What A Battlefield 3 Knife Take Down Looks Like From Third Person And Quickscoping

We all know that the Battlefield 3 knife takedown looks amazing, however there has only been footage of someone doing it from the first person, now you get to see what it looks like from the third person.

Video Also Includes Quickscoping

It's nice that they included a full blown takedown, rather than just a launch.

i wish BF3 had 3rd person mode

jeseth2709d ago

Wow, the AK47 in this game has no recoil!

Battlefield is sooooo realistic!

MARKUS_MAX1MUS2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

BF3 3rd person mode,

El campers paradise, Complimentary marshmallows when you join!

lol not a bad idea, have it in a seperate playlist like MW2 and it would be grand, (only redeeming feature of that game because 3rd person mode had no aim assist)

lelo2play2709d ago

The Moders in the PC community will probably release a mod to play BF3 in the 3rd person :)

jeseth2709d ago

c'mon guys . . . how can you watch that clip and not notice the lack of recoil. Don't make excuses for it, call a spade a spade.

I don't get it, some games get brutally criticized while others get a pass and people justify obvious flaws.

DirtyLary2709d ago

sad troll when all you got is "not realistic" in a video game.

AKS2709d ago


If you want a sim FPS, try ARMA. It's not supposed to be completely realistic. If it was, most of the time you'd be killed with a single bullet, or at minimum drop to the ground writhing in agony. I've seen a single round from an AK-47 chop a concrete block in half. If you get hit by any of those weapons, you're done. No revives or medikits in real life are going to fix you so you can get back up and sprint across a field while carrying a light machine gun. The first team to get to an armored vehicle would basically have won the round. Does that sound fun for an online multiplayer game? That's why they try to balance it rather than go for pure realism.

GrieverSoul2709d ago

The most annoying feature Modern Warfare has is in BF3??!! -_-

CaptCalvin2709d ago


Because if you look carefully he deployed a bipod. I know they don't have these things in CoD but I mean comeon!!

MidnytRain2709d ago

^^Not really a flaw if the game's not out yet. They can fix it.

jeseth2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

@ AKS.

I know man but all people have been talking about lately is how much more realistic and detailed BF is than other shooters. To have noticably unrealistic recoil is what it is. Tripod or not we are talking about a fully automatic rifle shooting a 7.62 round...

Why can't people admit what the video clearly shows. A lack of "attention to detail". I know its a video game but if EA is going to hyp this game up the way they are then they and others should be prepared to be criticized heavily.

@ Koblec : I feel like I'm being misunderstood here....I don't really care about teh recoil in a VIDEO GAME. My original comment was sarcasm that some people have a problem with when it is about something they love so dearly. But what I'm getting at is other games get knocked and made fun of for beiing "arcady and fun" (Halo/COD) while Battlefied is immediately more "mature, realistic, and intelligent" than other FPS games. I could care less how accurate BF3 is to real life, or COD:MW3, OR Socom 4, or MOH, etc. The point is that people cry one thing about BF and degrade other games while the game they build up has the same problems and could be picked apart for the very same drawbacks.

Its the hypocracy really that amuses me in the FPS Fanboy flame wars as of late. The authors and fans of N4g want BF3 to beat MW3 so bad but the truth is that it won't even sell half of what MW3 will sell. I'm no COD fanboy, I'm a gaming realist and old enough to see the landscape and scope of the power COD has right now. Black Ops sold 25 million units! Thats F;ing insane! MW3 will sell that much on reputation alone. People need to be consistant in their criticism of game is all I'm saying.

Koblec2709d ago

@ jeseth

Realism =/= fun

You have to draw the line somewhere.

radphil2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )


Mountain out of an ant hill...good god man. There's a reason betas and testing happens.

The lack of recoil can be fixed easily.

evrfighter2709d ago

If you're a pc gamer then this is fundamental pc sniping. console scrubs just gave it a fancy name

morganfell2709d ago

Not really worried about the lack of recoil. I have ACE 2 on Combined Arms for days when I want realism.

The bigger issue wasn't even the game. It was these guys jerking off and laughing while they were losing objectives. Yes it's a beta but these people will play exactly the same way when the retail version launches.

You can't always play in a clan or with people you know so before they concern themselves with recoil I would rather the devs find better ways to promote teamwork (without forcing it - SOCOM 2 was masterful in this regard). And develop a manner which can provide better insight/feedback for players to be able to determine who is actually assisting the team and who is simply standing at the feedbag.

peowpeow2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

There's heaps of recoil in the AK47..look at 1:08? The no recoil part is when he deploys the bipod. There needed to be a distinguishable difference in recoil with the bipod deployed

Pixel_Pusher2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

Even a little thing like knifing looks fucking amazing in BF3.


Oh no did he not live up to your expectations? Darn...

Have you not found out yet what a real man behaves like? Very comical.

lil Titan2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

does BF3 have the bunny hop?

@jeseth its alot more realistic than COD thats for sure. you must have missed the bi pod that he put down dont worry its easy to miss

RedDead2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

Jeseth, no one ses it's realistic. Sure more than Cod but it's still not realistic. As the rest said, want realistic, play a sim. Want the best shooter(imo). BF all the way.

Zealous, 2 from front, 1 from back. Not like Cod or Killzone 3

KendrickGLS2709d ago

Yeah I agree, and I think it would be awsome if a lot of games had the option to switch between 1st person, and 3rd view in the options menu in the game. If I could have Halo in 3rd person, and Gears of War 1st person, then I would like those games a lot more. The only games I know of that has that option is Fallout 3/New Vegas The Suffering(The best horror game ever!). Rainbow Six Vegas was in 1st person but it still had a cover system. It'd be so awsome if Battlefield had that, but it's still the best war game!

