It is that time again folks. Battlefield 3 has just launched in the US, with a release coming to Europe at the end of this week. We do this every time a new COD or BF game comes out, and we are after your game-winning best weapons and equipment setups again.
If you are a stranger to the way it works, simply take a read through our previous ‘best weapon threads’ – you’ll find the Black Ops one here, Modern Warfare 2 here and of course, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 here.
Now that you are up to speed, we want you to list your favorite weapon setup, which is proving to be quite useful in game. Obviously, we are well aware that many of you are yet to play the game, but most of you would have played the beta anyway, plus we take into consideration the fact that a lot of gamers managed to pick up Battlefield 3 early due to street date leaks.
We’re guessing that the M16 assault rifle will be a popular choice for many of you, given its ease of use as well as its excellent all-rounder capabilities and very decent accuracy. Once you unlock the M416 though, you may decide that this is a better fit for you.
Other choices that most of you may be opting for is the cult favorite – the G36c. This weapon equipped with the silencer and holographic is deadly to say the least, and you’ll probably find yourself towards the top of the leaderboard once you master this weapon. Don’t forget, spraying will not get you anywhere with the game – just like Bad Company 2, short accurate bursts is the most ideal way to take out an enemy. The best part of having your silencer equipped is that you can just find your favorite spot and take out easy prey with minimum hassle. There’s plenty of dirty spots in Battlefield 3 to suit your needs.
Do you think you have a better weapon than the M16 or G36c? List your favorite setup as well as equipment using our standard formula as seen in our previous weapon threads. I’ll be updating this with my winning setup once I have got to grips with the game a bit more.
UPDATE: So here’s my update as promised guys. I am focusing on the Recon class now and as many have already pointed out on various forums, the SKS is pretty powerful to say the least. Two shots and the enemy is down, and it’s an auto-rifle! I find myself spending more time in tanks these days though, as some of the later unlocks are incredible. Right now I have Reactive Armor, Thermal Optics and Canister shell – you are basically untouchable in the tanks with this setup and the right tactics, and since the Thermal Optics let you see everything, you can rack up your kill count easy. Let’s just put it this way, whoever rides in the tank with me is guaranteed a score of like 4,000 alone – not too bad at all! Are you a tank lover as well?
