I can barely stand it sometimes, that's why I snipe people a lot. If it wasn't so common, I would play BF2 more. It's also why I like 2142 a little better.
You mean going prone for accuracy as soon as you see the enemy? Can't say it's ever bothered me.
Yes, it's annoying sometimes, kinda because it wouldn't work in real life.
Ya no sh-- this aint the movies. Very annoying. Needs to be patched as does hopping. Ya 25% health loss for consecutive hops and prone diving for each one. Sounds good. And 200 foot visibility on planes sux too. I think with our technology we could lock on at quite some distance. Just condoning the jet whores it does.
haha! health lose for consecutive prone drops? that would really suck sometimes especially if you are a sniper. you shoot, go prone, pop up and shoot someone else and they can never find you.
also, i have never had a prob with prone divers. they go prone and you load their head up. you dont even have to go prone. crouching is way better. b/c the guns are crazy accurate at range when you control the bursts or use single fire, it is actually easier to kill them when they are prone b/c their head is the only target you can hit
Prone whoring wouldnt be so bad if BF2 didnt have the bug that made people invulnerable for a brief period of time while doing it. proners are what made me stick to 2142 for the most part. Going prone in that game tends to just get you head shot. as it should be.
I didn't make it!
what is realy messed is that sniper has prone-accuracy scoped while standing, unlike other kits :(

yeah but thats traded off by having real slow rate of fire and no armor. If the sniper hits anything but a headshot, he will most likely die by return fire from a dive proning enemy.
