Gameranx: "Donning heavy armor will slow down your running speed in BF4's multiplayer."
This genre needs some good ole realism, good stuff!
It is perfect. If you remember in BC2 so many people used this and made the other pointless, at least now it has a downside to it.
Oh now that sounds interesting. I wonder will all the perks come with little penalties like this? Like if you get the Ammo/Grenade Perk, will you also move slower. With the Sprint Perk you'll run faster but for short bursts, things like that.
actually it sprint is now sprint longer, not faster.
Some of my favourite BF features were in BF Special Forces and also BF 2142. Give me a Grappling hook,Zip line Perk, optical camouflage etc!!!
Little things like that would make BF4 more realistic and balanced out.
This sounds good. Its gonna make you think on when armor will be better used in a match.
Good for a sniper. I wonder if it protects from headshots
Definitley good for a sniper, but it better not protect from headshots that would just be annoying and op
I can see this perk getting extremely aggravating, if the whole enemy team is full of snipers wearing heavy armor. There really should be armor-piercing ammo attachments or perks that counteract and neutralize this armor perk.
Probably going to bring up the auto guided armour piercing hand gun bullet perk later :)
I belive that the armor only helps the torso area, at least that is what the description said on the list of perks that was released
DICE have said that the armor perk will ONLY benefit the chest region. Meaning the head, legs, and arms are as vulnerable as they were before :) "Meanwhile, the Defense path will net you ARMOR, COVER, FLAK, and QUICK REGEN. These grant you increased protection from shots to the chest, a decreased rate of being suppressed, decreased damage from explosions, and a shorter time span before the out-of-combat health regeneration kicks in." http://blogs.battlefield.co...
I just want to know the damn system recommended specs already. When will they release that info?
That balance! About time I saw something like this in a FPS game. Still don't know if I should get it though...
No more running sharks in Battlefield? Good riddance.
Yes, MAG had this in 2010.
Im really excited about being able to sight our scopes in for different ranges. It going to make it a lot more manageable getting those 700+ meter shots.
i wonder if it will weigh you down when jumping from buildings and/or helicopters/jets...?
Armor + Sprint. Problem solved.
