I'm assuming most people that play assault will go for Grenader instead of Combat Medic. I like that medical and resupply units. Healing and resupplying from inside a vehicle sounds very beneficial.

I just unlocked combat medic and equipped it. Fast defibs are a must. Btw I dunno if it was the server settings or my squad was that good for me to realize field upgrades carry over into the next round!

Ok that guy in the boat video sucks.... I got burst fire cannon and it demolishes infantry because you can spray it as fast as you can pull the trigger. dunno what he is talking about because this is insanely OP. I went on a 15 kill streak 1 attack boat, 2 old school boats, a little bird, and a bunch of infantry laid to waste. The Zuni Rockets are where its at too... the burst cannon wrecks any chopper better than an AA gun, but the Zuni Rockets clean up any infantry that was able to duck for cover from your barrage. I just got active protection counter measures... so I have all attack boat unlocks within the first week of having the game. :P

LOL, its Air Superiority... I been messing with the stinger and its still OP as hell... I was wondering how I was getting taken down so fast... Its all I use now on conquest maps that I don't like to snipe on. You can reload it so fast, 3 rockets is all it takes... 1 for flares, 2 for a hit, and 3 for vehicle destroy. Attack choppers are pretty useless sadly.... the littlebird is way better once you get heat seekers and the 25mm cannon... its a faster version of the attack chopper without a gunner.

It sucks that attack helicopters can so easily be taken down by stingers. It'll force good chopper pilots to fly low, but with good RPGers and tanks on the ground, they can still be taken out quick. Do you know if its possible to have Stealth, Fire Extinguisher and ECM Jammers equipped all at once?

Damn. That sucks ass. :crap: They need to nerf stingers.. In all of BF3, I've only seen maybe 2 people be absolutely amazing with attack helicopters. Both people were amazing at flying low, in between buildings.. they had the maps so memorized they knew where people were locking onto them from, based upon what building, structure, tree or hill they ducked behind would block the lock.. then after some quick maneuvering around said objects, would rain down rockets on that engineer completely dominating infantry.

I just unlocked anti-tank for engineer too... but I've only had 3-4 squads where I've been able to max out field upgrades... I'm thinking its because most of them are waiting for vehicles to spawn at the deploy screen. -_-; I've sat and laid low for minutes sometimes hoping someone would f'n spawn and then I get shot up and field upgrade gets lost... I've sat at the deploy screen waiting for an attack boat, but If the field upgrade meter isn't empty, I keep an eye on who is alive.. if Its only one guy, or two guys that are close to each other, I'll just spawn at a different flag that might be under attack...

 

I dont think Anti-tank is going to be a big game breaker, because random people have shown time and time again, they dont know how to work as a team.

I'll probably be on all day starting around 1pm your time. :P

 

EDIT: Part of the patch came out today. I think it was only to stop this 1 bullet kill glitch. I dont know if I ever experienced it to my benefit, but it makes sense how I was sometimes blasting away at someone and they dropped me when they had 1 health left.

No, its still beasting for me. :P Its the only assault rifle with 40 damage oppose to 30 that every other AR, Carbines, and most PDWs have. Mixed with its slightly slower rate of fire it just works well. Its the stability more than anything that makes it deadly. The suppressor doesn't do much to hamper it. Suppressor drop LMG accuracy by half... so its pretty useless by comparison.

I need to get the SCAR-H unlocked, the first couple weapons for these kits are not that great. I had to change my helicopter buttons back to lefty veteran. I couldn't get the hang of the stick only controls. Looks like I'll have to hit level 10 and then 20 to unlock most of the initial assignments. My brother had to tell me about the level requirements for assignments.. I thought something was busted because I wasn't getting any assignments done.

 

This game looks amazing on the PS4. Its a shame they don't have squad in menus, server queues or load outs in the menu.. Those 3 basic features from BF3 were amazingly useful compared to trying to get into a match with a friend now. If I had 10+ friends in different matches, I didn't see any way of seeing what friends were in what matches for me to join.

It's at the main multiplayer screen. But I guess they really want you to use battlelog. Seeing as I play with my computer at my back, I can change class load outs on the fly while in game. You couldn't do that on bf3. It would say that you were in game blah blah. Bad Company 2 also made you change load out options in game. BF3 was the only console version that let you do so from the main menu. I don't know why they took that away.

I used the testing range to get a grip on how sniping works on BF4.. The range finder is amazing. All sniper rifles let you adjust the range of the scope by hitting the down d-pad while scoped in. This is a huge improvement over BF3. If someone is about 200 meters or so away, hit the d-pad down to 200, then aim right at the guy's head. By adjusting the range of the scope, it will automatically shoot the bullet high to compensate for bullet drop. This is huge for me. If I can figure out how to post a video I uploaded to FB on here I'll show you what I mean. Anyway, the range finder works like the airburst range finder. Basically point your sights at an enemy, the range finder tells you how far away that target is. If the target is 420 meters away, set the scope range to 400, then aim just a hair above their head to compensate for the extra 20.. boom, headshot. Without the range finder attached to the scope, you'll have to guess the range from experience.

