Battlefield 3 Beta Bugs Already Remedied Says DICE

by Bill Hess on October 1, 2011


DICE working out the kinks in Battlefield 3

The Battlefield 3 beta has not been without its problems. They do call it beta for a reason, and with DICE in the final crunch of development time before release later this month, they are working hard to take the data from the beta and polish up their final product. Fans that are planning on getting the game will be happy to know that DICE has recently announced that most of the issues that people are seeing in the beta have already been fixed.

The Global Community Manager for the Game, Daniel Matros, announced this earlier this morning.

“Alot of what you are seeing in the BETA doesn’t exist in the main game already,” he said. “1st party submission mean we couldn’t give a version of the latest code in the BETA but the retail game is well ahead of what you are seeing now with a lot more bug fixes already in place.”

So don’t get too comfortable sniping from underground, or partying with your friends in the subterranean depths beneath the Metro Park. You won’t be doing this in the retail version of the game.

  • Ryan

    I hope so cause the bugs are terrible right now

    • Mr Fee Fee

      yea i cant even play BF3 anymore and its pissin me off, every time it loads up it says autosave has been disabled press A to continue, and then nothing happens. it stays at that screen 24/7, i tried deleting it and re-downloading it but still doesnt work

  • Bacon

    Haven’t seen any bugs but probably cause I was distracted with the great gameplay

    • Cool dude

      Have you played it yet??? Really??

  • http://www.flickr.com/dirtydesigns Mike

    Best news I have heard all day. Im so glad its an old build phew

  • Tim

    Where’s your beta COD fanhoes?! Just shows how afraid and how much Activision doesn’t care about their community. Have fun with the countless glitches on release day!!!

    • Brian

      You just had to bring up CoD didn’t you? Stupid, stupid fanboy with their stupid fanboy wars.

  • thal

    I gotta say after a lot of hours on xbox the PS3 version is running way better for me. I have a new slim 360 and a great connection. I’m ranked 17 on xbox so its not like I played an hour or so.

    Seeing A LOT of texture pop ins, lots of sound glitches, reload animation fail, ads fails, some bad hit detection and all of this is on Xbox and not on PS3.

    I AM NOT A FANBOY!! I have way more friends on Xbox so this sucks for me. But I’m not getting shit on when I play PS3

    • Cool dude

      rank 17 takes 6 hours to do not one hour… Your a fanboy and ur trying to make xbox 360 look bad.. you obviously havent played the beta

  • titan

    Those sound glitches are driving me nuts

  • BIGRED15

    Okay Tim cut the crap. Its that attitude that causes these childish fanboy wars.

    Like I keep saying. Betas hold as much significance on the final product as the preseason does on the regular season in football.

    Regardless I’m having a blast with the gameplay. So much to take in and its just the beta. Finally got my guns customized the way I like so now im just taking candy from babies.

    • Dovahkiin

      Oh come on, it’s AOTFB.
      so let the fanboys attack all they want.
      I personally am an Elder Scrolls fanboy.

  • thal

    It’s not perfect on PS3 either but the only thing I’ve had happen to me on ps3 is falling through the map. Adjusting me kit and when I deploy the screen is dimmed. Pause unpause fixed this and the not being able to ads. Switch to secondary real quick will fix that.

    But the CorelDraw gameplay is running smoother on the PS3. This is probably a first for Sony. A game running better on the shit. Haha sorry Sony fanboys

  • thal

    Core gameplay**

    man attack of the fanboy give us an edit function.

  • http://www.flickr.com/dirtydesigns Mike

    @Thal Have you reported these issues to Dice on the official forum?
    I hold they sort out how the enemy fly a mile when they get shot, its like they are at zero gravity.

  • exops91

    Say i dont mind the beta can go round with the second sniper rifle and get kills with that on metro but say cant wait for the rest :D gonna be sick say want them to do something they did with the bad company 2 beta where they allow the vehicle map aswell so can get a look at the sort of vehicles and what they are like say heard the apache aint gonna be in it my favorite heli in the game :(

  • exops91

    say there is bugs with the bipods just gota get used to them but can still do stuff with bugs

  • adeel ahmed

    thats great now someone plz tell me how to play the damn beta for xbox
    i click on multiplayer but nothing happens :(

  • JACK-THIS1

    @Tim
    Cod does not need beta. You know why because it’s the same game play.
    There is definitely nothing wrong with that. Bf3 on the other hand I’m glad they did release a beta because now I don’t have to buy it. Yes it sucks balls. There is no replay value for me. I’ve played for 5 hours non stop trying to look for something to like . Graphic I thought would be the selling point for bf but even that was horrible. This doesn’t even come close to blackops and their going up against MW3? yeah goodluck with that.

