Bad Company 2 Plans

Planet Battlefield has some details on changes in an upcoming patch for the PC edition of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, DICE's military shooter sequel. Some of this comes from a future build of the game that a Russian blog got their hands on, with DICE's Barrie Tingle confirming the bona fides of some of what they learned. This includes plans for an exclusive infantry mode for the PC, the implication a new map is coming, and a new chat mode. Finally, the developer also known as Bazajaytee mentions one further addition: "Good guess :) The SPECACT will be patched into the PC version and made available on EA Store to unlock it." Thanks Ant.

YOu guys are complaining about the 94 and the Gustavs and not ONE FUCKING COMPLAINT about the snipers?

1. Snipers get perfect aim with all rifles.
2. One shot kills with all rifles.
3. 12x zoom where you can't even see them on the map.
4. Mortars that can kill everything
5. C4!
6. Snipers not grabbing flags, not wanting too, no incentive to!

Snipers have ruined several maps that just turn into a sniper fest while everyone else takes a nap in the back.

Wow you need help with the game if snipers are that much of a problem. I'm sorry, I know the whole "youre just bad" thing is cliched as hell but in this case it really fits.

1) Snipers do not get "perfect aim" with all rifles, sniping from anything above medium distance will incur bullet drop which needs to be adjusted for. This gets quite drastic at ~300.

2) Snipers only get one shot kills for headshots and thats working as intended. If you got hit by a sniper in the body and died, you were already injured.

3) It's not hard to figure out where a sniper is shooting from and decent snipers move every few shots anyways. Play on non-realism with kill-cam if you really care about it that much.

4) Mortars have a long cooldown and reduced damage against vehicles now. This isn't even a valid complaint in the first place.

5) C4 means the sniper has no mortars. C4 requires up close and personal work which is at odds with your other complaints.

6) Playing another class wouldn't magically cure that, those people will still be douchebags. First off there is no "Sniper" class in this game, its Recon and Recon can be played many different ways. I dont like people who play Medic and just rambo it up while never rezzing or dropping kits. I dont like assault who only drop ammo boxes on themselves to spam tubes or nades.

The AN-94 was only "buffed" at range, it's always been this good at medium range but no one was using it because they were too busy tubing and that includes most of you complaining. The Gustav is fine as is, if anything needs a nerf its the splash damage on the explosive perk.
