I believe they said no looting and no hacking vehicles already.

The no hacking is ok to me BUT i think no looting is bad as alot of ways soldiers can resupply in the thick of battle is by scavenging.

Scavenging could be a sub skill in the Assault class tree.

I think both of the answers to this poll are sufficient.

Hacking vehicles, and looting were both good ideas and I was surprised to hear they were both scratched.

I was more surprised to hear the reason they don't have hacking vehicles is because they don't want to spend the money to render vehicles in different colors.

But seriously, who didn't like going after the scavenger merits?

I love scavenging. When I run out of ammo during a big field battle I rely on ammo looted from friendlies/enemies. It was always pretty thrilling to me, having to make due with whatever I could find in the bags.

Maybe they need robot ears? I think they would like it if they had robot ears... "Please sit on my face pew pew pew"

I voted yes, have it come back.

The reason is not because Planetside 1 had it (I rarely looted guns, mostly ammo and medkits) but because most games now HAVE this feature; and many FPS players would probably feel a bit weird if they could not pick up an enemies ammo / weapon.

I think it's worth having.

Not to mention it makes gaming sense that I should be able to take everything from the gentlemen whom I just introduced to the floor.

I'm not sure how they intend to do it, but if they just magically give you ammo, or nothing at all for that matter it sounds kind of lame.

This, it required some luck, some skill, and sometimes your trusty knife.

Say for instance were holding a generator (or something similar, whatever circumstance the new game may present), the people running in and getting shit canned provided supplies. Which I believe they very well should. When you were getting down to the nitty gritty you could share your supplies with your squadmates.

Now it seems a majority of that is going to be taken out, which is disappointing.

Maybe they'll add some new logistical aspects to it since you can't scavenge anymore? Air dropped supply crates could be used for the open field warfare we're supposed to be having, for example. Not sure what to do about your gen hold though...

Let's get this quote in here:

Our texture budget is already stretched with all the unique armor, vehicles, weapons etc. I can't think of any other AAA fps game that would have anything close to our texture requirements.
It looks like it's a texture memory problem. Even so, I see no reason why weapons could not be looted. There's no need to re-skin a looted weapon, just change the tracer color.

Also, I simply don't see how it could present a balance issue unless the empires each have weapons with radically unequal abilities in different areas. I'm holding out hope for loot-able weapons being added in beta.
