Battlefield 4 Classes: Recon

by Seth King on July 12, 2013


Battlefield 4 Shanghai Multiplayer Sniper

So as everyone probably already guesses, the most anticipated next gen console game, is going to have some big changes! I’m going to give you a quick run down of the class changes revealed by Dice so far in their E3 footage. Today we’ll start with the recon class in Battlefield 4. This class is going back to it’s roots, and improving on them!

Recon players will now have the ability to zero out their rifle for those killer long distance headshots. On top of that they’ll also have a range finder to get an exact distance on the enemy!

Now that a recon player can pick you across the map why not let him zoom in his scope so he can see your eyes when he takes the shot? Well that’s what Dice wants, so they added an adjustable scope to the game along with a 20x scope!

 Recon players will now have the ability to zero out their rifle for those killer long distance headshots.

People unfamiliar with Battlefield Bad Company 2 will be a bit agitated about the sensor ball being reinstated (looks like the MAV may be gone?).

You say you want to be able to take out that tank sitting in “C”?  Recon players will now have the ability to zero out their rifle for those killer long distance headshots, while your team of medics runs around aimlessly reviving everything in site? Well once again Dice comes through to give you back that good ol’ C4!

From the looks of it the recon class will be able to “run with the big boys” so to speak. Giving all these boosts to one class leaves us wondering what will happen to the other classes? Well stay tuned to Attack Of The Fan for updates on the new classes as well.

    YAAAYYYYYYY! I can’t wait! Impressive Things I just noticed while looking at this screenshot at the top: The soldiers left boot Toe is bent upward from the slight beveled edge of the Window! The Window on the right side of the screen shot is shattered and the pattern looks very realistic for a video game! The Draw distance is amazing with the Fog and the explosions on the rooftop of this massive city level look awesome for being so far away and really catches your eye and all other things going on in the distance like the flow of the water way and channels!

    Man, BF4 on 360 / PS3 will be so fricking gimped. The 12x zoom already looked like shit. Instead of the C4 I’d rather have my mortar strike from BFBC2 back.

    • Tyler Davis

      Meh – Mortar was okay, but it belongs with the support class. Not the sniper class. Also – the current mortar is crap – the call in from line of sight one was best… unless you have one leaf in your line of sight….

  • Facts First

    Better on XBOX ONE, according to DICE.

    Exclusive DLC and more powerful hardware = the best battlefield experience.

    Smart Glass Commander MODE!! BOOM>>

      COMPLETE LIE YOU SACK OF $HIT. You ran away from my last comment about this. Give me some proof. Mine is in the magazine Gameinformer.

      “DICE in a recent issue of GameInformer magazine has commented on one of the hottest gaming issue on internet, comparison between “PS4 and Xbox One” RAM memory and the amount of memory allocated especially for games.

      GameInformer asked DICE’s Karl Magnus: “People have made a lot about the difference between the PlayStation 4 having 8GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the 5GB of DDR3 RAM allotted toward the gaming partition on the Xbox One. Do you see that as an advantage for the PlayStation 4, or is that overblown?”

      To this Karl replied (In GameInformer Issue 244): “More memory or more CPU or GPU power – whatever kind of power we get out of a machine – more is always better, especially for the kind of games that we build.”

      “We
      have a long heritage of PC, and PC is a platform that has been scaled very well over the years. Naturally we’re very excited now seeing consoles that actually close in on what the PCs of today can do – even though it won’t take long before the PCs can do even more.”

      The above statement of Karl Magnus simple means for Battlefield 4 PC>PS4>Xbox One.”

      • Facts First

        And I quote from DICE at E3: “Battlefield 4 will be better on Xbox One. The superior hardware and online capabilities from Microsoft are allowing us to do things that aren’t possible on other “next-gen” systems. We’ve partnered with Microsoft to deliver the best Battlefield 4 experience, the true Battlefield 4 experience can only be found on Xbox One.” -IGN

        • RoadShow

          I’ve searched all over IGN. This is not there.

          • Facts First

            How can somebody possibly be bad at Google? I think maybe you should search Major Nelson + Battlefield 4 + Better on Xbox One + IGN + Imadumbass

            Then you should find it.

          • RoadShow

            The only search results end in what I listed above. I have an actual quote told you exactly where it is. You are the dumb ass, what you have is not anywhere to be found, hasn’t ever been seen by anyone. You made it up in your head.

          • Ben Read

            I have seen it. So Facts First is not speaking bull $hit; you are just a troll who wants to bring misery into everything.

          • RoadShow

            LOL bull shit. My god, it’s no fking where lol you both are pathetic. Look it up and all you see is them saying that “more power is always better”. They are talking about PS4 power.

            Fking prove it, you do the damn search. Show me a fking scree shot because it’s not fking there. Besides you are talking about a fking Micro$oft employee, he possibly could have said it at E3 but it’s not in the fking news you fking moron.

            What is in the news is exactly what I fking said.

          • mathMaticks

            Calm down, We all know the truth — bf4+ps4=gr8ness..

