Are you flexible in the class you play ? Or do you always just play your class regardless of the game situation
Are you flexible in the class you play ?
I do change it up depending on the situation, though I'll usually be playing Engineer destroying vehicles and often just change if my team's class balance is severely unbalanced, otherwise I trust others to deal with things I can't. When I change to recon though, it's usually with a shotgun and C4 though since I can't snipe.
Nah, I switch constantly all the time, depending on whats going on on the map. Even switch class equipement depending on what I feel is needed as well as what I feel like playing.
Flexibility has served me well and won many a game. Relying on other people if you are not playing with people you know is asking for a loss.
Map dependent for me, and every class except recon. Just can't really get into sitting and watching and picking. And if I'm going stabbing on D or objective hunting on O then the other classes are better than a wookie w/a shotty or G3. I think I'll work on the Recon class versus AI whenever that onslaught mode drops; I need the 10 motion mines especially.
Yup. Being flexible is a must for good Battlefield players. If you stick to much to a single role, you will hinder your team. In fact, thats why you have a suicide option.
Its also something that you have to constantly change, depending on the map and objective.
The best players are the ones who master all the classes. I used to be oookay at BFBC1, never used the specialist EVER (I know, right, insane?). But then I decided "man, I should stop being a fool and try this junk out." -- Long story short, I had a K/D of around 2.1 on Specialist alone (versus my 1.6 average at the time). It's a good idea to switch up for whatever situation is thrown at you.
I find the classes that I use are good for almost all situations, hardcore and regular. Including rushing bomb sites, never underestimate the pistols :) my best friend when recon.
-Assault, G3, M9 pistol, C4, extra C4, Magnum ammo
-Recon, Rifle, M9 pistol, C4, 12x, Magnum ammo
The only thing I'm almost completely useless against is helicopters, so I usually rely on my team to deal with them.
Yeah totally depends on the situation, the map i'm playing on and the classes my squadmates are playing as. I prefer engineer and assault, and will switch classes depending on whats happening in the game. Usually if i'm playing with my friends we each pick a class so we can support each other.
I'd say so, but more often than not I'm Medic on Defense and Recon on Offense. Tagging targets and sniping is what I'm best at, so I end up falling back on it if there aren't already 10 snipers. It's kind of annoying now since I'm not unlocking anything for Recon or Vehicles.
