I see, I'll have to try quick scoping from now on. I was hip firing my shotgun most of the time. Maybe quickscoping will give me those one shot kills.

 

btw, try using a laser sight on bf3 with any gun. It drastically improves hip firing. SKS with laser sight and hip firing at medium to long range can be devastating to an opponent. Check out some aggressive recon bf3 videos on youtube. Even bolt action sniper rifles with a laser sight can be brutal in bf3.

Interesting. I never really bothered with laser sights in BF3 becasue I always felt it gave my position away. I always run stealth class in any FPS I can. I run suppressors on all my guns on BF3.

Exactly. I would never use laser sights because it gives away position. So I wanted to see what the hell benefit a laser sight has. And its all about hip firing. If you are mostly lined up with a guy and have a laser sight on, you can get hit markers like in COD. If you ADS almost all laser sight benefit is negated unless you are running with iron sights, and even then its minimal. Its mostly noticeable when you are playing close quarters, TDM or a close combat map like metro rush. Try it out. You'll be surprised how deadly your hip firing is. Just make sure they are mostly in your crosshairs and you'll get some kills.

 

Once you get good at it, you'll get used to turning your laser sight off as you crouch and reload under cover, then turn laser sight back on and rush around a corner and slaughter ppl. XD

I just played Hardcore TDM... the only reason I don't like it is I cant wildly lob grenades since you can kill your own teammates... but the damage increase to all guns is wicked. One shot for the SWAT-556... I went 33-11 and somehow my team still lost because someone went 0-21... 0-21!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

COD only allows 20 clips... I got most my kills in it. Im using the PDW-57

Now that I have Ghost permanently unlocked and supressors on many of my firearms. This game has become a lot more enjoyable. :P

Holy crap that is some quick kills. :tup:

 

btw, I'm really liking the M27. I told my brother I was using the Type 25 and he thought I was nuts. The M27 is a huge improvement for me.

Here are some screen shots I took from elite.

My vaunted FAL class... I use always on Slums, Carrier, Meltdown, Overflow, Raid, Sometimes on Hijacked Yemen, and Cargo

 

post-4-0-22057300-1358140990_thumb.jpg

If I have a bad connection, then I swap it up with the PDW

post-4-0-12252800-1358140991_thumb.jpg
Oh yeah... I use it on Turbine, Drone, Standoff, Plaza, Express, Aftermath, and copy sometimes from FAL.

Nice classes. I think my first perm unlock will be ghost. I just need to get there. I usually play on saturday mornings. I'll spend a couple hours on black ops 2 and then switch to bf3.

I just started using the M27, and after throwing the fore grip and fast mag on it, I'm pretty pleased. It definitely turns into a killing machine... Once I get FMJ's I'll probably ditch the fast mag, but I'll end up using primary gunfighter when I get extended mag so I can use all 3. I'm shying away from any optics... for some reason I tend to ball out with iron sights in Treyarch CODs. I hate being EMP grenaded and the dot goes down on my sight.

 

FYI, like I texted you yesterday the heat maps are in Elite, but I think the webpage elite is the best. I havent really checked the console app, but the webpage lets you view a animated layout of the map as you're kills progress during the match. Just go to a recent match and hit "View Heat Map"

 

Here are some of mine:

I'll check out the elite site and see some of my heat maps so I can get a better feeling for the maps.

 

Raid... I think everyone's heat map would look like that. There is always so much action in the middle of that map.

I need to upload some videos. Now that I have the suppressor on the M27, I was dominating with it yesterday. I unlocked the SCAR-H and tried it out for a couple rounds. I'm liking that gun too. ;)

 

Double XP has started for this weekend! January, 25-28. :D

I've seen that multiple assault shield thing once. Other than that I don't see many major differences that will affect game play. Looks like the FAL is getting a little nerfed with selective fire. The SCAR and MTAR getting more damage is nice. The Type 25 should've gotten increased damage.

The FAL is terrible with selective fire now. its one thing to nerf it, but to ruin it to where no one will use it is stupid. The SMR will be next, becasue its just like the fal was with selective fire it just has a smaller mag. I'm using that now.

That sucks. btw, do you get any errors when you render a video to youtube? I finally got around to editing a video but every time I try to render it to youtube I get an error over halfway thru and nothing gets uploaded. :\

Ive read something about it has to be in 1080i on your video settings for the console from some people. It has to be through an HDMI cable that's for certain. Its only happened to me once. Might want to google it, but once again thats the difference between XBL and PSonline when thinking about next gen ;)

I went 18-0 on meltdown with the SMR, but what do you know? Elite screws up and records me as 2-0, and the score board says everyone else is 1-1. Once I double prestige my SMR and finalize it with Primary Gun Fighter Suppressor/Select Fire/FMJ I don't think ill be looking back. I got a triple kill final kill cam as well on Overflow with it. Even with the foregrip the FAL jumps around too much now, but with the SMR's damage increase it makes it better than the FAL was anyways.

Sounds good.

 

hmmm.. I'll change my video settings back to 1080 and try it again. I have a game called Worms Revolution that plays like absolute shit on the PS3, apparently if I have my video set to 720 it runs better. But after getting so frustrated with it, I bought the game on sale on steam to play on my laptop instead. I forgot to change my video setting back. Maybe thats whats screwing up my upload because its been hooked up with an hdmi. Maybe if COD ran its own fully dedicated servers, we wouldn't get upload errors or lag issues. -_-

I would rather pay an extra $10 for the game just so they would have dedicated servers. The map rotations suck whenever I play Kill Confirmed. I'm always stuck playing Slums, Plaza, Cargo and Standoff. I swear everyone quits out when its not one of these maps, them I'm stuck in the game lobby waiting for ppl to join until I get annoyed with waiting, quit back to the menu, go to join another game and instantly get placed right back in one of these 4 maps. -_-

Just wait until after the Revolution DLC gets taken off its own playlist. This is the COD community at its finest. They pay for these maps and then vote them down constantly when they hit the rotation. It pisses me off because you shouldn't F*CKING buy the maps if you don't what to play them. As much as I love Drone, it gets voted down a lot unless it goes up against Aftermath... and what do you know? the 1st lobby I get into today Drone beats out Hydro 5-1. I think it has mostly to do with these stupid so called "hard core" players worried about their K/D taking a hit because they don't know the new map.

Luckily Treyarch started the trend of putting the new maps in a temporary DLC play list back on Black Ops 1, so you can play what you just paid for without any douchebags voting them down to pay hijacked for the 3000th time.

As to the new gun, everyone is using it, and to be honest its not all that great. It's probably the weakest SMG of the line up because of its slow rate of fire... It fires slower than the SCAR. They tried to make a hybrid and failed. It has the range of an assault rifle, it reloads/ADS fast, and you can move as fast as holding an SMG, but the power is so lacking it's def not something I'm going to spend my time on. They'd be better off making a Hybrid of an Assault Rifle and LMG, sorta like the AUG-HBAR in MW2. Now that was a good weapon. It acted like an LMG, it had a magazine size between an LMG and AR, but reloaded like an AR.

The map rotation and not having a permanent mute all players option are the two most annoying things I have seen in this game. I don't even mind the lag issues and crazy hit markers so much. But the map rotations are pure shit. And because I have to back out of the game lobby I'm in and join back into it just to get into a game faster it always puts me back into a existing game on a map I just played with 5 kids talking on their headsets about some random thing that has nothing to do with the game. x_x
