post #12181 of 16243
Good times flying last night, ground pounding was a mixed bag trying to relearn the controls.
post #12182 of 16243
Planning on getting a few games in around an hour or so. Gonna have the PVR recording also. Hop on if you want to be famous on the internets biggrin.gif

I'll be on in a few hours from now.

Trail how did your morning session go?

I can tell you he has pretty good Jef skills. I was almost instant death by him everytime I went to the air.

He got me on the ground several times too...

Sometimes I do well and sometimes I don't. Thanks for the complement though. I may just post some raw gameplay and no cutting. Had some connection issues today. Two freezes on metro. One lost connection. And an admin boot. Also spotted a lowgn, they are almost as scarce as bigfoot.
post #12187 of 16243
I was having an incredible game before the boot, considering how early into the match we were even though we had them spawn trapped already.

- getting on now...though the wife might claim it is movie time

I've been getting back into the swing of things, Assault recon is working wonderfully (semiauto snipers with iron sights, Team Deathmatch) I still suck at flying things.

I uploaded more jet play on karg from the weekend. It wouldn't let me upload all 30 min so its broke out into 3 vids. I think I'm going to focus on infantry since the new map pack will be mostly infantry. For all those that were on when i was playing...I have tons of recordings from the weekend so let me know if you want me to post a specific game if you remember it. I may have deleted some already since the files get pretty large.
post #12193 of 16243
Nice Trail. I figured it was going to be that game on Kharg where I was on the other team. So I went out to the garage, cracked open a beer, lit up a cigarette and prepared to watch myself die...and quickly figured out you had recorded a different Kharg match. lol Nice skills again.

I was wondering what your button layouts are.

I messed around with my layouts. I ended up leaving my sticks the same, but change the buttons. I changed it up so that now my fire button is on my normal trigger side, my right hand side. This alone probably doubled my skill set. I immediately noticed a difference the very first game in. It was night and day. Even got a Jet service star in that match. So I think that was part of my problem, and now I have to figure out the rest of what is plaguing my jet skills.

I think we should record some matches together maybe, idk. Then if we have the time, upload them to the Google Drive or something so we could download and edit a combined video or something. IDK, I'm pretty bad so it might be pointless.

In other news I have fallen in love with the reflex red dot sight and the 7.62 x 51mm NATO rounds. The Scar-H has always been good for me, but using it with this sight seems to make it even better for me. Also the G3A3 is my new best friend. These two guns are very, very similar. It seems to help to keep things as similar as possible for me. I like these guns because of the the heavy damaging bullet that seems to cater to my style a bit more. It packs a punch close up with big time damage to health. Has little bullet drop at pretty decent distances, without losing too much damaging capability. This bullet also delivers more suppression. But these guns seem to be great at medium ranges where I pop back and forth from cover. I think the damage model surprises many people I go up against. I think I am more of a burst fire guy anyways and that seems to be what these guns need, but at the same time you can just hold the trigger down at anytime if need be. I just can't seem to master the recoil all that well like some guys do with some of these guns, so I find myself burst firing mainly. Also, both these guns are excellent in single fire mode...somewhat similar to an SKS.

I have mainly been using the Kobra sight in the past. But I am liking the red dot sight...at least with these guns.

The G3A3 used to be my top gun for the longest time. Heavy barrel for a significant edge in the damage department, and use the bipod to negate the massive recoil. I had trouble using that rifle with any other combination.
post #12195 of 16243
Lol. Thanks mph. Most of my jet kills come from the other pilot being distracted. I think the time I shot you down you were chasing happi. I switched all my vehicle controls to primary fire on the right bumper, that helped a bunch for me because I associate the right side of the controller with primary fire. I changed the sticks to southpaw. It feels more natural for me that way, plus that's what Zath does smile.gif. The biggest drawback with using southpaw is that its very difficult and awkward to free look in the cockpit like the really good PC jet pilots do. I'm definitely up for recording together. Pretty much every time I play I'm going to record from now on. Zath has helped me the most in jets, It helped me a lot to fly with him. Haven't played with spyder and snake in forever but they are good in jets too.
post #12196 of 16243
I like the g3a3, when i pick it up =(. I neverunlocked it, double =(.
Legacy flight with inverted sticks is where its at for me. Throttle and trigger in the right places.
post #12197 of 16243
The G3 was also a favorite of mine. Small clip and only noticed it in firefights with multiple opponents. I should be back to BF3 when aftermath hits. I am having a blast with the new zombie mode in Blops 2.

Damn Trail that was an awesome Tank rape on Seine! And that was a great Jet rape too! Nice videos. Sorry for crashing into you and nose diving the helo into the ground. I think I crashed into the ground 6 times that match.

Hapi I'm curious , did you just get tired of the G3A3, or do you feel it is not as good as guns you use these days?

Sweet, I wonder if you can shoot the enemy at their spawn from there.

I felt like I was cheating using it, and I felt bad for the people I was playing against so I ditched it. The gun ridiculous if you post up with the bipod. The other reason is, I like to run around rather than post up, so I switched to rifles that are easier to shoot while moving.

It helped having a gunner so I could get out and rep my reactive armor. I watched the vid when I uploaded it and at one point it looked like I ditched nexus and shmoop at A when driving to D. Sorry guys I don't know what I was thinking or what was going on with chat at the time. That was a great comeback on that match though.

No worries on the crashing in the jet or helo. We all do it.

If you see me on and want to get the coop weapons let me know
post #12206 of 16243
When I think of the co-op I think of the "fire from the sky" map and then think of the videos I have seen where people get out of the chopper and run around killing people but die when the vehicles come out.

You could land the chopper and get out during that mission? Huh.. never thought to try.

Yeah, I looked for the videos I saw but couldn't find them. You have to land in the water and then you can get out.

Lol, I hear ya man.

I remember someone posting a video in this thread about the chopper thing in coop. I think it was that Doom guy who has those shenanigan vids. Maybe Zath posted it, he used to post a bunch of vids earlier in this thread.
