Lightbulb C-4 the real way/Boomers


Can someone ask higby if we can attach explosives to vehicles.

Attach boomers to enemy vehicles/Maxes and detonate.

VBEDs, Vehicle borne explosive devices. basically place boomers on a friendly vehicle and drive them up to a vehicle (galaxy) and bail out then detonate the explosives.

Attach boomers to aircraft and kamikaze for increased ramming damage.

Run with a Boomer and detonate (Homicide bomber).

Sometimes in Battlefield 2, you can set your C4 on a humvee, and catch an enemy chopper while it's on the ground with a full load of 6 guys. Boom.

Few things in BF2 are more satisfying than sneaking into an enemy airfield and planting c4 on their newly spawned jets, waiting for someone to hop in and take off, and then detonating the payload when they're at altitude.

seeing as how players spawn the vehicles I dont know how much of that we'll be seeing... In either case I love the idea of sticky-boomers and would love to see them as well

Hopefully they'll restrict boomer placement to the ground/interiors like they did in the original... sticky weapons don't allow targets to react to their placement.

I don't think this is true, there's no such thing as an experienced suicide bomber.

We've already seen explosives planted on a vehicle.

It was in the first of Total Biscuit's videos, IIRC.

I nearly posted that too, but actually we didn't. They were on the ground, not the vehicle when he exploded them.

You could hear a thud in the interior as if someone placed a really heavy magnet on a fridge.

There now you have reaction time.

In the night ops video they were on the ground. I can see them doing certs for the boomers where you can attach it to a wall, vehicle, etc.

It would work as a double edged sword. Balanced like so -

While a suicide bomber vehicle would be a very dangerous weapon, it would also be mince meat if someone hits one of the bombs with a bullet.

Did they specify that it had to be an enemy vehicle or ANY vehicle?

If nothing else they could have a sidegrade or upgrade that warns when a remote explosive has been put on a vehicle or when someone is about to put one on the vehicle.
