I've had dobbin be glitchy as hell too: Many, many hits registered and no death, followed by 1-2 hits on me from an SMG and I'm dead. If I didn't know better (or believe the best in people) I'd swear to god something fishy was going on with him.

Was a good game though, dunno what the people on the RU team were doing though... one guy got in the tank and just parked it outside C and what shelling the st out of the little alleyway leading to it. I bet there wasn't even anyone on the other side!

Kept killing myself with C4 as well... must remember to sprint further away from vehicles, but I get too nervous about them turning round and killing me before I can detonate. Dunno how but I seem to get done with C4 all the time, yet when I try it they see me coming from a mile away!!! Also today I got done by a tank shell on Siene and he was no where near me... he was down on the road by point D i think, I was all the way up the stairs in the alley way leading down and I got killed... no line of sight, nothing and I wasn't even near the stairs. Not sure how that happened, and I got sniped through a brick wall which I guess is the glitchy hit-registering. He shot, I moved well behind a wall, then I died.
He is a PH-er. Some good games last night. Nice to see the server full, last two days its been empty then suddenly have to queue to get in. Happy days.
You nailed me a couple of times too with your bi-podded LMG hiding in the windows across the street!

Definitely PS3 player and he had PH before his name so he must be around and unlikely to have anything dodgy going as its PS3 (pretty locked down). He is a good player who's better at aiming than I am!!!

Yep, played with dobbin plenty of times, no funny business for sure.

Just one of those things. I've found lmgs are bloody useless post patch, think the damage inflicted multipliers have been tweaked so good shots are required for a kill and not wound - I've had multiple hits only to be killed and see I've only inflicted 20 points damage as I've been shooting at feet!

Part of the issue with the kill cam is that it shows the health of your killer at the instant you died. If some of your shots landed immediately after you were killed, they are not taken into account. You can see this on the odd occassion that your killers health bar is shown on the kill cam - sometimes the bar shows only 30% health but the kill cam stats show 75% health.

Flash Suppressor seems to be the must have for those of us who can't shoot straight with LMG.

LMG's are hit an miss it seems regarding kills and it seems how good a connection you have to the server.

However, ive found the UMP to be way to accurate, way to over powered and better at all ranges when compared to LMG's. Only advantage a LMG has is its bigger mag for us sprayer an prayers smile

Well I can't hit jack at the moment.

I'm not the most accurate person at the best of times but unloading nigh on a full clip into someone only for them to kill me with two handgun shots is getting a bit silly furious

The way suppression and recoil work post patch means that if you don't get the first shot in and on target, you're in a losing situation even with a more powerful gun.

The most obvious effect of suppression on your aim is with a sniper rifle - if you're being suppressed it doesn't matter if you've got your crosshairs between their eyeballs - your shot won't hit the target.

My advice would be to try out a few different guns and attachments. G3A3 with heavy barrel on single shot works well for medium distance assault. Forget burst fire on any assault rifle - the recoil will send the third and successive bullets way over the enemy's head.

Always take a shotgun (not USAS unless you want to be called a noob and admin kicked) for CQB and if you're going as engineer, try to stay in a vehicle as I haven't found a carbine yet that cuts the mustard at anything other than close range.

For support, take the M249 with laser sight/extra mag and red dot scope - it's a beast.

I was finding this a fair bit since the patch- losing almost every 1-on-1 engagement I got into. As mentioned the LMGs with bipod are now rather effective. As for engineer I've gone to using the SG553. I couldn't get on with it at all before the patch, and now its probably my favourite carbine- accurate and with mininal recoil.

My favourite gun since the patch however, is most definately the SKS rifle- using this with just it's iron sights (no scopes), and no foregrip. It will ADS almost instantly with no scope fitted, it will fire rounds as fast as you can click the mouse/fire button, and to me appears to have no recoil what-so-ever meaning every successive shot you fire lands pretty much exactly where the first did.

The iron sights are that good that you can still kill no problem out to ranges of a few hundred meters, yet is effective right up to everything except extreme CQB. It's the first weapon I've found that allows me to win 1-on-1 shootouts most of the time. Getting headshots with it is fairly easy, and even with upper body shots will kill with 2-3 hits maximum. Superb weapon. It's like the old SVT-40 or Gewehr 43 from COD5 world at war! hehe

The only downside is you can only have it with the recon kit which when SOFLAM-ing etc tends to keep you too far out of the action. For running around flag-capping etc it is brilliant.

There really is something hugely satisfying about taking down a helicopter or a plane with a tank shell. Last night I was in a tank all on my own on op firestorm. An attack helicopter was bothering our base spawn point - I drove out onto the road, turret facing away from the base towards the flag objectives. I switched into the CITV seat, locked onto the helicopter several times until he got annoyed and realised where the lock on was coming from. He headed my way, peppering the tank with rockets so I switched back to the turret seat and waited for him to fly over the top of the tank before releasing the shell straight into the belly of the chopper. It's moments like that which keep bringing me back to BF3 for more!

Had one of those once in a liftime moments last night, on Gulf of Oman I was happily sniping away from a second floor of the building opposite flag B, killing people at A, D and the odd sniper whilst keeping an eye on B. sonar

Out of nowhere a Venom (transport heli) starts to land on top of the building at B, about 80 yds away at my level. So, as soon as he touched down, I nailed the pilot with a headshot. Then a passenger switched to the pilot's seat and got nailed by another headshot. Then another passenger switched to the pilot's seat and was dispatched just as quickly. Then a recon guy got out of the passenger door and started looking for me, for about a second before he took one between the eyes.

Four headshots in about 10 seconds, three of them on people inside a vehicle! I was grinning like a Cheshire cat, whilst waiting for someone else to spawn into the pilot's seat, but I think they got the message after that initial burst and left it well alone! laugh

Also got my first headshot on an attack helicopter a little later on the same map - he decided to land it for God knows what reason about 180 yds away directly in front of me.

slothsquach_666 We lost that game it was one with two southerners chatting all the way through ended about 11:30 - I had a great pilot for a while and we kept defending flags from above but there is deffoe something to be said for nailing a heli with a tank shell....

Prior to BF3, I've never been a fan of CQB in games. The current CQB maps are awesome in my mind, thus looks even better.

Can see from the trailers that magazine size would appear to be a key consideration...
