    I think the LMGs just kick as a whole way too much. Going against any other kit while both moving, LMG just doesn't stand a chance. I hate prone and camping as well, I was trying Foregrip + Laser Sight, but it just didn't impress me, 3 round bursts at medium range are still far too inaccurate. Like you said it usually takes a whole clip to kill a dumb sniper. But anyone that moves when they get hit with a single bullet, it's basically impossible to kill at long range with the LMG unless you are using a bipod. So my strategy is to fire a few shells over their head for suppression effects, then to try and get the bipod setup.

    And I'm not saying I disagree with what you did in the hallway, just saying it seemed like you were saying "who needs to camp" then listed where you were camping, so I had to say something. The maps right now all together are too prone to camping, so there isn't much that can be done about it.

    And for the large maps, it's not that I'm playing it wrong, it's that the kit as a whole just doesn't feel as competent as Engineer or Recon. Engineer because Rockets + Mines are great and they now have Carbides so they are pretty great at range. And Recon because they are as good as it gets when it comes to camping and long range. I also am not happy with how C4 works, if you are able to rush a tank on a large map like that, they are bad. I have seen very little tanks move up close to a building, they usually cap away from the building and shell it. The few vehicle kills I did manage with C4, then knew I was there, I ran up on the tank, the top gunner started firing at me, so I crouch and plant me C4, then I have to suicide, because if I run away I'll just get shot in the back and waste the C4 planted.

    Always has been, but especially is now with the harsher damage model.

    How many hits from a rocket does it take to destroy a tank?

    PC platform development for BF3 was switched to console mid-production.

    I saw that earlier. I chose to ignore it. :D

    It was the Founder that did it. We have had a bunch of people join who aren't even part of this forum it would seem. Go to link below and add yourself and reapply to platoon please.

    Huh?

    Damn I can't yet find a stats graphic that shows vehicles destroyed-at present my most noteworthy achievement at 226-except for the coop score one. Though I may just be missing it. That thing is kind of hard to browse and all don't even appear (though those have 0 hits and may be placeholders at this point).

    Thats easy. I don't like having crosshairs, and a limited hud to me is better. I don't care for spotting, I absolutely HATE 3rd person view while in vehicles. It's totally lame IMO to be able to see whats going on around your vehicle at all times. I don't like friendly fire with the normal mode either. if I shoot a team mate I expect them to die (not that I would on purpose). I prefer killing and being killed more quickly. Pumping a clip into someone to kill them is not my idea of fun. I feel that to do well in hardcore mode one must learn to be more tatical. I think it takes a bit more skill to be good in hardcore Vs normal. (Not implying that I'm that good though). There are more reasons I'm sure that I'm just not thinking about right now...

    I'll play normal mode from time to time. I don't mind really I just wouldn't play it full time.

    Do you guys know if you get some sort of "platinum" star like in BC2 after getting 1k kills with a weapon? Because I have over 1k kills with the AEK-971 and nothing happened.

    Do you just keep getting silver stars?

    Fair enough though sounds like you'd generally prefer ArmA or Project Reality or some shit like that.

    Actually I quite enjoy those games but I have always loved the battlefield series. Played them all and consider the faster pace much more fun. BF3 is simply awesome. I wish I had more time to play.

    Do vehicles have weak spots? I'm pretty sure Tanks do in their rear. C4/Rocket placement may have a lot to do with it.

    To the chap that likes hardcore. One word to defend that stance.

    MORTAR

    They do my head in. Sometimes literally. Mortar spamming a battlefield full of friendlies (because you know they cant die) is worse than having pictures of Michael Jackson on your wall.

    That being said - i've not played HC on BF3 yet. Preferred it on BC2 though.
