Ok, the kill-cam issue has been discussed several times before and whether you like it or not, it's a part of the game. Personally, I think the kill-cam is a fun feature, at least as far as seeing who killed you. However, I do agree that it's a bit too easy to deduce from the kill-cam where your killer was and where he was going.

This is a suggestion on how to keep the kill-cam but make it a bit harder to know what your killer is up to after your death.

Why not simply take a snap-shot of your killers face-cam the instant he kills you and show it something like this:

The reduced area of the snap-shot will make it slightly harder to see where the person who killed you are and you won't be able to see where he's going if it's just one frame.

Thank you.

It also opens up for some potentially awesome screenshot opportunities.

first of all: there never was something like kill cam in this game, it is something more like "ow look where that guy who killed you is going!" thing.

I had another idea, and it's probably more light and simple to implement.

The killcam is still important to snuff out campers Smile but for campers, I don't think it needs to be focused on the killer the whole 10 seconds until we respawn. It's also pretty annoying knowing that despite how much you move after you kill an enemy, he will always have a strong chance bo be able to chase you off when he respawns, after all, not only he see's you the whole time until he respawns, but also the killer's name will be displayed for a small time after respawn, givving him feedback of the killer's position, even after respawn.

This could be solved by simply showing the killer's killcam for only 2/3 seconds, and then switch back to the dead corpse for the rest of the 5/6 seconds.
It would be something like:

-After death: 2 seconds for dying animation;
-Then: 3 seconds for killcam;
-Finally: the last 5 seconds from the dead corpse perspective (cool to watch a medic trying to revive you Big Grin, or the rest of your squad getting slaughtered Smile);
-10 seconds total.

This solution would not be that convenient at all for recons though. I mean, the bullet trail already gives them a hard time. No wonder Assault units could chase them off so EAsly. The ARs accuracy was not the only problem. So, zooming on the face like ShadyTex said, or somehow reducing the area of the killcam like buck suggests would also help.

In anycase, the killcam needs to change a bit, to stop showing enemy location totally until the end, or completely.

The main issue as I see it is that the kill-cam is currently following the killer around too long.

What the... Leave the kill cam as it is, if you guys can't handle the dude you've just killed coming after you, go play something else or don't be so predicable, head in the opposite direction then change direction again after 10 seconds, it's not that hard.

It's time you lot manned up and grew a pair.

Absolutely yes. Something we need. We don't just want this, we need it. It's beneficials overpower any negative influence caused by it, automatically rendering it a good idea. /Sign

What's the use of tea-bagging a guy if he doesn't see it?

I like how it is now, since you get the chance to see a bit of other players playstyle. Since it's the same for everyone, no one gets an unfair advantage out of it.

Also, you can easily fool the guy you just killed by tricking him: just turn around after 10 seconds and take another route.

All you need to do is take the killcam into account when you're playing, turn that disadvantage into an advantage, use tactics: do not stay in the same spot, and don't take a predictable route.

This feature actually forces players to think and strategize, and you want to remove it?
