    Who the hell is their military advisor? :bang:

    I love how the sniper would have to be using a slingshot to arc the shot to hit them in the beginning. Also what sniper just randomly shoots?

    In addition, a .50 cal sniper round would go right through the cover they are using at the end.

    This is battlefield, not arma. I mean I get your point, its not realistic at all, but at the same time watching 4 guys take twenty minutes to kill a sniper in a realistic fashion wouldn't be too exciting.

    I hear all your points and you're all right.

    I guess the army did turn me into a bit of a Grinch about these matters.

    Ha to be fair I'm no army/gun expert but iv seen the obscene amount of damage a .50 cal round can do (are they not used for anti vehicle?) seems like the sniper in the vid had a hunting rifle and a wonky eye lol

    The sound seems odd in this video, you can hear the rifle shot before the bullet hit the walls. Bullets travel a lot faster than sound, well at least this was the case the last time i checked. Granted the game is in alpha stage.

    It's a game. How are you going to know where you were killed from if you're killed 2 seconds before you hear the gun sound.

    -Nice ambient occlusion
    -Filtered shadows
    -Good speed on the standing animation
    -Looks like there could be a surpression effect when you are under fire. Notice how the screen goes blurry when the sniper fires at them.

    Well one of their key selling points of this game is sound, and you are right, it just a game so it shouldn't be hard for them to fix this :D

    That is actually the case in BFBC2. Depending on the distance from the shooter, it's not rare to be hit and then hear the sound when you're already falling to the ground.
    The swish of a bullet is separate from the gunshot bang, you can hear the first one without hearing the second at all.
    And there are vapor traces to give away shooter's position.
    And killcam for wussies.

    To be fair, in BFBC2, you hear the sound as you're dieing, meaning if you acually have enough braincells, you can use the sound to tell the general direction that you were shot from. Most newbs don't have a clue, but if you have enough brain cells, you can kill the sniper fag that killed you beforehand without much effort unless they move, which about 5% of people do. The other 95% are newbs who think BC2 is amazing and pretend to be non COD idiots.

    Did they just take out a sniper with a 66? Also is the building they fired at made out of TNT? Still... I loved it, want to play NAOW!
