I have not been bothered by the absence so far. There usually are a couple of guys around playing engineer, and with the operator they are clearly the most needed and useful classes.

However concerning explosives, what I found intriguing is, that the game is clearly lacking destruction and ways to get rid of it, as well as ways to counter people using cover. When considering clearly superior postions above the money piles in high tension, you have close to no ways to deal with these people. An XM25 would really help here. Still it would not fit the theme, as wouldn't grenade launchers themselves.

It would be better, too if throwing grenades was a bit more precise and controllable.

As for vehicles, I do not know, the ARV and the spawn point can be a real nuisance, but giving everybody a way to deal with them is not the best idea. Especially since we know that there are different vehicles on different modes/maps.

That said I would not mind seeing the grenade launcher on the "support" class (can't remember what it is called in Hardline), the support gadgets in the beta are IMO pretty lackluster.


So the breaching charge is lackluster...?

I haven't played hardline, but it seems to me that the breaching charges should be the only anti armor weapon for the Support class.

What I'm somewhat concerned about is how the recon class, the laser trip mine is good, but I think it should have some defense against armor like it does in BF4. I mean, the Assault class has full auto rifles that can do damage to cars, but the recon class weapons can't shot nearly as fast. But I also hope that Recons DONT get breaching charges, because I don't think it makes sense in hardline. In BF4 I actually think support shouldn't have C4, but thats another discussion.

I would like the ability to launch a flashbang or smoke through a window, or kill a fool with blunt force trauma.

Is Hardline available on the 360 yet?

No noob tubes? I can deal with that, but I don't see why it wouldn't be in Hardline. As long as you have the right set of permits, you can get one here in the US, and it wouldn't be out of the question if a criminal had one because black market.

If we put realism aside totally, as Hardline does, and assume that police forces and criminals alike would use top-notch military gear especially the M320 grenade launcher with HE shells, then I would certainly not give it to the Assault class, but the Support as this class is not useful at the moment.

I still do not see the need for a HE launcher as it is infantry centric and the RPGs are so often used on the two modes. Flashbangs and Smokes however this would be sensible.

1. Not all the Gadgets yet.

2. Fucking breaching Charges.
I buffed DMR velocity.
