The difficult thing about trying to get the Squad Wipe ribbon is that it only counts if it's a squad of 4 and you must earn the bonus twice in the same round to get it. Given how people don't really stack squads in conquest and such, it's tough to get it there. Squad DM and Rush force people to be in squads, which makes it easier to earn. I only have 10 of that ribbon, but I mostly play Conquest.
Shot a harrier out of the sky with an RPG. Couldn't believe I pulled that shot off
Close enough a F35 is the Joint Strike Fighter, it's also VTOL like the Harrier
Yeah, whatever it was. I shot it out of the sky with a $#@!ing RPG. I lead it and everything. Wish I could record... because it was beyond epic
Why does Sharqi have helicopters in some rounds, but not in others? Same for Gulf of Oman. Sometimes the carrier is there and there are jets and choppers and sometimes there isn't.
conquest assualt will have 3 flags, all owned by the RU. Marines will have an uncappable spawn while the RU will not. this version of the maps will have fewer vehicles and fewer tickets, think it starts 250-200 but the Marines 250 tickets start ticking before the round even starts.
conquest will be the standard version of the maps, all vehicles and both teams will have an uncappable spawn.
fyi, if you are going for the jackhammer shotgun in the last "assignment" you need 10 kills in the BTR-90i which is ONLY found in normal conquest gulf of Oman... very $#@!ing annoying since even on the "BtK only" servers that version of Oman only comes up once every 2 times through the map list. so basically if you want the kills you have to camp the BTR and keep it operational or sit around and wait for it to respawn. that was the biggest pain I had in the assignments, i only spent 2 rounds in the actual map to get it, got 1 kill on the first map and then the other 9 on the 2nd time I was actually able to wait around long enough for the map to rotate through again. took probably over a week for me to actually land on the map.
Thanks. The sharqi conquest assault map I'm fine with because I like to snipe on it so I don't really miss the choppers. Gulf of Oman pisses me off because it's a really fun flying map.
Jumped on last night after a 3 week hiatus. My ping is ridiculous, as in, the lag is so bad it's unplayable.
I noticed this phenomenon back in December. At the time, it was unplayable during the day, but now it's in the evenings as well. Anyone else have the problem? I'm on PC FWIW.
Anyone got any tips for the sniper, I just started using it and can't hit $#@! with it.
Figure out the good spots on maps and don't move around much when you're at them. Stay away from the the tops of buildings because you'll standout against the skyline and be an easy target. Use the bipod as soon as you unlock it.
The first sniper is a real piece of $#@!. The SV98 is baller.
Also 200-400 meter shots are what you need to go after. They're relatively easy and worth a lot of points. Out past 500 or so meters, bullet drops stops being a reliable gauge for where to aim.
anything under 100 meters just put your crosshairs on the target.
this page tells you the rate of drop for all weapons, it also gives you the low down on every weapon in the game.
oh yeah and just to confuse you a little bit more, don't forget that their are 8x scopes on "Marines" rifles while only 7x scopes on "RU" rifles, then the 12x scope that unlocks. so the Mk11, M40A5, M98B, M39EMR and L96 all start with 8x scopes as default while the SVD, SV98, SKS and QBU88 start with 7x scopes.

I suck at this game.
gamer tag: EpicThunderBuns
Let's do this.
So i just picked this game up as an early birthday present from my wife (console, kinect, controllers, and 2 games)
What are the cliff notes for this 1275 post long thread...you know...tl:dr $#@!. Tips, Tricks, warnings...etc.
also, gt is dw611
The trick to playing sniper is don't use sniper rifles, use the assault rifles or semi-auto sniper rifles and play like normal. Snipers suck.
Play as a squad.
If you are support or medic, throw your god damn ammo/health packs down. I $#@!ing hate people that never use that stuff... running out of rockets and having your doofus support teammate stare at you like he has down syndrome irritates me to no end.
I always carry the grenade launcher as medic. $#@! health packs. Leave that to noobs who havent unlocked the grenade launcher.
I just got this game last night. I suck. No idea what I'm doing. I'll be playing pretty much all day, from about 2PM ATX time onward, on PS3. Tag is "M-U-N-C-H-l-E-S" no quotes. Please add and help me the $#@! out. I'm a good slave if you have a mic.
The I in MUNCHIES is a lower case L.
Just been playing assault class so far, and logged around 20 minutes online.
Just want to say the KH2002 is awesome. Definitely worth the 2-3 hours worth of Co-Op time to unlock all the weapons.
I think I saw you two running co op the other day. I've been trying to unlock my assignment weapons. I can't believe it's been so hard for me to get melee kills. I used to get them easy.
BTW, think we've played together a few times now. You're pretty good.
Yeah I need the stupid kill an enemy vehicle with a repair tool. We could probably find an empty map and just knock it out.
had a funny double whammy a while back, did my tactic above and as I was torching LAV the driver jumped out to repair but he "spawns" almost directly in my torches crosshairs. get the kill and the vehicle destruction.
that annoying truth out of the way, the QBZ is decent, I don't like the irons on it but it works well. honestly outside of the Famas' insane rof with foregrip cheapness most all of the other rifles and carbines are pretty close to each other.
bout the only weapons I don't like are... the svd... and maybe a pistol or 2. I've started down the path that I want a service star with every weapon possible even though I still need to get some single weapon up to 5 or more service star.
I don't like the L85A1, too much recoil to be useful.
Battlefield 3 is to get three themed downloadable expansions, starting in June. Like first add-on Back to Karkand, they will offer new weapons and in some cases vehicles to be used across the entire game, as well as new multiplayer maps.
In addition, console players are to get a rent-a-server programme that will allow them to run dedicated game servers customised to their own rules and preferences, just like their PC brethren. This is a first for any console shooter.
June's add-on pack is called Close Quarters and it's focused on up-close-and-personal indoor infantry combat with verticality to the map designs. It will be released one week early on PS3, and includes 10 new weapons and four new maps.
It's described as "hectic and intense". The map demonstrated at EA's GDC event was the interior of a swish-looking office block called Ziba Tower, with lots of glass to shatter.
The following add-on will be called Armored Kill. With a focus on tank combat, it will offer the Battlefield series' biggest map ever and one new drivable vehicle for use in the third game. It has no release date yet.
The final add-on will be End Game, about which nothing is known, and which is apparently still a closely guarded secret within developer DICE.
We'll have more info on Close Quarters soon
In for Close Quarters. Need a map where my PP can go wild.
Not interested in Armored Kill. At. All.
Meh I have a feeling that these new packs will end up like the BF2 addons, where there was slight interest for a week and then nobody played them.
Though I'll probably buy the closed quarters one if its between 10-15$.
So, I decided to start playing again.
Getting my ass repeatedly raped.
