It will provide new vehicles, and larger maps than Close Quarters. With a few maps hinted by DICE as being the biggest map in Battlefield history. Armoured Kill will bring new vehicles in the MBT category and mobile artillery to the field. More information will come later. [highlight]Endgame[/highlight] [b]Released: [/b]Winter 2012 [b]What is it?[/b] Not the slightest clue at all. DICE haven't given any information out about the content of the DLC. We can only clench our buttocks and wait in anticipation. [h2]Useful Tools:[/h2] Some friendly fellows called Realmware have created some lovely application to make BF3 more [I]you[/I]. A settings editor to get at settings the game doesn't normally allow, a standalone Battlelog browser for when you don't want to start your main browser, and a fullscreen-windowed mode tool to remove borders. Check them out; [url="http://bf3.realmware.co.uk/settings-editor/"]Settings Editor[/url] [url="http://bf3.realmware.co.uk/battlelog-standalone/"]Standalone Battlelog[/url] [url="http://bf3.realmware.co.uk/borderless/"]Borderless Windowed "Fullscreen"[/url] Dj-j3 also created a borderless program, that works on any programs you have running. So you can make whatever you want not have those pesky close buttons!

Why, why, WHY do developers continue to think that putting a sniper in a video game is a good idea? It's about as good of an idea as sticking my dick in lava.
why cant we turn HDR off?
Oh, if anyone notices any strange things in the OP, or thinks anything is missing. Feel free to tell/ bitch at me through PMs, I'll fix it, then stick what I've got on a dropbox file for future threads.
Is it bad that I only want this game to troll enemies by baiting tanks with C4?
Why is the B2K info in the OP shitty ? How about putting screenshots, not renders.
[QUOTE=Woovie;34498628]Why is the B2K info in the OP shitty ? How about putting screenshots, not renders.[/QUOTE] I haven't really had time to go info hunting. This is based off the last OP I fixed up. I'll probably get proper images in a little while mind. Never crossed my mind when I was updating it.
A sniper with a Holo + Str Bolt Pull. AWESOME [editline]1st February 2012[/editline] also - does anyone have the official changelist for that update?

Me wants more maps I honestly think the BF2 ones were more interesting
I was unlucky enough to be playing against this guy: [url]http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/soldier/Andi788/stats/363845548/pc/[/url] Just look at those stats. 100 x Combat Efficiency Medals. :suicide:
[QUOTE][img]http://i.imgur.com/aRWzx.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Really ought to change that. Because it doesn't even remotely look like Karkand.
I cant wait for more DLC
you meant MAV right
[QUOTE=Saza;34499455]you meant MAV right[/QUOTE] Nope, OP is referring to the amazing glitch that sends the LAV flying across the map at ridiculous speed.
Oh. Okay. I was confused for a sec
[QUOTE=Chubbs;34499030]Make sure to use the FXAA Injector and such when taking the screenshots, too.[/QUOTE] I can't actually run BF3 right now, I couldn't get my gaymen PC up to Uni. So if anyone wants to beautify the OP a bit, please, feel free to take some nice shots, name them if you want, and PM me the details. You'll be credited for it.
Lose connection for 1 millisecond = You were kicked from the game...
Oh my. We need a fourth group. There are two spots open in Group #3
[QUOTE=GeneralSpecific;34499544]Nope, OP is referring to the amazing glitch that sends the LAV flying across the map at ridiculous speed.[/QUOTE] do tell.
Applied for the third group.
Is it me or is the G553 really fucking weak? I end up using more ammo aiming on the torso than if I was using any other SMG (well, I mostly tried the ak, m4 and a-91)
Lol, apparently I'm better at CQB with the L85A2 using the 12x ballistic scope and not the ironsights.
so apparently saying "nig" in chat, on accident is racist. What the fuck.
I wish they'd make Recon limited in some way, I hate it when my team is FULL of useless cunthole snipers. I want VOIP back. Carriers and airstrips should repair vehicles. I hate having to rely on engineers or myself to repair my heli, and landing a jet once disabled is impossible.

The lag in this game for me is ridiculous. I get 60+ fps most of the time so I know it isn't my computer and this is the only game that my internet causes lag. It makes it impossible to play either I'm lagging in game making me crash a plane into the ground or I get disconnected and half of the time the reason is "something went wrong" that message right there is infuriating
