Is it my imagination, or has BFV become one giant flare festival? Sniper flares I can live with.... kinda. At least u can shoot them down. Everything else is a joke. It’s WW2, right?? But planes shoot flares 12,000 feet in the air like Baby Drones. Can’t shoot them down and they last like an hour. Tank shoots at u, you’re spotted. Doesn’t matter that it didn’t even hit you. Sniper nicks u, spotted, even if u heal yourself. Pull a nice flank, never mind, the flares will give it away. Not sure if it was designed to stop the campers, but in my opinion, it’s negatively hurting players playing objectives. Really ruining what fun was left in the game.

    Plane flares can be destroyed

    I guess altitude doesn't help to shoot them down

    Honestly they should just scap Breakthrough, most objectives are borderline impossible to defend anyway with the BS 360 degree flanks, now the whole battlefield can be lit up by a single aircraft batch dropping flares all over the place, at high altitude, with a huge spotting radius.

    I always preferred the spotting a player manually. You've seen them, you've spotted them. It's been part of the game forever. It was pretty much accepted as part of the title

    This.

    In another thread someone suggested getting rid of all spotting except the recon flare and scope. No more plane flares, sniper and mmg role spotting, tank spotting or any others I've missed. I wouldn't mind seeing that.

    Youve just exposed yourself to the "i cant see therefore we all need flares and ez spotting" crowd. Good luck lol

    Tried to play again lasted 10 min spotted the whole time and spent it shooting down flares. Back to #4 hardcore for me.

    Flares = plausible deniability.

    They need to remove the minimap spotting

    Fixes the problem while not having anything massive to tweak
