    I hate sniping. In all games. It's so awful. I'm only doing this because I'm trying to clear all the assignments before BF4 comes out. Call it OCD.

    Good luck with that. Some are fun and forces you play creatively and try new things, others I don't even bother with. I don't have fun trying to get kills with EOD bots, and shh like that. Although, when I had to do that, I got it right away. Trolled a camping sniper. Instead of knifing him, I busted out the EOD. Got that assignment done on my first map.

    Some are ridiculous though, and for me fun reigns supreme. I don't have fun going 0-12 trying to get buggy kills for example. :wink2:

    Sniping can also be loads of fun if you set up in the right spots.

    General Sniping TIP: To not give away your position as a sniper, scan for enemies with your pistol drawn so that you don't emit that lense flare reflection off the scope so people can't spot you across the map. I draw my sidearm when vehicles are coming by (pointless if they have thermal vision), or if I am running from cover to cover, or when I am prone and in position as well. It helps, trust me so keep that in mind.

    I'm not looking forward to the EoD bot stuff. But I think it can be done on a TDM map like Noshahr Canals, because the snipers like to lay down T-UGS and radio beacons.

    Don't remind me...

    For me, the problem is the long-distance aiming. I can be stealthy. The problem is that I can't hit anything. :lol:

    I find sniping rewarding. So nice to get a marksman head shot from 100+ meters out on a horizontally running opponent. People ***** about long range snipers not contributing to the greater good, but well positioned snipers can do wonders for a team. I've predominantly played other classes though, but I get into my sniping moods from time to time.

    I think people complain about long-range snipers not contributing because when there's one, there's usually several, and that directly takes away from manpower at location-based objectives like capture points, MCOMs, and flags. Having several players not physically at objectives is equivalent to an extra player on the other team who might be at that objective.

    I agree with you on that. I've had some pretty good, effective play as the recon class, perched at a distance. I recall one moment, just recently. A teammate was advancing towards an objective when i spotted enemy infantry attempting to remove this guy's tags. Immediately, my teammate noticed and they began the infamous, dance in a circle while trying to shoot each other scene. I didn't want to TK my guy so I had to wait for the right opportunity. I let them dance for a couple seconds and i take the shot. I swear, the projectile missed my guy by a hair and nailed the enemy.

    I've actually seen a whole squad deployed as the Recon class. Now that, is pretty damn pointless. LOL.

    I see all-Recon squads all the time. If I'm in one, I'll go support and keep dumping broboxes next to them. Easy points.

    :lol: First time i've heard anyone use that..Hahaha.

    Been tryin to get my SPM up...i'm @ 298 right now. I've heard Medics are a good place to up your SPM, but wouldn't support be even better? I'm sure good teammates make a difference too. I always get put on a server where my team hardly even works together. Frustrating.

    I play well if anyone wants to add me on LIVE. "Soul Werks"

    You've never heard that name before? :lol: I use it all the time, have been since the game's launch. It's just so appropriate… "Here's a box, bro" became brobox.

    Dump broboxes. You basically have to shadow your squad but it works, unless they've become a bush monster with a 12x scope…

    Trying to get 5 multi kills for the Rambo assignment is one of the worst things ever. Ugh.

    Hey, can four of you guys stand together really closely so I can blow you up with C4 five times? :lol:

    So I was watching this series of videos called "Trolling dem noobs" and while definately hillarious, I feel that I picked up a few useful tips from those videos.
    Des, have you tried jumping in a buggy, loading it with c4, dropping it at a spawn point, run away, zoom in to the spawn and wait for 4 dudes to jump on?
    Worked for this guy lol

    Assignments should sync with your profile… at least, they do on the PC.

    :lol:

    I like to load C4 on a quad or jeep and ram it into enemy IFVs and tanks, but I've never done that before. Will have to give it a shot.

    Ramming with C4 was so much easier in BF2 for some reason.

    New hot trend is 2 person dirt bike team with passenger C4ing everything. Check youtube for BF3 dirt bike videos. Some are pretty funny.

    I'm sure that happens, but I haven't seen it on the servers I've been on… then again, I've been busy in team DM and vanilla conquest trying to get assignments. :lol: Just got the Pecheneg Proficiency assignment last night after getting my 25th C4 vehicle destruction.

    I don't think I'm going to get them all… the End Game assignments are borderline impossible unless you have a group of people helping you do it, and none of the aerials are going to happen as I suck at flying. But I can still get all the land-based stuff.

    Anyone interested in doing coop missions on the PC this weekend? I'd like to unlock the remaining weapons.

    I'm OK with you letting me get more points. :lol: I've only unlocked 2 stages so far. I have to play the air combat stage… which I hate, because I can't fly.

    If you guys want quick and easy coop points, just get to the last mission.

    First, complete the final mission so you can replay it.

    Then keep replaying it. But, quickly run through the mission until you get to the area where the bomb is on the subway cart, and just explode it. To get to that point it is very quick. You and partner can breeze through it. Then, by blowing up the bomb and losing, you still get enough points to make it worth your while. Then, rinse and repeat. Before you know it, you will get the process down to an instinct and rack up coop points round after round.

    They may have patched this, or make the required points to unlock the weapons more now because of this exploit, so it may not work still. Worth a try though.

    The problem is that I can't fly worth a damn, so I can't get past the second mission.

    I can't fly that great either but next time you see me online, hollar.

    I barely fly, or use any vehicle for that matter, but I do remember piloting that mission when I completed it (with another who was just as bad as me) so if I did it once, I can probably do it again.

    S'alright... I got my boss into the PC craze and we both ran through and unlocked all the coop weapons. :lol:

    I'll help you out if you want it though.

    I use the SweetFX injector. SMAA + color adjustment. The colors look nice without being excessively saturated, which is better than out of the box BF3, which attempts to look like Saving Private Ryan.

    1. Any effect on FPS?
    2. You don't get booted from servers due to Punkbuster and missing packets or anything?

    I never wanted to try this out of fear I would get booted from servers left right and center.

    1. If there is, I can't tell.
    2. Nope, have not been booted or banned from anything. I haven't noticed increased packet loss as a result either.

    Des, when you get a chance, could you post an in-game screenshot of what it looks like?
    Your game game I mean, with the color adjusted.

    The site I linked to already has screenshots and a video... what specifically are you looking for from me? I don't think I can give you anything that the site can't.

    I doubt it applies to anybody here at this point....
    But if you don't have Close Quarters, for whatever reason, you can have it for free by "activating" it on Origin.
    Code is BF3E3

    Big DICE blog outlining a lot of class system changes in BF4.

    Much more at the link. It looks like, rather than add more classes, they added class specialization. IMO this is a necessary evil due to the fact that consoles are the lead platform.
