That's because COD is made for team deathmatch, BF3 isn't, they just incorporated it.

I<3 COD and this is my first battlefield 3 game.
I learned that battlefield is a more challenged game.
There are no perks and no killstreaks.
So you learn to adapt that Sleight of Hands will never be there for you.
No killstreaks to help you built up kills (not in this game)

BF3 really isn't really made for TMD ( you can't fly or use tank or other cars)

It's more about playing conquest & rush

Overall It's an amazing
but i'll stick to COD

since fucking jaded won't give me his PSN



I want to see the world burn

I didn't see you ask for my PSN, sorry about that. Squads and mics don't even work on PS3 yet, so I haven't been trying to play with anyone.

What do you mean they don't work? I've been playing and people just don't talk but mics work. played in a squad with three guys using microphones and everything worked

Theres flak jacket, ammo, faster sprint, etc.

Mics don't work for a lot of people in game, it has been an issue since the beta and DICE still didn't fix it for retail. It's a well known issue that supposedly DICE is working on. Just google BF3 PS3 mic problems if you want to read more about it. Basically you can't hear someone talk at all or it's extremely choppy to the point that you can't understand them (like talking to someone on a cellphone with bad reception). When they do work, it's intermittently. Your experience definitely isn't in the majority.

Squads are another issue on PS3. Me and a couple friends made a squad then joined a game and it split us all up, one of my friends even ended up on the opposite team. I had to leave the squad it put me in and invite them to join me again in game. Again, both of these issues are well documented problems for people playing on PS3.

Few questions why not just make an Xbox Live Party as a quick fix. Then there is the switch team function when on a normal servers. I mean I felt the game was rushed from the beginning but it's playable.

Meant to quote this then the kid above my original post missed his line in there. But I never liked PSN anyway.

I play on PS3, I didn't buy the game for my 360. I was talking about PS3 issues in my post.

The lasers don't bother me much. I've hated the tactical lights since beta, but they didn't change anything about them. I feel that they are especially too bright and effective outside, which makes no sense at all. Fortunately, it seems that most people don't use them because it gives you away so easily.

Gives you away, and they turn them on before they fire at you, but yeah I def see what you mean when it's too bright outside in the daylight.

Just picked a copy yesterday from my local mom and pop shop(no OWS faggot) and I have to say that there is more campers on this game than on COD. I guess it has to do with the maps being huge. This is my 1st BF3 so I'm just starting to get the hang of it...


...


I think I may pick up MW3 though. Seeing that they fixed their prestige badges.


edit: no tubes? smh

I love tubbing smokeyface

It's stupid because people can easily turn them off and on. But hey it's an advantage.

Any game with prone is going to have people that camp it up, but what I've found from playing enough to be familiar with most maps now, is that people who camp tend to pick the same few spots on each map over and over again. Once you're used to it, you'll always check for them, and they won't get you nearly as much.

This pretty much. I just wait for a little then just run out from the base and get behind them. 5 snipers all watching the same spots are easy to pick off
