Anyone else find the campaign difficult? I'm playing on normal and seem to die pretty frequently. And this is coming from a gamer who has beaten both Modern Warfares and Black Ops on normal with relative ease. I'm about an hour and a half in.

I'm seriously considering bringing it down to easy mode but the gamer in me doesn't want to.

The prone is completely annoying. Almost everyone just hides in the position and just gets cheap kills. The shotgun range is also insane. Tired of getting one-hit killed by guys 25 feet away. Also, at first, I was getting lucky and avoiding most of the servers issues you guys have encountered. Well, that ended today.

So correct me if I'm wrong, but once a kit unlocks a weapon, both attackers and defenders can use it.

Basically, the only "exclusive" weapons are the ones the sides start with?

I know what it means, I've lived here all my life. We have a seminole casino too, nice knowing someone else knows.


I figured you knew the meaning since you had it listed as your location. I went to college with someone from there and he always went out of his way to tell us what it meant.

Please don't take offense to my full sentence comment. I completely agree with your comments. I just had to read it 3 or 4 times to get the meaning.

Yeah. There are no exclusive weapons though, you eventually unlock the starting weapons for the other side to use.

People abuse the ability to go prone so much. That's probably my biggest complaint thus far. That, shotgun range, and not being able to quit out of a match during intermission.

Played a lot tonight. Play time up to about 3 hours, and I'm top 1000 in the world!
Anyway, I really like the added option of declining a revive, because one of my pet peeves of the last one was when someone would revive you just for the points, and then you would die again because there was a firefight going on. Really liking this better than BC2, especially conquest. I love conquest so much I haven't even played the other modes!
Also, how come sometimes I can't issue squad commands?

I definitely love the ability to decline a revive. Hell, even if the guy isn't just being a douche and farming points, there are plenty of times where you KNOW that a group of enemies is still in the area. The other guy might not see them and revive you by accident.

The quit thing is dumb as it seems to count them for any time you quit a match as I have about 10% quits on my stats page already. I had the game freeze once but all the rest have been just exiting at the beginning of the next round or getting disconnected by the server.

Hopping into a server at the end of a round and getting a lose without having actually played kind of sucks as well.

Proning and rocket launcher spammers is definitely an annoyance thus far.

I put in a lot of hours with BC2 but I can't for the life of me see where to compare weapon damage in this game! I loved that you could quickly compare that in BC2 while selecting a kit. Where am I missing this? Surely it has to be there somewhere. I can't even find where to view individual weapon stats such as kills and shots fired in the stats section.

The only place I've even seen this basic information is on Battlelog. Surely you aren't expected to have to log in there to see this? They still don't even have general weapon stats like damage there. This couldn't possibly be missing, could it? I guess I see rate of fire and ammo under "show description" but why not just make it a chart? Why the arbitrary 800 or 900 or 750 for rate of fire? And still no damage rating?

How come some of my stats still show up as zero on the leaderboard? Do you have to have a specific time played for all of them? I noticed that my score per minute didn't show up until I played 2+ hours.
Is the unlock system really clunky for anyone else? I'm not a fan of the customization screens and whatnot. I mean, it's cool all the unlocks that are there, but changing everything isn't very convenient, and sometimes I'll unlock something and it won't appear. Very annoying.

How can people be abusing prone? I dont get it. I never even got why they took it away in the first place. If they can shoot you then you can shoot them whats the problem?

I don't get it either. Just be aware of your surroundings. I played mainly the CoD games so maybe I'm just used to seeing players being prone. I didn't really play Battlefield BC:2.

I do. I died lots of time on the 2nd or 3rd mission by the garage. Including a enemy that warped through a wall! :hot::roll:

People abuse it because you can somehow go prone all the up into a corner to the point where only your upper body is visible. You can also somehow turn 360 degrees when laying prone as if you were standing.

anyone else think that BC2s graphics are more appealing? Im not saying that BF3s visuals are lesser. It just has an unbalanced draw distance (i think thats what its called for popups/popins). also the rough edges are so visible. when youre standing still, everyting looks nice. but when you start moving all of the visual flaws start showing up.

the only reason that I think BC2s graphics are nicer is because its smooth. idk.. take a BF3 xbox MP video and compare to a BC2 xbox MP video. less blurry objects.

have you guys reached night shift? remember in the beginning when you are overlooking the city from a rooftop. they look really blurry.

but you know what, i think the difference between BC2 and BF3 are the environments. the levels in BC2 are either mostly white (like snowy levels), mostly green (forests) or mostly tan (desert missions). and unlike BF3, there are much more colors going on in every level.

i just feel that if they perhaps tone down the contrast and tweak the edges a little this game would be better.

Really impressed by how good this game is.

Definitely has the "just one more game" vibe to it.

The campaign is pretty terrible though.

I'm playing it on easy just to get the achievements.

So instead you would rather them die trying to revive you then to spawn kill the guys around him... who cares if you die, he will revive you again to kill even more. :roll:

The quit thing is dumb as it seems to count them for any time you quit a match as I have about 10% quits on my stats page already. I had the game freeze once but all the rest have been just exiting at the beginning of the next round or getting disconnected by the server.

Who cares about little shit like that...

I fully agree. Though, I wish proning was never implemented as I knew camping would go up and then people would start bitching like they do in CoD about it, even though they have the same advantage.

Gah, I had my first issue with the game today. It crashed while I was doing pretty well in a round of Conquest. I need to work on the single player campaign some more tonight.

I wish there was a way to practice flying without being a dick and screwing up your team. I'd love to become a helicopter god in this.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Exactly. You can often shoot people when their bodies are sticking out through walls, but a lot of times, that isn't an option, like if someone is prone in a building and guarding a stairwell. They can stuff themselves way into the corner, and it's almost impossible to get to them. It's dumb. If people don't think that's an issue, sorry, but you're wrong.

I just realized reviving someone also means that their death doesn't count, nor is the ticket subtracted, unlike BC2. Very nice.

I noticed something else that is beyond screwed up, but that probably isn't a big deal to most people. The spawning in TDM sucks. You spawn way too much near enemies or have someone spawn right on you for an easy kill. Luckily, the big appeal of BF is Rush and Conquest, but still, you'd think a developer like DICE could handle something like spawning in a TDM.