Ah I see then... I dunno if Ill trade out variable zoom for this. BF3 console didnt do a good job of showing bullet drop until you got the very last sniper rifle... The drop is clear as day on PS4... I'll give it a shot, but I like dropping the bullet into a head like its a basket ball going into the hoop... nothing but net. XD

OK, Now I see what is going on. What you are talking about is the range setting... and the range finder... two completely different things. I didn't know about the range settings until a few days ago. I was confused on how you had the range finder at rank 10, but I didn't read the part about test range. :P

That was a good video. He explained it better than me. :P What he didn't mention is that when you are going for longer distance shots, you'll notice the trajectory of the bullet is almost unrealistic from the angle you are shooting. I set it for 1000 meters and when you shoot it, unscope and you'll see the bullet is following a path as if you lobbed a basketball in the air even though the gun was pointed parallel to the ground. XD

 

I really like this system. Accounting for bullet drop with range settings will make this much easier now. Until last night, I was doing it old school shooting an inch over a guys head. XD

 

Also, on that video I put on facebook.. the one where I shot the driver in the jeep.. at the beginning of that video I was sniping. Instead of using a range finder, I used the flag as my range finder. The flags always show how far away they are. I was 200 meters away, so I set the range at 200 and shot directly at every enemy trying to cap the flag. I was getting consistent hit markers. Its much easier to snipe now.

 

EDIT (fixed)

      Although its also on the PS4, I purchased Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for the Switch recently because it's just been collecting dust. It was probably the better option anyways because the graphics look like something out of the N64/PS2 era with modern draw rates. Not a knock against it, as its quite charming... but the game looks like it belongs on the Switch rather than PS4. Everything about this game is so 1998. I've never played any of the Ys games before, but this one caught my eye for the old school hack and slash. It's very Dark Cloud-ish minus the world building. Sprinkle some old Zelda in there as well. The combat is relatively simple with 1 button main attack, and 4 special attacks that consist of holding R1 and pressing A B Y X. These use a SP meter that replenishes on kills. There are also dodge and block counters that give you a special speed combo ability. You have a party of 3, and characters that join where you can swap them out and swap between the three in combat. Each character has a assigned damage type (Slash, Precise, Bash). Having all 3 types helps weaken the right enemies susceptible to these plus you get a rare drop bonus... rather than the 1.1x bonus for having two of the same. Anyways, the story is campy but interesting, the dialogue is 90's cringeworthy, and its a lazy sprinkle of actual voice acting and text reading. The world is  large but a bunch of sectioned off instances that quickly load without a loading screen as you cross them. There are fast travel points but not in every sector, so it requires some old school memorizing where to go at times. As you get special gear, you'll find places that were inaccessible previously open up. I'm 20 hours in and I don't feel like I'm even half way through. So at $60, I feel like I'm getting my money's worth for a decent nostalgia kick. I bet this will be a free PS Plus game next year so when it comes up I highly recommend it without even finish it. I'll report back when I beat it with a proper review.

      Its been quite the stressful couple weeks. Lady had her surgery and is having a very slow recovery process. My bank required specific repairs to the garage to approve the mortgage and instead of paying a massive price to a contractor me and my friend spent 2 days this last weekend busting our asses in 90 degree days with 90% humidity and full sun working on the garage. Thats all done and accepted now.. Yay. Getting into the final stretch here with the house. Hopefully I'll be moving by the end of the month. I might actually have free time this weekend... finally. *knocks on wood*

      The first two eps of AoT season 3 are better than season 2 in its entirety.

      Originally I wasn't going to say anything until I actually finished watching the series (which should be Monday or Tuesday night) but you were right DX, The Ancient Magus' bride is spectacular and I say this after only watching 15 episodes.
      I have to say it's up there with Violet Evergarden for both visuals and story (and it's been awhile since I've seen a show that has completely drawn me in to the point that I sacrifice sleep just to watch another episode). I honestly didn't think the premise would suck me in this much but I'm glad it did (and both episodes with Nevin were extremely well done (I shed some manly tears they were so emotionally impacting)).
      I honestly have to say this is probably going down as one of my favorites shows from the last few years (which isn't really hard considering my problems with the last few seasons), only taking second to the masterpiece that was Violet Evergarden. I can't recommend this show enough for those who want a story driven show focused on character development and world building (I'm just sad I only have 8 episodes and 3 OVA's left, really hope this gets another season once the manga gets further along).

      This simuldub season is pretty meh compared to last. If it wasn't for the fact that MHA and out of all things; Black Clover was still running. I'd be hard pressed to keep up. Ep 1 of Overlord season 3 felt like a waste of time, but the second one made things pretty interesting. Angels of Death seems kind of bland so far. How not to Summon a Demon Lord is a typical fanservice trapped in a video game world show. Same goes for The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar. Lord of Vermilion feels like a better Tokyo Majin.. which isn't saying much. Hopefully it will be something better. Harukana Receive is bouncy bikini beach volley ball, but Haruka is a total best girl, so I'll shamelessly enjoy it. On the opposite end, I'll skip Free! because I'm not watching a bunch of dudes swim, and I'm already watching HR and Hanebado... an anime about freakin Badminton. With Dies Irae and AoT not staring until later in the month that leaves three unlikely contenders for a surprise best in season for me, that isn't Overlord or AoT which I already expect to be solid at worst.
      Magical Girl Raising Project is apparently a dark ass violent series with cute moe magic girls. A total clash of genres. The first two eps only have brief hints at it so far, its mostly just cutesy. But if it turns out like I think it has the potential too. It should be pretty interesting.
      Chio's School Road is a "school" anime thats about Chio's walk to school every day, instead of the actual school day. The absolute absurd happens apparently every time. The first three eps have been pretty hysterical so far. Its different, so I like it.
      Island is a pretty big mystery to me as to what its suppose to be about. It has my interest to see how it unfolds. It can honestly go either way. I guess I'll be reviewing these at the end of the season and we'll see how my opinions have changed since this status update.
