  • What ever happened to q-spotting

    Q-spot more please!

    Your first bullet should be a Q-spot!

      I still Q spot as a reflex from 2142, but 75% of the time it doesn't work.

        I Q spot before I shoot every time except when the stupid game thinks I'm spamming.

          I have the same problem. I run into both over spotting and a restriction of range. I can see the target but cannot spot it.

            The range on spotting is extremely long (you can see this on Atacama Desert--spotting range goes an insanely long distance but is almost entirely useless for infantry after about 150-200m). However, the "box" for spotting is conical in shape, so the further out you are, the less precise it lets you be. It has a tendency to make that errant leaf blocking 1/500th of your vision "box" into an impenetrable shield for whatever you're trying to spot.

            Different objects also seem to have different scan sizes for spotting, too, although I haven't taken the time to confirm it. I suggest this because spotting the UAV, even if it's hiding in trees, is exceptionally easy.

              Yeah, as annoying as the "hit Q and watch everyone in your field of view light up" was in Bf2/2142, it is much much more annoying to hit Q as you track an enemy running across a road without the orange dot coming up. I still do it, but it rarely works.

                I agree.

                I'm worried people will get out the habit of spotting if it remains problematic.
                We are not apologetic for who we are. What we can do, however, is educate people so that they fear us for the right reasons.

                    That's why I like to fly the UAVs. You don't seem to have the spam restrictions on the UAV like you do on the ground. You can also light up multiple contacts at once. On a tight map like Valparaiso for example you can easily have the whole place lit up like a Christmas tree with just a few taps of the Q key - another reason to load out optics on the UAV.

                      I always q-spot - I really miss the really fully featured q-spot tool from BF2 and 2142 - but more often than not - it doesn't work. Disappointing, but true. Even in situations where you don't want to fire - for fear of being found, etc. - hitting the Q is really easy.

                        I am horrible at shooting, much more helpful with a health kit, paddles and the q key. I got my first double spot from the ground the other day unless it was coincidental and someone else spotted the target right next to him at the same exact time. I think this is one of the easiest ways to help your team keep keep up their situational awareness.

                          I know there is a way to key bind LMB with keyboard Q so you can spot automatically with your first bullet, trying to figure this out.

                            I remember trying this when I first started playing. I think all you have to do is go into your control settings and set Q spot to the left mouse button so that it's bound to both fire and q-spot. Unfortunately the problem with this is that after you start firing on the first target which will usually be more than a few shots, the game will think you're spamming Q-spot and will not allow you to spot anyone else for a short period.
