IamA First Person Weapons Animator at DICE. AMA!
I'm the first person weapons animator at DICE LA. I've done weapon animations for Battlefield 4: Premium (including the recently discovered compound bow), Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. I've been animating professionally since 2001.
I can't answer questions about Battlefield 4 outside of my domain of expertise (weapon animation and implementation; game development in general) nor can I talk about unannounced projects.
Just posted a shoutout to Reddit on my Twitter account of the same name as my Reddit account: @AnimationMerc https://twitter.com/AnimationMerc/status/539867017571205120
EDIT: I apparently screwed up the AMA process despite reading the instructions (this is a common thing for me.) I don't think they've verified my proof yet but I guess I'll go ahead and start answering questions.
EDIT2: I'll be closing the thread around 5pm. Gotta get back to work. Get in any last minute questions now!
EDIT3: And the AMA is closed! Thanks for playing everyone but biggest thanks to /u/t1ggr for making this happen. Hopefully you were able to learn something about game dev and game animation. And hopefully we can do more of these in the future with other developers in different disciplines!
I will continue to lurk around /r/battlefield4 as well as some of the auto-related subreddits :)
