RE: proximity mines continued....
-These were one of the few unbalanced weapons in the beta. Don't know if they adjusted them or not, but they take the word "proximity" very seriously! They'll blow within a virtual 15 foot radius.
-When driving Jeeps or tanks, don't watch the horizon, look directly in front of you. People mine the most well traveled ground routes heavily (especially tunnels where the dark shadows obscure the mines)
-Tanks can be a monster in the right hands. In my experience, the best weapon against them is the flamethrower. Though it doesn't make much sense (a tank made of 3/4" heat-treated steel isn't going to bat an eye at a flamethrower), they'll take'em down from zero damage in about three seconds, if you're close enough.
-In a close-quarters combat, there are often better suited using the knife instead of a gun. One slash, one kill is how it worked in the beta. I hope they don't make it this way in the final build, but check it out. Also, the standard pistol was much more powerful than the assault rifle....which makes zero sense.
-If you're a loner like me, your favorite weapons will be the binoculars & a sniper rifle. The beenos are used to call in air strikes and will destroy any ground-based target in one shot. Downside? It takes a good five seconds to lock on, which can leave you exposed to sniper and rocket fire. You also have to wait a good minute before you can use them again. Sniper rifles will also take down a stationary Warhawk in two shots (at least they did in the beta....Incog may have tweaked the weapons balance since).
-When flying Warhawks, take note of where the weapon pick-ups are on each map. They're in the same place every time. Always know where to find a health pick-up and the starburst chafes (these'll save your ass many a time!)
-Arguably the most powerful weapon in the game is a purple-colored icon for Warhawks, aka the TOW Missile. This is a remote fire weapon that is controlled via a first-person camera. It can be sped up and slowed down, just like a Warhawk, as well as banked left and right. The pros will steer it right into a group of ground soldiers and obliterate them. This was the weapon of choice for one of the top beta players, Gergination (Incog tester). You'd always know when he was camping the TOW missile because he'd get 6 or 7 kills at a time.
-In Capture-the-Flag matches, some idiots thought it would be a good idea to wait for a member of their own team to get the flag, make it all the way back to home base, then team-kill him and take the flag and the 50 points that go with it. The official servers will kick and ban you for this, thankfully.
