  • snipers get a bipod in BF3

    http://bf3blog.com/

    Not sure how I feel about this....I already can't stand snipers that sit back and work on K/D. Now they have a bipod and prone....seems to just beg them to camp now.

    The ones you can't stand will be the same in BF3 as they are in BC2 or even BF2. They will always sit at the back and work on K/D with or without a bipod and prone. I don't see this making them any more or less likely to do as they have always done.

      Well, to be fair, if someone was set on sniping, there wasn't much we could to begin with do to change their minds. While this may sway those who snipe on occasion, working voip is likely to help us swing them into sticking with the squad.

            Hopefully that won't happen if going prone takes time and is not an instant ability.

              "camping" Is not a word I heard around TG very much until recently. I, for one, think it's absurd. If you have a qualm with a teammate for not playing the objective, go on ahead and say so, but don't call anyone a "camper."

              This is TG.

              OT:

              It probably has a noticeable increase in accuracy - which I'm all for. If DICE makes it worth the user's time to set it up, I'll be happy.

                Your under the impression that I wouldnt call someone out? I have on several ocassions and I will anytime I see it. Hell one time beat had to tell me that the admins would handle it because I repeatedly called some guy in my squad out.

                  Great, more 1337 snipers...

                  If those snipers actuallh do what a sniper is supposed to it would be cool. But the word "recon" is kind of gone from snipers' minds.

                    They were going to do just that already. Given that I've never complained about the enemy team hiding off in the distance sniping, only my own teammates, anything that makes this more effective actually makes me happy. If snipers can actually be effective, I might not get quite so pissed off when half my team does it. (I still will). BC2 showed pretty well that making CQC recon so much better than sniper recon and removing the ability to prone in no way will stop large segments of the team from sniping. Even if they removed the points bonus from marksman headshots, I don't think we'd see any reduction in sniping.

                    Non-teamwork oriented snipers will snipe, in every game, regardless of its effectiveness. This changes nothing, except maybe making me a little wary about enemy snipers and to stick closer to my medic and use comms more.
                    I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

                      Positive Outlook:

                      Perhaps this suggests that sniping without deploying one's bipod will be much harder than in previous games (you would have more deviation or weapon sway, for example). Thus this feature could actually reduce the effectiveness of snipers on the whole?

                            Don't worry they are going to balance the scope with rubber bullets. The sniper also will get a little tent to help hide him and take naps.

                              I also like the bipod idea. I think this could be done really well with the LMGs, only if there is a serious reduction in the kick and the cone of fire. If it is not much better than crouched and scoped and tapping for single fire, while I can still strafe and avoid fire, it will be something that I will avoid using, especially if it is a "perk" that may has better alternatives. I heard one of the players of the E3 demo say the guns had more kick, which leads me to think that all the weapons will have more kick than what we are used to.
                              Why else would they introduce a bipod? There has to be an advantage.

                              I wonder if it will be able to be deployed on deformable ground terrain, like my nade-made foxholes.
