@  Dbl Incertion : (30 March 2015 - 10:11 AM) BTW I made about 3 million $ and leveled up to 87 in like 2 days by using objective boost during the dbl xp event and driving the cars in Hotwire. Its rediculously lopsided how much money and XP you get driving or being a passenger in those cars. Even with out dbl xp/money. Anyway its also an easy way to get to operator Tier 4 10 times as part of the .300 blackout unlock.
@  Dbl Incertion : (30 March 2015 - 10:07 AM) Yea BMT those vids were sweet. I need to catch up on Nightfall series. But halo is shaping up to be a all new epic. Turning on the big dog seems a bit too pedestrian but they made it look awesome. Cant wait for it to come out. Disrelated news. BFH is the birth child of CoD and BF. Their biggest map feels like half the size of back to karkand. But its still fun and has its BF moments. I bought the season pass im sure its worth it this time around.... Maybe... and if not 10.27.2015!!!!
@  dukebdfan980 : (30 March 2015 - 08:45 AM) My first attempt at a youtube video. The audio isn't great, I'll need to find a better way of recording for the next one. Likes, comments, and constructive criticism are all appreciated.  https://youtu.be/-7iecqTNtAY
@  cbaker96 : (30 March 2015 - 07:23 AM) I will be buying Hardline today...ready for a new game.  I can honestly say that I am considering buying an Xbox just for Halo...I seriously have a sickness!
@  TheBMT : (29 March 2015 - 10:16 PM) annnnnnd I just had a halo-gasm from those new live action trailers.  So stoked, esp after watching Nightfall two days ago with Locke in it.  Prob the only series that will get me to buy the Xbox1
@  Andrew6679 : (29 March 2015 - 09:24 PM) Haha that's so awesome!
@  TheBMT : (29 March 2015 - 05:45 PM) Sooo in small world news.  One of my employees asks me if I ever heard of Battlestrats.  Turns out her bf recognized me on Facebook from me being on here when my profile pic worked.
@  Myelencephalous : (29 March 2015 - 05:44 PM) I am now a proud of 2 PS4's.   One is updating, the other is being sent to Sony for fixing.
@  Michrulejj : (29 March 2015 - 05:22 PM) I'll be honest with this review. BFH, it is different. I can see how people will either Love it or absolutely hate it.  I personally think it's a nice change, and can see how it could have tons of potential if you run with a full squad or a team that actually plays the objective.  I will also say I have not lagged or been D'ced yet on BFH, which compared to how BF4 was, sells it for me.  haha  My honest opinion and knowing you, you will rage and get very mad but I would suggest you getting it.  I enjoy it.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (29 March 2015 - 03:10 PM) Can I get a few honest reviews of Battlefield: Hardline from you guys? I am debating picking it up; it looks like a lot of fun but I've been hearing mixed reviews.
@  Michrulejj : (29 March 2015 - 02:15 PM) Also @THE RED DRAGON How was the process of getting your PS4?  May order a Xbox One later today.  Just want to know how did it go.
@  Michrulejj : (29 March 2015 - 11:44 AM) Does anyone know if Platoons on Battlelog still have the 100 Member cap?  Just curious as there are not separate platoons for Hardline.
@  THE RED DRAGON : (28 March 2015 - 10:34 PM) nice DBM!
@  DBMgamer : (28 March 2015 - 09:15 PM) Holy crap I'm #4 on Destiny's Reddit site:  https://lh3.googleus...7-no/Reddit.JPG
@  THE RED DRAGON : (28 March 2015 - 04:30 PM) <p>I had something similar happen early on with XBO - like DBM said - try a hard reset first. &nbsp;It fixed my prob</p>
@  DBMgamer : (28 March 2015 - 04:22 PM) Have you tried a Hard reset?  I think if you hold the Power button for 30 second the PS4 will beep and reset.  I know this worked for me on the PS3, but I've not needed to try it on PS4
@  Myelencephalous : (28 March 2015 - 03:55 PM) I need help guys - my PS4 stopped feeding video to any monitor/TV.  I've tried multiple HDMI cables, multiple TV's.  My PS3 runs perfectly fine with all HDMI cables and HDMI jacks, so those are not the issue.  The only thing I can say is that it must be the receiving jack on the console.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  I'm trying to avoid having to send it to Sony.
@  THE RED DRAGON : (28 March 2015 - 01:04 PM) Gamefly said they shipped it Mon....its Sat....mail just ran...no bloodborne :(
@  Andrew6679 : (28 March 2015 - 12:06 PM) Did anyone else pick up Bloodborne? How are you liking it? I thihnk I'd give it a 9.5/10
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 March 2015 - 12:36 PM) Yea its a good deal!
@  TheBMT : (25 March 2015 - 11:25 AM) lmao @DBL... id be there with ya if I had the cash.  That xbox 1 Halo version is awfully tempting right now.
@  Dbl Incertion : (25 March 2015 - 10:23 AM) BMT - Pre paid for the silly $250 edition of halo 5 because im that excited for it.
@  Andrew6679 : (25 March 2015 - 10:15 AM) Is anyone here still playing Black Ops 1 like I am?
@  smokelessforman : (24 March 2015 - 09:51 PM) tip on the mac-10.  do team death match, walk 20 feet and place cameras at your spawn around choke points.  got 3 coins in 5 matches in TDM.  2 coins the rest of the day on blood money.  they have to fix the cameras.  very frustrating.
@  TheBMT : (23 March 2015 - 08:21 PM) soooo no chatter bout the teaser trailer of Halo 5?
@  Michrulejj : (23 March 2015 - 09:49 AM) Getting Hardline later today or tomorrow.  Hopefully some of the PS guys take a small break from Destiny and we could squad up.

