BF2142: pick my next unlock string

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So I've been playing for about a week.. almost all Support, (hella easy getting points in the begining ... ). Unlocked the left string up to the Ganz, but now I've got 2 unlocks waiting to be used up.

Should I work up the other support string, or is there something better out there?

And is there a worthwhile difference between the Clark 15-B and the 12-RDX?

Shotgun is great on close range support like Titan or Camp G. The RDX shotgun lobs explosives which denonate after like 3s.

What maps do you play? I say go for another tree for now. Did you unlock the abilities stuff yet?
Once again...

i <3 assault w/ the medipack (edit - plus the reviving thingie), rifle rockets, and baur/voss. makes titan assaults easier
but then again i always tend to drift to medic classes XD

haven't done too much on the support end, although i have used the clark on pickups and it tears things up in Gibraltar and Cerbere (once things get to the middle areas)

*note - have not gotten Northern Strike (or w/e it's called) yet

If you haven't yet, get the Sprintcor and Staminar unlocks.

Having used one of the shotguns now (I picked it up after I Carbined some misled Support assaulting my Titan )... It's a great weapon for close combat. Aim for the face and watch the bodies drop!

I'd suggest going up one of the other lines to spread out your abilities a bit and to try one of them. At least get the Defib in the Assault line.

Edit: If you play Defense a lot and have NS. The PDS-1 or whatever scanner thing at the top of the Ganz line is great for a warning system.

I am a support guy usually, and I really like all the support unlocks excpet the 'rocket' shotgun, not powerful or as useful as the assault rockets. The Infantry radar beacon on the other hand is an AWESOME unlock, great for titan.

Next on I use the most is probably the Engineer string with the Pilum H-AVR, it is great because the enemy cant hear you lock and a good hit takes out a vehicle in one shot. THe motion mines are great also.

I also like the Spec ops side with the machien gun (cant remember the name) - it is useful on the titan to have mines, RDX packs and a gun that you can go head to head with most weapons in the game, as the sinper rifle leaves you a sitting duck on the titan.

As for assault, the Defib is a no-brainer and the rockets and shotgun attachments are great. Both machine guns are good - Voss for short range and Baur for long range 'sniping'.

And the print and stamina unlocks are great too!

My recs:

Defib (assault)
Stamina/Sprint
Infantry Radar (support)
AP Mine (spec ops)
Pilum H-AVR (engineer)
Spec ops Machine Gun (spec ops)
Rockets (assault)

The Lambert Carbine is what you're referring to in the Spec Ops side. And it's an amazing gun

Personally, I love assaulting the Titan with my Park 52. Especially once the core is open, I can take out all of the defenders solo and then drop some RDX ftw

Perfect Titan assault team = Assault with Defib, Support with Ammo hub, and Recon with RDX

Voss + AR Rockets + Extra Rocket Unlock = Killing machine.

Voss for multiple close quarter kills. Once killed 4 guys at close range while dodging their fire. Four AR Rockets into any enemy area is almost a guaranteed kill or three.

Lambert is accurate but noticablly weaker than the assualt rifles.

Voss and the Assault rockets and the Engineer SMG's are my worst enemies. Those SMG's are amazingly efficient guns.

The Lambert does have a bit weaker fire, but it's accuracy makes up for it if you aim at the head.

SMGs are pretty much useless at longer ranges. Since they're rounds are weak, I run up firing non-stop spamming bullets. I hope my volume of bullets and movement is enough to beat more powerful guns. One SMG clip is for 1-2 kills. I don't spam as much with the other guns though.

True, I guess it's just their rate of fire that owns me

A good Assault that can manage the airburst on their rockets will own my sniper
