Battlefield 4: Battle Pickups will be in “all” maps in most modes, guns to have 240,000 variations each, Adaptive Camos detailed
nice to know
I'm a little disappointed that the Barrett .50 cal sniper rifle isn't an unlockable loadout weapon :( They should make it the last sniper unlocked... That would really motivate people to make it all the way down the recon path.
Well I'm glad you're not developing for dice.
You think it's too overpowered? Eh, that's reasonable. I just personally like the weapon. You don't think they could make it a near-impossible unlock? Like maybe on the fifth recon class silver star or something? I'd work for it lol
You call the 5'th recon service star near-impossible? Lol.. This weapon is a 1 shot kill, it's should stay a pick up
Yep, agreed. If DICE gives this as an unlock, it would cause mayhem and more problems than solutions. I can already imagine people fighting over Battle Pickups once they spawn. Heck, within the team/squad itself their would be chaos as to who would use this. Still, would be nice since it might help people take out OP choppers, etc.
most of the sniper rifles are 1 shot kill on real life and most games, in BF3 they are way underpower
Im not too exited about this battle pic ups, I just know its going to be exploited to death by trolls
I hate it when you can pick up weapons in military shooters from killed enemies or when they spawn somewhere on the map. The first thing you learn in the army is to never ever pick up weapons because they could be tempered with.
good thing this is a videogame Reality is for idiots ;)
Ugh god... we could be looking at a camp fest situation here and games where whole teams rush for the most powerful weapons....this will need some meticulous balancing and you all know it means every match will have at least 1 or 2 dicks that camp these spots :/
another pain in the ass/useless achievement or assignment for killing with this and all available pickups and how fun is that going to be when certain players will just sneak around the area to kill and knife you for the dogtags not caring about the actual game going on
The spots will be randomized.. Don't worry
I really hope so.
Pickup weapons aren't meant for games like Battlefield. If you want weapon pickups in your game, you should start from little to nothing then work your way up, not start out with a full loadout then find something even more powerful.
i think it will work out, a 50 cal rifle would kill no matter where you hit the target. you cant exactly give a 1 hit kill weapon to everyone in a load out. Dice said it spawns once and that is it for the round. i cant think of any other way to have a super powerful weapon in the game. now at least the 50 cal can have realistic damage and not be just a joke.
yes you could, make it very hard and innaccurate when trying to hit someone close range, slower movement due to its weight and slower aiming. Also make it one of the top level unlock guns.... thats it soorted right there...
except sniper rifles get more accurate the closer you are to your target, and making it a top level unlock will only limit its use for like a month until everyone has it unlocked anyway. plus its not just the 50 cal we are taking about. there is going to be lots of kick ass weapons that pack a punch now. if you give a super powerful gun to the masses you get this..... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
what a about a Minigun for Battle Pickup?
have them available but don't force them ingame just add a no pickups options for the servers searches also hoping for the no commander option
I hope they allow servers without pickups If they want some modes like scavanger to have pickups thats fine but to force it on every map is total crap, I DON'T want it!
Be good if pick ups were randomised everyday on dynamic maps via the cloud so a constant pattern could not be learned.
