    I used to do that at first, haha. I'm much better now. In fact now I often find myself emptying entire clips/magazines/feeds and switching to my secondary more often, which I feel is better.

    Same, running out of round mid shoot out is never good. Extended mags make it all the better though.

    Reload my assault rifles after each fire fight though.

    Metro last night was the first proper outting that the M39 had and it decimated the other side. Really is an awesome weapon.

    With the LMGs, you do need to think about your ammo situation. When do you have a lull in the action, is it safe to reload etc. That is one thing I love about the 870, M1014 and DAO-12, you can interrupt the reload if you run into company :D

    Just got the M93 pistol from Co-op. Another 60K and I get my SG553.

    DAO-12 is a beast. been using it as my shotgun of choice since day one because i got physical warfare somehow (with useless SPECACT skin). loving it with flechette ammo. just unlocked extended rounds last time i had it.

    a quick question, i guess other people also get this issue of jets becoming unresponsive at high altitude? is it a case of going too high? i usually don't get it except chasing other jets, which makes me forget the surroundings.

    Didn't that happen in BF2 as well? Seem to remember that if you went to high the get essentially stalled and you were, well.. screwed.

    there is an unbelievably low ceiling that will make ur jet stall.

    also, i didnt play BC2, but motion sensor is BF2142 was a beast.

    this version im ok. could use more points but its very OK.

    nobody can hide! :D (except when they're prone........

    Ah didnt know Ziip had got servers for BF3, will have to find and favourite those also lol. You guys still on the same TS from Brink times?

    I get annoyed with the RPG on non-hardcore, you can hit the person full on and sometimes somehow they still survive.

    Absolutely agree with this, the ceiling on Canals for jets is absolutely stupid. Literally as I was taking off to swing round back to the map I was stalling already... what the hell lol. The ceiling for that map definitely needs to go up, although part of me thinks that all the "fog" in the map may blurry things if we fly any higher :eyebrow:

    agree, ceiling are way too low, and there need to be audio warning before stalling occurs.

    If it is a wireless one I think it has to be on and synced up before BF3 is launched. A bit frustrating for when it turns itself off after a while. I keep twiddling the thumbstick each time i die (never any danger of it turning off then !)

    Aye Niro. You should still have the right connection info from the games in Brink (Sorry about that by the way. I still think it#s awesome, it just didn't live up to the hype and expectations of many).

    Should catch you this evening fella.

    There's a 300 foot ceiling at the moment; they've said they're considering raising it, and I for one really hope so :D

    Looks like queuing has been added to the latest server build, so that's nice.

    In fairness, if they raise the height too far it'll make the choppers easy meat for the jets. Once they get a bit more altitude it gives jets a much bigger error margin on strafing/attack runs.
