    You guys are both nuts. She's fine as she is, people just don't feel like using her properly (because it tends to require entering the building). She's just as good as Thatcher or Twitch for gadget destruction, plus she has better guns and frags and to top it all off she's a light. There was a thread about this just two days ago.

    If IQ needs any changes at all it's the removal of friendly gadgets from her scanner.

    "She's just as good as Thather or Twitch for gadget destruction" Mate what? Can she destroy anything through a reinforced wall? No. Can she infiltrate silently and almost undetected to take out gadgets and hurt enemies? No. And IQ has better weapons then Twitch? Don't make me laugh.

    She is as good as Thatcher and Twitch. She can destroy devices through barricades, breachable floors and ceilings. She can't be hindered by mute or Jäger devices. No she cannot hit anything through reinforced walls but No one can so that's an unfair question, a good mute placement behind a shield and it renders the twitch device worthless. Thatcher is more likely to get those devices but Thatcher always gets tied up by bandit. And yes she can enter silently and undetected. In most cases in able to clear a room of devices before the enemy realizes what's going on using her suppressed pistol.

    Twitch can't defend herserlf while getting devices and is well countered by mute.
    Thatcher is really well countered by Jäger at this point in the games life & bandit gives him a run for his money.

    We can talk pros and cons all day but what we can't say is she isn't as good as Thatcher or Twitch. It's a matter of preference but you have to think more and outside the box when using IQ and I think that's where players have their issues.

    I thought about this idea but what if the device was effected like Jackals headgear by mute devices?

    Essentially her ability would then be seriously NERFED right? Since she has to be close to a device to be effective, under it, over it or at a barricaded door or window?

    To my knowledge, emps can and will effect through walls so yeah it's totally fair. If you need to go trough a wall Thather's your man end of discussion. Yes almost everyone has a counter has a counter in this game, that's the name of the game. Does IQ have counters? Not really.Does that make her good? No it doesn't. If you let her in side to clear everything inside before you notice, you're deaf. IQ just isn't reliable enough to be really viable. Can she work? Absolutely but not enough.

    The only thing that makes any Op good is the person using them. Her guns and loadout options are second none and she is VERY effective at gadget destruction. So, the bottom line is, I disagree with your questioning of if she's as good as Thatcher or Twitch.

    "She's just as good as Thather or Twitch for gadget destruction" Mate what?"

    She is as good as either of them BUT she's a bit more difficult to play. Even though she cant just lob an An EMP egg at a wall to destroy devices.

    The individual player using IQ is going to be a major factor in how effectively she can be used, that goes for every operator in the game.

    She may not have direct offensive options like thatcher and twitch's gadgets, which can destroy electronics without engaging directly, but IQ is able to gather intel while still maintaining fighting ability with her sidearm. The detecting is also very effective as a support to the rest of your team, finding cameras and traps without putting yourself in harms way or using a limited resource (twitch drones & emps). Every operator has a solid place on a team if used correctly and in cooperation with other operators.
