No sniping rule for BF4.

What do you guys think of having a no sniping rule for the server while playing TDM?

There are a couple of plugins that are made for bigbrotherbot to use on BF3 that may work on BF4 that I can try. The way it works is if someone is using a restricted weapon and they kill someone, it kills them plus warns them that they are using a restricted weapon.

I won't use this unless you all think it is a good idea.

My thoughts lean both ways, A large amount of players are using them for the obvious damage they inflict! When it seems to be a issue (For Myself) is trying to or sometimes taking a step after spawning, realizing that some players but not all are finding spawn points to point the Scope directly on ,and with a 100 percent damage ,well good luck getting to cover. I like using the sniper rifle when I need a change or when on larger maps, so maybe taking them out of the equation on tdm ,(Small maps)is a good idea until a permanent answer can be found. I don't think spawn protection is a answer unless it involves you shooting a spawning player and you die with a warning to not be a spawn killer. Spawn protection gives a invulnerability 2to3 sec to a player spawning in and becomes a problem itself. Maybe a scrolling message like we had in other games asking players to refrain from spawn killing when possible. I think if we stop as much of the spawn kills as we can ,it doesn't make sniper rifles a large issue ,Just my thoughts on it. I also realize its a difficult task to stop this from happening.

sniping is a part of the game but as we all know that a most tdm maps are small and spawn killing is a issue for theses maps . it just takes the fun out of it. if that what it takes to make it fair then i,m in for the plugin.

I don't have a problem at all with restricting TDM to no snipers. The way my game has been glitching I can honestly say that I between that and the spawn sniping it just took the fun right out of it Sad but with that being said after I get this moving to another house out of the way I'm going to build my new PC. Then that will be a game changer for me. But taking sniper weapons out of TDM , I won't miss them but on one map. But that's fine.

my feeling on the subject is that its not so much the sniper rifles as it is spawn killing.

I haven't gotten BF4 yet.but if its anything like BF3 TDM size maps i'd say set it up like we have it on the BF3 server. At least there some spawn protection.

I agree sandman, but it seems to be the snipers that are doing the majority of the spawn killing. If not for that I like to snipe myself from time to time. These guys just set out of sight and pick you off before you even know where you are. It's either remove the sniper weapons or start banning the heck out of people and I for one don't want to start swinging the ban hammer all the time.

I vote for the no sniping plugin. The game is no fun when you are running around by yourself and the other team are just camping back and popping you! Smile

I may set it up this weekend and we can try it and see if we like/dislike it or if it even works....lol

I'll lock the server down so it will be just us on there. Rose wilted
