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.

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

GAMExxOVER1768d ago

1200 legit beats a 3900 staged anyday.

ChrisW1768d ago (Edited 1768d 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.

Shame it was set up though. Takes away the magic of the shot.

Oldman1001768d ago

Lol here's another at 3250 meters

Yeah haha still awesome to watch though


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.

wicko1768d ago

Not really - also the fact that he is so far away from objectives means he is also not helping with objectives.

radphil1768d ago (Edited 1768d 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.

FlashBack1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

exactly, there are Choppers and Jets, you know?


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.

PhantomT14121768d ago

And you've got to be skilled to make some kills from there, unlike the so called "quickscoping" in MW3.

DarthJay1768d 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.

TooTall191767d 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.

ThatIrishGamer1767d 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.

frostypants1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

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.

Disccordia1767d ago

I think that was his point lol

Kahvipannu1767d ago

Hmmm.. You haven't played the game right? Since your comment makes no sense -_-

cyguration1767d 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.
