I have not yet played the game but I was wondering if the promos were gameplay significant enough to balance or otherwise to get from PlaidHat direct? It's significantly more expensive which I understand makes the "worth it" question at least somewhat subjective but my main concern is if it helps balance the game or significantly changes it?

I haven't used them, but not sure they're that great. Proximity Mine is interesting as when you're running you could set it up to help get away if they're on your tail. But you really have to know where to lead the hunter. EMP seems less useful. But they might be fun to use.

For me, the ones that come with the game seem more useful. Stealth, Adrenaline, smokes, flash, some of the special abilities, etc...

Agreed. I don't think I've used them even though I have them. The ones that come with the game are more useful.

Agreed with the previous posters, I've proxied them and only used them once cause they seemed weaker on paper, and they felt weaker in game as well.
