Kit switching

This topic is veeeeeryyy obscure, but this is an issue that Dice need to sort out.
Anyway, remember the quick kit switching in previous BF games? I think that needs to come back. People in BC2 would pick up your Medic kit and revive you because of the fast time to switch kits, but this is not the case now. It just takes too long!!! :wacko:

It's pretty quick, I've knifed people and switched kits nearly simultaneously. I switch kits constantly, too, especially if I'm having a game where I'm doing exceedingly well, to change up the pace - and to kill someone who I have a nemesis ribbon against with their own kit :P Usually I'll just switch out to drop a ammo box and switch back, or drop a TUGS / beacon and revert, unless I like the set-up.

It's very common (for me, at least) to switch out to assault and revive my squad / team mates, however, I always look for a assault kit from the other team, because I don't want to stick someone with an M39 or an SKS if they aren't accustomed to it.

The most enjoyable aspect of kit switching is with recon to support, either using a jihad jeep with a recon / support hybrid, or using a big boy LMG with the recons' pipe cleaner arms; I always wonder what's going through peoples heads when they see that on the kill cam.

I agree.
Have them put it in the DICE report.


I say what I want to say and I do what I want to do.
There is no in between.
People will either love you for it or hate you for it.

Riesig seems like the type of person that would jack off in public and think nothing of it.
He does. And people join him anyways.
What, NO!

And then later:

Fapping and lifting 5 gallons of water is dumb.

Also, because i'm skinny asian.


My worst fear is not being able to make any more threads.

It doesnt take that long to switch kits and revive. Should probably take longer actually.

This may be a personal thing.

Kit switching - revive with your kit while I switch so I get mine back... that's exploiting a glitch.

I'd say the delay feels better. I do want a separate key, or more intuitive way to do it. As I sometimes mash the reload button, I do not want to pick it up, but I do! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

The only thing I hate about kit switching is that you still appear as if playing your previous role in the bottom left squad indicator, you could easily pick up an engineer kit but there is still that medic cross beside your name...

I do wish it would be a little quicker... How am I supposed to do bad ass action movie moments if I pick up someones kit 2 seconds too slowly?

This one time, I was an engi with an rpg and I switched kits with a dead assault. It turned out that it glitched so I had both defibs AND an rpg. Shit was cash.
