Battlefield: Bad Company 2
— In-game description
— Battlelog description
Proximity Scan is a vehicle specialization featured in Battlefield 3 and is available to all vehicles. When it is equipped, enemy infantry in the immediate area are marked on the minimap. This specialization also works for the gunner in a MBT or IFV.
Unlike T-UGS, Proximity Scan does not ignore height and instead will detect enemy infantry within a 29m sphere. Standing still, going prone or crouching does not hide infantry from proximity scanners.
Proximity Scan does not detect vehicles.
While available for all vehicle classes, it is of little use to air vehicles. Helicopters are typically at medium range to their targets, jet fighters move too fast, and all air vehicle weapons except the attack helo gunner's cannon are forward firing. A helicopter crew attempting repairs may potentially find use for Proximity Scan as early warning against ambushers, as ground vehicles certainly do.
