Just persist with it Bracko. I eventually got onto a server and we won 4 games in a row.

yeah, I am... pain in the ass that there's only ever one or 2 SQDM servers on Xbox though.

I actually like the gamestyle, just sick of getting mutilated or coming second by a few kills every time.

I didn't realise you could do that, what an arsehole.

seems a bit silly really, since people are only using it for one thing... points. not really a necessary game mechanic if that is all that is happening, they should slow the cool down, and make them invulnerable imo.

if you mean shooting others so you can gain points from yours, yeah fair call. but i think the point is that enemies can use ammo kits and med kits dropped down to help themselves. you wont get points but itll heal/resupply them. so you can shoot them if you need.

no i'm reffering to the ability to shoot them. seems the only people that are shooting them are friendlies so as they can steal points.

Might start adding the other PS3 people soon, getting sick of playing with retards who either go gung-ho while ignoring objectives, crash choppers constantly or can't seem to work as a team.

God damn it, playing a game, we have all 5 caps winning by 300 points. Hacker comes in and rapes us 103-0, we ended up losing the game. So frustrated.

While searching for that reporting website I started watching videos on youtube of hackers and saw evidence of this hack -
Media Player
The video was posted 29 Nov 2011, which is a bit of a worry that the hack is still around.

This hack is weird (skip to about 0:59). The person just stands still and racks up kills with the medic kit. I never understand the point of hacking but I particularly don't understand this one where the hacker doesn't even do anything at all.

surely we can segregate them, like have a hacker only server where the can all stand around the spawn shiving each other.

i mean no need to ruin everyone elses game and shit, just another banned account. i imagine when the stats say longest headshot with knife 600+ metres there's a stat that would be instaban.

I was thinking the exact same thing the other day, can you imagine all the things you could graph/pivot table, you could go all sabermetric on stats to work out the best gun combo/ game play for certain maps, logging your improvement over time, whether you should spend time capping flags or docking tickets, man the possibilities are endless!

I've seen Youtube evidence of hacking in XBox360 and PS3 for the game MW2, so it's possible. I've only heard of hacking in BF3 and BC2 on consoles but don't believe I've experienced it.

MW2 on PS3
Media Player

Quote:

Basically, i joined a S&D game on the ps3. I was wondering why the screen was all whited out and i couldn't move. This is the first time to see anything like this. Apparently it's been a while for a while. I couldn't move after the second round and the person that did the hack just basically owned us while we sit there unmovable.

yea i saw it in BC2 on xbox, but rarely, i think this is just due to the different audience to the respected formats.

Console players are more casual and PC players are uber nerds who like code and fiddling with shit, i'm not speaking for the entirety just the majority.

yea they nerfed them early because everyone flying choppers was crying about them, they are completely useless now, over sized pea shooters.

now a good pilot can dominate the whole game, far too much emphasis on flying in the game.

yeah, they need to nerf air vehicles again, possibly drop stingers down to 1 or 2 and have a chopper die with 2 or 3 quick shots.

I think 2-3 players should be able to bring down a chopper, and people in the chopper (not the pilot) should be more prone to dying to stop engineers just sitting on the side and repairing the whole time.

nah just lock on and wait for them to pop, unscope, scope and lock on again and shoot.

its when the good pilot knows where to go to get out of your line of sight. thats annoying.

Yeh agreed, flares are the issue. They almost need to invent a weapon specific for BF3 that fires a projectile faster than a grenade launcher so that it requires skill to hit a chopper out of the sky, (hitting a chopper with a grenade launcher is way to hard), but it gives a good chopper pilot the chance to evade without flares, then can the flares from the game, or only make the useful for air to air weapons.

Why do you have to counter EVERYTHING people say in this thread? You are not god's gift to battlefield 3 so stop acting as if you're the greatest player in the world. If it was that easy, do you think the issue would exist? NO. It's not that simple. Lock on, fire rocket, flares. OK, attempt to lock on again, oh wait he is long gone out of range. That or if you do actually get a shot on target, it still doesn't kill the vehicle in one hit and you're stuck with the same issue.

Also the Javelin needs more than 2 shots (or 3 if you have explosion upgrade). It's ridiculous. If you're on a small server on a vehicle dominated map, nobody uses support and you run around with no ammo unless you die.

^yea j-rod, and when you hit them what next they have just lost %10 health, now what.

yea you can't hit them even though the whole side is open and exposed... i remember it being very easy to headshot chopper pilots in 1943 HD & BC2 what did they change it for.

flares are a problem for the stingers effectiveness but still there should be a damage increase or the choppers armor needs to be downgraded... air tank currently. only way to really deal with them are Javelins which considering the co-ordination and fact it neutralizes a player/warnings, they should really do %70+ damage on most things.

I unlocked the solfam last week and sitting there with that thing is the worst position in the game, you don't get enough points either.
