I cannot get enough dog tags in multiplayer. I don't know what it is, but if I see someone nearby, I will risk my life to go knife him and get his dog tags. I'm rank 3 and have 50 dog tags. Not much, but I'm working my way up. Who else loves these, and how many do you have?
My frothing obsession for dog tags
" Just wondering, do the dogtags collected in BC1 carry over? I suspect they do, because there's no way I've already knifed 70 people (I knife maybe 1 person every 4 games). "Have you played the BC2 demo? Because the dog tags from there carry over to the retail version.
Anyway I also love getting dog tags. I'm about level 10 and have 73 unique dog tags.
Me and my mates have an obsession with getting each others' Dog Tags. If I get one of theirs they will stop at nothing and sneak around the whole map not shooting anyone in fear of giving away their position to get me. It makes for pretty hilarious group chat. Love the game.
It's just bad how much I gotta have them...I'd die maybe half as often as I do if I didn't try to get those damn tags. Usually I wait until the match is about half over and then I go around the outskirts of the map and start knifing any snipers that might be camping on a hill or in the bushes. Sometimes though, I get spotted and instead of shooting I pull a Patrick Bateman and just fucking charge in there with my knife. I tend to get gunned down when that happens though lol.
don't have a ton, still trying to get some stats up, i will probably resort to playing games with all knife kills, or various other gimmicks i can come up with to try and make things interesting down the road :P
the knife kills are the most savage and disrespectful kills in the game and yes.... that's why we all love them.
As for the OP, can't say I care too much about them. If it makes more sense to kill someone with my gun, then I'll do that.
I find it so hard to knife, I often have a stab perfectly lined up and then some shit happens like the dude crouching, leaving me stuck with the animation hitting the air. I've got something like 5 or 10 tags this far at rank 2. I mostly snipe though so I don't really get many opportunities.
" @Gspoon said:Ok I thought we were talking about just knifing fools. I wasn't thinking about dog tags.Brain fart lol" @ch13696 said:Fixed it for you, 2142 was the first game to have dog tags. "" I suggested that everyone play what started it all. Battlefield 1942. "fixed it for you "
@Jayross: It is absolutely the best word lol...Sometimes if I see someone 20 feet away with their back to me I will sprint across the open field for them, ignoring all reason. I got up in the neighborhood of 80-90 tags tonight.
@Cheapoz: The long animation is why I like it, actually. It's the risk-reward system that makes it so great. True, the lag sucks, but the thrill of flanking a sniper and hoping he doesn't turn around has given me my most exciting moments in the game. That's part of why I love the whole system so much.
Tonight, I came across a group of 6 enemy players or so in a tight little bunch. I ran in a knifed 4 of them before the first one I got respawned and killed me. I don't think the other knew what was going on haha.
I knifed three guys in a row the other day, and the last one had silver dog tags. Three medics had my squad pinned down, 2 were firing and one was healing. I flank them while my squad draws their attention. Knife the healer as he turns to face me, then put it in the back of both of the other guys necks as they continue to shoot, unaware of my presence.
I've knifed a lot of dudes online in my days, but this particular instance was special.
