BF3 Tactical Light to be Toned Down

DICE designer Alan Kertz tweets before and after images showing how they will be scaling back the brightness of the tactical light in Battlefield 3, which will no longer induce third-degree burns after it's fixed. Thanks Destructoid.

Also they really need to fix the Javelin you can only carry 3 missiles but you need 3 to actually destroy a tank.. which makes that a worthless weapon. Not to mention it seems to collide with stuff far to often thats not its target.. somehow i always thought Javelins were portable straight up - straight down style missiles

A Javelin can be toggled to either go up and come down on top of the target or fire straight-on. The problem is games never give the choice of which one to use; Modern Warfare 2 had us waiting for the rocket to sail up above helicopters (helicopters are what direct-fire mode is for in the first place) and BF3 doesn't let us use it to hit tanks on top.

One trick that helps a lot, after you lock on with the Javelin, there's a brief period where you can actually aim it somewhere else and it will still seek the target once you fire. So if you get a lock then aim up at the sky it will give it a higher arc and avoid a lot of obstacles.


Also there's the explosives specialization that will give you more ammo. And if you're really coordinated, you can have a teammate setup soflam for instant lockon. Plus it's fantastic at murdering repairing engineers.
