BF3 MAV is So Mav

This trailer from Battlefield 3 shows the MAV (Micro Air Vehicle) being used as a transport vehicle, rather than a reconnaissance device, showing it taking players to difficult-to-access areas, a particularly useful trick for snipers. This is noted on In Entertainment, where they raise the question of whether this is an exploit that should be patched out of the game. Thanks Devicer.

It's not an exploit (like hiding in buildings, making you invulnerable), it's an unintended gameplay quirk (like skiing in Tribes) that takes skill to pull off and still leaves you vulnerable.
I'll agree it's an unintended quirk, but it's not a good one. Having areas only accessible to a handful of people through this method is not very balanced, and the end result is that you have very well shielded snipers being able to pick things off at their leisure. There's a reason they removed the deck on the antenna on Caspian, after all.
