Repair tool is it OP or is it just right or is it not enough?

My honest opinion is it over powered. No cool down and repairs faster than one tank can shoot maybe two I haven't tried it enough to know! But just curious what people think. I can't believe it doesn't get abused more!!

    I was repairing a tank in a slug fest and the repair tool couldn't keep up. I don't know what my friendly was fighting but they kinda lost.

    Were you using the Engineer specialization? Was he taking damage from multiple sources? What was the enemy tank?

    No one the engineer spec, only one source and like I said I don't know what they were fighting.

    Use the engineer spec gives significantly higher repairing rate.

    Mostly, I think it's okay as is. The person(s) repairing get taken out soon enough unless the enemy are completely oblivious or their tank isn't being supported in any way by infantry. I'm very biased though, I go buff up the tiniest of scratches on any friendly tank I see. I'm gonna start charging for my services for it takes a mighty toll on this numpty's k/d :D

    Yeah, reminds me of the old BF3 days before repair tools were nerfed and tank battles were decided by whoever had the most engineers behind them. It should still be a viable tactic but it heals far too much damage in such a short time.

    I think it's weak, but that's solely because it can't damage enemy vehicles or burn enemies. :|

    Because it can't repair disables, no cool down seems appropriate. However, should that change then a cool down would be required.

    And how can they be OP if they can't damage enemy Tonks!

    Does it really matter? Team work makes the dream work, and being a gunner on a tank (as a support who can also repair it), is the fastest way to level up on a tank, IMO. I just wish repairing a tank gaining you experience on that tank, however.

    We need to think of the repair tool as more like quick repair and medpacks. You should get a limited amount "ammo" for the repair tool and then it should be set on a hard timer. That is to say it will replenish itself automatically after say about 60 seconds.

    If you want full repairs you can go to a station. Infinite damage sponging is bad for gameplay. Teamwork should be rewarded but is should have constraints just like everything else. Repair tool should be there to get you out of a jam, not to effectively provide you with a deflector shield.

    The repair rate’s fine but they need to give more points for risking yo **** to do it. That’s partly why currently so few do it

    Should have an overheat but fix disables from outside the tank.

    It can cause an enemy trying to destroy the tank to punch his screen instead. That is a bit OP :D (April joke)

    Very buggy, especially the animation of the torch (sometimes no flame) and the indicator of how much is repaired and gets repaired. Also unrealistic when the tank drives backwards and you slide with it while repairing. DICE where is the realisme?

    All of the realism budget has been expended on immersive screen-shake.
    ...and slow turret turning speed

    it's very realistic however to fix a tanks 'health' from anywhere on the outside of the vehicle by pointing a burny torch at it

    ok

    Hitting it with a hammer would.be more realistic.....

    …. Also unrealistic when the tank drives backwards and you slide with it while repairing. ...

    That's my favourite part, especially when it eventually stops dragging you underneath and you're suddenly exposed, repair torch in hand, dying in a hail of bullets cursing the Battlefield Gods.

    Plus, it gives you a chance to dust the cobwebs from the underbelly of the tank driver who up to that point was employing the Drax method of invisibility. :D
