Battlefield 4 Weapons Reveal

180 posts in this topic

In a new video posted to youtube by daskro, we get a in depth look at the new launchers available in Battlefield 4:

This is the list:

Anti-Tank:

  • MBT-LAW
  • FGM-418 JAVELIN
  • FGM-172 SRAW
  • MK153 SMAW
  • RPG-7V2
Anti-Air:
  • FIM-92 STINGER
  • SA-18 IGLA
Javelins require a constant lock now.. thats very different. I kind of like that, it forces people to keep themselves exposed for those few extra seconds.. Its a shame the RPG still doesn't act like it does in real life, but I suppose it does need to get nerfed a bit considering how powerful it is. I have a feeling the SMAWs and SRAWs will be the most widely used.

Also, here is a video from Battlefield showing the difficulty of sniping with changing weather:

I like sniping, and honestly, I like this.. It will make shots more difficult but it will also allow people to get out of spawn traps. With waves and being able to dive under water, easy sniping kills might be done for.

I'm glad the stinger works the same.. but it still looks like it has too big of range. I always had far more kills with the IGLA than the stinger because of the reticule allowing an easier lockon IMO. Now that it will require a constant lock on, it should allow helicopters a better chance at being able to break the lock. Its a shame they didn't show how the air launchers work against jets though. Damn jets better not be able to just outrun them constantly. Jet experts on the PS3 annoy the living hell out of me because they can never get shot down by the soldiers on the ground.

Another video. Not really article worthy since its mostly been covered before. But Seeing Caspian Border's antenna fall makes me wonder if this is where the idea of "levolution" came from, obviously it doesn't really change the dynamic of the map much, but I wonder if levolution events will be added to the other 3 BF3 maps in the classic map pack that will later be released.

 

Honestly I hope Wake Island doesnt make the cut for the 23432th time. That map is in every BF game, and its really not that great. Gulf of Oman is the only old school map I'd like to see back.

 

FuShe Pass wouldn't be a bad choice either

I was thinking about that Caspian Border antenna also, it could be considered their first levolution.

 

I liked Wake Island and spent a lot of time on that map.. mostly because of the vehicles available on it, tanks, attack helicopters and mobile aa. If the Mobile AA was available on any other map for the PS3 version other than on one other map only on rush mode and only while defending, I probably wouldn't have played it so much. Once Armored Kill came out and the Mobile AA was finally on more maps, I hardly played Wake Island anymore.

 

I noticed the vehicles can now get paint jobs.. I like that but at the same time I don't. I guess it'll help distinguish people tho. Hey, what tank are you in? The blue one!

I should schedule that friday off just to play the beta all day on PS3. I'm pretty certain I can get it on Oct 1st, but I'm going to assume there will be a PSN store update problem and the game wont even roll out until 7pm and then it'll have to download overnight, then connection issues.. I figure by friday the beta will be in full swing... Now I just need to prepare and clear off about 10gb or so off my ps3 for that download.

Hopefully that's cleared up on PS4. On 360 I downloaded the beta and played it immediately. Even with PS+ being paid, It will still take them a year or so to catch up IMO. They don't have the same funds starting up that Xbox 360 did from Xbox for their online service going in.

I'm thinking it was a PS3 issue. Some games seem to download fast based on my internet connection, but some games are ridiculously slow to download. Last of Us was probably the slowest digital download I've ever experienced. I don't know if its because the game was downloading from the Naughty Dog servers, maybe that was the problem. Most games download fully off PSN and then install, but there are some games that download a small install file, turn on and then download through the game.. like DC Universe, Defiance and Last of Us to name a few. I don't know if those games were downloading from their own servers or not.. but I hope they learned something from the Last of Us download bull crap.. I had to leave that game running almost 2 nights straight to finish downloading it. I'd have set it to download in the background but it would only download if the game was running. One nice thing was after it hit a certain percentage I could play the game while having it continue downloading in the background.

The biggest problem with PSN is probably their store.. There has never been a consistent timely update. When they have games available digital on the day of release, people expect to get their pre-ordered game at midnight.. but no.. they don't get the store update done until 7 or 8pm sometimes. People could just go to the store, buy the game and beat it by the time the store updated.

 

I'm going to assume they have a much better infrastructure in place for the PS4, especially considering all their claims about their Gaikai tech. That and since Sony is estimating 5 million units sold by the end of the year, they'll be experiencing a higher volume of constant users than Steam during a weekend.

Did you ever play MGS4? The install from the disc was horrible. You had to sit there and watch Snake smoke for 30 minutes. XD

 

It seems like they fixed this years later however.

I still haven't had a chance to play MGS4.. lmao, that is horrible. XD At least they gave everyone some health warnings. XD

 

That reminded me of the Harold and Kumar dvd menu.. it was the only pointless screen I ever watched on purpose. It wasn't even loading anything, it was just the menu, but I went to get something to drink and I heard them b*tching on the menu and I kept watching.

