Not to mention 90% of my close encounters result in my dieing. Maybe I just suck at it, but I cannot run and gun. I'm always on the move but keep my distance because I simply don't stand a chance up close.
In every FPS in the last few years for some reason it is like I'm rendering the game faster than others or something. Especially in BC2 and BF3 I cannot count how many times I've clearly been around the corner and that last bullet kills me. Does this happen to anyone else?
Remember, 90% pf the people out there do not play as well as this guy, and also that's on a console, so good PC players are going to be even faster
I think it just comes with experience though. Try to anticipate where people are. Don't sprint unless you are certain someone isn't going to round the corner and pop you. Try to aim for the chest region, let go for about 3 shots, take a slight break to let the gun drop back down, and shoot again. Make sure you have the right weapon for the job. Many times, if someone is out of range, I don't even fire, but take a mental note of where they might be, and try to outflank or follow them.
But yea, I have been killed around the corner so many times, and sometimes escaping with 1 or 0 health

getting killed around the corner is from this game using client side hit detection. The trade off is having what you see and shoot at is what you hit. It just shifts the lag to make shooting guys less frustrating, but getting hit more frustrating

It was PC, not console. His clan server is posted in the video description. The video description states that it is BF3 PC.

The crosshair movement looks nothing like PC. Are they playing with a gamepad? You can see the way the crosshair moves side to side... Maybe some of the footage is from PC, but a whole bunch of it isn't. Also at 1:28, what's with the emblems of the dead player. My pc game doesn't have that.

Hmm? You don't have the revive emblems? Don't you play medic? The skulls turn to revive emblems when you get close. The reason they might look "odd" is because he is running the color blindness versions, different colors of red and green.

Lots of key prompts (R) for pickup of weapons too. Def not console footage.

Maybe that's why. the sequence of 0:34 -0:50, the way the scope moves in "jumps" to the side, and not a smooth movement, looks just like a gamepad. you don't think so?

Oh man that's just crazy! The guy zooms and shoots to kill. That's so fast! The worst thing is that people see red marks of enemies through the smoke. This is such an annoying bug. I started playing hardcore to avoid this stuff.

I can gurantee you that EA/Dice spent more time on the multiplayer as it is a multiplayer game, the SP was thrown in there to attract a wider audience such as yourself...I haven't even fired up SP yet or CO-OP. When i do get round to playing the SP on BF3 i expect it to be nothing more than what BFBC2 SP was like...Linear and over with after a few hours.
