Battlefield 3 - Page 470

Wow Nexus, I was ahead of you in knife kills a couple weeks ago, and now your way past me! You're definitely the best specialized killer among us.

Got back into BF BC2 and played some Vietnam last night. Wow, I forgot how great that expansion was, so much fun.

Wow, pretty cheap...$120.

Here's a couple of videos I really like.

First one...well you learn something new everyday. He refers to it as European Hip Fire. You start out aiming down sight (ADS ing), then you keep holding down the fire button while stop ADS ing and hip fire (lets you move around to avoid bullets). Your crosshair adjusts eventually to a larger cone of fire, or the normal cone for hip fire. The ADS cone is smaller. But as soon as you let go of the fire button it immediately goes back to the large cone / non ADS crosshair cone. Interesting...

The second one shows you how the M240B machine gun works. He shows you how it handles with and without adjusting for recoil, and explains how nice of a gun this is when you master the bursting of it.

I really, really like this gun, and this video is spot on. You really have to get a feel for how to open up with these bigger machine guns, and slowly adjust to full auto with less bursting. But once you get it to settle down and get into a rhythm with it, it is pretty special when taking on large groups of people at close distances. I also like it for longer distances. I mainly use the red dot sight with it myself.

I gotta stop playing CQ Metro. It's damaging my already crappy K/D.

The same thing is happening to me with all these damned assignments. But I don't really care. With BF4 coming up, everything is moot. I remember how crazy into stats I was with BC2. Then I realized a month or so after starting BF3 that stats don't really matter, since everyone's back to zero on a new game smile.gif.

Says the guy with a Stats link in his sig...

I don't know what it is, but I love looking at stats. Thankfully I'm not so stat crazy that I let it influence my style of play, so you'll never see me playing smart to protect my precious K/D or anything.

MPH - nice videos. I tried out that M240 technique last night and it worked really well. Interested in trying it out on smaller maps tonight if I get the chance.

Got my chopper tank destroys done last night thanks to Brian (and not thanks to Hapi tongue.gif). Here's our best match from the night. Enjoy!

Finally got my RU service medal. After 680 hours of game time!

I am beginning to think Dice doesnt want people to play during double XP. The next double XP is during Mothers Day and we had one on Valentines Day and another holiday I cant remember. Cmon now.

Sounds like they don't like women.

Played Gun Master last night with Brianbat last night and that mode pisses me off so much. I still need the top 5 player assignment and it's killing me. I hate using those pistols!! I get killed alot but most of the time, I bump into a cluster of people and manage to take out a few at one time.

You forgot me! I played for 1.2 rounds. Quit after realizing it just wasn't going to happen. It's become apparent to me that lag is just not on my side when it comes to on-foot engagements. Yesterday or the day before, Hapi killed me with his 93r after I had shot him in the face with my Jackhammer about 4 or 5 times with hitmarkers. Yet he was at 41% health. He told me from his point of view, he thought he caught me by surprise and was able to kill me easy. Engagements like this have led me to realize that I just can't compete in infantry based maps without a significant disadvantage. That disadvantage is often overcome with explosives and other things that don't depend on a specific bullet hitting a specific box. Perhaps that's why I loved USAS and frags so much!

Either way, I see no point in even trying gunmaster unless we can get into Lazy's server, set it to private, and kick out all but say 4 people. That way everyone finishes top 5 and everyone gets the achievement/m5k and it's done. Until then, I have TONS of other assignments to work on.

CHEATER! This kind of nonsense is not allowed on my server. If I allow this then I will need 4 of you to stand still while I place C4 and blow your asses up, 4 times.

Works for me!

Talked to my IT guy at work about my issues. Going to try some things tonight smile.gif

I didn't think of it at the time, but we should've posted clips of that encounter for comparison.

From my POV I anticipated you coming around the corner of that office and got the drop with my pistol which was aimed at head level. Because I got the drop your shots were likely suppressed and not on target.

Similar thing happened 2 weekends ago... Spyder lost it because he was chasing me, fired a clip into my back, and I turn around and kill him with a couple quick bursts. Then a second time, he was coming around the corner of a building, I anticipated firing even before I saw him, and took him out immediately. But from Spyder's perspective he got several shots into me rounding the corner with a shotty, but I sustained no damage! That would've been another good clip to post.

