Planetside 2 Needs Prone


Title says it all. This would be a welcome addition in my books. I've enjoyed this feature in many other titles and believe it adds a wealth of strategic enhancements to gameplay.

Good luck on selling this one to the PS1 community. I can already hear the crying about infils laying down somewhere nobody can find them in a base. It's also a far shot to be added as I think they would have to redesign the maps in some ways also.

No. It doesn't. PS1 didn't need prone.

If your signature is bigger than your post you need to reconsider your priorities.

Not having prone discourages camping-style gameplay. Planetside has always been a more aggressive sort of shooter than something like BF3, and this is one area I don't mind them keeping the same.

Prone encourages static gameplay... crouch is plenty.

I hate prone. I've found little reason to use anything but it 90% of the time in BF3.

ya the last thing we need are the annoying people who sprint at you and dive to the ground. PS2 will be a great game without it.

Not advocating putting dolphin diving into PS2, but every time I try running at a person and going prone I end up taking a bullet in the nugget. So if they did add it that doesn't really bother me. Also, I notice on bf3 it's insanely easier to headshot prone soldiers, so it kinda balances out.

If they are using classes, they could restrict who can go prone. Say only light assault, medics, engies, infils.

I find it comical how many of you old vets, who in other threads have been vehemently defending a hardline punishing PS experience where realism trumps all are not open to this.
