Maybe not everyone else does this as much as I do, but since my CoD days it sorta became a habit to jump when I came around the corner at the same time as someone else, or when someone else came up behind me. It ended up being fairly successful, especially when I run around with a shotgun. They'll miss their first shot or two and I'll retaliate with a mid-air shotgun blast to the noggin.
It's somewhat of a second-to-last-ditch effort, but now I end up looking like an idiot for not shooting someone right in my face while I'm mid-jump.
I guess it's not a total loss since we can still shoot whilst parachuting, but still. Was there really a reason to actively remove it? --- Not changing this sig until Pat Benatar is in Super Smash Bros. (Started 8/31/2010) 3DS Friend Code: 1075 - 0844 - 9134 - GHOST: Pumkaboo, Lampent, Dusclops.
I also miss it, it adds flavors to just a direct confrontation between two people shooting each other that is usually dictated by what guns they're using (higher rpm usually wins). Realism my ass, you're talking about realism in a game where someone could spawn out of their squadmate's rear hole and could recover from damage by hiding behind a wall for 10 seconds.
