    q spot

    When you Q spot someone, do they show up on the minimap? I know vehicles show up on our server when I spot them, but I cant recall if players do.

    If so, is Q spotting worth it? I do it out of habit from pub play where the red dots are like wallhacks.

    Yes they show.

    It is only worth it if people take advantage of it. I use my minimap and full map(this is bound to "M" by default and displays the whole map on conquest and current stage on rush) any time I am not engaged to determine where the enemy is by watching for spots and killed friendlies. This helps me decide where I am most needed on the battlefield. I am unsure how many others use the larger map, some are unaware that there is a larger map.

    I find it worthwhile in particular situations, mainly when enemies are trying to be sneaky.

    Also if you think an enemy is somewhere but you cant spot them, throw a grenade and if it flies near them they will automatically yell out.

    lol .... Mac, I've just started using that tatic myself to see if anyone was in area!

    Only problem with using the Q spot is that the annoucement to team mates can be heard by enemy also! I beleive this is true.

    Re: q spot

    Yes and no... I have only ever heard it if my squad mate spotted a person and I'm close by to him/her. Same thing for when a teammates announces "You got that %#@!" or etc of that sort of msg. I'm assuming they should be able to hear that... if not idk why they wouldn't.

    Since our server has the triangles off alot of people don't bother pressing Q to spot (judging from experience and from the video I have seen of server 1 that is posted on forums).

    Just because we don't have 3D spotting, doesn't mean its rarely used. Anytime I feel I'm safe, I always check the minimap, ESPECIALLY when capping a flag or trying to prevent a flag cap.
