M4A1/Suppressor/ACOG/Vert Grip = Win.
Looking at your stats I see you have only used the 1st LMGs, I moved past those, I might have to try them out. But the PKP 3 burst firing only 1 of those bullets is going to hit your intended target. M249 you might get lucky and land 2 as it has less kick.
It's surprising your SPM has gone down, seems everyone has high SPM in BF3, more points for doing actions. There are numerous East Coast servers up, I seen NJ servers all the time, my connection seems fine all the way across the US. But I don't know what net you got, so hard to compare.
can someone help me please.i joined the TPU platoon but i cant figure out how do i see who is playing and join them ?
if you are in Battlelog, up top there is Platoon on the menu. Click that then you will see Techpowerup, click that and now you see the platoon, if you want to see the member list, click that on the left side. If their icon is surrounded in green it means they are on Battlelog, you will have to click each person and see if they are playing or not.
OK but i cant find how do join them...or is that even possible?
If you click on their name to see their profile, if it shows an option to join their game, then they are playing. If it doesn't, then they aren't playing.
ok thanks there are people logged in but i guess nobody is playing,i try later again when you bastards wake up in the US
I die to the M249 a lot, but I prefer the starting LMG's because they are essentially the same thing as the Assault Rifles but with larger clips. I rarely use bursts at all because to be honest, spraying is just as accurate in this game, and with the amount of recoil bursting produces after the 2nd shot you're screwed.
This is how much I care about snipers =) ASSAULT MASTER CLASS.
Feel free to add me btw.
If anyone thinks they are a good player here, then here is your benchmarks
One day when I grow up and get big and strong I will reach 2.6 million SPM, you just wait!
I'll have to try spraying, realistically that shouldn't work well for sniping, so I guess I have just stopped myself from doing it.
Hacked servers lol go to the weapons section five buck says they have 1 million kills with 45 mns of play .And you wonder why DICE banned those guys hahaha
Yep, all hackers, top guy I think had 5.5 million kills, didn't look at the rest.
Its time for a new PC cause I keep dying from lockups all the time. Game works ok untill there is a sound being played then my PC locks up for a sec. That damn that Forex and USD/PLN exchange rate lately. By example i2500K went from 710PLN up to 860PLN within a week.
the UMP-45 is retardedly OP. To the point where its more powerful then assualt rifles. in most cases it takes only 2 hits from a UMP-45 (or less depending on the fucked up hit detection) to kill you at 100% HP
It has been well noted that the SMG's are ridiculously powerful in BF3. They definitely need some nerfing to be balanced.
I think the SMG line is fine. its more to do with individual guns.
Also one thing i hate about the beta -- the stardard AK47 is WEAK
all weapons are retarded weak until lyou unlock every god damn thing with that weapon 10 hrs later. then its semi decent lolz
and Kurgan my net is 18mbps down 512kbps up shouldnt be a problem its overall distance
say i join on you or highway or erocker most of the time the server is west coast
thats 2600 milles 1 way for client side detection to work right it travels from whomever im shooting at to the server back to the client then back to the server
so when im shooting someone its multi trip 2600 1 way 5200 back again just on MY end not counting client packets from whom im shooting at to the server
say they are in maine as well thats 10400 miles before all the info is processed then whomever is left alive that info has to be sent back to the server again resulting in another 2600miles for 13000 miles round trip before a bullet hit registry is detected considered good then delievered back to the person in real time
for BC2 its 5200 + 2600 for 7800 total miles round trip now granted yes other servers closer to me are not nearly as bad but the problem persists mostly just from how its set up to much handshaking for get the information needed,
the way its setup right now is actually worse then if the matches were hosted on a persons machine much like Call Of Duty there matchmaking is currently superior at this juncture from what ive seen, maybe dice can turn it around but color me jaded on there past efforts to fix BF2 and BC2 of various issues that just made things WORSE, im sure everyone recalls the Medal of Honor hit detection patch they brought over to BC2 lolz
Simply put BF3 has to much more overhead for someone in my location in terms of distance to get proper info.
so i dropped BF3 went to play BC2 tonight 1.5-4.0 K/D every round. latency usually around 90ms-100ms
most BF3 servers i have 200-250ms ping / latency
and its readily apparent to me that BC2 is much faster paced then BF3, and since im not getting 1 shot by every weapon i dont have access to its much more enjoyable as well lol
I have around 50ms to NJ\NYC\Illinois\VA servers for BF3 and the exact same for BC2, gonna go ahead and say it's your connection. I should have 20-30ms to NYC and NJ, but my Comcast connection has oddly high latency. The only unlocks I've ever used were Sprint (doesn't affect damage) and recently Forefrip on some guns (only affects recoil). So I beg to differ that all the guns are worthless until you put in 10 hours.
dosent explain why BC2 has half the latency / ping
the above is 1 example
the extreme example and BC2 still has 100ms ping vs BF3 average of 200-250
when playing BF3, i more or less use the PP-2000 PDW. Ive just unlocked the second IR scope and flashlight for it last night. its a good gun and it kills stuff unless that the guys running around with UMP, then it doesnt matter who fires first.
if hit detection is client side and the server lets players move forwards and backwards in time with varying latency, all we are left with is chaos....
how could they have not come across this problem...
their servers simply do not keep players in sync... and we might aswell rename it anerchy online
or even better Instadeath ''you wont know what hit you... literally''...
the netcode is broken beyond belief... its worrying...
SO am I, when I attack.
I also like knifing the snipers on dumbshit Island.
in defense I usually C4 the boxes. lol
Just when they think The are arming the box, BOOM!
NO wonder my KDR and spm was shit.
I was starting to actually believe I was a shit player.
I would always see everyone's stats were 3x better than mine lol.
now you people all see what I've been going through.
I've almost exclusively played the support class.
My scores didn't' start getting better until i got the PP2000.
good these stats aren't permanent. lol
When game goes live imma go assault until I unlock the pp2000.
Sorry, nope. Just got it from a friend
They are highly effective in cqb, as what they are meant to be. Since only map out there is metro, it has become a staple as of now and has gotten an amount of attention.. people will say its op, because they get sprayed in the face almost half of the time with some pp2000 whore with sprint MW-ing his way in the tunnels XD. But I doubt they will be overused or as highly effective in real battlefield maps
If that was directed at me - I dont use the sprint perk. I carry extra ammo perk instead when using the PP-2000 as i tend to lay down cover and supressing fire.
Out in the park. im either Support/Ammo or Assualt/Medic - Both with PP-2000 (because i like it, and because it pwns) In the tunnels. I go engineer with the rockets. because the Carl Gustav whores of BC2 have made their way onto BF3
I dont go anywhere without my PP-2000 Especially since i unlocked the tactical flashlight.
but i hate when team mates flash their fucking light right at my face. It makes me wish that friendly fire was on.
On a lighter note (pun intended) -- Players can now 'grief' other players on their team who spawn as sniper.....when 99% of the team are already snipers. just run around them shining your flashlight in their face!!!
Nothing says a bigger fuck you then a flashlight in the face!!!!
The real question is can you blind some1 in a tank ?
