Actually, it feels like the VIP is faster than the rest? Or is it just me?
The VIP is faster because he's not lugging around 50lbs of weapons and armor. If you lighten your load you will move faster too. Take the lighter vest, drop some grenades and other things that you don't use, and notice how much faster you move.
It did feel a bit slow at first, but only because I was used to running at light speed in other games. IMO leave it alone, I like it the way it is.
I thought Swat4 was going to have realistic bullet physics and penetration. Swat3 had it. I have yet to see it in the demo.
