Hehe, the tac light won't help much if a guy's set up at the other end with a 249, bipod holographic sight and double sized mag. God I love that kit. It's so easy to cut down entire squads with that load out.

But I am getting tired of Metro. The beta really needs another map. Oh well, something to look forward to in the full release.

Not so keen on the bolt action scope, it does about the same amount of damage as the svd but takes about 5 seconds to pull the bolt after each shot...lame

yea same reason sv98 was superior in bc2. lashlight needs to be toned down and i think the scope glint should only show up when you are being aimed at by the sniper, not so the whole team can see it, kinda lame that way

Nah, the scope only needs to be toned down in low light. A scope in the day is pretty much just a mirror.

This is beta but really an alpha. I think they just fixed a few things from the alpha and shipped it as a beta.

I have faith in DICE to deliver and good final release with loads of graphical DX11 goodies.

There is no doubt in my mind that once this game has been patched a few times and the bugs have been ironed out we will be onto a winner, i just hope it doesn't take them too long to do it because i cant see the retail release being bug free....Now i just need my 6 series Nvidia card

We know we are going to get the following in the final release:

Tessellation
Displacement Mapping
Real Time Global Illumination (on destruction as well)
Real time Radiosity
Two types of Ambient Occlusion (SSAO, HBAO)
Deferred Anti-Aliasing (best, i.e what you see in your NVIDIA control panel)
Post Anti-Aliasing (lower quality, low bandwidth AA, i,e FXAA)
Deferred Rendering with all the goodies above.

This is pretty much why you'll need a GTX 580 to max it out at 60fps at 1920x1080 because even Crysis 2 doesn't do all this at once.

Oh man just remembered the feeling of trying to get 1st in a 64 man server. You have to work your ass off but it's fun as hell trying to stay on top

I'm usually around 5-7th. I'm ok at the game. I like it far more than I am good at it.

Snipers are always a plague in any FPS.
