a random BF2 challenge

Unread postby sunash » 02 Nov 2008 21:36

hey there all!
as the sub says, a challenge to all those bf2 players who are up for it. Been contemplating it over for a long time...
One thing since I've joined this clan that I feel has improved my my BF2 gameplay is not using any unlocks, suggested to me a long time ago by smiley. Playing on a with a wireless connection on a laptop is hard but after dealing with that I started to get bored, so took up smiley's suggestion and have stopped using unlocks during BF2. So here is the challenge: Not to use any unlocks. Its up to each individual to how long they want to do it for, a week, month or maybe even indefinately. It'll definately improve your skills. I personally found the SAW and SVD hard to get used to, but its all good fun.

Personally I think it should be a prerequisite for being in clan league at the least!

Bugs me no end getting killed by a clan member using a G36! (that's me though, easily bugged!)

It's a good challenge to set down in writing. I only play medic or AT really and all the stock guns are pretty good for those kits (even the type-85).....in fact every default gun is good apart from the SAW...but then again i can barely use the MG36/PKM/RPK so i'm probably not a good judge of support guns. I think the problem is that most people who still use unlocks believe that they are better guns just because they are unlocks.

In my noob days i always used to use the DAO-12 and the L85, thinking that they were 'better'. But now i dislike those guns and try and offload them whenever i pick them up/revived with them. It just takes time to learn how to use the default guns. Personally i play best with the AK-101 & AK-47....instant death with a headshot and no more than 3 or 4 rounds to kill any enemy soldier :D

I play more and more 'infantry only' these days and i'm getting increasingly wound up when i get killed by the G36E.....especially when its used by 3 star generals (most of whom only achived that rank by being vehicle/G36E whores). That said when i pick up a G36E it's like a birthday present and its fun to see how many people you can take down before you get killed.

Oh and the best thing about using default guns is that it makes the game soooooo much more interesting. It actually matters when you change sides because all the guns are different. Wheras when you just use the same unlocks all the time the rounds/games just blur into one.

Good points well made, especially the observation made by topchaz. Swapping sides and using different default weapons does make the game that more challenging. I too find the SAW a bit hard to use. In real life I think its meant to be a pretty mean weapon, but in BF2 you can use a whole clip and hope you've just scratched your enemy.

In my opinion it depends on the situation... The default weapons are very good in most situation but unlocks better in other situation... For an example when I defend or attack the TV station on Sharqi I prefer to use the DAO-12 only inside the TV station because a semi automatic shotgun in close quaters is a very powerful thing and I use the MP5 and P90 for medium and long range combat.
Now for the medic... the M16 is a very universal weapon but it has it's limitations... It's not very accurate at long range and it has only burst and single shot modes but the L85 is very accurate in single shot mode and at long range...
The support... The MG36 is the most accurate than the M249 SAW and the PKM and has a burst modes witch helps for the accuracy so for long range this is the best... The PKM does the highest damage but it has the lowest accuracy so for close combat this is best...

Well this is my opinion but I don't have much experience as you guys so I might be in error for this...

Since I'm only ever a sniper, AT or medic I have no problems since I hate most of the unlocks for them anyway.

American stock gun is all you need for long range, SVD and chinese things are good if you can shoot straight.

As for Medic, the AK guns are lethal. And I love mah M16. He's called Bob.

And AT? Who uses the bullet gun when playing as AT?

What d'you think that rocket launcher's for? Repairing piping?

Brilliant quote, made me laugh. He has a very good point. The guns are fairly accurate but do very little damage. More and more i'm using the rockets to take on infantry...especially easy when they go prone (don't say it smiley) coz you cant miss.

I only ever use the medic unlocks as they apply in clan matchs, although every other kit i prefer to use at my disgression, I enjoy selecting different guns from time to time, the l96a1 for sniping, the pkm for support or the mp7 for engi, it takes a part of the game away if you dont.. Although now i very rarely scope with AT, the movement on the rocket u can get without scope is amazing! it takes a little while to get used to. BUT!! tanks get no warning klaxon to say there locked, so that takes a part of their defensive capabilitys away.. and choppers and jets have no hope !! 8)
