Bad Company 2 Questions (BFBC2)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Yeah, I'm one of those noobs who bought this game during it's recent $7.98 sale on Gamersgate and D2D and some other places.

I've got a few questions, hope you people don't mind.

1. Is voice chat broken, or do people just not use it/too busy in Ventrilo and Teamspeak?
I remember seeing a forum post about servers and some VOIP code being bugged, but don't know if that was true or not. And, that was a while back.

2. Why does no one use the text chat, either?

3. How the heck do you learn to fly the choppers!?!?!!

4. Does anyone else get epic screen-tearing whenever they fire the chainguns on the "transport" chopper (dunno its name, someone in the game just referred to it as this)?

1. It's bugged, works for some and not for others. Or people turn it off. You can only talk to your 3 squad mates anyway.

2. Depends on the server. Some are really chatty.

3. Play on an empty server.

4. No.

I agree.

OP, I hope you don't wait this long before you get BF3, it looks like it is going to be amazing!

me too =)
I still can't believe that I only got my BFBC2 because it came with my VGA....
for BF3 I won't be waiting too long to buy one as I already learned my lesson =)
It really is an incredible game =)
I still get myself killed because I forget that I'm playing and stop to admire the scenario and view that this game offers =)=)

Do not fly a chopper in a public server if you do not know how, spend some time in an empty server.

Make sure the axis are or aren't inverted, they are opposite for flying UAV and chopper and you need to manually change them in the settings every time you use them.

1. Didn't seem to work hardly at all when the game first came out but I find that it works great now, I use both in game and vent at the same time with different PTT keys for coms with clanmates, seems pubbers rarely use it though.

2. Seems people use it all the time in my experience.

3. Empty server and lots of practice. Heavy Metal is good since it has all four choppers and they all fly differently.

4. Nope

Kk, thanks for the replies, guys!

And don't worry, I had already pre-ordered BF3 a few months back - knew it was going to be epic, and for $30, it was a steal.

Where did you get it for $30?

Saw a thread in the Online Deals section of OCN, I think.

It was for this website: http://digitalgamesales.com/
Seemed legit, although they did charge me already for the pre-order >.>
