I have a feeling support is going to be really good now that you can actually use the bipod properly.

Don't sleep on the MG34. With the bipod and upgrades the thing basically is a 100 round zero recoil squad wipe machine if you get it set up in the right spot. Even with the old bipod bugs the thing was probably my best gun since I don't have any of the higher level ones yet.

You get a 250 round belt with one of the MG42 specialization perks.

I'm hoping to get that unlocked in the next few days. I just got the Lewis gun which everyone seems to like but I didn't care for it.

Didn't complete the Tides of War for whatever gun was available. Does anyone know when the next one starts?

I’ve given up on the Tides of War. Will just play the game when I feel like it.

Looks like a helmet is this week's reward. Usually not worth grinding through for cosmetics unless you really like them.

I know I said I'm done with this game but it keeps pulling me back in. I wanted to check how it played after new update.

Got the new gun the Mas 44. I can't tell a difference from one gun to the next in this game. After opening up all specializations for this gun, it now plays like that AG 42.

The bipod action is much better.

The only ones I’ve really liked are the KE7 and the MG42/34. The perks for the KE7 make it a pretty good hip/shoulder fire gun, in addition to its real LMG role, with a smallish clip as the only real drawback. The MG42 with the extended belt, cooling, and control perks is a squad suppression/wipe beast, especially so with bipods fixed. Without perks I like the 34 more so than the 42, the 42 just burns ammo so fast, it seems like the belt is no bigger than the KE7

It lacks maps and game modes and basically stuff to level up, but it has the core gameplay that is so much fun.

There's just something that Battlefield games that other games don't.

I only really play when I have my IRL friends online to play with, but man when we get our full squad up it's so much fun.

It is alot ike Destiny, lacks the content but has good gunplay.

Tge weapons should have took longer to level up. Instead of 10 levels it could easily have been 18..then unlock weapon perks every 2 levels, and 18 the ability to respec.

February we are getting the Co-op mode.

March we get limited time Rush, Firestorm BR (assuming no delay), and should be a new map (could come in Feruary, I guess).

i dont like the one map releases... its so much better when you can have 4 new maps and just rotate between them until you are bored

with single map releases you either have to leave after every game to play it again (and this would get boring fast) or you have to play with older maps all the time

yep. 1 map every 2 months just isn't enough.

It is funny how little of the more important stuff devs push out. Maps for a shooter are most important Imo. Games like Forza push new cars and not tracks, tracks are more important.

Very annoying.

Not a developer, but I'm sure it's much easier to push these out than giant maps

Alright! No squad conquest for the new week. Now we have breakthrough which I prefer.

I heard a new map in March maybe 2 and it's in Greece.

Breaakthrough is just terrible. And the planes....the planes are just straight up dumb, annoying and terribly balanced.

Not sure I can endure much more.

Tides of War should just be score, class, gun, and equipment objectives. You should be able to play any mode you want.

This is why I love Battlefield. Notice the tank shell screaming past my head.

Yup, and I thought squad conquest was bad. Does this weeks ToW require you to play Breakout for every challenge too?

I am liking this game a lot more than Battlefield 1.

I do want to get back to the modern era though at some point.