Had a thought and put it in the shoutbox but wanted to hear what you all thought....

How cool would it be if you could adjust your "Zero" or point of aim/point of impact in game? I think it would make shooting adjustments at ranges much easier, but you could only do it say when spawning or something. Has dice ever said what they use for a zero?

Anyways, maybe theres a way to graph it out, I mean if they can calculate muzzle velocity based on attatchments and how it affects bullet drop in game, I would think that this wouldnt be too hard to do. Maybe the calculations in a multi player game would smash servers from having to track all that, I dont know, just a thought.

I would love to see optics with adjustments, but to be honest the gameplay is too fast to use it effectively as its used in real world. Changing the zero is not a bad idea but with out a range finder it is still kinda useless.

The Mill dot scope is your best bet in the game as it allows you quickly range and sight in targets, then from there it is all trial and error and practice to get to be an expert which make it more of a challenge.

I can remember playing a hunting game on the PC years ago and had a drop chart for all the weapons. It was awesome getting the super long shots.

There are very accurate ballistic charts for all the weapons and ammo used in the game. If they don't already use them I can't imagine that it would be that hard to replace the data they use with the actual ballistic data. I have only played the Beta for BF3 (and watched many youtube videos) but it does not look like they include windage in the bullet travel. I would also like them to add a range finder. You don't do any real world long distance shooting with out it.

You can do this in Red Orchestra 2. Every time you kill someone, it tells you the distance of the kill to help players learn to estimate distance, and you have distance-adjustable sights that function exactly the way their real-world counterparts did.



I'd find you an example of the adjustable scopes, too, but YouTube is being dumb for me. Sniper rifles can also use their ironsights even if there's a scope attached, just like in real life (at least, that's how it worked back then).

RO2 is a very very unforgiving non-hand-holding shooter, though. People say you can't play Battlefield like you play Call of Duty - RO is even further in that direction; you can't play RO like you play BF.

See, it can be done. As far as real life goes, firefights tend to happen pretty quickly, and aiming down sights is aiming down sights. I can look at a man sized sillouhette down range and tell how far away it is, close enough to put steel on target anyways so thats not the issue for me. Maybe just have a buddy stand against a wall in a private match as I move further and further away. Find Poa/Poi that way.

Ya in the old school gaming work.. DELTA FORCE 2 and DELTA FORCE BLACK HAWK DOWN. I used to be a top sniper because I could snipe from ANY point on the map and do it spot on. They had a build in rang finder in the scope its-self. You could start aiming down rang and as you moved ur scope up or down it would tell you how far u had to make the shot. But you would have to use TWO keys on the Key board to adjust your signs Up-Down or Right-Left for wind speed. Made sniping a very deadly tool in the team and you could do it very fast. But this concept is NO GOOD on PS3 or X-BOX because of the amount of keys used and the amount you have to use. Its all give and take. You would have to give up something to make the keys do other things. That will never happen. PC maybe... but not on PS3 or X-BOX. Unless they make some MAJOR changes to the sniper and when you have the scope up the button layout changes to allow it to happen. Like FRAG and Sec. FLASH turns to the range adjusters.. I dunno. Maybe someday but not today =P

In BFBC2 and in BF3 they have a thing called marksman bonus. I am sure everyone already knows about this. But just in case the marksman bonus is a bonus you get from head shots at any distance. One point per meter your bullet travels. Very good at remembering ranges. If you have a good eye and can judge distance (yes I realize I am talking video game distances. lol ) you can figure the bullets drop and range of that from the marksman bonus and your own elevation from the target. At least that is what I use when sniping from insane distances. It is all about trial and error. Once I know the distance I can normally land hits from said range on a constant basis.

Ya same here.. I was pulling off some awesome shots even with the 4x scope.. that quickly became my scope of choise. Just have to watch whats going on and it will get easyer to judge as u get more exp with the game.