Ser2709d ago


Do you expect EVERYTHING to be perfect in this game? I don't.

But thankfully, DICE can alter weapons and balance the game even after release. Just calm down.

@ the 0:36 second mark he screamed like a straight Be-atch!! instantly loosing all his man points and the respect of gamers every where!!

"then had the nerve to curse and act tough after a kill" Very Comical!!

latinalover2709d ago

i seen lately people just being stupid in battlefield 3

zeal0us2709d ago

is it a one hit kill even from the front or just the back?

B/c if its anything the bs in cod i'm going to be piss....but i will still buy the game.

ATi_Elite2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

Most likely that was a head shot plus he was already severely wounded from the earlier gun fights.

BALLARD322709d ago

Hopefully the quickscoping doesn't make it into the final game. Dice knows better.

ATi_Elite2709d ago

whats the benefit or evil of quick scoping?

BALLARD322709d ago

I could rant about it all day but simply put, quickscoping is an exploit of the games aim assist(at least in cod). In my opinion, its a cheap way to play.

PeZuS2709d ago

There is no aim assist in BF3 on PC (and most PC shooters anyway)

Getowned2709d ago

quickscoping is the most annoying thing along with noobtubers,and better be taken out of BF3 or i will only buy PC version.I was going to get a PC and PS3 copy but not if there going to turn console version into MW2 but at least sniper don't get 1 shot kills unless with a head shot still it could be an annoyance.

-Alpha2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

it's not a problem. I can do the same exact thing in BC2, I've quick and no scoped many times before. The mentality just isn't the same in Battlefield as it is in COD.

omi25p2709d ago

Agreed. Also the guy he is shooting is stood up and is completely still, That would be an easy no scope to any trained sniper.

arjman2709d ago

Quickscoping is pointless, majority of the time they only get one kill because they're shot down by other enemies

Cpt_kitten2709d ago

the slowed down part of the take down made the guy luaghing seem insane.......awesome

Bay2709d ago

Was that an AK with a tripod? Huh...

Cpt_kitten2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

Ak's rock most customizable weapons and more accurate than an M16

wish devs would get that through there heads and not make it a weak weapon

i have shot one before, im not one of these cod fanboys who thinks they know guns because they play call of duty.....who bases there guns off pellet guns unlike dice who actually has a firing range with loads of guns

jeseth2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )

AK47. Customizable and Reliable, yes.

More accurate than an M16, no. The M16 (A2/A4) is one of the most accurate assault rifles there are.

An AR15 is more accurate than an AK47. Shoot the guns before making comments.

Kitten : I peer of mine is ex-mairne corps. Has a borderline criminal amount of rifles and handguns. You take Dice's "actual firing range" excuse while we will continue to shoot targets, cans, bottles, tubs, 55 gallon drums, and the occasional helpless forest animal.

Funny how you mention COD when no one mentioned COD? Insecure much? Or are you just a BF Fanboy?

Ace_Pheonix2709d ago

I wouldn't say it's more accurate by any means. It is a very reliable weapon, and cheap to manufacture. 7.62x39 however is a large and slow round. It has great takedown power, but limited range and penetration. 5.56 is small and fast. Very accurate over a large distance, but once you get over 500 yards it drops quickly. But it lacks the stopping power. That's why I prefer the good 'ol .308. Give me an M-14 any day =D

vortis2709d ago

Jeseth is saying some BS right there.

Customizing an AK47/74 makes all the difference in the world, especially if it has properly adjusted shoulder stocks to LESSEN recoil. Add on a bipod and the thing is rock solid.

Accuracy is based on the shooter, precision varies to the loadout, mods and accessories.

JeffGUNZ2709d ago

@ Vortis.

No, Jeseth is correct. An AK47 is such a great weapon because of it's "to hell and back" reliability. There has been people who found AK-47's from YEARS and YEARS ago buried on battlefield, they loaded it and fired it. Gun worked to perfection. AK's are very popular in many countries because of their reliability. They can go through about anything and still perform.

The M-16 has little to NO recoil, therefore the gun has the potential to be more accurate. I say potential, because complete accuracy is dependent on the shooter. I have shot both weapons at least 500-1000 times throughout my law enforcement career so far, and am a certified tactical firearms instructor and I can tell you the M-16 is more accurate and easier to shoot than an AK. I would MUCH rather take and M-16 or even the civilian based AR-15 to battle then an AK.

Also, don't bring up AK74, that guns recoil is just absurd.

Alot of places around the country have ranges that let you rent out some of these guns. Definitely experience it for yourself and you'll tell instantly.

That is not saying that an AK-47 in the right hand is DEADLY, but overall, the M-16 is a more user-friendly gun which can pinpoint a threat with ease.

Lastly, why the hell would anyone ever put a bipod on a AK? Don't give me "Accuracy" nonsense. If you need a bipod for an assault rifle so you can hit your threat, you shouldn't be carrying he rifle. Also, in my experience, I have never seen ANYONE put a bipod on an AK.

*BI*-pods, like in this vid, are pretty standard.

OdinX2709d ago

@Ace_Pheonix I thought the M14 shoots 7.62mm rounds?

Elwenil2709d ago (Edited 2709d ago )


A .308 IS 7.62mm in the most general sense. In terms of ammunition, .308 is the same as a 7.62mm though .308 is the civilian round and 7.62 is the NATO designation for the military round.
