Battlefield 3 Prone Deviation/ Increased Accuracy?

Gameplay tweaks from the 1.5 Patch for Battlefield 2 did the following

Added Battlefield 2142 style prone deviation (going prone will now cause reduced accuracy for a brief period) - " Strategyinformer "
Increased the time to go prone after jumping from 0.3 seconds to 0.7 seconds - " EA "

The added prone deviation dramatically changed the infantry gameplay in Battlefield 2. It was a huge aspect of the game...

I love the battlefield series! the only thing that bothers me is the damn snipers!

I do realize that recon soldier is part of modern warfare, but how about a fixed class limit like in day of defeat?

There is nothing more annoying then getting a good gaming ruined by a whole oppositive team, who thinks that its all about sniping (conquest?!)

Luckily alot of servers has this kind of "fixed" amounts.

Well I heard they were making the bullet drop system a lot more complex (wind maybe?) so I bet that will turn off a lot of players.

Bullet drop, will most likely be more for snipers and rockets and tanks. I really don't think it will be a factor in close combat infantry shooting.

Shackdaddy8363021d ago

Ya. That's what I was talking about....

callmedom943021d ago

oh okay, I didn't really catch that in your words.

Well I don't think it will be a turn off for a lot of players. BF2 had bullet drop. I remember as a sniper, we had to shoot semi above the target, depending on how far they were. I remember bullet drop in the ranks and rockets never went completely straight. I think it will flow smoothly for BF2 veterans.

Being good at Battlefield is also being good at countering attacks. I can outsnipe most snipers with my 870 shotgun....I worry very little about snipers. BF3 will bring something that will make me worry a little more..the rebirth of prone. Now its going to be a most likely higher number of snipers...but if they want to sit back and shoot from 6 miles away...fine with me..Ill go take bases...Most snipers do one of two things...vehicle warfare..or hide in a bush. They have no clue about foot patrol. I cant wait for BF3!!

I think personally the size and scale of BF3 will be a balance to prone in itself, at least on the PC version anyway.

Think of it this way, instead of having 16 players per team observing the map and taking note of enemy positions we'll now have double that amount. This means more chance of snipers getting spotted and more chance of them getting taken out.

Same with map size, the larger map sizes will provide more opportunities to flank enemy snipers and attack them from behind than a map such as 'Port Valdez' - shudders.

Snipers aren't a hinderance to my playability , they are severely limited in their Medium-Close combat effectiveness. All one needs to do is pay attention and snipers arent too high of a threat.
