Yup, after my first day of the beta, I noticed the camping level had went back to the days of BC2. Those screenshots look amazing.

famoussasjohn1013d ago

Adding roof access on Domination is one of the worst ideas. There was a game that had half of their team up there and they'd just shoot rockets and m320s down on you if you tried capping B or C.

MWong1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

I wasn't able to try it but you probably could counter that by going up the elevator in the store next to the A flag. I know in Conquest and Obliteration, this access point is available.

I know last night in a game of Obliteration about 7 out of 24 players on both teams we actually PTO'ing. So the match was esentially 3v4. Everybody else was rooftop camping.

Majin-vegeta1013d ago

@famous

You do know there are ladders on the side when playing Domination right?Also you can bait them with the elevator drop c4 close door get out quick and let it go up they will most likely run to it and *SURPRISE MOFO'S*.

crazyboom1013d ago

I loved those roof campers I just got out my sniper rifle and boom easiest headshots ever :) I just can't believe they never wised up lol.

DirtyLary1012d ago

Can't blame the kids. The map screams rooftop sniping.

Razmossis1012d ago

"By now, everyone knows that Battlefield 4 is one of the best looking games out there."

Honest question.
When people say these things ^^ are they referring to the PC version?
Because I have owned and played BF3, and I have the BF4 beta, on PS3. And to me, these games look absolutely horrible. Unfinished looking, thin, blotchy, bloomy.

I look at The Last Of Us, MGS4, Uncharted, GTAV, etc, and can clearly see that these games look beautiful, GTAV in a broader scale (not up close to things) maybe. I see nothing good looking about BF games when I play them.

So are they talking about PC?

I hate when they sit up there an snipe all day.

SirBradders1013d ago

Then jump in a chopper or jet and blow them of the roof ;-)

MidnytRain1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

It is IMPERATIVE that your squad is balanced. I can't tell you how simple a concept this is, but people want to sit and fail because 4/5 squad members are engineers, or assaults, or recons. If you have one of everything and you stick together, you don't have issues like that.

Matt6661012d ago

its like being a real sniper then, staying in one spot picking off targets, its takes a lot more skill to pick a target off from a distance then to be a qs fag

VENOMACR12271012d ago

Pretty sure a snipers job is to camp. I know it's a game, but have you ever seen real snipers running around on the battlefield with their sniper rifle? No, they are hidden somewhere sniping from a far. If people want to sit on top of buildings, find a way up there and get em.

lsujester1012d ago

That's still loads better than the people running around close quarters with the damn airburst. That weapon is nothing but cheap kills, especially if you have an ammo box reloading it.

Blachek1012d ago

I spent a few hours talking one day to a retired military officer. He was an actual "military commander" he wore headsets that were tapped directly into both Army & Airforce.

After contact with the enemy he was the one who debriefed those involved. Ranging from gun fire exchanges and reconnaissance missions to bomb defusing and cleanup.

He said the 1 type of guy that was the most intense and intimidating, were the snipers. They are trained to be cold blooded, referring to successful shot marks as "pink vapor" or the cloud of blood that is left behind.

He even shared a story about a mission he was involved in where he debriefed a sniper who, due to chatter through their headset, needed to engage somebody with their knife.

Real snipers don't just sit a mile away, they participate. A sniper is more likely to be within a stones throw of hostile enemy than he is his own teammates.

KwietStorm1013d ago

I even spawned on Engineers camping the roof. Engineers.

Feralkitsune1013d ago

If they're working with the recon in their squad, that's actually a good strategy for harassing or shooting down the helicopters on the map. The recon laser designates, Engineer shoots them down with a rocket.

solid_snake36561013d ago

Still better then Camping on Duty Ghosts

DeadlyFire1012d ago

Camping is tactical. If you don't like it kill that camping bitch and get over it. Its not like you don't know their hiding spots.

NaAsAr1013d ago

tell me about it. i have nightmares of the orange silhouette.. :(

hellzsupernova1013d ago

Guess what snipers do. They sit in the same spot for days at a time waiting for the target, it's a strategy get over it

H0RSE1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

But in real life there usually isn't 16 men in a 24 man team designated to sniping... and the snipers are actually trained snipers, not wannabe "elite assassins."

TekoIie1013d ago

Dont worry. Those camper's will have a heart attack when they hear the words, "commander is online" ;)

Hellfire and brimstone. Only in Battlefield :P

DeadlyFire1012d ago

I have not even thought about that, but Commander mode will also be a great way to keep snipers on the move. Artillery that rooftop. :0

Ashby_JC1012d ago

So will the commander have the ability to move snipers on his side??

Rimeskeem1013d ago

The main one looks super photoshopped

GuyThatPlaysGames1012d ago

Graphics don't make up for the sub-par gameplay.

