I still stand by the fact the default Assault Rifle is a good gun. I still occasionally use it, though I hate the iron site as much as everyone else. The default Sniper Rifle is easily the second best sniper rifle in the game. I guess what I am saying is, I had no issue starting out. I have my worst games trying out new weapons that perform worse than the previous weapon for the kit. The L88 Sniper Rifle and Grouch 443 have gotten me killed a lot for no reason.
I love guns that provide variation that fits different play styles, but sometimes a gun just sucks and will not be used when better options are available. And on that note, I love the M1, but I see no reason to use it if you have the M14.
I have beat that a few times, I think my best was 20/1.
As Assault though it's different than a Medic. As a Medic you sprint out into fire to save others, as Assault you don't sprint into open fire to give people ammo.
I'll accept your challenge and raise you all stats in your sig
What I have lost my title? I call shenanigans, coming up on 400 tags and I've calmed down on it.
Nope. I have a Via and yeah that could be the difference. Good catch.
What you just said about the white screen and CTD are PB issues from what I understand. Try the trick I listed here about admin rights and PB. That might help.
I've done it more than once. Plus If I see a thick battle its my JOB to run into the firefight.
No your title is M60 whore.
well, maxed assault today, now on to sniper and then Ill be done.
I would like to see more of arica harbor (or whatever it is) I know a lot of people don't like it, but I do. a lot. (Heli = awesome. must fly more!!!)
also, I'd like to see some maps like nelson bay, and Valparaiso used more. while I love teh current maps, it's a pretty short cycle and it gets old if you play in long stints.
I got killed mostly by grenade launcher, M60, rocket launcher.
I'm sure those are the mostly used weapons in the game .
We should have a rush game sometime, all the conquest maps are getting boring!
Thats every Medic I strive to knife, and if I can't knife you, I shoot knives through my M60 at you.
I'd love to be an M60 whore. As soon as they give me one!
have you actually installed this and tried playing a game with it?? i thought about trying it out for fun just too see what it's all about.. some people seem to praise it for the apparent games performance increase it can give.. although i've never seen anything from wine give any performance increase over native dx myself?
I cant wait until they dull down the M60. Its WAY over powered and WAY to accurate. Oh and Reayth has a lot more knifing than you given the time he has played. You have 12 plus more hours and only 100 more stabs.
from ea bc2 forums
Hmm, still 3 more pages to read until I catch up with the thread. But it'll take away from my game time, so I'll read the rest later and head on to TPU now ->
edit: hmm just me and prime on, why are you rest here and not gaming
The M60 is only very accurate when using the LMG equipment, which most people use, without that it's a good gun, but not amazing, theres guns from other kits that at any range give it a go, like the PP2000, some reason that thing pelts me to death even at long range. And not only does it have to be balanced against weapons, but other kits have more answers, as Assault I barely ever shoot people (and it seems the same for everyone else) and as Engi, the M2CG is just amazing, I don't really compare snipers as they are ranged, but if taken with the right gun and motion sensing grenades, they are lethal close quarters.
But doing the math I knife 9.83 people an hour he knifes 9.72, so he doesn't do a lot more knifing than me, I reclaim my knifing title Plus I'm maintaining a very positive KDR while doing it, and thats very hard to do, knifing is really a suicide mission. The first 2 days the game was out I was averaging knifing 20 people an hour (1 every 3 min, but my KDR was real close to 1 then), but I have relaxed after the 200 tag medal and my KDR has gone way up. (Knifed a ton in todays games, now at 10.2 an hour)
Random update. After playing around with the M16A2, I am going to stick with the AN-94. I am sniper by nature and tend to lean toward high power and accuracy over fire rate. The M16A2 is decent, but not my style sadly. Such high hopes, but it failed to live up to my needs in a gun.
No one is allowed to point out that my current preferred weapon for Engi is the Uzi with a red dot.
Nothing wrong with sticking with the AN-94, it's an amazing gun. And the Uzi seems very good, you think you will move to the PP2000 or no?
The AN-94 Abakan, M416, and M16A2 are all good guns to me.
I use the M16 primarily because it takes less effort from longer distances and is seemingly more accurate from most of the distances that I fire it from.
I’ll use the AN-94 if I am running around like a wild man.
The uzi and PP2000 fire super fast I prefer the PP because it's faster firing and I get more kills with it. I don't bother with wither scopes though on engi's guns.
Yeah the AN-94 does seem a bit crazy, I don't have the M16 yet, I do have the M416, but haven't tried it, but now that I think about it I might have to, just a bit to hard to kill people at range with the AN-94.
I don't have either of those unlocked yet, but I loved the PP in BC1, just an amazing gun. So I most likely will use that, I usually don't use scopes on anything, though I been messing around with a red dot on the AN-94.
AN-94 + Magnum ammo is a good mix for medium ranged, definitely one of my favorite weapons as well.
M16 + Magnum is great too, better for taking down snipers and campers so its right up there for me as well.
When I am feeling confident I just stick with AN-94 especially on normal servers since if you get your shots to hit accurately enough which isn't impossible imo becomes the most deadliest assault rifle in game.
As for sniping VSS Sniper Special the one with fast fire rate and silencer is awesome to sneak around with but usually need the ammo upgrade or you'll run out of ammo in a few kills
<- jealous. I don't have any of those guns, not to mention magnum ammos :/ But I'll get there some day. Holler if TPU server gets close to full, don't really like it with so few people, especially conquest That Panama thing could take 64 easily, feels empty even with 32.
No, I will not. I have tried the PP2000 and I just prefer the Uzi. The Uzi does fire slower, but it does do more damage. While the red dot is kind pointless, I really don't like the iron site on the Uzi. Depending on the situation, I will swap it out for more ammo for the Uzi or Explosive upgrade for more missiles.
I honestly think all the guns are good guns. I like that some depend on your play style as a whole or with that kit in particular. As an Engi I tend to be in people's faces at close range so I like the balance of the high fire rate and damage of the Uzi. I want to like the UMP 45, but it is mainly a mid-ranged weapon and I don't play the Engi that way for it to be effective.
There are only three guns I think are a complete waste of time to use.
*The G443 pistol just doesn't fit into any situation, play style, etc. that I can say it is better for than the others. It is just out classed for any situation in this game.
*The default Engi gun has everything in the middle. It has the smallest clip, and medium everything else (compared to other sub machine guns). The other options are just better in any case. The first unlock made the gun useless. The Scar-L does slightly more damage, shoots slightly faster, and is slightly more accurate. even if I am seeing that comparison bar wrong and everything is even, the Scar-L has a 30 round clip give it a 50% increase in clip capacity.
*Finally, the L88 Sniper Rifle (I think that is its name). Obviously I don't use the gun and my reason is simple "SVU". It is the same situation as the Scar-L accept now the SVU has less kick and is near silent. Neither will do serious damage with the first shot or two, but at least with the SVU I will not give away my position quickly and can easily reacquire a target and fire a second and third shot, usually before anyone notices. I use this gun with a 4x scope and do "clean-up" work. Getting rid of the wounded who think they are hiding or fleeing from the situation they just got owned in.
Any of you guys join the Pax tournament? My clan and I just finished our first round about an hour and a half ago and just wanted to know how other teams are doing. that's if you guys signed up of course.
whats max rank in this game?
how did you do? what team?
i dont think anyone from [TPU] did. i was sort of interested but i can never make those WAN tournament game times.
Wish we had any kind of gaming conventions around here :/
