    Wow

    I played a half round last night and was lagging so bad I couldn't make one kill. People would Pop up right in front of me out of no where. Finally went to medic and got a little accomplished. Still got so aggrevating I quit. It was squad death match too so I was more of a hinderance then help. If it isn't that I get kicked for to high of a ping. Has any one else been having network issue's as of late ? This started right after I made my latest build. I know I have heard it has to be my ISP, but the timing is just to strange. :wtf:

    Yesterday was a pretty crappy BC2 day, but today I been rowing through the corpses, Usas + extended clip + C4 is stupid, never ever played that combo before, but I just wreck with it.

    Yeah man, I've been rocking the usas-12 with the extended clip and ammo on medic class lately and it can be soooo overpowered. I'll have to give it a go on recon.

    Yeah, I normally play on Euro servers with Marineborn, and I never been fond of the auto shottys, the 1 shot shottys can be fun, but with 225 latency it's really noticeable, I don't have issues with bullets, but the buckshot just his horribly off. But he told me to give the extended clip a shot with the Usas, and it's just retarded, makes me feel like if I keep using it I will all together forget how to aim.

    The USAS is a beast in the right hands and even for noobs it's bound to get a few kills (crazy :rolleyes: )

    screw you Triptex lol my kill / death average is moving up average lately has been a 1.35 and climbing and i dont even use the USAS, i use Saiga 20k mofo, same clip size semi auto if you click fast enough it fires faster and has higher damage per shot then USAS. USAS is good for noobs that cant time there shots and have alot of oh shit moments where full auto is good for them.

    40mm SGN is where it's at. Now I'm on the F2000 + Mag + 40mm SGN + extra 40mm rounds.

    I don't use a mic and I have incoming voice chat disabled in the options.

    I can play this game for hours on end, extremely addicting. I've run into TPU members after massively long game sessions at all hours.

    TPU is not a clan in the same sense as you see most other clans in-game. A lot of other clans aren't organized tightly either, so you aren't alone. I like reading the latest on PC tech myself, hence my registering for the forums here. The GPU reviews are the best here IMO. TPU hasn't spammed noob rage against me yet in-game and I've run into several members on the servers. Congrats.

    I played the leader on the BFBC2 leaderboards, hard to kill and he had a 4/1 K/D ratio close to every round. Tried to get his tags but he knew I was after him and would run to cover every time I got near him. Got into a massive flame war in the chat box with his clan mates but he stayed out of it. He is in the s3^ clan IIRC.

    No scoping with recon rifles is an artform.

    Glad I platted all my SPECACT kits already.

    Mines are nice to use, actually get a lot more kills with them per a round than using a launcher. Will be cool working towards plat with those.

    I have to use the rapid reload shotties per the wretched hit detection. Pisses me off when people one hit kill me @ full health with the 870 MCS or similiar shotties from many many meters away and it takes me 3 head shots about 1-5 meters away. 870 type shotties will be hell to plat for me.

    Try one of the 5000 tix Heavy Metal servers if you want a massive score at the end of the round. I'm plat in all vehicle types, so I prefer to blow them up rather than spam them on the vehicle maps at this stage. I'm one of the better helo pilots, so I won't hesitate to jump in one if I see a use for it. Same with a tank. Can't wait to practice jets in BF3.

    I suspect BFBC2 with all DLC will be on sale this week on Steam during the week long EA, sale. If you don't already have it, watch Steam this week. I would be surprised if Vietnam and SPECACT didn't go on sale with BFBC2 at last. This is about the time when I believed the DLC would be on sale at last but man did I get a massive amount of gameplay out of the DLC already. Getting BFBC2 for about $5 was really really sweet. Probably will be that price this week again. I don't have inside info, that is my educated guess.

    Never knew I would play this game to 50 and beyond. Still a ton to accomplish in this game past 50. I still pause and take in this game, how nice it looks and sounds on my PC.

