Duno why, but I always preferred it over the PKP.

Helicopter briefly dropped to the ground in Damavand, with as far as I could tell 3 opposition in.

Me, prone just under the giant truck in the tunnel entrance + M320 = Much happiness when I planted one straight into the cockpit window.

As for the patch I can't really feel any difference. If anything I'm getting a bit better.

On a related note I had my first post-patch roadkill 'death' the other night.

getting the four transport vehicle kills is proving impossible for me....

i might need to dedicate my time to it over teh weekend...

PS I tried the c4 jeep crash thingy...works well, sort of. would that count as a transport kill or a C4 kill....?

it is funny though

Try amtrack on canals just drive it to the russian base and sit in the turret killing them as they exit works for me most of the time. It also provides a good spawning point for your team as long as some idiot doesn't get in and start driving.

I got my first 'Jihad Jeep but using mines' kill at the weekend (can only seem to get 2x mines on the bonnet), although you have to take one for the team and stay in it. Hit a fully loaded (2 soldiers and 10xC4) Jihad Jeep coming the other way. BOOM! hehe

That's one I haven't tried. In BF2 I always used to play a similar tactic using my full amount of C4 slapped on the jeep.

A new one for me to try smile

The bit that upset me is they mentioned flares are now an immediate unlock for everyone. I made most of my points shooting downs those noobs!

Yup. If someone wants to shell out £30 for a load of guns they'll have no idea how to use, crack on!

I've always enjoyed using the guns that nobody else uses (or that are widely acknowledged to be crap), so I've switched to the Type-88 LMG. There's something quite satisfying about taking a poor or unused gun and tearing everybody up with it hehe

Recently reverted back to the M16A (?). May only be a three-round affair, but get it on target and they're going down, quickly, every time!

I`ve still not much idea even though I`ve been playing for a while now (rank 40) I still use the same ol` gun and set up I started out with. I tried a few others but always reverted back to M27 or RPK74, maybe because I`m just comfortable with them.
Also, can somebody recommend a decent headset approx £50ish for the Xbox?

i've just been on for half an hour and it was almost unplayable i would say.

massive recoil despite grip and suppressor, hit registering still an issue and the general feel all seems a lot slower. 8 v 8 on tdm. i'm still experiencing the same, shoot at someone, they make a drink, turn round shoot me syndrome...must be lag client issues still prevalent.

going to leave this alone for a good while now i reckon. big shame.

I actually think the weopons feel better. I sometimes join bad servers where I shoot people they die yet they remain standing for a second I normally find another server and things sort themselves out.

I got a double road kill with a jet on Caspian, i landed mine on the Russian airfield for a laugh, shot one of their planes and when i tried to take off, i hit some trees, did a 180 deg spin. Didn't blow up though, so trundled back onto the tarmac and saw two guys waiting for a plane/heli.

Powered up and splattered them across my nose cone and then crashed into a lamp post and blew up. hehe

Cleaver? No. Funny? Oh yes!

Oh and are the stingers now uprated as i was in a private match on Firestorm and the stingers seem to give more damage than before, and theirs had better range than ours...
