  • Bullet drop in BF3 - Does wind count?

    So, I've been playing BF3, and really enjoying the sniping. But I'm running into a bit of an issue with a friend of mine.

    Can someone verify if this statement is true, or does anyone have personal experience that can verify this.

    In BF3, both gravity AND wind direction is taken into account when shooting bullets across the map

    I've tried a few times to see if I can find an empty server to test this, but to no avail.

    Thanks,

    You don't need an empty server, just grab your buddy, find a big map, move away from where most of the shooting happens, runways, long main drags of roads headed out of the map, etc, and start testing?

      I haven't noticed any effect of wind, gravity yes - more so with a suppressor.

        As stated above. Never noticed wind effect of any kind.

          No wind effect, even at 1000m shots.

            Never noticed any wind effects, neither on bullets or rockets.

              i dont think they would add wind effects, then they would have to add something to the game telling you which way the wind would be blowing. but they dont.

                Thanks guys. Gravity yes, wind, no.

                  My farthest head shot is 759.87 meters, but if you look on the battlelog the record is 3388.97 meters which is just insane.

                    Sorry to say that BF3 is just another arcade fps shooter, no wind affects bullet drop.
