Brighter Blaster Bolts Update

Check out the brightness of the blaster bolts in Star Wars HQs latest video 'Star Wars Battlefront 2 - New Stormtrooper Variant on Crait! Graphics Update! Good News for Sales!'.

I know that the brighter blaster bolts seen is a mod, but this is exactly how it should look - this makes it feel completely like Star Wars as it did in BF2015.

I hope devs see this and decide to do an official update in making the blaster bolts look brighter as they are in this video as it's what the game desperately needs.

How does everyone else feel about this?

    Look for a thread called “twitter” something. Someone posted screenshots of twitter replies from devs saying blasters and lightsabers gfx are being worked on

  • Agree, I still feel like I should see bolts all over my screen. I don’t want to hear “oh well it gives my position away”. This is Star Wars, they weren’t firing bullets at each other.

    It’s a small cosmetic thing that granted doesn’t affect my gameplay but would greatly enhance the Star Wars feel.

  • They do look a bit better but the blaster bolts look fine in the current game
  • This is the best mod I've used so far. The hologram one is awesome, and the various skins are cool, but these suped up blaster shots make the game so much intense.

    Unlimited Power has been removed

    His Unlimited Power has been taken from him as well as his title, respect, dignity, integrity, and speaking privileges after he refused to admit the EL-16 was not just good but the best Assault Blaster Rifle in the game

  • If someone didn't say he was using the mod in the video I wouldn't had noticed a difference. Don't even see a download link anywhere for the mod.

  • It’s as it should have been to begin with, as of now it’s as ridiculous as the skins. I still can’t believe they failed on skins and blaster fire.
  • The sniper bullets looks a bit silly

    I like that the BFII blaster bolts are faster and don't mind that they're slimmer as it looks more accurate to the movies, they just need to be brighter. This mod adds the brightness that the bolts should have. I hope an official update for this makes its way into the game, especially on console as I play on PS4

    They look great with the trail behind each shot as it represents a snipers shot, different from the usual blaster bolts

    My apologies. Nice, I really hope they're being worked on, will be great when an update arrives. It was mentioned in this video too

    So you don't want the game to look and feel more like Star Wars? Okay, we get it, you're a dumb dumb. Unless you're gonna post something constructive (which you won't as you never do due to limited skill and intelligence) then be gone.

    I’m not a noob. I want brighter blaster bolts that look like the movies.
  • Thought I was the only one who preferred the sounds, guns, lazers and explosions from the first Battlefront.Seriously, look at the lazer bolts, lightsabers, thermal imploder animation and specifically the weapon sounds, they just sound and feel more powerful in the previous game.

    As long as graphical performance doesn't take a hit, sure. I know you PC guys may not worry about this stuff, but console folks sure do.
  • Been playing around with it, might install the less intense one as it can get a little clowny in intense fights. It looks just like this gif they posted.

    Does this mod thicken the bolts also? Because the blaster bolts just need to be brighter, not thicker as they seem to appear here. The brightness is perfect.

    i like what i see
  • i dont see how this could be a graphical limitation as the previous EA battlefront, i think, quite nailed the look and feel of the blaster bolts....2 years ago on console lol
  • The bolts and lightsabers are confirmed to be worked on from the Lead Designer on Reddit.They said that they were heavily inspired by Rogue One and the "crudeness" and "grittiness" so thats why they differentiated the graphics.Although they are wary of our wants so they should look amazing in Season 2.

    Nice, even when you watch Rogue One they're still bright though. I do like how blaster bolts are faster, as well as slimmer as they look more accurate to the movies. But yeah, once they're brighter it'll be perfect. So keen for Season 2

    I agree 100%. I would like to see Dice make the blaster bolts brighter for BF2. It's strange that it wasn't like it was in it's predecessor, so I don't know why they didn't do the same for the successor :confused:.
