    They haven't announced the date yet for the hotfix.. the tweet on the last page says within 'the next few days'.

    So can someone tell me exactly the ways to get spotted on the minimap after this hotfix? If am 3D spotted am also spotted on minimap?
    How long is 3D spotting and does it disappear completely if I get behind cover? Thanks

    Lol
    We have a few of them. Don't be surprised if one day you see one arguing FOR the flat earth theory.

    Good thing in this thread though it's almost unanimous. Feels like 95% support immediate removal of this annoying feature.

    In your heart you know it's flat.

    Saw it too on Battlefield Bulletin I think. Not sure if that is the hotfix or something else.

    I know I’m definitely in the minority, but I think there has to be some semblance of spotting in a game like this where enemy visibility is almost nonexistent.

    This must explain how everyone always seems to know exactly where i am without any due reason.

    I just thought everyone was ESPing, because everyone cheats, like literally everyone, you kill me, you are aimbotting.

    As much as I hate campers, I'm so relieved this will be removed.

    That's one source of frustration fixed.

    Now. For the other 1000?...

    A downloadable update or a UI update?

    Basically, Recons

    Any damage they do to you, you're 2d spotted, flares and binos, 3d spotted, and everyone else, 3d spot when they get you on 100% suppression
    So it "may" get fixed now? I don't get the point of removing spotting and then sneaking a mechanic in that auto spots. Seems very counter productive. Typical lol.

    This bug/feature was dumb for sure, but anyone think that spotting via other means were not working properly (suppression ect).

    Since the update I have noticed much more 3d spotting then before

    I think one reason is the VGO

    it suppresses soooo fast...

    Fix is confirmed coming on Tuesday. So less than 48 hours. We won't have to suffer through death spotting during the holidays.

    So players think this is what is getting them killed, LOL, like those streams of tracers they're hosing around aren't a tip-off for the other team, or maybe they think nobody is using chat to let their squad know what just happened. "Completely destroys gameplay"--man, what a bunch of drama queens. Have they already forgotten that in previous games just firing put them on the minimap without even getting a kill?

    And you forgot about the existence of surpressors in bf3 and bf4 and the complete removal of firing exposing you on the mini map in bf1.

    And yea... on console you know how often randoms chat with each other? Like never. So odds are you didnt kill a guy who was in a communicating squad and if you killed a guy in cqb with good accuracy there won't be tracer rounds for others to really see. Yes they will hear the gun fire and see the dead body of their teammate but they are more likely to attempt a revive on that person then to look for you.

    This is a legitimate complaint and honestly only helps noobs get kills on good players who would otherwise be tearing up their back line.

    He's just trying to come off as a BA. Obviously he didn't bother reading this whole thread because there were several legitimate reasons why it needs to be removed beyond camping and the "durr durr durr, that's not really why you are dying" nonsense was brought up on page one.

    It's the hyperbole that gets me--It destroys the game!--well no, it doesn't, it's just another annoyance for some players and apparently they're going to change it anyway. And actually I don't like it and legitimate reasons are not interchangeable terms especially when so many of you ignore every point you disagree with. None of you knows why this is in the game, whether it's a bug or they put it in on purpose, and none of you knows how often you were spotted by a Recon's spotting scope or your own tracers etc., and those of you in games with players using VOIP don't know if the guy you killed dropped a dime on you, nor do you know how many players even keep an eye on the minimap (in some games it seems like my teammates ignore it totally). You're making assumptions based on your likes and dislikes and ignoring whatever doesn't support what you want to believe (like the spot doesn't follow you as you move). Your personal anecdotes are also no more meaningful than those which discount your claim, e.g. I sat in a stone tower on Hamada a few days ago and got eleven kills without moving, why didn't those eleven spots result in my death? At my age I'm not going to win many twitch-shooting fights, so there's nothing I like more than flanking the other team and taking some snipers tags, but this overblown display of paranoia mingled with arrogance is not something I'm going to join even though this mechanic presumably hurts my play style. Until it's gone I'll make a point of moving after every kill if possible, some of you will prefer to tear your hair and wail at the unfairness of it all, so be it.

    Because it's Hamada. You need a passport to travel across the bridge and I'm not doing it even if you kill me 5 times. Try and do that on any other map. And you're trying too hard to lessen the impact of this spotting bug/feature issue and highlight recon spotting and teammates making callouts which are both much much less prevalent (Not to mention the latter doesnt result in 2d minimap spotting).

    The minimap has been lighting up like a Christmas tree since this game released... and you're saying its recon spotting? Come on... There are so many contrarian carls on these forums if we surveyed here there would likely be more believers in flat earth here than there would be in the general population. You're saying people are ignoring points they disagree with. Not true. They ignore points that are illogical, that don't jive with reality.

    There is a problem. A spotting plague. There are giant threads on Reddit about it and this one.
