    Rush is linear, however inside the Metro you have different paths and such. I usually take a path and backtrack down another path, and the silenced weapons have a great time just killing people before they know what is happening.

    One thing i want to hear you comment about is the knife. Seems to be slow to knife when others are around, which is the big problem for me. I seldom use it.

    Also I forgot to mention how important the fire mode selection is. I switch as I move into different areas, IE switch to single to engage far targets, auto for close combat, pretty much common sense, but if you get in the habit you don't realize you are doing it and you play REALLY well.

    Knifing is horrible, but I think it's what they intended. They probably heard too much about one guy just Rambo knifing. So they made the animation long, if you run across a guy solo, use it, but if you even think anyone else is there, just pass and gun them down. At least thats my opinion.

    I like the strategy you use when on Defense in the metro area, but a lot of the times when you move forward clearing, then start looping back and clearing it gets you shot in the back since people are constantly flooding in. It's a risk, but it can pay off big time if you know they are pushing in a decent sized group.

    Do your thanks come in a few $20's?

    What is dynamic sidearm switching, Caboose? Can't figure that out. Doesn't sound like 'realism' either.

    I also have a tip: shoot even if you are not sure, like when they use the torches or are covering. I get killed tons of times while perfectly covered.

    Yeah the hit boxes seem retarded. I have been killed by people I know are there, but they aren't in my line of sight. It seems if a bullet passes within a foot of your body you get so scared you hurt yourself. Enough of these and you just die. Numerous times I been hiding in rocks bullets flying over my head and I'm dieing.

    Gives a new meaning to the saying "being scared to death". Self inflicted death? I was so scared I killed myself instead. :roll:

    I got a book coming. :D

    It's Mailmans secret identity. When he takes off his troll mask, he puts on some glasses and blends back into the real world as Reayth. And somehow no one is ever the wiser.

    I knew he had connections to Cthulu in some way. It sounds like a Lovecraftian name.

    I hit it with a tank shell in that round and nothing happened, but I was a ways out. I never tried hitting the building under it with anything. But I'm assuming that would be the only way to drop it, if I get in later today I'll give it a shot.

    Hey Recus, I read that earlier and thought: all those that swear by "60 FPS or nothing" will have to spend their cash to play it their way.
    But I may say it is supersilky at Ultra 1900x1000 all the time, on a stock 470 and overclocked i5... strange...
