  • What is the best Joystick for BF2

    I am new to BF2 been playing about 2 months, and just recently moved I lost my joystick so I was gone to buy a new. I am not that good at flying of course, I am using the key board, but I want a good joystick for when I am on the ground two any suggestions. Not real concerned about price.

    I just got a Logitech extreme 3d pro. Rotating handle, 8 position hat, throttle, and 12 buttons. Not bad for 30 bucks at Fry's.

      I have a Saitek Cyborg Evo. Pretty much the same specs as the Logitech but I thought the throttle had a smoother movement. Ran me about $35 from Best Buy. But you can get a refurb from Saitek's sitef for like $15.
      I'd get a HOTAS setup if money is no object though. I've heard good things about the Saitek x52.

        I have an Evo as well and have been very happy with it. I used to have a Logitech and echo Penguin's comment about the throttle feeling smoother.

                  It really depends, I'd say an Saitek X52(my current)which is a whopping $130.00, i used to fly with a sidewinder until that stopped working(7 years of harsh abuse) but it was an awesome stick. SoIf you can find a sidewinder GET IT! but if you can afford a X52 then buy that.

                    Joysticks are like tampons, you know why?

                    I probably shouldn't say the answer here

                      I've got a Sidewinder2 that i've been using for years. It works great for BF2.
                      Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

                        Listen to the man, he speaks truth.

                        On a side note, you might want to steer clear of the saitek st290pro. It's probalby just my config, but I got it a couple days ago, and whenever I have it plugged in I get disconnected constantly while playing BF2. It runs fine when I unplug it, so I'm assuming its the joystick. Just something to consider.

                          I've got a sidewinder presicion pro 2. It's pretty good but it's old and is starting to get kinda loose (It's getting harder to make extremely preseice movements). I might try flying with the mouse once I get a better one. I've currently got a Microsoft Intllipoint Optical. It's ok but it has recentlly started twitching (It's doing it right now as I type), it moves around in a very small area when I'm not even touching it. I'm hoping to get a Logitech G5 for Christmas (or maybe one of the newer Logitech MX series mice) so hopefully I won't have the twitching problem and it has adjustable sensitivity so I can swing my tank cannon around fast to find AT guys but still have control when I get out of the vehicles.

                            The joystick (and throttle) im currently using right now is the Saitek X52 and id definately recommend it. You can find it for around $110 on the internet or a bit more at your local best buy or circut city.

                            The customizable profiles are really cool. Its extremely customizable and precise.

                            Go for it if you can stomach the price :)
