Battlefield 3 - Knife & Sniper

The killing with knives is changed from Bad Company 2. There are also changes in the multiplayer to prevent the sniper camping in BF 3.

In addition: DICE confirmed that there will be no modding tools in Battlefield 3 due to the complexity of the Frostbite 2 Engine.

The knife:
In Battlefield Bad Company 2 the player was able to kill an enemy with one single stab with the knife. The reward was a dogatag of the killed enemy, a bronze, silver, or a golden one, depending on his rank.

In Battlefield 3 only a direct stab in the back of the enemy causes an instant kill and a dogtag. If you try to stab him in the chest, you'll need two stabs to kill him but without a dogtag.

Sniper camping:
Everyone hates the sniper camper. In BC 2 the player couldn't lay down but in BF 3 he can. To prevent camping DICE implements a new feature. The rifle of every sniper, who's laying too long at the same spot, will reflect the light. So if you think you know his location perhaps, you will see his reflection which revealed his exact location.
