    Learn the costume variations, it will be easier than going by color. I can instantly tell what class I am looking at from the opposite side all the time, helps to know what to expect... till the Sniper hits you with a shotty, thats the one that always gets me.

    Like kurgan said the costumes are your best bet because on some maps the difference is really not that recognizable or just look at your radar sometimes

    The more you play you can actually tell the difference in classes by their voice queues. Assuming you have a good sound setup. I've gotten to the point I can usually tell the class, weapon in use, and relation to my location with a few rounds fired and one or two queues.

    I do. I'm glad to say that no explosive projectile is better than 6th place in my weapons list.

    Thanks to all, some uniforms I still have to learn. The problem arises when not only my own team has those triangles above, but the enemy also after being marked.
    Indeed the map helps a lot.
    And this game really has no user manual? (Steam does not have) There are lots of symbols etc I have no idea of.

    Yeah BF games have always been sink or swim as far as instructions are concerned. You can always post a screenshot of any icons here and we'll help you best we can.

    My goal is to get plat on the M416, m16a2, and an-94 before anything else. I try to equip the 40mm SGN as often as I can. When I get the chance I always kill the medic carrying the M60 so I can waste their squad with it. It's a great weapon.

    xm8 has a lot more recoil then the top 3 listed, but i find that it has a very good ammount of dmg and a good burst fire, i prefer the m16a2 and m416 but for it being the 2nd or 3rd unlock its epic

    No not crazy. You just like a challenge maybe. The XM8 has the best iron sights in the game IMO. Using that gun with magnum and the extra grenade or extra magazine upgrade is a good move. Or you just haven't unlocked any of the real assault weapons yet. :rolleyes:

    M416 > XM8 x2

    I got gold star on the XM8 within a few hours of playing, and its taking me a fair bit longer to grab one for the M416, AN-94 and M16A2. I do play Assault less now, but in my quest to get a gold for every weapon I found the XM8 fit my style nicely. I think the Aug has been my best assault weapon though.

    I think you you're right. It's about about your shooting style. Personally I've gotten 50+ kills in a single round (HC and normal) with the top 3 assault weapons. My best rounds with the XM8 just can't compete with how I shoot with those guns. I really like red dot and IMO the XM8 handles like shit with that sight.

    I like the XM8 across all classes that get to use its variant. The only gun in the assault class that is crap to me is the F2000.

    I do my best to be balanced and get kills with many guns instead of just focusing on one. There are so many guns that are good for killing in this game.

    I haven't used the XM8 LMG so I can't comment on it. I like the XM8c more than the assault version though, probably due to the lower (read: nonexistent) recoil.

    Sad to see it go

    Well, Im sad to say, that I am selling my gaming rig so I can concentrate on my studies better. The VA pays for school and they are pissed at last semester's grades. :(
    So, unless my Laptop can play well, you wont see me for a long time.

    AK-74u for the WIN. The recoil of the XM8c is low, but not nonexistent. The Uzi and PP2000 have about the same low recoil, but the XM8c does much more damage than those two.

    Edit:

    I guess that makes you use a plain Rubber Ducky then. You should update your name. lol

    i don't put magum on LMGs normally (sometimes on the MG3). MARKSMAN LMG TRAINING works really well for all LMGs.

    Yep I keep the XM8 to burst fire.

    I have all the guns unlocked for all classes. While I like the M16, I just realized, that thing is flat out useless at range, and it's Iron Sights blow, got to use a Red Dot. AN-94 is a bit better at range, but still with the 2 round bursts and the kick long range just seems to be fail. And I hate the M416, don't like how it fires, don't like the noobtube sights, don't like the iron sights, I just can't stand that gun.

    I like the XM8 because like you said, great Iron sights, I then carry more tube power. And it actually seems to be competent at range (when burst firing).

    Exactly, I don't get why everyone feels the need to put Magnums on an LMG that has massive bullet damage already (except the MG3, that one does make sense), with the marksman training it allows you to just hold the trigger down when you want to if your good with it.
