    The underslung shotgun will fire 12 pellets that each do the same amount of damage the gun its attached to if you have heavy barrel on....

    Today has been my day. MVP three games straight (technically once was MVP3, but I was still top on my team). Played a bunch of support and unlocked C4; threw my first loaded jeep at a tank head on (my squad mate started shooting at me because I didn't pick him up), blowed it straight up with the two men inside. :D
    Still frustrating when I die in a gun fight though because the other guy on my team goes for a knife behind the guy instead of just putting a single freakin bullet into him...

    Our n00b is growing up so fast. That last game I played with you guys on Oman last night was fantastic. Look forward to playing a bit later on today.

    It's a dumbass glitch. The one where you can silence your mortar at least has some comedy value ;-)

    I've known about it since the first day it was discovered.

    My wife's cousin is getting married today, so I might be on later in the night. But that would be even later for you, although I probably wouldn't play any later than we did last night.

    No sorry, I was actually trying to use your post to clarify the glitch because you described it nicely. It was an answer to @Jurgen_ who asked about it in a post just above mine. I just fucked the hole quote tree up =/

    Also, I might be semi-drunk.

    I should hop on when i get home and get in on the MASS glitch while I still can.

    We were trying to, yes.

    Needed about four times the explosives we had, though.

    Heckels, if you want to knock out co-op for some ganz just let me know. If any of you cats need someone to run it with, I'm down for it.

    Haven't played in a while, the game feels new again!

    What's a really fun loadout these days? I got way too serious and dry last time around, played nothing but Assault and the M16. :? All not feeling joy when I get a 2.0+ KD and getting mad when I don't. Fuck that. I want BF3 to be more like what our lord and savior birgirpall would do.

    Win.

    Would I be able to get an invite to the 103rd Arcadians? Origin name is the same as here. I bought this yesterday without realizing it required DX10/11, so I can only play on my laptop and not my PC. Guess this is the shove I need to finally upgrade to 7 on that computer -_-

    It's RIDICULOUS how good BF3 looks and how well it performs.

    Either that or everyone else's engine/optimization tech needs serious overhauling. How nonsensical is it that I can't run RIFT even at low graphics without slowdown in a 5-man dungeon, but I can look out over a war-torn battlefield in BF3 - a game that looks far better - with so much shit going on at once, and not have a single hiccup?

    Well, its probably an opinion thats shared by the people you kill with MAVs. Personally, I find it funny, but Im glad MAV kills destroy the MAV now.

    camo_sig2.png
  • DacDac Registered User regular
    Speaking of MAVs, is there any reason to use a TUGS over one, now? The big thing that TUGS had over MAV, at least I thought, was that it deployed quickly, whereas the MAV you had to go into MAV view and turn it off - a slight delay, but a delay nonetheless.

    But now that MAV deploys without going into MAV-o-vision, is there really any reason to use TUGS? The MAV now deploys faster, can be hidden or put in hard to reach/totally inaccessible areas, and if you leave one behind, you can just make it fly to you, as well as using it to scout ahead BEFORE you move to a position. Sure, moving it around increases the risk it can be shot down, but it's still an option that it has that the TUGS doesn't, and it appears to do the TUGS normal job - but better.

    Is there some benefit to a TUGS that I'm not noticing?

    After that, it's the only thing to even use. C4 jeeps ALL DAY. It makes the game SO FUN.

    Tugs still deploys faster becquse you auto switch back to your gun when you drop it.

    Why is it that this game sometimes drops the FPS to around 10- 20 ? For no reason at all. Then I have to exit the game and start it up again and it works fine. Been doing that since the beginning, then after one of the patches it stopped and now it started again. It's not a major issue, since it doesn't happen often.

    Graphics settings do not affect that either.

    I started playing on medium settings, because I started recording all the matches and the high settings were a bit too much for my computer and Bandicam on at the same time. Don't really notice a difference with medium and high either. Game looks purdy anyway I put it.

    What programs, if any do you guys use to record BF3 ?
