Yeah well only panzies who suck wang at BF3 use shotguns and frag rounds. Seriously, talk about no F'in skill. So all of you who are butthurt about it can stop crying and actually use legit weapons instead of being a snatch all day. thumbs down my comment all you want you little noobtubers and shotgun whores. you're all pathetic. go play halo or call of duty where you belong.
they have slowed down the USAS-12 and toned down the frags, seriously whats the point of shotguns if they are toning them down all the time. You need shotguns that can compete with other guns in the game, now they have toned them down its pointless using shotguns. worked bloody hard getting the USAS now it cant shoot for sh%t even at close range, people complain about it being too powerful, have you seen the power and range of a shotgun in real life or watching documentaries Its Crazy. and people complain about dying all the time, well simple DONT RUN in the open and play better then..... also Snipers need to have a grappling hook, we had it in BF2 on PC why not now. Snipers need high grounds, nothing wrong with that....make it happen people keep dying, then complain that weapons are too powerful, guess what, thats the point, they Kill. You keep dying, means your not playing well.....
Soooo Attack helicopters are still OP to the feck Thats my analysis anyway. Good job with the USAS frag rounds though, metro should now be playable at least. Can anyone confirm that they added ext.mags to AS VAL? or is that a myth.
@ck10304 No they didn't remove the frag rounds completely, however they did nerf them enough to the point where people don't use them constantly and spam them
If you want to play competitively, consoles are actually a really good choice for keeping your coffee mug warm.
The patch effed up EVERYTHING! All of the guns now bounce around like there is no foregrip at all. USAS (thank god for this) is now slow as hell and basically useless. LMGs are now terribly inacurate no matter what you have equipped. Flashlight still absorbs bullets and makes you practically invincible. They made the MAV blow up once you hit anything and can no longer ride it, thats fine. The most annoying thing that the patch did though, when changing your loadout, if you change guns in the general screen (not when you select the gun menu to change its scope and whatnot) but the general loadout, if you change guns, then select the gun, it goes back to the previous gun you had selected. pain in the ass. Patch messed up a lot more things than it fixed
@stealthyninja81 not if all the choppers still have unlimited flares. they need to fix that. looks like they havent. like the other user said, 3 flares max sounds about right. not unlimited.
@ROTTENCORPSE666 did you miss the part about faster and more powerful stingers? yes they dont have as much range but if they are spawn camping it seems like 2 people could easily take it down with a faster lock on and 1-hit disables.
If you read the entire update list, it favors the overpowered air vehicles...not to mention the ability to take those vehicles and hover over the spawn of the opposing team is just pure insanity. They need to fix this...FAST. I love the game but it gets frustrating when there are choppers and planes above the spawn and then it takes so long for rockets to lock on. Not to mention you dont have to land a chopper to fix it...WTF? Then you have unlimited flares as well, come on ...at least limit the flares to 3 per vehicle spawn so people have a fair chance of shooting one down. As in rush, when you take a base, the team just waits in the spawn to get cheap kills, why not just make the previous MCOMM points an out of boundry area when they are destroyed so the other team has to fall back and not just camp the new spawn.
@hauntedsound who says you have to? Get a wireless keyboard + mouse and sit on your couch with a table in front of you or w/e and you could still play your PC on a huge screen if you have a nice graphics card
To all the debaters about pc vs. console I think most people miss the point. I agree that with the right system a computer gives you more control and better graphics, but I am willing to sacrifice a little to be able to lay on my couch with a controller in front of my 70" led. It's more about entertainment and comfort. Nobody wants to sit at a desk for hours on end, that's what work is for.
As for the carpet rides I totally did not like them, looked silly to me. I feel that there are plenty of places for recon to snipe, and if there isn't, voice your concern and I'm sure in the next patch they can add ladders to more buildings.
I agree with the other guy talking, snipers belong on rooftops. Considering Battlefield is supposed to be the "realistic" alternative, "realistically" you wouldn't see snipers running around on the ground in a war. Maybe just make more roofs accessible via ladder or something, but this is a major nerf for the recon class.
So does anyone know if they fixed the fecking menus screwing up and overlapping eachother on the 360 version , a right pain in the arse.
I like the changes, they r not just about balance they feel like they r aimed to help players to develop a more personal playing style.
Great news on the removal of the MAV carpet ride... I hated campers just sticking themselves on top of the overpass on Tehran Highway sniping all match long - it ruined the experience for me!
4:39 "Pretty much r***** the map... Well done, if you use that word in the forums you get moderated, but im glad the employees can use it on videos... Censorship and hypocriusy at its best (Sorry if he didnt said that or if is not a employee)
So happy with this patch, those MAV's and Fragged USAS users were getting on my nerves. Everything seems to be a nice change, and I will definitely be putting a ton more time into this game (even though I've reached 45 already).
Well I gotta say that I love the patch. everything feels perfect now. weapons and other gameplay tweaks. tank damages ect. No more mav retards and slightly less USAS heroes who should just go home and be family men. Good stuff.
@Reuwsaat The stingers range has been decreased but it's more powerfull and locks on quicker to compensate As for snipers they will have to climb now or use a chopper to get into good positions like everyone else
Ok i hope my word get to EA After i read that there will be a patch, i quickly removed my chair i was sitting on & got on my knees as i am typing this. So here is my request. Please fix your issues with GTX 560 Ti Hawk. I have tried everything but it just doesn't work. Stop playing the blame game of Nvidia saying a broken game while EA saying broken drivers.
@chechak7 Pfft. If you want small maps and no vehicle boooooring-fest, go play the fish shooter, otherwise known as Cod.
I like Battlefield 3 but honestly I still prefer Bad Company 2 I miss being able to demolish everything.
If you are excited about the CqB DLC, go buy CoD. Battlefield 3 is a masterpiece, other than fixing a few rare' bugs, it's perfect. I love it as it is and hope they don't destroy it to make it more appealing to new players. :\ also @CieloPerso Just wait until the new DLC, trolls will torture everyone. Haha
i think it will be better Ch-ch-ch-Changes is to put new close range maps (no vehicles) and slow motion execution and new funny awards
Couldn't you have waited until after you reviewed the changes before toking up? Uhhh... Uhhmm.... Ehhh...
What do you mean? You can cook grenades, press the throw grenade button and then quickly hold down the right trigger to cook, then release!
I've been enjoying Battlefield 3 on the Xbox 360 for over two months now. Got around 11-12 of my mates to switch to it (cause we were all disappointed by the disaster that MW3 turned out to be). My only and BIGGEST problem with Battlefield 3 is how there is no sort of lobby (there is squad mode), but the problem is that when we do join a game, the party gets split up and sometimes we get put on the enemy team when we intended to play on the same team. Another small fix would be the ability to cook grenades... that'll be awesome too :) Other than that, I'm pleased with BF3.
Why can't you cook grenades? Or have flashbangs? Or customize your classes before the match? Maybe I'm talking too much about "That-other-FPS", but you gotta port over things that it does right. BF3 is by far my most favorite FPS for multiplayer online, but only because of the ambience, sound, graphics and realism. They got to put these features in to make it more easier for "That-other-FPS" player's to adjust!
I wish they would do something with chopper gunner main cannon damage to other flying vehicles. Chopper dogfights in the first few seconds of a match on the B2K maps are annoying as hell. Some of the maps give defending chopper pilots a major altitude advantage making it very difficult to even get out of spawn for attacking pilots. I have literally been locked onto before the match starting timer counts down.
@Mifflinite45 I still can't believe it's not butter! Oh and I'm pretty sure your thinking of Call of Duty. I see how you got them confused but, just for future reference, this is the good one.
