Sniper operator for the Defenders0 Likes/2 Replies/33 ViewsOriginal poster Justifier-98 91 posts
I think it would be nice if we could have a new defensive operator whose special ability deals with their sniper riffle. As far as I'm aware of, and please correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think the defenders have any snipers on their team. It would likely be very beneficial if they could have an operator with a long range riffle added to the defending team. Another option is to give another defender a DMR or another type of long range weapon. What do you think of this idea?

@Justifier-98 No because of the fact that having an Operator with a sniper rifle on Defense would allow said Defender to spawn peek, and since Defenders are supposed to defend it would make no sense to even have an operator like that, and on top of that, Defenders can't go outside without getting detected immediately, and an operator would be absolutely useless to the Defenders because of that, hence why Kali barely even works in the game due to her role and how her role only helps for certain sites, meaning she's barely and rarely ever useful, a Defender with a sniper rifle would be completely useless because of the fact that their gadget would have to benefit their sniper rifle, meaning no use for defense, whereas even the current roamers have gadgets that are useful for defending like Cav's suppressor allowing her to instantly down instead of kill attackers with headshots when her Silent Step is activated, giving her the chance to interrogate and give her team intel, or Vigil who can be undetected by drones allowing him to flank any attackers that attempt to push site. So no, an operator like this would not work at all for Defenders, considering that defending is reserved for inside and not outside, and because almost all gun fights in the game are within close ranges and rarely ever long range, and also half of the gun fights are not even gun fights and just people shooting others in the back to put their team in the advantage.
