    Little tank looks hilarious

    The animations for getting in are a nice touch.

    Not sure if this TTK is slow or fast. Slower RPMs on the weapons of course, but enemies seem to drop quick.

    The grenade throw speed seems is insane fast.

    I think the SMG Max damage is 21 which seems reasonable
    Not sure on the bolt actions, I saw one hit for 60 another one hit for 80 (body shot)

    The "semi-autos" appear to be 18-21 bullet weapons that shoot like DMRs. So the medic will be the DMR class I think. Looks like 28 max dmg on it -- 4 bullet kill.

    The friendly class icons are interesting. It's a definite "noob helper" but it will encourage teamwork.

    TTK seems reasonable. It's fast but probably not too fast to make it arcadey.

    Destruction looks epic! Scoreboard hasn't changed much which is a bit disappointing. Still has K/D and doesn't show flag caps.

    EDIT: one awesome change, I saw a guy get 650 points for capping a flag. Kills are still 100 points (plus headshot bonuses)

    Also, Snoop dog is shit at Battlefield.

    New comma rose has multiple levels, might take longer to call for ammo?

    Might have been a semi-auto. What point at the video is it?

    Edit: this might just be the same footage, but check the car explosion at 1:14. Michael Bay to the next level!

    its where the sniper is shooting out the window - he reloads like a 5 round mag then proceeds to pump out round after round. I'm at work so trying to sneak watching it again = bad juju :) but its definitely there. I also didn't see much in the way of bolt actions (which I love). I did see a snippet of bayonetting a Landser in the back...mmmmm :twisted:

    Yeah that's a semi-auto I think. It has a bolt that is pulled back when it is loaded with clips of 5 bullets. That's the medic's primary weapon.

    They do somewhere around 28 max damage body shots, going off the video. Fires at a rate of about 4 bullets a second.

    Tanks are feared again! But every class has an anti-tank capability (grenade). So the big grenades are slow throwing and the normal ones are super fast.

    Many more hit zones on tanks, so hitting the treads does more damage etc.

    His concerns, weapons are a bit rock/paper/scissors. So SMGs dominate in close, then go to shit (random first bullet spread) at range. Only having semi-autos mean medics are pretty weak in close quarters.

    It looks promising but it would have been nice to capture footage from one player for a match. Whoever was in control of the spectator camera had an uncanny knack of moving away from a fight that was just getting interesting onto a player that was doing sod all.

    This video shows the "high vault". You can get over high walls now. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing...

    I'm slightly worried about balance for infantry gameplay (will every close quarters section of a map be dominated by LMG/SMG?), but the armor gameplay looks insanely fun.

    A lot of people are complaining about the female voice in the game. Hopefully it's a placeholder -- the real voice should be a pissed off German/Brit/Scott who is yelling at troops! "You bloody bastards get to the flag!"

    there - the MP gameplay video has bolt action rifles on semi auto with not a lot of recoil. WTF? That'll be the same type I saw earlier (with the sniper). Damn...its just basically a reskinned BF - most of the weapons are automatic or semi auto (with a high ROF). The tanks seem to move at 2000 times what the RL versions did.

    *sigh* what am I complaining about? this is EA's Battlefield. Sign me up! :)

    There are semi-auto weapons that have a bolt that is used to reload clips. Unfortunately, the real "bolt action" rifles are sniper only.

    Sniping looks fun in this game though, check the below. He also has some kind of flare gun? Or is it tear gas? Not sure. Charging is hilarious with the yell AAAAARRRRRGHH.

    LOVE the request to revive. As a medic, you see who wants to be revived. As a downed player, you don't want to be revived by someone who's going to give you 20 health while half a dozen enemy have their guns trained on you.
