i try to play whatever role fits my team's situation best at the time, i'm decent in any vehicle and with most weapons, once in awhile i'll go sniper, but more often i find myself destroying tunnels or planting them since the proper use or destuction of them can change the tide in battle pretty quickly
my main priority is getting the trust of my team mates by flying the transport huey, i pick em up and drop em off soon enough they ignore choppers spawning and wait for me to land in main base to get them. it feels great seeing 5 people waiting somehwre other than a helipad on a map! :P if theres no choppers i quite like to use the car-15, its cool i a pretty good close combat fighter. 7/10 times i get in close combat i come out on top :D [still waiting to be asked to join a clan...][these clan leader n00bs no nothing..]
yo people most of times i cover the whole team with sniper or a phantom thats what i like just shoot people from high places thats the reason i use the m21 and i like it!!!!!!!!!!!:sarrow:
I just play a normal grunt who goes for flags :)
My role? Trying to win, which is what other people do in this game i'm glad to see.
PadreUh - that's what I do... I'm what you'd call "support". Recon, long range artillery, engineer. I usually score low cause I'm doing all the crap you don't get points for, like blowing up towers, pointing out the enemy, and setting up for long range assaults. I do whatever is needed, whether that means flying a chopper or manning the guns, though I like to stick to the same routine with the M110, Howitzers and mortars. I will say that I rarely get a cooperating spotter, unless A.M. Foxtrot's in the map.
Your the only one who said that they continualy man artillery!! I really like using the mortar alot. People get surprised on how effective the mortar really is. But the only way I can use it effectivly is to go first, spot a place with my binoculars, kill myself then spawn as a engineer set up the mortar and blast away. The mortar is extreemly effective and I hope that more people will start using it and I hope that more people will spot a target when I call "Request a target"!!!
i cant aim the mortar :lol: On maps like the ho chi mihn trail ill play assult and blow away nva campers:KTA: or ill fly a swpan chopper on maps like operation game warden or the cobra on flaming dart. i usually use the assult or sniper kits the m40/m21/svd/other nva sniper rifle rule!!! i hate the m16 be if you will be in close combat it works:uhm:
I think that we should make a FAQ or guide or something on the weapons in BF:V. Make some sort of stikied thing. I think that would be pretty cool and it would help out alot of people. If anyone wants to do that with me please say so and hopefully we can organize something and put up an official BF:V FAQ.
I am usuall on Flaming Dart so I tend to mix it up a bit. In the beginning I am usually Engineer going for towers (or SA-7 doing the same). Last night though I had an awsome run as SA-7 inf. I kept shooting down f4's and a couple of cobras, then I took a zsu (the nva AA tank) and hid behind some trees and unloaded on every arvn aircraft I seen, was 9 and 0 then this bastard snuck up on me and well we all know how that goes... But SA-7, eng, or sniper :smokin:
Im usually using the car 15 when i can but when i cant i use the m14. Im not that good at flying planes so i just suicide bomb and jump out before i die.:-D
