ima tell you, BF3 is an adjustment for me, started out with POS Rifles in Assault mode, finally unlocked some add-ons for them got better, but every map Im still constantly getting sniped, on the large servers/maps, there's snipers everywhere.
my brother and I played Karkland for hours the other day, we had Voice Comms and one other person in our squad did as well.
we spawned on each other and stayed in a group, brother already had been rapidly unlocking stuff in engineer class so he had stingers and crap, we were running around the map hiding and taking out tanks, my brother shooting stingers while i was assault w/ health packs and the other guy with ammo packs. That was the only round where i didnt end up dying 30 times.
most of the time I get sniped, spawn, take 2 steps and either get sniped again, or blasted with another weapon. I started only spawning on squad members eventually.
i'd have rounds where i start out 10-2, only to finish 14 and 25-30, because people bail in the middle of the game and the teams turn to crap.
I understand a snipers job is to support from cover, but when everyone else is dead and there are no spawns left, that kinda means to get up off your a... and do something, countless rounds were lost because an entire squad were snipers on a roof together sniping away, even as the tickets started dropping quickly, only caring about the K:D ratio as they whined everytime they died "ahh, why didnt someone tell us a guy was coming up the ladder you guys suck at team work", lol im not gonna sit and baby sit an entire squad. then when we all die they sit on the roof and snipe away, the other team eventually starts #%&*$# when there is no one left but those 4 snipers hiding.
on wake island they have snipers set camp on the edges of the 2 spawns on the tips of the island, seriously....
I refuse to touch the Jets, Helicopters I'll fly like no tomorrow with my HOTAS, but the jets are a joke, always have been, always will.
