Of course players are going to have different preferences for weapons. Those are purely stat based and number crunching rankings. In a perfect world, those would be the best weapons. However, as we all know, BF is far from perfect and there are a myriad of other factors to take into consideration.

Personally, my favorite weapon is the Bren. You can just hold LMB and kill anything at range. It's a laser beam. The funny part is they even nerfed it and it's still ridiculous. It does have one of the slower TTK because it only has a 514 rpm, making it one of the slowest full auto weapons. However, when you can hit every shot because of how accurate it is, it more than makes up for it.

The funny part was I used to talk shit about the Bren. Why would anyone use this over the Lewis or KE7? Easy, when you have a laser, why use a gun.

Bren + 3x scope, it might as well be a 30 round sniper rifle.

What weird keybinds have people come up with for this game? (since it lets you have multiple and conflicting binds)

I have...

Scroll up - toggle crouch, lets me slide with ease and is actually very comfy.

1 - main weapon AND choose firemode. Switches firemode if pressed when weapon is equipped. Feels very natural and I think it's because that's how it is in Delta Force. :D

I must say I disagree with the con tromponcino.
I’ve been having very good games with it.
They complain about maps not being suited for SMGs due to ranges in the earlier part, so it's a bit strange but not when you take into account their method and flippant attitude.

I love the trombone on Hamada. I can consistently topfrag with it on most maps but it is not as easy as it is with SMGs, though on Hamada and Panzerstorm it's a no-brainer. It's very fun to have the anti-vehicle option as well.

I don't think I'm good enough to really care about the tight metagame of weapon tiers. Or I just don't care enough, haha. I've said it a thousand times, but I've always forced myself to "make my own fun" pretty much in games like Battlefield, and constantly swap weapons in and out even if they're technically the absolute worst of their category. I like challenging myself to git gud with everything. Even the garbage.

The Boys AT rifle is, I think, the only gun I've got a hate/hate relationship with. I still think it's a bullshit lazy gun that should be reserved to gadget use instead. Just an awful boring lazy way to play scout, unsatisfying to use, uninspiring to get killed by, and yeah. It doesn't even seem to be useful against vehicles anyway.

They nerfed the Bren? Sure doesn’t feel like it :)


I also think there is a difference between console and PC.
The prone OHK snipers isn’t a issue for me on console for example.

Sometimes there is a delay until it shows up for purchase with CC. I would check back next week.
Suffer for not accomplishing the feats of war!

This week's XP payout is garbage, it is almost like they want to starve you off XP to open the wallet for the remaining levels. OR... some tasks were related to Al Sudan so they just chopped them off.
RIP will check again later. I mean its not that good.. right?! who would use an mmg haha...

Enemy Hit 125 Damage. Soldier still alive. Repeat 10x a game.

Tank hit 150 damage. Tank still alive.

Great game DICE.

Are they not tracking at all or just not tracking at the end of round screen?

Assignments haven't been updating properly on the end game/end round screens for a while now. If you exit to the main menu though you'll see they tracked or are complete.

If they are not tracking in-game then that is new.
Not tracking at all iirc. I waited till the end of round screen to confirm it. Ps4 btw.

Welp, guess i'm waiting for the next patch. It's not like the face paint had any interest either way.

Tracking lagging in PC, but my heroism for reviving squad-mates into a certain death was recognized!

Tank damage can be repaired, and sometimes you get extra-points for hitting the tanks in the nuts or splash damage to soldiers around the tank, so the combined 150 points can be easily not enough to kill the tank. Remove crits, remove splash, account for +30 instant repair and if there is an extra support fixing the tank, it needs a coordinated fire to explode.

Haven’t played for a while but have recently jumped back in with some friends. Did the latest patch make the game even more buggy? I don’t remember it being this bad!

Anyway, I’ll probably continue to play on and off as I have since it launched. Hopefully the content drops aren’t meant with more issues.

I get the tank damage can go over 100, but soldier damage going up to 150 when I’m blasting them with automatic fire? No way a med kit and heal that fast.

Makes you wonder what happen in the development process. And speculate about the rumors that bfv got pushed out a year early because bc3 got a deal or whatever for next gen consoles.
