    I cannot play SP on my cruncher for some reason. Maybe its due to using the copy folder method of install but when I try to start a SP game it loads the level the I get BF3 has stopped working box. I can play Multiplayer fine but SP is a no go.

    Dunno if im just crap at the game but i seem to die a lot from one hit kills and up close. Im finding it easy to get assists but the mouse feels weird and i had to tone down the sensitivity. Its going to take a while to get used to the mouse in BF3 for me personally; im using a SteelSeries Kinzu but i wish i had side buttons.

    Had to take a break from Skyrim. Only really had 2 or so hours on BF3 but im liking it if i can get the aiming down.

    The starting weapons are crap lol.

    Factors/Tactics Recon should remember

    Here are a few Factors the Recon class should remember.

    When sniping, there are 3 main factors to remember to get that head-shot or kill.

    1: Distance
    2: Time to Target (T2T)
    3: Elevation


    Distance: How far away the target is from you.
    Time to Target: How long it takes for the round to reach the target.
    Elevation: How far above or below you the target is.

    What got me off the ground was tanks then the stinger then mines before people had a lot of experience and unlocks. Though I caught on to the awesomness of the AA tanks a little late partly cause hard to get one.

    Factors and Tactics for Recon class to remember.

    1. You are not a Sniper. You are Recon.
    2. Your first priority is to the safety of your team, make sure they always know where the enemy around them are located.
    3. Kill people they don't/can't see or guys that are looking toward you.
    4. You should always be the last to move into flag.
    5. If you squad is wiped out, you should not engage unless you are 100% sure you can clear and neutralize the flag on your on. If there is a chance you cannot, relocate and wait for backup.
    6. Always remember to use the appropriate camo.
    7. YOU ARE NOT A SNIPER!

    Only problem is I didn't kill a single person with the mounted minigun on the chopper. I can spot the crap out of people though. :laugh:

    Well a close friend of my family's was shot and killed in my hometown yesterday by a bank robber and my Cali family is reeling in pain. What a fucking waste.
    The guy had nothing but hope for this hellhole and did everything he could to make it better just to end up going out like this.
    You want to love your place you were raised , but this City doesn't allow it. Rest in Peace Jim :(
    Having a problem playing shooting game tonight.

    Add: And if you're under lvl 30, you shouldn't play Recon :laugh:.

    I already maxed out my Engi and now im getting my 4th service star... I had to play Engi because all the tards thought they can kill tanks with bullets.

    It hurts me so much when a lvl 10 play Recon.

    Engineer is probably the best class to lvl up... Jesuz Christ... people should play Engineer more.

    EDIT: Check out my epic headshot at 286.92M (with the USAS12).

    You are correct. As I stated, you first duty is surveillance. The rifle is for clean up and killing people your squad can't/don't see. You are not helping anyone being a lone wolf out in the middle of nowhere important picking off one or two guys here and there. Your handful of long distance kills may get you decent points, but doesn't help your team one bit.
    MT Alex and cadaveca say thanks.
