and this is the DOF stuff I was talking about, where you basically "zoom in" more when you go ADS when you have DOF on

It has nothing to do with zoom. DOF on simply creates the illusion of focus. Most notoriously, it makes the inscriptions on the sights blurry.

just changed it from 55 to 60 and I can see a bit more, which is good I guess. I'll see how it plays and maybe increase it a little more.


I feel like a 90 FOV more accurately simulates what one can see in the real world, accounting for peripheral vision and whatnot. There's basically no reason to not go for a higher FOV. Well, it does make it a bit harder to see distant targets, but that's why you're using zoom optics, right?

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

FOV scaling. It can be either a percentage decrease in FOV or a fixed FOV value. I know you know that, but it's in writing now.

Proximity scan is a 100% must have for gunners.
Never shoot at jets/helis with the gunner cannon. It is never an okay thing to do.
Other than that, your guide definitely does help out those who don't know what they are doing.

Seriously, use prox, there is no substitute.


I would not say never. It is most of the time not the most useful thing you could be doing, and can hamper your driver if done in excess, but I find it a bit silly to say dictate playstyle in absolutes without appropriate context. Telling people to run prox and never shoot choppers 100% of the time may be generally sound advice... but I like to consider as wide a range of situations, playstyle preferences, and possibilities as it is reasonable to.

SOFLAM, Gunner Incendiary, and shooting aircraft (except for jets) are all sensible things to do in certain situations - whether they're acceptable or helpful depends heavily on the circumstances and the driver's preferences. I've had plenty of people tell me that gunners should 100% run Belt Feeder, that prox was 100% useless, that gunners should 100% run Stingers, that you should 100% shoot at choppers all the time... so no offense, but telling me to do something 100% without anything to qualify the statement isn't going to make me change my mind.

I assume your target audience is pub players who have little experience and have no idea what they are doing. People that don't know what they are doing have a tendency to simply make tanks an easier target. I am (along with anyone else who knows what they are doing) better off without a gunner that uses incendiary or shoots at random jets. Anytime the gunner is shooting, he is putting you on the minimap. That is bad. Not having the ability to see mines or infantry on the minimap is bad. The gunner seat is a support role, and as such should only be putting its effort into what will better serve the tank, and ultimately the team.

Sure, there are situations where it is okay to shoot at air vehicles, or play less of a support role. However, the gunners that can recognize these situations, and actually perform, do not need your guide.

Overall, even though I am being highly critical and blatantly opinionated, the guide isn't bad. The purpose is noble, and explaining things as clearly as you did is a great start for anyone looking for information. Significantly better than this site's current vehicle section. Hopefully that will get changed soon. ;)

I thought proxy scan was still broken? Even if it did get fixed, I've always preferred belt-feeder or SOFLAM for my gunner to run personally; on console you have to play very conservatively in a MBT or IFV because DICE artificially limits controller turning speeds on any vehicle (4 years later and still no slider to control sensitivity).

Wouldn't console turret speed make prox even more "mandatory", seeing how it allows you to better keep track of your surroundings and is a great early warning system against C4 runners?

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.
