Just read about some new tidbits of information about BF3.
A few things that I think will add wonderfully to the title.
1. Prone position is back in the BF series. Bad Company 2 may not have had it, and it was still present in the older BF2 title, but it's nice to see DICE putting it back in the franchise. There's pros and cons to all positions, and the removal of prone in BFBC2 was idiotic.
2. Tweaks to accuracy and stability for a time after diving to the deck. I love BF2. I really do. But one of the stupidest things that was possible in the game was running, diving to the deck and blazing away and actually reliably hitting someone. Dropping to the prone, especially hastilly and trying to engage is a very jarring experience. It should've been tweaked to get a massive hit in accuracy with BF2 but at least we see DICE getting smart about it (finally) for BF3.
3. Suppression effects when you're getting shot at. This, IMO, is a HUGE plus. Gives more oomph to the real purpose of MGs / LMGs / SAWs. Suppressing the enemy is a major function of such weapons, and the SAW-type of weapons? That is their only purpose for the fire team and squad levels that they're issued at. It's not about doing a Hollywood spray and pray and watch dozens of enemies drop. It's about throwing bullets at the enemy to make them worry about survival and affecting their ability to properly react. Also, for the Support / MG users, you can finally be rewarded for doing your job for suppressing the enemy. The older titles, along with other FPS titles, rewarded only the killing shot, and that meant the MGunners oftenly didn't get the credit they deserve for keeping the enemy's heads down. What they're doing for BF3 isn't pefect, but it's a nice step in the right direction.
Getting more excited about the title!
"I have only two out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold."
