What is so good about Promethean Vision???

#21Scorpion122178Posted 11/25/2012 9:26:47 PM
intel is everything, when my opponent is standing on the other side of the wall I want to know EVERYTHING about them, whether they see me coming and is facing corner waiting for me, what kind of weapon they are using(can't tell you how many sword/shotgun users I spotted), where their teammates are in relation to them.

PV is stupid amounts more useful than a red blip on the radar.

How exactly does it go about revealing Camo users? PV people haven't always been able to see me when I have Camo enabled, but those times I was also behind a wall. Does it not detect Camo through walls?


It turns your whole vision into X-ray vision. Even if the player is entirely cloaked and just camping he sticks out in PV like his camo wasn't on.

Also for the user saying the radar shows you where everyone is and PV is useless.The radar doesn't show you which direction they are facing. You could head up the ramp on Abandon put PV on and see enemy players with their backs to you and sprint in and assassinate them. You can't do that with radar.

Huh, guess I must have been facing people who didn't know what they were doing with PV (I'm not kidding, now that I know this I'll have to be more careful).

Prometgean vision is for new players who don't know the maps yet so they can ease into the action. The more you know the maps, the less useful it becomes. All the other AA's are better.

Sorry, but someone using Wetworks Stealth Perk can't be seen through walls with PV. That in it of itself makes PV useless. Combine stealth with AC and that is a perfect ambusher, if the person can pull it off right.

Watch from 2:56-3:20. A very good example of how PV works and how it is best used.

Another great explanation of why PV is good.

Also for anyone who might think PV is OP, hologram actually does trick PV, even if camo doesn't.

I never said it was fool proof, only that it can detect users who are using active camo. Secondly Wetworks unlocks at level 50-60, which a lot of players currently aren't and like I mentioned above hologram does trick PV.

I often find that using Promethean Vision slows down my playing wayyy too much. This game is already pretty fast paced so when I do put it on a class, I use it maybe once in a match, sometimes not at all.

It might be good for slower players, but the amazing motion sensor in this game plus the Sensor Upgrade greatly overpower it for me.

Yes because one rare specific hypothetical situation invalidates it complete worth.

By your logic I should never use the DMR since Sniper Rifles exist.
