    Rank 10 assault gun is only one I use really.

    Only one I find that hits where you aim.

    I haven't been playing for at least 5 days now. My internet is broken. I bet Redwings has got something to do with it :)

    Unfortunately the game in the current stage is very buggy in my opinion. Not able to join the squad, not able to browse servers as in battlelog, random melee kills are only a few things that annoy me. Will see what the new patch brings... hopefully something good.

    Have you tried level 10 medic weapon? Is it any good, or as rubbish as the others?

    I'm enjoying the game, although it's only any good if you can get in a decent squad with comms. Had a first go as a tanker the other night with Filthy and a couple others. I think MG would be proud as I got 36 kills before we finally got taken down.

    Some of the guns take a bit of getting used to, the main ones I use are:
    Assault: MP18 Trench
    Medic: Cei-Rigotti Optical or Mondragon Optical
    Support: M1909 Benet-Mercie Telescopic
    Scout: SMLE MKIII Marksman and Gewehr 98 Sniper

    Haven't got any rank 10 kits yet so can't comment on those weapons, but I get killed a lot by the Martini-Henry Infantry and Hellriegel 1915 Factory, so I guess they're pretty popular which I suppose must make them good, either that or it's a status thing.

    One bug I encounter is that the medals aren't consistent, they seem to vary server by server and sometimes they change between the loading screen and the in game menu so it can be hard to complete them at times. Ralthen suggested repairing the game through Origin, but this didn't fix it for me. It's not a massive deal, but does get annoying when when you're working towards a target and then suddenly you're looking at medals from two weeks ago.

    Another bug is when joining on friends, if their squad is full it doesn't let you join or create another squad, can be frustrating as I don't want to break up their squad but I also don't want to play as a lone wolf.

    I've had mixed results with melee kills too, I walked right up behind someone the other day, hit F, goes through the animation but the enemy disappears and re-appears next to me with a shovel in my neck.

    I have found that I needed to turn the in game sound right down as it can drown out Teamspeak. I use push to talk using the left ALT key, rather than voice activated, so I've disabled the key binding of the in-game VoIP.


    Another observation I've had with medals is the progress you make doesn't seem to reset once the 7 days to earn them has expired. For example The Order of St. Christopher medal requires you to perform five different tasks. The first two for me are still complete even though the 7 days are up and I can no longer work towards that one. I assume that's just a bug and once they fix the issue all progress will be reset on uncomplete medals, but I'm hoping not, as some could take me a considerable amount of time to earn otherwise.

    Yeah, the game in general is quite enjoyable. It's just those bugs that make you cry sometimes :)

    Building Thrash Pc as we speak ready for bf 1 goodness. Can't wait for the trashman to join us. In the history I have been playing Battlefield games there has been only two people ever I considered to the perfect all rounders one is trash one was lolyn at 50k.

    Put the trashman on any mode any map and no matter how much he bitches about it he always finished top3 . In fact the earliest memory I have of playing a battlefield game is when i joined 50k and got into my first ever squad with weets and trash. They frightened the sweet life out of me. In Bf2 they were really good but in 2142 they were great. None of this snipey snipe camping malarkey it was just balls to the walls assault.

    It will be good to squad with the trashman and all we need is weets...maybe in time for 2143.....

    Trash pc is now built in and now going through installing all the bits and bobs. Luckily Msi software is amazing and once installed it will automatically update everything to the latest drivers and what not with little to no personal interaction. Now to test gaming on it;) I think some GTA 5 is in order.

    The PC is amazing however origin is aload of crap and wont accept my password and wont send the password reset email so no gaming for me today! will have to finish work tomorrow and see if they pull their finger out and sort it out!

    and the only reason i was so good was because red was right behind ready to get your ammo and revive points lol!

    trash the fastest way and easiest way is to phone them. When I got banned for buying bf1 froom south africa they never called back or responded to emails. It took me a week to sort it out.

    Reds, they banned you? Why? Are you not allowed to buy a game using a VPN? How did you sort this out?

    Thrash, lloking forward to playing with you again!

    GoRedwings Tagged Donator

    Yep I was banned for buying bf1 through a vpn even though everyone else did it and they were fine. I tired emailing them using their support customer service and what not they never replied and it took me a week to sort out when I had to phone them and demanded to talk to their supervisor/manager. I miss3ed most of the beta becuase of this and they finally unbanned me one day before the beta ended...

    I was not happy.

    It was great to meet trash after all these years. Like most Bfbérs I have met such a nice person.

    I would love to meet you bully. Although I must admit it always feel strange to use people real life names rather than their ingame name. I have met a few over the years. Angelo, that member who was born in the uk but moved to germany, trash.

    I would love to meet M, tolly, weets pretty much teh entire 2142 crew.

    errrr.....I don't drink. Every year we have a christmas works party where we don;t have to pay for alcohol and free food but I haven;t been to it in like 5/6 years

    Also is it just me or it really difficult to get into a squad with your friends list? What the poiont having a friends list when you can;t even join to them. It is a real nighmare trying to get into a bfb squad. It happens once in a blue moon then most of the time I am by myself.
