Only in Battlefield....

Why the **** would you want to use a crossbow in a warzone when you can just use a gun? Crossbows are not used in the military for a reason.
User avatar #37 to #9 - opossum (10/18/2012) [-]
Because it's a video game! (Sarcasm) Why would we want to have fun anyways? I just wish we had to refuel our jeeps, all use the same guns based on our team, feed our characters, and we can't re spawn . That's why I play games anyways, not for fun.

As far as I know SOCOM SEALS use crossbows every so often.
User avatar #11 to #9 - kapitanokliosov (10/18/2012) [-]
They use bows and arrows in the Spanish military and they use crossbows and bows to kill people silently.
#18 to #11 - vemmi (10/18/2012) [-]
they would still never use it on a battlefield. if there does excist times with use of crossbow, it on some very special mission by special forces.
User avatar #155 to #18 - kapitanokliosov (10/19/2012) [-]
some snipers prefer them over rifles because the ammo is reusable
User avatar #163 to #155 - SaverofFj (10/20/2012) [-]
I'd rather some with a nice L118A watching my back than some guy with a longbow. And I'm sure the rest of the Army would too.

I could care less about Battlefield being realistic. It's all about fun imo. Players would go play ARMA games if they want their play style to be realistic as possible. I think adding a Crossbow in this game wouldn't hurt it a little bit. unless it's too OP and everybody will eventually whine about it for weeks. -- oh you know what? **** the crossbow. I want to play Battlefield in a post-earthquake map. That's this DLC's main point.
User avatar #146 to #144 - floopdawhoop ONLINE (10/19/2012) [-]
To be fair, China is outfitting some of its police force with crossbows. They're using the logic that an arrow won't set off any bombs in a terrorist-related thing or something...
User avatar #69 - kwizzy (10/19/2012) [-]
I too saw this on Facebook, and i'll be honest.. I ******* hate DICE lately. It's a cool idea, but I know exactly what is going to happen.

INB4 DICE overpowers it
INB4 Community Complains
INB4 patch that nerfs it
INB4 new weapon is obsolete

I hate the player owned server ****

Before player owned servers I never once got disconnected, but now I'll get dc'd at least once every 10 or so rounds.

Are people really complaining Battlefield is no longer realistic? Yes, because a game where you can revive people with a defibrillator that got SHOT, run over, and BLOWN UP and a game that does as much research for their gun as going on Wikipedia had me really convinced on the realism.

Also, those trying to defend it by saying that some soldiers still use crossbows, stop acting like it isn't in there because it's super ******* cool. Also, just mention that most police and military forces of all ranks and departments use crossbows in China (I had the pleasure of seeing a police officer armed with one there), it's always a winner.

My only complaint is that they're not implementing more bad ass things as well, I'd love to use a sawn-off coach gun, lupara, or a shovel to use instead of the stupid "Premium" knife they give me. If this game wanted to be realistic, it would have stopped halfway through making the game. It's for Hollywood effect, so let's give it more of that jazz.
#85 to #82 - jbchockey (10/19/2012) [-]
dude can I have that gun I agree with you there on your opinion but I want to know what in the **** that gun is
#93 to #85 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
It's the Cold Defender Mk. II I think. It never went into full production because it's an over/under shotgun with eight ******* barrels. It was super easy to use but it was complicated as hell to make. It was supposed to be given to South Vietnamese soldiers as a guerrilla warfare weapon.
#96 to #93 - jbchockey (10/19/2012) [-]
That 			****		 was made for the South Vietnamese my reaction

#100 to #96 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
They would've actually made some for the US (including law enforcement) if congress didn't see it as unholy hell that way too complicated and expensive to make. Please remember these are the same guys that looked at the space-age and expensive as **** M16 Rifle and loved it:
"This is a good investment."

