    Extifer Stiffy is what Lyanden calls me.

    I don't like the name spotter. So inaccurate with his abilities and what he is actually doing as you describe.

    How about a code name only?
  10. Extifer

    Extifer Stiffy is what Lyanden calls me.

    That doesn't sound too bad. Traditionally when I think of spotter, I think of the individuals that is part of the sniper team.

    Personally this class sounds more like a role suited in doing RECCE(term Canadians/Brits use) (what Americans call RECON).

    More information below, if you need ideas for the class name.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Marine_Corps_Force_Reconnaissance

    P.S Force Recon sounds like a bad ass name, perhaps name the class Force Recon as it is the grown up version of your old recon.

    Edit:

    Bear in mind that although I don't like the name Spotter, that shouldnt hinder you with going with Spotter if that is what you and the Dev Team go with.

    Recon is going to be used for the Mobcon tree. Force Recon is great and all, but I'm trying to keep names simple so it's easier to translate down the road.

    As for the name, I'll change it to Surveyor since that's more acceptable to you. NOTD is, after all, intended to be at least semi-realistic.

    As realistic as you can make killing zombies on the Moo- Oh, check that. Mars.

    How about Operator?

    Shitposting aside, I'm sticking with Surveyor (because he provides surveillance) and Recon (because he provides reconnaissance) because Operator is too vague. I may use Operator for another class, but for now it's a mystery as to which.

    Guys that are part of Tier 1 groups in military are usually called Operators or Assaulters depending on the scope of what they are doing.

    UPDATES
    • Smokescreen was replaced with Drone Support. This was done to give the Surveyor some combat presence and also because the Guardsman got a Smoke Grenade.
    • Minor stat changes across all abilities. Mostly energy cost adjustments.
