A scout chopper with Gyro Stabilizer, ECM, and 2 engineers with the mechanic field upgrade on and you are not taking it down. I cant remember who was flying but I do remember being one of the repairmen and between 2 of us and the chopper staying steady with each hit, we never went down. Must of been 4-5 people trying to take us down but it wasnt working. I would see 3% on the chopper but the field upgrades makes the repair so much faster that they couldnt hit us quick enough. I agree that it needs a buff but if they do that then the attack chopper needs to bring back the flares for the gunner seat or greatly reduce the reload time between the flares/ECM otherwise the attack choppers are screwed even more.
I also think the rest of the rocket launchers need to be worked on. They all cant be slightly identical in damage. Lets look at them all.
LAW - fire in the general direction and you can hide back around the corner for cover.
RPG - fire and you can hide for cover but you need to be accurate as there is no homing in on the nearest vehicle
SMAW - Like the RPG but with lesser damage. Difference is it can go out a little further before dropping.
Javelin - Fire but you need to stay locked on for a hit.
SRAW - Fire and guide the rocket to hit the target.
Is it me or does anyone else feel as if the SRAW should be the strongest of them all? I have to stay in harms way and guide the rocket to the vehicle. The javelin should be next in damage, tied with the RPG. You do have to stay locked on but its guided for you. Smaw then the LAW. Just my MPH thought for today
Sorry Neo but Tuesday is my only busy day at work. Its the only day where I leave between 5-6. Every other I am home by 1, so I can join you tomorrow once the new TV shows up.
China Rising is out today for all Premium members. You should of downloaded it already with the game. As of an hour ago it hit the servers, according to DICE.
Today sees the premiere of Battlefield 4 China Rising, releasing for a two-week time-exclusive period for Premium Battlefield 4 members! All-new maps and gadgets, plus a new game mode and a very special vehicle await fans in this thrilling expansion.
Battlefield 4 China Rising sees you fighting on the Chinese mainland on four new maps. In Silk Road, you will find yourself at a military outpost surrounded by desert, battling both among man-made structures and on the sand dunes. The lush Guilin Peaks focuses on infantry-based combat; so the heaviest vehicles here are transport helicopters. Dragon Pass is a more vehicle-based map where rivers iconically steep mountains make for a spectacular view, and finally we have the sniper-friendly Altai Range with its vast, open spaces and snowy mountain peaks.
Air Superiority and the New Bombers
China Rising is also adding a new game mode to Battlefield 4 called Air Superiority. Here, you fight for control points on the map, using air units only. This mode is ideal for players who really love and want to focus on their dog fights, without the need to worry about units on the ground.
Altai Range is based on the beautiful mountain range Altai Mountains, located in East-Central Asia.
New Toys and a Fan-Favorite Vehicle
There are two new gadgets in China Rising, the SUAV and UCAV. The SUAV (Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is a Recon exclusive and is basically a remote-controlled plane that you can pilot around the map, in order to spot enemies and laser-designate enemy vehicles. It can also be used to kill enemies. The UCAV (Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle) is a new toy for the Support class and can be described as a pocket TOW missile. After deployment, this can be guided like a missile and is very effective against vehicles.
The dirt bike is back! Make sure to try out this speedy fan-favorite to move swiftly between control points (or just to do crazy stunts).
And of course, there is the triumphant return of the dirt bike. Fans loved this speedy vehicle in the Battlefield 3 expansion End Game, so that’s why we chose to bring it back for China Rising.
Starting today, China Rising will be available for Battlefield 4 Premium members for a two-week time-exclusive period. Make sure to get Premium to get a head start for all Battlefield 4 expansions, 12 Battlepacks, exclusive new content on a weekly basis, and much more.
