

I need advice that isn't just "get gud". I've never been amazing at FPS games, but I've been above average. I really, really, really love Rainbow Six, it's an amazing game. But I keep losing steam and all motivation to play it, because I prefer Ranked (as I feel it's the best way to improve / go up against players of my own skill level, Casual is such a coin toss on how tough your opponents will be).

However, Ranked really fucks me over. It's as if there isn't a skill bracket for my level. When I'm in high Silver, I dominate, it's no competition, I top the scoreboard. Then I get the inevitable rank up to low Gold, and it's the complete opposite. There's no middle ground. I'm either 100% wrecking (which in itself isn't really fun, as my opponents don't use sound and have poor reflexes, so there's no challenge), or I'm getting wrecked (which is no fun because who wants to die all the time). In low Gold, I play it safe, but it just boils down to my reflexes / reaction times not being as good as the person I come up against. I'll see them, fire, but my aim isn't great, and they'll just flick and headshot me.

I'm in a perpetual state of non-stop winning games, ranking up, and then non-stop losing until I derank back to high Silver. I usually binge on the game when I'm high Silver, but when I'm in Gold, it's just such a slog and I end up giving up and not touching the game again. I really want to play right now, but the thought of going through 5 games of just being dominated is a huge turn off.

How long have you been playing? Do you usually play solo?

I'd thoroughly enjoy an operator with a hard shield counter gadget. Like a taser projectile that would force you to switch to just a pistol for 5 seconds or take damage. Or if we're gonna go silly sci-fi, a magnet trap that yanks your equipped gun or shield out of your hands and forces you to manually remove it from the trap.

Honest question--isn't that Echo and Lesion? Or are they only a hard counter to Montagne?

Echo can disorient you, but he can't force Montagne to collapse his shield (I'm pretty sure) or Blitz be unable to flash you. Plus you can't do anything while piloting the drone anyways, so you're relying on a teammate for the alley oop.

Lesion is a better counter, but you're also relying on them to not be able to reposition themselves at all while you're attempting to put a gu on their feet. And again, Blitz will probably still flash you and kill you when you're trying to do that.

My suggestion is a hard anti-shield operator that removes the shields from the equation entirely, but their gadget has no use on operators not using one. Give them a decent shotgun, SMG, 2 speed, and 2 armor, because their entire existence is ruining the day of any shields trying to get into the objective.

Would have been cool if they made it so Vigil is invisible to Lion drone when his ability is active.

Would have made no sense though because Vigil's gadget only (canonically) works on drones and cameras in a certain range while the eye in the sky doesn't actually provide a video feed. Seems more like echolocation or something.

Keep the panel amount but make it so he can replace any broken ones. That way you have to breach or he can just barricade that entryway again when it's safe. God knows that practically every attacker has enough methods to punch through them as is, including literally punching through them.

Ed: Oh or make them Bandit compatible so you can't breach with anything but projectiles

I'd totally do that job. Probably a decent wage for spending the day hitting Ctrl + F and typing in dirty words. I bet they wouldn't even be responsible for punishments, they just email a list of names and amount of offenses to their boss.
