[quote]THE BUZZ: Some have complained about mortar spam in Battlefield 3, but according to DICE’s Alan Kertz, the developer is considering at least one solution.
On his Twitter account, Kertz said the following:
Seriously considering MAVs as a counter to Mortars. ECM jammers could destroy the Mortar with a few hits. Looking for feedback.
EGM’s TAKE: This tweet by Kertz is a few days old now, but coming across it today, I thought it was an interesting detail to bring up for those who have passionate opinions about Battlefield 3‘s mortars one way or another.[/quote]Interesting idea. If they were to do this they would have to make MAVs easier to take out. I'm not sure if it was a glitch or something but I had to shoot it with more than 10 bullets to take it down, which to me is a little much.
