Suppression

Westie posted a video with a great discussion point on the mechanics of suppression in BF3 and thoughts on tweaks for BF4.  I have to agree that it is a little overdone in BF3.  I think it would make the support class more useful to be the primary suppressive class; that is the whole point behind how the LMGs are set up in BF3 (high recoil, spread, bipods).  As it stands, suppression is not a tactical tool; it is just an annoyance when being fired at and being unable to hit the broad side of a barn because of it.  From the other side, it is just another source of points when you fail to kill your target.  If the support class was the only one able to create significant suppression, and if it didn't happen every time a bullet traveled within your general area, it would become a more significant part of the game and have a more tactical use.  I really hope they tweak it for BF4 in ways similar to what Westie offers:
