Weapon Descriptions

You know that "Might be added in the future" that inhabits the Description section of the stat pages? Well:



I did a little write-up on gun descriptions for BF4 (minus the shotguns for obvious reasons) as a summer project.

Symthic BF4 description writeup - Google Docs

It's not perfect, though. The SCAR-H SV in BF4 isn't the Mk20, so idk what to put for it other than "semi-auto SCAR-H with a longer barrel, paint job and a dinky, never-used rail kit on the front," and a few other guns -- namely the sniper rifles -- could use a few more lines. Any ideas on how to improve it would be much appreciated. Also will be willing to do descriptions for the shotguns if they end up getting their own stat pages.

Memorable Quotes

I once tried to burn a bridge, but due to the half-assed levolution implementation it kept standing up just fine.

Compared to the MTAR, the PDR has the TTK of your average pack of cigarettes.

What can't be changed can be banned.

I'm completely serious. Well, seriously insane actually :P

Holy. Damn.

Thanks for doing this! I have been trying to remove "WIP" and "Coming soon" and similar texts all around the site as none of them really were under construction, just ideas. Thanks to this we can finally fill in at least one of those!
I will comment more if I find something when I add these on the site (later today or tomorrow hopefully, new laptop so need to dig up credentials etc). Just to make it official I must ask if I may use these on the site (symthic.com)?

Oh and thanks a bunch! ^^. Throw some rep to this guy, fellahs

Holy hell, awesome work!

As a related side note, while yours are undoubtedly better, there are in-game descriptions for most of the weapons, it's just that the only time you ever see them is at the end of round screen when you first unlock it. If someone wants to find them in the files, to quite possibly be used properly in the game, that would be appreciated.

(for the sake of formalities) Yes you can! And no problem: it was something to do, so I figured I might as well make something out of my summer.

EDIT:
@BleedingUranium
I guess the DICE-made ones could help for the ones that were kinda bland. Some of them I couldn't really find anything concrete or interesting on.

Fits in nicely. I did read all of the descriptions and they are fitting, altho my grammar check is not one of the best. Nevertheless, a fine addition to the site!
I will be nudging Sym to push this out to official site ^^

Thank you for this.

Thanks for the heads up!
*Logs out of Symthic in preparation*

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.

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

UCAV:
"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

The World Champion went to China once.

They called me a Gweilo.

So I kicked a big fucking hole in their wall and let all the Mongolians in.

just thought I'd share.


The thought of Assaults running out of ACE 23 rounds mid firefight, Engineers facing the rear of an unaware MBT with no rockets left, Recons unable to...Whatever the fuck they do. These are the things that keep me up at night ;(


About hunturk:
I don't know what's funnier, the video itself of the fact that an unlisted video has more views than most of your normal videos :P

You just live to hit people upside the noggin with a Math Bomb, don't you?

[context] Maybe it's the UK's overly aggressive porn filter at work. After all, it does have the word "monkey" in it and monkeys have been known to have sex so...


Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"


I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

Aww!
*pinches cheeks*
So cute!

That's fucking awesome !!
"Thanks a bunch !"
Stats thingy

Quotes of wisdom (maybe)


I'm a battlefield player, good sir. I don't play metro.

PC is no longer PC master race. It's PC mustard race, because consoles need to ketchup :'D

DICE gave so much into making commander better, but lemmings be lemmings I guess.

As a good guy that don't want to use overly glitched weapons, I'll quit using the MTAR and switch to the ACWR until it's fixed

The world needs more people like you


+1, I think we're all in agreement that more MrT3as would be an awesome thing :love:
Although if that was the case they'd use up so much of the world's awesome that there'd be none left for the rest of us! :D

yes, I know, I'm a big-ass hypocrite

I like it, great job!

One small correction on the F2000, it should be "vain" instead of "vein".I don't think the F2000 and P90 share blood vessels.

As for the SCAR-H DMR, FN markets it as the "SCAR-H PR" (Precision Rifle) FN SCARŪ-H PR

Hmm, Dilemma... Would it be a good idea to add Attachment Recommendations to them?

On the one hand, with the stats provided this shouldnt be needed... and people tend to just copy them without adapting them to their situation.

On the other hand, many need exactly this... a guide through the jungle of stats, confused by YouTuber statements.
