and of course i scarfed them up, despite the fact that i have no time to play them. blackhawk is alot of fun though, since i did waste the afternoon playing it instead of working on my VVS project like i should have done.

Anyone know how to get your weapon to fire semi-auto? Help mentions nothing, and niether do the manuals. Just wondered.

also they had the original call of duty for 19.95 (7 bucks cheaper than EB), and the MS train sim for 9.95. Just thought you guys might wanna know.

Sure was fun hosing those technicals wiht a .50 and a minigun....pretty immersive. Needs more blood and guts though.

depending on what your weapon is capable of, you may toggle through semi, full auto, or mk 203 grenade launcher by pressing 3 (but mk 203s are n00b, online)

1 knife
2 pistol
3 main weapon
4 flashbangs
5 frags
6 smoke
7 clays, AT-4s or satchel charge
8 detonator
9 medic first aid kit

some servers enable auto-range finder for sniper rifles; this is good for more rapid tgt aquisition, but can louse you up with intervening objects in the way to your tgt, or through chain link fences, etc

most ppl use M-14s, as they have great reload speed, and just sound cool

i prefer the barrett for shorter to medium range-type maps, and go for the .300 magmun tactical for those 1.2 km shots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

cqb's are best with knifework
medics run fastest
snipers snipe (duh!)
gunners are slow, but FN MAGs, M 60s and AT-4s make up for it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

as cqb i find the G-3 is best, but watch yourself with 20 rd magazine, may get in a tight spot at wrong time

as a gunner, M-60s rule!

try the OCS, SFG, NATO servers for general mayhem...they are easy to find at nova world, they are easily the most populated

lots of specialist sniper servers, too

nova world's own server are quite popular also, and have stats

more challenging for snipers there too, as tracers are on, making your "sneaky son-of-a-b i t c h" tactics risky, when a tracer reveals your location

online WAY different than stupid AI, be careful, be prepared to be royally owned at first http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

and oh, online, never ever ever use emplaced weapons unless you wanna die real quick

oh, and make sure you dont have any manuals on the discs, explore them, some are packaged with bonus 3rd party manuals and strategy guides http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

oh cool...thanx for the info. It sure would have been handy if they had put that info in the manual. seems to be alot of stuff for it out there. dueling with those technicals from a hummer is alot of fun. I love it when their bodies go flying thru the air when they blow up.

I also tried out the rainbow 6 game....MAN..that is extensive. got a good training program. You can sure tell tom clancy was behind this thing. Now its got blood and guts. A benelli shot gun at close range is pretty , uh, messy. I love shooting out the windows in the training bldg. I think im gonna like being a sniper in both sims.