    @Exops91
    Bf boys. Claim that this game is for mature audience only. … I guess you guy can add retard to that list. I’m referring to you in case you didn’t get it.

    • Dovahkiin

      You MW3 fanboys are so hypocritical; complaining about BF fanboys posting on MW3 articles.

  • tsmiff

    COD doesnt need a beta because they’ve been coming out with the same game for the last 5 years.

  • Letthewookiewin

    I think it’s good so far but don’t like that there are different gun load outs for attacker and defender. And graphically I thought it would have been a bit smoother looking I’m playing on my PS3 I haven’t tried it on my 360. It’s pretty rough to look at outside until you get down in the subway.

  • yungmez

    So when has COD ever come out with a beta?? Or even a demo before the game comes out never u fanboys should only talk about what u know u make yourself sound stupid as shit lmao….. but bacc to the beta I feel it looks better on the Xbox way better then the PS3

    • hotrod

      I hope it looks better then the beta the game looks old like 1999 game so far call of duty got them beat

    • AKA Zzz

      Did anyone even mention CoD? What a loser…

    • Someguy222

      They had a beta for WaW, so not never.

      Not a Fanboy, so feel free to yell at me as I will never waste my time looking at this to see your reply.

  • Patrick

    Well how about the lag issues for XBOXLIVE?

  • Aaron

    YungMez you have just summoned Allen. Prepare for a rant.

  • Enjoi

    I had the bluescreen glitch where when you spawn it’s the blue that shows when your selecting your weapon it’s only lasts for one life just kinda annoying for long range kills but something I hope is gone. It happened twice and I’m rank 10

    • grisleybear

      if your playing on console simply bring up the scoreboard or menu, that should get rid of it, i have had the problem many a time.

  • Enjoi

    COD doesn’t have a beta because everyone would relize that it’s the same MP from the last one in the series would hurt sales WAY too much. But with COD setting numbers with Black Ops they didn’t show how many copies have been traded in :P

  • Enjoi

    Why is everyone complaining about graphics? Your playing A NEW GAME ON A 6 YEAR OLD SYSTEM does your 6 year old Desktop or Laptop run current games? No. If you think graphics are bad go get a fucking PC i’m sick of hearing it looks bad. It’s a improvement from BC2 which looked good. COD can offer better graphics and FPS because it doesn’t take much to run it. COD maps are the size of the little shitter on Arica Harbor. The game looks good on consoles and even better on PC if you wanna compare this game to COD go play 64 player conquest and you’ll be addicted PROMISE

  • Chuck D

    COD should be an xbox 360 exclusive. PS3 doesn’t need more garbage ports. Let the kids play their precious game while real men play BF on a real console.

  • thal

    Ok I’ve played a shit ton on both systems now. Bottom line is they are both junk. Honestly EA should not have put this out. I’m not a COD fan boy. I’m a 50 rank on BC2. I think EA pushed this beta out and the beta is probably a 2 month old build. The game has already gone gold so its finalize and ready to go into production.

  • vinzer0

    Its great and all and i understand that this is a beta but saying the bugs are fixed?? please! i see players under the map when i shoot an enemy no life is taken away…….Fixed!? BS!

    • grisleybear

      They are saying that the bugs are going to be fixed in the final game, not the BETA you are playing at the moment. There is also news of downtimes on servers on PS3, Xbox and PC for the BETA, you never know, they may be giving it an update, maybe even giving you a taste of Caspian Border. Trust me, once you strafe a convoy of tanks with your A10 you know that you are playing a true battlefield game!!

  • thal

    Well in a month we will all see. Was Dice lying about the bugs being fixed or is Dice the new Treyarch.

  • anonymous

    I haven’t seen a single glitch or bug on the PS3 version on the beta, which is odd because the PS3 is usually the buggiest of all. However, on the PC, I’ve had a LARGE variety of issues with the game. Going prone has put me into various geometry at multiple times, once it even made me fall through the floor and into oblivion. Laggy servers abound on the PC, but no problems on the console so far. So far, I’m not not disappointed with BF3, just with the PC build of it… although it looks gorgeous on the PC.

