The game looks awesome and it will definitely be 10 times better then Fail of duty no matter what your opinion.

I am however annoyed over one thing. If you, like me have been following the news for BF3 then you would have seen that they have made new ways to combat "Snipers" They are making scope sway and scope reflection. Firstly, the scope sway is fair and all but even when prone WITH a bi-pod which would make it minimal.

The other thing however, scope glare really annoys me, why? Because any half decent sniper knows that if it's sunny you need a sunshade/extension or killflash. If DICE is trying to accurately represent certain "Classes" they should do a little more research

Overall though the game looks nothing short of brilliant. Wish I had a 3K computer. Or 1.5K to make one. (To play it on rather than xbox) Lol.

Yeah, that pisses me off. The whole scope glare thing could be solved by doing the following:

-Have you start off as a "rookie" sniper. As you rank up, you can apply a kill flash of some sorts. This makes rookie snipers have to over come this and progress to the point where they become a serious sniper.

And are you saying there is still swaying in the scope when you are prone with bipod??

I love sniping in battlefield, but the scope glare thing gets my gears grinding.

One fella said that there is sway even in prone with the bi-pod. I don't know of the validity of it. I don't mind the sway as long as it is not overdone and you can control your breathing. (Not the over dramatized hoooooooough of CoD - that doesn't even work in real life, it's when you breath out ( I am sure you know this though) ;)))

I also hope they keep bullet drop.

I like these things because it get's rid of all the ones blatantly sticking out from the top of a hill " Ohh I'm a sniper I'm a sniper"

It takes some skill to play. Sorry for those who aren't the most able with a controller but still like to snipe

About the bullet drop, in BFBC2, the bullet drop is weird. At whatever range it starts to drop, it will only drop 1 mildot on the scope, even for those 500+ head shots (my best is 370 ). So i hope they make it more realistic.

Scope sway with bi-pod AND Prone? What do you need, a damn bench rest?!

I got a 2 milldot kill from the base on that large desert map to the broken in half boat in the middle during a conquest round. Maybe you were playing with magnum ammo?

???When have they ever had a prone any way, there is only crouch as far as I though. Even in MOH there was no prone online.

Also if the scope is set for 100 yards/ or meters then the drop is close to being real( minus the .50).

There are only so many things you can work on in a game, and when only less then 15% of all people who play use the sniper class. I mean there is only so much that can be done.

In my short time of playing BBC2, I played the sniper role the entire time. You get guys complaining yelling about how these "stupid snipers are woosies and sit back and take long shots and are too scared to fight...And how it is so cheap that they snipe you from so far away."

My response: "Stop walking in the open you moron." :)

Anyways, there better be a prone..I thought it was incredibly dumb that they rid of it in BBC2. Wasn't the reasoning because they did not want snipers to have too much of an advantage? ???

There is prone and there is going to be bullet drop for all classes, I play Bad company 2 A lot. I am like level 37. I got a 2 and 1/2 mil-dot headshot. It was on the map with the wind turbines. Also t's funny how the snipers always go for the most obvious spots. Also in a lot of games I see whole teams of nothing but snipers and maybe a medic. I think it's ridiculous. Also the sway with a Bi-pod is only what one fella said.

There's no prone in BFBC2 due to the designers not wanting there to be increased camping. We might see a killflash, but maybe thats only if were zoomed in as we should be using our 'noculars, which we should be able to spot with. Quite frankly, I'm looking forward to a little sway. It'll keep the masses away, and it'll be a bit of a challenge. Just out of curiosity, are you guys that use bi-pods really that steady because I've never been completely steady without a mono-pod.

A bipod should remove all sway. I am pretty dang steady in an airsoft game, so I would expect nothing less from a video game.
Yeah I can keep on a still target for ages with mah bi-pod.

There is prone as I said, I follow the news and they said there is prone it is because the Bad company series is separate from battlefield. They are two separate series.

Quick question...

Are you all playing Battlefield 2 or Battlefield Bad Company 2? I started playing Bad Company 2, but by the time I left the island in the 1st campaign mission, I'd had enough of the controls. I hear nothing but good things about it, and it seems far better than MWF2, but the controls were just too unstable for me.

Dice will not allow prone online, what you watched was probably the campaign.
Oh my god for the third time they CONFIRMED that PRONE IS ONLINE!!! I was just complaining of the possible sway even with a bi-podand the scope glare. They said that the scope glare is going to be how they combat snipers so I doubt there will be a sunshade option on one of the three attachments. Also the scope only shines if youstay too long. I hope there is maps where you get to play at night with NVG's and tracers. That would be simply awesome. And maybe different times of day too.

Edit: Also I check the google news feed everyday so I know everything about battlefield 3 that has been released, the 14 minute campaign trailer, the tank trailer and the operation metro trailer, oh and all the interviews and the demo at E3. I am pretty excited about this game.

Also to add to that if you look at rhe Frostbite 2 server video features you can see that there is standing, crouching, and prone, and they approved in the video that it was in-game footage. I will post the link when I get home, I'm on my phone right now.

Anyways, the map with the half boat is Atacama Desert and the one with the wind turbines is Heavy Metal :) I am a Battlefield freak and I am obsessed with the game. I am in this clan that is run by people in the military, it is really cool a d we do scenarios of actual operations that they were in, overseas in Iraq.
