Anyone have any pro-tips playing a sniper on Conquest? Since we stopped playing Rush and TDM it just never seems like a good time to play as one unless they're spawn trapped.

1) Anyone know if when someone gets hit by a tank some other large explosion if the person shot just sees the typical fall over and die or if they see themselves flying through the air?

2) Is there a quicker way to exit a game when you are at the battle review menu or do you just have to wait for it to load the next match then exit?

3) is there a way to mute mic of all or specific people?

4) anyone else love driving over or under and or flipping tanks?

5) there is no way to save replays like the pc version or black ops on the ps3 is there?

Sorry but having a Recon flying a MAV around is actually pretty helpful and I'm close enough to my first service star with Recon that I have to do it. Also I just got the M98B and it sends shivers down my spine when I shoot it. It's time for other players to step it up when I don't feel like it.

1. I believe whenever I die at the top of some steps I always seem to reappear at the bottom.

2. Only way other than quitting through XMB or maybe joining another person on your friend's list.

3. Wish I knew myself.

4. *shrugs*

5. Nope. You'll need to buy a setup to record.

I would be pissed to hear anything about DLC before they even patch the game (which is incoming).

Apparently i have the 10th most pkp kills on ps3 and i have only used that gun for just over a month. I only have like 30 handgun kills this month because of it. Very satisfying blowing up mavs and tanks with c4 and killing people in helis with the pkp.

Just scored 33851 on a game of squad team death match. Granted there may have been some medals involved and maybe an assignment but still 33851! Went 27 and 1 as well... Beat that!

If you're talking about total awarded I've had one or two games where I got 4-5 medals =O If you're not talking about medals then I don't know who could beat that.

Sucks that more people can't enjoy the change of pace. I just had a game going 1-0 today getting MVP#1 but was bored out of my mind. Those games are the reason I like the occasional cluster****. Even better that the frag rounds are getting a slight nerf.

You got my hopes up with this thread getting bumped. I read the title and was hoping if I picked up Battlefield 3 today that I would still get 1943 for free. :-(

I just played the demo recently and enjoyed 1943 enough that I would consider buying it.

the "change of pace" isnt battlefield. if you want tight corridor fighting on shitty maps, go play CoD. battlefield is about big maps with vehicles.

I was playing BF1943 nightly for about a week, all while trying to convince a buddy of mine to download it on his PS3 as well. Thus far I've been unsuccessful in convincing him to play the game. So it'd be nice to have some other folks to play the game with as opposed to getting decimated too much by the usual suspects I saw playing it constantly.

Not anymore. Go play ARMA II if you want what you had in the past.

I'm still playing BF1943 and I'm getting better, though some of these folks with the freakin' fighter planes screaming overhead are a lil ridiculous. That's why I've taken to being a sneaky sneaky sniper, trying to find the smallest lil cubbyhole I can find and just peeking out long enough to pop a few people here or there.

I also managed to get my one buddy to finally download and try the game. He's been playing nightly with me as part of a squad. Neither of us can fly a plane worth a shit though.:lol:

Battlefield 3's next patch for PS3 is coming next week on March 27. PS3 players will have the option to turn off anti-aliasing to reduce input lag.

Forgot how badly I could destroy people with the USAS so I'm glad I got to use it one last time yesterday when I ran out of bullets. Excited for the changes in the game though.

I have 33000 kills and only 13 usas kills. All the explosions can make the game lag, so i can't believe they would put fa g rounds in the game. I hope to God they fixed the sound cutting out all the time. They should give us free maps just for having to put up with that bullshit. LOL at this $$$ on the bf3 forums with 13000 MAV kills. I have never encountered such a coward in all my life.

God I had one of those games last night (checked and it was actually 60 mins). As much as I love Metro staying in so long was pissing me off. Went 93-60 and lost about 100 skill pts. I made the mistake of trying to level the PP2000 and without extended mags it's kind of bullshit when I run-and-gun.

last night was worse oi!

http://battlelog.bat...50/4/199005257/

2 hours and 12 mins. i played for like 90 mins before i the games locked. Took like 10 mins to get back in so i didn't have much of a scroe and i dont know the true stats but we were down by somewhere of the neighborhood of 700 tickets and we actually came back to take it. It was gulf of oman and javiliners were hiding in the tower which made it a real pain but we pulled it off.

Nice. It is sort of refreshing to know it's easier to join a game and make a comeback with the extra ticket servers. I think 200%-300% might be the max I want to stay on a map though. I sure as hell wouldn't want to join a game again and lose all progress unless I did terribly.

If you think that's bad, you should play against me on BF1943. I find a nice lil sniper nest n just pick people off from across the map.;):booty:

I got the over all points but since it froze i have no real idea on what I really got for that match or how it affected my overall stats. I jumped in with one of my platoons and decided to stick out. Oi brutal.

If anyone still plays add me on PSN. I'd like to start playing again but with such a team-oriented game you cannot play on your own. Would be really cool if we can get a solid group together.

I sold this game because of the constant tinkering and shitty maps. Bought bad company 2 for 5 bucks and called up customer service and got all the vip maps free. If i wanna play battlefield though i prefer 1943 right now. Automatic weapons in bad company 2 are just to easy to use but it has cool maps. I prefer 1943 just for the fact that new weapons aren't as fun to use. DICE literally made 1000 changes to BF3 and kind of followed the path of uncharted 2 with constant tinkering of gameplay. Bad company 2 isn't very good.
