Do the faction skins in Star Wars Battlefront give any advantages or disadvantages to the player? Such as increasing the hitboxes, making it much easier to get headshots on players with the Twi'lek or Sallustian skins. And for the Scout Trooper and Shadow Trooper, give better vision, for the scout, and turn invisible with the Shadow Trooper? I am not at a high enough level to purchase these skins yet, but was curious so I can spend credits wisely.
Definitely the camouflage factor would be the reason here -- the stormtrooper/snowtrooper outfits are damn near impossible to see on the ice worlds, but easy as anything to spot on Endor. The opposite is true for the Rebel outfits (somewhat, as they are not totally one color). I personally bought a stormtrooper outfit that doesn't wear a helmet, hoping that the blaring white body suit was diminished by the fact that they saw my face, giving pause to firing at me (with little to no success of course). I do try to change my skin to match the environment for any advantage though.
