Beefing up the Highlanders (Scots)
This new squad is quickly becoming my favourite unit to play in Verdun. They look visually striking, have excellent voice acting behind them and they pack a punch with their SMLE's. However, I would like to see the Highlanders get some explosive firepower in the form of grenades.

I was trying to glean some information as to what the Scottish Kit involved and I came across this page, which gives a nice explanation as to what exactly the Scots wore into battle:

Solid rifle and the best squad type in the game, of course they need explosives. They don't need buffing.

They are a recon squad (or at least after the hotfix) so their power is more in rifling/recon/forward spawning.
As you've pointed out yourself: They pack a punch with their SMLEs. They are a recon squad and already more than powerful enough.

Balance > "Realism"
Yes, they are quite good as is. A solid recon squad.

Also Leo, great rework on the P14/17 aperture. It does the real thing a lot more justice.
Was kind of hoping to see a new knife, but I'm not all that torn up about it.

I do think they could have added a new pistol, like the Lancaster or Colt 1903.

If you can find some evidence of them using either in combat it could be considered.

How about a Colt Model 1917 for the Americans since the devs have apparently gone back on their statements that they would add no further weapons? God knows they could use some variety pistol-wise...

You know I agree to it being added. Problem is the new weapon is just a small tweak to existing weapons. But I still hold out hope.

I wouldn't listen to Soldier of Fortune when it comes to accuracy. Sure, they sell some useful pieces of kit, but they've no idea how it was used. Case in point, the man in those photos is wearing his kilt back to front...

I mean, do they really need to be beefed up? I'd like it if they replaced the trench club with a trench knife like the other recon squads, and I think they should have more P14 and less SMLE's, but that's because I'd like them to feel a little bit more different than the Tommies squad.

Well for what's it's worth they are just a re skin of the Tommies and a copy of both Tommies and Canadians loadouts

I mean, the P14 is a small tweak, too.

How is that an issue? P14?
