New to BF3

After getting and enjoying BF4 I got BC2 and BF3 and I have to say that currently I'm enjoying BF3 more than BF4 right now - it just seems like a far better game. But I do have an issue, man do I suck at BF3!!


I'm not bad at BF4, I'm not gonna say I'm great or anything because, to be honest, I'm a pretty average player I reckon - lvl 60s, KD 1.12, good MBT commander, reasonable Helo pilot, decent Recon, Assault and Engineer player, nothing special.


But on BF3 I can't seem to get my game down right now, I know the game is different than BF4 so anyone got any tips for a reasonable BF4 player playing BF3? Anything significant differences I should be aware of and tips, hints, good weapon kits and loadouts to use?

Cheers :thumbup:

How to play BF3:

Use M16 or M416 with Ergo+Hbar. M416 is slightly more accurate at the cost of 50RPM less.

Bunny hop everywhere

Don't play Support

Don't bother bursting; ARs are so accurate with the heavy barrel from the start that you might as well not bother with FSM more than once. Actually, you can sometimes burst effectively. The M416 has 150m of effective range while microbursting thanks to this game's absurd Hbar.

Don't use any weapon not named the AS Val, M416, M16A3, SCAR-H, or M4.

Yeah, you should probably just play BF4 instead. BF3 is total garbage. Find a 40 or 60Hz BF4 server and enjoy actually getting damage not given across a single frame.

LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up.

Bunny hop everywhere... yeah I noticed that was a tactic.

I do play the M4/M16, haven't unlocked the 416 yet. (yes I am that low leveled right now)

I play on PS3 bro, I can't sort servers by refresh rate.

That's because the PS3 is too antiquated to have anything more than 30Hz.

You might want to try the pdw-r, it's a very nice weapon with great hipfire.
