Just a phase. Sometimes you're just on a server where your whole time is made up of douchebags / lonewolfers and noobs. Or the other team is full of pro's / Clan Members. In the worst case, both.

Happens from time to time.

it's easy to tell if it's you
http://aim400kg.ru/train/?a=fa_mass&ln=en
do this at different times, and then if you are doing bad on this, then you will do worse in game.
e.g when i'm doing good i get 63s, if I am feeling bad I get 70s.


i did the test 5 times, and I'm 36 on the leaderboard.

This has nothing to do with how you do in battlefield or any other game. If you keep playing and do worse as time goes by, it's probly cos u got some bad habit. Find out what r u doing wrong n try to amend it.

this measures reaction time,it has a lot to do with stuff like fps games.more so more precise and fast games,not so much bf3 but still its not pointless.

TC youre just having bad rounds.happens to everyone,dont worry about it

I am worse at BF3 than BC2, but I play Conquest as opposed to Rush... I miss the times I used to carry the team on Rush, the stealth arming of the bomb then having my team back me up. Man I need to start playing Rush again.

You don't have to be a genius to figure it out, unlocked gear is preferable to the gear you start out with.

Not true. Some guns unlock magnified scopes later on and the Kobra sight is the best in the game, usually unlocked fairly fast. You also unlock a lot of guns later that are worse than earlier guns.

Which ones? POW-R and As Val are pretty much better than every early gun, and those shotguns, good lord they are crazy!

Man some of those early guns are trashy, along with the iron sights.

For the assault you get the M416 very early and it's one of the best guns in the game. At the time it wasn't and at the time the AS VAL was pretty sweet, it sawed through people. But right now the AS VAL is pretty weak. You get the F2000 and KH2002 after the M16A3 and M416 and they're worse than both.

And I fvcking loathe shotguns completely. They're incredibly unbalanced and unreliable.

All iron sights effectively suck but it's moot because you unlock new sights extremely fast. Only iron sights that were unbearable were the FAMAS' ones.

If I play any specific game too much I just start just going through the motions. I play best when I mix up the games I play. If you want to improve your raw fps skills try Quake Live, its free and what you learn can carry over to any fps.

For shotguns I use the DAO-12.

I like the red dot and reflex scopes. Can't stand ACOG.

Anything with a zoom is horrible on auto weapons anyway. Slower firing like the AN-94 it's ok I guess but I can't hit anything with an ACOG on auto guns. I always run the Kobra sight, best in the game

That's great, but most people that have unlocked guns use them because many of them are better than the default weaponry. And you're right, it's not an RPG, but there's still an artificial grind implemented by DICE to give the illusion of gameplay depth and replayability. Perhaps I'd put more time into it if all the weapons were unlocked from the get-go. So tell me anyways, if it's not an RPG - why do you have to grind to get the goodies?

.57s

yes

in the rare case you mean 57s, then your mouse aim is with the best CS players. I've only done the test like 5 times before, but yeah.

also the test is a good indicator on how you are feeling, I don't know why some of you guys are saying it has nothing to do with BF3.

Well yes, it doesn't it you don't play with a mouse or just use explosives.

it's more about SPM. Zubin's friend alain. Oh gosh, he has a picture where he is 102-0 in BF3. Yet he can't mouse aim very good at all, he just blew literally everyone on the enemy team up. His explosive spamming skills apparently rival noctis's. Which if true, which I am betting is true after I saw his 102-0 picture, is extremely impressive.

Grind? Ummm...I'm not following.

And for example, when I unlocked the F2000, what makes me want to abandon my M16 forever in favor of this new toy? The F2000 absolutely blows at long range, where i do most of my fighting. Every single weapon has drawbacks to it, so I fail to see how one would want to sit in BF3 "grinding" for guns when all the equipment in the game is useful. Another example is the javelin missile launcher. I'd much rather use the default one any day of the week.

you can compare the guns here
http://symthic.com/bf3-weapon-comparison#01-10-00-00
but basically, m16a3 is the best all rounder


the recoil feels very natural

it's one of the first guns to unlock

for the first set my avg is .33 and 2nd one is .24 i slow down quite a bit on the last set, but my mouse sens in windows is ultra high. But I am def a body shot aimer rather than a hs person, so it makes sense. (Lots of accel and 28cm/360)

I think thats a good choice. I tried to like that gun, but it shoots too weird for me.

Supposely this gun and the burst m16 are regarded as ARs in the game that takes some skill to use.

M416 rivals the M16 now. I still think the M16 is better but the M416 got some nice buffs and I love using it.

M16 is stupidly easy to control and can mow guys down easily. It gets boring to use it after a while. AN-94 and the AUG are really nice and fun to use too
