Don't they both fire a 30/06 round ?
m1 does, idk about the m60
4x scope on ump
M1 is chambered in 30/06 or 308. IRL
M60 fires a 7.62x51mm NATO
Well I assume we are all talking about the pistol Tracer Darts. Above is the way they are supposed to work afaik, but apparently don't always (or most of the time) I am starting to think. Can't speak from the POV of an engie firing rockets at tanks but I have landed about 75 darts on tanks and only seen +10 Tracer Dart Assist (or whatever it says after a rocket lands on that Traced tank) like 3 times. This combined with what Mussels said has me wondering what's up...
ya I have tried the tracer dart stuff but maybe it only works with certain weapons and maybe it has to be your own tracer dart ATM? ... I dont know but I cant get it to work like it is suppose to unless I am missing something. Maybe it has to be your tracer dart and the RPG ... not the gustov or the other one?
either way ... this guy was shooting what looked to be just straight in the air and then the rocket would come down and drill my tank. He knows something we dont lol
ive planted a few times and the only thing ive noticed is that it puts an orange box in your weapon scope, pretty much just an aim assist from what ive experienced as i still have to place the shot
person who tracer darted the tank/chopper/atv/boat has to spot it your carl gustav or rpg will hit it.
i tagged it and my gustav flys straight as an arrow right over the tank missing completely ... i have yet to try the RPG though
you have to look through the gustav sight until it says heat THEN fire.
You mean I have to tag then spot the vehicle? I still don't understand due to the way you worded that...
no the red reticle only has to appear then fire away. now you cannot fire it up into the sky and expect it to fly down uav style into the target.. you must aim within a few degrees of the trace.
when a tracer dart is fired zoom in with the rocket launcher ie right mouse button look for the tracer dart you will get a signal that says HEAT meaning its locked on THEN you fire
its nothing more then a visual aid / help item to make sure the rocket hits
it helps mostly with faster moving vehicles and helipcopters..
dart a heli and chances greatly increase of bringing it down on the first try
Once its tagged, hit right click and hold the cursor over the red box. The red box will 'bold' (it will go from being 4 corners of red to a full square of red around the 4 corners of red). It will also say 'Heat' as mentioned. From here you can fire in any which direction and that rocket will do its best to get back to the target while following its own physics and turn rates.
+1 this is how it works. i dont see how they were firing into the sky
claymores are cool
claymore? theres no claymores
how long does that take?
AT mines maybe?
Probably around 1 second or 2 of holding the reticule over the tracer box. Not very long.
hmmmm ok ill have to try it out next time then ...
i never knew though you could still hit tab to see the map in hardcore mode.
no, that's not right. i don't think
from what i read there are two different types, there is tracer AND heat, they are not the same thing. i am not totally sure of the differences, but from what i gather heat is not supposed to work with tracer darts, but with the heat from vehicles.
well ive NEVER seen heat show up unless someone used a dart so probably another broken game mechanic as is the usual of late
im still a fan of the flying hovering knife atks makes jumping building to building so much fun (sarcasm)
I don't look for 'Heat' (though I've seen it before). I go by the box lighting up (which I'm positive happens each time). Note: the boxes must stop flashing for it to work.
You have to be quick, but at the start you'll see the tracer is only '4 corners'. Once locked on you should be able to clearly see the box that surrounds the original 'corners only' box. The video has 720p if you need a bit more clarity.
