    Welders will probably play a bigger role when the marine heavy armor suits are released.

    Heavy armor = slow to walk, making it more bothersome to get to an armory to heal + will most likely have ton of armor that will need to be welded after an attack.


    But a commander will drop armorys at strategy part, like outside hive etc etc, giving all marines full healt in mather of seconds. Basically you can drop armorys everywhere on the map if you want to..... Please dont think so linnear, think out of all sequens and then figur out a solution :)

    The abbreviation for Old Ass Gamers is OAG. OAG is something more then just a word, it makes us gamers understand the passion. The passion that you never want to stop playing video games. That age is just a myth and not even age will stop us.

    I have seen welders drop from dead marines but I think it only happens if they have it out when they die.

    So, armor is not useful enough to justify welding in the field.

    Therefore we should make it harder to get armor back, to encourage people to perform menial tasks in order to gain a not-that-useful benefit?

    Your logic escapes me.

    I agree with the idea that the "frontline welder" will come into fashion with exosuits. We saw it in NS1, we'll see it in NS2.

    Personally, I'd be a fan of the welder also being more badass in close combat, but that's just my NS1.0x twitches coming back :)

    You want something, that is already in the game, as soon as you wear a welder, you will get notifications about marines, sturctures and even the marinecom if he spectates you.


    this is true, i forgot this was in last patch.
    but i still want a way for someone without a mic to hit the radio menu and say "Hey, I need some welding!" etc

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.

    When you feel you need to be rude or angry about a game, just read these links and remember what role you are playing:

    The problem is that it is a bit OP to have armories give back armor.
