I mean I could tell from the Beta that BFV was poo poo. I didn’t buy it and I’m glad I didn’t. But their track record is tremendously positive. Out of all the amazing games they’ve put out, only Hardline and BFV sucked. If the beta is good I’m definitely in.

The Krylov was the best, I swear that thing had magic bullets. I even have a soft spot for the EU starter gun despite the fact that it kicked like crazy.

80% of the player base used the Voss near the end but if you ever found a high BR player that used the starter guns or the Baur (the high damage kicks like a mule low magazine) gun they were forces to be reckoned with.

After mastering the LMG mechanics to the point where I could actually win most close-range fire-fights the Baur was easy to master and had a noticeably longer range than either the defaults or the Voss.

My roomie at the time watched me single-handedly defend a point from an entire 6-man squad using the Baur without reloading once. 2.5 kills with the Baur, then 1.5 kills with the under-barrel shotgun, one dude with the EU revolver, and finally KNIFE TO THE FACE for the last guy.

"What the gently caress did you just do!?"

Has any Battlefield title let alone honestly any FPS game balanced rocket launchers well? How did 2142 balance snipers and rocket launchers? I'm too old to remember :smith:
Team Fortress Classic/2 had rocket launchers and it was balanced. Same for UT2k4. They are really not that hard to balance.

Bad Company's 2 rocket launchers were also balanced. Virtually no lock-on except slow and easily dispensable flare-gun. RPG had an arc and fall-off that was harder to aim from any sort of appreciable distance and iirc weakest radial damage fall-off. Carl Gustav went in a straight line and had good splash but was the weakest by far in terms of armor damage. AT4 required skill to use and owned by doing most damag. They were also locked to the Engineer class, which, largely had the worst guns by far with capacity and range-limited SMGs. Especially compared to the laser-guns like AN-94 or M416 and such that Assault had that could mow down, or Medic's MG36 or MG3 being able to spray death for hours continuously, or Retcon running around with Whizzballs+red dot vss. In general the balance was really good because every class had some really strong elements and no one was stuck with lovely weapons (unlike say BF5 Medic pre-buffs).

BF5 was the most egregious example of really bad rocket launcher balancing because they gave the class with by far the best guns, also the best explosives--and a lot of them. Just absolutely stupid.

I'm anxious to see how AMD's FidelityFX performs. It's the competing tech with DLSS, and should be out some time this month. DLSS is magic and really the only way people can support a 4K display without shelling out tons of money (even in a typical year). Raytracing has grown by leaps and bounds since Battlefield V, too. Hopefully that pays off for 2042.

Given the previews we've seen of AMD's FSR the performance gain is substantial but so too is the image quality reduction

Worth it, to be honest. DLSS had some growing pains, too, because I don't think 4x (1080p to 4k) sampling was available until DLSS 2.0

If it's competitive you're running 1080p at 240hz. The CS:GO resolution that can't be output to YouTube or anywhere else yet.

BFV and Anthem was such a 1-2 poo poo sandwich punch from EA it was pretty amazing they managed to launch these turds so close to each other.. or more likely it is a bit linked - I think Anthem pulled Dice resources because they had to use frostbite engine, which probably meant less content for BFV. Just speculating though.

DLSS works great in Warzone for frames but nobody uses it because you're just handicapping yourself at range.

They had to host a tournament and pay streamers to say "IM PLAYING THIS TOURNEY WITH DLSS ON" in order to get anyone to use it
