In every single map I've played with the exception of the battle on Crete, the biggest problem in every map is tanks. Tanks are the main campers of every single map. Why so much gripe against SMGs? SMGs can't camp. A mills bomb or a rifle shot will end that. you throw a grenade at a tank and it'll shrug it off and keep camping. There's basically nothing to do when a tank gets in the middle of a spawn and everyone runs around getting blown up, every single game. That's what's wrong with this game right now..the lack of Panzerfausts or any type of efficient anti-tank is the reason FH2 isn't as good as it could be, and I think i'm actually done playing FH2 until this is addressed in future theaters because this mod just sucks if you want to be anything other than a tank commander / plane.
The best anti tank wepon is another tank.
Or an anti-tank gun. or at rifles fired in the right spots (you can take out a sherman with the Panzerbusche, just gotta know where to hit it), or with satchels and sticky bombs and mines. Grenades shouldn't do anything to tanks, they didn't in real life. Don't u dare say that "oh, you could toss it into the tank by opening the hatch, lolz." The hatches locked on the inside, so if its closed, the only way its opening is if the commander inside is stupid enough to open it with infy on his tank.
In the end, tanks are really quite easy to deal with. I play as infantry 90% of the time, and I'm usually in the top 5 if not top 3 players.
LordDalanik,is right tanks are evil right now, butt i guess they were in real desert, the only thing that is more deadly to infantry right now is a good artillery team. but murda is right too, you can kill tanks it is really hard and often take ages and you will die many times but eventually you will till it.this kind of success is much nicer than firing a single panzerfaust from 60 meters away. best way right now to kill a tank are other tanks AT guns or the simple mine, to bad most allied tankers keep ignoring those mine flags :rolleyes:
Gah, its Mudra, not MurdaXD Why people, why does everyone mispell my nameXD And its always Murda or MundraXD
I hope the situation will become better when we get out of North Africa. I also hope that Sidi Rezegh is fixed so that the Bristish tanks won't overrun everything in the future.
Remember anti-tank mines. In BF2, it's not possible to remove "frisbee mines" entirely. All you have to do is go prone and start to delploy the mine, get up and run to the tank to drop the mine. It takes a little while to arm, but I've found that tanks often stay in one place for long enough to be blown up when they move again. And even if they move too early, you've got the whole area around them mined, right?
I say AT mines are above all offensive weapons.
IRL, german troops used tellermines offensivly, using the handle to fling them like frisbees underneath the tracks of enemy tanks, or after arming them like charges, on to the top of the tank, to blast the shit out of the engine block. If they had enough time, they'd slide them under the turret overhang, effetively blowing the turret ring and blasting the turret off the tank.
Murda was the case that they gave me.
FU, um, Herr Oberst<__
If there is a piece of armor in your grill, get the fuck out. It's simple really. If you'd just do what you'd do in real life you'd get along much better in this game. This is the second post I've read from you tonight digging on the tanks in FH2 for being overwhelming to infantry (ie you.) The weapons you suggest to counter armor aren't available. On both sides several anti-tank weapons are a little undercooked. WW2 hadn't shown its hand yet by this time and both sides were learning what they're up against, so many weapons are yet to be improved upon or manufactured. Which means???!!!!!! YES IN FUTURE THEATRES this will be addressed!!!! :beer: Good news for you huh? Bad news for Panzer commanders like me. I look forward to future threads from you perhaps detailing the difficulties of the Allies casually walking up Omaha Beach or how unfairly outmatched the Sherman is against the King Tiger. Alles Gute...
