I've been recently trying to figure out all the changes with the latest Battlefield 3 update and the one that's baffling me a lot is laser designating.
After the patch, if a guided missle/javelin hits a vehicle that you laser designated(and it hit it while you had the designation), you'll get a seemingly random point bonus somewhere from 1-99 points.
Sometimes I'll get two bonuses from two missles that add up to more than 100, so I guess it's not damage. And sometimes, when it hits a smaller vehicle I'll only get 49 points even though the vehicle is destroyed.
What calculation goes into this point bonus?
