Please reconsider. Kill cams are for COD and BF.

Re: Kill Cams


That more than anything else is an indicator of them possibly taking the wrong direction with the game an lowering health way too much. Since generally kill cams are only added to games where you die in a few shots an so didn't have time to know who or what it was that killed you.

It starting to look like the game will be a modern warfare with sci-fi skin. Needless to say this another feature I don't like. I want to hear a positive change for this game to break the streak of bad news.

Re: Kill Cams


I don't see an issue. The only 'sneaky' kills in the game are from cloakers and snipers. Snipers have a big fat tracer and so aren't that sneaky, and a cloaker will be cloaked and away. So its not like you're going to get some massive free intel.

PS1 had the death cam that showed your body and the kill spam that showed what you got shot by.

My thoughts exactly. In PS1 you got shot and saw your enemy usually before you died. Sounds like you might not know this time so they want to show you in case the player is camping then you see where they were.

All in all it sounds unnecessary. Just go to the loadout screen and show me a map with pictures of any medics around me so I know if I need to tap or not.

Almost every FPS ever has that. World of difference between that and a camera zooming on whatever killed you. And its not so much the fact its in there that bothers me is what it suggests. That they felt it was necessary to add this. As in the gameplay is probably too fast paced like a spawn/die shooter an that they felt people would rage not knowing who killed them in one shot.

Neither of those things showed you what bush on what hill the sniper was hiding in. I don't recall the tracers having been that obvious, and even if so we have no idea what they'll look like this time.

As for the cloaker: If it tracks your killer with the cam then all you do is tell your squadmates (people will be autojoining squads by default, remember) what corner he's hid in. That's a bit much free intel for my tastes.

Whether this is really an issue will depend a lot on what sort of kill cam they mean. If it's going to hover over the body and point in a direction, that won't be so bad. If it's going to zoom over to their location and give you a birds-eye view of them until they respawn then it's a stupid idea. If somebody managed to kill you before you knew what hit you, then you shouldn't know. They did a good job and you got reamed.

Re: Kill Cams


Why are any of you surprised? Seriously, every mechanic they can possibly put in from BF, they will do it. They have taken out most PS style stuff and put in BF. Kill cams are of course terrible much like the bf style vehicles, but saw it comin a mile away. They want their BF game, they just take BF, up the players, paste on PS names/factions/graphic look on top, and call it PS2. Not much left they can take from BF honestly, but i can think of a few things, but honestly dont wanna say it as im afraid they would see this and put that crap in too....but i bet they already have it and we just dont know it yet. =(

It really all depends on how they implement them, we'll see not a huge game breaker in my humble opinion.

BF never had kill cams. Atleast not to the degree of COD.

Re: Kill Cams


Yeah its shame that if they were gonna rip off Battlefield they didn't at least rip off the one's that were actually good. Like Battlefield 2 an 2142. Rip off those an just bump up health by about 4 times to account for larger number of players an it might actually be ok.

But no it looks like were getting the new age CoD envy version.
