I had to fill this out twice because you bug report form doesn't work. Fix that too.

Hey did you read the how to bug report? Standard smile @AxeFindle 

 

Thanks for the report, its less of a bug and more of a feedback on how it should work. 

 

I'm moving the post to game information.

I shouldn't need to read a document telling me how to file a bug report. It should be self evident and error proof.

But I see what you're saying I think. To me, it's a bug. I 'spot' - that's one action and I get 'change attack marker' that's a completely different and unwanted action.

this is not BFV specific but was the case in all BF-games. I guess it could be changed if there would be different keys settable for spotting and issuing orders (which we do not have in the game)

Hi @II__SUSHI__II 

In BF1 you were able to change that. The default settings were indeed that the spot button could be used both for spotting and selecting a capture point as a squad leader. The option was called: Context-Based Order Giving 

BF4, I think it was also possible but then differently. You had to hold the spot button for capture point and just a short tap to spot someone. For BF5 they choose to do it the way it currently is, so only scouts can spot. In way logical to me, while I really miss spotting myself since I don't like to play a scout class. But when you are a support class for instance, and level up it gives you an option to have your squad mates see the enemy with your suppressed fire. 

This I mean: 

 

Machine Gunner Traits

Bullet Storm: You have increased suppression ability.
Focused Fire: Automatically spot enemies when you fully suppress them. 

But who knows, if enough people want the option back they might add it in later.

And I learned something again! I agree it would be nice to get the option (again).
