    The Disguise skill for the Scientist is useless...

    It simply changes your colors and that's it.
    You have the same faction symbol and the same body style.
    So if the enemy has even a basic idea of what characters are available
    they'll see right through your new paint job.

    So anyone with half a mind can tell that a gold Shockwave isn't an Autobot.
    Hell even your jet exhaust stays the same color...
    An Autobot should not have a red Decepticon symbol and purple exhaust.

    Just so you know, it's pretty sad.

    Maybe its more of a long range thing? At a certain range all you can see is a red nametag for the enemy team. Thats usually enough to shoot at. If this hides you it could save a couple of deaths?

    Sure there isnt more to it?

    Not that I've seen, every time I get close I get shot.
    Even my teammates shoot at me. XD

    That's pretty pathetic.

    And it's not a user thing? Like the Spy's disguise from TF2? You see yourself as what you are, but enemies see their allies?

    At least it confuses one side then. Sadly, the wrong side.

    As far as I've seen it's just how you appear, I've smashed fake Autobots just because I could tell their chassis were wrong.

    To a enemy is shows you as a ally on the radar.

    I take it as a way to run away without pursuit.

    I don't use it anyway when there is a turrett and other offensive options.

    That was my point, it's sad though because it was one of the skills I was looking forward to to most.

    That and the fact I remember hearing the Scientist was the sniper class but it's got no sniper weapons.

    I still use him as a sniper when i don't support heal.

    Fly to the highest point and use a Null ray or battle pistol.

    Not really, I mean you're all be on the same team it just changes your colors.
    So you'll still be a bot if that's your team.

    It was hilarious one time when the game started and I turned on Disguise, all my teammates stopped and turned to look at me for a moment then they all realized what happened. I thought I was gonna get gunned down. :lol

    Can your own team kill you? I suppose it makes sense for it to be possible, just wondering if it is indeed possible.

    Oh yeah, you take damage alright. We have a few people initiate the Whirlwind ability when they would get overwhelmed, only for their teammates to get there at the time and get caught up in the attack.
