The HORN is back!

Now you can be the idiot driving through the battlefield in a jeep, honking the horn at everything, for no reason. In other words, battlefield 3 just got better.

I'm sure it was at the very top of their list of priorities too.

Hey, remember when I said Battlefield 3 just didn't grab me? It was because of the lack of the horn. Now I am back in.

Battlefield 3: Close Quarters will include four maps focusing on up close and personal infantry combat, and it'll release in June with one week's PS3 exclusivity.

Battlefield 3: Armoured Kill, a vehicle-focused pack which will include new vehicles and big open maps, including "the biggest DICE has ever built."

Battlefield 3: End Game, which is supposedly so secret that "only a few people in Stockholm know about it," according to the developer... ... .. .

These packs will include new weapons, Achievements / Trophies and/or vehicles.

Horn is weak as fuck, it needs a stat boost immediately!

I'm not joking, it's really quiet in the audio mix, i can't hear it beep while driving.

You say that like you're joking but I seriously did not enjoy the lack of BEEP BEEP.

Mike Horn is the only horn that really matters in BF3. Get back on, gpbmike!
 
@Mikemcn
You're right about the audio levels. Same for teammates calling for health, ammo, or a ride. What's the point of updating the commo rose if it's still too quiet for anybody to hear it? Everybody who really knew what they were doing has left DICE and it shows.

My uncle's friend has a solid position at DICE and he told me that it actually focuses around Nazi Dinosaurs. It's basically 1942, except you can drop rapters out of the B-52's instead of bombs.

Fuck yeah, horns. Honestly I am going to start playing again because of horns.

@Mikemcn: I was semi-joking. I had the horn button down ALL THE TIME in BC2.

... I had forgotten that this was added in the new patch. Started a round, teammate jumped in a jeep, and I started to run off...

BEEP BEEP.

Huge grin on my face, you better believe I ran back.
