  3. Could use some advice/tips
2 years ago#1
Just recently picked up the game and I've enjoyed it so far, but my friends and I could use some advice on how to deal with vehicles, we primarily play rush or conquest and do really well on the infantry heavy maps. However, the vehicles, primarily tanks and jets kick our butt. When we possible we ignore them and move on to our objectives but this isn't always feasible. Jets especially prove quite resilient to our barrages of stingers with their pesky flares. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

Don't waste your time shooting stingers at jets.

Try using the javelin with a soflam. Other wise you'll have to count on the jet pilots on your team to take care of enemy jets.

The only counter to jets is an AA or another jet.

As far as the tanks are concerned:

-Use a tank yourself.
-Engineer and shoot rockets at it, also don't underestimate AT mines in smart locations.
-Support and try to C4 it.
-Helicopter if you feel you can manage it.

If possible, have some frag rounds or a sniper rifle ready in case your support dies before they blow the 4

Just use a grenade or rocket for this. No need to hinder yourself with useless weapons for a very rare scenario.

Tanks are weak from the back and 90 degrees to the side. Start firing rockets up it's pooper and it should go down pretty fast. Just ignore jets. They aren't any real threat.

Yes and no. If you have rockets, you don't need to wait for that support, and there's a good chance the tank will just move away from the grenade. Also, while frag rounds aren't good for some random running around like a maniac, they do have their uses in a squad that sticks together. Sniper rifles are excellent weapons if you can actually aim with them, and even if you're not a great shot, you could just take a semi-auto and put a holo scope on it.

When i use c4 i suicide probably 75% of the time. I dont care much about kd and i know taking the tank out is more important than my death.