Wacky game.
post #14088 of 16243
I recorded it. Do you still have yours? It was Kharg Rush.
post #14089 of 16243
Unfortunately not.
post #14090 of 16243
Shotguns are supposedly not supposed to get as suppressed as highly as other weapons, and I also believe pistols do not get suppressed at all. I could be wrong on both accounts. I've heard people complain about lag between players that are geographically far about in the world. But not sure how it all works. I do specifically remember one night I went from an east coast server to a west coast server and the difference was extreme.

Good games tonight. Sorry for the knifes Zath...I know first hand from Nexus. Oh and I somehow unlocked a gun tonight, after I knifed somebody. The MP443 with no attachments. I have no idea why I got it though...hmm.

I meant to put these up the other day. LevelCap and his buddy Matimio riding around on Dirtbikes and C4 everything. Pretty good clips here. A couple times they ramp over vehicles while dropping C4 and getting the kill on vehicles, pretty solid really.

Does anyone use mics? I just built a pc and have been playing but can't seem to find people to play with that actually use a mic..
post #14093 of 16243
no worries, MPH. I wish I was recording it. If I wasn't using that stupid LVG, I could at least defend myself from your knife. I wish I was recording the match, though. You just kept popping out of everywhere! Got my top 5 in gun master and that's all I really care about.

Lag seems to be improved over last night. Here's what my IT guy suggested:

1. Make sure cable modem has no firewall.

2. Get rid of any/all port forwarding.

3. Set xbox on a specific IP.

4. Put xbox in the DMZ.
post #14094 of 16243
Good games last night even tho I sucked royally at it. I was stuck on the JNG-90 forever like 0-12. (reverse gun master) The problem with me is, I used it like a AR and not thinking about long shots. Pissed! But I did manage to get top 5 after we kicked a random. LOL.. I really felt bad for him but all hate mail will be sent to MPH. I kinda like GM for a change. Probably try it again tonight with a full room.

Zath, did you recently change the router or something?

Mike Clough #24: we always use a mic when playing on xbox.
post #14095 of 16243
Every time I'm on (rarely) I don't see you guys on anymore but will try to get on tonight if people are on.

lol seriously. I've gotten almost all the assignments but that damn rambo one, have 2/5 so far am I'm sure if I just keep playing I'll get it eventually but don't have that much time anymore. On console it should have been one multikill since we don't have those 64 players servers that PC does.

I checked your stats. The message must of come up late but once you get 100 kills with the MP443 you unlock the gun to be used on a kit when you play on the US side.

4. Put xbox in the DMZ.

I followed the port forward website and have no issues I'm aware of. It has been a year or two since I configured mine so I may not remember it all though. http://portforward.com/cports.htm

You dont need to port forward if you DMZ the Xbox since it puts it outside your network. DMZ is much quicker and easier to set up. Port forward might be a little more secure.

UPNP can be an issue but I dont remember why. Think I disabled mine on the router. If memory serves it was because UPNP takes a couple minutes to establish connections and can be problematic between different consoles running at the same time.

Static IP needed for port forwarding, not sure if needed on DMZ unless your router wants a specific IP to put there.

Make sure you have a good DNS provider too. Comcast here hasn't always been great and you can get a generally slow (no) connection while its hunting an address. May not be as much an issue now. Can't remember if I'm still using OpenDNS or not.

My router is 100% setup for my Xbox, so remember, these settings are for one device only, your PS3 or other console may suffer a bit because of it if applicable.

I did get that Gun Master game recorded. A 27 minute game, but I managed to cut it down to under 11 minutes by only showing all my kills and deaths.

At around the video's 4:00 mark I start knifing, it just kind of happened. I think I was mainly trying to get Zath because he was in the lead, but I kept getting HK a bunch too, and of course Lazy needs to get knifed whenever possible. I knifed Zath for the first time around 6:00. At around 9:00 minutes I knife Zath and his body goes flying off the balcony...lols.

Yes it was a little evil, but it was kind of funny. Zath was kicking ass, was pretty far in the lead and well on his way to his first Gun Master win (I believe). When he got to his LVG grenade launcher kill, I kept sending him back down to the JNG-90 (his favorite gun I'm sure.) because I would knife him. Happi ended up winning and Zath came in third.

You know I think we could make a pretty fun game of this. Something like a knife only team vs a gun only team. Or maybe split it up into two teams and make some people dedicated knifers and others dedicated gunners for each team. I actually think something along those lines could be pretty darn fun. What do you guys think? Got any ideas?

I stopped watching at the 4:05 mark. Obviously thats when the cheating starts.