    Saiga and USAS have precisely the same stats, including rate of fire. Split second difference in reload time, USAS being fully auto, and the different gun images are literally the only differences. Everyone uses Saiga over USAS cuz of the bar being slightly longer in game. I'll plat Saiga when I get to it. Have my hands full plating the Vietnam weaps as well.

    My K/D ratio was in the toilet when I was grinding for the insignias, especially the 100 M-COM stations (dear lord that was suicide on a grand scale), but has been climbing non-stop since I earned them all. I will be @ 1/1 if I stick with it.

    Can't wait to plat 40mm shotty so I can go back to 40mm nades which are already plat. Hitting someone at long distance with 40mm nades either in default BFBC2 or Vietnam is freaking epic. My record for most kills with one 40mm nade is 3 and that occured in Vietnam.

    F2000 will be the last assault rifle I plat in default BFBC2 for a reason. Correction: It will be the second to last assault rifle I plat, everyone's favorite for no justifiable reason whatsoever will be my last.

    Quick question. Do shotguns with slug rounds have bullet drop? I seem to be hitting people pretty well with those slugs at a distance.

    All bullet types have bullet drop in this game. Any type of projectile at all in this game has bullet drop. Tracer darts are the only projectile that has almost no bullet drop. Pisses me off people 1-hit killing me at full health and at long range without slugs in their shotties.

    Pretty sure they have the same stats. But something about the Usas and just holding it down on a group of huddle up people makes my day. I have to change my playstyle with that gun, I'm normally midranged, but that gun I get right in the shit, and just go ape on people.

    Nope, equip slugs, they didn't do trajectory for buckshot, so slugs do have it either. If you get good they are an insane sniper rifle.

    Nope, Slugs have no drop, it's one of those widely known secrets. No sound in this video, but watch the range and how he doesnt even aim up to account for drop.

    either way ive used shotguns extensively with about 101 hrs spent using just shotguns,

    Saiga has far better results in game for me, in most situations im in its the better gun. then the USAS,

    and correct slugs have 0 drop

    slugs + magnum = 1 hitter quiter long range if you good if your not good you can use a saiga 20k or USAS with slugs + magnum find a nice spot and pick ppl off as well.

    I've used slugs once or twice max hence my not mentioning them as having no bullet drop.

    They've had the exact same stats since the game was released. I'm equally proficient with both. I'm working on platting USAS first cuz it is nicer to fire and forget and not press the left mouse button repeatedly.

    Not a fan of shotties per the detestable hit detection. I'm stuck with them if I want all 75 plats unfortunately.

    well i look at my stats and overall i play far better with a saiga then i do a USAS 12, amd yea hit detection has always been terrible theres alot of reasons that compound the problem and make it worse

    example

    actualy 3D model of a soldier vs First person view, say someones in a window shooting out on his screen his gun clears on yours it dosent basically what matters is the 1st person view the 3d soldier you see is just a general target even at close range i have to hit the very crown of there heat to get a heatshot to register, as far as spotty hit detection thats due to the latency checker, that tries to even out the gameplay aka make it smooth and in that regard it works but in making things smooth it screws with hit detection. overall just a pain in the ass and it will continue with BF3 as well.

    saiga and USAS do have different damage, but the difference is negligible in-game.

    slugs are murder at any range.

    nah slugs dont hit as hard at close range ive noticed it fairly often that even at close range aka 25-30 feet a shotgun with no slugs the spread still has the shots miss on a few but overall hits harder then a slug round, that said slug rounds have better change for a headshot = death. slugs tend to be more effective per shot after about 35-40feet.

    Already mentioned the bar differential. It isn't accurate. I'm basing my statements off the most recent data available and necessary.

    Slugs at close range seem to do tons of damage, but it doesn't feel like it's any greater than a well placed buckshot round.

    Thats all he was asking about was slugs, and you said all projectiles have bullet drop :p

    Yeah you guys confused me at first. Yes there is drop, no there isn't!

    It definitely didn't feel like slugs did and I knew about the tracers.

    Thanks though! I'll be playing this weekend again probably shottying it up with some slugs :cool:
