this is pretty helpful, i never thought of tactically swapping gear with the deceased.

I'm fairly sure this is qualified as youtube spam under the forum rules, I'd suggest avoiding that.

"As assault, stay behind your teammates and throw medkits at them" is a terrible fucking advice.

Actually it's pretty good as a general rule. I wouldn't recommend doing it all the time - especially on the larger vehicle maps - but on Seine or Metro it can really benefit the team. Having someone in the rear with the gear is good for both keeping team mates alive and covering a flanking approach from the enemy.

The alternative (read: popular) approach is to stomp over your team mates, not reviving any of them, and try to COD your way through the enemy team; this is not as effective.

Does this have the official "Gary Whitta Approved Game Advice"-Certificate?

Battlefield 3 is really amazing guys. At first I had trouble getting into it because the unlocks took forever and there were so many games out, but once I had more time to put in I'm having a hell of a time.

It feels a lot like a hyper refined Bad Company 2 which is another game I put hundreds of hours into. DICE really nailed it on this one; on PC and consoles. (not the campaign though, still waiting on Bad Company 3 if that happens)

Don't play Recon ever. Heal/revive your team. Repair/destroy vehicles. Give out ammo.

All obvious? You'd think wouldn't you.

Did Bad Company 2 sell millions? Yes? BC3 2013

@AhmadMetallic: did BF3 sell more? Yes? BF4 2013

I think that the success and popularity of BF3 will make it so there will be a BF4 before a BC3.

@Frenchie108: there's been a tradition of the past numbered Battlefield entries (1942 and 2) where DICE would release spinoffs of their game (on PC at least).

After Battlefield 1942 came Vietnam

After Battlefield 2 came 2142

I'm crossing my fingers that DICE chooses some sort of crazy setting again for their next entry (I hope it's 2142!) and throw in the dudes from the Bad Company games. This was mentioned in the GB podcast recently and I was nodding my head feverishly.

@Liber: It's fucking solid advice.

It's how I got this.

Easing back from the firefighting gives you a better chance of healing and reviving. You can also watch the flanks and spot for teammates while you're at it.

@Feikken: Battlefield 2142 with BC characters would be sick

also, i realized i didn't comment on the video itself. I think that it was extremely well done with just the right amount of humor. It also gave plenty of useful information unlike other guides (I'm looking at you ign). Great work!
