How many points does it give you to get a service medal for a class?

Picked this up for PS3 last night at walmart for $28. Struggling so far, after doing pretty well on the beta.

so i fired up BF3 for the first time today since the patch.

i enter a game and start shooting while using mouse/keyboard only to have my xbox 360 controller rumbling on my desk.

i look in the BF3 options for somewhere to turn off the rumble ...can't see it anywhere. kind of annoying.

so anyway, you can turn it off in your config file ...

Open "PROF_SAVE_profile" with wordpad, located in the Battlefield 3 settings folder in your documents library and search for "GstInput.Vibration 1" and changeit to 0, i had to do this after the patch because i couldn't find a option to turn it off in game.

just incase anyone else out there needs this.

Just got my copy last night and after a few games at the start where I went alright, I started getting drilled. any tips?

Also is it possible to remap the flying controls (for PS3), as i prefer to control yaw via the shoulder buttons? I've flown a little bit and didn't find the physics very hard at all but I find the controls aren't intuitive.

Gamespot had a preview on the expansion. Things they mentioned were

New game mode Conquest Assault

You unlock the new guns by completing 'assignments' which is basically get a certain number of kills with a type of gun and gadget.

A guy was driving like a pick up truck around wake island

And the destruction looks a lot better

I really hope they either get rid of the IRNV or nerf it into oblivion with the next patch, I can't stop using it because of how useful it is but at the same time its ugly and ruins parts of the gameplay.

Also Ive been playing HC mode all the time now since the patch, I think it feels like theres too much health in normal.

There's a crack out by Razor that allows exactly that. You can play with a legal copy but bypass Origin.

I'm in the same camp, what do you reckon they could do to nerf it?

Limit the range or something?

They need to take out the 12g frag for the shot guns it drives me crazy getting killed by a shot gun from across the map cause of that is ridiculous.

Same here.. The overview with it is just second to none. But it has flaws, the zoom is almost insignificant.

I tried to fly with my Xbox 360 controller plugged into my pc and it didn't seem to work.

My PC detected the controller, but when I tried to bind the keys in the game it didn't pick up anything.

I got a wireless controller with a charger wire just like in this pic :

a play and charge kit will only recharge the gamepad.

if you want to use your wireless gamepad on your pc, you need a wireless dongle ...

or buy a wired gamepad ...

The simple solution would be just to take it out which I would be all for, I dont know how its programmed or what is possible to change but there needs to be less contrast so things blend in a bit more. Its funny because I *****ed durring the beta about bush campers the irnv is money at spotting campers. Having said that though I dont care if it ads slower or has a reduced fov compared to other scopes its like having cheats!

2 annoying things


3 C4s should blow up ANY tank regardless of reactive armor (OP!!!!), its tough enough to sneak up to a tank. I dont think its fair that i need to reload and stick another 3 on the damn thing


also stupid flying machines, those should eliminated all together, waht kind of smart guy designed those into the game? you can kill people with them, how is taht fair at all. And you nerds taht train so hard to fly that thing correctly..
