Recognizing teammates in close combat can be very hard.
Dunno if anyone else has this problem, but I often find it very hard to distinquish freind from foe. Names don't appear reliably or clearly enough and when people are using the same or similar skins it can be really difficult to telll who you should be shooting.
Teamates are outlined faintly at distance but not close up... Im sure there are many ways to make teammates more recognizable when near, from outlines to a squad colored arm-band or visible item on the player model that is only rendered on teammates. You could even have something which only rendered is another team is within a certain radius
Some people may think it is part of the skill of the game, but when a teammate and opponent can be physically identiacl in every respect, I think it is a little unfair as there seem to be literally no way to be sure who is who.
I really hope that other people agree and that Respawn think about looking at this, I can think of a few fights which may have gone differently if I hadn't turned my back on that player with the same legendary skin as my teammate!!! The confusion can work in both directions!! xDD
Please put in better way to recognize teammates close up, either outlines or colored accessory for teammates... optional with "always on" or "when enemy near" or "off" choices.
