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.

wow.

sif i counter. ive agreed with heaps of shit too.

you say "oh he is out of range" well thats a good pilot.

its going to be hard to counter a good pilot anyway.

yeah javelin is crap with only 2 shots, got to use explosive perks or else its pointless.

so true, in all of these story's Jarry tells us, they're hypothetical, obviously we all know how the real version would go.

just stop telling them in first person Jarry and we'll be able to understand.

You can move away from the solfam and continue to use it. It's a bit better but it still leaves you vulnerable. After setting up the solfam, press your enter/exit button, find a hiding spot, and press your fire button to continue using that solfam.


For PC players, does anyone find that the mouse sensitivity while using the solfam is terrible? Is there a way to increase it without increasing my mouse sensitivity on foot? For example if I want to turn 90 degrees with the solfam it takes about 10 swipe moves with my mouse. However if I use a controller it turns faster.

yea my mate level 15 General, said it goes off them if you leave it, you need to keep it locked on I was exiting before as i would lay it down then go to my favorite sniping spot.

maybe i got confused and he was just saying that you need to re-lock everytime they go out of range???

I got accused for hackzoring last night after getting a headshot kill with an m4a1 from the middle of the clearing between E and D on Operation Firestorm on someone on the top level of one of the buildings in D.

Normally that sort of stuff I would just lol and ignore, but since there's the facility of just looking up a profile and a series of clicks, it got me thinking of how does one defend accusations of hackzors and what happens if you get reported. Do 'they' monitor your k/d and scoring or do they watch some footage?

No, the igla and stinger just need to lock on faster, have a better lock range and also the sight needs to be bigger like a javelin. Basically, just turn them into the javelin but only with air lock ons.

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.

Fixing the voice comms on PS3 yesterday helped a lot with that - it was actually possible to talk to squad mates, get a soflam/javelin combo going and start raping some pilots. I found there were a lot of yanks on the asian servers who take it much more seriously ("come on, come on, be the US team, be the US team...YES WE"RE THE US TEAM!! HOO-AH!) and tend to work better together.

yea it works well, but as i said it take like a full squad to sort that out and they can take two or 3 Javelins to get... and if a vehicle has stealth, forever to lock.

but yea my usual crew dominate with the Javelins, the stinger on the other hand is a waste of time, everyone has flares and it doesn't do any damage.

Fair call, I haven't bothered with the Stinger since I unlocked Javelins. Unless you've got a Soflam up I just try to ignore the fuckers*

yea most maps you can just nulify them by capping objectives and get the win.

take a very talented pilot to impact a game, unless your team are complete muppets running around after them with pea shooters they rarely have any impact on the outcome.

I had a go at him about 2 days about the same mistake

Server crashed during this game: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3...9/1/366221997/

So I don't think I got any of the stuff from it

Thought I'd do the decent thing last night and be the soflam guy. Was locking onto tanks and helis for extended periods and not just for a few seconds.

Did this repeatedly. No javelins flew. None what so fucken ever.

Then get "why won't you tards put up a soflam?".

Ragequit and go to bed. Can't sleep.

I was in a game where the soflam was up but it wasn't locking onto anything. So I got into a jet and shot them down myself - getting better in the jet now after watching a few flying tips videos on youtube.

yeah theres always multiple situations when someone is complaining.

i'm probably just more optimistic.

if yu got a good squad very rarely does your team get raped by something "overbalanced" because usually theres always a way to counter.

even usas frag which seems the least counter-able thing, theres ways. squad play is highly valuable.

USAS frag is counterable by being in a helicopter or a jet or tank, the fucker will smash through anything else. Even my trusty FAMAS is no match for some douche frag spamming your position.

yeah tapout, all well and true, but the levels that people tend to spam the usas frag either dont have those vehicles or give infantry enough cover against them.

Managed to get an 18 kill streak, my best. It involved tanks and AS VAL. That gun is so OP.

the as vl confuses me. i love it, been smashing with it lately. but what confuses me is stats wise, compared to other guns, its not that good. its def the bets PDW weapon. but not the best weapon. but when you use it it definately feels like it performs much better than it does on paper.

XB controller is pretty good, I can't see a joystick being better.



also for those on Android there is an update for the BF3 (unofficial) app which makes it a pretty neat little app actually. you can check progression on unlocks and assignments to work out how to get your next weapons/attachments.
