    Oh, totally. My problem is that it doesn't immediately asplode; my heart always sinks a bit when I watch five guys bail out of my beautiful plan to end their lives.

    Does wearing the chopper down with machine gun fire help? Will it blow up immediately if hit by an RPG when it has like 20hp left?

    No, like, if you hit the chopper at all with any AT weapon, it's a 1-hit-destroy. The game gives you about 3 seconds after the rocket impacts to jump out before you die from the explosion. Most of the time they die as they fall to the ground, easy pickings for the 15 other people who just saw you hit a helicopter with a rocket.

    edit: but now that I've reread your question; no. It will never immediately explode, but you can shoot the guys as they fall out!

    So, a little BC2 math problem I just solved.

    Main gun of a tank + Fully crewed enemy Blackhawk tearing ass towards your base = so much win it's barely containable in the realm of awesomeness.

    ......and the twisting, burning wreckage managing to splat manz on the way down? Extra credit!

    I. Love. This. Game.

    I really love that choppers are vulnerable in this game. I remember all the times I'd wait patiently for a blackhawk or cobra to come into range of my tank's main gun and I'd nail them, but then they'd just shrug it off like it was nothing.

    Goddamn do I love AT mines. Running around the battlefield, decorating it with explosive discs, and getting a bunch of kills 10 minutes later is really satisfying.

    If a UAV rams a blackhawk the UAV shouldn't fly away unscathed though, if hitting a tree blows one up I could think hitting a chopper would too

    So yeah, aimbots, wooo boy! I called out an assault tonight that just looked too suspicious (28/2 at the time, ended up 35/5 or something). He actually said "Punkbuster would kick me if I had an aimbot" and one of his clan toadies stood up for him. Then he goes on to say "I'm just that good, you guys should watch your corners and blind spots better". MMMMHMMMM

    So I look him up. Dude has a 1.3 k/d average and is rank 16. Not after tonight I'm betting! Money well spent!

    Can't say I've seen many legit 8:1 players.. much less an assault.

    Man, hate that Medic doesn't start with healthpacks and paddles. Gotta get like, 567890 points before you can unlock both. :(

    But I love killing enemy medics and picking up their kit. Why unlock it myself when I can kill someone else who did and take their gadgets. Do I get points towards that class for rezzing dudes even if I spawn as Engineer?

    No, I'm plenty stupid in the game, and I see many like me ;)

    But going 30/3 and 35/5 in Rush of all things (not like he can camp) two games in a row, when your average is 1.3 is a little, uh, far fetched.

    I don't know that I've ended many rounds with 8/1 KD, but I've definitely had good streaks at times. Not to say there aren't aimbotters out there, but I would check into it a bit more and not just base it off of the stats (unless they are much worse than 35/5).

    We had a dude in the first couple days on the PA servers that was like 80/x and very obviously hacking, hiding in a wooden building and shooting people in the head through the walls. He got booted pretty quickly.

    Maybe he just played the demo 26 hours a day from day 0, and is now crazy good, and snort Pixie Stix and injects Ritalin directly into his brain so he's all like.... Hyper concentrated and stuff and sets his thumbstick sensitivity to the highest so he twitches his thumb a lil and does a complete 450 degree turn.

    I tried this the other night. If you spawn as a Recon and pick up a Medic's kit, it seems you will get Recon experience for paddling and healing people.

    I think someone mentioned earlier that this would be a different way to get unlocks for classes you're not as fond of.

    I only observed the experience once, so more testing might be needed.

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but it is possible to do that on a regular basis. Things like tanks, voice chat, a full squad with you, and high rank produce numbers in the ranges you're talking about for me regularly. Hell, one of the guys I play with just went 52/7 with his knife alone not more than an hour ago.

    No hyperbole in this thread. Nosiree.

    Also the easiest way to get unlocks for classes you don't like is to join empty Rush servers and win over and over. The class you are when you set the detonators is the class that gets the points. Averages about 2000 points for a few minute's work.

    I'm so bad at this game, i must be doing something wrong. I mean it isn't that i dont win fire fights or anything, because i do. I'm not a bad shot. But i keep getting killed pretty much as soon as i spawn, a lot of the time i don't even get to move 5 steps before an M60 or a grenade or sniper kills me from some spot in the woods where i can't even see them.

    I have my good games sometimes, but i also seem to always have more deaths than kills. Anyone have any tips for evading these kinds of tactics? Like i said i can hit stuff just fine, its just that i keep dying while travelling, i must not be doing it right.

    You see, I can't do that on XBox 360. I have to hope I Quick Join a game that's dying and everyone else leaves.

    :(

    But you see, the problem with doing that on Rush maps is when you spawn as Defenders... Do you just like, C4 your own MCom? I guess you'd have to spawn as Assault then, so you can resupply yourself.... Or steal a Tank and blow it up...

    Also,
    http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/battlefield_bad_company/archive/2010/03/11/ea-maintenance-now-with-added-hardware.aspx##
    Tomorrow, 12th March, and Saturday, 13th March at 8:00GMT/9:00 CET:12:00 (midnight) PST, EA will take the servers down, this time we will come up with even more hardware with more capacity to handle all the BFBC2 traffic. Once the maintenance is complete you will experience an improvement to your online experience.

    This will be extended maintenance to allow the new hardware to be installed and affect all three platforms (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360).

    Halle-fucking-lujah!

    Edit: oh man. The two "new maps" are just old maps for different game modes. Arica Harbor Conquest and Laguna Presa Rush. Disappointed. I thought they were adding Strike at Karkand :(

    You can gleam quite a bit of information about the situation you'll be jumping into by studying the map for a bit and seeing what dots pop up and where friendlies are getting killed, but sometimes if they game just isn't going your way at all the enemy will reach this bizarre critical mass on your territory and then there's not much that can be done to root them out.

    I see a lot of the good players get places by running around the edges of the battlefield and making a beeline for every bush, tree, or crate they see.
    Keep cover between yourself and the enemy's lines.
    Avoid running down a road at all costs.
    Your sprint is infinite, so use it a lot.

    Nothing else from me on this one. I've upped my average lifespan from about 5 seconds to 10-15 seconds with this strategy.

    Edit: Find a good player and follow him around to see how they move. Make sure it's ok with them first so you don't annoy the crap out of somebody.

    Have you changed your FOV to something more reasonable than 55? If you havent, you're literally playing with horse blinders on. Change it o at LEAST 70, I'd recommend something around 75-80
