I agree with hydra. It will change the assalt class from having a noob attack weapon to a noob defense shield. This is a weapon that will be either overused, or not used at all. To top it off, probably closer to what hydra was thinking.... Think of how stupid it would look for a squad of dudes to be running right at you with their shields out. Does that ever happen in real life? If you are going to give them shields then take away the guns and give them swords. While you are at it give them big feathery helmets and allow them to make a tortoise formation. You can then call them Romans. Not only is this stuff completely unrealistic... it would make for some seriosuly goofy gameplay.

'[tRMad Mac']Find me evidense of this actually being widely used by combat forces (no, not MP's), and I might approve.

Same here... don't recall seeing anything in the real world like it....though it would act as an incentive for playing as assault , whereas now there are not many reasons. Personally assault class bores me but something like this might make it more interesting.

That would looks halarous when a tank pulls up and blasts them away for 20 kills at once:lol:.

Romans: what is that? *bam* Tank gunner: owned

I can imagine there being ROMAN squads which form testudos and walk inside hangars, capping flags.

No.

A shield wouldn't look right. Plus they're not widely used in combat anyway.

I would say yes, just because I could then say the original BF2 was somewhat more realistic. :p
