Exclamation Beta: You can no longer "lie prone" ?!

I just realized this today... apparently you can't "lie prone" or crawl anymore in the SWBF2 beta.

Or am I just missing something?

I don't know if this means it won't be in the full version... some people here were calling it "useless" (in SWBF1), but it would be a shame. It kind of added that little extra bit of realism, even if it wasn't used much (sort of like the cockpit views!). You can still crouch, but that's just not as cool!

I never used it to be honest,
But still theres no good reason to take it out, i'm sure loads of other people used it.
It might be just be in the beta.

"Useless", not at all. I have gotten to many places others have only dreamed of being, through a compination of gernade jumping and crawling. Gernade jumping opens up a whole new world of places (not inside walls) you can get to and an entire new type of tactics, which I'm just starting to learn... Crawling lets you say on slopes you can't walk on, and lets you get to those places above the 'no fly zone' of the jet trooper. Who ever though crawing gets you higher than flying? If they take it out, it may be because somehow, the way they coded crawling, it bypasses some of their impassible map 'textures' .

Hmm, didn't realize you could "grenade jump" in either game... I guess I just assumed it was a glitch! My mistake.

Perhaps the crawling thing might explain why they removed it, to limit players and prevent them from "exploiting" hard to reach places or getting inside walls like that. Another cheap solution to a problem (like deleting maps that had glitches instead of fixing them).

Hopefully they'll work those issues out and include it again in the full version!

I too hope going prone is still in the game, if something is considered "useless" then maybe they should try making it useful. Instead of just solving the problem quickly by removing it from the game entirely.


Not being paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't trying to kill you... or does it?

I found it dead useful to blast away baddies through tight openings on the floor. Shame, shame.

^^The number #1 reason they should keep it in the game.

Maybe its just not in the beta. The beta doesn't have dying animations, so mabe they didn't have time to draw the prone animations too. Just think of going prone with no animations... You would be invisible.

The prone thing is realy missing for me. I like to be a sniper and prone in a high platform, but when I do it with "docking" I'm an easier target.
