DICE has announced that it plans to fix the current multiplayer exploit of players shining ultra-bright flashlights to score easy kills in Battlefield 3.
DICE core gameplay designer Alan Kertz has confirmed that the tactical light will be nerfed, as seen in the images above. While the actual intensity of the light will remain the same, the radius of the light will be shortened. This should balance it, since if you attempt to blind someone from a mile away, you'll only be giving away your position.
The tactical light exploit isn't the only thing being fixed. The effectiveness of mobile AA guns are being reduced as well. While the damage will remain the same, the accuracy and rate will be reduced, as hails of ordnance were throwing air vehicles off. Jets will also be given the ability to have limited auto-repair, since they can't be repaired by engineers like helicopters can.
Let us know what you think of the tweaks being made to Battlefield 3.
