    Hm, good to know. Thanks all.

    Surprised I don't see more shotgun/C4 takedowns, although maybe that's just a consequence of practicing in pub servers.
    On the rare occasion that I play recon, I always use C4 to kill tanks.

    Oh, I meant close range recons advancing to MCOM and then C4ing the building, instead of sniping/mortaring (although I do love me some mortars). Seems like a single C4 recon getting in an MCOM building undetected is ready to ruin someone's day.

    Here's the glorious thing about Assault.

    And shotguns with Assault.

    You get C4! You essentially get everything that makes shotgun Recon amazing, but with infinite ammo/explosives because it's Assault. This frees up your first perk that you may be using for ammo or extra explosives for Lightweight, or Slugs, or whatever.

    Thus my favorite class is a SAIGA, Lightweight, Magnum, MP-412 sidearm as Assault. I am a tank killing, Engineer fucking, flanking your mans sonuvabitch. And it's oh-so-much fun.

    Is there any strategy necessary in taking down a building? Or is it just 'shoot at the bits that are still standing until they aren't'? I've never actually taken down a building on my own, or at least I haven't landed the final blow. I'll knock out all the walls with grenades if it offers any sort of tactical advantage, but after that I'm never sure if it's going to be worth trying to harm the structure or if I should just try and rush in to plant.

    From my experimentation, I don't think there's any real reliable method for taking down buildings. Just hammer away at the walls until you hear the loud creaking then run for the hills.

    The only foolproof way to drop buildings is to take out the entire bottom floor, then about three walls on the second, if it's a three story building.

    Why have someone be at 2% health after your first shot and then have to switch to sidearm/fire another round when you can simply fire two more with the semi-auto and make sure he's down? Or when there's more than one and a ridiculous amount of lead is needed? I love the pump-actions, but they don't have the mow-down ability of the SAIGA or USAS.

    I'm still trying to figure out what the point of some guns not using their iron sights is. The models have the sights. It's pretty clear, in any case, that absolutely no thought was put into the hardcore options.

    I played on an HC server tonight and while some of the perks were cool, IE dropping people fast, the cons outweighed them in my opinion. Plus, playing on a random server of douchebags doesn't help either.

    Aforementioned hardcore server?

    You know the server browser would suck less if it would tell us if a server was hardcore or not first. I've said it before but I swear they're all run by admins who play snipers. Oh no not recon, that would imply they did stuff other than use their sniper rifle from 500000 miles away. No I mean snipers.

    The problem is, said sight has no dot. Pretty useless, and it seems to extend to the red dot sight unlock too.

    I've never had that problem, tho I've seen the dot stay on my crosshairs even when I'm not sighted in. It's just buggy, like everything else.

    There was a Recon who I watched shoot seven times with the Type 88 sniper, at a stationary target, no more than 50 feet away.

    He missed every time.

    The other two were assaults who even with 40mm launchers, couldn't get more than 4 kills a piece.

    To imply that those currently at the top - the Warren Buffets and Roman Abramoviches of this world - are the very best, the ne plus ultra of humanity, is a kind of hate speech toward the species. Dignity demands that we refute it.

    Usefull Noob trick.
    If you aint got the defib pads yet.
    Shoot an opposing medic and take his kit.
    Now you have defib pads.

    Also if your medic goes down.
    Pick up his kit and revive him.

    Edit: Another usefull Noob trick (not getting killed trick).