  • Bomberman12

    Does nobody do their research? Its already been said that graphics and sound have been nerfed for the beta. Expect clearer visuals and orgasmic sound when it releases, yes even on console. DICE aint no amateurs, let them do their magic up to release.

  • IHATEHIPSTERS

    you die to easy in BF idk how people like it

    • YO HOE

      That’s because you suck at Battlefield, silly!

  • lowtie

    Please stop bitching about this. go outside and make a friend for Christ sake. sure it has problems…..its still in the works. yes they could have made the beta better and it wouldn’t have made the company look as bad. oh well just buy the game and return it if it sucks

  • Alex

    Graphics are still gonna be wank though!

  • Alex

    Chuck D you knob

  • thal

    You die easy in the beta because there is a glitch where u take higher damage while moving.

    I got a Dice producer to tell me last night that the beta was a build that was broke off months ago. And as far as development goes that’s a lifetime ago.

  • dark

    If the game won’t have a main menu and will launch from a web browser, I’ll cancel my preorder.

  • Wipeout

    Chuck Norris doesn’t go after soldiers they go after him

  • Jim

    When I try to load it says “autosave dissabled” then press “A” to continue but nothing happens. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Riptherevofa7x

    Beta needs more Caspian Border please :D

  • HeavensWarrior121

    Yea so ive been playing battlefuck 3 these past two days and yall telling me this game is suppose to be better then mw3?? Lmfao f.u.c.k outa here i fall into so many random sink holes its crazy smh i kno its a beta but dice already saud they fixed most if the problems right?

    Yea it has nice graphics but the respawing is type bad(even tho u can pick where u wanna spawn at sometimes) they camp way to much,half if the team lays on the tunnel floors or grass -_- game is over-rated i rather fly the jets n drive the tanks

  • Bomberman12

    Heavenswarrior121, did you not hear that this is an older build, they had to send it to microsoft and sony before the ok was given. Thats at least a week or two so id say this is a build from early-mid september. The MW3 dev team is already sittin on an island drinkin tequila cuz dopes like you buy their same product over and over. Im just glad BF fans havent been left in the dark and we can actually get some play time before release. Keep it up dice, if it werent for you guys, wed still be playing doom

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @bitcherman12 your calling over 500 million people dopes? Lmfao battledick fans are so stupid and blind..do you think people care about suck ass battlefield? Nobody buys that crappy ass game,battledick 3 is over-rated

    I rather play mw2 then battkedick 3.its not the same game if they add new maps,guns,perks,new story mode,new spec ops,and survival mode dumb ass..retarded bf fans like your self will never understand and realize lmfao i swear your fuckin stupid

  • Bomberman12

    No not 500 million people, just the ones who keep buying their games then come on here bragging about MW3, which, btw isnt out yet or hasnt seen the light of any average guys console. Talking trash about a beta is like saying yur steak is undercooked, then the waiter says yaa thats because we took it off the grill early for you. Doesnt make sense huh, well neither do you sir. Matros was right, so many ungrateful people…

  • HeavensWarrior121

    I dont even know why i keep responding to you battefuck fans smh i honestky think yall stuck on stupid based on fps games..if you honestly think battledick 3 is or will be better then mw3 drink bleach..alot of bleach

    And i wasnt braggin i was giving my view how they over-rate bf3 yea its beta and there wasnt no vehicles or jets but besides that and unlocking a few things wats so good about it? Nothin its slow paced and camp way to much smh

    • Cool dude

      Youre in denial… time you realise your precious cod is gonna die… aww…

  • Fais

    Believe it or not, some of those glitches actually worked in my favor. Got like two free kills on the glitch where when you approach a objective station you drop below the ground. Battlefield 3 is a great game but imma stick with COD: MW3.

  • Cold Truth

    As glitchy as the beta may be, Modern warfail 2.5 will be twice as glitchy on release day. How does it feel to pay $60 for a beta? XD Have fun complaining about OP weapons, disconnections, and campers.

  • Jason

    DICE your full of shit why tell people that the bugs are fixed when you have players that cannot get in to servers, or cpu crashes or direct x problems just to name a few. Your just abother EA sports bitch that cannot put out a working product.

  • nick

    “its just like Bad Company 2″.

    Did you play BC2 ever?

