Bad Company 2 thread. From outta nowhere! I got the game off the winter sale thinking I was gonna refund it once I found out it was dead but no, eight active servers at all time. Kinda regret not picking up Vietnam. It feels different than when I played it on console (better, especially after you fix it up).
Why is this game so much fun, anons?
G2A probably has the addon for like $5.
I probably still have this installed.
For some reason Vietnam servers can sometimes show up in the server browser. I end up playing Vietnam about once or twice a week because of it.
Good shit and I don't have to pay a cent.
>Why is this game so much fun, anons?
Actual building destruction can result in the map looking completely different, and I find this a very cinematic and fun game to immerse yourself in
>you're the only one using smoke on Rush
It's fucking crazy how little smoke is used in Rush. I even like using it in Conquest when I'm feeling lazy
>sit back in spawn with ammo container
>spam whole map with smoke
>spam popular sniping spots with smoke
The gameplay of BC2 was something incredible, the later editions while not bad games, have not replicated the fun of bc2. Devs have admitted not understanding why its good and they don't perceive it as a good battlefield game.
For BF4 depends on the map. Urban maps get minor destruction like walls and windows while the open maps get a similar level to BC2 or even more in some cases because of the terrain deformation that they could get to work in BF3.
This. Dice doesn't get it because they think that as long as they keep adding content that's all people want. In reality it's quality that matters. BC2 has many flaws, but the game is fun and while the weapon and map variety is no where near as big as 3 or 4, every weapon feels like it has a use, and almost all the maps are well designed.
Yeah it was the same with the spas12, 870, and Neostead. So i guess i should take that bit back. That said i bet if you asked people today, you would still have people claim one is better then the others.
CoD4 > BC2
it has some of the best sound design of any game around. and unless you used a real home theater surround sound you wouldnt understand
>hearing the echos of soldiers yelling in the distance on a quiet snowy night
>being able to identify every gun just by sound
>rattling windows from the napalm sound on hill 137 1st stage rush
it sucks that basically all of the servers left on pc are just 24/7 faggot map and 100,000,000 ticket fuckfests. the game was fucking amazing on the 360 but with no server browser it is painful to find a game worth playing now
The more I bump the thread the more BC2 shitters can read my posts, so it's OK. I guess camping in a building in some far off corner of the map with a sniper rifle is enjoyable for people with shit reflexes.
Hot opinions there, friendo
>pushing back to Russian deployment in Conquest and having forest battles full of explosions and smoke
Get some ingenuity
Me and a buddy of mine used to play the fuck out of this. We were pretty good at it too. Good times. Played 3 a bit as well. Can't quite say why, but I never felt like it was nearly as fun. Never got into 4 at all.
>People have different play styles and the game accommodates for it? What a shame?
Do all play styles create an equally enjoyable multiplayer experience? Of course not.
Do you have more fun when 3 guys are peaking you from 3 close/mid range and you're snapping to each one as you isolate angles, or when you're getting tagged by a sniper in a building far, far away, forcing you to take cover behind a rock and wait for a teammate to take them out?
>or when you're getting tagged by a sniper in a building far, far away, forcing you to take cover behind a rock and wait for a teammate to take them out?
Or moving between buildings to different objective points using smoke grenades to cover up sniper spots and my advance?
Is your entire hate towards BC2 based on hating snipers and campers?
>Wait for a teammate to take them out
I always liked the M60 lmg. Thing was stupid accurate. Wasn't it like broken or something for awhile and would seemingly grow more accurate the longer you held the trigger down?
>Or moving between buildings to different objective points using smoke grenades to cover up sniper spots and my advance?
Sit there in the building waiting for your smokes to resupply so that you can cover the literal dozens of angles that snipers can pick you from. Yea, no.
>Is your entire hate towards BC2 based on hating snipers and campers?
No. Snipers are OK in games like CoD4 or CS. It's really the huge maps with multi-story buildings that make them an annoyance in BC2.
If he's not a dumbass he's not gonna let you pick him off with an AR.
Best infantry combat
Great maps, don't remember the others enough to say BC2 has the best, but they are great
Guns feel different and good
Shit is actually destructible
I've never seen smoke not work, yet so few people actually use it, even now.
> It's really the huge maps with multi-story buildings that make them an annoyance in BC2.
Multi-story buildings, huh
So you never played the game
I'm going to bed. Enjoy your shitty movement+maps+boring vehicles.
>implying there aren't a FUCK TON of multistory buildings in BC2 maps
Seriously? No wait, your reaction pic means you're definitely trolling.
>Sit there in the building waiting for your smokes to resupply so that you can cover the literal dozens of angles that snipers can pick you from
It's called moving you dingus.
>Need to cross a street covered by snipers? Smoke the street and move across
>Getting shot up from a building across the map?
Smoke the building and run to where you need to go
>Snipers are OK in games like CoD4 or CS
So games where snipers can't actually be snipers?
It sounds like you just have the wrong mindset for BC2 and it's not your kind of game. That doesn't make it bad you dingus
>implying alot of them weren't
Tbh though alot of times I feel like I could take them out when they were probably scoped in on/looking for any number of my team mates, of course some were just bad and would miss shots. Furthermore a lot of those ass holes liked to go back to where they just got killed so you could just keep fucking them over. Cant count how many times I would get a sniper so flustered that he would literally switch classes to just try and get me
I'm not the guy you were arguing with, I'm just calling you a retard for implying he's never played the game because you don't know that a building with a flight of stairs counts as "multi-story".
Have fun when the game locks you out of the account with EA that your forced to make, telling you to input your serial key again then refusing to accept it since it's already in use. By you.
>lol u mad? Go to bed, man. We know you're a kid.
A kid is someone who can't realize people have different things they consider fun, kiddo
>m.. muh point n click sniping is more hardcore than your point n click sniping
I never said CS:GO wasn't fun. I said that you don't call what sniping is considered in that game sniping. Its not.
I like CS: GO. Its an arena shooter. It feels good. Its based on reflex and predictability.
But you don't snipe in that game. Stop pretending it is.
Whatever you say, buddy. Keep giving CS:GO players a bad reputation.
I haven't played this game in years, lots of good memories though. I should get it on Steam and try it out again.
Assault: F2000 Assault
Engineer: XM8 Compact
Medic: M249 SAW
Recon: SPAS-12 (no slugs)

What is it about War Tapes that gives me an erection?
Ah that's shitty. I wish more games would do like Supreme Commander and utilize the second monitor as a kind of minimap/readout
I never put much time in on PC, and I remember me sucking shit. But man did I have fun.
We should set up a group on steam or something. Not something too circle jerk over just something to set up play times.
AWOLGAMER server has been a consistent A+ for me. It's hardcore conquest if that's your thing
>the only low ping rush server is in Hueland
Wasn't Hardline more similar to Bad company than BF?
Tfw hype as fuck for bf3.
play Operation metro and that map with the narrow pass through the mountain.
Wtf is this shit. Uninstall. Much dissapoint.
Got the hunger and bought bf4 in recent sale. Its actually decent if you avoid the shit maps.
>it sucks that basically all of the servers left on pc are just 24/7 faggot map and 100,000,000 ticket fuckfests
Have you played recently? There's about two regular rush rotation servers going around all the time and occasionally a conquest rotation server or two.
And the odd squad dm server for some reason.
I had the filter on conquest only. Rush rotations are still up as normal
This was from earlier. I forgot that the winter sale had it for cheap and wondered what the huge explosion was for
