@  Mister Maf : (23 April 2014 - 02:15 PM) Getcher free copy of Red Orchestra 2 until 1 PM EST, Apr 24! http://www.battlestr...eam/#entry52323
@  Holmboy : (23 April 2014 - 11:02 AM) Yes, a good gaming PC unfortunately for game streaming. You can just use it as an Android-based Emulator/Streaming/Gaming machine as well, the thing does a ton of stuff and has an HDMI out.
@  Myelencephalous : (23 April 2014 - 09:09 AM) Does that Nvidia thing require you to have a gaming PC?
@  TheBMT : (22 April 2014 - 07:26 PM) thats crazy holmboy.  I was thinkin bout poppin in BC2 and playin vietnam last week too.  Didnt have time, but I miss those Battlestrat days.
@  Holmboy : (22 April 2014 - 08:13 AM) It's official, the Nvidia SHIELD is awesome and I haven't even scratched the surface of it yet. PC game streaming is setup and boy does it work well. Now to hook it up to my TV and get those Emulators running...
@  Holmboy : (22 April 2014 - 08:07 AM) Yeah, it was a ton of fun running around Vietnam in Bad Company 2 last week. Was on Cao Son Temple and thought "This is where I saw my first Red Dragon video, *sniff-sniff*". That game is still a ton of fun BTW.
@  Dbl Incertion : (22 April 2014 - 07:47 AM) Titanfall $36.99 amazon deal of the day http://www.amazon.co...node=8524689011
@  Mister Maf : (22 April 2014 - 12:02 AM) Acer! This is why Kerbal Space Program doesn't run on your machine anymore - the machine it's developed on: http://www.pcgamer.c...elipe-falanghe/
@  THE RED DRAGON : (21 April 2014 - 10:42 PM) i miss the ole days tbh
@  Alpine gremlin : (21 April 2014 - 02:51 PM) Watching some of Red`s old livestream videos. The good `ole days. :D

@  THE RED DRAGON : (18 April 2014 - 09:02 PM) speaking of space http://t.co/jRkBrpGVm0
@  Grumpy Joe : (18 April 2014 - 08:03 PM) And then there's this... http://www.xkcd.com/1356/
@  Grumpy Joe : (18 April 2014 - 08:02 PM) I'm in the same boat as Acer, love the game but the old commadore 64 wont run it.
@  Acerdavidii : (18 April 2014 - 03:09 PM) Sadly Kerbal Space Program's complexity has outgrown the capability of my computer. :(  I do still have an older version that works.
@  THE RED DRAGON : (18 April 2014 - 02:41 PM) Acer i thought of you when i read this http://kotaku.com/oh...gram-1564736841
@  THE RED DRAGON : (18 April 2014 - 11:36 AM) how sad...thanks for the link..i posted it
@  Acerdavidii : (18 April 2014 - 11:19 AM) Red Dragon, here's something for your channel....It's truly tragic http://www.reuters.c...EA3H0K620140418
@  Acerdavidii : (18 April 2014 - 09:58 AM) Nevermind, it didn't take long at all. Continue about your business....
@  Acerdavidii : (18 April 2014 - 08:50 AM) Xbox 360 tankers, WoT patch for the latest update includes a FULL reload of the game. So be warned.
@  Holmboy : (18 April 2014 - 07:20 AM) This Battlefield 4 music theme cover is awesome! - http://ow.ly/vVipA
@  Holmboy : (17 April 2014 - 09:32 AM) BattleStrats Thursday Throwback starts tonight at 6pm EDT (23:00 BST). We'll be giving away codes for 3 hours of BF4 Double-XP throughout the night. Dust of that copy of Bad Company 2 on PS3 and let's go back to 'NAM!
@  Myelencephalous : (17 April 2014 - 09:01 AM) if you can ever find any of these, it is highly recommended; but it is rare to find out of state:  https://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/home
@  Holmboy : (17 April 2014 - 08:35 AM) The Yuengling will be flowing. If the BC2 servers are empty, we'll make them full!
@  Myelencephalous : (17 April 2014 - 08:18 AM) Oh, and a Slim Jim, of course - Holmboy has graciously notified us that this delicious treat is providing us with a 3 hour Double XP code!
@  Myelencephalous : (17 April 2014 - 08:14 AM) Bring beer tonight, boys!
@  Myelencephalous : (16 April 2014 - 10:29 AM) i'll toss it in tonight to see if enough servers still exist.  we should be ok though
@  Alpine gremlin : (16 April 2014 - 09:42 AM) Been so long since I`ve played BC2...and there are never any servers available on PC...
@  THE RED DRAGON : (16 April 2014 - 08:37 AM) great....now I wanna play vietnam lol
@  Holmboy : (16 April 2014 - 08:01 AM) Tomorrow, April 17th we'll be doing a "Thursday Throwback" on PS3 playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and it's Vietnam expansion. Dust off that PS3 and join us for some Destruction 2.0 starting around 6pm EDT (23:00 BST)!
@  Myelencephalous : (16 April 2014 - 07:18 AM) I'm going to download Stealth: A Clone in the Dark.  I love puzzles, so this should be silly fun for me
@  Holmboy : (16 April 2014 - 07:03 AM) After seing it at PAX East, I just had to pick up Goat Simulator on PC for $7.99. Sometimes you just need some simple, mindless fun. Baa-a-a-a!
@  Acerdavidii : (14 April 2014 - 08:29 AM) Tankers, latest WoT 360 update is here and it's a long one, be prepared. Also crews added for an extra level of confusion, woot!

