MAX Step-up/Vault

Since MAX units are unable to jump in Planetside 2(which I agree with considering the weight of the suit), I feel it would fit within the style/gameplay to allow them to step up a minimal height. Perhaps just the height of 1 to 2 feet to allow them to traverse minimal obstacles. Some gal drops during the stream created situations where the MAX unit became stuck in areas with a wall that stood a foot off the ground but because they can't jump they were forced to suicide to continue playing.

Yes I definitely agree, especially stressing the fact that a MAX can hot drop anywhere on a map. You would think that they would HAVE to make something so that a max can get around small railing. I saw that stupidity in the stream as well. MAX's are already big targets for infantry, gotta give them the ability to have a little hop.

As long as it is slow, one of the MAX's biggest balances is their lack of maneuverability compared to infantry.

Generally, the MAX won't get in those areas unless they botch a Galaxy drop. I say leave it as is buuuuuuuuuutttttttttttttt

There should totally be a leaping mod for a MAX suit. Like maybe even a high jump. Something that takes away from the use of more combat oriented mods to jump high in the air over obstacles (and crash onto the ground at a rapid pace). Something other than jumps jets that can be useful for MAX mobility.

I think the step up makes sense. Doesnt seem op and would give them the ability to get unstuck. I dont think thats unreasonable. Not sure about some super jump though thats kinda ..........just think thats a bit much tbh.
