    Does dx9 work? or singleplayer?
    maybe goto dxdiag
    Select the sound tab at the top of the tool.
    Set the Hardware Sound Acceleration Slider to "Basic".

    switch speaker number from 0->2 or 2->0

    I think I would completely reinstall BC2 after all that. Rather than chasing ghosts of ideas, start with a clean slate. Especially because I know you all tweak a lot of settings in this game.

    I hate getting sniped, and half the time it causes me to make a vendetta against the person who just killed me. Which often means going sniper and giving them a taste of their own medicine. Most noobs stay put after sniping someone which means I know right where to look for them. Last night there were 3 humpers on the island on Isla giving me grief so I went recon and killed all of them in a row. The last one gave me a marksman bonus of 193! (What's the highest you guys have gotten?)

    When long range sniping I like to shoot and immediately retreat behind cover and point in a different direction. If I score a kill, the kill cam will show me in a slightly different place and facing the wrong way. It can sometimes make it harder for my victim to know where I just killed him from. This tactic seems to work especially well if you're behind enemy lines.

    Snipers are why I don't play Hardcore. And honestly while a lot of people seem to complain about CG rape, I don't seem to experience it that often (outside of the very occasional "CG is all I use DERP DERP DERP" guy).

    People will ALWAYS gravitate to the most overpowered weapons. This isn't a special feature of Battlefield games. About the only FPS I know that even makes a decent attempt to balance each weapon is TF2, and even that is occasionally unbalanced.

    I got a 250ish point marksman bonus once. I was on the lighthouse sniping just as we advanced to the last point. Someone had been spotted through a buch of trees and somehow I managed to nail them right in the face from way way back there. It was a total luck shot, but I didn't shut up about it for hours.

    As satisfying as bad company is now, with its firm and mature foundation, I propose we mass-debate the areas of limp inadequency so that group experimentation may lead to the fulfillment of previously unexposed clefts.
    Not to say it doensn't stand erect in delivering a complete penetration of the senses, that innate desire to shoot harder and faster towards multiple targets. I simply hope more pleasure may be derived through oral skill.
    Starting slowly: The ideal is easy, a relaxed evening made pleasing by introductions to companions new and old. The actions rises, a consensus reached, and
    Together, we Men deftly grasp the objective by the ankles, part its tender defenses allowing the specialized maneuvers to penetrate, eagarly ascending into a white hot climax, to undulate in a dance of collapse and revival.
    To come to such heights, we need only to maintain the fluid play, tone down the emphasis on big guns, while engorging the communicative and consensual aspects.

    I feel intensely guilty about playing Recon but it's the class I've unlocked the least in, and I'm terrible as a shotgun wookiee. Whenever I do Shotgun Wookiee it seems like there's always a neon sign over my head.

    You could try using the 4x/RDS with one of the silenced sniper rifles. It takes a lot of skill but you can be pretty effective with them. Otherwise you can just use the M14/Garand, though you can't spam shots with those.

    Yeah it can be pretty good at times, I guess I've just been unlucky recently - running into more sniper teams and the like.
