    So i decided to sit back and try sniping for a while. However now I've discovered my sniper rifles won't zero. They're just stuck at 60m.
    Yet another nail in the coffin for this piece of... never mind. I'm still raging after utterly destroying my kd average.

    I struggle to see people too but it has gotten better after fiddling with my settings and turning off the filters. From what I gather DICE are looking to address visibility so there's some hope.

    With the zeroing issue have you unlocked the specialism for zeroing? I have on some and can't seem to get it to work so was interested whether it was the same for you?

    Thanks Elliot, but are you suggesting that the ability to zero scopes in sniper class is now a specialisation I have to unlock?

    I believe that the reason people can't see enemies in this game is not the game's fault or DICE's fault. It's the "fault" of better graphics.

    I was watching a game clip that a friend recorded today of BF4 - a game released on this generation of consoles. Compared to BFV, BF4 looked like it was created on Microsoft Paint; the lack of textures and foliage was so noticeable. The landscape looked smooth, empty and fake. BFV looks amazing compared to BF4, but those textures and foliage hide enemies well, too.

    It's kind of like how people on minimum spec PCs had an advantage over high-end rigs on PUBG, because their cheaper computers were not populating bushes and grass at distance, so it was easier to see enemies moving that were far away.

    I'm curious to know if those who are having trouble are playing on 4K monitors/TVs. I have a 4K monitor and an X1X, and there was a German enemy laying on the ground 20 feet in front of me on Devastation last night. I couldn't see him; he blended in with the ground perfectly. Am I salty over this? No! It's realistic! Enemies don't need to glow!

    So for everyone upset about "invisible" enemies, I think it's only going to get harder to see enemies as graphics get better. They invented camouflage for a reason.

    Stay low, and stop running around in the open without your squad.

    After the X Enhanced patch on BF1 that improved the graphics, enemies were still pretty easy to discern. And BFV and the enhanced BF1 version is on par, graphics-wise, so why the visibility disparity between the two games if they are both graphically up to par?

    I think it's been that way since launch for the bolt actions? But, yes, I've just double checked and all of the BA rifles need to have the specialism unlocked for zeroing. Here's the Kar98k tree for an example:

    I played quite a bit of enhanced BF1, but my impression was that the BFV graphics are noticeably better. I’ll go back, and check BF1 again, just to be sure.

    Check out the rocks on Hamada, and compare them to a rocky map on BF1 like the cliffs of Empire’s Edge or the outside of Fort de Vaux. I think you’ll see a considerable improvement in BFV. I’ll be back. I’m literally going to go count rocks!

    I think the visibility is the biggest difference from BF1 to BFV, but it's made more difficult to cope with at first because of how lethal everything is and the faster pace of V.

    You just have to realize the visibility works the same for everyone, and you can use it to your advantage as well. In short, if you are moving or shooting, you make yourself visible. If you are sitting still in shadows/vegetation, you are invisible unless a dutiful recon is scanning with his spotting scope (which I feel like is not as common as it probably should be).
