  • Looks like a good game but....

    Well i love the battlefield series and all and ill be getting the game tomorrow or within this week BUT there are some things i need to know first.

    1. What is the maximum amount of players that can be on a server?

    2. How many machine gun weapons are there in the game and how useful are they?

    3. Like Battlefield 2142 is there a commander position in this game?

    4.How useful is cover in the game with everything being destructible now?

    5. Is the Bloody hit detection fixed or somewhat fixed yet?

    oh and for future reference heres my computer specs

    Windows XP sp 3

    AMD Athlon(tm) 7750 Dual-Core Processor 3.1ghz

    Radeon 4650 1gb

    32

    2. How many machine gun weapons are there in the game and how useful are they?

    You mean LMG? Around 7. Not counting the stationary guns. The m60 a LMG and is currently arguably the most powerful gun in the game. It might be nerfed soon, however. Example video:



    3. Like Battlefield 2142 is there a commander position in this game?

    Nope

    4.How useful is cover in the game with everything being destructible now?

    It is useful, but dynamic. You can still find permanent cover like cars or trucks, but most cover can be destroyed so it's best to not stand behind them TOO long. Cover is still extremely useful, just for shorter periods of time.

    5. Is the Bloody hit detection fixed or somewhat fixed yet?

    Somewhat fixed. It's definitely better.

      your computer can run the game, my computer is right around the kind that your running, i just have all the graphics set to the lowest possible setting. some freezes here and there depending on how much destruction is happening but i still get around it. and as far as the rest goes saphric pretty much told you the rest of the answers. one thing about commander, from my experience in the game, commanders are not needed. you want a mortar strike, snipers have a unlock for that. spotting infantry and tanks. well if your team is good, or if your on the teamspeak server on the right team channel, if you ask for people to spot tanks or snipers or infantry and most people will spot them for you. and far as giving out orders. its always better to make a squad and have people join you from teamspeak and hand out the orders that way. commanders not needed in here i dont think. oh and now you can spawn on anyone in your squad and not just the squad leader. since technically everyone in the team is a sl..

        well heres a few more questions.

        1. Does shooting a tank or any vehicle in the side or back with a rpg/etc kill them faster?

        2. Was the health indicator removed or does it just not show up in multy player?

        3. Ive heard snipers are better in this game compared to 2142 how much better are we talking about?

          1. Yes

          2. It was removed. Instead, you get blood spatters around the outside of the screen. If you're really badly damaged, things start to go blurry.

          3. I never played 2142. They're one-shot-one-kill in hardcore mode, two shots to kill with most sniper rifles in standard mode (excluding headshots). Snipers also get a bunch of other gear, like the ability to call in mortar strikes, C4, and the ability to carry shotguns instead of rifles.

            Snipers rule unfortunately lol. Had an attack mission and the entire team, that one round, were snipers! Needless to say we did not win, but the K/D ratio was impressive lol. Team work is weak at best unless your lucky to get into a TG group that is using TS3. As for armor, I was able to destroy a M1A1 with a 1 shot rpg, from a roof down onto where the engine compartment is, though the rpg is definitely weaker in head on attacks.

              The major reason most snipers weren't effective in 2142 was because the primary kit is the Assault/medic. When 75% of your team can revive most snipers are an annoyance. In BC2 Assault and Medic are two seperate kits so it tends to dillute the revivers giving snipers that much more power.

                Just to put it into 2142 words. Every sniper is now a Chris Hooper. :row__787:

                  And just to nix this misconception. There is no sniper class. There is recon which can use sniper rifles. But that's not all recon is. Since I suck at most sniper rifles I generally run a recon with the Saiga, 1911, motion sensors and C4 currently but Mortar Strike soon. I just got my Thompson so I might start running with that until I can use the higher end general weapons. So, yeah, when you see a motion sensor right on the object you know it was a Recon, not a sniper, that was up there with you. :P

                      well i know my computer is far from being in the recommended status but my biggest grip about the game so far is. My cpu AND gpu usage will stay at 20/40% when im getting about 30 fps.

                      This makes absolutely NO sense to me

                        I/O throughput limitations could be keeping both your CPU and GPU from being utilized at their highest potential.
