I spawned into an Attack Helicopter as a gunner to see how good the damage is now since the last patch. I was completely surprised that my teammate turned out to be an ace pilot. This guy has given me some good insight on how to effectively use the attack helicopter. Watch this video to see me get an Attack Helicopter Ribbon as the gunner. Now I need to work on my flying skills in the test area so I can attempt to get my speed and turns as good as this pilot.
While playing Conquest Large on Zavod 311 I saw a couple opportunities to use my UCAV Airburst strategically. The enemies kept camping on a roof with snipers and helicopters. My UCAV put a stop to that very quickly. The second one killed 4 players, a helicopter and who knows what else. The points added up so quickly that the game hesitated for a moment, skipped showing what actually happened and gave me over 1000 points.
On Operation Locker, everyone just stands around shooting through major corridors and dropping resupply kits and health packs. Those resupply kits are very useful for EOD Bot attacks. Watch this video as I send a constant stream of bots into the enemy territory.
I was trying to destroy a mortar and was surprised to see the player come back to pick it up. Its apparently easier to get a head shot against infantry than it is to destroy a mortar from some distance.
It took me over 8 minutes to get this bomber delivery ribbon. I wasn't playing this round as a good squad mate either. I went directly for the bomber, switching to whichever squad was closest to the bomber door at every opportunity.
This is actually the very first bomber delivery ribbon I got, but I couldn't get the video to upload correctly from my PS4 until now. Its pretty obvious I didn't know what I was doing with the bomber in this video and I lucked out with an assist counts as kill in the end. Check my other bomber videos to see better kills. The main thing with the bomber is to target stationary vehicles and infantry.
After ramming this thing into at least 20 people and never getting a kill with it, I finally got a couple kills with it tonight. The SUAV after the patch is nothing like in the other videos I've seen prior to it being patched. The only way I was able to get a kill with it was to go directly for the head shot of a prone enemy. After doing it twice in the same round, I will only attack prone enemies with the SUAV now.
I've made quite a few UCAV videos over the past month. Mostly because unlocking that gadget and it's air burst assignments was a complete pain in the ass. Out of the probably 100 times I've shot that thing, I've only gotten 35 kills with it, many of those kills were multi kills which means maybe 20 shots out of 100 actually hit.. so when I got a kill with it, I saved that video as proof to myself.
My future videos will now focus more on sniping, designated marksman rifles, EOD Bot kills, vehicles and other gadgets.
I finally got the airburst upgrade unlocked for my UCAV and this is the results. Its a bit overpowered considering that I can get a kill with it every time I use it now. As you can see, that 90 second resupply definitely prevented me from dominating. I often jump around after getting kills with the UCAV because I want people to see where I am. I want them to counter me so I'll know how to counter it myself.
Shortly after this video I was marked as a High Value Target and I was quickly killed. I have also had the UCAV (either the missile or the launcher) get destroyed by a MAV which caused it to explode in mid air, then I was sniped.
The Bomber Cruise Missile makes a good explosion but kills nothing unless its a direct hit. It is much weaker than the JDAM bombs. Sure you can direct its movement like a TOW missile, but its not that effective.
The two best anime this season so far are Goblin Slayer and SSSS.Gridman. Goblin Slayer caused a huge uproar over its first ep.. which honestly is stupid. Plenty of acclaimed anime have had an uncomfortable rape scene. A heavily censored scene that took up all of 10 seconds of the episode. However, whether intended or not, it got everyone talking about it. After that, it resumed as a normal but violent anime. It also wasn't random, it established the goblin's as pure evil. SSSS.Gridman is your standard over the top Trigger mecha anime... but it starts out off the rails. I don't see how they can get much more bat shit crazy. That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime, Zombie Land SAGA, and Double Decker: Doug and Kirill have all been fun and quirky though. Overall I'm enjoying this season even if I'm skipping on a few of the shows.
This super white default theme is bugging my eyes. x_x I was busy all week/weekend again doing insulation work on the house. Couple that with a power and internet outage last week and all my free time keeps getting sucked away. I have a new fridge and dishwasher getting delivered this weekend so I'll be a bit busy with that. Especially since I don't know if the electric is actually hooked up correctly for the dishwasher outlet. I keep trying to play a bit of God of War at night and I end up pausing it and walking away to get more crap done. ugh.. I need more free time. I'm tapped out almost all of my vacation too. I have a few days left scheduled for the end of the year. Maybe I'll be able to play that new episode of GW2 by then.
Black friday sales started early so I bought a 4k HDR 50 inch samsung tv. I'm pleased with it. The blacks this tv gets still blows my mind. I doubt I'll buy a PS4pro, but in the mean time my regular PS4 has HDR.. but I only have one game that actually takes advantage of it and thats Uncharted 4. I don't think I'll be replaying it any time soon just to see the graphical difference, but regardless this tv upscales like a champ. Everything looks significantly better. Thats a hell of a lot better upscaling than blu ray players do for dvds. Its a night and day difference.
I put on Rise of the Tomb Raider last night and Battlefield 1 and the quality is top notch. Game mode works with HDR for this tv, so I can put on game mode for reduced input lag which is nice without affecting quality. It also has bitstream audio pass through which works great with my old receiver for surround sound.
The tv has Motion rate 120 instead of true 120 hz refresh rate which I didn't know was a different thing when I was buying the tv. But thats ok, I doubt the PS5 when it eventually comes out will even come close to 60 fps at 4k and my current pc graphics card will no way in hell do any better than 60 fps at 4k so I'm pretty much set for future proofing at the moment.. at least for the next 4-5 years probably. And motion rate 120 is a bit nuts. I had to turn the judder down on that. It makes everything so fluid its like everything was filmed like a soap opera. I never realized more fps on a movie would look so different. But the biggest downside is for animated titles. It cause a bit too much of a blur effect as the tv basically fills in the games to increase the fps.. its not good for animated shows.
