    Battlefield 3 Death Rail 

    This is one of the craziest things I’ve seen so far in Battlefield 3.

      How much time does one have to spend playing the actual game before you start making up mini games?

    • Donncha 4:33 pm on November 24, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      Too much time I suspect!

    How to land a jet in BF3 

    I know you’ve wondered if the jet can be landed. Well, it can. Here’s the proof!

    • Gavin 8:48 pm on November 14, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      I managed it once on Caspian Border on the highway behind A flag although I crashed on take off again. Duck is also really good at it, I watched him the other night landing to hand the Jet over to Dave.

        As I’ve said before, anyone who can turn those damn things gets my respect. I need a lot more practise in them!

    Battlefield 3 stats for your own site? 

    Battlelog is very useful but sometimes you want to have stats for your own site.

    With that in mind I’ve come across 2 APIs that can be used to talk to EA’s servers:

    • bf2s.com have an API for Battlefield 2 that is the same as the one for bfs3.com.
    • The bf3stats.com api is explained here and looks fairly easy to work with.
    • There’s also a WordPress plugin that uses the bf3stats.com api to power a widget.

    I haven’t tried any of the above but I will be downloading the WordPress plugin, hopefully I can submit a few patches to the author if I can as we’ll need shortcode support if it’s to work on the B2C site.

      I wrote a plugin for bf2s.com way, way back in the day: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/battlefield-2-stats/

      It was one of my early plugins. 🙂

      There’s also signature images: http://forums.bf2s.com/viewtopic.php?id=144340

      Fun visiting BF2S again. I was a moderator there back in the day (and apparently still am!).

      Nice, I have yet to look at this bf3 one. Maybe some night this week…

      Glad you found this Donncha, I plan on changing the code so that I can grab a list of players and output it in a table format. I haven;t really done WP plugins before, but I took a quick 5 minute look and it seems simple to customize for my site.

      Doing a more generic shortcode approach looks to be work though, if you do that, I’d love to use that instead.

      WP does rule.

    BF3: Helicopters and AA on Noshahr Canals 

    Two very differing commentaries on Noshahr Canals (rush) in Battlefield 3. One gives tips on flying a helicopter, the other shows how overpowered a good driver on the AA gun on that level is!

    Meanwhile I started playing the game on Xbox 360 last night and it was the exact same as on PS3. Until you unlock some of the better weapons it’s really tough. It didn’t help that I was dumped into losing teams, even getting spawn trapped on one map.

    Paul and myself finished the first coop mission in Battlefield 3 last night, on Xbox 360. Did well too! 🙂

    Battlefield 3 Weapon Damage 

    Den Kirson is at it again Amrosorma, CrustyM, erk070, and tomchuk of ESDECO produced a neat weapon damage spreadsheet for Battlefield 3 here.

    I haven’t checked it out yet but as I’ve hardly unlocked anything it probably doesn’t really matter to me yet any way!

    Some Battlefield 3 tips and myths here. The first two I saw myself, the third from here and summarised by Gavin:

    • When you die bullets and rockets will still fly through the air. I disabled a tank after I died in one game.
    • The knifing animation can be interrupted if the attacker is killed. I was lying on the ground, then suddenly looking into this guy’s face and at the sky and gunfire shot him down and I escaped!
    • If you plant a mobile spawn point and die don’t come back as a recon as the spawn point will explode.

    Lots of great discussion on the Battlelog forum.

    BF3: It all started out so well.. 

    Battlefield 3 was finally released in Ireland and the UK and elsewhere yesterday. I had a few games early in the evening and then later played with a few of the guys.

    Yes, stats aren’t everything but looking at a killcam all the time isn’t fun either!

      That’s the same KDR I wound up with.

      As long as you’re playing objective-based games, it really doesn’t matter. The new SPM should be more important, followed by WLR. A low KDR just means that you’re selflessly charging objective while the rest of your team is off getting their jollies.

        Ohhhh James I like the way you put that. Yes my K/D is rubbish as Im trying to win the game, not increase my K/D

        Works for me !

    The latest Battlefield 3 trailer makes me wish the game was out right now and that I had a PC fast enough to run it. PS3 and Xbox 360 for me!

      It looks amazing, I really cant wait for this to come out…I’m drooling 😉

    BF3: Grand Bazaar and Operation Firestorm Footage 

    Two new Battlefield 3 videos for you today! They’ll probably get uploaded to Youtube but they’re on IGN right now and I can’t embed them here.

    1. Operation Firestorm is a huge conquest map.
    2. Grand Bazaar is an urban map with lots of close fighting.

    Thanks Arnaud for tweeting those. Can.not.wait!

    Edit: Here they are:
