DICE has revealed some new information regarding sniper rifles and how they will be tweaked, weapon damage, and HD textures!
I never liked the mini map in the beta, that is just me though.
I thought it was good, but I'm glad they are fine tuning it even more. 12 days left!
Yeah and 8 days left untill batman :D this month is awesome and next month will be even better!
Damn mp1st you guys are playing ball with the bigs. nothing but quality articles I've seen from them.
I didn't mind it so much. But I did find it some what of an issue sometimes when spawning into an area to determine which direction was north, south or basically where was the enemy coming from on defense. Especially in the tunnels. I know they had little green and red boxes that showed spawn points but that didn't assist much in most areas.
"Many Battlefield fans have already shown concern towards DICE’s decision to make bolt-action rifles a one-shot kill only when striking to the head" I personally think the two body shot kill should be one shot one kill (or a centre torso mass being one shot one kill with shoulders being two shots for a kill). I guess is discourages campers but then large maps encourage camping snipers
Yeah that's what we're saying. Fans are concerned that its ONLY a one-hit kill when shooting to the head, otherwise it's two shots anywhere else. :) Edit: slightly re-worded it. Hopefully it makes more sense!
Yer I re-read it after submitting the comment and I got what was meant only then
The two short body hit kill for snipers is dumb. In BF2BC i will shoot with a 50cal and not kill the person only for him to escape before i reload. Powerfull snipers are supposed to b 1shot kill not 2-3 shot kill because they escape by the time u reload so whats the point of sniping????
I guess DICE is trying to teach us how to headshot.
"so whats the point of sniping????" ;)
I would like to see some area specific damage to bodies. If I get hit in the leg then it should slow me down.(until health kicks in of course) Shoot me in the arm and maybe my accuracy is lower? Hit me in the chest and it should slow me down and effect my accuracy. Hit me in the head... well that should be 1 hit shot 1 kill.
I liked the way the snipers were in the beta but if they gonna tune them i'm all for it.
Yeah, I say leave the Bolt-Actions alone, but do tweak the semi-autos a little.
The release is so close gah! Glad to see some more map tuning man I want batman so bad though, but I'm worried about not getting the dlc and LE of BF3
This holiday season is just too good to be true. Batman, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Uncharted 3, and the list goes on...
Why are you worried? Do you mean you can only get one or the other?
I think he means either BF3 and Batman or BF3 LE with future DLC.
Only one for now :( Uncharted 3 is next. Batman may have ti wait till next year which is terrible for me considering the opening lineup for 2012
They need to fix the UAV drone because its useless as it is right now you cant spot anything with that shit.
There was a UAV drone? Man, I missed everything in the Beta.
They need to give the Recon more points for using his equipment, I find.
Thank god they are doing these fix ups!!! go Dice
No one is ever going to be satisfied. For every tweak made, another group will be mad. You cannot satisfy everyone. And the only people getting the tweaks they want are the people getting the bullets in their tail they don't want. Nobody enjoying one single head shot with any sniper bolt action weapon is complaining about that ability.
snipers should be one shit on kill unless if its the legs or arms..