When I went through Nepal I actually saw one hanging on the wall of a bar. A few hundred of them are dispersed across Southeast Asia. Go looking!
#103 to #100 - jbchockey (10/19/2012) [-]
Well the M16 didnt end up so bad after much improving
#109 to #103 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
Exactly my point. Imagine the kinds of improvements if they had stuck with it. It'd have been amazing. I love the Colt line of M16-variants and descendants and I know if they had put their money to it - everyone would own a Defender because holy **** it's amazing.
#110 to #109 - jbchockey (10/19/2012) [-]
It probably would have been illegal for civilians to own one or it would have been very restricting
#116 to #110 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
I'd be the most law-abiding guy on Earth if it meant shooting a Colt Defender.
#143 to #100 - youxbarstard (10/19/2012) [-]
How the hell do you load that beast? o.0
User avatar #151 to #143 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
Break-Action, you unlock a lever which lets you pull the barrels down and load a few shells into each respective barrel, it's actually like loading any other break-action shotgun, except eight times.
#157 to #151 - youxbarstard (10/19/2012) [-]
Now that I look at it again it makes sense.
User avatar #147 to #82 - shitshitshit (10/19/2012) [-]
wa..what is that magnificent stallion of a weapon he is holding
User avatar #152 to #147 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
The Colt Defender Mk. II. An eight-barreled, shorty, 20-gauge break-action shotgun. It was meant to operate as a "insurgency weapon," something powerful, small, and simple to maintain and operate. It was made for use of special forces, but ended up being given to South Vietnamese soldiers and rebels to fight against the damned COMMIES. They discontinued the operation because of the price of manufacturing.
#86 to #82 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
Don't forget a knife through the throat!

Far as your other stuff goes, I feel the same way, the ACB-90 looks like some weird ass box cutter, not a combat knife. Hell, give me a ******* hatchet, or better yet an E-Toll to bash some guys head in. Another thing I think would be awesome is if they implemented a 'gore effect' where if you shoot somebody in the head with a bloody .308 Lapua round, that ******* dome is gonna be in pieces.
#98 to #86 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
Hell yeah, they tried to mix realism with action but all that happens is action separated by insurmountable ******** . I also think before they go adding guns that make no logical sense or weapons that never passed prototypes, they should add the more classic guns.

AKM or an AKMS (or the AK-103),
FN FAL, literally any ******* variant will do.
HK21.
PKM. You're telling me they'll put the M16A3 and A4 in the same game but not the PKM and PKP Pecheneg?
And way more revolvers and carbines!
#104 to #98 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
Well they do have the Pecheneg, and Carbines are limited to the Engineer class, but I get what you mean. I ******* hate the MP412 REX but I love the .44 Magnum, although I think it'd be funny if they implemented something like a .44 Contender breach loading sidearm. Another one I'd like to see is the Winchester 45-70 lever action. Because **** , what US and Russian force still uses the L96? They should scrap that P.O.S. and replace it with the Remington Model 700 like they had in CoD4, which is still in use by Marine Snipers today.
#115 to #104 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
Precisely. The Remington 700 would be fun as hell to shoot in that game. They also have a few very local guns that aren't used outside of one or two particular nations. So they should start implementing weapons from other countries.

Brazil has the ParaFal, MD-97LC, MD-97L
Israel has the Galils
South Africa has the R4 and R5 and a few space-age type guns.

One more thing that'd make the game fun as hell is anti-materiel rifles and more powerful grenade launchers for the Sniper class and Medic class, respectively. The engineers and support get these powerful countermeasures against vehicles, basically leveling the playing between the two parties. But the Medic and the Scout for the most part have to cower away while heavy vehicles or aerial vehicles move around, they too should have some bite.
#119 to #115 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
Indeed, I'd very much like to see a .50 on the field, but I think it should be a stationary weapon if you get what I mean. No running around Rambo style like they do in CoD, because honestly, there ain't no way in hell somebody is gonna jump in the air, spin around and shoot somebody from the hip with a god damn .50, hence why it should be stationary, or at least in the realm of 'gadgets' that the Recon Class has. You can lug the ****** up a mountain and set it up, no running around with it in your hands though. If they did allow you to carry it, well you're gonna be running pretty ******* slow brother.
#122 to #119 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
Yeah, or they can just make it injure you if you try to fire it from the hip or standing up. But if that's the case, and it'll be used sparingly, they should include larger rounds.    
   
