Too many assists

You get way too many assists in this game. If you're the one that kills an opponent you should get the kill.

It's rather annoying, I'm trying to complete weapon milestones too.

  • It's worst in Heroes Vs Villains. I get more assists than kills.
  • Sometimes I just shoot at an enemy knowing there's no chance I could kill that guy and I often end up getting an assist for causing him a small damage. I would keep that, but for damage exceeding 30% or so.

    I love assist count as kill because it was annoying in BF games where you did all the work and then that lazy team mate waits for you to do all the work like a vulture kill stealing. "I can't get kills so ill steal from my teammates. My teammates love me so much" im glad those days are over. just need to fix progress some eliminations not counting unless its last damage

    That was annoying indeed however in most cases not intentional, I guess. How about points deduction for "vulture kill" ;)

    well the best solution I saw was that in the Battlefield games they use to make the assist count as kill like 75% damage meaning if you did at least 75 damage that would count as assist and not just one shot and then someone else shoots and kills player and that 1 shot from the other player counted. but if they decide to keep it like this, maybe for future challenges just raise the number since they are counting assists and kills together. I do like the idea of changing out the need for kill vs elimination because it sounds more team oriented.
  • ...well when in the phases to complete kill milestones you have to play very differently surely ? Eg be mean and pick off lone players and yes of course its a slog - cant change Assist just for that as will have other consequences elsewhere

    tough slog you say? 1:22 reference lol

  • Too many assists? Try actually killing them.

    I do kill them and still get assists even though I quite clearly killed them.

    Unless I just don't notice, I wasn't aware there was an issue with registering your kills as actual kills rather than assists. 1v1 never happens to me, as it shouldn't (I would hope so at least) but I feel like any scenario with multiple people firing at one enemy there's probably going to be latency and lag issues that can't figure out who killed who. But I haven't felt like I've been having kills stolen from me.
  • The TTK is so low they have to make assists much easier to get than BF, otherwise people will be disappointed with their low 'kill score' (eliminations).

    The game is done, I don't think they will change it much, but lower TTK with assault's and heavy's main guns please and then change this stupid assist system. But this will make vanguard/infiltration obsolete (would'nt mind it), so I don't think they will change much.

    At least the specialist main guns can kill other players...

    I swear the slug vanguard is so inconsistent. I'll go point blanc and shoot an assault soldier and it'll take 2 shots to kill them. But someone will shoot me with with the slug vanguard (no headshot) and I die in 1 shot (being the assault class myself).
  • I've found that the more I progress the more kills I get, and the less I get assists to the point where I am getting a 3:1 ratio on kills:assists now pretty consistently. Originally it was 1:1(ish)

    Does make me wonder whether it's set up so the person who does the most damage gets the kill, or the person whose shot registers last.

    Which begs the question... If a man is shot 20 times in real life, who kills him? The person who shot him, or the doctor that turns off the life support? I'd be giving the assist to the doc, personally.

    Would be interesting to know how the kill/assist mechanics actually work.

  • I liked the feature in Battlefield 1 where you could also get "assist counts as kill" if you caused most of the damage then someone else finishes your opponent off.
  • Totally agree. I'm bored to death of it. After putting all that time into killing someone then getting it taken from you over, and over, and over is incredibly tedious.

    Totally agree. The amount of time it takes to kill anyone is an abolute joke. Anyone on your team can see you firing at someone and just take the kill after you've put all the work in. Happens over and over again. Proper tedious.


    Why does this forum not show your posts, so you make a new one and then it ahows your previous one. Not surprising.

    Yeah exactly, if you deal the most damage to an enemy then you should get assist counts as kill.

    What really? Have you seen my other threads that I've created?

    I've noticed a few of the milestone challenges are not counting when you get elimitinations that were assists and others where they are counting. so it sounds like not all the challenges are set right. i didn't keep track of which one's do what.
