Echelon Faction Removed from XDefiant Server Test Due to Invisibility Bug

If you've been playing the XDefiant server test and wondering why the Splinter Cell class is missing, don't worry, it's not a bug – the Echelon faction has been pulled from the game. The reason behind this removal seems to be related to a bug that was making the class overpowered.

One of the key abilities of the Echelon class was the Ghillie Suit, allowing players to turn invisible at the press of a button. However, issues arose as players stayed invisible for extended periods even after firing their weapons. As a result, the Ghillie Suit was disabled to address this problem.


Despite efforts to fix the invisibility issues by removing the Ghillie Suit, the problems persisted, leading to the complete removal of the Echelon faction from the server test.


On top of that, the DedSec's spider-bot ability is also unavailable due to a last-minute bug, making it the third feature to be disabled in this test session.

While these issues may be frustrating for players, it's essential to remember that this is what testing is all about – identifying and addressing problems before the official game launch. The developers are undoubtedly working hard to find solutions to these issues to ensure a smooth gaming experience.
