    Played last night after a few months' absence. CTF was a lot of fun (32 man server) and the engineer seems to be the to-go class. I did notice that my Javelin was locking on choppers. Was this something they changed recently? Or is it a bug in this map? Or maybe it's SOFLAM being buggy?
    I'm still thinking about it...

    Javelins can lock onto any vehicle, ground and air, that has been laser designated (SOFLAM and maybe certain vehicle unlocks).

    I've recently made the switch from normal mode to full time hardcore. Much more fun and challenging. Current favourite weapon is the G3A3 with 3.4x scope.

    might have just been a display bug where you didn't see the designation. SOFLAM or CITV in 3rd tank seat. Unless one of those 2.. there is no reason for a javelin to lock an air vehicle without designation

    you gonna have hard time going back normal. the reason why i do not like HC is that after playing it in BC2 i noticed that i can not play BC2 in normal due to getting used to kill enemy with fewer shots.

    when you go back to normal you need to get used to shoot more to kill a single enemy.

    I started BF3 on hardcore, just because my friend who's very used to FPS wanted to, so I never "went back" to normal, but I'd have to agree with this. Changing from Hardcore to Normal, whether you've played normal before or not, is a goddamn pain in the ass. Depending on how steady your aim is (I tend to spray a bit) it takes almost a full mag to take down a single opponent, making med kits so so powerful in that mode.

    It didn't make me dislike HC though, I just never ever play normal anymore. Unless I've been away for a while, I go into normal to warm up ^^


    Just a random thought: Has anyone ever come across a bug where you can't die? I'm not sure what happened - and believe me I've tried to make it happen again - but somehow I didn't take any damage. I was running around in metro rush and slaughtered people, when my friend noticed that people from the side were shooting at me, with no effect. After screaming at me to rush in and shoot everything I noticed that I was invincible, or at least for some time. After killing another 15 or so people I died. Not sure if it was because there were 5 guys spraying at me or if the bug fixed itself and I died. Note: As it was unintentional, no one got mad, and my streak ended at around 20-25 kills, and I got too greedy to even try to go for the m-com, so no one really cared. Everyone wanted to know how it happened, though.

    What I believe made it happen was that I got killed, by a grenade, but I was revived by my friend the very second I died (as he saw I was going to die from the nade) and I think the game just went nuts and thought I was in limbo or something.

    This all happened several months ago, and might not work anymore, and while I tried to make it happen again for my friend (he goes on mad streaks without being immortal), now I just want to know if anyone else has had a similar experience, or knows why it happened.

    Only way I know to be invincible is to spawn and not press any buttons. You should try and replicate it but if DICE caught wind it probably has been fixed, and you may get banned on some servers.

    Since it was several months ago I'm thinking it has been fixed, it would just be fun to know how/why it really happened.

    all you have to do is just run with op weps like bolt action or shotgun

    Goes both ways, you die quickly if you run around thinking you're invincible because the opponent dies in a few shots.

    Hehe ^^

    If you don't mind me asking, what attachments do you usually run with when you play with the P90? I checked your sig and noticed that you have over 1k kills with it. I really enjoyed using the P90 in MW2 but for some reason (haven't used it in forever) I didn't really like it in BF3. I think it may have been because of its default scope. I know guns don't act the same way in different games since they're not acting as in reality 100%, but I'm just curious about what you roll with it

    kobra, silencer and/or lazor (not sure if you can use both)
    its very cqc focused setup as im playin on ziba all the time ^^

    yeah scopes on NATO weps sucks and it takes a while to unlock russian optics
    only reflex is decent but blocks too much screen compared to kobra (which i use on all weapons)

    I see, thanks for letting me know It'll probably be a pain unlocking the kobra scope, but hopefully it'll be worth it!

    I'd have to disagree there. As Badhairday said above it goes both ways plus the other handicaps such as no 3D spotting, kill cam (so you know where a pesky camper is), friendly fire, health doesn't regenerate unless near a med pack or engineer repairs your vehicle so you can be running around with a grey screen for a while, sometimes a 2 meter drop will count as suicide >.< etc.

    Also I hate using shotguns and when I go recon I usually play as a forward person, sneaking around with my AS VAL and putting radio beacons for my squadies to spawn off of.

    yes but game balance is broken
    on normal g3a3 high dmg per shot is compensated by low ammo capacity and rate of fire
    on hardcore it doesnt matter because you can kill in 1 headshot or 2 chest shots and 3 shot past 30m and even at 90m on normal at 90m you need 5 shots (theoretically ammo allows you to kill 20ppl while on normal 6, below 20m), low rate of fire also is neglected because ppl die so fast its not about how fast wep can shoot but who shoot 1st

    when I go recon I usually play as a forward person, sneaking around with my AS VAL and putting radio beacons for my squadies to spawn off of
    put lazor and kobra or iron sights on any bolt action and you have rail gun there is no need to stay back as recon because your wepon is 1 chest shot kill below 100m (with the exception of sv98)


    obviously play whatever you want ;p
    im just pointing out why i dislike hardcore

    I was thinking more about creeping around and putting up spawn beacons in good places, but if you do that too then sweet!

    NOTHING annoys me more in this game than people who do not use their extra stuff. Being on a losing team in a round where if you die, you see people rolling assault that doesn't even try to revive you (while being really close and the area is somewhat safe).. all of my rage. >.<

    That 17min video of gameplay looks amazing. The environmental details are incredible, but what amazed me the most was how you could tap the weapon to the side to use the default scope. Simple but awesome! Imo BF3 is a great game, and I can't think of much to improve upon, so I'll probably get excited about anything that they come up with Sadly I only really play with 1 friend, and he moved across the world, but it looks like he'll be back in time for BF4. IT'S OOOOOOOOOON!

    Class balance imo, so we don't end up with medics vs medics again