  • Enjoi

    I <3 how noone reads anyone's post your falling into sink holes in the build of the game that was pre alpha. THE HOLE WILL BE FIXED did you seen it in the Alpha at gamescom??? No dumb motherfuckers. This is why people don't release beta's anymore everyone is whiny bitches

  • Bomberman12

    Hey WOW, i dont recall any of us saying BF3 will outsell MW3, thats mostly due to little kids and their COD hype. BF3 will have top notch sound, graphics and realistic gameplay. Thats what will make the game stand out to some. COD will stand out to others because of the hollwoodesque campaign. 60 fps and “good” graphics are possible cuz yur maps are tiny and theres no scale or vehicles buzzin by you. Yaa operation metro is infantry based but id have to admit its one of their better infantry based maps. I wouldnt so much call it camping all the time on this map, but more self preservation so the team may win. K/d ratio isnt the #1 goal.

  • King

    COD is so easy a 5 yr old can play and dominate. That’s why it sells so well. You fanhoes try to defend the same franchise that screws you. Weren’t you the same community b¡tching about hackers and OP perks in MW2?! Yea, you were. What makes you think this COD will be any different when the videos they’ve shown literally look like MW2. They don’t even give you free dlc. Even RDR gave free dlc and it doesn’t sell as well as COD. They don’t give a f*ck about the community and they’ve shown it time and time again. Yet you defend them, what a shame. They deserve the hate.

  • thal

    @HeavensWarrior121 you have been ripping on BF for weeks and ur post proves this is the first BF game you’ve ever played. In fact u haven’t even played a BF game. You have played a beta that is built months ago.

    Like I said I spoke to a Dice producer. He said then retail version is a lifetime away from where the beta is at.

    You play Blops all the time I bet. And that game is broke as shit. David Vahn said himself on Twitter that Treyarch needed 3 years to get Blops to run right.

    A tank in the park will change everything. And the subway levels aren’t vintage BF at all.

  • thal

    I will say this the beta is broke. I don’t blame a COD fanboy that has never played a BF game to be like WTF is this piss of a game. But don’t act u know shit about BF

  • Bomberman12

    I like you passion Thal, i too have played previous battlefields, all except 2142 cuz i couldnt get into the scifi stuff. But DICE has pretty much done it right since 1942, besides the BC series which was basically a large scale test to see how a true BF entry would do on console, same with 1943. BTW, Am i the only one that gets this vibe of nextgen fps while playing the beta? Yaa theres glitches but when she runs smooth, oo is she smoothh. Its very vibrant and graphics are muchh more fluid, unlike BC2. Plus the animations kickass

  • Bomberman12

    It reminds me of when the first modern warfare came out, it was damn good i have to say but then it started getting repetitious after world at war. Different story, different skin. I felt like i was playing an expansion pack, seriously. But i feel the battlefield series has definitely earned its place competing with CoD. COD people can keep playing COD, i dont want to convert you cuz i like squads and teamplay. That is one positive of two choices, not as many rambos on battlefield, just the way i like it.

  • thal

    The controls on BF3 consoles are much improved. A lot more quick twitch. The movement of ur players is very good. Going prone feels very smooth, better the COD. Even though I don’t like prone its a part of the game and its here to stay. The guns have nice recoil but are manageable for anyone that can burst fire. Gun damage is good. I have gotten a triple spray a few times with the M16A3.

    But the hit box is broke. It’s not hit detection. And the high damage glitch while running is very bad in the beta.

    Texture pop ins need to be fix on xbox. Which I think they will. I’m very very worried about the screen tearing on PS3 I don’t think it will be fixed. I saw it on GT5 and I think tearing is an issue with the hardware not the game.

    If the issues get fixed this game will be a great FPS. Will it bear MW3 hell no. Will COD fanboys love this game even if it gets fixed, hell no.

  • Bomberman12

    Thal, think you could ask about the screen tearing? Or was that previous info a one time deal? Also, prone can be a life saver, plus it adds to the tactical side. If you want to go stealth attack on an mcom then you can do just that or blitzkrieg that shiz with yur mates. Btw, “battlefield stories” are what brings me back to the series again and again. Every match is different and crazy stories come out of it especially with vehicles. Anybody out there care to share a story?

  • Hank

    It’s sad that this topic has so many comments, but I will throw one in anyways. Just to set it straight, both games have campers, and both gMes have their good and bad. In BF2 I got killed by people hiding around collapsed buildings all the time, I would be fighting a guy and then his team mate would spawn right next to him and kill me because I wasn’t expecting it. BF3 is slow paces and if you like that then play it, call of duty is fast paced and is not mention to be realistic at all, if you want to play a realistic game then you better play one where you don’t respawn after you die, that would mean both games are unrealistic. In the end, fast paced is where most people want it and that it why COD will never be defeated by BF games.

