I'd like to have this feature too. I mean, cheating isn't the ONLY thing you can use it for. It'd be nice if servers could just switch the 3rd person option off so we could still use it in single player. So far after fishing through all the files and archives I can't find any option to turn it on like in the older BF engines.

how can u find it hard ... using 3rd person on infantry in Retail is actually hacking. Because you can look around corners and stuff. You can be banned for it

When it comes to planes and vehicles you don't have to stay in first person view. Use the Cycle Camera key and you get a few different 3rd person perspectives. You just cannot Cycle Camera views when you are a ground pounder(infantry) is all. Hope that helps, OneTinSoldier P.S. [77]Twisted, I don't think _XYZ_ was concerned with having to stay in first person as infantry, just "planes and stuff".

You can already do it in jets, choppers, tanks, any vehicle in fact!

Once the SDK is released... it will be quite possible and easy enough i imagine... because if it can be done via boat/tank etc then it can be done via your man if modded...
