battlefield 3 melee problem

7 Replies 3,242 Views Created 19-12-2011

hi, just got battlefield 3 and we are having continuing problems with getting melee to work. it flashes up on screen to press r1 and when we do nothing happens. we just die. we are now stuck on the capture the nuke carrier bit because after hammering the circle button the r1 bit doesnt work for us? does anyone have any tips? could there be a known fault with some copies of the game? is the r1 button supposed to be held or hammered?

Had same troubles dude, press it only when it shows on screen...once...you get a trophy if you do it right..I think.

Re: battlefield 3 melee problem

I don't really know exactly which bit you're talking about, but I do remember that there is one bit in the campaign where you have to stealth kill someone, but all the distances are out. If you move to what in every other part of the game is a suitable knife kill distance, it does what it stupidly does in response to you not doing exactly what you're told... It kills you for no apparent reason beyond disobedience.

 

For that part in the campaign, you have to press R1 when the prompt is on screen, even though it looks like you're far too far away for it to work. If you move closer than the prompt you die.

The timing just needs to be spot on. You need to hit R1 almost instanneoues for it to work. I don't think you need to press O prior to that so many times either unless that prompt was flashing on the screen repeatedly.

 

 

Edit. Ok I'm sure the bolded word doesn't look right. I forget how its spelled.

Yup...  O once, R1 once as soon as it flashes, then X once as soon as it flashes.
