On xbox 360 I rename this game to pronefield 3... Or campfield 3. Its fun but I dont always feel like camping.
+1

I'm really really trying to like this game.
but so far it's just aggravating. trying to get my friends in the same squad is a crapshoot at best and most of the time I can't even see my enemies. and yes, I've adjusted my contrast/brightness on my tv as well as in-game.

i don't seem to have a problem - maybe you're playing with the wrong group :D  cap, arjunng, myself, brian8dee88 we all had a great time the other night and last night as well.  just gotta get in there with friends :D  (p.s. they're working on the squad system - high priority)

beez--- that's good news, thanks...

hey, regarding video settings, what do you guys have brightness at? I've tried barely seeing the 3 on the screen to having it very bright. nothing seems to work well for me, just isn't much contrast between enemies and background.

I just set mine where i could barely see it and haven't moved it at all. Guess i just got use to it. I don't have a problem seeing them. I mean, i do get killed some where i didnt see the guy but i guess thats normal

yeah the IR is almost unfair on some maps, takes some time to unlock it but once you got it make sure to give it a try

im not sure how its done on the console, but on pc for most classes (except supply) the very best weapon needs to be unlocked by playing Co-Op
eg the G3 needs about 440000 overall Co-Op score to be unlocked for the matchmaking multiplayer

the good thing is, those Co-Op weapons can already be tried out in the campaign, so you can kinda estimate if its worth it to invest the time
easiest and fastest points can be made by playing either the second or the last Co-Op mission on the hardest difficulty


also things you might check out:

this portable mortar station from the supply class
never tried it on my own, but heard its extremly strong and unfair
(ea already confirmed to nerve it soon, so better use it now than later ;) )

.44 magnum gun, its a 2-3 shot kill even on longer ranges in normal mode
the guy who manages to aim precisely with it in ads has found a new primary weapon ;)

Are there any campaign unlocks? I really like the A-91 by the way it's a powerful gun.

you cannot unlock those weapons by playing the single player campaign, only co op campaign will work

the a-91 is a regular multiplayer unlock weapon for the engineer i think
you can view the co-op unlock weapons on the battlelog homepage

I agree the Co-op unlocks are worthwhile weapons. The added plus is the fun factor compared to the campaign. I didn't mind doing the last mission countless times over.

I'm not sure if the difficulty has a factor on points. I didn't seem to notice a difference from easy to hard.

can you play the co-op alone?  I know that's a bit counter-intuitive.

No, online only. It's either with a friend or public random.

Oh good you can play with a random.  I've not had any luck hooking up with friends yet.

The game does feel campy to me.... Still a great game though... I kinda attribute it to ppl being new to it though and everyone wanting tp snipe. Also a lot of my xbl crew are in defferent parts of the country so I dont get to play on my east coast servers much.... But when I do I feel like my hit detection all of a sudden becomes godly.
     My crew is good but ive had a few games where its just super boring on conquest like triple cap and then the other team doesnt even try to come out of spawn for the remainder of the game.... I just get so impatient.
     Also levelling up and learning the vehicles is annoying but I feel has to be done at this juncture for domination in the future this also takes a toll on my enjoyment of the game and w/l ratio.
    Dont get me wrong I think the game is great it just makes me wonder about some of the ppl playing it.
    Also in the beta it was very gun on gun and I knew the map so well it was very easy to dominate for me. So every now and then I like to pop into tdm and pad my kd. Even though most of my friends hate tdm in this game it works well if you are forced to roll solo.
Ice... 15ml lime cordial... 1 dash angostura bitters... 2 oz 100% agave tequila... top off with sprite or 7 up

I drew a picture about my issue with Battlefield 3 on Xbox 360:

Does anyone know the exact reason of this happening almost everytime when I try to avoid enemy fire by running into cover?

Yeah, this was present in the beta as well, it seems there was some sync issues(lag?). On the enemy's screen he has shot you and killed you before you made it to cover, your screen will reproduce that scenario but a second later hence you dying behind cover. This would happen to me only when I ran. It might be server side issue.
