    Yeah such would make sense but as we know that wasn't the case in BC2. Hmm multiple whacks you say? I have been fairly low on eject I guess but more than 100 feet up.

    In other news the general consensus seems to still be "all GPU" at 108P and above but Render.perfoverlayvisible 1 shows my CPU well below my GPUs (min of 2.5-5 depending on map and like min 40 for GPU) and I am kind of surprised. I plan to test with a higher overclock than 4Ghz though Im only gonna be able to squeeze out a few more hundred Mhz max so idk. HT does not cause stutter for me but it also didn't seem to help the min despite showing activity on multiple cores.

    Curious what others think and/or are finding with this. Maybe should have it's own thread or I could hijack that dude's one re. stuttering. :)

    you can't use the parachute as soon as you eject/fall/drop. there are two parts to the animation, one where momentum is high and your arms/hands are up and you are out of control falling, you cannot deploy it then. after that your hands will lower into a regular falling animation, then you can deploy the chute.

    one hit works fine, it just needs to be during the second animation. hitting it as soon as you eject/fall/drop will not work 90% of the time as the momentum puts you into the out of control fall.

    Gotcha. I have noticed it doesn't work at high velocity, like when you exit a plane/heli that is careening sideways, I guess that's why.

    Also, just played on a Grand Bazaar map with only 3 conquest points, A, B, and C. It felt incomplete.

    I shouldn't even need to dawn my suit and cape, you should realize you are posting something old that is no longer true, using your own words "in reality" you posted old footage that doesn't matter anymore.

    And once again with my magical power..... it's a video game, not real life. You can thank me later.

    Yeah I played an Operation Firestorm like that. I don't think I could play this game on consoles, the small maps would just kill it for me.

    agreed, in BC2 you could easily jump off a small cliff/off a building and ur chute would almost always open up, whereas in BF3 it doesnt seem to work as well >_<

    thirded.....My chute only seems to deploy only when im like 3 inches from leaving a red sticky mess on the floor. it comes up and i rise for 1inch as it slows me down and I literally 'bounce' off the floor then the chute dissapears and I take about 8-10% damage.

    I haven't had any issues, but we got cards from different camps. Might be best to check the forums on battlelog and see if any other NV users have had that issue.

    Another problem i seem to be having with the game is shock paddles - They just dont seem to work half the time.

    I see a team mate get hit and i do a dolpin dive and try to revive him. but im only he floor shocking him for like the 5th or 6th fucking time before he respawns and the same dude that killed him, comes and kills me while im still trying to revive him.


    Shock paddles dont work if youre standing up.
    Shock paddles ONLY work and work randomly when youre crouched or prone.

    Ive acutally raged 2 games because the shock paddles worked 1 in 10 times when i tried to revive team mates and it annoys me so bad

    I just played a round where the same two idiot teammates kept killing me because they can't figure out the blue triangle over my head means I'm a friendly.

    I think once the skull disappears you cant revive after that.

    Yeah I and others are finding similar inconsistencies with knifing as well and not sure if by design (e.g. more difficult in the name of being more realistic and requiring more skill than BC2 as this game is supposed to generally) or if bugs.

    I had next to no issues. Browser plugin update later, now I got random crashing and disconnects.

    I heard about that situation and the total disregard for hostage safety.

    Im so glad you guys changed the server so a few people can practice in vehicles and such. Its given me the opportunity to help people learn the basics of flying jets and what not.

    Good game Alex and REAYTH, you guys got the upgrades to get started and are getting better.

    Yeah, it was really helpful, and I got my controller mostly the way I like it. I just wish the gun had a floating piper, and that I had more moves than just flying around in a huge circle until I find something:laugh:

    The PDW-R is the best Person Defense Weapon hands down. The extended mag brings the magazine up to 30+1 in the pipe. It is stable, decent stopping power fair accuracy up to mid-range, and shots very fast.

    Second is the UMP-45, then MP7.

    The P-90 shoots wild at full auto and has little stopping power. It is ok at close range and/or in closed corridors. Do not fire it on single shot mod as it will take 9 to 11 shots to kill someone. Plenty of time for them to move out of the way or kill you back.

    The black camo is called Spec Ops Camouflage and it is at rank 42.
