BF3 Snipers


[link to this post]
 
Though I appreciate the patience of these guys, there is very little skill involved. Just patience. Watch the video down the page!

Hit detection on some of those shots was miles off

I couldn't even see half those enemies, that's my problem. Keep moving the screen closer and put the brightness up. Was playing the other day and hadn't realised how dark it was.

To be fair, that guy knew what he was doing. The running shots looked a bit silly though as they did indeed look miles off. What gets me though, are the ones (like at 42 secs in) where the guy is hiding behind a crate and yet still manages to get killed.

Last night when I was playing for a bit and when my game wasn't busy crashing (thank you AM-feckin'-D), I experimented and shot at players who were well hidden and still killed them so the hit registration boxes must be significantly larger. So many times I've been killed when I know I was tucked out of harm's way.

Watching that the game looked rubbish as far as I'm concerned,looked more like the keystone cops.wink

How can that be actually exciting playing a war game.

It's kind of the point with BF games, although I've not played it yet, I'd take realism over gamey any day smile

Bouncing around a screen putting a magazine into an enemy isn't my personal idea of fun, IMHO BF3 doesn't go far enough with ballistics realism (getting hit on body armour IRL generally doesn't result in you turning around and attacking the enemy wink), but I suppose they've got to appeal to more than me I guess laugh

One game I play, Battleground Europe, you can go an hour and maybe get a couple of kills. The thrill is in out thinking and out flanking the enemy for me.

Horses for courses I suppose smile

'Out thinking' doesn't seem like one of T2D's strong points.* wink





*To be fair, it isn't one of mine either these days. Not that I've ever excelled in the whole strategic planning dept.
