Greetings friends. Although the Battlefront 2 beta has just ended, the game comes out next month, so its time to stock up on all the info you can hit new levels when the game releases.
First vs third person
Third person has come a very long way since the old battlefront 2. Back then, at very long range your shots were actually less accurate at long ranges. They would go past your point of aim, and you would need to aim by where you see them hitting. At the same time, you got much better visibility thanks to the third person camera, so it was a worthy trade off.
This is no longer the case. The third person camera modes in newer games are much better and are equally accurate to first person mode.
The main advantage of third person mode is the increased visibility. You can use your camera to check corners and look over your cover without being open to enemy fire. This is an amazing feature for campers, but its also very good for anti camping. You can look check your corners with the third person camera to see if there’s a camper, which removes any advantage they had by getting the drop on you.
There is only one pro to using first person. Its more zoomed in because your camera is less far back. This can help with your aim at long ranges.
Also first person feels cooler to me, but that’s not exactly an advantage. I advise you try out either and pick which one feels better or you play the best with. Overall though, I’d say that third person is better.
Tips for better aim
There are a few mechanics to aiming that you may not have known about.
First of all, in Battlefront your hip fire is much more accurate then in other games like Call of Duty. In COD, your bullets can hit anywhere within your hip reticle. This is not the case in battlefront. Your first shots hit the middle of your reticle, and begin to spread more as you shoot.
Iron sighting, which just zooms in if you don’t have a scope or anything, does reduce recoil and bullet spread. Note that it does lower your mobility.But if you are able to stand still or move more slowly and shoot, you want to sight in to land more shots.
Lastly, crouching also increases accuracy, stacking with sighting in. It is less important then sighting in, but it is still a small buff. So if you are shooting at long range and can afford the decreased mobility, you want to crouch and aim down sight for maximum accuracy.
