Been using the iron sight bolt-action rifles, great fun dropping people with those :D

Also unlocked that Russian assault rifle, Jesus you can just cut fuckers in half with it!!

I prefer to use the infantry variants of the single action rifles. Just feels more authentic. The marksman versions are good if you need a little magnification but want to avoid scope going giving you away.

My favourite rifle is the Lebel infantry though if I'm sniping things. It's got a real punchy sound to it.

Two new maps are up and playable, both set in Gallipoli. To unlock one of the new weapons you need 10 revives in a round, I've never seen so many medics actually playing the intended role :lol:

Both maps are good but nothing spectacular.

i love the new maps, especially Achi BaBa - a lot of effort gone into that map when you stop to admire it. i like Cape Helles a lot too but that more for the mode than anything else. The next two im looking forward to a lot. If zeebrugge is anything like its real world inspiration it'll be a great map to play.

The Zeebrugge map seems to be a long narrow island for infantry combat surrounded by a large sea area for ships. There's also a mini zeppelin gunship available, basically it's the Apache helicopter of the game.

have you had a chance to try out the new elite (infiltrator) yet? its a lot of fun, the grenade launcher is superb and the artillery bombardment flare gun is a great laugh when you get into a good position to properly shell a point being heavily captured. You also get a sawed off shotty and the spawn beacon, not to mention you move slightly faster than other soldiers. Its all a little OP but balanced somewhat by the health being quite low for an elite.

You can get it on Cape Helles at point E in the bunker. Dunno where it spawns in the Achi baba map though.

I'm at level 50 now and have only managed to pick up an elite kit maybe 6 or 7 times in total so I don't expect to have a go of it anytime soon. I've also never driven either of the French tanks and only been in a fighter once. Every fucko makes a mad scramble for the good stuff so I rarely get a chance to try it out.

My experience of them is that whenever I get something cool a series of enemies will immediately make it their mission to kill me within 30 seconds so I don't really get a chance to learn how to use it properly.

Most fun I had with one so far was defending the final point of the operation in the forest and it gave us a flamethrower kit. I fried a good number of enemies on that round before they took me out.

I've managed to get the big sentry kit a couple of times and gone hog wild. Cleared out an entire bunker of all the stragglers during an operation. The Trench Raider drives me fucking insane, I've seen one decimate an entire trench line all the while being hosed with lead.

those are properly tanky though - they can take a fair amount of damage

God I love this game. So many epic games in the last few days. Been nabbing the infiltrator kit on cape helles and it's an amazing feeling calling in artillery support into a flag being capped and watching it utterly decimate the trench area from afar all the while shotgunning feckers running away from it in panic.

This game is just amazing wish more of you here played it :D

Still plugging away at this myself, hit rank 70 yesterday. Managed to get a 200+ metre headshot with an iron sight rifle as well, I think the guy walked into the bullet :lol:

Still haven't managed to get the Infiltrator kit, people seem to sit on the kit box until it spawns which is wank.

Finally unlocked the Hellriegel for assault kit, but since this isn't CoD I won't be using it much. I hate how one gun is allowed to be so unbalanced and appears to be better than most submachine guns you see even in modern shooters. Cuntriegel more like :x

My best tip for getting that is to grab the first plane and fly straight to E on cape helles. Either that or camp it out yourself.

Had a gr3at moment earlier with this where I got to the box on E slightly slower than an enemy player. Followed him right in watched him change followed his out where he paused at the door and knifed the fucker.

He was spitting feathers in the chat about me hacking and how I got there so quick :lol:

Have hit level 10 on the 4 main classes now. The Martini-Henry rifle for the scout is just awesome. It goes off like a miniature cannon and knocks the bejesus out of enemies, great fun.

The 2 New maps should be out in the next week or so, can't wait.
