Nice~ how the heck is it NOT a wallhack? Do you even know what a wallhack is? If I can mark someone and see him turn a corner~ and have a triangle on his head as he runs into a building, goes up to the second floor and then wait for me on that floor to go up the stairs, and I know all of this before I've even entered the building because of an arrow on his head~ how is it not a wallhack? Do I have latent psychic powers? lol Am I Charles Xavier?

SENIOR MULTIPLAYER DESIGNER Alan Kerz had this to say about the changes from the BC2 system to what we will be getting:

He will always be on the minimap. Vehicles are always fully 3D spotted, and LOS does not apply since they are larger more important targets with less threats (and it plain did not work to have jets flying around who couldn't see the tank you spotted for him to take out).

This lets you essentially "nudge" your buddy to tell him about a target, or point out a sniper on a hill you see but cannot engage (with your shotgun for example). But it prevents players from using 3D spotting as a wall hack.

Additionally, the primary motivator for the change is that 3D spots that you cannot see are not threats. We noticed that players would focus on 3D spots over everything else, meaning they would ignore people in line of sight. It's far less confusing when the 3D spot on a soldier can only be seen if you can see the soldier.
When the Senior Multiplayer Designer himself refers to the reason why the BC2 system was overhauled as being to remove (in his own words) wall hack abilities..

I think thats pretty much all that needs saying tbh.

How about no spotting and using your eyes. If you cant tell if the target is friendly or foe, then don't shoot until you're sure. I wish multi would go back to no stats and who ever wins the round wins and is left at that. Too many one man armies running and gunning.

I hope dust and foliage counts as not having LOS to target.

No I understand that it's fixed~ I was just responding to the guy I quoted directly who was implying that it wasn't originally and that people shouldn't have been crying about it.

I'll admit though, I love the damn things, broken or not~ it's a fun mechanic. It was legitimate cheat mode on~ of course it's going to be fun when it benefits me. lol