12.7mm and 14.5mm. I want something that makes an ass-sized orifice on the side of a tank.

User avatar #124 to #122 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
Yeah exactly, this **** where if you pop somebody in the chest from 300 yards with a .308 and they don't drop like a rock, is ******** .
User avatar #126 to #124 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
And then they give you this ******** about speed and the bullet dropping and what not. Horse manure. It isn't some small rifle caliber or pistol cartridge, it's a damn large rifle round that should drop them, damn it.
User avatar #128 to #126 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
See, bullet velocity and bullet drop I can understand, but c'mon, I know for a fact that a lot of the rifles they have in that game can work well over 750metres, not only that but 12x scopes? I call bull **** , there isn't a legitimate sniper in the world that uses something so miniscule, hell hunters use 40x, wtf DICE?
#132 to #128 - thegreatmateusbear (10/19/2012) [-]
I guess to get a little you have to give. At least we complain about small details instead of entire larger mechanics of the game, which would illustrate how crappy the game is. Alas, I must go. Nice talking to you, friend.
User avatar #133 to #132 - sonicg (10/19/2012) [-]
Quite true my friend, at least the fix the important **** first. Nonetheless, have a good'n mate, hope to see you on the Battlefield.

**** like that is why I play arma 2.
User avatar #19 to #15 - sonicg (10/18/2012) [-]
It's part of a DLC during the aftermath (hence the tile beng Aftermath) of an earthquake in Tehran. Do you honestly think it'd be easy for any military to just bring in a **** ton of supplies to scattered militants in a constantly hostile zone? I sure as hell don't. Hence the U.S. Marines motto 'Adapt and Overcome' as shown here by adapting to the environment and using unconventional weapons and tactics.
#20 to #19 - killyojoy (10/18/2012) [-]
Yea because you know cross bows that can cost hundreds of dollars are just laying all over a third world country.
#50 to #20 - Neodude (10/18/2012) [-]
Actually, from their blog post, they stated that it is supposed to look like it was pieced together with spare pieces from multiple sources, like wires, broken rifles, and even just scrap metal. Oh, and duct tape...lots of it.
User avatar #21 to #20 - sonicg (10/18/2012) [-]
Either way, you get my point. Hell, for all we know they could've raided a Sporting oods store (assuming there is one) and found some.
#22 to #21 - killyojoy (10/18/2012) [-]
I'm just saying I would rather pick up with of the 100s of Ak's laying around Theres plenty of ammo.
User avatar #23 to #22 - sonicg (10/18/2012) [-]
I hope they include the AK47 in this DLC, otherwise I'll be severely pissed.
User avatar #44 to #23 - combatplatypus (10/18/2012) [-]
The AK-74M is already a default weapon, what would the point be? It's practically the same gun.
#54 to #15 - failtolawl ONLINE (10/19/2012) [-]
I'm guessing you're getting arma 3 yea?

of course, since greece has some of the devs in prison, it's delayed.
#56 to #54 - killyojoy (10/19/2012) [-]
I know! I already know my ****** little lap top won't be able to handle it though so it gives me more time to get my money to buy my self a good gaming computer. It's hard when you are only 15.

Okay, Excuse me for saying, mostly going to get red thumbs,   
   
I've been playing BF3 for 3 days now, and all i hear over the Mics is people talking about Dinosaur mode   
   
Is this a joke or are DICE and EA actually considering a dinosaur survival mode?   
   
Because that 			****		 would be 			*******		 awesome
