So now that we're acquainted of some of the limitations of Exotics in the accessible bold (mainly abandoned one Alien weapon & one Alien gearpiece can be able at a time), its time to accessible up the possibilities to discussion. What do you wish to see from these signature accoutrements and careful pieces. I've got some account in mind.
1, Learn from TD1's archetype in what works and what doesn't. A able assignment was had from the aboriginal & aboriginal alien guns. They were air-conditioned to attending at, but the accepted assessment was that assorted Top Ends were better. They just weren't strong enough, and even afterwards accepting adapted weren't account it to many. Abounding beforehand exotics aswell didn't use the best alternative accessible (like Warlord accepting a Archetypal AK-47 over a Black Market AK-74), which added bound customization potential. There weren't abounding Alien accent pieces either, and although they were actually altered and interesting, they didn't actually authority up so acceptable already you got 3-4 pieces of set accent - Ninjabike bag accepting the exception, until Classified hit the scene. But afterwards Exotics brought added accident to the table, with added aboveboard altered allowances that added damage. Abounding of the altered archetypal Exotics were aswell a hit with some exceptions, mainly those that lacked customization. Which leads me to....
2, Hinder customization as little as possible. Bigger yet, don't. Now, I'm not adage I allegation a box-fed Double Butt shotgun (but if they wanna bandy a DP-12 at us, I will not say now). But like I said, abounding Exotics in TD1 fell abbreviate because their customization did. I REALLY capital to like the Tommy Gun, but abandoned accepting the Magazine aperture to plan with aching it badly. Thompson M1 suffered the aforementioned issue, basically authoritative it a worse UMP. (And really, their altered advantage was garbo.) Exotics should be optimized for action behindhand of the archetypal used. Did the abject archetypal not accept a foregrip slot? Bandy some balustrade on that thing. A anchored butt end? A new custom/izable cage brake. If an Alien accept to accept a fixed custom accessory, accumulate it to one at best, like a shotgun with a custom asphyxiate mod in the butt aperture (sorta arguable back Division shotguns don't accept annihilation for that category, but you get the point.) These anchored accessories should have above displayable stats to a lot of alternatives to angle on them a bit, and highlight what makes that gun so special.
3, Above achievement is a must. This is affectionate of obvious, and apparently already about affirmed to be the case with the admission lot. Weapon aspects and administration is currently accepting consistently formed on even as I type, so actually Exotics don't allegation to do abundant added than accomplish above accident than their accustomed counterparts, afore factoring in their altered perk. If their abject accident isn't above by a bright allowance or at all, that altered aptitude had bigger reaaaaally accomplish up for it. I feel kinda advantaged adage this, but the bound accessories alternative will force players to aces and accept added than ever. And if an Alien is to be acclimated at all, we apperceive what accept to be done.
4, Don't decay time on Alien Sidearms. As abundant as I abhorrence to say it, if we can abandoned accouter one Alien weapon at once, I actually agnosticism anyone but the a lot of adherent Ballistic Shield users would bother accouterment an Alien Sidearm. Abandoned exception I see if we can get an Alien Sidearm, and one Alien Primary or Secondary weapon at once, but I agnosticism this will be the case.
5, Accent Affinity with Sets? Last bold saw 7 alien accent pieces. Abandoned one actually ashore about for long. The Ninjabike enjoyed its continued activity of account acknowledgment to its adeptness to calculation as a Set accent piece. Now I don't in actuality apprehend this to become the case in TD2 - Ninjabike afterwards all accustomed humans to run bifold 4-piece sets simultaneously, potentially. We don't actually apperceive big the new sets will be though. 4 or 6 section sets again? Even a 6 section set would still leave a aperture accessible for an Alien 7th. Accepting all the pieces just appropriate surrounding it could be a claiming though. Will they affluence the alteration with compatibility, or will it all be allotment of the grind?
6, Accomplish a arena - You -will- be seen. I anticipate they've got the actualization allotment covered, but I don't wanna just apprehension Exotics on someone's back: I wish these things to command absorption in action too. They should complete like they backpack some OOMPH compared to their accustomed counterparts. Like, I wanna run into a mission, The Division 2 Boosting and out of the gunfire, I apprehend something alien and strange, like "Wait, that doesn't complete like any gun I've run into yet. (turns to teammates) Is that a..."
7, I wouldn't say no to some returning/cameo Exotics. Some were accepted abundant for sure, but I'm acquisitive that even abiding favorites get a bit of a rework with at atomic a altered different perk. The account doesn't allegation to be bound to TD1 either - Ubisoft has several amateur to aces from. Some from Far Cry abandoned would acutely plan afterwards searching antic or out of abode - Bull, Bushman, Ripper & Shredder calmly appear to mind. I would annihilate for an Alien Vector. Not even an exaggeration - I'm actually gonna annihilate for an Alien Vector.
Ok, that's abundant out of me. You could award off a DZ aural my walls of text, I swear. Anyways, I wanna apperceive your input. What do you achievement to see in these hopefully endgame-worthy accoutrement of abolition to ammunition the hype?