  • thal

    I’m most worried about the hit box. Read this and watch his YouTube video

    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2826551139106544694/

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGaP5wTYLtQ&feature=channel_video_title

    That video shows the same thing that was wrong with Black Ops. The curving bullet around corners and cover.

    Look guys I’m an adult, 31 been around gaming since Atari. I’m not a BF fanboy or COD fanboy. I love BF but BC2 had problems Blops had problems and so did MW. But out of these games MW has the best hit detection. And that’s the core of any FPS. If u screw that up all engagements in the game are BS. I hope Dice has it fixed or is fixing it. But people more in tune to programming say its a bad netcode. Not good

  • thal

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGaP5wTYLtQ

    There that link should work

  • HungGreeHypo

    There were a few minor hiccups when i played such as flickering lighting effects in the distance and the ironsight at the tip of the M16 disappearing when i used the ACOG sight. I did run into a major one though when I literally fell through the map while rushing a plant sight. But that is why you have a beta!

  • HeavensWarrior121

    I havent played any other bf game when i told you i played bfc2 And bf 1942..both games suck and battlefield 3 will be a let down…so many hit markers its crazy,the knifeing in the game is terrible,grenades are useless, respawning is kinda cheap and stupid where you have basically two choices to respawn and both are realy bad 1.respswn from the beginning point where you will run for 5 mins till u get back into the fight,or resoawn where your team-mates are

    In the end mw3 will be great and way better,fast paced gameplay,and now you can level up your weapons? Ima love mw3 :)

    • nick

      “so many hitmarkes it’s crazy” lol have you played BF3 yet? It’s just as twitch if not more twitch then cod. Close range 3-4 shots will down someone.

      “grenades are useless” lol what? Im seriously doubting you’ve played the beta. Grenades are far from useless. When you’re clearing out the rooms and hallways of the metro basically your only option is grenades. Seriously: Play the beta.

      “respawning is kinda cheap and stupid where you have basically two choices to respawn and both are realy bad 1.respswn from the beginning point where you will run for 5 mins till u get back into the fight” Respawning from deployment or a command post, at least in BC2, it takes about 1 minute tops to get to an enemy command post assuming you spawn front line. On Metro, which is smaller its around 30 seconds. OhNOES! 30 SECONDS WHAT WILL I DO?

      “or resoawn where your team-mates are” And that’s bad how?

  • http://www.flickr.com/dirtydesigns Mike

    In a recent Q&A with Dice, they said there will never be any vehicles in Operation Metro. I think this makes sense for tanks and other vehicles with weapons, maybe throw a quad bike in there. Either way I think the game is going to be awesome and even though I think the game is soon to be finished they will release an update for release that will download when you first play. One of the main devs put on his twitter that he was on vacation now so it must be nearly finished, if not finished.

  • nick

    If your running all the time try spawning on squadmates. Its kinda the entire point of a squad. The most Ive ever had to run is 30 seconds before im near enemies. And if 30 seconds is devastatingly boring enough for you to switch games you need to learn patience.

  • HungGreeHypo

    Who the hell let HeavensWarrior out of his play pen? We get it you like running around shooting people in Call of Duty with your other infant friends. This game will be for adults who would like to expierence a more realistic and better looking expierence. You either love it or you hate it but there is no doubt that this is going to be one of the finest games ever made and will sell a lot of copies.

  • walkingdead

    LOVE THIS FUCKING GAME ALREADY! but has anyone spawned and there guns werent there? lol

  • thal

    HeavensWarrior121 I’d love to see a video of someone spawning back at the base on metro and running 5 mins. 30 seconds tops to get in there. And its more like 10-15 seconds to get in a battle.

    A knife is suppose to be useless. In COD knives beat guns. Come on that like paper beating scissors. Die hard duty fans will tell they hate the panic knife in COD. I can get grenade kills in BF3. Equip explosive as a spec, its like danger close.

    They just have to fix this hit detection/ instant deaths

    • nick

      True. The only issue with the beta is hitboxes. I dont think hitreg is a problem, but it seems like hitboxes arent super accurate or lag somewhat. That was Black op’s problem too. Hitboxes, not hitreg. BC2 was a hitreg problem.

      Otherwise I dont have too many complaints with the beta. I jut want Caspian Border.

