Also, the BF3 claymore is the most inconsistent piece of junk on the planet. I have ran straight past many claymores and not even triggered an explosion. I got 12 claymore kills last night playing CQ, and I need 13 more. I witnessed enemies running through my claymores and Nexus' claymores on many occasions.
Try Tehran Highway. I get about 50-100 MAV spots per round on that map, along with about 20-30 MAV kills. Also, be sure to pause between spots/spot attempts for a second or two. I hear you on the claymores...I got kills mostly on stairwells by putting one and then another a few feet past, since it seems that a single one very rarely gets the full kill now.

I absolutely love sniping in this game though....so satisfying when you pull off a long shot aimed way above their head, and watch the bullet drop and catch them in the face.
It's not that the L96 is a bad gun, per se, it's just that I abhor camping snipers. I don't like being forced into being one of them....AGAIN
. I played over 3 hours yesterday and only got 29 kills with it.
Granted, I would get either frustrated or bored and hop in a jet or a tank once per map to keep me from falling asleep or cursing but sniping is not fun to me at all. On one map with 500% tickets, I had 5 L96 kills in about 40 minutes, yet got 13 kills in the jet in less than the last 5 minutes! Next map, same thing; 7 L96 kills in an hour, then18 kills with the tank in under 10 minutes. It's also incredibly frustrating for me to sit back and not PTFO while my team goes down in flames.
I know everybody says, "Oh, just go on Metro and use iron sights,"
but every single time I try that I get the shot off, it does 80% damage and the other guy obliterates me with spray-and-pray. In BC2, I could get kills at distances of 300-500 yards/meters with ease, but in BF3, I can't hit shyte. I'm thinking I should use it on Rush instead of Conquest, since the attackers are forced into one to two places.
Still, it's beyond annoying that DICE decided to give out this last set of assignments that use the exact same
weapons that the last set used, particularly just to get some crappy camo on crappy guns...not exactly my idea of "Premium Content." Edited by spyder696969 - 7/31/12 at 8:40am
