Switch to battlefront 2?

★ Novice

I've been playing Star Wars BF 1 for a while but get so tired of what appears to be hackers (i'm not an expert so maybe I"m wrong). I admit I'm not that great, but when I am at point blank range firing at a guy before he starts firing and then immediately upon him firing  back I'm dead, something doesn't seem right.  I've read about Cronus hackers with rapid fire,  and aim assist and low spread from your gun, it's impossible to play against these guys.  Sometimes I get some games that are pretty fun.  Is there a group of guys that  schedule times to play against each other without the hackers?  I'd love to play. 

 

Or should I switch to BF2?

 

My game name is ISuckAtThis2805

@schnur07 there are hackers in BF2 as well. Assuming you play on PC? I'm still not sure hackers exist on PS4 or XBox. I love both BF1 and BF2, you should definitely invest into BF2 some day just for the fun of it. Most likely, BF1 will be the first game to "die" when that day comes just because it's older. Just a heads up: for me at least, there is a VAST difference in game play between BF1 and BF2. I was pretty good in BF1, pretty good in BF2, but now when I go back to BF1 I get destroyed every single game, every single time. I find BF1 is more "fire from the hip" and BF2 more "aim and fire" so for me, it's different mechanics

Thanks for the reply.  I play on Xbox. I've tried BF2 but maybe haven't got used to it yet. My daughter loves it. I've only played a few times, but at the most basic level, I've had a hard time getting used to stuff like how much life I have. I don't like the graphic set up vs BF1.  I also don't like not having a jump back and other options, but maybe just haven't played enough to figure it all out. At my age (52), I don't have a lot of time to invest in learning a new game. But maybe with my daughter's help I can get there.

I turn 51 in April, and I'm in BF2 almost every day. Might be the reason I get my arse kicked, because I'm playing against kids literally half my age. My reflexes have dimmed since fighting off that bat in Adventure for the 2600

So is BF2 a little less of constant moving, rolling and shooting? You mentioned less shooting from the hip.  Part of my problem is that my brain and fingers can't work fast enough to keep up! I do think it's good for my brain though as I'm more of an analytical thinker, pondering kind of guy so BF1 forces me to think much more quickly. I'd probably be better as a sniper. But in BF1 if you sit too long in one spot, you're dead.

Probably one of the reasons I prefer Specialist class is I don't have to "run and gun" so much and rely on reflexes. I can scope people out and have fun like that. My MAJOR issue with BF2 is there are no Infantry only modes like Blast in BF1. So you have tons of spammers running around with rocket launchers and 5x your health and you don't last very long as an Infantry unit.

to directly answer your question, it depends on your style of play. you can race around like a manic diving and rolling (or jumping up and around, but nobody like players like that) or you can be more strategic and stay back and pick people off. But if you DARE shoot at a reinforcement character, they will go right after you immediately

You know if they would have provided a proper server browser on the PC side of things this game would still be going. Heck I can still play Battefield BadCompany 2 as there are still tons of active servers.  It's a shame because Bettlefront was a really good game.
