Elaborating on Battlefield 3 weapons, unrealistic fears

By Peter Chubb - Aug 23, 2011

You know that the release of Battlefield 3 is close, as Razer is releasing a range of new products to compliment the upcoming game, which we have already covered. We have also discussed how you can customize weapons; so we thought that we would now elaborate on these weapons. However, there is a fear that some of these are not realistic enough, which could cause an issue for die-hard fans of these types of games.

For gamers who love those one hit kills with a sniper rifle, you will be disappointed, as it will not longer happen. However, in a way to keep you happy there will now be even more weapon recoil, which is what Demize99 explains on his Twitter account. For those of you who do not know, his real name is Alan Kertz.

He has discussed that the M16A3 and M16A4 will feature in BF3, but it is still not known how the two differ. There is no AK47 in the new game, but you will be pleased to know that the AK47M has made it. If you hope to be able to customize your pistol then forget it, as it is not available. However, in a way to compensate us for this EA offers a number of different pistols to choose from.

Some games do not react how they should when it comes to how bullets drop from different guns. We all know that they fall differently depending on the velocity, so we have to say that it is a nice touch that the developer has added this little yet important tweak.

While in some cases these tweaks will add to the realism of the game, we cannot say the same for no more one-hit wonders from a sniper rifle. We are no experts, but we know that all it takes to bring down a target is one shot from a sniper.

    Hardcore mode will have one shot kills to the body by the way……the core mode that everyone has seen from the aplha was normal mode.

    I dont know how much you play BF but one hit sniper kills ruin games and it takes no skill. When you have to get headshots to take someone down in one shot that adds skill level. In you want to talk realism, sniping takes skill in real life they go for kill shots i.e. headshots not leg, arm or stomach shots, and sadly not everyone is good at it only a small percentage.

      Yes but most snipers don’t go for headshots.  They go for the upper chest area.  That should give you a one shot if you hit them in the head or heart/chest area.

    No AK-47! What’s the deal with that? And I can’t believe you can’t put a silencer on your pistol!!! I guess you can’t have everything!!!!!!

  • Drop dead jack

    You should clarify this. No 1 shot kills to the body.

  • WTF Every game realistic or not has to have 1_Shot=1_Kill to the game. That’s the Sniper’s Code.

    Body Shots should at least depending on the Weapon should have “At Least” 50% chance of dying by a Sniper’s SNIPER.

  • There ARE 1-hit sniper kills, you have to hit them in the head… No one hit BODY kills.  Do your research.  Maybe you should go back to school.

  • who cares? it will still be a great game, and i buy this series for the gameplay
