PSM3 magazine provides and excellent explanation of the classes in Battlefield 3, coupled with a great graphic of the different soldiers in BF3.
Medic player right here:D.
RECON all the way
I play all classes, whoever's needed at that moment but medic and engineer are my favourites, Recon least I think as I prefer to be on the front line all the time. see you there, on the front line cant wait to see PSM3 scans
i dont have a specified class or a fixed load out to go by i choose based on the map/situation/tactics im going to use and what side im on (in Rush) but i have to admit i rarely go with the midc but i do sometimes most of the times i go engi tho
Hooray! the sniper doesn't have that stupid wookie suit anymore.
I can't stand the RECON class, not because it's snipers, but the fact that I've seen an entire team of RECON way too often in Bad Company 2 and 90% of the time they're selfish players who ignore A and B objectives while fighting over the one guy running through a flat area, parking their ass at base purely for a high K/D ratio, it's just sad. I wish DICE would knock RECON down a peg or two. It just shows players lack variety. Experiment with different classes.
Engineer or Medic for me. Mostly engineer
Engineer here, someone has to take out those tanks.
that's me :D ..lol i would LOVE to have a nice and organized team everyone with one different class and playing the game the way its supposed to be played my buddies just play the game to get trophies or just to get a high k/d ratio :/ its so hard to find people that play with headsets and talking and communicating ...
Blowing up stuff FTW.
OOOOH YEEAAH! Battlefield 3 looks like it will be the Pinnacle of Performance...much like the Macho Man!
Well said Randy.
i love em all cant wait for the beta!
The wait for this game, I WANT IT NOW
Only 120 days or so left :)
That's to long of a wait.
lotta gaming to do in the mean time. i don't wanna be one of those people that give their list...but off the top of my head i can think of UC3 beta in july, deus ex in august, resistance 3 and rage in september (and from dust maybe), and that should bring us right into the bf3 beta. guess the point is, plenty to keep us busy in the mean time.
Anyone know when the Beta for medal of honour owners starts?
Beta starts in September. I think MoH owners are the first to get access.
COD'ers stop coming over and getting on the Battlefield bandwagon!!! Your ruining my BFBC2 experience. All you do is camp and recon. You're useless to the team. GTFO!!! IF YOU'RE SCARED TO DIE IN A VIDEO GAME THEN YOU DEFINITELY ARE A SISSY! Stop ruining my game. Go play Black flops and MW2! It's not about Kill/death ratio! it's about the team and the win.
wait,why does the assault have the med kit? it should be with the support
Grunts are learning to care for minor injuries in real life. Why not in Battlefield as well?
oooo,ok,it would just make more sense to put medic kits on the class titled 'support' that the guys that would suppress the enemies.
I find that weird too. It looks like they swapped the assault and medic class now. I dont like it, seems the assault class will be overpowered..
The assault class can't give ammo now and you have to chose between grenade launcher or med kit :(
Honestly it works much better like this than the way it was in bc2. This is how it was in bf 2142 and it was MUCH more balanced.
I think it's because the Assault class is usually the one whos on the front line a lot, therefore they would need the med kit more *shrugs* Though at the same time, it makes more sense for Support to have the med kit and Assault the ammo.
Because most Medic class players in BF3 played the class as Assault, they had almost the same weapon loadout and could heal and revive as well. Almost no-one played the Assault class in BF2.
the support is the guy that provides covering/suppress fire for the medic when he tends to a guy. If the support guy is the one treating, who's gonna lay down proper support fire?
Thank you for smacking some sense into me! Supress fire makes more sense with a light machine gun that can spew bullets all day long
I wish you all gamed on pc's it would be so fun and epic! lol All a pc needs is a decent graphics card a good processor and a 500w+ power supply and your good to go 4-8gb of ram should be standard with any dx11 PC
Well the first bad company assault could heal themselves with a injector. I guess they are letting assault heal themselves again.
female sniper?!or its just me!
I get a feeling they're going to make gillie suits for recon class a specialization. Would be nice though, being able to switch looks between vegetation and urban areas of the map.
Good to see another game than Brothers In Arms where supressing fire is actually... supressing.
Didn't that one mod (ProjectReality) for BF2 have it? RedOrchestra2 has it too.
I can't wait to play BF3. Still going to take some getting used to the Assault kit having a defib instead of an ammo box. I wonder if they're going to add an All Weapons Kit like we saw in BC2.
I switch between the classes depending on where I can help advance my squad the best (minus recon, cuz I just don't have the patience for sitting on a hilltop with a sniper rifle all day). But What I will miss in the assault class it the ability to drop ammo and regenerate grenades for the M203 launcher. When I first discovered that you can regen grenades for the launcher, i though it was cheap, but then realized that so much of the gameplay was based around distructible environments that it actually made sense to be able to equip more than just 2 grenades per spawn.. especially if you were the assault class. Either way, I think BC2 multiplayer is a masterpiece for console online shooters, and I can't wait to see what dice has done with BF3!
Awesome! Now because the Asualt and Medic class have switched...Now there should be more "Medics" in the field. There 1 to no Medics in field in BC2 everytime I play. BF3 will be F**king Sweet!!!!
is there a beta for the ps3 ? .. i have medal of honor, i wish i get it from it , it would worth the 60$ if i got the beta ... can anyone answer me ? .. :)
yes as long as you have the MOH limited edition where it says BF3 beta included on the cover
Wait, so even if you buy used, you still get into the Beta? I bought my copy like a week ago...Do I still get into the beta?
sorry i just read this maybe legit who knows "Participation in the beta requires: EA account Online pass code LE/limited edition disk Xbox live gold" If you have all this you get in 1 week earlier than other ways
Stupid hype ... COMMENCE! A non-Campaign based 2 Player 10 Mission Co-Op Campaign? Customizable Dogtags and Classes? Autolog a la BattleLog? SOLD
One is for blowing up stuff One is for Sniping stuff One is for reviving stuff One is for killing stuff There, all is explained.
Throw it up if you play all classes effectively and constantly like me! You gotta be able to adapt in any situation. It's to know how to use all classes. Lone wolfs are no addition to a team.
i suppose i will play recon the least of them all,as usual.other 3 though seem appealing to me^^
It's either Assault or Recon for me. Recon is actually quite a good team player if the player dishes out other team campers,call in air strikes, and defend teammates defending/destroying M-COM stations. If the player just goes far behind the map for k/d ratio it ruins the objectives and the game. It really depends on the player for all the classes.
I guess I'm going Assault and Support. Although, I have a feeling I'll be using Support a lot more than Assault.
