Considering every character has unlockable gear specifically advantageous to them, there needs to be at least one gear loadout per character. Whether it be the number of gear loadouts equals the number of potential characters (30 at the moment), or every character has their own specific gear loadout(s). The latter would save a little time during character selection, and a lot of time pre-match/mission. It would eliminate the need to edit loadout(s) so frequently, if using several different characters, and allow players to jump back into the fray more quickly.
Just some food for thought.
