Bad Company 2 oversniping

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I just spent one hour and a half playing my favorite game BC2.
Well, one thing im shure... Oversniping is becoming more and more of an issue.
The key to sucsess in the Conquest game, is too have the team well organized, and to have the classes evenly spread out by the team. I mean like 4 Assault, 4 Engineers, 4 Recons and 4 guys on the vehicles. What ive seen from my conquest gameplay is that 50 - 70% times you fall in a team that half or more the team is sniping. I mean not doing recognition. The job of Recons is to spot and find clear ways for the team to flank the enemy. I all i see is sniping. Guys camp in a rock and then shoot whatever it comes to the scope. Very sad.
The key to sucsess in the Rush game, is to raid the objective, with one or two Recons spotting guys from behind, and let the other guys do the job in the front. Sometimes what i see in almost every game, is half of the team camped in a rock sniping some dudes that are defending. They just DON´T attack, they just sit there and snipe. Very sad again.
I just hope this issue gets better on BF3, they NEED to LIMIT the snipers to AT LEAST 4 PEOPLE. BC2 gets worse everyday, because, people just DON´T KNOW the rule of the Recon class.
People understand that the Recon class is for camping in a rock and shoot guys up. It´s just totally wrong. Sometimes i just feel that Battlefield is turning into COD. And even more, with COD people coming to BF3 i think this is going to turn into a issue... Let´s hope DICE guys know what they´re doing.
Some people may not agree with me, but i needed to took this out of my head, and say what i think.

bought BC2 during the steam sale. After reading all about it here, I expected Arma II/TF2. What I got was a bunch of idiots running around a map knifing, while some other idiots snipe me when I spawn.

No doubt COD ... "players" will be getting BF3.

Pubs are always going to be snipfests.

Yup, and most "snipers" suck.

I take them out with a burst of VSS or AN-94.... or sneak behind and knife them. Nothing more pleasing than sneaking up on a squad of campers and getting all their tags.

BC2 in game chat is nerfed so a 3rd party chat client is needed. Personally, I go Recon, Engin, or Assault as needed.

overall, i think you're right. the majority of servers I've gotten on are full of snipers, although some are playing the sniper class but assaulting with a VSS.

i've managed to find one server that i play on consistently. i don't go to any other server. took me a while to find something that actually was enjoyable.

I bought BC2 when it came out, and it was NOTHING like it is today, sadly... People knew how to play, and now has come to this... Well, i´m not saying its generalized, but in the servers i play its constantly happening, unfortunatly

You guys need to play on different maps. The big open maps allow for more of the noob recons that snipe from their spawn, but the smaller, more clusterfack maps (Oasis, White Pass, Laguna Presa, Panama) place a lot of emphasis on the Assault, Engi, and Medic classes.

The large maps like Heavy Metal and Harvest Day generally degrade into campfests and you get sniped whenever you step into the open.

BC2 is still my favorite shooter. Though I can't wait to see if BF3 brings back the emphasis on squadwork.

...What?
I don't recall anyone ever saying Battlefield was anything like the combat "simulator" that is ARMA II... and it certainly doesn't resemble in TF2 in anyways. Entirely your fault if you expected otherwise.
Also...
Knifing is never a problem in Battlefield if you ever watch your back.

@OP
In any large game that has people playing solo (without friends), you'll have lots of snipers. It's unfortunate, but really, what can you do?

Find 3 friends, form a squad, and stomp on them.


Teamwork is so important.... a squad of lesser skilled can take on better squads with good teamwork. i.e. Two engineers in the tank.... one jumps out to repair until tool overheats.... switches with driver who then repairs. Or an engineer gunner jumps out and hits enemy tank with rocket and then starts repairing.
