The new maps summarised in a single .gif
Just saw the trailer. Still optimistic about the Close Quarters pack. Infantry combat is a blast in BF3, just needs some solid maps behind it.
If I'm getting Close Quarters, it's gonna be for the weapons only.
The video showed a pump action version of it.
To be honest, we have too many semi/full auto shotguns, another pump action only shotgun would be nice.
I'm watching some of my older beta gameplay videos... and to be honest, it looks like the game worked better in beta than it does now :/
BC2 had a pump action spas12.
Also, I think it would be nice to be able to avoid rockets like this
On top of flares and ECM, so if you're getting lit up by 5-6 guys with AA missiles you could still possibly get away.
fyi - the Battlelog groups are... FULL. We're going to need someone to make #5
oh, im late.
We don't really need them, we never even use them for anything other then representing that we are from FP.
I really despise spawn campers of any sort so i get revenge tenfold.
Rush kharg island 8 v 8 150 tickets. both teams started of pretty even in terms of skill / rank and it was a fairly good match, untill we took the 2nd set of mcoms then all of a sudden it was me and 7 below 30's verses 8 colonels +. As per fucking usual it ended up with my team being spawn camped unable to get out of the petrol station.
Their jet was the main cause of this as he was obliterating our tank / amtrac as they spawned, to cut this part short, the enemy team ended up inside our spawn fucking about and stealing our tank and i could not counter everything on my own.
at this point it went down to 6 v 8, while i was causing them a load of problems it was utterly pointless.
I did try and take out their jet and while i'm not a bad pilot, this guy was one of these people that lives in the sky. Throughout the game this ass was bosting his ego by taking down our jet and helicopter near enough the second they took off.
I will cut this short. with about 20 tickets to go my team finnaly got some high ranked players to counter the bull shit.
one of them lured their jet over the boat AA where i was waiting to rip him a new one, which i did.
I then got in the heli, flew over to their base and just spawn camped his ass all the way to victory. Or rather till a team mate spawned on me an stole the jet, i then went and fucked their entire team with the heli for the remainder of the game allowing us to win.
I don't like doing this, but if im on the receiving end of it and the tables turn, i will happily return the favour.
The Spas 12 is typically fired in semi-automatic, the pump action is for LTL rounds that don't have as much propellent and so can't be automatically cycled as easily.
In any case it'd be cool to get both.
watched it again, if that's pump that's a fast ass pump
Conquest 64 on tiny CoD size maps? Are you kidding me? that's horrible and just a massive spawn-die fragfest.
Finally got the F2000.
One of the best guns that I've used so far.
I'm pretty sure they are.
For the SPAS-12, the Buckshot and Flechette shells should be semi-auto, while the Slugs and Frags are pump.
I could kinda see that being fair. You give up some fire rate for a better accuracy, range and damage combo. or give up some fire rate for better crowd control, higher damage and explosive damage.
No you'd give up damage for effect.
Seriously, a dragon's breath shotgun round wouldn't do shit to an armored soldier unless you hit exposed skin.
I wonder how many people would play Metro if the game didn't have unlocks.
Nobody because that would mean no M320, shotguns or 1000rpm assault rifles.
Who says ramming is cheap?
(about 34 seconds in)
I want that shotgun.. I love shotguns.
Here's the official weapon list
AUG Assault Rifle
SCAR Assault Rifle
M417 Sniper Rifle
JNG-90 Sniper Rifle
L86LSW Machine Gun
LSAT Machine Gun
M5K Tactical Machine Pistol
ramming a tank up against a wall then firing tank shells into their bellies is fun though (
My BF3 just updated through Origin when trying to join a game. It was only about 50mb. Any ideas what it is?
