True. But it will constrict you and make it more difficult to bear the weight of your equipment.

Personally I think that there should be a drowning timer, but a rather long one. We should be able to swim across rivers and stuff no problem. And pilots shouldn't be limited. Let's say that they've got life preservers underneath their seat cushion or something. Because if they have to eject over water, they may be in for a swim. Also spec ops dude should have a longer drown timer, allowing for waater insertions by helo.

BF2 has drowning time? What is it, 10 minutes? I always assumed they just took it out, as in 42 and nam you'd drown in about 2 minutes or less, and I've swam around the carrier in oman 3 times once before, no drowning...

I'm no pilot, but I do believe they have something on their vest that inflates. It makes sense.

Institute a timer, but not because it's gonna stop you from being killed on the carrier... lol Muttrah is the only map that the enemy does not have means to reach you. That means on the others you better watch your ass.

Kits should include inflatable rafts and people should down after 10 seconds except spec-ops.


Link me to a single story where regular troops had to swim with their equipment in a battlezone. Removing swimming will make bridges and APCs so much more important and critical on the battlefield.

I was on RFAD TS, Alpha squad was playing on muttrah and heard wormy say "If they don't bring attack, we`ll bring attack to them"
If USMC is too incompetent to attack docks for the 5 Min's it takes to swim then i say let they be boarded

How about making it so that swimming drains your stamina, even if you're not sprinting in the water. Basically, make it so that it decreases your stamina very slowly, and if you have no stamina in the water, you begin to drown. That would be my idea, or we can simply have some sort of drown timer like others suggested.

I do agree with one thing, some sort of "Dome of Doom" effect would be nice for uncaps. It helps prevent spawncamping, and makes for a better game overall.

In Invasion of the Philippines the boats when sinking spawned a small 2 seater raft with a motor and everything temporarily.

That is pretty bad if you are getting raped at the spawn by the China Men. Sounds like the way to fix the whole base rape thing is called teamwork. If your squads are doing their job, the only time you would be at the main point is at the beginning or if your spawn point was found and destroyed.

As far as other people commenting about swimming with gear. In light gear it isn't too bad. What you do is wrap your gear in plastic bags and take the air out to save space. Once you seel the plastic bag and drop your pack in water, the air that is left in your plastic bags in your pack will work as a floating device. Works rather well with light flak jackets though i never tried it while carrying a land mine or with armour plates in the flak jacket. It is tireing though but you will float.

Bunny from Platoon "... I get this bad feeling. I told the padre the truth man, I like it here. Get to do what you want, nobody f#@%$ with you. The only worry you got is dying. And if that happens you won't know about it anyway..."

But he had just spawned so for all you know he was attacking and got destroyed. And he might not have had helicopters because people who couldnt fly tried to. (IF YOU CANT FLY DONT)

Its not his fault if the helis are crashing on take off. The marines can still grab the boats. Or hell, they can even swim to the city, climb a ladder and tab to the docks.

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.
