please forgive me if you've already mentioned these things, but what game modes do you prefer?
my friends list is full, so when i get home i'll make some room and send you an invite.
I play HC but I don't really like it. I joined up with Gismo this afternoon and he was playing HC. We had mixed results. IN HC I find going for objectives, which is what I like to do, can be easier in HC because so many people like to run ReCon and snipe. The objectives are sometimes wide open.
I like RUSH and Squad RUSH the best, Conquest is OK. DM and Squad DM have never been my best modes. I only played Onslaught long enough to get the the achievements but I like helping others so I do play it once in awhile. Onslaught Atacama is also a great way to practice attack helo skills once you take out the VADS.
I'm a tank and UAV whore.
Running UAV with optics on any map with heavy vehicles or spawning helos can be an effective choice. Tanks, I say if you don't use them you're leaving them open for the enemy to steal and use. Never bail and leave a tank to be stolen. The tank driver must die with the tank.
I usually play the following kits:
Engineer + G3 + darts + CG (sometimes RPG) + Extra Rockets + Extra Damage + Optics (sometimes power head)
Smoke Assault + X8M + darts + SMK + extra Grenades + Mag Ammo + armor
Spammin Assault + X8M + dartrs + GNL + extra grenades + extra damage + armor
C4 Assault + G3 + darts + extra C4 + extra damage + armor
Only time I play ReCon is when it's my turn for sensor ball duty to camp/defend an MCom like.
I almost always load the dart gun to aid in targeting tanks and helos. If BC2 weapons load out was a little better designed such that each slot could be completely different across the weapons and perks, I might switch things up a little more, but all to often I'm wishing I had a dart gun before I need a side arm.
Anyway... I'm not the best player when it comes to K/D or SPM, but my W/L is over 2.0, and I will try to arm/disarm the objective.
I will look for you guys when I'm not playing with my buddies.
BTW... do you guys use XBOX party chat or in game chat? I noticed when playing Gismo, there wasn't much communication. I'm used to loading up the XBOX chat and using communications as much as possible.
