Bad Company 2 Multiplayer - Very Small Rant and a Question lol

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Hi All

Um I know this is old news lol but Ive recently started playing Bad Company 2 online multiplayer and I have a few questions...

But firstly the rant lol:
Why is it that I have to unlock weapons and stuff? This seems like the most stupidest thing I have ever heard? It just seems stupid that the so called "better" players get better weapons that the new players? How is that fair or even? It just means that new players regardless of skill get owned by more "experienced" players cause of the poor weapon choice... It just compounds the ownage to be honest... Not only are new players trying to get used to the mechanics of the game, getting used to the maps and trying to learn but on top of that the old players get a massive weapon advantage as well... That just seems stupid...

Now Im a player from CS days of old... Though havent really kept up with online FPS multiplayer though I was decent at CS back in the day (not awesome, but decent I could usually hold my own quite well on the net) and anyway the CS system seems better to me... Where each round you start with limited means and then by performing well you get better weapons for that round... But you all start evenly thats the point here...

Bad Company 2 seems ridiculous... So bad in fact that me and my mate have decided to just use one account as it takes so long to level up and unlock stuff... Ive played I dont know like 5 or 6 hours on the weekend and I still havent unlocked a bloody red dot sight (or reflect sight or whatever the game calls it)...

So whats the deal with all this? Lol end rant...

Now the question (which might turn into a rant)

Is there any sniper rifle that can kill someone one shot? I have unlocked two now (so I have three, the first one, then a semi auto one and now another bolt action) but all three require at least two shots to kill someone? So Im wondering is there any realistic sniper rifle? Whats the point of being a sniper if you cant kill anyone?

All in all Im liking the game... Seems to be a good mix of run and gun with more tactical play... I played COD a bit but found that was way to run and gun for my liking (I still fondly remember CS 1.x days where if you shot first you killed first instead of players taking numerous hits and still being alive lol)... So Im liking BC2 dispite the above... Just would love some opinions on the matter...

Cheers

To answer your question:
Shoot them in the head, like a good sniper should.

The unlockable weapons are in no way 100% "better" than the weapons you start with. They're all there just for preference. Sure, the last unlockable weapon for a class may shoot faster or more accurately than the first weapons you started with, but it deals less damage. The game is great, believe me. I was in your spot before I bought the game. I played the beta, and played through a friend's account, and wasn't at all happy with how far it was from BF2. After actually buying the game and putting more time into it, developing the proper "rhythm" of gameplay BC2 was meant to be played with, it became my favorite game.

I swear even some head shots dont kill... Though I could be wrong on that one...

I dont care if Im not the perfect sniper lol... But hitting a head at 500 meters is damn near impossible I dont care who you are... Especailly if the target is moving, jumping ducking etc... Im not saying Im the man or anything... But torso shots with sniper rifles should down someone...

Also... Does BC2 have like windage? Bullet drop etc?

it has bullet drop, also play hardcore, bullets in hardcore kill, they dont in softcore

Maybe... But from my experience so far every weapon Ive unlocked is better than the last... And I havent even got a bloody sight yet haha other than iron sights... You cant tell me that aint an advantage?

Most guns in BC2 boil down to a matter of preference or play style, not necessarily bad guns.

Now I do agree with you that unlocking things like Red Dot Sight and Magnum Ammo does take too long.

If you play assault, XM8 has the best iron sights, and is actually one of the better guns for the class.

Even the M95 with magnum ammo wont kill in one shot if you hit anywhere besides the head. As one who snipes in almost any every game i play i found that somewhat annoying too. But all of the snipers one shot kill on a headshot. Playing a lot of cod made me used to one shot kill body shots so BC2 was kind of a fresh style of sniper gameplay to me. The pacing and scale is much larger than COD style gameplay, so for me it is easier to find people standing still/far away that cant see me. I find it much more rewarding when i can make an awesome long distance headshot than quickingscoping for a easy kill like in COD. But if i do start get tons of hitmarkers sniping in BC2, thats when i pull out the mortars lol.

Everything has bullet drop except the tracer darts.

In response to your comment on torso shots: yes, in real life, yes, the majority of people would be on the floor grabbing their leg if they were shot by a 9mm. This is a game, and not a simulator game at that. I thank GOD the snipers aren't one shot in the torso killers. No thanks, if I wanted that I'd still be playing the decade old CS. There are 10 too many snipers in every server out there as it is WITHOUT the one hit kills. 1 hit kills? Expect double the sniper infestation.
