Getting it Done.

I only played 5 rounds of scavenger last night so it's a little early for me to say best DLC yet.

I will say this however, the maps are very well done and the scavenger game mode is definately a breath of fresh air. First impression is that it's head and shoulders above the last two DLCs.

One other thing...NO BLUE TINT!!!

I am really enjoying this DLC... I think it is the best one so far

One thing I did notice last might was while playing a round of TDM spawns weren't shifting. The way the system works for TDM there are 4 spawn zones each with four fixed spawn points. The zones rotate periodically during the game to make it feel random. Last night my entire team kept spawning on the same spawn point hte entire game. It was the first time I have ever seen a TDM game get spawn locked. I'm sure this is something that can be easilly fixed.

Overall the DLC is amazing. The crossbow has a nice balance to it, very situational and not over powered at all. Map design is great and just a lot of fun. Good job on this one DICE. Now fix the TDM spawns.

I have to say aftermath looks pretty good. Hope so after the dissapointment of armored kill.

I'll have to check it out then. Armored kill forced me to find a new hobby.

If you like maps like Grand Bazaar, Seine Crossing, or Strike at Karkand you'll enjoy Aftermath. Much more infantry focused. The only air vehicles are little birds.

I don't like jets, probably because I suck with em.

Reboot your system. Run the repair from inside Origin. Download again as a last resort.

I figured it out. I logged on and it downloaded a big patch. That big patch was not Aftermath. YAH FOR ORIGIN!! So I had to update the AM patch for it to download it.

BF3 is one of the best shooter games ever. Have you already tried Aftermath?

Play it? hahahha. Seriously just play it. Launch, pick a server and play. Did you get all the expansions? I'm more of an Infantry guy and loving Aftermath. If you like vehicles and that sort of stuff play Large Conquest modes. Pick a class and just level up to unlock guns and addons. I play hardcore mode depends what you like to play. Sorry BF3 does not push porn like WoW.

I bought the premium edition that says has 5 expansions included. Not sure if I should buy the weapon and equipment addons.

PLAY. When I stopped playing, no one gun was OP, so as a newbie, you're on the level of almost everyone else.

The real separator is optics. Any gun with optics is more accurate than any other gun without, so pick a weapon you like and stick with it to unlock all of its goodies.

No gun is OP is true. It all comes down to what you like in the weapon you have. A gun that shoots fast, or hits hard, or is more long range etc...

I am going to try it without any weapon addons and start grinding for them. It should be fun. How does the group thing works should I give you my Origin ID?

I think I only have KrisN on my list.

No one plays BF3 for the single player--it sucks royally since it tries to be a COD clone as a scripted shooters. MP is much better.

Unless you8 get a hacker on. I played a round of Metro this AM. Sniper made 158 kills in one round. Unreal.

I just played for like 20 mins(didn't do any wow, I was so tired) last night so I wanted to get a feel of the controls and the overall game.

I really liked what I felt looking forward to get into MP this weekend, hopefully with DSLR folks.

Also WTF with a web page launching the game.
