Why can't I shoot while jumping/falling?

I don't mean bunny hopping, I mean while I'm jumping down a stairs, or falling after jumping through a window? i don't think realism comes into it as these are actions a human could perform. So why was the ability to do this removed?

AFAIK it's a design decision. However, CTE has changed that:

[Taken from the patch notes of Core Gameplay Patch #17]
  • Added functionality to be able to shoot when falling (not jumping)
    This change makes it possible to shoot when falling (past apex of jumps and falling off of objects). Significant spread to guns is applied when doing this however.

Things people said

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.

Experiment: Try jumping down some stairs while trying to not break your legs. If you pass this step, grab a soft air gun or whatever and try to shoot some rounds before you land, still without breaking your legs. Sounds like a bad idea? That's because it is.


But seriously, shooting while falling is nothing but Hollywood.

you forgot step 2 before the final step: try jumping from the stairs with a gun ithout breaking both your legs and the gun.

That was meant to be a surprise... :pinch: Hope it's not too late to cancel the cake... -.-


But yet again CTE is proving to be completely retarded...

Thanks I was not aware of this.

Irrelevant, because currently I can still jump out the window and not break my legs in game, difference is I cannot shoot while falling like in BF3

Hence the fix should be increased fall damage, not being able to fire while falling... :huh:

I remember when falling 2 feet in Battlefield 3 could kill you.

Ahhh those were the days. 10 feet would kill you in one map, 15 feet would put you to 20 health the next map

In hardline you can Shoot while jumping like in BF3. That was confirmed by people who played it at gamescom.
Source is somewhere in the hardline threads.
