It seems when ever i try and use them i can't for the life of me, ever hit anything. Is there like a certain area the aimer should be? like 5 cms away from the target or something?

Hmmmm....I don't know how I should answer you question, except for: Set up a LAN server and practice! :) I use the mortar whenever I have the opertunity, and I like it. I tested it out on my own server to see how it worked, and practice. Good luck! ;)

The only thing ive succesfully killed with a mortar is the defgun on Iwo Jima shooting at the hilltop. And with the kneemortar i once used it to kamikazi a GI hiding in a building. But thats about it.. mortars are really ineffective for some reason, and in my experience.

It takes massive practice. It's a touchy weapon and not easy to target. There is a mortor in the Village on Operation Nordwind that when you enter it you can see over the fence but they cannot see you. Sometimes tanks will sit out there and shot in thinking they are in the free and clear. If you drop a mortor on a tank it's a gonner. Just practice.

I've used knee mortars to at least a marginal effect on Wake where the enemy's line of advance is pretty much funneled. I seem to spontaneously use them when we need to attack uphill... like in Saipan.

I grabbed the mortar kit on Kharkov, after we capped all the points. I sat on the side of the hill out of their range of site and sat there for about 10 minutes practicing my aim and pounding them senseless. The aim is pretty touchy but if you get it right its worth it. Got about 15 kills from that mortar and no deaths.

LOL, now that i want to see. Mortars are effective at suppressing flags. I use them on GoldBeach. However i admit i didn't give it much attention. I did however see experienced players user mortars to take out Tigers and Jagdpathers on Nordwind.... in 1 shot! that was awsome :nodding:

The hardest problem with setting a mortor is droping it on level ground.

Yeh same for me. And you can't drop it on any objects like in a ruined building... it just falls through and lands on the earth.
