    they were saying that your accuracy goes to shit for a second or so when you go prone, hopefully thats DICEs way of balancing it out

    as for knifing, at the E3 show they were saying, quick knife like it is in BC2 takes 2 hits/slashes to kill. or you can equip the knife and get your one hit kill

    I really hope so, prone seems to have changed the game completely from the videos I've seen. That was expected though.

    That's not entirely accurate but it's close-ish.

    so is it still a quick knife button which isnt a one hit kill and option to equip knife which is one hit kill ?

    With this stat tracking thing, is it over all BF games, or is it just for BF3? On the blog it said "over your BF career". Would be pretty interesting to see my BF1943, BC2 and BF3 stats all merged together.

    No, it never has been, but it's close enough to convey the basic design. You'll see soon enough :)

    Maybe you tap the knife button to slash, hold it to stab (one hit kill)?

    I didnt do anything tbh, i have an EA account and I cant remember exactly what the email said but it went along the lines of .. you have been to chosen because of your dedication to the series etc etc.

    And like shambles says i have probably clocked in a stupid amount of time playing over the entire series.
    I played the original Battlefield 1942 back in 2002 and all its expansions .. all the way up to BFBC2 now, so thats almost 10 years of playing BF games. (yes im old lol)

    @fletch:
    I know Derbs can't get too specific, but I reckon they're both one hit kills only by doing the proper stabbing (with the animation) you get the tags, but it takes longer...The regular stab just gives you the 100 points but is quicker...

    That's fair enough then :). I think it was BF2 and 2142 before I started properly. Only ever used offline play with 1942 as my PC would chug a bit too much online.

    I really hope it isn't one hit kill for the reflex stab, one hit kill melee is really lame. Shooting me in the face with a light machine gun? I don't care! I'm gonna stab you so hard in the shoulder with a small knife that you'll instantly die!

    I've always thought that a 1 hit kill with a knife should only be possible with a backstab (ala the spy in team fortress 2). The face to face knife swiping always seemed a bit riduculous to me :)

    That and people stepping out from behind indestructable objects directly into suppressing fire (.50cal machine gun) and successfully firing an RPG at my tank.

    To be fair in bfbc2 it's not like CoD with the stabbing...in CoD you can run by and casually slash them...In bfbc2 you have to stay on target and even then it doesn't always register...

    So, on the console versions, is the button for capturing MCOMs going to be different to, say, the button for picking up gear that is inevitably strewn all around MCOMs?

    No matter how many times I've been advised to "Hold it down on the approach", this doesn't stop the inevitable collection of unwanted gear instead of arm/disarm-ing the objectives.

    I read that it's linked to your battlefield veteran status, I think it may have been on VG247

    Indeed, it'll be interesting to see how the suppression feature affects that kind of situation.

    Apparently (according to Fletch's quoted post), it is now on the right stick...


    edit- removed my "indeed" because it made it look like I was copying Brett

    I doubt it's console footage. I think unless they specifically say it is, then its safe to assume it is PC footage

    I'm liking how colourful things are looking. Sound is great too, of course.

    Definitely PC footage. Doesn't look like max settings though.
