Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

YouTuber Jackfrags exhibits how Battlefield 5 allows you to hide in plain sight in hilariously ridiculous manner.

The latest in the line of Battlefield first-person shooter titles, Battlefield V was a game from developer EA DICE and publisher Electronic Arts that players were looking forward to with high regards but it came out greatly disappointing for both fans and studios.

Aside from failing to receive a decent amount of pre-order for the title and getting into controversy of enraging fans on social media, BV has its fair share of issues like player visibility problem that even bugs the die-hard series fans.

Before the guy got killed for the first time in the clip, he has shown just how difficult it is for some players to see others and he ran past the guy next to him to prove that and even sat next to him while someone else pass him by before being shot down by someone else.

All of this happened in a real live server where he had a hard time getting noticed by enemies running around him. On his next try, he goes into the middle of a conflict and idly sits there to prove that people actually cannot see foes coming at them at times.

He goes into the Devastation map to conduct an experiment by lying in open or down by come corridor only to see everyone running past him ignoring his existence as if his character has vanished from sight. We promise that you won't believe your eyes when you will see it.

Earlier, the developer made adjustments for time-to-kill values to make it less punishing for normies that led to many seasoned players start voicing concerns over the change and the game suffered a huge hit to the player count.

DICE has just rolled out their second major B5 expansion "Lighting Strikes" for free last week along with resolve for few gameplay issues but not resolving some basic issues like player visibility isn't going to help them much in the long-run.

Of course, the team behind Battlefield 5 has done a great service to fans by getting rid of the "Premium Pass" from game and moving away from their games-as-service philosophy was highly appreciated but they have to fix the game first to deal with the growing community frustration.

Studios involved to the game handled it so poorly that it couldn't make it to the list of best-selling games for year 2018, which is the first time in the Battlefield series history but Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on the other hand has made it to the list with ease.

In any way, Battlefield V is not a bad game but studio approach for fixing those issues from DICE and EA was so poor that many hardcore player of this online shooter are abandoning ship. It is not a question whether or not they can; it's a question of when they would focus on the problem?
