Only thing I could add is a kill cam. Otherwise, perfect!

Thanks. Added your suggestion.

A field of view slider for consoles.

Increase field of view for consoles was already in there but I changed ‘allow FOV adjustment’.

The most important change I think definitely needs to be allow others at the character select countdown to see you spinning on the spot. Why can we spin if others can’t see us spin? It’s practically an outrage.

add chroma skina for our own customization

I need this too

Relocate Australia to between Hawaii and California. Boom, connectivity issues fixed. I mean, seriously, how hard is it to relocate a landmass? Abu Dhabi made their own islands, ffs!

man now that you mention, a chroma skin akin to the gold ones would be neat!

Thanks for the input but I’m waiting for tier 2/3 before adding any skin suggestions.

Ah yeah sorry that was a little topic derailing, i wasn’t making a suggestion, just an observation that it would certainly be cool :sweat_smile:

But I’d really like more ping options, like there are in Killing Floor 2 for example. Now there’s only one ping, and when people use it I have no idea what it means. And I cant actually see it anywhere on my screen either most of the time, I just hear the sound it makes. It does make me check the situation of the other lane (meltdown) but most of the time I’m just left confused. What did they want? :confused:

Also, a way to communicate and party up with other people without having to add them as Friends or using another site out of game. Like a Global Chat. Though I think an after match lobby (as already suggested) could also work.

Added your ping suggestion and also quick chat as I remember someone on beta asking for that too.

I would add that they may need to look into how health vs damage taken scaling is handled when it comes to defensive objectives (ex. Protecting Shield Generators for Saboteur Story Mission). It honestly felt like two-manning the mission has a higher chance of success than going in with a group of 3 or more. I’m also curious as to what the failure rate is for that mission as well.

Tone down the amount of controller rumble generated when fully charging Toby’s railgun (I play on Xbox One). I’ve read one post on this forum about someones rumble feature going awry because of it.

Lastly, Boldur’s NPC for The Experiment Story Mission needs to have his pathing fixed when the mission starts and he needs to go up the stairs to the Observatory.

Generally, make the missions beatable for groups of five.

Also, expand servers to cover regions like South and Central America, Oceania and SEA, The Middle East, West Europe, etc. That will help a lot of people be able to play with more people.

Optimize your damn game.

That is all.

I think the victory and defeat sequences need to be spiced up a bit. They are too silent and awkward specially after playing a tough 30 minute match on incursion. The game just goes silent sometimes and previews an empty battlefield. (Except for meltdowns animation of course) But I want something like the intro’s, something hero-esque and badass.

How about fix getting stuck in places on PvE maps or add a “Unstuck” option or a suicide option.

How about not having to restart a mission from the beginning after having an objective destroyed during a protect/escort mission? this is especially frustrating when you have several lives to burn.

Communication rosette! This game desperately needs it. I only require “help”,“attack” and “retreat” commands. Overwatch has it,and it’s not near as complex as battleborn. The pings are barely visible among all the effects and it’s hard to hear them too,especially on meltdown with the constant dingdingdingdingding
