The R9 server update will bring a number of notable fixes to the game including the a long sought solution to the autobalance problems that have been plaguing the game since launch.
Aww darn. It's for PC, right? I was hoping it would fix my constant "Disconnected From Game" problem on my PS3. Oh well, hopefully it'll come eventually.
X360 is pretty good right now. Occasionally I get kicked, but a hundred times better than when it launched.
Just wish they'd fix a couple minor problems like the smoke, seriously there's NO POINT IN IT!
We have smoke launchers? =O
Yeah, for the assault rifle. They litrally go away in 2 seconds and as pount as large a the bradley, ineffective at the best of times. USELESS ALL the time.
the smoke grenades are useful when charging or disarming an mcomm so the snipers protecting it cant pick you or your teammates off as well as they normally can, also, its good if you plan to run to another area and you have to cross a big open field smoke for the vehicles prevent mortar lock on as well as tracer lock ons so yea, the smoke grenades are useful a bit...but i still dont use it (maybe only when i try for the all bronze insignia)
??? Smoke grenades are awesome! They're extremely useful when trying to set the charge and I've gotten tons of kills with smokes.
I want to see a nerf to the M60 which is OP like crazy... and if you guys think there is some nube tubing in MW2 you haven't seen noob tubing until you've been blasted by a Gustav in BBC2 from yards yards away.....Autobalance fix would be nice... also add this... 1. STOP HACKERS...ruining the game 2. Protect the main bases
Gustav sucks for anything but killing infantry, helis and jeeps. It's garbo against tanks.
The M60 is fairly overpowered, early today I jumped behind 4 guys with a simple spray I killed all 4 of them. The Gustav isn't as much of a problem.
I can third the M60 as overpowered. I unlocked it a couple of hours ago and have never been better score-wise and kill-wise. Use it with the Light Machine Gun Marksman specialty and 4x Scopes (ACOG) and you can freaking snipe. In all fairness, I wouldn't use it under normal circumstances, but I was once that recon solider looking through his scopes... and then I fell as an M60 sprayed me from across the map. Pay back time.
The M60 must be a PC thing. I see no problem with it on the PS3. I don't use it but I don't get killed by it a lot either so it's not OP like the MAG LMGs or anything. The Gustav is an anti-infantry device, IIRC, so it makes sense that you can kill people with it and it's not fantastic against armor. Again, I don't see a zillion people running around noob tubing with the Gustav on the PS3. I still find snipers to be the most annoying thing in the game. Which is sort of the way it should be. Snipers are a PITA in real military ops.
It's funny, when I first started playing the game I felt like the knife melee was slow, then I realized that I was just used to the hyper speed of MW2 knifing.
I hate the COD-style melee attacks. I wish you had to equip your knife before using it (ala BF 1942-2142).
That was true in Bad-Company 1 and it doesn't feel quite so satisfying as it does now.
on the new RUSH map for the PS3.its to late to get to disarm them when you dont hear the alarms.also its helpful to know who to spawn on by hearing the alarm.thx DICE
the magnum and shotgun thing is being abused. Fix that!
How is the shotgun being abused? I mean, I understand it is kind of ridiculous when you can snipe people with a shotgun, but you don't have a scope at all. You can kill people with one hit just as easily with some of the sniper rifles, and they have up to 12x scopes. and if you want to run around with it like the shotgun, just put a acog or laser scope on it, and you still have a 1up on the people with the slug in the shotgun. I personally thing the shotgun with the slug is awesome.
I love the knife attacks, but if someone is wearing armour, your fked. Sniper is too easy, dam it's easy on PS3, let alone PC. Should be some sway maybe, hold your breath etc. Just a tad.
hope they dont do anything to the gustav. it does what it should do. there is way to many people that hide in buildings in squad deathmatch and the only way to flush them out is with rocket launchers. the only reason most people hate gustav is because it owns snipers hiding. to me the biggest problem this game has that everyone and their mama snipes. im lucky if i find a squad that only has one sniper. hope they fix the 40mm sometimes it doesnt even go off it just blanks out.
i used to think the m60 was about right, but coming from someone who used medic for the first 2 weeks of playing, it is a bit overpowered. the noobtubing get's quite annoying, but my UMP has a few things to say to those who miss ;) as of yusturday ive been getting CTD's and game freeze ups that need a task manager kick in the ass to kill BC2. hopefully it doesnt continue with R9.
