Amazing Battlefield 3 Moment: 1287.32 Metres Headshot

Sniping in Battlefield 3 takes a lot of skill, in other games where you shoot is mainly where the bullet goes however in Battlefield 3 there is bullet drop which makes it even harder to snipe, however it doesn't seem to have stopped YouTuber Danzster to upload a video with a 1287.32 Metre headshot. (Battlefield 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

How the hell can he see someone from THAT distance? I can't see anyone there! Getting a head shot like that with a bullet drop? Wow, that's just amazing.

I hate snipers though! I love to Knife them and rip their dog tags. I am more of an Assault/Engineer guy but if you have unlocked Mortar fire then snipers become pretty much sitting ducks. I do however believe that in addition to other things, DICE need to increase mortar strike damage. I have seen mortars dropping not 3 feet away from the target and it does nothing to them! No damage. Apparently, you have to get a headshot with mortar strikes as well.

@zeeshan If you look hard enough you can see the light reflecting off the scope of the guy he sniped.

wow most lucky shot ever shoot but also a beautiful shot
GAMExxOVER  +   979d ago
1200 legit beats a 3900 staged anyday.
ChrisW  +   979d ago
Yeah... staged.

I can get a friend to play as the enemy and have them sit on a distant building so I can do a record head shot and then boast about it, too... but then I'd be like those posting below.

You don't necessarily need to stage it though. If you have a MAV all you gotta do is get a good vantage point, hide there, scout the area with the MAV, look for people far away from higher altitudes and position your MAV in the ground somewhere for reference, than snipe away.

I get 700~1000 meter marksman headshots all the time in Caspian Border and Kharg Island doing this. If you know better vantage points, I belive you can get 2000+ meters the same way.

Also you can lift other sniper with your MAV so they can sniper from up above, where's no one looks at, it's easy to take long ranged headshots from there.

The MAV is quite useful indeed, my personal favorite is to have a squad mate (support) rigging the MAV with C4 and making it an aerial controlled bomb. Just give him a sign to detonate. It works the best on hardcore mode, you'll loose the MAV but you can get another one in ammo crates.

Sum's up everything that's wrong with BF3.

When he unscopes. . .he's in the arsehole of no where. . . untouchable. . .and no where near any objectives whatsoever.

Not really - also the fact that he is so far away from objectives means he is also not helping with objectives.
radphil  +   980d ago
"Sum's up everything that's wrong with BF3. "

You might as well say that physics is wrong.

And no he's not in a spot to be untouchable.

I play mostly as Recon but although BF3 can be a sniper's paradise with the big maps and good vantage points, I know better than to stay in a spot for too long.

Firstly because I almost only play Rush, so the battle is constantly moving somewhere else, making it useless to camp in a spot the whole game.

Secondly just sitting still killing everyone is a sure way to get attention, not just from aerial vehicles, but from mortars and MAVs that can kill you before you even realize what's going on.

Personally I like to keep close to my squad. Just give them a decent raspawn point, provide cover so they can reach the objective and protect the objective 'till we're ready to move to the next one... Also I get to make like 5 or 6 times the kills I would if just sitting far away (not to mention objective and other extra points).

I have had good experiences with squads that keep far from objectives too, making something like an anti-vehicle squad in Caspian Border, for this I play mostly with the SOFLAM (usually placed somewhere oposite to my position) and squad mates carry mortar and Javelin, I only go sniping if they get out of the vehicle and try to fix it. But it only works with teamwork, 90% of the time you tag stuff with the SOFLAM no one shoots at it... So other than this, I think snipers are more efficient in the 50~200 meters range.
PhantomT1412  +   979d ago
And you've got to be skilled to make some kills from there, unlike the so called "quickscoping" in MW3.
DarthJay  +   979d ago
Bingo. Another useless sniper not contributing to his team. There were like 400 tickets left that round and I'll bet he was lucky to go 2-5 because he spent half the round trying to get back to his super awesome camping/do nothing spot and accidentally had to kill someone once along the way.
TooTall19  +   979d ago
Do you guys even understand aaronon's point. The person is not helping get objectives at all. I don't care how far his headshot is. It's still one ticket, and he wastes so much time trying to pull off trick-shots.
ThatIrishGamer  +   979d ago
Thanks TooTall19.

That guy is not helping his team at all. . .he's sniping, miles away. . .getting one ticket per hour as his team get pounded due to him not being anywhere near any objectives.
frostypants  +   979d ago
@aaronon
You DO know landing such shots is nearly impossible, right? He might be almost impossible to find, but he's also hardly gonna kill anyone that way. He's more of a burden to his own team and he'll finish at the bottom of the scorecard.

cyguration  +   979d ago
The awesome part about BF is that as bishop-br posted below, you really draw a lot of attention to yourself camping in one spot for too long.

Usually, I would follow a sniper to a camping spot with my SAW and help lay down suppression fire over an objective spot while he picks off the guys being suppresed. The opposition usually just thinks it's one guy shooting wildly with an LMG from an impossible range.

Those who dared get close would get sprayed up before they had a chance to kill either of us.

But you saying that guy was untouchable is very incorrect. We were killed when an attack chopper swung by and sprayed up the crane real good and we didn't have enough time to get out.

sovietsoldier  +   980d ago
i make shots from those distances but never seem to get head shots.
xX-StolenSoul-Xx  +   979d ago
you really have to know your trajectory of the bullet since it dives. You can pretty much learn how to snipe the more you kill from a distance
sovietsoldier  +   979d ago
yes but i have a hard time seeing, im lucky just to make the shot in the first place.
xX-StolenSoul-Xx  +   979d ago
@Sovietsoldier, this is why i dont attempt shots from very far cause I usually miss.

BX81  +   980d ago

Take note cod quick scopers! This is skill!
frostypants  +   979d ago
How can anyone disagree? MW3 = laser speed bullets, no drop, and you don't even have to actually put a round on your target to get credited with a hit, AND on consoles there is the idiotic aim-assist. BF = no auto-aim, bullet gravity, and you have to be DEAD-ON accurate to get credited with a kill.

There's no comparison. Snipers don't bother me in BF3 unless they are on my team and failing to help the cause.

Never heard of tracer rounds then?
TheIneffableBob  +   979d ago
From my knowledge, tracer rounds are typically used when there is little light with suppression weapons such as machine guns to see where you are shooting. They're pretty much never used with snipers, though.
hesido  +   979d ago
It's an unrealistic marker assist so you can detect your shot, I'm perfectly fine with it. I even think there's some bullet "size" assist at greater distances, to make up for the lack of input precision required for very long distance kills, to get this kind of over the top shootings :)
1.2 km is a stretch, but it's not unrealistic. It's 4224 feet
People have made that shot out there in the real world.

Now these guys going on about 3.5 km on the other hand....
hesido  +   979d ago
I don't say such a shot could not be made, but you wouldn't see your bullet that big even if it is a tracer. The marker is unrealistically big so you can trace it even at long distances.
rezzah  +   979d ago
I rather see my bullets than to see random image of fake bullets flying when the actual "bullet" (invisible) is hitting my enemy.

Which is easily seen in COD.

Even KZ2 and 3 shows exact bullets fired.
Shackdaddy836  +   979d ago

That is not realistic .. What Dice need to do to make it better is have the bullet go straight like a laser beam and make contact in less than .1ms , before he has time to get his Bubble shield up.

*Sigh*
