[HBG] Battlefield 3 Flashlights Finally Get Their Brightness Lowered - Page 6

post #51 of 110
at last. There should have been a small indicator when you first gotten the tac light like saying, press T to turn off.

thank goodness i havent faced someone who turned the thing on and off, that would even suck.

...at the same time some of our characters show that they have them stunner shades being worn.....they dont work!

This. And people who sit prone or crouched in the middle of a doorway. They deserve it.

This is great news. Really was annoying as hell having your teammates blind you all the time. I also like the idea of the enemy still being able to use it.

Battle field brightness is so much and sound effects is horrible.If it is just for your teammates weapons, then this will not be a big problem to solve, if you ask me. Yes, I know they are bright, in real life, but not as good as before in the daylight, the image of the bright patches. In addition, sunglasses.

my issue with it is, shooting directly into the center of the light or just below it rarely nets me a kill, its like the flashlight is a shield sometimes. I get that its the point, but my god its so obnoxious. Glad its toned down for teammates, because it will help distinguish friend from Foe.

I feel like there are a significant number of TKs in this game because of that stuff, and the delayed team identifier, which I'm OK with. Definitely guilty of shooting first asking later, but i'm trying to be better about it. Haha

Im sorry but that is not an educated decision.

You hardly encounter them, if you do its easy to shoot them because you can see exactly where they are.
Like most snipers use lasers which is completely retarded because you can see them easier especially if they use the scopes which have no shine.
I disagree. I have the game and the flashlight is literally the only thing that I haven't liked about the game so far. Almost everyone I've encountered uses it, and since it covers so much of your screen you can shoot at it, but you don't know exactly where they are standing because you can't see anything. They either have to reduce the brightness (for enemies too), add sunglasses to the game (everything in any game should have a way to counter it), or remove it entirely (my personal favorite choice).

Good, nerfing it for teammates. It does have its advantage of course, if you are in close quarters and someone shines that at you just that tiny bit of disorientation is enough for them to put you down.
