    Breaking News!

    Demize99 is a useless shitface who hates the PC community. The AT4 has had a damage reduction. The RPG is now better in every way. You have no reason to use the AT4 at all.

    But at least the CG was nerfed.

    The AT4? I've never ever seen anyone use it ever.

    And now I never will.

    It used to be great for smashing tanks in the ass and dealing massive damage to them. Hiding behind a wall and nailing one in the treads was usually an insta-kill. But you have to guide it, and can't lock on with tracers. It was perfectly balanced.

    I used it for a few seconds right after I unlocked it. The manual tracking sounds like such a nifty feature but it's such a pain.

    You can just shoot it then swap weapons, and I personally preferred having that control to using the tracer. There was absolutely no reason to nerf it, ugh.

    Wait, how do you try out for a clan on a pub? Is there a competitive BC2 scene? I thought the lack of server tools nullified it. Would be interesting to see how it played, 8 vs. 8 I imagine? Or even 4vs4?

    Yeah I'm sort of vaguely curious about the clan stuff. Havn't done anything like that since TFC.

    In the comps and ladders I've been playing in, standard matches tend to be conquest 8v8, with some 4v4 squad rush. I've been liking the 4v4 a lot more, partially because whenever I play conquest I just wish I was playing rush.

    So... I logged in to finally get my all weapons and all general bronze stars, but once I got it with the Garand I still didn't get it. Does anything new give stars? I don't have anything for the tracer dart gun or smoke grenade launcher and other non-shooty gadgets but everything else is starred. Also, sorry about the motion mine thing. I almost never play recon and I was just getting my garrand and mortar kills. Forgot!

    Oh wait... defrib or repair tool?

    You can't really spam them, since throwing another deactivates the previous. But still, you'd be better off than 80% of recons right there.

    SVU/T88 + Ammo Upgrade + Revolver = frontline asshole shooting medics and throwing motion mines. If you get an assault buddy and keep mines on the hills that the offense inevitably stalls on, you can easily get 1000 points from motion mine assists alone. It's also stupid fun.

    CG still useful for its intended purpose and is easy as fuck to use.

    People will use it, they need to nerf the max rocket limit to 3 and make it take 20 seconds per rocket to refill from a box.

    Spoken like someone who didn't play through the great heydays of rocket spam. The Dome has always frowned upon CG spam, for the only way to counter heavy CG spam is with your own CG spam, and then the server gets super shitty and empties. Also, people with more CG kills than SMG kills are lesser men who may what enjoy the company of other fellows, if you catch my meaning.

    No, C4ing a UAV to blow up points is not good. CG isn't that bad. A moveing target is hard to take out, save if you can lead them and have height. Basically it's best taking out folks behind cover anymore.

    If it was only used to take people out while they were in cover or when someone was running from point a to point b then no one would complain. Hell, even the occasional snipe from across the map is acceptable. But the point blank shot or using it like a better shotgun is ridiculous.

    You can't use that thing point blank, your just going to end up suiciding at best. Shotguns are so good, your better off using an actual shotgun if you want to go that route. I never find guys running in close quarters with it, it's mostly used to pummel buildings, cover and peg guys from a distance. Is this not the case for everyone else? :P

    Yeah I've actually noticed that people trying to point blank blast with the gustav have been killing themselves with the blast quite frequently.

    I'll bust out the gustav when I see 6+ people grouped up behind the same cover because getting a multi kill of that is fantastic.

    You can achieve the same thing by throwing a hand grenade, then launching a 40mm grenade at it. And it's like 10x cooler.

    It's great fun to catch people on your own team trying to C4 UAV the points, better when they're coordinating it through team chat.

    I show up, shoot a rocket at the UAV and it loses all it's C4. Or even better, they go "Hey let's try that again", I then run up to the UAV, let them C4 it, then just jump out of the console. whiiiiir whiiirrrrr BOOM

    Do not argue with Masume regarding the Gustav. He didn't see reason in the past and he won't see it now. He has 737 CG kills, and his next highest is the M60. He is biased and it will be a fruitless argument.

    That aside, CG spam isn't as bad as it used to be since so many more things are viable now. It just so happens that the people who do spam CG and the like just also happen to be tremendous silly gooses. And those people, CG spam or not, won't last long if I'm around.

    Having the CG itself is okay. But only using the CG combined with Explosives Mk2 is pretty disappointing. My use of the CG is limited to using it against Blackhawks, because it travels faster than the RPG, and bunker busting (i.e. houses with people in them). Other than that, I've gotten good enough with the SMG's that using the CG is no longer necessary.

    EDIT: I should add that I also have around 700 CG kills, so I might have a bias towards the CG. I just hate teams or people who use it exclusively, while I use my SMG as my primary weapon.

    My favorite moment last night when me and some other PAer on the attacking team tried to take the lighthouse. He was a recon and I was an assault, and thanks to his motion mines and my resupplying of said motion mines, we knew there was a guy somewhere in there. So we starting moving up the stairs, checking out each floor one by one. Right before we get to the top, the guy drops off the radar. "Where'd he go?", I said. He'd stopped moving, obviously

    After waiting a few moments, we finally made our move, only I'm not sure entirely what happened next. There was an explosion, which made me back off, and a few beats later the enemy recon dropped down to the stairs and my buddy was dead. I in turn shot the guy in the face, and the lighthouse was ours.

    My least favorite moment was when I cut through a door only to find a guy inside crouching in a corner aiming a CG at the entrance.
