Where do I find complete documentation for BFV? The manual included only shows general movements. I often get killed by some 3 letter acronym; where is the list of acronyms and what they stand for? At the end of an internet game a score sheet comes up with symbols like crossbones, stars, etc; where is the list of what these symbols mean? The documentation included in the box is terribly lacking!

after the end of the multiplayer game on the score sheet the symbols mean: #=your player number (used for admins), next symbols to the left is your ping, next to the left is deaths, i think the next is kills, then points. you earn points by taking over flags or stealing the flag in capture the flag.

if you give me an example of the acronym i could probably tell it to you, but i dont know about a master list.

Though the documentation is a bit lacking, I think they assume you've played BF1942, where the symbols are similar. Star/Medal = Points You earn points by getting kills, making flag points neutral, and turning flags to your side. Soldier/Crosshairs = Kills Kills you can earn a number of ways, both directly (shooting players) or indirectly (napalm). Skull/Crossbones = Deaths Pound/Number Sign = Player Number Used by admins and players. Can be used with the "ab" connamd to add people to your buddy list quickly. (hit ` for console, type "ab #" w/o quotes - # = number of player) As for the acronym, there are a few dozen three-letter combos. If you can recall the exact one I'm sure we can help you out.
