You understand me on a level nobody else does.

That was one of my first thoughts about both of these gadgets.

I don't know about the flying suit, but the grappling hook was cool. BF2: Special Forces was a good expansion.

Got my eyes on this baby if I can swallow the $2.4k price, for a 3070 and all that jazz.

Shinjobi how much did you drop?

Honestly that's about what I paid. If I could go back and change anything, I'd have paid a little extra for a chunkier rig. It runs just dandy but it can get a little loud sometimes.

I love the extra mobility options. I especially love mobility options that help me murder rooftop camping snipers and engineers.

I just yesterday played a bit of BF4 and did the mistake of trying to play a Tank on Siege of Shanghai. The amount of rooftop engineers I can't do squat against is INSANE.

I had to hide in the display area on AI with my tank just to not have permanent rockets flying in my direction.

Bleh, I tried to enjoy V, I really did, but I couldn't. Especially not after whatever lobotomy patient was in charge decided "Nah, TTK is too low, I'm gonna just arbitrarily gently caress with all the numbers." That event really killed what fun was left.

Now despite being burned so badly by V I'm trying to fight the hype at least enough to hold out until I hear the reports from the first beta.

Well, you can equip any gun now.

Also this doesn't seem actually have had that much new information as far as I can tell, other than the thing I spoilered above.

I feel like both the best and worst experiences from Battlefield come from one point turning into a meatgrinder of people just piling in from every direction and while it usually turns out fun more often than frustrating I don't know why people enjoy subjecting themselves to like thirty minutes straight of "Walk around corner, shoot one man, eat grenade."

I actually thought Locker (Conquest) was pretty okay but only when both teams remember the cliff path exists and that it is perfectly okay to use mortars/UCAVs/XM25 airbursts. I wouldn't want to play it too regularly because even getting to that point is a challenge but it can be fun when you get the rare combination of people. The XM25 airburst indoors on locker was also really fun when you know how to use it. Set the laser on the wall in front of a doorway or window and then fire through the gap and watch everyone scatter or die.

I have a 2070 Super but I guess these days my best option might be biting the bullet and buying a premade system with a 3080 in it since the cards are running like $3000 on amazon anyway.

Metro is so loving great, man. I remember in bf3 popping off a m320 round down the locker hallway and getting 8 kills at once or something to the tune of 1000 points for one shot.

locker is just a maze with moving random killbox chokepoints and it's good mindless unlock grinding as long as you turn the volume down to non-deafening levels

Locker was fun as a palate cleanser every couple of maps but it sucked when every server ran the map vote plugin and it decided that every second vote had to include Locker as an option because I found playing it every second map was tiring.

I dont know what to call that type of game. Instanced raids? The only game that Im aware of thats similar to Tarkov is Hunt Showdown, but even then its not 1:1.

The only meaningful thing Tarkov and Hunt share with battle royales is that you get one life per match, there's literally no other comparison points.

That said I don't think anyone has argued for any particular name for whatever they are so :shrug:

They are nothing like BR's. Like what? There is no shrinking map, there can be many many survivors, and the win conditions are completely different. If something is a battle royal because there is permadeath (which in tarkov/hunt have totally different consequences) then your brain is severely deficient.

A tarkov-like without being tarkov would be amazing.

Tarkov is absolutely in the same vein of games as your standard battle royale titles. Solo or Small squad, open world pvp survival, High stakes, loot based. It's a evolution of the formula but it's much more akin to PUBG than it is a looter shooter or a standard BF or COD MP. Hazard Zone sounds like an obvious grab at the Apex/Warzone/PUBG playerbase but I guess we'll find out on the 22nd.

There is a time and place for meatgrinders. I enjoyed metro mostly because, a) it was a lot of indoor metro environments which was cool (still like the idea of fighting in subways and stuff) and b) because you had basically constant action at all times since it was fairly linear and people weren't so spread out. Also, c) you didn't get poo poo on by air at all~

Speaking of the BF3 map, I dunno if there were other iterations
