    I don't have the FOC Demo so I can't judge this stuff for myself. So for those who have the FOC demo and use the Infiltrator, is the Infiltrator still playable?

    After reading what HMS has done to multiplayer in the Demo Log thread, I can't imagine being able to play as it. I've heard that the Scatter Blaster was overpowered so I understand that they've decreased it's power (twice). However, they've also made it so cloaking uses up something they call "resources" three times faster when sprinting or dashing and have made cloaking take twice as long to refill at the same time they made cloaking only last 7 seconds instead of 10.

    Every class having Sprint/Dash was bad enough but now they've made it that it doesn't go well with Cloak. The Scout relies on speed and stealth so making them take away from each other sounds terrible.

    These changes were said to have been made on the 14th. So how has playing as an Infiltrator been since then?

    Still pretty much the easiest class to go with. Doesn't really bother me much.

    It was my favorite class until they messed up the Path Blaster. The gun now feels more clunky, and the crosshair/weapon spread made the gun unusable for me.

    100% this. I still play it, but they have kinda killed the class for me with what they did to the Path Blaster. It doesn't exactly blast a path anymore, lol. I have found myself playing the Titan and Destroyer a lot more since the gun nerf. The Infiltrator is still good, but it's been turned into more of a hit and run class.

    It may have been a "little" overpowered, but their was nothing wrong with the crosshair and feeling of the gun.

    It could just be me, but I think the easiest class to play is the Titan.

    Notice how in the demo log that 90% of the changes were nerfs toward the Inflitrator. People got a little mad that they couldn't get a single kill and make HMS nerf everything.

    I'd probably put Titan second to easiest, maybe Destroyer being tied with 2nd easiest to play as well. The classes seem so balanced now.

    Besides the Infiltrator now being under powered , everything is fine.

    I don't find it underpowered. I still have success with it.

    I'm in the same boat. While I am still pretty good with the scout, there has been a huge decrease in my kill score and I have had to completely change my tactics and go to a hit and run approach. I tend to get more assists than kills as a result.

    I suck with it now because of the changes. Ruined the class.

    Aim for the head using Pathblaster. It'll increase your kills. Also don't forget to use your vehicle weapons as well.

    You gotta remember the Scout isn't meant to run in on enemies like the bigger classes. Hit and run is their MO. Always has been.

    I agree the classes seem nicely balanced, with the exception of the Infiltrator. It just feels underpowered compared to the other classes. I am still doing well with it, but it now has some glaring issues that I feel need to be addressed. It was a little op at the beginning, but it seems like it was hit with the nerf bat a bit too hard.
