He didn't actually say you couldn't loot weapons, just that it's a balance issue. I cant think of a single FPS, (SP or MP) that doesn't allow you to pick up your enemies weapons and use them. Unlike vehicles, weapons don't need empire specific skins (I suppose technically vehicles don't either, and it could actually be used to your advantage if they ddn't magically change colors). Enemy weapons are usually some of the most effective weapons since they are the weapons your enemy will have the least amount of experience fighting against.

Actually, in this case it might be different.

Seems like PS2 'unlocks' will focus mostly on mods and upgrades, they probably don't want people without specific unlocks to operate 'better' weapons.

I'm not a big fan of it but it does make some sense. I remember having some VS 'friends' drop a stockpile of Lashers (oh the Lasher 2.0 days)

"7. The classes are designed to give a specific combat role to soldiers on the battlefield. This helps a few things: 1) makes enemies immediately recognizable, you see someone and you'll know what sort of bad things they'll be able to do to you 2) helps players understand their purpose a bit better. We'll have familiar classes like Medics, Engineers, Heavy Assault, Infiltrators, and MAXs. Each of these will have significant room to specialize and tailor to your playstyle"
I have been thinking of what is exactly meant with classes. Maybe what is meant with it is that when you pick a certain class, you are still free to take whatever loadout you want, but only the skills of your class will be activated or some kind of bonus to your class will be given. For example medic, if you choose this class when spawning, the points that you have invested in medic skills will be activated or that you will have some kind of bonus when healing/rezzing. It will probably also change your appearance slightly as Matt said "makes enemies immediately recognizable" (probably some big red cross with white background).

Ask if the instant knife is an instant kill attack or not

Ask if there are any kind of headshots in the game

It is insanely easy to sign up for Reddit guys, "Register in seconds" literally means seconds, and you don't need an e-mail address either.

Also, he responded to my knife based question (posted at almost the same time as Bags, heh):
Q: "I have to ask, quick knife or equip knife? (One stab one kill?)"
A: "We're still deliberating. Some of the discussions about this have almost ended with people getting stabbed. Passionate debate."

Quick update on the knife issue

Q:I have to ask, quick knife or equip knife? (One stab one kill?)

A:We're still deliberating. Some of the discussions about this have almost ended with people getting stabbed. Passionate debate.
EDIT:

Mine was more specific. I don't think he answered the OS1K part.
