frustrated with bf3

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Just a disclaimer: this isnt a thread where i call people who are good hackers. and i prolly just suck.

Ive been playing fps games for some time and am pretty decent usually. I was always pretty good in mw2 and even BFBC2 ( fps games i played most)
I got bf3 a week ago and have been playing. I have gotten the hang of maps and have unlocked a ton of guns and attachments but one thing about the game just confuses me.

very often ill see an enemy first, they are partially facing me, i start unloading my gun into them clearly starting to shoot before they notice and start shooting back. and i die from only like 1-2 bullets and they walk away with 60% health after i must have hit them with like 10-20 bullets. people will even have their side turned to me, turn around, and kill me 1-2 hits, after i mow down on them nonstop and still die. and i never spray when farther than a few feet away.
is something wrong with my connection? ( i dont think so i have a good RCN 20 mbps connection) whats the secret with this game?
i shouldnt be losing firefights that I AM STARTING moments before they even register im in front of them. i doubt that all these people instantly get clean headshots on my everytime from retarded distances sometimes.

ill admit more lately then usual I seem to be shooting people and it doesnt feel like its registering the damage...

The other day I unloaded almost a whole mag into a guy from about 20 meters away and he was facing the other direction, and im sure I didnt even get a hitmarker...

Sometimes messing with the network smoothing option will help. Lower for less lag, more for more lag I believe.

Make sure you're playing on servers that are close to you geographically. Also, what weapons are you using?
post #5 of 50
That's nothing, i have flanked enemies and got to their back without been seen and shot it in the head, aiming from no more than a meter or so, shot him twice then he turned around and killed from 1 shot ( I'm sure I haves 100% health) and he got away with only 40% damage. I was like WTF!.
I don't know what is, if the damage calculation of the game is off or what is but also some weapons are WAY overpowered and some are underpowered, they have a lot of work on that matter but I would be happier if they address the big hacker problem they had.

this thread isnt only about winning face to face firefights. but also about people just killing me almost instantly. Just now i was playing and i DIDNT shoot my gun yet, and theres no motion sensors around. i walked aroound a corner and assault kills me like 1 bullet from a HUGE distance with aek-971. i doubt people are so perfect at this game
