Bad Company 2 Multiplayer - Very Small Rant and a Question lol - Page 3

post #21 of 35
Coming from a lengthy CS background as you OP, and I do mean lengthy as in since the 6.9 beta stage, you have to understand they're two completely different play styles.

Example:

In CS (old and new) a single player in a 5v5 scrimmage could wipe out the entire other team; a single player in a 10v10 or 12v12 or even larger public server could also wipe out the entire team. Winning the 'round', maybe enough rounds wins the map too.

In BFBC2, this just isn't possible. The game dynamics don't allow for it. Meaning, while you may very well be able to annihilate the other team (kill all of them) you still won't win the round or the map.

BFBC2 is extensively much more team-oriented and based with many different levels of play style available to the individual, this augments the game. On top of that you have much larger maps, bad network coding (just like in the original Source engine), a lot of non-teamwork going on in public servers, and various other things.

In any case the unlock system is supposed to help you by teaching you to work as a team. You earn more points joining a squad and helping out your squad mates. If you don't help them out, you won't get the points quickly.

The weapons you start off with aren't all that hot so that you can (presumably) nail down the basics before you get a wep that has some perks with it.

my first thought was snipers in the game sucked, for the same reason you did, but now i get headshots every time with my GOl and even the first sniper is amazing if u know how to use it. The game has reaslistic bullet drop, so aim abit over them and u should do fine. U must be used to playing COD or something, shoot someone in the foot and they die is just not realistic
I most certainly dont expect that lol... But I do expect a decent torso shot (organs and what not) to result in a kill... But I conceed that it might be realism over fun here... Though I reckon if they just limited how many people could be snipers it would solve that issue...

When you are playing and unlocking guns, the newer ones do appear to be better but as you play on you will realize which gun gets you the most kills.

Picking up other dead people's kit is a good idea, I did that alot too.
Hmm maybe... Im undecided... Like I dont see many rank 30+ players using the low guns that Im using lol.

I dunno.

My favorite guns tend to be closer to the default than the max. Every weapon feels perfect for me.. there is no one good weapon, but there are a couple bad ones.

IMO,
The ARs after the AEK are garbage.
The SMGs after the Scar are *meh*.
The SRs after the M24 are trash.

Only exception is the XM8, which I personally really like



As for the non-1hk sniper rifles, I'm really graceful for that.

u may think your shooting organs but with the bullet drop your probably not really hitting them where u think. also the sights on the first gun and the gol are probably the best, and they are both awesome guns.

and most of the 30+ players probably like the play style of the upper guns, but overall they might have a certain advantage, but then a weakness the other guns don't have. And if all the players had the same guns if they played for 2 years or 2 minutes where would be the fun in that?

Pretty much every FPS game requires you to unlock new guns.

you stop unlocking weapons pretty early on anyway....


when you unlock magnum bullets , your kills will go up a lot, especially in sniping. Playing without magnum bullets is pretty dumb unless you are playing medic, in which case you should be not worrying about kills anyway.

Most my sniper kills to date I have been damn sure I was hitting the torso... Its had not to when they are like 50 meters away lol.. Even then I have to lead again and take another shot to kill them...

So get magnum bullets check... I think Im working towards the red dot now lol so thats something... Do medic get red dots also? I havent really played that class...
post #29 of 35
I can't really tell the difference between magnum with sniper and magnum without... it still isn't a 1HK to the torso, but it gives you a 25% higher chance to kill them if they are lit up.

As for the red dots, IMO, they are useless. No zoom at all, instead a huge ass red dot making you unable to see where you are shooting. Not only that, it takes up a weapon spec

fix all your problems by not sniping. 99% of snipers are worthless burdens on their teams.

yes it is frustrating that you dont have the "uber" weapons, but they really arent much better. what sucks is not having magnum or body armor and all that stuff.

protip: you can buy the specops pack and get all the best weapons for each class right away. but that wont make you better at the game. practice is all it takes, and some of those freakin nerds on that game do nothing but play, so its really hard to NOT get owned even if you play for a month.
