So for the second time in a week I've been hearing rumors in GC that the new expansion later next month will include expanding the weapons used by characters (i.e. Hunters will learn to use rifles, agents will learn to use pistols) has anyone else heard about this?
This is a good question, and one that we have received quite a few times over the past few years. Although we dont normally comment on rumors, I thought this was a good one to jump in front of. As of right now, there are no intentions of expanding the weapons that are available to Classes.
It has always been our design goal that when a player sees another character, they would be able to tell what Class that player was at a quick glance. Part of that is tied into the weapon that they use. Right now if you see a Republic character running with a blaster rifle, you will assume they are a Vanguard. Two pistols, Gunslinger, and so on.
Hope that clears up any rumors
