    Default Battlefront - No ADS?!

    So, I just saw that Star Wars: Battlefront will not have any aim down sight. This pretty much would mean that I would t even bother purchasing the game. What are some other people's opinions on that? I played the previous Battlefronts, but it was on console, so it was much different and I wasn't bothered by it at all. I haven't played a game without ADS since CS: Source or even MOHAA.

    As far as I can tell, ADS is available in first person but not third person.

    Ya, the whole no ADS thing is misconstrued. ADS has been confirmed for First Person.

    Personally I don't care that much because I play a lot of CSGO where there is no ADS, but I can understand why people would care a lot about this.

    There are a lot of misconceptions about this, mostly due to poor journalism. Here are the facts, bosed on both direct Dev quotes and the exclusive gameplay video I was lucky enough to see at Star Wars Celebration:

    1) In the first person view there is definitely ADS

    2) It seems like most of the weapons have scopes of some type. The gameplay footage I saw had what looked like a fairly standard blaster rifle with maybe a X4 scope attached. Pretty similar usage to playing BF4 with an ACOG equipped assault rifle. At one point in the video the character picked up a sniper rifle and later an RPG, both of which had different scopes.

    3) There are blasters that do not have scopes, I suspect most of the pistols do not.

    4) Most of the weapons were based on actual movie props that Lucasfilm allowed DICE to come and make digital renderings of. Because most of the non-scoped gun in star wars do not have an actual ironsight, neither do the guns in the game. You can still ADS all you want, you just won't have a traditional ironsight on top of the gun to line shots up with.

    5) Most of the journalists who read "no ironsights" immediately turned around and wrote "no ADS". The two are not the same thing.

    Good clarification.

    I feel like game companies as of late have done poorly from a PR perspective. If you make a claim in the internet age, you need to be ready for people's reaction. I know that they had mentioned that they would not have iron sights but will have scopes for some of the weapons. I really wonder how the game will turn out with all of the hype surrounding it.

    TBH, a lack of ADS is the least of my worries for Battlefront. I'm more skeptical regarding the lack of space maps, the apparently scripted nature of the AT-AT's, and the overall decreased map count.

    So here's some ADS and hip-fire circa 1977.



    I really hope they make the ADS stances as goofy and uncoordinated as they appear in the movies. I could immerse myself into the eyes of a poorly trained rebel. My enemies would lose all hope when I run up on them, haphazardly flailing a blaster rile around like it were a freshly caught channel catfish.

    When I started playing CSGO with no ADS, I felt the same way at first. But I got over it. However, I am glad Battlefront will have it. It is preferred. Adds more depth to a game, literally. Close quarters and mid- to long-ranged SHOULD have different tactics.

    For a game that doesn't (and shouldn't) pride itself on realism. I have no problem with no ADS. Like all games though I'm wary by nature. I will not pre-order. I WILL wait for a week of reviews, youtube videos, and metascores before I decide to make a purchase!