- - - INTRODUCTION - - -

This guide is to help all understand how to set up FireTeams. FireTeams (from now on shortened to FT or FTs) are an important part of Brink's Team-play, although you wouldn't know it from any tutorial aspects in the game. They simply don't mention anything on FTs. Even though the process is remarkably simple, because there is no mention of it at all to the player, the system can easily go unnoticed. The key advantage to being in a FT is HUGE!

You can now use in game voice to interact with your teammates! Novel idea huh?


"Public VOIP" (Voice chat with your entire team during a match and everyone pre/post match) is an option in the game, but it has to be manually activated by the server as the option is deactivated by default... The option that is left ON by default is "Fireteam VOIP". So this is the more reliable way of having in-game voice chat...

Exhibit A

But MIND BULL3TS! I want to be able to voice chat with my entire team! Not just my "Fireteam!".... Whats a Fireteam anyway?

Well I have good news for you, person who randomly yelled at me when I was creating this thread... FTs seem to be uncapped as to how many players can be involved. I say this with a little ignorance as the largest FT I have is 5 but I wouldn't imagine them limiting it to anything other than 4 if they were going to limit it at all, since the team max is 8...


First while in a match press ESC to bring up the in game Menu, from there click the Scoreboard Button.

Exhibit B
Posted Image

Once at the Scoreboard screen, highlight the player you want to start a FT With (See Exhibit B for a guide to choosing desirable FTeammates) left click to open that player's menu.

Exhibit C
Posted Image

Once at the Player Menu click the second option entitled " Create fireteam with #Playername# "

Exhibit D
Posted Image
*note I used some image editing trickery to show the entire text of that option, it will scroll the entire length of the message in-game

This will send a Fireteam Invite to that player. Now using your "Fireteam VOIP" key you can voice chat with your FTeammates.

Exhibit E
Posted Image


I also know there is a way to request to join an existing FT. I know this not because I have done it myself, I literally have never seen a FT before I make one, but I have been "petitioned" to join by other players. It pops up as another message to press F1 and you "vote" to let them in. That being said I imagine the process is relatively similar to creating a FT, where the player clicks on a member of the existing FT and clicks something to the effect of "Ask to join Fireteam"...


Also, there was a setting overlooked by the devs for the Volume levels for VOIP in and out, the following commands will fix this issue:

s_volume_voipin_db 0
s_volume_voipout_db 0

These commands can be entered into the console directly during the game or placed before loading the game in your Autoexec.cfg file located here:

*Note If you don't already have one, create a notepad file named Autoexec.cfg there, open with notepad and paste...

Well I think I covered everything. Hope this helps build the teamwork lvl in Public Servers.
