  • Mortars

    Has anyone seen them in the Beta? Im dying to know how they work and their effectiveness in BF3. Please someone tell me that its not a level 98 unlock or something ridiculous like that.

    I don;t think you could get them in the beta HiTest....some items you unlocked and it just gave a "not available in beta" message. I never seen any in use.

      In the beta, the support kit would acquire a Mortar after unlocking the C4 I think, making it the level 3 or 4 support kit unlock.

      However, the mortars were deactivated and not available in beta, so we know absolutely nothing about how they work. Sorry :/

        Re: Mortars

        The only thing we know is what we saw on XBOX/PS3 singleplayer campaign playthrough a while back. It was the one at night in Iran where you gotta save a hostage. The mortar fires ILLUM rounds in the play-through). I believe is was the M224 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M224_Mortar), but the M252 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M252_Mortar) is also a possibility.

          You can see a mortar briefly on the ground in this video. Not used though.

                    Is that default or unlockable?

                        Its a support unlockable, i believe its after the PKP and before the M240b. I doubt there is any type of necessary coordination to fire effectly.. most likley just a point, shoot, then adjust.

                          Mortar squad

                          Two support kits with mortars and shotguns with Frag rounds equipped.
                          Two assaults.

                          support kits use Frag12 shotguns to dig mortar pits, set up mortars in pits, procede to rain death upon the enemy. Assaults cover and revive.

                              Re: Mortars

                              Apparently, mortars can be used as anti-vehicle weapons:
                              Construction sites dotting the area bring interesting possibilities for infantry to hide in elevated positions, spot vehicles, and take them down by mortar or RPG.
                              Source

                              I'm guessing that there will NOT be multiple kinds of ammo for the mortars (i.e. anti-personnel and anti-armor) just like there are not different kinds of tank rounds in the game. Do we know for sure?
