    Haven't tried it. Won't be able to tonight, it's 4am. Looking forward to more chopper killings tomorrow.
    Also, medics have been reduced to something akin to a health dispenser/stationary turret.

    I haven't checked yet today, but as of last night on the BC2 in-game store, the release date for the Dr. Pepper character skins was 4-21 which is today. I should boot up my 360 and check to see if they're actually available. I've got 4 DP bottle caps waiting.

    So what exactly did they do to pump shotguns and bolt action rifles? The notes are kind of vague.

    Also I'm glad to hear that the M9 won't be making me horribly, horribly angry any more. I don't really understand why they buffed the 443, though. That gun was already at least on par with the 1911.

    Fuck sleep, let's play some battlefield.

    Tried strafing while burst firing out a window with the XM8 LMG. Barely hit my target at all. Crouching down and tap firing? Much better. So we have snipers > medics, for shooting stationary targets now. Pretty awesome, DICE.

    I don't like the sound of reduced damage on the M16 because of a range improvement tweak, considering the M16 already has a monstrous range anyways. We'll see if Grenade launchers go back to Bad Company 1 levels of uselessness also.

    I'm not happy about the M16 change, at all. I haven't tried it yet, but from the way it reads, the AN-94 is now basically the M60 of AR's and there is little reason to use much else.

    Update for 360 owners: Just booted up my game to check and see if the DP skins pack was live. When I booted the game, it made me install a game update that wasn't available yesterday. Not sure if this is the new patch, but I did install an update to my 360 version of the game.

    The bad news, however, is that they seem to have completely removed the DP skin packs from the store options. They aren't listed on there at all now.

    It was probaly a patch for the Dr. Pepper promotion. It'll probaly take them a while to get the patch over to the consoles, and based on how things pan out on the PC, it'll probaly be a little different.

    To be fair, those people were already using the AN-94, since there are only five total guns in the 360 version.

    Why does the AN-94 need a buff, again?

    I'm a little sad about the M16 downgrade, just when I was starting to like it. Guess it's back to the (new and improved) glorious Abakan. Also unicorns.
    Hey, maybe the update will give LMGs massive spread with negative spray so they actually get more accurate as they fire like they claim they do. That'd be cool. Also, unicorns.
    Weapons universally recover 3.0 degrees of spread per second.
    As of Patch R7, LMGs recover 5.0 spread a second, resulting in greater accuracy with successive shots.
    Spread and recoil are always recovering, even while firing, in between shots.

    I'm 90% certain I was using VSmoke when piloting a Blackhawk last night and right clicking produced no flares. Does it only work on attack helis?

    It just wasn't good enough for a weapon that was two unlocks before the final one. That's why they buffed it up and brought down the damage of the M1-wait what? I don't mind the AN being brought up, but where did they get reduced M16 damage because of better range from? I can already shoot guys from across the map with it. It just seems odd, but the P.C version does have different issues with their weapons then people on the consoles.

    Nah, not even close. At long range it kills one or two bullets faster. Big deal.

    Sweet. I'm thinking of hooking up my PC either to my projector (native 720p) or my LED TV which does 1080.

    I'm gonna go ahead and guess the PC graphics are a touch better than the 360 version, no?

    The overall class changes are nice.

    I'm a little irked by the change they made to the bolt action sniper's minimum damage range though. It kind of throws out the little bit of uniqueness that they had between them.

    Oh well. All things considered, the SV-98 got a range buff <img class=" title=":mrgreen:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    The AN94 was probably buffed because at range, the second shot always misses.

    I wasn't. I was trying to see if flares worked on the way over in the event that someone did trace me I'd be ready. Will have to try again later with the new turbo tracer darts floating around.

    Ah, I hadn't noticed. It already seemed pretty strong, and is the gun I see most on people running assault. Well, that and the m416.

    If they really wanted to push the an-94, they could swap out those iron sights.

    Maybe it's VAlt-Fire? Like I said, it's been a long time since I've even tried it.
    If it IS Alt Fire, then flares would be limited to the Blackhawk / Hind.
