    I like it, but I think forward knifing needs a little tweaking.

    Stuff people didn't seem to pick up from the beta:

    Bullets > Knife: I know this is a hard concept to handle in Battlefield considering Knifing being OP (BF2), unfair (2142), and both (BFBC2). In Battlefield 3, if you come at a guy with a knife and he can shoot at you, suppression will take effect and the knife target lock does not work in suppressed mod. If you were trying to forward knife a guy for whatever reason and it didn't work, it was not bugged.

    Second scenario is if you see a friend get put in the hold position prior to the actually throat slitting, you can shot the enemy off of your buddy and save him some embarrassment. This is kinda hard to pull off if both are standing as the animation for a standing knife kill is about 1.25 seconds (guessing). The animation for pulling someone from prone or crouching addes about another 1.5 seconds. You now know that you can save your friends as I have done it twice, so please don't stand there and watch me die before you shoot the guy.

    What does this mean. People like Kurgan, TimSad, and other knife happy people will have to stop. BF3 favors people like me who only shank. As I am bias I will only suggest you use the knife to either embarrass a specific person, or just to be stealthy in a situation.

    P.S. Chat works for wounded people, not dead people. So if you stab a guy, he will not be able to text chat to his buddies about their impending ownage.

    I found to be buggy for me,I use num pad 1 key for melee and i have to hit it twice for the animation of dog tags to kick in.Also notice a slight stutter when the animation kicked in,I just left as a beta bug that is probably already fixed.

    Shameless gaming organization plug

    3MD, we've been around since the BF1942 days, we follow the typical clan organization using military ranks but its a fairly loose and laid back group. Were a legal entity who is also hosting the first Tactical Gaming Convention in 2012, this will be attended by game developers and groups in the community.

    http://3rdmd.net/index.php?action=forum

    Lot of prior, and current military and the occasional 16-40 year old gamer just hangin out playing ArmA2 and should have a 0-Day BF3 server... If your interested in a BF3 spot PM me on here, I'm in charge of recruiting there. We also offer positions within the group that are PAID POSITIONS.. Not talking big bucks, but were organized enough that we do compensate the people who put time in.

    I just ordered the Thermaltake Frio this morning and I plan on doing some research into overclocking. You're totally right. I have the board and processor for it, and it does sound to me like there might be some serious bottlebecking going on, or perhaps just overheating, either way it couldn't hurt. Once I get this cooler installed I'll report back with my results.. I hope they're positive results!

    I vote in favor of throwing C4 20-30 feet with practice. I think in BC2 throwing C4 was completely legit. It wasnt the easiest thing to do in the game and being able to rain explosives on a vehicle from a rooftop was fun.

    They got rid of that in bf2 with a patch if I remember correctly because it was unbelievably annoying.

    I'm running the Frio on the same chip and a microATX and have it clocked @ 3.7 and runs nice and cool. With the board I have I won't push it any highers and smoke vrm's.

    meh if i wanted nerfed knifes and the inability to throw c4 id join the army. and get shot at by real bullets its a game somethings are better left unrealistic for fun factor,

    and im not talking about chucking C4 20 feet like you can in BC2

    but id like a good 4-5 feet

    instead of litterally dropping it at my feet

    altho rarely my soldier does throw it a few feet in front but i had to be prone for that to work. felt awkward.

    oh and yea the Ump is super OPed

    went from 196 SPM to 250 spm after 3 rounds with an Ump + red dot

    Don't you dare start bitching about the knives too. The knifing in this game is PERFECT.

    no its not perfect

    animations are slow as fuck

    using a knife to cut through a fence etc the animation goes takes a second or 2 for the enviroment to respond to said action let you through lol


    i do like the fact you have to crouch to knife a prone enemy, but it is rather stupid to be right behind someone knife them 3-4-5 times and have it not take, even when standing right on top of them,

    just feels slow and cumbersome, I like what they brought to the table in terms of ideas dont like how its currently executed.

    then again i guess i should be happy that im less likely to get knifed by TPU members since i just shoot you in the foot and you cant lock on anymore lolz

    Dry knifing is slow as hell. Trying to get through a fence is a short wait and in the process you usually get shot down.

    Ugh.. knifing fences has gotten me killed in this beta so many times... Fences in general seemed buggy, but when you knife one and it only opens up a tiny hole and your the dumbass sitting there trying to find the perfect spot to spam spacebar and crawl thru... Or when cutdown fences can only be run thru if you go right in the middle or spam spacebar... ugh

    Fences - 130491248
    Me - 0

    hahaha agreed with the above its dumb

    altho in all honesty i died more from getting stuck on random shit then fences

    the little 6 inch limp of the curb on the side of the road

    the top of the stairs at the gas station

    piece of rock in the middle of the road.


    my favorite all time way to die throw a grenade watch it go 20 feet then teleport back to me and stick to a blade of grass.....

    I have had that happen many times. On hardcore that is going to be a major issue with null grenade indicators...