  • walkingdead

    BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA!!!! thats all that needs to be said ppl are making there final thoughts on a game thru the beta? if u do that ur fucking stupied this game AS A BETA even beats cod just wait till it comes out cod will be history and battlefield will go down as one or even the best first person shooter ever. and if ur thinking oh cod has sold more copies you want to know why?….MILLIONS OF FUCKTARDS THAT HAVE MONEY AND NOTHING TO SPEND IT ON

  • walkingdead

    BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA!!!! thats all that needs to be said ppl are making there final thoughts on a game thru the beta? if u do that ur fucking stupied this game AS A BETA even beats cod just wait till it comes out cod will be history and battlefield will go down as one or even the best first person shooter ever. and if ur thinking oh cod has sold more copies you want to know why?….MILLIONS OF FUCKTARDS THAT HAVE MONEY AND NOTHING TO SPEND IT ON. so all you kids run and play mw2 and a half. well the ppl that are real gamers and have good taste play bf3

  • BIGRED15

    Brother oh brother. Heavens warrior one thing is clear. If u were to play me in battlefield I would rock your world. I don’t think I’ve met someone as clueless about a game as you.

  • Rusty

    I sure hope the whole ‘freeze xbox every time i try to run’ thing is fixed too. Ive played 2 games of this beta, after countless attempts. It has completely turned me away from trying anymore

  • josh

    yeah the only problem I had with the beta was screen tearing occasionally.
    Truthfully though I am not really enjoying it.
    IDK Y cuz I want to dig it, I just can’t get into it. and I have dug previous installments.
    Maybe its just the beta making it play weird (idk though ?) but Im just not diggin it.

  • blake

    Have they said anything about fixing the reload animation that doesn’t show some of the time (Assault Rifles and Rocket Launchers). Or the bi-pod animation on other players that has the pegs sticking out 90 degrees to the rifle?

  • HeavensWarrior121

    Up you probaly would win in bf3 because you will probaky camp and hide into the bushes and dark tunnels lmao but if its just straight 1vs1 gun to gun run gameplay i will destroy you at your own shitty game

    Now imagine if you played me 1vs1 in mw3 it wouldnt be fair…

    • nick

      Look at you talking shit. You have cod4 for PC? 1v1 me gun on gun and I’ll dispose of all the “battlefield fans just suck at cod” crap.

    • tim

      yep, go 1v1 against nick WITH PROMOD on. Now whos talking.

  • Some Random Gamer

    Nick. Do it. Seriously. Dispose of Heavens warrior. His nonsense talk is just getting old. Give him a taste of his own medicine.

  • HeavensWarrior121

    Wtf i look like…i have a ps3 i havent played a disc computer game since tom clancys raven shield back in 2004 lmao if you have a ps3 ill play you 1vs1 in any fps game

    • nick

      I have BC2 on ps3 but that game doesnt do private matches. I have call of duty classic…?

  • BIGRED15

    Camp really? Is that a joke? U can’t camp in BF not if u wanna b completely useless. I had one game with 31 k and like 4mcom charges set. U don’t do that by sitting around. I try to actually help my team trying create pinch points by executing flanking maneuvers, pushing the battle foward. Basically smash mouth shooting. Do u think u can handle that? I really doubt it. Iive logged 400 hours in bc2. I also have a very complete team that backs me. So 1v1, yeeeeaaa thats not my shtick. But if u wanna get 3 people together id b happy to give u a well deserved kick in the teeth.

    Being rambos doesnt prove anything. Coordinating as a team that’s for real strategists.

    • nick

      Dude you have to admit BF3 has a bit of a camping problem. I love BF3 so far dont get me wrong but lack of universal destruction = campers.

    • walkingdead

      dude hellz yes i back u up aaalll the way. anyone that needs a REAL BF play add me on live XSootheVSayerX

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @nick umm so im guessing your buying bf3 for pc?? N cod classic as in mw1? I only got mw2,n bitchops..idk if you buy bf3 for ps3 ill just borrow the game from a friend wen it comes out in two weeks and will hop in a game

    • nick

    @ Bacon thanks for the laugh

    U are such an A$$ clown nutless warrior. Nick I agree about camping being an issue but those are usually the least productive players from what I’ve witnessed.

