Funny thing.
 
have you noticed When you zoom in on enemy with a snper rifle and you shoot and miss that enemy will run a few feet and stop and wait? At that point i shoot him in the head. Have you seen this?

Niner_777 05-12-2006 04:42 PM

Yeah, I've seen it. Of course, I hardly ever miss the first time. lol After all, with my superior sniping skills and what not. *polishes fingernails on shirt*

i never was a sniper since then

hehehehe yep, must agree with Niner. But i guess it's because of another code in the endlessly flawed AI. but it helps, so no complaints from here:)

Niner_777 05-13-2006 09:10 AM

Actually, I believe that I've missed twice before, and they've done the same thing twice. That's only when I'm very distracted of course. *brushes hair out of eyes* lol

Oh yeah, the award rifle is really bad IMO. If I get it, I just switch to another class.

McCusto 05-13-2006 07:24 PM

Yeah, it is pretty weird. It is basically a free kill, lol.

Why is it that so many people here have Republic Commando Avatars and Sigs but no-one posts on the Republic Commando board? kuang zhe de.

Niner_777 05-14-2006 12:19 PM

Republic Commandos are just cool. Besides, I try to post on the RC board, but nobody has posted there much so I'm afraid I'll get criticized for posting in "dead" threads.

taclled 05-14-2006 01:03 PM

Well frankly the RC game didnt exactly live ong it was like a fire works rocket
Light Shoot explode OOH AAHHH darkness.

Mercury Noodles 05-14-2006 02:11 PM

Yeah, the AI needs a good amount of work, still. They should at least duck and maybe start searching for the source of the fire by sweeping their weapon across the battlefield. At least, we'd have a little eye candy that way. It'd be even better if they tried to seek out the sniper. Maybe they could sneak around behind you, or something. Better yet, it'd be cool to have them call on one of their snipers for support, and have them shoot you.

They do duck....If you consider RCs shootin their legs out from under them, ducking lol

Mercury Noodles 05-14-2006 02:44 PM

Are we even talking about the same game here? I didn't mention anything about Republic Commando. O_o Well, if they do duck, I don't notice it. I get too caught up in mowing everyone down in SP. :p

MachineCult 05-14-2006 04:25 PM

Get on topic everyone, this is about Battlefront snipers and snipees.

Niner_777 05-14-2006 05:35 PM

Sorry for getting off topic. I was just responding to MachineCult's statement about the RC board.

06protoguy 05-14-2006 08:08 PM

And another flaw in the AI ive noticed is when for example your on genosis The AT-TE is walking along and its being blasted from all sides by droids and im far away with my sniper rifle and i shoot itm, the gunner on top of it will turn its attention from all the guys throwin gernades and shootin at it and look straight at me and try to kill me.

PoiuyWired 05-15-2006 02:38 AM

Well, for some reason its EVERYONE SHOOT AT THE PLAYER AI, but with the dumb AI of BF2, the game would be boring otherwise.

This isn't a chat thread, please get back on topic Y'alls.

Niner_777 05-16-2006 04:19 PM

Right, on topic. I've heard that the AI will most always choose to shoot at the player rather than the enemy AI even if you are in concealment, shrubs for example. I believe that this is because of some programming issue. The reason that the enemy moves and then stops after being shot at with a sniper rifle is probably a programming error.

Thats why Droidekas are impossible to use.

ParanoidAndroid 05-21-2006 08:19 PM

Yeah, the AI definetly has a grudge against the player it seems. I've had a whole tank turn around and start blasting at my hiding spot, when I was just a usless half dead sniper, completely ignoring my dozens of allies who were right in the open. Just a tad unrealistic in my opinion.

And I've seen the sniping thing too occasionally, at other times they go spastic and start rolling and straffing in completely random directions.

i guess thats pretty clever of them though, as it makes for a harder kill
