    irons on the enfield are the only tolerable thing to me. Scope glint and fuck right off, especially since assaults can take semi-autos with a non-glinting 3x and do like 90% the damage of a sniper (at suitable 3x ranges) except be able to accurately fire significantly faster.

    wait

    do scopes for other classes not have glint?

    I thought that like BF1, only the 6x scopes have a glint effect?

    You're probably pretty good at nailing long range shots without the aid of scopes now, though. I'm trying the model 8 with the irons because I don't like how the 2x sight fills the screen. I'm getting OK with it, but the Model 8's irons are kind of trash =/

    Can you run bolt-action rifles like the einfeld and kar98 with just iron-sights? How much of an exercise in frustration/fool's errand would it be to try and play aggressive recon with bolt-actions?

    If you're good at snap headshots they're fine, but the SLRs are probably a better option for that playstyle, as they'll fire much quicker but kill in the same number of shots

    Breakthrough is so unbelievably awful... like holy shit I hate it. It's incredibly skewed towards the defenders, at least that's how it feels on Hamada. Defenders should not be able to recap a point after you take it.

    Also, is there any word on what happens if you don't happen to complete the challenges to obtain a weapon or cosmetic within the week? Like will the VGO just be gone for good, sorry about your luck?

    I did all the first week stuff pretty quickly except for the two needing other people to use your crates. There are so many crates right now all over!

    Also because of this games have gotten crazy hectic since everyone is a support MG or a Medic. People dying and getting rezed immediately. Tracers everywhere.

    I turned a corner into a hallway of the center hanger on Aerodrome and sprayed down three Germans with a sten and got three headshots. Up till now I’d never gotten a headshot with an smg!

    Yeah, for some reason (on the PS4) I could progress really well in Tides of War yesterday, while my squadmates, who were PSN friends, got stuck on the self-revive part. They didn’t progress, while I was healing peeps while using ammo stations, destroying and building fortifications like mad.

    I’ve also been murdered multiple times by that VKO or what’s it called (by someone who already had it al level 6 or 7!)

    I only have to get people using my med crates (which they never do, it’s amazing that some people don’t seem to even use their health packs regularly), build a snowman and kill someone with a stationary weapon.

    I did notice that there is a big delay on getting my unlocks from Tides of War XP; I was level 5, and I still hadn’t received my emblem/dog tag and special assingment; but a few matches later they suddenly appeared...

    Nevertheless I really like this Tides of War concept!

    My string of wins on Wednesday was just a fluke I guess... Did not win a single match last night save for one clutch Dom victory. Losing 25-40, triple capped the points, and ended up coming back to win 25-0. Trying not to let winning be the only metric of fun for the game, but goddamn... it does not feel great to go on a long ass losing streak.

    Put some time into support class last night too. Primarily playing medic, I am not used to so many double and triple kills! That KE7 is pretty good :^:

    VKGO is a nice addition to the team. Its middle ground between 34 and 42 for stats. Fully upgraded it's pretty good I find you can chug away without care. Also more control at range I find.

    They are structurally different... lol and their firing mechanism I believe is slower. It is for all intensive purposes a easier made weapon. Cocking handle on the side vs top.

    I just like the look of that one more then the gangster one. Drum mag is a terrible thing to reload, they ditched it because it's not practical. I cant re create BoB without it!

    My main problem with the maps is all the fixed cannons (one of my favorite things in BF1) seem to have been placed by idiots. There's literally one that is on the edge of the map, pointing directly out of bounds. It is unusable. Most of the other ones are either in terrible locations or are pointed in the opposite direction of where they'd be useful.

    Also in this one, when you shoot the canons, it goes into the reload animation, even if you are holding down ADS, which means you cannot easily see if your shot actually landed or if you were short or long or by how much. This was not the case in BF1, it wouldn't reload until you let right-click go. Its like "No, MBW was having too much fun with cannons last time around; let's completely prevent that possibility in this game"

    For the poorly placed or wrong way ones, it’s because they’re supposed to be towed into place. In a good team organized match this seems great. In a normal public match, awful.

    I wasn't aware that they were towable, I thought it was only the aa guns. That makes a lot more sense.

    Now I just want control over when I reload.

    Man I am really really loving this game. It def has some bugs but some things I think are just misunderstandings.

    The not using bipod when prone I think has a lot to do with the new falling on your back thing. When you initially go prone you have to crawl forward a bit to deploy the bipod. It’s a very specific animation where you can see your character plop it down. Same for propping it on stuff. You have to see your character pick up the gun slightly then plot it back down on the bipod. I haven’t had any issues with using the bipod at all when looking for this animation. Downside is it’s not super quick so you cannot dive down and start firing.

    I gilded my second gun the KE7. It was much less terrible than the Sturmgewehr 1-5. I am, however, absolute trash with the SMGs. I played a fair bit of medic this week and I can’t hit anything that’s not in my face.

    The chapter ranks are also a lot of fun for me. I completed all the tides of war assignments and am looking forward to the next couple weeks worth. I have a feeling I’ll hot rank 20 in that no problem because I’m playing this game a REDICULOUS amount because I’m loving it.

    Agreed. I think a lot of the bitching about the prone / bipod thing isn't realizing how the character is interacting in the gameworld. I also realized what you said in my own Support career (I am on the final step of gilding the MG42 and have the MG34 all golded) in terms of setting the bipod up. There *IS* a bug where your guy just refuses to set up the bipod even when flopped on a flat street with nothing around, I had to switch weapons or die to fix it, but for the most part? Bipod not going down is usually on your back or your body doesn't have enough room physically to lay out.

    The last bit is important. Any time someone says "My guy was sliding" or "I was prone and never deployed", it's usually not the bug, it's usually your guy literally not having enough physical room to lay down. Once I realized this, my issues went way down.
