BfBC2: Recon’s Revenge
If there’s one thing I don’t like it’s being shot out of a moving vehicle by a sniper in Bad Company 2.
That’s what happened to me when I joined a game on Arica Harbour as an attacker. I hopped in a Humvee and roared up the road only to die at the hands of a sniper in the tower on the hills. FFS! I only logged in to check the networking was ok (getting the “The router in use may not support IP fragments, and the communication features of some games may be restricted.” error.)
Anyway, I came back as a recon, and armed with the M24 and 12x scope I spawned near the UAV controller. From there I could see a tiny dot moving about in his tower and the occasional flash as he continued to take pot shots at my team. I tried a few shots but an electricity pylon got in the way. I dodged over to the other side of the road for a clearer view and on my second shot got the kill! Me? The noob recon got a long distance kill, marksman headshot or something and 413 points! Woohoo! Yes David, I performed a ritual teabagging too. You’d be proud.
‘Course I didn’t record it. My PVR is upstairs, laptop in the kitchen, PS3 in the living room. Bah.
Oh, and if anyone has any suggestions for the “ip fragments” problem I’d love to hear them. I already set the MTU lower without making any difference to the error showing. None of my friends were playing so I didn’t get a chance to talk to anyone so I don’t even know if it is a problem. I don’t even remember if I that error was showing before. Oh well.
