I wish they'd add the scavenger game mode to the existing maps but apart from that, looks good so far!

oh yah just need tme to DL it :D cause I'm premium :P hehe, so i already HAZ ZIS

 

can't believe some people don't have this amazing game yet!!!

 

one game when i was at DP map inside the tunnel a crazy but VERY skilled chopper pilot flew right inside the tunnel and was gunning us down and I happened to have my trusty RPG with me so i just gave him one in the face as he flew past me and he exploded into a fire ball that kept flying in the direction he was going...it was an epic James bond/ mission impossible moment

 

no body does it better than BF3 :D

i want earthquakes to happen as your playing, that would make it feel more intense. Also if new game mode dosent have random spots for guns . then it will just be like any old school shooter where you had to go to the "Gun spots" of maps.  which will be blah

Looks real swell. I thought that the armored kill maps were good but the gunship was crap and tank superiority was awful. Scavenger looks actually really fun

Oh frig I can't wait! Just traded in BF3 for the premium version for £39.99 at HMV, what a deal.............this is by far the best FPS out there!

Scavenger sounds pretty bad ass to play. Can't wait to be back from this damn deployment and get down on some MUCH NEEDED gaming! LOL Got a lot of catching up to do this holiday season ;-)

scavenger sounds alot like how fps's originaly started, start with a crap weapon, find the guns and ammo scattered around the map. anyone else picking this up?

Can't wait till I can get my hands on this drop. Looks better than Armored Kill IMO. Which I was sort of disappointed. Those large maps really need 32 or even 64 players per game. Too much driving and running around.. not enough action. Aftermath looks more medium sized maps. yay!

Unstoppable Battlefield. In the aftermath of ... Well... Aftermath, Battlefield 4 beta is prepared to deploy. Hell yeah!

looks F...ing amazing!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY random factor, like aftershocks!!!!! NICEDICE!

Now if the aftershocks were random in frequency, severity,  and location and could possibly cause more destruction depending on where they struck and the severity of them that would be awesome. Imagine your in a building and an aftershock happens to strike and parts of the building start to break apart...... or your driving along and one strikes causing the terrain your driving on to suddenly shift... well you get the idea.

I wonder if you can still gain XP in the new game mode? Seeing as there are no classes in it you wont be able to rank up your classes but can you still gain XP for your main level to use in other game types?

 @blastmaster2k2 if you play BF3 on consoles you will face this problem cuz with only 24 players in the map you may not find anyone and get killed by a sniper 1000 meter away

but on pc with 64 player with every step you will find solders,tanks,APCs,helos and mines with tons of action

you don't need to move  they will find you!!!

 @Romayo83 Armoured kill (the game is just shite) but the new maps are just a dream, totally loving armoured sheild map - you can't beat Quad bike + C4 for fun lol

 @thenathmeister1 i think you get to choose which class you want to start with and you'd get xp for that class if you find a weapons and get kills with it it will unlock xp for just that weapon

 @jonnybutler11  @blastmaster2k2 Yeah I agree, if the maps are to big for you then get close quarters expansion but I haven't played a game on battlefield without meeting  someone every few seconds, the maps are pure chaos...awesome chaos

thenathmeister1

 @p4kman88 Yeah that sounds about right, but what if you're a level 1 and you havent unlocked any new weapons yet? How can you upgrade weapons you don't have yourself?

 @vadagar1 listen squinty even battlefield is in the 'arcade' genre.  I play shooters in the 'simulator' category.  

 

Now go to bed its past your bedtime son.

 @thenathmeister1  In Close Quarters when you first played Gun Master you didn't have most of those weapons.  But each kill still counted for the weapon.
