The most basic skill of Battlefield LIVE is aiming.
You’ll need to aim at one of three sensors: two on the head, one of the barrel. Aim anywhere else – and you’ll miss. Even if you can see the gamer’s head or part of the gun, you should hold fire until you can actually see the sensor.
Remember that shooting gives away your position and wastes ammunition so you really only want to shoot in most cases when your confident of making a hit.
The exception to this is where you are trying to lay down suppressive fire.
The scorpions have a red dot scope to help you aim. To achieve the best accuracy, aim the red dot 5 centimetres above the target’s sensor.
Each gaming gun emits a harmless infrared beam, just like a TV remote. The beam is focused so you will need to aim.
Remember, you have both a barrel (where the infrared beam is produced) and a scope (where your red dot is). You may be able to see through the scope, but your barrel might be blocked. If that’s the case – you won’t hit anyone! Be sure your barrel is clear of cover including any foliage. The beam will pass through anything you can see through, but it certainly won’t go through a wall.
