I'm still trying to figure out which loadout is best for me, but do all attachments and weapons unlock universally or just for that specific class? In other words, if I unlock a weapon as an engineer, will that weapon be available in engineer only or will I be able to choose it from another class as well?

- unlock kit classes by using the kit item specialties, such as ammo drops, heals, repairs and motion sensors & spawn beacons.

- unlock weapons by playing that weapon class and getting kills. Kills = unlocking additional weapons in the class AND unlocking attachments for the specific weapon. Each weapon requires unlocking attachments all over again. PS... you will notice some "special" weapons that are unlocked by specific assignments in the game or by playing the single player campaign.

- There are weapons specific to each class AND weapons which can be used by any class. Sniper Rifle is ReCon only, Assault Rifle is Assault only, LMG is Support only and PDW is Engineer only. Carbines, DMR, Pistols & Shotguns can be used by any class. Carbines, DMR and Shotguns each require a certain score in a specific class to be unlocked. Carbines is unlocked by the Engineer, but I forget what unlocks the DMR and Shotguns.

It's worth knowing every starter weapon in a class is pretty good and sometimes very good, like the AK-5C Carbine.

Welcome to the game and the coming player appreciation month should serve you well for leveling.

I have been using this weapon all wrong, and here's another reason not to get in a vehicle, this is worse than stingers, might as well get rid of all the vehicles and start playing COD.

Few people use it to it's full potential. People adept at using vehicles can get crazy scores. People who gamble with them usually pay.

IMHO the next update needs to include lowering the time in which you can deploy countermeasures in heli's and jets. 24 seconds or whatever it is is way to long.

Or also maybe allowing the gunner in the attack heli to fire off countermeasures as well. That would promote teamwork.

In bad company 2, if your reticule hits a stupid little leaf, the ordinance comes down right on you. In this video, it ignored a bush right in front of it. Wow.

I can just hear Spyder's rants now.

Not surprised I was playing like crap. So this new patch seems to not register hits. Was up in a jet and flaming before any hits actually registered. Played locker and died several times from one shots. Might just be my bad attitude though mad.gif will give it a bit and see what happens.

Lancang wasn't bad but it looks flat visually like they toned it down. Stutter is still there albeit less. Was getting shot down very quickly with so so hit markers. Went from 52 to dead in two red markers. Its not exactly worse but its not much better either.

I jumped in the Lancang server with you and was lagging pretty bad.

SRAW was definitely nerfed; pretty lame now. They also managed to nerf the test range; you don't get 100 explosives to play around with anymore. They added the ability to change your kit without dying, but you can't change loadouts or see the loadouts of the kits you want to change to.

So comma rose is on the tablet app...why?
Maybe I'm too tired to figure that one out, doesn't seem to mitigate not knoing which player is on what squad.

No more Scan UAV, that is huge and IMO wasn't fair if there wasn't a commander on both teams.

Detonation sites do not show on obliteration mode on tablet app, as in, there is no A,B,C highlighted.

DMRs feel about the same as before, so more power to those who enjoy them since you should get better performance out of them.

That was a lot of fun tonight. Do you need an invite to get into chat? I don't think I got one, unless old invites work..haven't tried. Regardless, I don't have a mic set up and had to keep running upstairs to help the flu victims.

The slams were working great on jetskis today, but I was having a horrible time getting tanks on Golmud in the jeeps; not that it mattered since you and Hapi were blowing everything up. I was so happy the server held together. It got shaky a few times, but better than normal!
