tips for a noob BF4

34 Replies 1,737 Views Created 14-12-2013
Im not making this up, i played bf4 online last night and got killed with 1 shot from assault rifles almost every death. It would take a good squeeze on the triggers for me to kill them, or I'd be shooting someone then someone else would just come and 1 shot kill me. Not a sniper...which I can understand.

So, I'm rank 1 and all guns are locked ..is It just a case of perseverance? I use engineer mainly..
Its not fun if you die all the time and can't unlock better guns...killzone had the right idea I think, unlocking all guns.
Are you better off staying out of hotspots at first and just trying to get the odd Straggler's?
I haven't played campaign yet, maybe doing that will improve aim?

Use your mini map, keep on the look out for orange (enemy) triangles in your area, also look out for signs of dead team mates as this can show presence of the enemy.

Before you move into a flag/ base sight your weapon and press the spotting button, it can highlight enemy's. Try not to stand out in the open too much. You might also find 32 player conquest is slightly less chaotic than 64 player maps.

It can be daunting at first, try to match your load outs to the maps and you style of play,

maybe you would be better starting with assault or support as they have more powerful guns to start with, remember to keep spotting as this will aid your team and get you extra points, you just need to keep plugging away at it .
Play conquest more than team death match as it will give you more breathing space . Always keep moving , you will be an easy sniper target if you don't !
Signal player will help you get used to things even if you play it on easy
Oh and try to hit the upper part of torso&head when shooting as it will take down players quicker(a bit obvious that one)

Run a test on your connection speed as well, having poor internet can also be a main factor.

My internet speed is 63 down, 20up so that's not an issue.
I reduced that network thing down to 30% after reading that helps.
My issue seems to be aiming, say I see someone first I'll shoot him, might go left and right of him, hit him a bit lol, he turns and 1 shot kill. I know there will be very good players on this..its all they play, whereas I play a lot of FIFA and tend to win mostly on that..but that's another story. Just, kinda feels very unbalance.
Like..the rich get richer and the poor just gets *****ed

I suck too op; I think you just have to put the time in until you don't shoot the sky or your feet all the time.

 

I'm looking to add people, especially anyone with a mic as I think it's going to help. So far I didn't hear one person say a damn word in this game. If anyone would like to squad chat add me; it's going to be easier for you to add me I think as ViralVince is quite easy to remember.

A lot can depend on how you fire. Generally you should only go full auto (holding R2) on enemies at close range. Anything over medium or longe range, you really ought to use burst fire. You have to remember that weapon recoil and bullet spread can have a big effect, so if your holding down R2 in a long salvo at a target 200 metres away, you're really not gonna hit much. :smileytongue:

 

Have you tried adjusting the sensitivity to see if it helps with aiming? I think its set at 20 but I usually ramp it up some to make aiming and movement easier.

BF always take time to get used to. Especially if you are used to the arcadey feel of COD. My best advice would be go through the Assault class/medic and actually play the game properly. There is nothing more frustrating then dying then finding out you had a ally medic near by that chose not to revive you. Also spot enemies when you see them in the open so they then appear on the mini map. For doing this you will also get a small amount of points and when you do reach level 17 plus every point counts because the ranking up process really does start to slow down.

As already stated burst fire your weapon only go full auto on close quarter enemies, always aim waist up when you can, pick a gun and class and stick with it for a while so you get used to it, don't go switching classes and guns. Try and keep just a red dot sight for your gun until you get the hang of it, don't. slap on a longer scope like acog or whatever as these take longer to ADS. If you know there is an enemy round a corner start pre firing as you come round to help against the shoddy netcode. Spot, Spot and Spot.

The starting weapons are not any worse than any other gun they don't get better with rank like cod, the best engineer gun on battlefield 3 was the M4A1 before they nurfed it and you started with that gun. They are just different.

When you get the hang of killing don't just play sniper or assault when you need to take down enemy vehicles at range, try and always play the objective and what is best for the squad/team, don't just revive someone who has just been gunned down without first killing the assailant. try to be aware of people round you so you don't just run in their way, DON'T STAND IN DOORWAYS. Don't spawn on your silent sniper/player (who is allowing the squad to spawn in but keep hidden)and start blasting away with a really loud gun to give their position away.

What the spelling or the flying of them?? :smileytongue:

 

My tip...... SPOT! SPOT! SPOT! tap R1 to put a nice little orange triangle above an enemies head or light up an air/land vehicle so your team can track 'em easily.

 

Why does nobody do this? does my nut in! (or is it just something else that's broken?)

Good grief, I have only played BF3 on Non Hardcore a few times and hated it, the thought of playing with all those silly coloured triangles over everyone's heads just makes me think ***** is the point in playing this if you can't play without those things.

 

Seems to take away any sense of realism for me in the small way that we can get it that is.

 

No Triangles and No mini map makes me have to be more careful and actually Think about what I am doing and be more aware of my surroundings and environment along with potential enemy hot spots.

 

However, we would ALL be considerably better if they worked on addressing the Hit Detection and the Net Code!

Play engineer to begin with guns are more stable and always powerful enough if you hit the target. You can quickly unlock the first Carbine this way. Engineer is also good as you can get the extra points fixing / taking out vehicles. I started assault and stayed with that for a while, moved over to engineer and much prefer it.

Played the objective and stick with your squad.
