Marksman bonuses?

Any idea how marksman bonuses will work in BF4?


With the introduction of DMRs, will all classes be privileged to the marksman bonus? Will they have to use DMRs only? Will shotguns running slugs get the bonus? Does the bonus even exist anymore?



For that matter, in BF3 did it matter what class you were or did it count as long as you were using a sniper rifle (kit switch from assault to recon)?

Always found marksman bonus only being for recon to be stupid

when The World Champion Golgo-13s a target, he should get some extra points to go along with the mail asking how he did that with a M16.

Marksman bonus is still in the game, and if I'm not mistaken, DMRs do score the bonus. Other weapons do not.

I doubt that they'll change it much.

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

This.


If I can counter-snipe your ass with a 870 or a G3 in your hidy-hole X-hundred meters away, why can't I get an extra few hundred points?


But I can see how scoring a final shot headshot on a target X meters away with an M16 is kind of an empty reward. I didn't correct for elevation much, I didn't time the running target with bullet flight time, I just saw, fired a burst, and killed. Not really deserving of a marksman bonus.



What if it worked this way:

If you are using a Sniper or a DMR you can score a marksman bonus for headshots past 50m. However, if you kill someone by headshot past 50m with any weapon while THEY are using a Sniper or DMR, you get a marksman bonus.

This way the random M16 headshot kill won't score a bonus, but a counter-snipe M16 headshot WILL!


I think that'd be the best way of doing it as a proper skill reward as opposed to making it just native to all classes/weapons...

Marksman bonus was bound to the weapon, not the class.

17:38 Riesig: yes


Quoted from "Sym"

In other words, this game's code looks like it's written by 5 year old kiddo compared to how DICE did things with BF3.

Marksman bonus is because snipers have shitty scores even if they do an awesome job picking off the important guys... I wish they'd put a cap on it like BC2 though.. Like 350 meters as it was there...

Or, you get it if your weapon is on semi auto (includes shotgun slugs by default). Or if you're on auto but squeezing off single shots, as I often do with the G3 at range, though I'm sure this is more of a pain in the ass to detect from a developer's perspective than just checking if the gun is on semi mode.

Can't rightfully Golgo 13 somebody with a phantom M1 anyway.
