Battlefield 4: Four Ways to Restore Recon

"By now, you have most likely seen the explosive and beautifully detailed Battlefield 4 reveal trailer. While the action-packed footage was entertaining, my focus remained set on Battlefield’s true focus: multiplayer. Having been a fan of the series since the debut of Battlefield 1942 over a decade ago, I've come to know and love the ever-developing formula of this popular competitive FPS. That doesn't mean I’m completely satisfied with DICE’s modifications over the years though. The most recent entry, Battlefield 3, left a majority of Recon players unhappy. DICE attempted to take the lone wolf sniper and make him/her the most team-oriented player on the field, but the result was the complete castration of the class. Here are some ways that Battlefield 4 can return the sniper to its former glory." - JPS

So, to sum it up, bring back the recon class from Bad Company 2.

totally agree with the both of you. recon (in BF3) was the worse class in the game,if not the worse of any modern shooter game i've played.

trenso11276d ago

just bring back the bc2 class more or less at least the motion sensor ball let them call in mortars again i think was fair, they couldn't spam it cause of the cool down unlike support in bf3 and it was a deterrent so people wouldnt run right into mortar fire

Yes sir calling in mortars was excellent.

Yeah, I feel like there's nothing wrong with Recon class. Granted, most people that play it only try to get really really long headshots (and really, we've all done that a few times) all round long, but the tools that Recon has are really really useful, and if you play the class right it's pretty great. Granted, I'll always favor Engineer over everything just because I love that playstyle best, but I use all the classes effectively depending on what is required at the particular time in the round.

The writer does have a point. In Bf3, the recon's gadgets are solely reliant on whether his team uses them or not. Every other class allows for independent play.

I hated how all those SOFLAM lock-ons I got went to waste.

LycanSoldier1276d ago

I liked the BF3 Recon, they had a lot of stuff going for them.

Motion Sensors.
Sniping from far away.
Semi-Auto Rifles compared to Assaults at mid-range.

The only change I would make is a slight buff on the OHK range of bolt actions.
