Im a ps4 player, sitting on 1000+ hours. I literally never buy skins. Well the other day i was playing a Legionnaire Leon, he destroyed me with no Back Stab or Clover sound. Then it hit me, the Legionnaire has a different back stab sound. Im an idiot i know, but like i said i never buy skins. So my question is....

What other skins if any have some type advantage?

I don't think what you said could be considered advantage, however:

Robscoop's hammer is harder to see.

And Gnariachi has a disadvantage, because you can hear his weedlings when they are hiding in bushes etc.

Yeah not too big of an advantage. I just remember thinking this fool doesn't have back stab. i feel like newer or less observant players may mis judge the amout of damage out put, due to the changing sound.

It's the same sound as clover of honor only it makes that sound every time it hits to the back causing a spam of hits that sound a higher frequency than normal.

I'd hardly call say that some different sound effects somehow marginally improves game-play. :sleep:

But for what it's worth: Voltar Bonaparte and Cynical Vinnie both have very distinct music that play when using certain abilities. This music makes it much easier to time their ability durations overall.

That's actually true too and I've known to take advantage of that. But like you said it's extremely marginal.

The specimen Sentry skin has really silent sound cues for both of the abilities.

I still remember how there was a thread made on how Shinobi Rocco perhaps gave some skin-based advantages through being quieter to play. :huh:

If I remember correctly, Creeper Clunk's explosion sound is much quieter than the others.
