Ok we have all been playing BF4 in BETA or now in the new released format. What does everyone think? Pro's and Con's. I feel that the game connection issues are starting to resolve themselves slowly and should soon be a thing of the past. I do think that the weapons should be set up like they were for BF3 where Russians had standard Russian weapons and vice versa for the Americans. I also like how they broke down achievements, unlocks, battle packs and promotions into different categories. It's kind of like a Christmas present when you unlock something and not know what's inside but chances are you will still like it. So far the only unlock I do not like is the XM25 SMOKE.....HATED IT!! Really EA? It makes a small cloud of smoke and you can still see through it. I'd do more obstruction of view by poking my fingers in the other guys eyes. I feel the pistol rank ups are a tad slow and the pistols seem to be underpowered. The miniguns/chain gun/heavy machineguns hits need to be upped. I get really irritated when I have a guy dead to rights with the minigun/chain gun/heavy MG and he is running at me with hit markers galore showing up and he may actually get a shot or two off before dying. It may not sound like much but what if he is an Engineer with a rocket launcher? He dies and your going to if he gets that shot off. The claymores have been revamped to have 3 trip wires shoot out and they STAY IN PLACE AFTER YOU DIE!!!!Tanks need to be boresited better as the round hits way low of where the reticle actually is. I am really getting into sniping now. Even though the long distance shots are harder to make because I cannot judge the bullet drop just yet. The U100 starting off was a real pain in the butt but it slowly grows on you if you stick with it. Counter knifing is awesome and it gives you a chance to turn the tables on your attacker if you get shanked from the front. Finally,the PDW.....HATED IT!! I feel that the PDW is way under powered. Burning through a whole clip just to kill one guy is a little ridiculous and it does not have very good range either. It is what I will call a Belly Gun. Charge up to your opponent, shove the gun into his belly, pull the trigger and hope you kill him before he kills you.
