Yeah, he didn't even see that guy moving until he happened to fall behind him. I can see a camping issue where people are just chilling next to a DOM point with that and picking off players who can't see. This game seems to have very powerful "perk" like elements.
If you start adding extras like that you take away from gun v gun and you end up with abuse. Think back to Commando Pro and the crazy knifing distance you got out of it. Danger Close and the massively powerful bast radius that accompanied. These types of elements are abused because of their strength and they don't require skill to use or avoid.
I saw that you will get a titan automatically every few minutes. No need to do anything. They don't seem concerned that that is just going to create a giant mess. I loved COD4 and MW2, but I'm going to skip this. Hopefully, all the bandwagon kids will go to Titanfall and we can get back to really playing COD.
By the way, did anybody sign up for the Warface beta? I did, but I really don't know anything about the game.
