    Just saw the trailer. Still optimistic about the Close Quarters pack. Infantry combat is a blast in BF3, just needs some solid maps behind it.

    They also pulled the "it takes months to compile the maps" card on the battlelog forums which is also bullshit.
    I don't think it's the time it takes to compile assets that's the problem with Frostbite. They did give a pretty nice description of how content is handled in the development tools in FB 1.5 (2 is probably quite similar), and it requires a lot of computing power for that alone. More than a bunch of modders would be willing to invest in in any real circumstance. The content pipeline itself being so intensive to run and manage does not bode well for the actual computational power required to compile the content.

    Same feeling for the Spas 12 being semi-auto. Too many games make it a pump.

    It sounded like a pump to me. I couldn't make out any shots of it where the guy wasn't ADS with it though. I'm probably wrong. I personally hope it is pump-action though because at the moment there's only a single pump-action shotgun in the game, and that's kind of lame because shotguns just don't feel the same without the whole *chk-chk* thing going on.

    Maybe it'll actually have a fire mode selection, like the real version of the gun.

    The video showed a pump action version of it.
    To be honest, we have too many semi/full auto shotguns, another pump action only shotgun would be nice.

    I'm watching some of my older beta gameplay videos... and to be honest, it looks like the game worked better in beta than it does now :/

    All versions are pump action. All versions are also semi-auto.

    BC2 had a pump action spas12.
    So

    Also, I think it would be nice to be able to avoid rockets like this

    On top of flares and ECM, so if you're getting lit up by 5-6 guys with AA missiles you could still possibly get away.

    I remember from a match ages ago, I was flying one of the attack helicopters and a rocket started looping around me just like in that video and it never actually got me either because it fizzled out. They've probably patched it by now anyway.

    I really despise spawn campers of any sort so i get revenge tenfold.

    Rush kharg island 8 v 8 150 tickets. both teams started of pretty even in terms of skill / rank and it was a fairly good match, untill we took the 2nd set of mcoms then all of a sudden it was me and 7 below 30's verses 8 colonels +. As per fucking usual it ended up with my team being spawn camped unable to get out of the petrol station.

    Their jet was the main cause of this as he was obliterating our tank / amtrac as they spawned, to cut this part short, the enemy team ended up inside our spawn fucking about and stealing our tank and i could not counter everything on my own.

    at this point it went down to 6 v 8, while i was causing them a load of problems it was utterly pointless.

    I did try and take out their jet and while i'm not a bad pilot, this guy was one of these people that lives in the sky. Throughout the game this ass was bosting his ego by taking down our jet and helicopter near enough the second they took off.

    I will cut this short. with about 20 tickets to go my team finnaly got some high ranked players to counter the bull shit.

    one of them lured their jet over the boat AA where i was waiting to rip him a new one, which i did.

    I then got in the heli, flew over to their base and just spawn camped his ass all the way to victory. Or rather till a team mate spawned on me an stole the jet, i then went and fucked their entire team with the heli for the remainder of the game allowing us to win.

    I don't like doing this, but if im on the receiving end of it and the tables turn, i will happily return the favour.

    The Spas 12 is typically fired in semi-automatic, the pump action is for LTL rounds that don't have as much propellent and so can't be automatically cycled as easily.

    Edited:

    In any case it'd be cool to get both.

    Edited:

    watched it again, if that's pump that's a fast ass pump

    I remember reading that the "Spas 12 is always a pump action" thing we see is because of how the weapon is fired in films. Using shells with less propellant than a normal load to make them safer, but this causes the (gas fed?) mechanism inside to not function fully. Leading to the pump to get the next shell loaded.

    The maps actually look quite good themselves from an aesthetic point. And the destruction has been scaled up quite nicely with the smaller maps. But I don't think they'd be as fun as a larger map once you get anywhere around 16+ players, it'd get a bit spawn-die-spawn-die.

    For the SPAS-12, the Buckshot and Flechette shells should be semi-auto, while the Slugs and Frags are pump.

    I could kinda see that being fair. You give up some fire rate for a better accuracy, range and damage combo. or give up some fire rate for better crowd control, higher damage and explosive damage.

    No you'd give up damage for effect.

    Seriously, a dragon's breath shotgun round wouldn't do shit to an armored soldier unless you hit exposed skin.
