Battlefield 3 Hits Snipers Right Where It Hurts

You've been here before - pinned down by a sniper. But something about Battlefield feels fresh and immediate. This might be modern warfare, but that doesn't mean this is old hat, not by a damn sight.


This clip shows troops moving to the rooftops to take out a sniper. Everything is measured, deliberate and well-paced. And the pay-off? Kerpow!

This isn't actually all that "fresh". I guess I would know this, because I'm a veteran Marine, but this whole scene is ripped straight out of something that happened in real life to a group of Marines during the height of Operation Iraqi Freedom. They were pinned down on a rooftop by some snipers across the way, in some balcony. Maybe you could add this to the article. Check it out!



Edit to add: Not to say that it isn't cool or anything...