BALLARD321012d ago

I saw six guys come up in an elevator together in the Beta. No joke. Camping is going to be so bad in BF4.

Bobby Kotex1012d ago

But you can see then in stunning detail now.

WarThunder1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

Looks good? yes. stunning? Nope not even close...

ShinMaster1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

These are the least impressive screenshots I've seen of the game so far:

Maybe it's the art direction..? Or bad image compression. And is this on PC? I see some current-gen type issues, like the shadow on the first pic not connecting with the character.

Bolts1013d ago

Obviously PC pics. Look at the textures.

WarThunder1013d ago (Edited 1013d ago )

These screens don't look stunning as they say.

I don't understand why the 10 disagrees. They look bad for next gen. Also i played the Bf4 beta and the online dose look good but nothing impressive o so called "next gen" graphics...

Kleptic1012d ago

From what i can tell, both of those screens have the background glitch many talked about it in the beta...

The city skyline would often 'fog out' depending on the viewing angle...it didn't look necessarily bad, it just made anything more than 300 meters away look extremely hazy or something. My machine did it all through the beta regularly...and it never applied to the playable area, only the background...

and both of those pictures seem to have it...the first is on top of the skyscraper...and normally there is a lot more visible detail in the background from that angle...and the 2nd pic is at ground level looking over the water (from where the building collapses)...which is clearly messed up...you should be able to see the big battle ship back in that bay launches missiles and stuff, but its glitched it out it appears...

not defending anything...I think the game looks great, and plays great for the most part...but its not a crap ton better than bf3...just a bit more refined with some subtle effects added...I do, however, think those pics have a confirmed bug that happened pretty often for a lot of us...

Pandamobile1013d ago

Are you new to N4G or something? Pretty much every submission with screenshots uses one or more buzzwords like "stunning", "phenomenal", "gorgeous", "leaked", "breath-taking", "mind-blowing", etc.

It's hit-farming 101.

TechMech21013d ago

And Xbox one you fanboy

GentlemenRUs1013d ago

A fanboy? What?

IMO = In my opinion

I only play on these console as I have no need to buy something else which does the same thing...

TechMech21013d ago

Oh. Sorry for da confusion. Enjoy your ps4!

TechMech21013d ago

I don't care about this. Battefield 3 was okay, but I really would rather buy a ps4 and play some Killzone!!!!!!!!!! As a future Xbox one owner, I encourage any gamer buying a ps4 to buy Killzone sf. I'm not buying it, and those who are buying a ps4 should enjoy that they have the first next gen fps!!!!!!

Pandamobile1013d ago

We've had next-gen FPS games for a few years now.

TechMech21013d ago

Okay. On consoles. I have a mac. I don't really game on it.

cpayne931012d ago

Sort of kills the excitement of the next gen jump when you game on pc.

0ut1awed1012d ago

^

Exactly, but when we act "meh" about next gen consoles everyone on N4G thinks we are fanboys.

And yes, I'm buying a PS4.

ssj271012d ago

KILLZONE SHADOW FALL is indeed the fps to get and play this year!
GG seems to have done a great job in ever sense and you are not been rip off with the dlc prices.. for $20 you get 6 more multiplayer maps or 8 and 8 4 players co op horde maps . Plus 6 free initial maps.

KILLZONE has the best gameplay, best multiplayer, custom game modes, best visuals, best balanced multiplayer design, it's just the best.

As a gamer you will lose a lot if you choose to hate on Killzone, if you love games give it a try and fall in love with it.

Pandamobile1012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

KZ2 and 3 both left bad tastes in my mouth. Your argument about "best gameplay" is your own opinion. To me, it isn't much more than a pretty-looking COD game with clunkier weapon handling.

ssj271012d ago (Edited 1012d ago )

Obviously is my opinion, same as Killzone 2 and 3 leaving a bad taste on you is your opinion.

You are a pc fanboy who always bash killzone 2,3 even before kz2 launched .. I find hard to believe your words, you are a Killzone hater.

You have no honest word towards Killzone so you should stop talking about it since you can't have a honest felling, control your ego.

COD is just another COD the same game after COD4..
BF4 is just BF3 but now most gamers can experience the way it was meant to be experience with 64 player's online.

They are two fun games, cod has many fans because is easy to play and kids love it and BF bring bigger scale battles with vehicles and obviously many love that! It's indeed a battlefield

KILLZONE is bringing old features back like custom rooms, bots to play as you like and perfecting what's right, the gumplay, balanced maps and balanced design overal. Amazing visuals and fun gameplay! No auto aim, it makes Killzone a very skill
based game and is bad ass.

Jovanian 1013d ago

Nice low resolution. Stupid articles that claim screenshots are in 'stunning detail' and the resolution is sub 1080p...
