End Game dirt bikes and friendly fire

Anyone else having a problem telling what side a dirt bike's riders may be on? My friends have also commented on this so I don't think its just me. The friend or foe Dorito seems smaller than usual, and since I usually play hardcore that has led to me inflicting more team kills than usual.

Short term they need to make it more noticeable. Larger would help.

As a long term solution, how about you can see your team players all in one color, e.g. light blue or green, instead of the cammo colors? The enemy is whatever their cammo is. That would solve recognition issues. OK that may be too garish, so you can be more subtle than that, but I'm not really for the game being so realistic that you can't tell if someone's on your side or not. That's not an actual fun feature. There are solutions, e.g. team based trim colors. Better FOF Dorito's can help though I'm not a Dorito fan (except for eating of course).

I'm having more trouble spotting the bastards when they jump off... It's like they teleport backwards or something making it look like they're continuing on but then they appear behind your back...

But yeah, it's a bit hard to tell the difference, though the minimap is pretty obvious

I agree, it seems they just press E and POOF, they disappear from the bike and re apear 5 meters behind it

I wish and i hope in the Battlefield 4 that the character models are more different when compared to the other team. Especially since the recon class looks similar on both teams. As for the bikes well always use the minimap and maybe put an optic on your gun.

the icon for the bikes is really small and it very hard to tell if someone on a bike is friendly or foe.

On HC, get teamkilled a lot. I think it's because the nametag is underneath, rather than overhead.

This right here. I've noticed the damn blue icon is below the teammate and practically below the bike itself, so you usually don't see it when they come roaring up a hill or something. Not playing hardcore, I haven't TK'd anyone, but I have definitely show at teammates because of it. Frustrating.
Something cool should go here.

I am not a HC player, but I think that the player models are the best give away of friendly/enemy.

Sure, when taking a split second decision while your mind is on 'auto' isn't the best time to look at the player models, but given the identification dori to is hardly visible...

And there are also trolls on HC who like to sit in vehicles disabled by you, bam triple TK.

Never again

I find majority of the complaints I hear about this game somehow never appear in my games.

And then there are teammates who use camo's (especially spec ops on US) who look like the enemy so you're fucked either way ;>
