Time to discuss this little bastard, even thought nothing will probably be done in any patch after the coldfix - if more than one patch comes out. Maybe it will at least inspire modders if we reach something here...
Anyway, the 1st problem with the Vindicare (and main one) is, as widely know, the abusive price IG player has to pay for it's infiltration, considering he's the one single unit that benefits from the upgrade.
Cost reduction for his infiltration is in demand, no excuses I believe. But imo, the ideal for him would be to come infiltrated out-of-the-box, and now that SoB's Death Cult Assassin are in the field, infiltrated OOTB and being spammable, the "Relic doesn't want against infiltration without research" argument.
The 2nd problem is that he misses more shots than he should. I can already see post almost flaming me for wanting him to have 100% accuracy, even thought it would come, of course, with a damage reduction to keep dps. Hell, maybe with a small dps reduction itself, and 1 or 2 seconds more of reloading time if it's the price to pay for not missing shots with a man whose life IS to use that goddamn rifle - either to do his job or training for it.
As I said, most people will over react to this suggestion so here is a less drastic: 100% accuracy at least for when the scope is activated; it's a pain is the ass to use an ability that stays active for only 2 shots at maximum, and lose both - I always scream "Why?! Why you @#$%?! Why did you miss right now?! Arrrrgh"... ¬¬
And no, I didn't come from a game where I lost and blamed the Vindicare. I just finally had the time and will to start a balance thread again...
Other than the above, I think he's ok; if there's anything else to add, I leave for Jaimas
