So they removed shooting whilst jumping...

Anyone else as upset about this as I am?

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?

Personally I find it stupid to be able to do it so I like that it was removed...however, I can't say I noticed it gone without you mentioning it.

Last ditch effort? I dare you to go buy a gun and jump off a 4 foot ledge while shooting it
CATS. That's about it honestly...

I guess to make it more "realistic."

Hey hey, remember when dolphin diving was a thing?

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.

how many times have you seen video of soldiers in battle in real life jumping around corners shooting.

Still bunny hopping is lame and looks stupid even if it is effective. I prefer it gone :P

Combat in Battlefield 2 (until they patched it) was literally just jumping around and dolphin diving over and over until somebody got lucky with the random deviation and got a kill.

By far one of the stupidest things I have ever seen In a game.
