This works for me, I just hope the shock troopers target vehicles.

If these go in the regular frag pool, I'll just need about a month of hd's to max this one out.

Total horseshit. They are already at Level 4000 for all the Imps while I have to struggle to get by.

But at least a good sign of good faith.

Midge is right. While giving Rebels sharpshooter GR is a token move, it's not anything to get excited about. The Rebel sharpshooter multiplier isn't as good as the Imperial sniper multiplier. Still, it'll be interesting to see if the Sullustan skin makes it amount to anything. I'll be curious to see Imperial reactions to this news. No doubt, they're probably thrilled to _death_ about finally getting the OP vanguard equivalent. :-)

Okay so the obvious questions are:

Is this in addition to what is already in place? If not, which GR is it replacing?

Yes, imperial snipers have a greater multiplier against infantry but doesn't the reb sharpshooter have a greater multiplier against mech?

I'm in agreement with the opinion of this change being a token move at this point in the game. Thus begins another pendulum swing..........

Awesome! I can't wait to unlock it!!!

And they did not remove the 26% (188 vs 162) higher damage Armory Equipment bonus that Jets have over Jumps!

I just noticed this:
It looks like the base Calculated Damage (from https://papajessie.github.io/swcpy/) Jets is much higher than Jumps as well at 2592 vs 1813 at Prestige!

Calculated Damage X Armory Bonus
2592 X 1.88 = 4872.96
1813 X 1.62 = 2937.06
4872.96 / 2937.06 = 1.65

So max level Rebel Jets do 65% more damage than Imperial Jumps!!! (and 26% more health)

Jets crush Jumps!

Two words: hero defense. It should be quick to get to L4-5. Anything higher than that is tough for everyone.
