Barely half the length of the Evade AA.

I agree, but it is still very useful. So many times I've avoid being assassinated, splattered, stuck or punched in the face. In the end it's how you use it that truly brings out its usefulness.

I prefer the shorter length, but it'd be nice if it also has some kind of short knock back or something on people who were like right on you when you use it.

It should be the way it is in SP. Chief uses it and he dashes about 5-ish feet instead of maybe 2 feet. for MP.

Made a custom game with heavily reduced gravity and drastically increased movement speed. Thruster packs get you across the map now.

Jetpack is a joke just like it was in reach. The thruster is pathetically weak because of its range.

I agree. I think it needs to go around 1.5 as far is it currently does, and it needs to keep the player in the first person view, allowing them to still aim while boosting.

i think they could buff the range, but if it goes farther at the same speed it shouldnt have invincibility frames.