            EA got moneyhatted by M$,.. DICE likes the Ps4 better.

          • RoadShow

            Like I said. You lying sacs of fking crap.

          • NathGamer

            In an interview with Game Informer and DICE’s General Manager, Karl Magnus Troedsson, Mr. Troedsson was asked which next generation console he thinks will provide the best overall Battlefield experience.

            GI: People have made a lot about the difference between the PlayStation 4 having 8GB of GDDR5 RAM versus the 5GB of DDR3 RAM allotted toward the gaming partition on the Xbox One. Do you see that as an advantage for the PlayStation 4, or is that overblown?

            Troedsson: More memory or more CPU or GPU power – whatever kind of power we get out of a machine – more is always better, especially for the kind of games that we build.”. He added, “We have a long heritage of PC, and PC is a platform that has been scaled very well over the years. Naturally we’re very excited now seeing consoles that actually close in on what the PCs of today can do – even though it won’t take long before the PCs can do even more.

            So, straight from the big man himself, more power is better. So, ipso facto, the PS4 will be better :)

          • ksmarsch95

            Let the dumbasses get the xbox one I dont want idiots playing the same system as me.

          • jaskdavis

            Just curious Allen, why the hell are you using WindowsXP and not 7? ;)

          • Facts First

            Just like Xbox Live. Allen don’t like paying for nice things.

          • just_got_wicked

            You have no idea what the hell you are talking about do you? Its obvious that the PS4 version will be better so just keep lying to yourself. YOU ARE PATHETIC

          • Tyler Davis

            Why are you such a d-bag man? You attack everyone for not sharing your opinion. Grow up.

          • RoadShow

            It’s a work PC. I got Vista on a laptop, 7 on my gaming PC and 8 on my wifes new laptop.

            Windows 8 isn’t as bad as everyone acts like it is. Sure I haven’t tried to game on it yet though.

          • jaskdavis

            Vista is terribad!

          • jipppp

            Umm ps4 and xbox one are head to head, but i’d choose xbox over all because of one reason. xbox is more competitive. And if you disagree then you haven’t played both.

            I began on playstation then got a 360 from an ex, xbox hands down more competitive play if your into that. I think it makes it way more fun.

          • matt666

            from what I find that there more kids shouting down there mics on xbox and spinning around and doing fuckall so that the team your on loses

          • The General

            Win8 is the new Vista

          • just_got_wicked

            You are a complete moroon. Stick your XBOX up your a hole.

    • Sniper@

      Facts PLz????………Capt SHAT FIRST

    • Lazuliv

      Must you start shit everywhere you go? You and the other trolls on this site should go get lives.

    • scsinutz

      Ladies, Ladies. We all know neither of these crap ‘sudo x86′ pc devices will compare to an actual upgradable PC.

      Having said that, I think DICE meant that ‘The Xbox One is going to be better than the Xbox 360, obviously.

      I can guarantee, you will not notice a damn bit of difference between either of the new platform’s.

      I just wish they would implement cross platform multiplayer, so I could kick some console asses.

    • Craig

      “Better on XBOX ONE, according to DICE”

      According to Microsoft, not DICE.

  • david colk

    To be honest bf4 will look better on the ps4 and psn will improve a lot and with more power the ps 4 will look better. And I’m an xbox fan boy.

    • jaskdavis

      “To be “Logical” BF4 will most likely look better on the PS4″ Is what you meant to say since we don’t know as of right now, If DICE says BF4 will run 720p @60fps on X1 and 1080p @60fps on PS4 then PS4 it is for me as my first purchase! But I don’t think it would be that much difference between the two and most likely will run very similar with the PS4 having better lighting, AA, and particle effects, but the Hardware is too close for a drastic resolution or FPS difference between the two versions. YES, the PSN interface and social elements are going to bring a whole new experience for PS owners and make it that much better when they are enjoying the games!

      • Dirkdigglerstrikesagain.

        BF4 will run at 720p on BOTH next-gen consoles. As well as the PS4 OS seems to be a RAM eater. Yes, Sony has clarified that it isn’t as bad as they first rumors suggest but it still takes a huge bite our of development RAM.

    • caBooOm

      yep .. and well run faster ”loading time”

  • Fuzzy

    Dammit, still no Ghillie Suits… Crap, at least they gave us our C4 back, and I’m super excited for the 20X zoom and being ability to set the range on your scope. And a RANGEFINDER! Yes!!!!

    • Corey

      I miss the ghillie’s!!!

  • jrh

    The ps4 and Xbox one will be at par with the PC version they Can run 64 players on consoles and 60 fps and 1080p and the graphical limitations are not there now so everyone just be happy that for once we can say we all have a good looking game and experience.

  • oofy

    Man, this article needs to be edited ASAP.

  • oofy

    I like how only 1 comment is a response to the article and all the rest are flame wars.

  • CerN

    Finally, rangefinding and zeroing. Sniping might actually take som skill this time around.
