There it is:
W - Forward
A - strafe Left
D - Strafe Right
S - Backward

E - Enter Vehicle | Arm/Disarm MCOM
R - Pickup Weapon
T - Turn on/off flashlight/pointer
Q - Spot Enemy
Z - Prone
Ctrl - Crouch
x - Hold crouch
f - Quick knife
G - Grenade
1 - 6 - Weapon selection
f1 - f6 - Seat Selection
C - External view in vehicle
M - Minimap
TAB- Scoreboard
Esc - Menu
Enter - Spawn Menu

Many thanks

What's toggle fire mode then?

Think it might be "V" actually after looking online

How is the spot system? Can you see the 'spot' through objects?

Well some things I found. First shooting is fun. When you shoot people die. no clicklicklicky no pling sound. No shooting for unnatural amounts of time. bullets go in and they go down. Its more then one hit but for the amount of time it takes it doesn't feel unnatural. This might change though. It usually happens in betas guns are rebalanced. I wish the load out screen could have been more like bc2. Its controls have changed and I find it awkward to navigate. Fortunately this isnt need often. Theres a weird thing that happens when the left stick is pegged and it would register when you try to run. So WASD you have to release W for split sec and then run. It just seems like a glitch though. The game looks good. Still I think crysis 2 is a better engine. The audio in this game is awesome. I have not heard a game that sounds this good in just plain unprocessed stereo in a long time. Sound positioning is great. Its very easy to tell where something is coming from. Voice is not limited to squads.

No its nothing like the BC2. The icon is tiny...way above their head and disappears very quickly and doesn't track though anything really.

how hard of a time are you guys having getting your friends in a squad?
Don't put down the bottle... just tape it to the back of the shield and put a straw in it.  WIN!

Forget Operation Métro and anything you've seen in it so far.

I just played Caspian Boarder - Conquest 64 man server and my gawd this is pure win. Youtube "Caspian Border Beta" if you're not on the PC beta. There are limited amount of Caspian servers that is password protected but z1hnt0 (Dice community manager) posted the password on his twitter.

The map is massive. The graphics as a whole was truly amazing considering it's scale. The lighting was bright and crisp. Looking into the sun was realistically blinding. The details where beyond expectations after playing Metro.

64-man Caspian Border Beta has cast away any doubt that Operation Métro has placed on me of BF3. I was having BF2 nostalgia.(Never liked the BC series)

Anyone with the PC beta, hit me up.