    Lol nutlesswarrior has such a better ring to it. (C how stupid that sounds… Ya f**kface) Why do most if not all games have “team deathmatch” team ctf clan battles? Gee could it be that the devs actually want u to play with a team? Just a hunch but u probably wouldn’t know teamwork if it kicked u square in the chops. Why I built a team that can actually

    • nick

      On the attacking team support is basically useless. On the defending team 3 or 4 supports who are well placed with bipods can hold off the entire attacking team for at least 35 tickets.
      theres a difference between camping and defending. Using cover and a bipod with an LMG to lock down an area = proper defending. Sitting in a corner with you 1337 turtle beaches and a shotgun is camping. BF3 has both. I dont care about the supports because thats how you’re supposed to play the game. Its the campers that are annoying.

    • walkingdead

      @ nick. for real dude thats what its about key word DEFENDING do that not camp lmg with bipod holding down the fort thats how its done. lately ive been seeing some shity recon and i thought to myself…these fucking guys must be thinking there playing cod wtf gtfo

  • BIGRED15

    … Create wins. Teamwork trumps the one man wolf pack anyday yes even in cod I’ve seen it done and it is indeed effective.

  • Cool dude

    awww yeah 100th

    While we are rambling, I might as well promote my flickr page. Click on my name…

    Beta, glitches, camping, COD and all the rest of that jazz.
    It would be awesome to have a game with everyone on here though.

  • Enjoi

    Hit me up I’m down @ Enjoi1Sk8in on PSN :D

  • grisleybear

    I have played the BETA alot the past few days. Rank 41 and enjoying every moment. Yes there are a few bugs but they are to be expected. If you come into a BETA thinking that you are playing a finished and polished product then you are sadly mistaken. The PC version is apparently alot better. Think about it. The PC has already had an Alpha testing stage whilst the Xbox and PS3 have not even had that. Im sure DICE will listen to the community and get the game sorted out in time, heck they have even said it is an old build!! Cancelling your preorder over a game in its BETA stages is just downright stupid.

  • thal

    While u guy are trolling, I really think the core of the game is broke. Just like BC. The hitboxes are screwed getting shot around corners and behind cover and the instant deaths from a reg gun. Amazing that no one even watched that video I post. Just like always here on this site. Troll, flame, u suck, no u suck, well ur game suck, no ur game sucks worse. It’s why I only come here for a laugh not a real debate on games.

    • nick

      I HONESTLY havent noticed a problem with hitboxes. Why am I the only one? Everyone on the forums is bitching about hit detection. I dont get it.

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @bitcherman15 yea you sound like a gay lil female…your like completely dumb i swear to god how old are you? In every single shooter game from las vegas,socom,ghost recon,modern warfare,battlefield they HAVE to HAVE teamdeath match thats the most playable and popular game mode,most shooters have private matches besides bf there is 1v1 game mode if there was alot if people would play it to test there skills,as in previous mw gamee it became popular,just like in las vegas 2 private matches became popular and i love that game one of the best

    I dont need team-mates to win,or to look good it can be 1 vs 3 and i will destroy you bitcherman15 team you suck

  • Some Random Gamer

    Heavenswarrior just shut up already. First, gain some respect and learn some proper grammar. Yes, we all make mistakes at times with this but you totally abuse grammar.

    Next, In my honest opinion Moder Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 will both be GREAT games, with a reason for both. With modern warfare 3 kids of all ages can enjoy it and not really care about how the game is. Battlefield will be a great game for older kids and adults. So quit rambling on and on. We get it. Go play Modern Warfare with your “kid” friends.

    Finally, you really suck at jokes. They not only make you dumb and idiotic but also a… Actually that’s all what your jokes do to your image here…

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @somebitchgamer i swore i told you before wateva u say doesnt matter in life so please stfu thanks :)

  • HeavensWarrior121

    • nick

      Im getting uncharted 3 launch day. I suck at it though I admit.

  • http://www.flickr.com/dirtydesigns Mike

    You can tell on the beta when you are playing with or against COD players. Can Dice fix that please?

  • walkingdead

    @fagget ass warrior homo plz just shut ur face you have no idea how stupid ur making urself look it really is sad atleast trolling can make ppl laugh but ur just a retard that probly still lives with his mommy in the basement that has no live besides playing fagget ass cod games and being cheap so plz go shoot urself im sure everyone on this website would like that think of other ppl shit face

  • thal

    @nick so that video I posted none of that stuff has happened to you??? It happened to me so much I had to stop playing the beta

    • nick

      A lot of that is just lag. getting shot after running to cover happens in all laggy games. And most of the other examples were just spread. Like BC2, BF3 doesnt actually have to much physical recoil. Most recoil is simulated in spread. Which makes it hard to accurately gauge full auto. Which means you get a lot of wtf moments when full autoing someone at medium range. Its all spread.

