Man that last video was amazing.

Finally finished my custom built PC today that I basically only got because of BF3. It gave me an excuse to go play some BC2 again and I got stuck playing it for hours and hours.

To those of you who have never played a Battlefield game and plan on picking up BF3... here are a few aspects of the game that you will not see in any trailer:

- Maps are huuuge. Expect to do a lot of walking/running (especially when playing rush and there are no vehicles available and you have no squad mates to spawn on). It's not uncommon to have to run from your deployment all the way to where the action is.
- Choppers/jets are not easy to fly. It takes a lot of practice to be good enough to the point where you're not hurting your team's chances of winning.
- If you thought COD was brutal to play when you're not winning, you aint seen nothing yet. Running into an organized defensive team whilst attacking really tests your abilities to resist rage quitting.
- You will also not have fun if you decide to "lone wolf" it. The beauty of BF is teamwork. It gets you far. Always try to play with other people you know or make some friends online who are in the same boat as you.

Feel free to ask questions if you're not familiar with any other of the BF games.

I found in Bad Company 2, the best way to "lone wolf" it is to find a good sniping spot. I don't know how many people I've sniped off in that game just by myself on a mountain or something.

But yes, if you were to just go running in the open by yourself...you will die.
Usually I would just run around the edge of the map where nobody really is and find where the spawn is....and just stick to there. :lol:

It is way more fun to get a squad of friends to play with though.

Being a lone wolf sniper is probably the most useless teammate you could have though. It's one way to play the game but it's probably the most dull way of playing it.

I love the bullet drop and I love when I pick somebody off from VERY far away when they are running. Usually when I'm a sniper I'm on the top of the scoreboard.

In BF2 flying a helicopter wasn't bad, but flying a jet was excruciating for me :lol:


So many times I'd lift off and I'd end up diving into the ocean or crashing into a building...


And of course you'll get those trolls on your team that gets people to pack into a helicopter, only for them to crash it :towel:

This video shows you a lot of stuff that you probably missed in the Caspian Border trailer. Definitely some neat things in there like the scope glint and the subtleties of knifing someone.

Completely disagree. An effective sniper can tip the battle in your favor easily.

Key word is "effective". I would say that less than 1% of snipers out there are truly effective.

Only if they're not sniping.

Shotgun/blinkyball recons can be devastating.

Recon + G3 + C4 + motion sensors + defending = ridiculously effective.

I don't believe I have ever played with or against a dominating sniper, who is actually sniping...

I've played with snipers who dominate with the G3 and those pesky shotguns lol...

Agreed.

Very informative video as the guy definitely knows his military jargon. But I can't get over how many times he says "Capsian" instead of Caspian lol.
