i found it to be harder flying the jets on ps3. maybe i'm just more used to an xbox controller now, but the length of the analog sticks made it difficult for me. i could run and gun with the best of em mind you.

Yeh, It really is.

Jets are fun when you get used to them, but they're definitely not for people who want a lot of points. So much work to stay up there, take down enemy jets, spot, disable tanks, and you'll still more than likely be near the bottom of the scoreboard.

Oh well, it's still fun.

sometimes when I play and respawn far as fuck, all I see is flies moving around in the sky and chasing each other like idiots, I mean flying a jet is dope, but If you want to get in the action use a gun, if you want to use a jet or a tank get some game like this



or get in my level like this game



just kidding flying a jet is hard in bf3


I want to see the world burn

crazy gameplay. i've been using the guided missles since i unlocked them. not very effective honestly. get some disables, but it takes so long to reload dudes are usually repaired or destroyed by someone else by then. after seeing that video it looks like i'll be going back to the rocket pods.

Speaking of which, a jet pilot with rocket pods could've taken care of these guys. But he probably didn't know they were there w/o anyone telling him.

It's still cool to see all those missiles chase the helicopters tho.

I gave up on the soflam because no one would shoot the targets I marked. Apparently people on PS3 can't figure out what to do to the big red box in the sky. I went back to the MAV and I'll use the CITV station on tanks to mark targets if the driver has guided shells.

i watch youtube videos of people destroying everything in jets, they see an enemy jet & then kill it in like 3 seconds of shooting. i have yet to get a jet kill, just a bunch of hit markers & some disable/destroys. :/

The main reason I don't like jets is because they take two people off the Battlefield, and even with as much time as I've put into this game, I have never once seen a jet pilot pull the kind of shit you see on YouTube. All I ever see is 4 jets chasing each other for an entire round or crashing into mountainsides.

On PC it's probably not a big deal, but on console when it's only 12 on 12, losing two guys to jets for an entire round sucks. It especially sucks because the maps that have jets also have attack helicopters, so you actually lose 4 guys to air vehicles. 8 people on the ground on a map like Caspian Border is shitty.

I don't think jets should've been in this game at all, but if they have to have them, I think it should be one jet per side like the Rush maps.

I'm so sick of the USAS12 and DAO12. Those guns destroyed Operation Metro, which was the best Rush map, imo.

and squads suck ass on PSN. I might actually move to PC to avoid all the bullshittery on console.

People use Rush on Metro to pad their stats. Don't let that experience ruin it for you. If you go on Battlelog, you can find a ton of people who only play Metro Rush. Try playing Conquest instead, it's better than Rush on this game anyhow.

The patch works.

Also, I destroyed a vehicle with my torch then found out that you can actually finish that achievement by destroying an enemy spawn beacon with it smh smh

I use it, but the driver needs to be using guided shells in order to hit painted targets unless someone on the ground has a javelin. The other day I was sitting in it painting the little birds on Noshar Canals and my driver was taking them out with one guided shell each. Flares won't stop a guided shell because they aren't heat seeking smokeyface

I like canister shells, but the other day it took me 3 or 4 direct hits with the canister shell to disable a Havoc. One guided shell hit will take it out, but it requires two people.

why the hell don't i always get the points or kills to jets when i've played with them? has already happened like 5 times and each time i didn't get any points to it though i had nearly 3k..

the guided shell on the tanks is pretty useless unless you have a friend on the citv. almost no one stays there or if they do they dont lock to anything...

Are you playing Rush or Conquest? I remember hearing that the jet in Rush didn't record your stats with it, not sure if that has been fixed or not.

CITV station for laser designation. If the driver is using guided shells he can hit what you've painted after a lock on, or someone using a javelin could hit an air target you've painted, which is the only way for the javelin to hit air targets.
