Max Payne 3 Multiplayer Trailer

Rockstar Games now offers a new trailer from Max Payne 3, the upcoming third-person shooter sequel. The clip shows off multiplayer action from the game, as word is: "see how Max Payne 3 Multiplayer brings the franchise's combination of highly responsive and cinematic shooting action to the realm of online multiplayer across a range of game modes, the implementation of Max’s signature Bullet Time® special ability and how we utilized the third-person perspective - allowing players to connect with a character they can see while still retaining full fluid control during gunplay."

Here's my take:

Player A has player B in his FOV.
A activates Bullet Time.
For A and B, time slows down. A is able to target B at regular speeds. B is only able to target A at slowed down speeds.
As long as B is in A's FOV, B is in A's bullet time "web". He can get out of it either by leaving A's FOV or by activating bullet time himself, accelerating his targeting.
Anyone else visualizing A and B from outside A's FOV will see both players moving through the XYZ space slowly but A will be able to target/turn at regular speeds.

So a player activating bullet time gets a good boost against anyone in his FOV but has a problem against all others. This will make MP mayhem

That's how I figure it will work too. But that does mean that because Person A used bullet time on Person B, everyone else also gets a benefit over B as well. Maybe not as much of a benefit as A against B but still something.
