    I've had a few frustrating knifing moments... to the point where I'm not going to even try knifing anymore.

    Such as knifing a prone person from behind... dam near impossible.

    Or even in one circumstance. Knifing a guy from behind while he is turning (Not even knowing i'm behind him) didn't work either. Till he heard me knife three times and then shot me...

    Also I think it takes like 4 hits with the knife to kill someone (in instances where it isn't an automated 1 hit kill).

    Btw I'm Nonlin

    Heh cool I had you on the Stinger a few times...

    Man I love mines. I owe my positive KDR to them for the most part. And in this game there aren't just the normal good hiding spots such as around corners and just beyond dips in the terrain but also can hide them very well amongst the rubble chunks of destroyed buildings.

    yea knife is borked,

    Digibucc watched me sneak up on a sniper and knife him 5 times in the back of the skull on a rush map, he turned and 1 shot me with the sniper rifle,

    I had no ammo for any weapons at the time so i physically had my knife selected and still nothing,

    people might bitch about BC2s auto lock on with a knife but it was far more satisfying and wasnt nearly as broken, as it is in BF3, only time knife seems to work on my end is with standing target,

    when an opponent is prone you have to crouch and then knife them
    when the opponent is crouched you can stand or crouch and knife them but for me niether of those work i have to have a fully standing target to knife them,

    just as wrigleyvillian he ran straight into my knife a few rounds back and it worked, go figure had he decided to crouch id have missed and he could have shot me full of holes.

    yes explosives perk lets you carry more,

    or again just have a support guy give you ammo boxes and lay 40+ mines, kinda cheap but you can basically mine every base on a map the way its set up right now. kinda makes me wish i played engineer and unlocked mines, id lay 40+ of the bastards then go back to support haha

    OK now I have another issue and so is my brother.
    It appears to be network lag, it stutters constantly when moving around!
    Our Network is UPC 25mb so that can't be an issue, I tried lowering the graphics to the lowest and that didn't do anything to the stutter!

    I really don't know what I'm supposed to do about this??
    Suggestions?

    stutter is more often caused by latency than bandwidth. ie 25mb means nothing. you can game on a 2mb if the lat is <100ms. if you are both using it at the same time, even if speed is no where near 25mb, you are increasing latency and therefore lag.
    Irish_PXzyan and MxPhenom 216 say thanks.

    yeah i was going to say that too, and also that the servers aren't very optimized i guess you could say quite yet.

    if its a 64 player server its why your getting the stutters, its a netcode issue on dice's end and they havent fixed it and no ETA on a patch, play on servers with 32-48 players and the stutter should stop,.

    We tried playing on a 64 player map and 32 and 16 and the same issue is there!
    Also tried just myself playing and it also still happened :p

    I've never had this happen in any game! I'm really not impressed! I've had this game since I lined up on release day and just keep encountering problem after problem and still have yet to have a game!!!
    Unreal!

    I hope a patch pops out soon and it solves my issue!

    That would be insane! Do the mines delete themselves when you die? Or do they stay there until reaction from a person or vehicle.

    Is anyone using a Joystick? I'm looking for one that would be great for BF3. Any suggestions, something that won't break my bank. I was looking at the Logitech Attack 3, is that good/compatible for the game?

    Yes they stay when you die and switch classes I think (tho need to test that) and I meant to ask about how many you can have deployed at once. If it's more than 5 or 6 it's an oversight I think and will probably change. BC2 was six. Lay a seventh and the one that's been down the longest disappears.

    I am thinking about upgrading to this one.

    It's similar to my Microsoft one just newer. And my Microsoft joystick is solid. works well

    I like the look of the 3D pro more then the other one you mentions. haha
