That was just mental around D.

Definitely. I think I counted four Spruts alone, not including the Z-11's darting about or those on foot. Think I killed one person, whilst all that was ongoing. hehe

I did chuckle to myself (which was a LOT!) every time one of you was ranting and cussing another one for killing you both in some mad arse quad crash rofl

That's spiritual! I spawned on him 4 times in a row in a quad to die when he drove into a skip/stone/building/tree.

The only upside is I got a comeback bonus when I eventually arrived at our destination and got a kill

I should really stick to being a passenger......

But those Quads are sooo much fun! hehe Going full speed down the mountain side on Alborz...or jumping the dunes on Bandar. I must admit....i spent quite a few minutes on that round just ragging about on the quads beeping my horn at everyone.

For the first time last night I remembered to change the camera view while quadding the dunes on Bandar. As a former club level motocrosser, some of the footage is brilliant!

What's the other camera view? I didn't know there was any other apart from the guys eyes as it were

What's the key to change it? Can you change it on all vehicles?

The key is "c" and it goes into a chase view. It's not available in hardcore

yes

Can do it on all the vehicles- very useful when flying jets, plus also useful when using the tanks without a gunner as it lets you see any sneaky Foobes type characters sneaking up with C4...

Can't remember the default key off the top of my head though- I have my keys customised to such an extent that almost none of mine are default. (I have to have the same controls for EVERY shooter I play, hence my BF3 setup is now a mix of Quake 2 & BF1942 defaults...)

Poor Wire got the worst one, on Alborz - I saw the "squad spawned on you" popup, and went straight into a tree stump at warp factor 5. hehe

It's handy for keeping an eye on other jets that suddenly decide to dive underneath you during dogfights, only downside is I find the controls much less responsive in third person, for some reason - I can't fly like that permanently.

I've found this too. I switch to outside view for quick snapshots of what's around me, but turning/combat I find best left to the 1st person view.

Disclaimer: I say that as somebody who has around 30mins of jet-time to their name, with a single plane shot down...

It's very similar to how I flew in BF1942/Desert Combat though - I was actually something of a plane/helo-we back then! hehe

I miss bf2142 gunships so much. I was really looking forward to jet whirring like I used I but I just can't get the hang of the jets.
