"Before we begin today’s Battlefield 3 news round-up, I think it’s important to clarify a few things that many Battlefield fans have been wondering about." - MP1st
Recoil, one more step towards realisticly awesomeness!
lol some confusion, however everything is pretty much cleared up now :D cant wait for the beta
Yeah, DICE seems to be all over the place. As long as they make an AWESOME game!... which they will.
:( i dont like recoil on my weapons i wish everyone else got it except me lol
Yeah, let's start a petition for OutWar6010. ;)
lol that would be epic if you started a petition and they turned off recoil for me alone
If you don't like recoil on your weapons go play cod xDD. P.S. i know he's joking.
Specially, in Modern Warfare 2 the ACR is really noob friendly. I was happy to see more recoil in Black Ops.
Or you can learn how to burst fire instead of holding down the trigger.
Like a real man...
Like a G6
dont be a NOOB
Well it's good to see they are taking recoil seriously instead of the aiming circle concept (looks at Socom 4) but please keep smoke launchers as one hit kills in point-blank range.
I recently started using smoke launchers more in BFBC2, they're really great! I used to run the underbarrel shotgun, but I think the smoke launchers can be more useful.
Yeah, I learned quickly that underbarrel shotguns are pretty useless in most of BFBC2's open environments. They should work nicely in BF3's Metro map subway areas though ... hehe.
The flashlight under-barel attachment seems pretty interesting too. Obviously useless in the day light... which makes me think... they may very well have quite a few night maps. Or more, tight, indoor areas would work too.
lol i was wondering how i kept getting killed by smoke grenades.
I'm still not sure how firing in bursts and firing in full-auto yeilds the same recoil and spread? wouldn't you think that single shots and bursts would be more accurate? (as they were in BC2)
Read more carefully. He said if you tap fired at THE SAME SPEED as full auto the spread would be the same. It would be odd if it didn't work that way. Your advantage is that you don't have to shoot the bullets as fast and maintain better control
Man I'm really hoping they don't pull a Treyarch and nerf things that don't need nerfing because of scrubs QQ'ing.... Grenade launchers should be great, otherwise who is going to play assault
Defibs, my man. They're the new medics :)
"Grenade launchers should be great, otherwise who is going to play assault" People who want to use assault rifles and in the case of BF3, to serve as the medic as well. You're insinuating that the only reason people play the assault class is to noob tube everyone.
SMH Yes I know they merged medic into Assault, its multiple classes... but Assault is still ASSAULT too. Assault's job is to get in there and mess some sh** up. Launching grenades is not only a way to do that, but also provide pressure/aggression against people you can't actually see. People who call it "noobtube" are exactly the type of people DICE need to ignore. This is BATTLEFIELD. You do what it takes to win, not whine like a wuss to get whatever is bother you nerfed.
@likesound exactly you need to have balance in your team. In Battlefield, I use "noobtubes" to destroy buildings not to spawn trap the enemies.
I understand that sometimes it's necessary to use the launcher, especially to take out campers and enemies in bunches, that's it's intended purpose. Unfortunately, it can be easily exploited. My problem are those people that use rocket launchers and grenade launchers exclusively to get one hit kills on single infantry and never fire a single bullet. If you make them too strong, those players will come in droves and we will have another case of MW2.
What would you guys like as a veteran weapon or bonus??? I wouldn't mind the older style M14, like in Vietnam.
They better include the M14 for assault rifles. I didn't see it on the "official" weapons list so it better be an unlock. M14 ACOG is my weapon of choice. Also, love the M14 b/c it reminds me of its predecessor--M1 Garand.
Lol! I also checked the official weapons list for the M14 and I also love battle rifles like the M1 Garand. I do hope they incorporate the M14.
I liked how they gave fn2000 for vets,it's one of de best in bc1 but in bc2 they give you some old m1 from ww2 with same stats as m14,witch I dont like.I also hope the higher vet you're the better guns you get cuz in bc2 I was lvl 7.
I love the way they're handling the recoil
Anything to do with more recoil isnt good if Dice wants to attract Call of Duty players. COD players are use to little recoil with weapons and most dont want to learn how to use them properly. Im a fan of battlefield games and I think this is going to be a great game that im going to love. The sad truth is i dont think many COD fans will play this much after MW3 comes out. Only time will tell.
Recoil makes games so much better
i like recoil but heck i also like the fun factor hope they can balance it out well
Its gonna be a difficult choice... Heavy Barrel or Silencer? I guess it goes both ways with nearly everything. While playing the original bad company I directly hit two guys standing arm to arm with a rocket and either only one or none of them died... I got really pissed... but than again i do get kinda mad when assholes use them as anti personnel weapons frequently
lol funny moments with those... explosion wise, 4 of us in a sniper tower and a rocket zooms right by us and only kills the one guy, then we laugh about it... a few seconds later another rocket comes by and nearly misses me and hits the same guy haha, made it funnier because he almost rage quit (all in BFBC2)
