    I've had some fun rounds with Ass Death when he wasn't camping.

    The round that was most fun was hearing him hollering at his friends not to throw weights on the floor at midnight, or maybe the time his drunk buddy was going off about covering his face in "waffle sauce." :laugh:

    I remember that! I was almost in tears when they said "waffle sauce".

    Needed a break from online gaming. Still kinda down about it. Mid-life crisis I think. Kinda emo about everything I guess. QQ.

    I don't want to mingle in this discussion about teamplaying but when you talk about a recon camping isn't that what's playing recon is about? I mean your pretty vulnerable if you go walking around without having any backup.
    Yesterday i played the map with that big antenna. There was a sniper sitting on top of it. He took me out a couple of times. Grabbed a jet and plunged it on top of him. Problem solved.

    I thought that dude was married with a kid (used to have an avatar with a baby on his lap). I may have him mixed up with another user.


    I know what that shit is like. Hey for my own "we are all still clueless newbs now and then" moment today--I still have no idea in hell what QQ stands for.

    Recon is short for reconnaissance. The whole idea is to be BEHIND enemy lines doing......reconnaissance. Killing people from behind. Setting up spawn points. Not to swing from another mans nuts but Highway does it right.

    However in BF3 people seem to think recon means sit at a capped flag near deployment and take pop shots at distant moving pixels hoping for an "EPIC HEAD SHOT".

    I have been here for a very very long time . I some times do not know what all the acronyms mean but it doesn't mean I am stupid . I can't keep up with all the games nor do I . This is the Battlefield 3 thread ( BF3 ;) ) MW3 is one I had no clue about . I know now :D . I can fling dirt with the best of them as well . I can take it and dish it out just as good . :twitch:

    I thought he had a kid too, same reason - avatar.

    QQ can be commonly misconceived. It looks like crying eyes so people think it means "go cry" or "Quit Qrying" but a mate tells me it comes from WoW, where you press Alt+Q+Q to ragequit (or quit as rq'ers call it :p) :laugh:

    True, but EA/DICE dont make it easy to ignore the fact that your primary weapon selection under Recon is Sniper Rifles meant for Long Range such as M40, L96, M98B etc. Making it very tempting and easy to snipe.

    I am not an all the time team player by any means, but I am not a lone wolf all the time either. When I find that i am dying alot when running and gunning, I like to post up and pick off people approaching one location or another. these days I prefer to run and gun but when I get on a server with a Prone dick, and he is damn near untouchable, I switch to my recon kit and try to pick him off until he stops sniping then go back to running and gunning.

    Playing with some one Months ago does not equal current times. Mailman, I played with the SV98 alot as I was trying to unlock things for it as well as Plat it. After I platted it, I moved on to other weapons like DAO-12 and G3A3/A1 whatever.. I also use the M416 and now the P90. If you doubt my style of play, hop on sometime. im rarely on TS as no one else is there when Im on so I forgo communication when possible.
    Most of this started when I stated that Modern Warfare 3 blows.

    as to my Avatar, that was my nephew.

    Oh I see. Yeah Recon gets a sniper rifle because what else are they gonna have to really differentiate them? Though, as this is a teamplay-centered game first and foremost, the devs do make an effort to design and present the class as being more forward and not hiding in the bushes with their main weapon. Surely this is also a reason why they did not even include a ghillie suit this time. And in addition to the general help that any player provides by simply being around their squad as opposed to off on their own behind a scope the Recon can be a quite formidable force on the front lines when done right by a skilled player, as Mailman pointed out.

    (lmao when Googling ghillie suit to confirm the spelling I found this--)

    Yeah I went through that 10 years ago. Now I just stay home and twittle my thumbs and drink to much:D
    I played this for about a month and got the urge to quit gaming though. It was out of frustration
    I think more then age. My K/D still sucks, but I'm getting good unlocks and ranking up now so it
    makes the K/D pain easier to deal with. Plus I like trying different approaches. I have lately been
    using the UMP and C4'ing tanks. Pretty fun ! I die a lot , but get satisfaction watching
    the tanks explode :roll:

    My request has been sent. It will be from Idaho49ers

    My point exactly, now i still snipe but I actually prefer to run around with either an SMG as recon or put a Holo sight on the rifle for quick shots. especially when Im trying to get a plat with it but still be of use to teammates. I still prefer the DAO-12 out of all the weapons except for the G3 and the P90 so far. There is something abouit that shotgun that is satisfying. :D

    I'm a few thousand point away from unlocking USAS-12 - now there's something satisfying about that shotgun! It's such a noob weapon, I can't wait :laugh:

    Yeah there is a lot of "noob hate" towards that weapon...be prepared to hear whining and maybe even get kicked. Meh, it's part of the game and has it's place as far as I'm concerned like all the included weapons.
