    I feel the main 3 weapons in this game is the FAMAS, USAS-12, and AS VAL. Gets tiring being killed by only these for a few rounds straight.

    Holy actual fuck I think I just shit my heart out.

    I was playing Wake Island against what can only be described as a team with a fucking C4 fetish. My eyes were fucking gushing blood with rage as I would walk onto a point or even drive about 15 feet and disappear in a god damn fireball of fire, dirt and pieces of my ass.

    It became so fucking bad that I was unloading entire magazines into anything that was even looked like those god damn little black squares. Those fuckers WOULD PUT THE GOD FORSAKEN SHIT FILLED BLACK SQUARES IN PLACES THEY ALREADY DETONATED SO THEY BLENDED INTO THE BLACK GROUND THE BLAST MADE. I don't think anyone can comprehend how many fucking black circles a full team of support can do over 20 minutes.

    IT WAS LIKE FUCKING BLACK HISTORY EDITION OF TWISTER EXCEPT AS YOU CONTORTED YOUR BODY AROUND THESE SHIT STAINS THEY WOULD FUCKING BLOW UP.

    Which makes it even more all the fucking horrifying because that means those sadistic little cunts WERE WATCHING YOU BUT YOU COULDN'T FIND THEM. All the god damn trees were gone, and you were moving along every possible path and you could probably only find one or two of the hell spawn and it would be because you caught them in the act of laying it down.

    Anyways it comes to a point where I am sprinting up to the airfield running like fucking chicken with it's head cut off, and you all know how long it takes to sprint to the airfield, imagine trying to do it while running evasive maneuvers.
    I finally make it to the airfield because the battlefield gods decided to have mercy on my soul and I see a jeep that is in a tight area right next to the airfield building that holds the control point. I get about 15 to 10 feet or so from it when an enemy gets inside (the jeep was facing towards the airfield building so he didn't see me) and the stupid shit begins to do the usual back and forth motion of hitting walls trying to turn a little at a time to get out.

    I do not know what I was fucking thinking in the next few seconds, it should have been fucking obvious why this dude wanted this jeep so bad, but in those moments of surprise your reflexes take over and you do what it is natural. I throw a grenade then I whip out my SMAW and fire that god damn glorious rocket up that bitch's ass hole.

    Well some of you more perceptive folks probably realized that the mother fucking jeep was covered in that god forsaken material that is C4, all over the hood where I couldn't see it. Some of you extremely fucking perceptive folks must of realized that if these guys lay down C4 everywhere than that building right next to the jeep was probably filled with about 3 support's worth of C4.
    Now from here you must all realize that there was C4 in other areas in close proximity to this too.

    What happens next is that the the rocket explodes with the grenade making the god damn jeep explode and thus the C4, so I am sitting here expecting a small boom from the SMAW and instead I get what looks like a fucking nuke going off in my face with my entire screen rattling and what sounds like a train anally raping a fucking jet. THIS FUCKING BLOWS UP ONE OF THE FUCKING C4 IN THE BUILDING WHICH BLOWS UP ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. THIS HAPPENS SO FAST THAT IS THE ENTIRE FUCKING BUILDING'S WALLS JUST DISINTEGRATE AND IT LOOKS LIKE THE FUCKING SCENE FROM INDEPENDENCE DAY WHERE THE WHITE HOUSE GETS BLOWN UP:
    This fucking happens over the course of a literally a god damn second that I just fucking stand there in front of a smoking crater that used to be an air field like a fucking dumbshit not sure what the fuck just happened. I think I was god damn foot taller from the brick I shat because the map just gave birth to a second fucking sun for a second.

    Of course naturally after that I was filled with the bullets of the entire enemy team because I might as well walked into the middle of their house right in front of them and took a big smelly shit on their floor.

    edit- Got some lovely explosive destroyed points though.

    Okay guys, for a short term fix, disabling Aero helped me a bit. Although RAM is dirt cheap at the moment so i'll most likely replace my 4GB and get brand new 8GB, as the current manufacturer of mine doesn't do RAM any more.
    I have bf3.exe disable aero when I play, then come back when I'm done.

    Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 3 right click bf3.exe > properties > compatibility > disable desktop composition

    This also helps when your game minimizes because windows nags that it has disabled aero for performance (like mine kept doing).

    Demand for keys. Dense people don't want to order via origin yet there is no reason why not to.

    k so i come here for a completely unbiased opinion from people who have already bought the game and are posting in a tread specifically for the social mongering of the game if it is worth buying


    shed upon me the grace of interpretation
    I'd say yeah, but in its current state it's a bit of a disappointment. Hopefully DICE will get their heads together and fix some of the outstanding issues. Also if your computer isn't up to scratch yet, don't go near it. I bough a new GPU so I could play it "comfortably" but I still get framerate drops when turning around in MP, despite a stable 70fps + in co-op and SP on lowest settings.

    Edited:

    Played normal mode for so long... got on a hardcore server without realizing it and got raped

    even the AS-Val couldn't have saved me...
    Hardcore is good but I don't like the absence of an ammo counter. At least show me what fucking firemode I'm on!
    But yeah, it removes the frustration of pretty much emptying your mag into a guy and seeing him stroll off seemingly unscathed.

    Edited:

    I feel the main 3 weapons in this game is the FAMAS, USAS-12, and AS VAL. Gets tiring being killed by only these for a few rounds straight.
    Only on CQB maps. I find I can't kill shit with the FAMAS over 60m unless I'm firing in single shot or 2-3 round bursts.

    I'd just get it through origin, karkand from what I've seen is cheaper on origin than on all the key sites I've found, not sure if it's the same story for the main game.

    I had a lot of footage for this video but I ended up wiping most of them for this video.
    This is all that remains until I bother doing some more, but here is a teaser I suppose.

    Should I crack on with getting more footage for the real thing?

    Does your audio cut out randomly and your gun disappear for a split second?

    yeah, and the audio repeats itself like 5 times in chunks. i fixed it partially with some console commands and that made it possible to do the SP intro but trying to play the second mission was just painful, i gave up.

    i know it's not a hardware thing because i could run bfbc2 fine and skyrim gets 40 fps maxed out with additional graphics mods. bf3 on the other hand is completely unplayable.

    Edited:

    i also had invisible bad guys in the intro through some parts, i was kind of confused when a ghost grabbed my shotgun and got pushed out of the train.

    I have the same issue and performance with those games.
    I managed to make it somewhat playable by using the beta 12.2 drivers.

    If you find a good solution, let me know.
