The funniest glitch from the BF3 beta is back on Battlefield 4: the stretched soldier.
Awesome! Can't wait to plant a charge as a stretched soldier ;)
God yes, my daily Lulz right there
I've been playing for hours on PC, and have yet to see this :/
What is it about the way these guys make games that means this continues to happen? I mean it's obviously funny, but it's weird that it's a recurring thing. Of course maybe they put in there on purpose as a reference, but that makes it less funny. Glitches are funny because they're unintended.
Yes, I think they put it on purpose this time.
Why so serious?
This time its an Easter egg.
There isn't an actual confirmation that it's an easter egg, and I don't see why it would be. Maybe if it was an NPC it would be an easter egg, but it just gives a disadvantage to the stretched person as they can be seen easier.
Does the hit box stretch too? Or just the player.
^yeah, i was wondering the same thing... in the bf3 beta the bug didn't do anything negative...it just looked crazy...and not only could you get a stretched neck, i thought the running full speed while in this crazy whacked out prone position thing was even creepier... but neither effected hit boxes...although, in the beta, the hit boxes were so broken it didn't matter anyway...
I think it has to do with the way the first and 3rd person animations interact with one another. The game has a cover system much like the ones in the Crysis. The very same kind of stretched ligaments happens in those games when using cover and being able to see your own body in first person.
Its easy to see why old glitches return. They took an early early build of BF3 and built BF4 off of it.
Noticed that, suddenly i saw a guy with 2 meters long chest,lol
I always think of terminator when i see that pic
Announcer:WE HAVE THE BOMB Soldier:Oh,so this is the bomb.Oops.
For some reason the stretch soldier reminds me of peyton manning.
Hmmmmmm as much as I love BF & BFBC, I've just came of the beta after about 2 hours and it feels to me more like BF 3.5 it's virtually the same, I wish I hadn't played it now as I'm now having secound thoughts about buying it on release if at all.
IMO, BC2 was more of a BC1.5, but that didn't make any less fun. I'm hopping on the beta after work, so I'll have my impressions down by tonight.
i think the thing that is selling this game for me is the variety of maps. dont let the one beta map put you off dude :)
Did you play it on PS3/360? If so that's why. Battlefield 4 won't shine unless on PS4, Xbone or PC.
Many people were put off by the bf3 beta only having Metro as a playable map, and now look at how bf3 had changed over time.
the funniest thing was...Metro ended up being played more than every map in the game...combined...according to battlelog's stats on it a few months ago...
@kleptic Because of the easy points.
It's not just points (as there are plenty of 100 eagles there), but people that don't play BF as they used to anymore, specially on consoles which have less players and feel empty on huge maps (giving that extra push to look for a small map). I enjoy it. Small maps provide restricted areas and corridors crowded with people for you to shoot while sometimes things can get too slow on big maps (specially if I'm playing alone, just a quick match or a warm-up). Of course I still play big maps regularly, I even think they're more fun, but requires minimum teamwork... When you just hook up with strangers that may left the game at any time or not help at all, just to find yourself spawning on base and walking half a mile to meet combat, it gets frustrating.
Looks like he was on the receiving end of a Chuck Norris uppercut.
Who is Chuck Norris?
Your life is in danger my friend.
Well iam dissapointed its just like playing bf3 but on a new map graphics are shocking on ps3 pop in is terrible.. Crashing every match Yes I know its a beta but I was so underwhelmed and the destruction is worse than bf3. I just hope its better on next gen consoles because I played the beta 2 hours and would be happy to never play bf4 again it was that bad and this is someone who has played 100s of hours of bc2 and bf3.
Your playing on the ps3. That right there is your problem.
I havent had any of the problems you have had, it's a beta for reason to find out problems like your having. And seige of shanghai isn't the best map to show off building destruction as most of the buildings are huge and they skyscraper is the party peice of that map. Graphics are better on bf4 than bf3 but the other guy is right the problem is your playing on ps3 same goes to if your playing on Xbox. Bf4 is meant to be played on next gen and pc. I want to play it on my pc I can run it but I don't have the early access for it on my pc so I'm stuck playing it on ps3 but for a ps3 game when released it's still going to be a great game anyway. Excuse any bad spelling etc I'm tired as hell
BF3 had so many issues with PS3/X360 with graphics and stability in its beta phase planting C4 caused crashes sometimes. I expect BF4 to be a little worse, but I hope it all gets smoothed out by launch or in the next gen versions.
Now all we need is some dude made of rocks, a guy on fire, and some sort of invisible woman...
I see what you did there
They do have incendiary grenades and invisible people bugs are in a lot of games. Now we just need to see about getting a guy made of rocks.
made of rock? that would be cheating! but give me Silver Surfer please! I'll wipe out all the pesky jets!
Ill take Jessica alba over silver surfer any day.
ahh I remember that from the BF3 beta. I about crapped myself out of both fear and laughter at the same time
Pretty sure you can play as a stretch armstrong loadout in this game! Yep, its confirmed.
@Pandehz thanks for the laugh lol
Looks like mecha-neck from he-man.
