    I watched his BF4 throwback video the other day and thought it was the perfect counterpoint to those who say that BF1 is all about hip fire and cheap kills. This video is filled with hip fire and rocket kills in a game that is as pure as the driven snow to some elitists. I wonder if he can see the irony that he is doing all the things in BF4 that he complains about in BF1.


    Well, anything for the views.

    To me, it is quite disgusting, to be honest.

    LoL I am still surprised how much of a *thing* hipfire is in BF... I rarely hipfire, always ADSing, a lot of the time to my detriment. Even weapons with poor hipfire stats mow you down quicker than you can aim down sights & shoot, Lewis gun being a typical example. Guys carrying that thing never even seem to stop running let alone aim!
    It kind of undermines the elitist crowd moaning about "casual" or "cod" players when you can't really get more arcade than somewhere near the crosshairs hipfire !
    Same with follow up shots with pistols, hardly ever see the guy aim. Pow pow from the hip.
    Call of Duty Ghosts, quickdraw, stalker & ready up, banging ADS setup, shame only 2k people now play it... If WW2 has the same perk system I am going to have to clone myself...

    I learned to play BF ADS only and I lost a lot of gunfights in CQC until I learned to Hipfire. Now I use both methods in gunfights, sometimes switching mid fight and they are both valid ways to engage enemies. If I gave up one or the other it would drastically hurt my game play.

    I'm not going to watch it, it's just a click bait title so he gets the views. Remember when BF1 first came out he was saying about how the weapon variants work better in BATTLEFIELD 1 than the BATTLEFIELD 4 weapon attachment system because people didn't understand what attachments to put on their guns and ended up making them worse because we couldn't be trusted in knowing what to put on our own guns. Now BATTLEFIELD 1 is casual because there aren't multiple handgrips. Just one of his many inconsistent statements about the game.

    Why shouldn't youtubers complain? This game is an embarrassment to the BF series..

    Hipfire in BF1 is now an actually tactic IMHO. It's not "abused" because it works with certain weapons in certain situations only. Put yourself in the right situation for any weapon and it beats the others. Hipfire is just another tool in the nicely bulging BF1 bag.

    Because most (not all) of their complaints are an embarrassment to the community. 80% of what they cry about could be solved with a nice big ol' can of git gud.

    Most if not all are legit complaints, there is plenty of room for improvement.

    And some words of wisdom to go along with it:

    Part of the problem with the Youtubers is that the largest ones out there speak for the smallest portion of the game's population. They view everything as a PC gamer and their criticisms fall in line with those of the average PC gamer with a chip on their shoulder. If I were a PC gamer that enjoyed playing BF1 I would be pissed at the hysteria the big youtubers stir that makes that player base flee the game. Its the same thing they did to Hardline.

    There are 2 kinds of git gud scrub on the market, they can choose to their liking.

    They can use a watered down version.

    Believe me it does **** me off quite a bit. There was a discussion about this on the CTE subreddit. I posted this video of hipfiring in bf4. I really hate the revisionism and selective memory youtubers have and the **** they pass onto their idiot drones.