      The only issue Ive seen with hit detection is when you die, either the killcam doesnt show accurate health information OR the last few shots you fire dont count after you die. It might be that bullets traveling through air disappear when you die. Or it might be poor netcode.

  • thal

    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/forum/threadview/2826551139106544694/

    That. It’s happening to a lot of players the thread is 40+ pages long. Video link on the thread

    • nick

      And the confusing part is that I havent experienced too many problems. Am I just crazy lucky or what?

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @walkingfaget where do these retards come from?? and im only 18 wtf you want me to live in a big ass mansion by my self or something?? lmfao and “i have no live playing cod games being cheap and you want me to shoot my self?” i cant even take you serious lmao atleast i have a job and have s.e.x with females unlike you which ur probaly like what 30 something who gets no ass from his ur husband,ur useless to talk to please go try to find a girlfriend ight fag bag

  • HeavensWarrior121

    @nick ight just let me know if you buy it for ps3 if you do when def gonna play against or with each-other to see whos better lol a challenge is a challenge my friend..,ima just have to borrow bf3 from one of my friends,first i need to get my ps3 fixed, its been broke since july something O.o, im just not that worried about video games lately, but i might rent bf3 if its better then i expected when it comes out october 25th but im def buying modern warfare 3

  • nick

    Ya theres a difference between camping and defending though. A support with a bipod is not a camper; hes a defender. Sitting in a corner miles away from the objective is camping. BF3 has some campers. Not TOO many, but its annoying.

  • thal

    Ur just lucky or u don’t know its happening going for 100 health to 0 in an instant, like u got shot gunned or sniped. The thread page I post now has 1300 comments and 47 pages. If they don’t fix this Nick its going to ruin the game. I canceled my preorder. I’m waiting for release to see if this issue goes away.

    • nick

      Just played another game and Im still not seeing too big of a problem. Try working on your internet connection. Im not being a fanboy; I literally have not encountered any of these problems. You play on console? That might be it.

  • thal

    I’m 20 down 4 up high speed cable with a good ping. not even going through a router with a patch cable I tested myself. I do networking, the cable side. Fiber optics cat 5e cat 6 in offices and cisco boxes.

    A guy on the forum has a top notch rig running off fiber in new York and is seeing it. It’s not lag Nick

  • thal

    And the video I post was off a pc.

  • thal

    And EA/Dice locked that thread. Wow there was no fights or bad things posted. Now that shows u they know there is a problem. It was by far the biggest thread in the bug and glitches sections. 49 pages long with thousands of post and video evidence. And no memeber of Dice EA or a forum mod ever even acknowledged the thread. In yet the mods were in threads with 10 post.

    • nick

      Its either hitbox lag or spread. And by hit box lag I mean hitboxes that move maybe a frame or 2 behind the image of the player. Since consoles run in 30 this might be more of a problem on consoles. Black Ops had this problem. The solution would hurt framerate on consoles. So do you want fancy graphics, destruction and vehicles? Or do you want proper hitboxes. Thats a close call. On PC I havent noticed anything, so I guess there isnt as much of a problem. That guy on the forums with a tricked out rig complaining? Lol.

      Im confident there are no hit registration problems though. Shooting at a stationary target at close range ALWAYS gives you accurate hits. A lot of these “BF3 has bad hitreg” videos on youtube are just people full autoing and not realizing that bullets dont always go where your reticule is.

      Its better than blops though. Black ops had hitbox AND hitreg issues. This just has hitbox problems.

  • thal

    For me its way worse then Blops. I looked into modems. I’m running an older modem. A 2.0, so I ordered the newer 3.0 modem. This happens to some degree in all FPS, if someone has a faster connection. But when I say instant deaths, its like a one shot kill. At first I though the killcam was giving me the wrong info on the person who shot me….but after repeated times I new it wasn’t a weapon info glitch. It was the sever, the game or my system not relaying the information fast enough that my guy was taking damage

    So I’m getting the new SB6121 3.0 cable modem. Should be here by the end of the beta. I’ll let ya know if I keep getting bull sh.ited on. I wanna love this game, but right now haven’t played the beta since Saturday

    • tim

      why are you getting a modem? A modem is one of the most basic types on internet out there and is at least a decade old.

  • bArsarn

    I consider this really is helpful and usually do not see posted usually. This really is good information.

  • xdesarn

    I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty. You’re wonderful! Thanks!
