  • what the frick happened?

    I go away and a patch releases.....I come back and all the guns are hosed. Can't hit anything in semi auto or 3 shot burst even. Why is Dice fixing what isn't broken all the time? I seriously am at the bottom 2-3 players every round. Before the patch I would be top 5 ????? what am I missing here? I have tried almost every gun I have unlocked and they all seem WAAAAAAAAY underpowered? I'll take any advice on what I am doing wrong because something has changed drastically.

    Well they did introduce a new network interpolation slider under options/gameplay. Maybe it screwed up your rates somehow. Try adjusting that slider up and down until you feel you've hit the sweet spot for your connection.

    Otherwise, bad rounds happen to everyone man.

        None of us really know. DICE didn't really provide any guidance for it, so just mess with it until it feels like everything is working best.

        This explains it best I think. Found it on Reddit.

The game then uses this information to update where players are, what they just shot, etc. If they present that to you right away, everything will pause and you'd be waiting for the next update. The game can either guess what is going to happen until you get the next update and correct it when they do (extrapolation), or it can wait until they get two updates, figure out what happened between them, and show you on a constant delay (interpolation). The slider probably determines the length of the delay. If the delay is shorter, you get a more up to date representation, but if it doesn't get the new data in time, you'll get warping and all that jazz.

        If this is an incorrect or flawed explanation, hopefully someone will correct me. Hopefully this helps.

          I doubt its the interpolation slider, if you haven't touched it then it shouldn't be making a significant difference compared to before.

          All the guns feel different now due to the changes made to bullet spread, the reason they feel underpowered isn't because of a reduction in damage but a reduction in the number of bullets that regularly hit a target, even at close range. In previous BF3 and BC2 you were generally rewarded for longer bursts and even going full auto, this simply is not the case anymore.

          New Rules to live (or die) by:

          Unless you are both coming around a corner and face to face don't go full auto (100% clip, not bursting) for everything else:

          CQC: Long burst (25-30% of clip per burst)
          Medium range: Short bursts (10%-20% of your clip per burst)
          Long range: Single shot or extremely short burst (1-3 rounds)

            My advice, stop worrying about where you are on the leaderboard. Focus on helping the team win (im sure you already do that).

              I haven't been able to play since the update but from reading forums I feel like it's a good change from the full auto they had earlier.

              At medium to long range control bursts should be the only option.

              Going to play tomorrow and hopefully i like the way the guns handle.

                Re: what the frick happened?

                I still play the same way after the patch. I still fire on full auto just like before. still hit my targets most of the times. Maybe its because I got the G3 for the assault class and it just performs differently from the other weapons, i dont know.

                I stopped using the IRNV scope. strangely enough, I have gone up in the board on average. I tend to get in the top 5 maybe like 75% of the time I play when before with the scope it was maybe 50% or so .

                  But that's just it....i always burst fire. Never go full auto unless i get surprised around a corner. Let me ask this....does the gun have to be set to burst or single shot for greater accuracy? Or can i do it on full auto by tapping my mouse like i used to do???

                        What happened? They nerfed your guns only, Ven. And all your actions are now worth 50% compared to others, causing your scoreboard drop ;)

                            I personally haven't had any issues after the patch, nor have I experienced any changes outside those that were mentioned within the patch notes. I shoot, people die... :)

                              I believe what you are seeing in that video is actually how the majority of the BF games worked. That sprinting with a large spread is extremely similar as diving to prone and firing. It's actually because he is holding down a certain key.

                              If anyone remember in BF2.... and Bf2142 if you dive into the prone and never release Z (prone button) your reticule will stay open at it's largest even when not firing. When sprinting in both of those games and you stop with out releasing the Shift (Sprint key) the reticule stays open at it's largest.

                              Therefore when you hold those keys and fire you are firing pretty much like a wild man.

                              A lot of players have this habit of holding the shift key and/or prone key down even when they are just firing. Think about it when your playing and you'll notice when you sprinted and saw a target and snapped to fire, I bet money that your little pinky still has that shift key depressed.
