hey guys... i just wanna clarify a doubt regarding the perk designated target.  What exactly does it do ? what does it mean by visible for 2 more seconds ? (and what are direct and indirect fire modes ?)

    How many flipping posts do I need to get past Major?

Basically when someone breaks vision contact they will still stay visible for everyone for a number of seconds (i think it's around 8 seconds, but i'm sure someone will know). If you have designated target and keep your gun pointing in their direction that contact will stay visible for an extra two seconds.

 

I have it on a few of my scouts but only really once you get up around 4 or 5 skills.

The thing i dont understand about is the indirect part of the designated target.

I can only guess it means that clickers can see it too but not really sure. It seems a bit counter intuitive for them to highlight that indirect tho, so yeah nah dunno.

I've got it on one of my arty and it does seem to make some difference. You need to be highlighting the target as well.

 

Use auto aim to make sure the one you are highlighting stays lit for the extra time.

8 to 10 sec iirc (it's randomized). Designated target will increase that to 10-12 sec.
