I dont want these to be a uniform, I want these to be a skin applied to ARMOR.
That way you can have your team with a normal uniform while being able to 'show armor' to switch to the marine maco armor for ground missions. Not only is it better it sets the line for doing the OTHER equipment like the Rifle.
Inorder to get the weapon in they would either have to make a brand new weapon, likely to be a sniper bolt rifle which is going to suck compared to existing versions OR make it a skin that applies to any weapon being used.
Thus if they make the Maco uniform apply to any armor worn and the rifle skin apply to any rifle used. It dosent force folks to switch to specific armor / weapon types that will eventually become inferior to existing weapons.
'waaah waaaah, we wont be able to see armor types or weapon types'
- Then they both become worthless unless this gear comes out being purple AND levels up to compete with existing gear.
Sure, some folks might use them because they look cool but using gear that is below optimal in a game which is becoming increasingly 'gear' orientated is going to cause you problems.
