Bad Company 2 Mod Support "Out of the Question" at Release

There's a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 interview on BASHandSlash translating a German conversation with Patrick Bach from Gamestar magazine (thanks Joker961). They ask about a few absent features, with Patrick saying the following about co-op: "One of our game modes is squad deathmatch where four players fights against three other squads. Basically this is a coop mode where one fights against a 'superior' enemy. Kind of an online coop mode. And our focus is the online gaming." Of LAN support he says: "But it might be that we will offer this later." He also indicates the game will definitely not have mod support out of the box: "The player can change settings on the dedicated server but there won't be modding tools included in the retail game. The reason is the same as coop mode. That is, we decided to focus on other aspects because we want to achieve the highest levels of quality possible, rather than a buggy game with average gameplay but with modding possibilities. Theoretically we could still add mod support after release, we just don't know yet. But it's out of the question for the retail version."

Yeah, the hit detection is pathetic. You just need to factor in using ONE ENTIRE CLIP per person during a fire fight, or unless you get lucky with a headshot. It's spray and pray boyz!

Uhhh no. Burst firing will up your kill count ridiculously, spray and pray will get you torn up. The hit detection needs work for sure but I have no problems using smart burst fire to take people down. People who use spray and pray usually end up reloading while I still have more than a half a clip to kill them with if they aren't dead already.

In terms of bullet damage it requires more than a Call of Duty game though there is a hardcore server mode for those that want a more realistic experience with that. In your case it sounds like you're more suited to a hardcore server where it's mostly 1-3 hit kills.
