Let's gather together all the vid, guides and tuts about BF3 here!

General Tips
  • Spot enemies! Use Q or the select buttons to spot enemy players, if they're killed, you'll get a spot bonus worth ten points.

  • Resupply/Health Packs. Playing support? Drop ammo, even if you have full ammo, your team may need it, plus you'll earn points. Same with assault, drop health packs! You can earn up to 120 points, just from one squad member with a health pack.

  • Watch your mini-map! Spotted enemies, newly capped points, and objectives can be revealed.

  • Take out walls to reveal enemies.

  • Play the objective, capture bases, defend points, set charges.

  • Recon - set spawn beacons. Especially in hidden areas.

  • Tactical Lights and Lasers. They make it difficult for the enemy to know exactly where to shoot.

  • Don't have a bipod? Hold shift (left stick) to steady your aim while scoped.

  • IRNV! This scope allows you to see anything and allows you to see individual soldiers out to 500m! Works well in low-light and the bright daylight of Caspian Border.

  • Have a moment? Reload twice. After you blow through a clip and reload, you'll have thirty rounds ready to fire, but if you reload twice, one round is left in the chamber, plus another thirty, leaving you with 31. That last round could be the kill shot!


CLASSES


RECON
Recon Golden rules:
1. Spot
2. Spot as many people as possible from cover at long range, take 2 or 3 shots then MOVE. Your position is compromised.
3. Flank wide around the enemy to make yourself a suitable spawn point and using your radio beacon.
BUT what ever you do don't just take pot shots from the back of the map! Always have eyes on the objective and communicate to your squad. U are the eyes of the battlefield.

There is no such thing in Multiplayer. Point at a teammate who is Support class and spam the Q button.

Ammo crates only exist in Singleplayer and Co-op.

haha nice site, I'll have to get Jim with that because he drives me absolutely crazy with questions that he could easy Google, some people are so lazy even after owning a PC for years they still haven't grasped the whole searching and fixing problems themselves.

It is really annoying sometimes - (I understand that in this case, what you said was a joke CT), that people don't grasp the idea of international knowledge sharing.

And then again. People who know that they should use google also have problems. This illustrates quite well how it feels to work in a helpdesk sometimes.

Well as most might have noticed I play Recon class - silly name btw. its a sniper or marksman for the UK's.
The SOFLAM is worthless, IRL you can't see the laser even when you are the target, I know this for a fact hence I used it for real.
No one, I mean NO ONE, takes advantage of it when its used, Ive seen several snipers use it but noone drops anything on the designated target so only point you get as sniper is 10 for pointing it out.

The 7.62.51 mm sniperrifles are sooo not funny in this game, the balistic made by the swedes (read DICE) makes it a neccesity to make corrections above target at 100 meters .... I seriously hope that no swedes work for NASA, if so, Astronauts will be major fucked up. I took a potshot at a guy at 100 meters, I didnt kill him so he turned around and wasted me with an UMP 45 .... a cal 45 goes at 30 meters MAX ! - not 100 meters .... I will aske DICE to make me a big scope for the UMP 45 so I can headshot with a .45 on 500 meters, would be grand. Same shit seen with shotguns, and no, no no, it does NOT matter what ammo you use in a shottie, at 50 meters you will most likely just piss off the guy because that IS the max range. Nevertheless I got sniped by someone at 80 meters with a shottie.
( I once wa training with some guys from a SWAT team, they could hit targets with a Benelli at 40 meters effectivly, but they were REALLY good at it).

So, away with the tutorials, grab a bazooka thats all that works in this game.

I tried watching the jet tutorial but thought the guy was pretty shit to be honest, some console dude and I would hardly call it jet superiority, just watching him flying around looking at the scenery, much better to teach yourself I think. But these may be useful to complete noobs, not really sure though.

Too busy playing man, I don't try to analyze games too much, I just try to practice as it takes me longer than most to pick up a new game I think, but watching videos and reading guides would just confuse me further I think, was never good at that stuff, have to learn stuff in my own time.
