No Prone For Battlefield: Bad Company 2

Fans of going prone in shooters, shuffling along the dirt to gain a strategic advantage on their adversaries, look away now. Announcing his aversion to the ability on Twitter (where else?), Battlefield: Bad Company 2 lead designer David Goldfarb is not a fan of the move.

Fyi we will not add prone based on anything. You can stop asking now. :)

Of course you can crawl on your belly in MAG, if you still feel the urge.


Some people are saying the prone feature will not be supported in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as it “slows down the game.” There are others, however, who feel its omission is due to the phenomenon of “Dolphin Diving” found in Battlefield 2. No, I had never heard of it either. Until now.
