I've had a break from BF3 for a few months (well, gaming full stop) - so what's the verdict on the new expansion packs? Are any worth getting?
I think Armoured Kill is very disappointing.

Close Quarters is better especially if you like lots of action/kills etc
Other way around for me. Play Black Ops for the action stuff, BF for tanks, choppers and epicness. I love Armored Kill.
Im the same. Not played much close quarters, armoured kill is good but a few mates of mine have bailed out and the Xbox ph server doesn't have the new maps

Armoured kill can be very good or very bad, depending on who is on your team - even more so than regular bf3.

If you are doing coordinated tank runs, teaming up in the attack heli, flying 6 men across the map in a chopper it can be fun, but when you have no team players and you keep spawning a mile from the action with no vehicles at your base, it can feel very slow and clunky indeed.

Selfish players are exposed even more, as they jump in the tanks and drive off, leaving you stranded at the spawn. Thing us, I'm usually playing engineer with a repair torch, so it would have been in their interest to carry me anyway. Oh well.

The only tactic I feel should be looked down upon is jet ramming (jet pilots flying their jets into helicopters) and even with this, most of the time the jet pilot is hoping to take out the heli with its cannon before hitting it and is not deliberately kamikazeeing.
I confess to being guilty of this sometimes. Easily done especially when bits start flying off. Doing it less these days.

Don't know whether it's down to AK or the new assignments or something, but rape from the sky seems more prevalent than usual. Had some very frustrating games combining a rubbish team with a seriously air savvy opposition. Had a game on Karg earlier where the WHOLE enemy team was either flying or sniping. We took all the objectives and it was 6-7 mins before any of the objectives was attacked. Mental.


Whilst my general flying about (chopper and jet) skills are getting better, against a decent pilot I am still nothing more than target practise. For instance, how the hell do people decimate tanks with jets? I can never seem to be in the right place at the right time.

One the flipside, the longer lock distance for stingers means I've taken out a lot of choppers although jets are still very tough to catch.

Yep, some of the Gunship maps can just be a waste of time, you die the second you spawn. All they need is a good pilot in the jet covering them and if your team on the ground don't use stingers then whilst you stand trying to get a lock, you are blown to bits.

As for taking down a tank, climb up a bit, then start a slow dive, hit the brakes as you do it to have longer to shoot. Then hit the tank with the gun for a second, switch to rockets and fire them off then if the tank is still alive you should have another second to use the gun before you have to pull up - and it's toast.

Thanks for the above...I'll experiment with the jet. No rockets yet though...

I would also like to add...the LSAT is now my least favourite gun. Trying to do the assignment. Just seems to lack both power and accuracy. Especially off the bipod.

I'm also struggling on the new maps with aerial assault. I can fly the stuff but everyone else seems a pro and has all the upgrades. frown shame as I enjoying flying about!

Finally got a new PC so playing this now. Seems the PH Platoon is full though! frown

I usually get an hour or two a night to play but dividing my time between this and Borderlands 2 at the minute.

Soldier name is Cheezymon if anyone fancies adding me.

tbh I'm glad I didn't waste MS Points on the DLC...the spawn-point killing in this game is f***ing ridiculous

Baseraping, or just dying at the flags?

I don't know what you BF3 guys call it (must be a big part of the game, if you have a name for it) but it's a joke
respawn...pop sniper...dead...respawn...pop sniper...dead...respawn...pop sniper...dead...

you get the idea.


Truly ridiculous, I've never experienced anything like it. nono

It seems to me like they have decreased the OOB areas that the enemy team could be safe.

Well, baseraping is generally frowned upon. It's shooting into the default spawn where the enemy isn't supposed to be able to access.

If you're just getting killed spawning onto flags, or squadmates, the onus is entirely on you to make sure you're not jumping into a firefight.

We have our own BF3 PC player thread, post on there and we will add you to the player Wiki.

Anyone else having connection issues, I keep getting dropped out of a game and then can't connect back into any servers. Xbox btw.

It does suck, but it's remedied by teamwork! wink
