Lots of people are going to be crying when the final release comes out and they play it on ultra. 'OMG this runs like crap on my rig, the beta ran fine!' I'm pretty sure this beta is a locked medium settings.

Would be silly for a beta to restrict something like that since that would be part of testing the engines performance and reliability. But it would explain why the game doesn't look nearly as good as the videos shown prior to release.

If that were the case though why is a single map over 3gb of data?

The beta has two maps totaling 980MB. I'm sure SP will be the eye candy mode. There has to be a limit defined in multiplayer graphics quality wise because being able to set extremely low settings could give people an advantage, or very high setting players would have a huge disadvantage.

Just played sniper for the first time since the alpha. One reaction= Now I know how people pull off 50-10 scores. I went something like 15-2 in the first game.
