Developer DICE has revealed that they plan to "balance out" the infrared scope in Battlefield 3, a scope which some players believe is overpowered.

just wanna point out there wont be a multitude of cod fans on this post laughing or shouting with glee. but its good to see any developer tweaking a game to make it better
This is Gay....reason why..because if youre whining about it..youre getting owned by it. Its simple..equip the scope on YOUR gun and fight back...this is so Dice...anytime a few people cry like girls they change something. They never listen to people who actually play the game. Infrared works great in certain situations..now of course....it gets all screwed up!
That's my view too- it's not a cheat, it's available to everyone on every gun- INCLUDE SNIPERS- so I don't see why people whine about this. Why not worry about crap like flying snipers on mav's?
There is also a skin you unlock at lvl 45 that conceals your body heat. the only thing that shows up on infrared is the players face. here http://i.imgur.com/YBtaZh.j...
Wow really? Ive complained about weapons i used in BC2 religiously because they were OP'ed. Thats a really dumb comment. Sometimes developers make mistakes when they make MP games.
I played over 1000 hours of bc2...the choppers were op'ed..they didnt change it..they got complaints about that like a mofo..they did nothing..now because a couple titty babies cry about the night vision they are going to hit it....what a shame to mess up a good game..its available to all and everyone can use it...its simple...I still stand firm..if they are complaining about it..its because they are getting owned by it and cant or dont know how to combat against it.
I better start using it so I can see what a the fuss is about. I don't get killed all the time by it so it must be some bad players crying.
So far as I remember I have only seen 3 other people besides me use it. Taking into account that I have played a total of 65 hours.
I only use it when people are camping up in the fuel tankers on operation firestorm. People can camp up there all day and its hard to get them out of the fuel depot flag.
I have used it some and understand the complaints. The main complaint is that it gives you a HUGE advantage in terms of spotting players that you normally would NOT see. I know its a video game...but im curious as to IF this scope is THIS good in real life. With the scope equiped I can scan the battlefield and see and spot enemies I would NEVER EVER see with a regular scope. I have used the scope myself and I do ..do better with it equipped. But I try and NOT use it to much as I honestly feel like im cheating if that makes any sense lol. And when I get killed when someone is using it...I dont get mad at all. BUT can see some players being upset as the scope gives the player using it a huge advantage to the ones NOT using it. Now the one weapon that I use that I love is the CLAYMORE!!! I have like 90 kills with it. And have only been killed by it 2-3 times. I dont know why players are not using it...but its so easy to get kills with it. I even got a double kill with a claymore! Im happy no one is using them IMO.
I think it is pretty OP, when I play TDM using this scope I can finish the game at 30-4, but if I play with a regular scope its more like 15-10
I have noticed my K/D is much better when I use the INRV...thats why I try not to use it. Knowing its going to get nerfed. I actually feel like im cheating using it!
Personally I do better without the IRNV. The only use I have for IRNV is spotting across long distances for the snipers on my team.
exactly, since its a scope its got a bit of that wobble to it which I dont like on my short range weapons. Its more inaccurate
I seldom get long range hits when using the IRNV. It's too wobbly at range and it's hard to see where your shots land (lost of depth perception)or how the target if positioned since everything's a shade of green. At long range I simply use the scope as a spotting and suppression device. I held off numerous enemies attacking my position once with IRNV. I had few kills but a lot of suppression and spot assists. Maybe adding some flashbangs or flares (grenade/M203/mortar forms) could help and balance the IRNV. Or some candles.
How the hell is a scope overpowered? For anyone complaining get over yourself and just kill the fucker killing you. That is a lot better then making a fuss over it at least you feel good about yourself afterward that you had some revenge.
Truthfully, its somewhat overpowered and cheap. I use it for every weapon because it guarantees easy kills. The players show up white hot on the scope making it no problem to stay back, scan the field of view and shoot everything that glows white. Switch over to any other scope or iron sights and you probably wouldn't have even noticed an enemy was there. Patch or not ill probably still use the scope. Yet, i can definitely see why they would want to nerf it, makes the game more balanced in the end. Its not like they are removing it from the game, just tweaking it.
You just stated exactly WHY its OP!!! And I dot feel its whining if your constantly getting killed by players using it. Its like looking through a magic scope....that you basically can just lay back and spot players and kill players ...like you said...you normally WOULDNT have seen with a regular scope. I say tone it down to what the real scope does in real life.. because I cant imagine this scope performing as it does in game the same in real life. I can say for a fact that I have 100 kills with this scope that I wouldnt have had with a regular scope. I have seen enemies that I would have NEVER known where there.
Lol so I guess tha military going too tone down their IRNV also. If any1 can use it then why is people complaining about it.And I dont know if BF3 have smoke grenades or not but that works against IRNV I think....
flashbangs are the nv nightmare. if they didnt have all these maps where you cant see out of a door because of cheap sunlight or even cheaper flashlights I could see where the complaints could come but this is just ridiculous. get your marshmallows and tents ready because this game is going to turn into a campers paradise if they keep doing stupid changes like this.
I've wondered why there aren't any smoke and flash grenades in BF3. Would've made Metro a little bit less monotonous with these siege breaking devices. I know mortars has smoke but using mortar indoors? Or put smoke canisters on EOD bots.
fuck u dice and i thought this is a military shooter, how about nerfing guns and vehicles? they kill too.
well if they are listening to people bitch about things that cause them problems I will throw mine out then. Get rid of prone, the snipers use it to kill me by laying down.....I cant see them as easily, so it is not fair for me or anyone else who gets killed by a sniper rifle. "smh" Dice if you wanna patch something, how about getting rid of the trees that bend with turret/tank/helicopter fire and lets see some of the destruction we were told about. Its hit and miss as far as destruction goes, I would love to be able to lay waste to some of the cheap ass houses that people will camp in because they are somehow indestructible.
Shouldn't daylight effect the scope? It's weird seeing people use this scope on maps like Operation Firestorm.
I use it on my every weapon and it is OVERPOWERED. End of story. They should balance it somehow so that I can use other attachments for a change.
Boy, there making this game into a COD.. Pretty soon they will add perks and kill streaks, lol..
All they need to do is make it so it doesn't highlight other players. Should only be used to increase vision in dark areas. Simple fix.
I myself have used the INRV scope and IMO it needs to be toned down. Especially in maps that are daytime maps. I feel like im cheating by using it. I know its in the game and everyonecan use it. BUT....I can see a point where ALL players are using it. And at that point we all will just be shooting at yellow blobs lol. I say tone it down some. IMO
