  • Identifying Friend / Foe

    Man... I'm having the worst time trying to figure out who to shoot at! Everyone is just a fairly dark silhouette, and the floaty crap above peoples heads just makes it worse. Sometimes there's a blue triangle there and a name, sometimes there's not. Aside from constantly bouncing your eyes off the minimap, how does one distinguish friend/foe in this game? :(

    You have to constantly bounce your eyes back and forth from the minimap.

      Well that's hardly immersive.. and it doesn't work when there's "swarming" all around a flag.

        The team color palette is very muted, I find. I don't think it makes for very good gameplay, but I'm getting used to it slowly.
        I can ADS using more than a 2x without significant stutter! This was a good patch.

          I try to keep situational awareness about where my squad mates are, so when I see someone outta place, I think "hmmmmm [MENTION=7254]P8riot[/MENTION] can't run that fast to that spot...hes to old! ;)" Than I shoot 'em

              Odd? I'm not having any issue at all. The pop up over their head is enough for me..... It's the same as bf3

                Yeah if they have the Icons above their head they are on your side. I also found using one of the colorblind settings helps a bit.

                  The problem was half the time friendlies didn't have floaties over them and I tk'd. Maybe it was a bug? I hope so.

                    This is the biggest problem I face. Sometimes friendlies don't have that little marker. At that point I aim downsight and it *usually* will pop up at that point. Either that or just shoot it to be safe and be quick on the "Sorry" comm rose item lol (j/k)

                      Hmmm it's very odd that you guys aren't getting the floaties. They are instantaneous for me on my screen??? I wonder why that is

                        There is a delay between pop ups, what are your video settings both for your card and game play? There may be a setting that is tweaked. I literally ran around a corner amongst 5 enemy and friendlies...no friendly indicator. I killed 3 enemy and two friendlies (in hind sight that is a win :) ) But it is frustrating.

                          Not sure what my settings are. Games gorgeous and it ran good so I didn't touch anything lol.

                          Guess I will have to look

                            More fiber will help increase the floaties.
