Bah, good point. Although I would set at 60FPS/Hz first and work your settings to help with tearing. Start with a default and then work your way up. + rep for the valid point.

I dont think i have been taken out my one jet doing this since adopting the tactic... The jets that ram choppers though, well, if i see them i try to dodge them tongue.gif

I'm a pretty experienced chopper pilot myself and i do find that jets really are the bane of my existence. Especially the ones that persistently harass, which give me no choice but to attempt to engage. Otherwise i'm forever on the defensive and completely unable to participate in the fight for my team.

There's very little a chopper pilot can do to avoid an incoming jet unless:

1. it's spotted

2. you're able to anticipate his approach and either engage or evade appropriately, which again, requires him to be spotted so you can see on the minimap where he is. Additionally, evading in any RUS chopper is harder as they're substantially less agile then WEST choppers.

To evade, if I've got reasonable altitude i just cut throttle and nosedive, whatever gets me down the quickest, and find cover. If i'm already low down, i just fly about erratically till i get a sense of where he is, and find appropriate cover. If he's closing in directly from above, you're screwed. The only chance you have is to move erratically and make yourself a difficult target.


I find that to engage a jet, you can only really use heatseekers and you rely heavily on your gunner. Regular missiles just won't cut the mustard even if you have it lined up perfectly, because the jet moves too fast and, likely, will be facing you firing his guns, which makes him a pretty small surface area for your missiles to hit even with guided ones - it doesn't stop me trying though if i get desperate.

The first part of this video i uploaded shows how i usually engage a jet:




Now, trying to be unbiased when i say this but eh; i genuinely feel jets are OP. They can turn on a dime, crawl to ridiculously slow speeds, and don't get me started on jet ramming and the number of times they've escaped undamaged from doing it. it's not on. Lining up targets is so easy in a jet cos of this.

Why do tanks steer like a whale in this game and my tank keeps drifting and getting stuck on pebbles

You're using the tank speed boost. Let go of the tank speed boost and you won't start drifting, when you're going down hills etc.

RUS tank was it? They're notorious for doing that. RUS vehicles are terrible.

Anyone else felt that bc2 players actually played like a squad in public games compared to bf3 it is like im playing singleplayer with bots that when it is time to communicate they only spout memes and troll comments.

I also liked how in bc2 99% of buildings were destroyable but in this there are many that aren't and all the reocn just pile up on it like gulf of oman and strike at karkand
