Flanking Is a Cheap Tactic and Unfair

Flanking is a cheap way on getting a kill because you spent 10 minutes of walking. It takes little to no skill at all and players only do it because they can't win face to face fights with anyone. Players with high back shots should be get reduced skill level.

I mean come on, Its so easy to kill people by shooting them in the back. They get no chance at all and most of the time if it was face to face the person flanking would lose. Flankers resort to this cheap tactic for that lack of skill. There is no other reason for doing so.

Its ludicrous how people exploit game mechanics of not being able to see behind you. Fps developers for years have been trying to counter this with footsteps, mini maps, etc. but people still abuse it. It is just sick how people with such low skill level get free kills for this cheap tactic.

I'm hoping some type of system comes in to balance it. Such as banning players who do so or extra armor for the back of soldiers.

I don't think I can take this thread seriously. But, if you insist.

There is no problem. If you got flanked, that's your fault. It's a viable and fair tactic.

You haven't listed any reasons how it's unfair. What? Because someone took time to run around, it's unfair?

Please, elaborate.

Its not stupid! Its unfair to spend 10 minutes walking around a guy then shooting him in the back. Does that sound like the guy getting flanked had a chance? No its a cheap tactic and should be countered.

LMAO that's why flanking is not only a virtual warfare tactic but a real life warfare tactic. Go back to COD NOOB

A successful counter would be to flank the flanker. OR flank him 1st! OR watch him flank and shoot his arse.

You post is ridiculous. You first say internet slang abbreviations and then tell me to go play another first person shooter. You have no reason to be in this thread please leave!

Lol, yes, let's put off fixing this game so we can counter flanking.

You have to be kidding. Pay attention to your surroundings. You can hear footsteps. Please tell me you're trolling.

I really like the idea of a "Counter-Flank" mechanic, just like the "Counter-Knife" mechanic. With each bullet, a prompt will appear that will instead deflect that bullet back on it's attacker, just like elite soldiers do in real-life.

Footsteps in this game a way too quiet. Its also hard to find a flanker in the surroundings when he is behind you.

what map takes 10mins to walk? the most MAX is 30 secs. I will not be spawn killed over and over till the game is over.. flanking is the smartest and your only option at that point, your fault for not setting claymores behind you to prevent a flank
