  • No mounted machine guns in BF3

    In previous Battlefield games — virtually all of them — there were select points on maps that featured mounted machine guns for players to use in order to protect an area, but that’s a thing of the past with Battlefield 3. Since most weapons can now feature a bipod, it means they can be mounted on most surfaces and take over the role of the dedicated mounted MG. This is according to DICE’s Alan Kertz.

    There is not as much a need for them.

      I sort of agree but I am disappointed they wont be back. I always liked being a recon or something and hopping on a 40mm MG and tearing stuff up.

        That's kind of disappointing. Clear-cutting trees on Nelson Bay or White Pass Rush with a mounted MG has always proven effective for defense.

            Static map items have always seemed really ineffective to me as learning their positions made them easily counterable.

                Also agree but there is something satisfying about seeing 5-7 tracers reaching out to touch an enemy helo. Everyone jumps onto whatever emplaced weapon to bring it down. Teamwork like that brings a tear of joy to my eye.

                  Nothing like playing a game of rush on africa harbor, laying out smoke on the bridge and firing away at blinded enemies with the mounted MG across the tracks.

                    Not sure which game you play, but if you are talking about BC2 i think its called Arica Harbor or something.

                      The support LMG better damage helicopters then. I don't want to have to always pack the AA missile unlock just to swat those pesky attack helos out of the sky.

                      If you're playing the game, be in the correct TeamSpeak Channel.

                          90% sure I saw something via twitter that you can't damage them with small arms fire.

                          Having played Vietnam I can't say I disagree with it, I never minded packing AA, hopefully it will prove to be an effective counter.
