    OK, so is anyone else a bastard with the UAV like me?

    I'll grab the UAV with the V Reload Perk going and just camp next to an enemy Mcom station on the edge of a mountain side out of sight. I'll pop out on the edge of the mountain and fire and then dip back behind some large rock or something making myself virtually un-spottable while it reloads.

    Yeah V Reload is the best freaking vehicle perk. This has won me many games against stubborn opponents.

    TAD was full and the server browser was actually working, so I hopped onto a random server last night. It's amazing how much you can improve when tyrannus isn't telling you how shitty of a player you are.

    Got an 8 kill streak in under a minute taking on two vehicles and some infantry as an Engineer solo. It was unreal... then I ran out of ammo and got raped by a Recon using a 1911 .45

    Butts.

    The Neostead 2000 with slug rounds finally clicked with me last night. Truly slugs are the real railgun in this game - drilling someone in the head from the other side of the map brings so much joy <3

    Finally I don't feel gimped running around as Action Recon.

    Bah, the shotgun wookie is a force to be reckoned with. Camping inside an MCom building with a shotgun and motion sensors is an excellent strategy when you got your back against the wall.

    Besides your team mates will love you for it.

    I prefer the Shotgun Slugging Assault.

    A fantastic defensive kit, since you've got unlimited ammo and C4, you can practically permanently deny access to areas for vehicles and enemies alike. Especially on the conquest maps, getting to heavy traffic areas before any enemy tanks get there is good fun.

  • SigtyrSigtyr Registered User regular
    edited March 2010
    When the assault class takes any weapon that isn't an assault rifle, they lose rifle grenades, and get C4 instead.

    By they way OP:

    Bad company 2 FoV Calculator. PC's use the exact same FoV of the consoles giving most players a bad case of blinders. Just input your resolution and it'll give you an answer as to what the best fov for you is. You can access this settings file under "My Documents" in the BFBC2 folder. It's called "settings.ini". Open this in note pad and you'll recieve a list of different settings you can change, like bloom, and FoV.

    It's a pretty crude explanation, I'm sure anyone can revise it better.

    I've left recon to gather dust while I get the assault unlocks, but sometimes i'm compelled to switch to it because the other recons are doing such a shitty job.

    I guess this is what happens when people don't have the PA forum to tell them how to play. Still, plenty of people seem to have caught on that the M60 fucks people royally.

    I was playing a pub earlier today in whcih it was 16 vs 12 and the team with 16 must have been compossed of nothing but recon and medics.

    One of my kill cams showed a medic huddled next to a group of 5 other medics.

    I use a logitech pad for helicopters. I just can't get the hang of m+kb for flight. If you have a game pad with analog sticks setting around, it's worth hooking up just to use when you hop in the pilot seat.

    Really? The UAV is so easy to pilot though. It's literally R for up, F for down and mouse to look around. It's like easy mode.

    It's really easy once you figure out that they give it completely different controls.

    r/f goes up and down, it hovers on its own and the asdf keys move it as you expect it to move.

    But yeah, I blew up the first 5 or so trying to fly them like a helicopter. And a good 10 more accidentally hitting e instead of r, prompting me to leave the vehicle control hut and blowing up the vehicle in front of me.
