If the APC gets disabled in enemy territory while I'm driving, I stay inside until it blows
If it were me, i'd jump out then finish it off with a AT/C4 explosive...

Or use the tank as a boobytrap and c4 it, ready for then they jump in

Payday is tomorrow. Tomorrow is also the day I pre-order BF3 on Origin.

Don't get me wrong, in game I can't stand snipers, and they are by far my least favourite class to play, but it seems DICE is going all out to limit them.

I don't recall snipers being OP in BF2. Sure you could get a good spot and camp, but given the massive size of the maps and clever map design, you could camp for a half hour in an elevated, hidden position and maybe only get 5 kills. And there was a certain joy in hunting down an entrenched sniper...

Unless I am viewing the whole thing with rose-tinted glasses. It has been some time since I played BF2.

Then again, I trust DICE to make the sniper/recon/whatever class more useful in other ways so they aren't just a 'hide behind a bush and don't get any blood on me' class.
In BF2 sniper rifles didn't kill in one shot at close range. You had to go for the headshot. It's not a nerf, nothing changed. Just like tanks.

on a side note, driving through buildings is fun in BC2!
BF3 isn't completely destructible like BC2.

540MB for patch 1.41 then 1950MB for patch 1.5

You need both.

See, I wasn't aware that this occurred in BC2, I thought it was the same as BF2. I expect I have just been lucky in avoiding it.

In BC2 it only happens with a bolt action sniper rifle with magnum ammo (assuming the other doesn't have body armor bonus) at close range, about 20 meters.
