Rocking BfBC2 on PC

Well, we sorta rocked Bad Company 2 on PC tonight. I’ve only ever played the game in short bursts because of my frustration with the keyboard controls but tonight I invested almost 3 hours in the game, the longest single session on the PC. I hooked up with TyeWebb and while I never rarely walked away with a positive KDR we played well. Not so bad when I don’t even have magnum ammo unlocked yet. *sob*

Hell, Tye and myself were the top two players on our team! Take that elitist PC snobs! The console players did well! πŸ˜‰

Of course, special mention must go to iKiltNOOBS, the level 50 who equipped explosive damage and fired 40mm grenades at random near contested flags. Way to go.

Bravo 2 Company FTW!

Paul posted the launch video for a new Battlefield clan, Bravo 2 Company, I’ve joined him in the clan and next time I fire up Bad Company 2 I’m changing my clan tag to B2C. Haven’t played an FPS in ages though, I’ve been too engrossed (and exhausted in the evenings) in Minecraft.

Check out the clan homepage where you can register and join up if the want!

Oooh, must listen to this tonight when iTunes updates. The “Don’t Revive Me Bro Podcast” #5 with StonefaceLock is now up. I’ve been so busy of late I haven’t got around to listening to the previous DRMB podcast yet. I’ve hardly looked at any Bad Company 2 gameplay videos either! *sob*

Apparently nobody uses the in-game team …

Apparently nobody uses the in-game team chat in Bad Company 2 on PC so lots of people use Mumble. Unfortunately that can have unforeseen consequences when both teams are on the same Mumble server…

Defender: Watch out guys, we have enemies in the back of our base
Attacker: …….no i’m not……

Next time I fire up the game on PC I’ll join that Mumble server and see for myself. (via)

A lot of Battlefield players are also on Twitter, here’s a few of them:

This is by no means an exhaustive list but if you play Bad Company 2 check out these guys and tell them Donncha sent you! Many of these people have Youtube channels too and I’ll add them later but in the meantime check out this list and of course dontrevivemebro.com.

Had some great games with David and Bedo…

Had some great games with David and Bedo Empire (Was that his username? I forget, sorry!) on Bad Company 2 last night.

Like others in the Bad Company 2 community we’re playing using our “secondary accounts” so we’re starting from scratch again. Problems with match making continue and the two of us were dumped into a game defending on Valparaiso against 2 level 50s and a level 42 player. It was 2 vs 3 and the result was never in doubt but hell, we put up a fight! I wish I was recording because we had lots of fun. Despite their high levels, they were rubbish helicopter pilots, just hovering in place. I got a nice rocket straight up into the vehicle without a tracer dart.

After David did a call out for help Empire joined us and on attack we took the first base quickly, and managed to get one crate on the second before the other team were joined by a clan of high level players. It was something like 3 vs 8 then so we went looking for another game.

Unfortunately stats weren’t recorded for our last game. I went 19/8 and we were the best squad despite having us low level players, without magnum ammo on the squad. I made it to level 1, unlocked a vehicle spec and a shotgun and they were all lost. Luckily the ammo box I unlocked in the previous game stayed but it’s disappointing. I couldn’t care less about losing stats on my main account because I’ve unlocked everything (but some of the recon weapons) but for raw recruits it’s hard. *sob*

I’m sorta liking the AEK now, even without magnum ammo.

Circle Strafing on Oasis

This is a preview of a Bad Company 2 gameplay video I’ll be uploading next week. I just wanted to show that it is possible for anyone to circle strafe in a helicopter. It just takes a bit of practice!

Thanks Killerbelf and Redd_dragons for getting in the helicopter with me, and to Muddledmuppet who joined us later!

I can circle strafe

How long is Bad Company 2 out? March last year isn’t it? Well, Gavin said he learned how to circle strafe the AH-64 and I decided to learn how too. With help from Geoff’s video above I figured it out.

Basically, point at where you want to circle around, press right on the left stick which will strafe to the right. Then with the right stick push left and up-down adjusting the nose to keep it centered on the target. The effect of pushing the right stick adjusts the rotar at the back of the helicopter, thus turning it. (I think that’s right, I need to spend more time in Onslaught perfecting it.)

Oh, full throttle the whole time too!

PBR Bug on Operation Hastings too

Coyno joined a game against cheaters using the PBR glitch to drive a boat under the map on Operation Hastings. So, not only Hill 137 then. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Bad Company 2 Oasis Helicopter Rage

This is 5 minutes out of a very long 49 minute Bad Company 2 game I played with Duck and DrunkinDunkin on one base on Oasis. I wasn’t in the helicopter, a player with over 6000 helicopter kills was piloting it and tore up our defenses. Thankfully the rest of his team weren’t so good. πŸ™‚

I’d love to hear if you have any tips for Oasis. It’s one map I really have rarely done well in. I think it was Cards or gt who tweeted that he gets on to the AA gun before any blueberries get there to take down any incoming helicopters. Could have done with your help in this game!

PS. Check out the first episode of DON’T REVIVE ME BRO! podcast!