 

Found it!

 

 

Games should have install screens that are entertaining like this. XD

You definitely need to play it, its probably my favorite MGS since MGS1. Although this game doubles as a movie. A lot of the cut scenes are 30min to an hour, they do have some alternate view angles at times. The best part about them however, is you can pause them. I remember the first time i pressed start because I was pressed for time and it paused instead of skipping the whole thing I was relieved. It was my first play through and I was pissed I was having to skip it only to find out I didn't have to skip it. :P

I hate that! Lmao! I've held off on using the bathroom on so many occasions while a cut scene is playing just to find out I could have paused it at any time. XD

Meryl is back in the game? I'll have to play this. I'll look for it on amazon.

 

Oh.. and seeing as this is a battlefield topic.. (so off topic now, lol).. I played some BF3 tonight to get myself ready for the BF4 beta.. I got 4 more kills with my EOD Bot. I'm at 26 kills with it now.. I might just go for a service star with it. XD

I'm sure the DLC will have new assignments. I just hope there is never a Gun Master assignment ever again. I can deal with EOD bot, but the Gun Master was way to stressful, I really dont want to go through that again. lol

I've played the hell out of BF3 and I've only played Gun Master maybe 20 times and only because it was in a map rotation. I try to avoid it at all costs. I like the Close Quarters maps, but because of the limited number of players for those maps, theres hardly any servers for them and when there are, gun master likes to rear its ugly head. -_-;

Hmm Hopefully there will be more players. On 360 I always found a Zebra Tower 24/7 300% Ticket Conquest Domination, or a rotation with CQD only. Odd that Gun Master would be in the mix. I came in 2nd on Gun Master on scrapmetal. My arm was swinging the knife for the winning kill when the screen cut to the final results. lol That was the one and only time i finished that high. I'd always get 6th place which aggravated me to no end since you had to finish top 5 for the assignment.

I think I said it wrong.. its limited players / server renters that put the CQ maps into rotation.. I'll always find a zeba tower 24/7 and a few others, but most servers are always full.. especially the official EA servers. I'll usually find maybe 1 or 2 pages of joinable servers.. nothing compared to searching for original maps on conquest.. I'll get 30 pages of servers to jump into easily. The biggest problem I have with the CQ maps is all the hundred star colonials. Hardcore no life bastards running CQ servers.. and of course the guy running the server has all of them on the same team.. I either have to go into a que on an EA server and wait 5+ mins to get started into a game, or join a server with a bunch of level 6 guys versus a team of colonials that know exactly where everyone will spawn. -_-;

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      Nvidia is launching an online game streaming service called GeForce NOW.
      I'm going to quote myself here from another topic:
      With Playstation having it's own streaming service and now Nvidia making it's own service, having to own physical consoles and PCs specifically for gaming might come to an end within our lifetimes.
      The downside to the Nvidia service is the cost. I've been seeing the numbers "$25 per 20 hours of gaming" floating around alot. If so, thats a hell of an expense for now.

      Am I the only one suffering from steam sale fatigue? Maybe its just me but ever since they changed the store to the design it is now nothing in the store appeals to me anymore. Its probably because of the massive influx of every game from every independent developer. Theres so many games on there that I never look at what new games came out anymore because in any given week 40+ new games were released and 250+ games are listed in their weekly sales. I stopped looking and only pay attention to humble bundle sales now. Even with the steam sale going on now I don't see any huge sale thats leaping out at me to take my money anymore. Sure I still have a backlog of games but there seems to be less and less new AAA or indie games that I'm interested in for PC. Unless its a game I want for console I hardly look at the steam store anymore even though I use steam on a daily basis.

      Powered by the same GPU as the Nvidia Shield and a couple smart phones and chromebooks, (and not as powerful as current gen consoles or even close to gaming PCs), the Nintendo NX will use the Nvidia Tegra as a GPU/CPU combo for a handheld console with detachable controllers. It will also come with a home base that you can plug into to play the console on the TV. It will still play cartridges.
      My guess is that it will look like the Wii U controller, except with detachable nunchuck controllers on the sides. I would photoshop something to look like that but I need a new photo editing program. ehh.

      The Tegra is a decent chip, but I don't see Nintendo competing with Sony or Microsoft at this point anymore. Its like they are doubling down on their handheld market, which makes sense to me. They know how to make good handhelds and they sell. But if this is all true it seems a bit too gimmicky to me. The Wii and Wii U was all targeted at families and party games, but this is obviously targeted toward individuals and solo players. If the screen is the normal size of a cell phone and its meant to run games all the time, I wonder how hot the thing will get and if it'll need to be recharged every 2 hours.
