5 seconds for a regular spot is fine. 5 seconds because you fired your gun in a shooter is a bit excessive. The BF4 system of you showing up while you were shooting and the spot fading within a second and not moving with you was perfect.

Ah, didn't know that's how BF4's system worked. Sounds better tbh, maybe they'll change it.

It's not game breaking it's more that in the current state of the game there are already so many things that can 3D spot you. Players manually, drones automatically, shooting, sentry guns automatically, and everyone and their mom carrying prox sensors since it's one of the fastest ways to level AND best way to spot doesn't help matters. Player visibility as infantry isn't that big of an issues in this game given the color palettes of the maps/player models combined with a severe lack of cover/concealment.

The only thing 3D spotting does is make it easier for heli pilots to farm.

The prox sensors at least are much less common than they were since they nerfed them and knocked down grenades to 1. I guess with all the ways you can be spotted it just doesn't bother me that there is one more. You just kind of assume you're always spottable and if you want to be hardcore about it, you can equip the heavy silencer for stealth missions.

I wonder if there is space for a new operator that has something like Warzone's Ghost ability. I don't think it would be very fun though.

I've been playing with the SFAR and it's actually quite good at longer ranges while using single-shot mode. Seems very accurate like that; I've won a bunch of confrontations with snipers by just repeatedly popping them in the face (I think the snipers in question "over-commit" because they know they can kill me with their second shot, but I can get off enough to kill them before that).

Looking forward to unlocking the 40-round magazine. That'll help fix what seems to be the biggest weakness currently; the low magazine (which runs out very fast if used in full automatic).

Booyah- posted:

PKP seems to be everywhere now, what do people like with it

I like it because it's quite accurate at range (vertical recoil compensator helps) and has such a large magazine that I don't have to worry about reloading in more close-range fights. I'm usually very bad at hitting moving targets at range because I can't get the timing right (I'll always shoot just as someone changes their trajectory), but that issue is eliminated when I'm shooting in automatic and only need to worry about keeping my reticle over them.

So I guess the combination of versatility and being forgiving to use.

This has some weapon stats but it's incomplete atm. iirc it's gonna be updated soon along with the sym.gg site with charts and poo poo.

This is a chart someone made tracking how many bullets to kill for each weapon.

if it had higher velocity it would make the sniper rifles much worse and it might be detrimental for the overall TTK feel of the game

not really, the DXR has 1000 velocity and the lever action damage already falls off faster than any sniper rifle for non-headshots. they could at least give it 660 velocity like the SFAR, 600 is hilariously low

But also, slower rounds can cause more "damage" IRL because they have a lower chance of passing cleanly through the victim

The spawns on breakthrough are.. quite something. On defence i spawned behind enemy lines and died due to the out of bounds territory death countdown. Like I was put onto an attackerís spawn point, since it ran out of defenderís spawn points right at that moment.

Dogshit.

lol I've never had that happen, but sometimes it does feel needlessly cruel with the spawn locations when a point is being contested. Like when you're pushed back to the oil rig and it spawns you on the open ice where invariably you get runover by a hovercraft. Necessary for balance reasons, but it just feels like slow-motion losing.

It does, as ever, make the spawn beacon clutch though.

There's balance reasons but I think those are still bad spawns, but it's the fault of the maps. Same as the defender spawns at the end of Renewal (office buildings?). Once the attackers have pushed inside the building you're going to be spawning outside in the wide open fields where there's a 50/50 chance you'll immediately be blasted by a vehicle. If you don't, you'll probably get sniped trying to run with no cover to get back to the building. I don't know why it doesn't spawn you behind the buildings instead of to the sides.

I agree, it feels like the game just wants you to lose at that point.

I started getting that glitch today where you can't aim down the scope after exiting a vehicle. Only "fix" for it is to just use an Angel crate and get a new loadout. Strange that it took so long for me to start getting it though given how much I've heard about it.

Also TDM sucks. Infantry gunplay is not this game's strength, so the mode is just highlighting the worst poo poo.

I finally just uninstalled it. Idk what it is but I'm getting owned constantly and the lack of a scoreboard means I'm left feeling like I suck after every match. Portal is cool but too few maps, the main game is really fun at times but mostly feels like a grind sesh where I'm just meat. Plus I've hit two helos with the tank cannon and both times they put the explosion but didn't even count damage, which is just showing me the netcode isn't up to snuff. Ive gone back to BF4 for my 1 hour shoot man sesh, but I hope Dice can fix 2042 or at least spin off portal.

Careful, wanting a scoreboard in your shootman's fighting words 'round these parts.
