Topic: Red Crucible / M82 and helis?

Was it just 5? Yeah don’t remember exactly…but I did it regularly! I probably included the average misses too or something.
So then what’s the deal now? It’s not possible, or is there another technique? 3 damage? So you’d have to hit the thing 33 times?!

Topic: Red Crucible / M82 and helis?

I’ve been too busy to play this since February…and now there’s a bunch of new things happening. Is there anywhere that explains the updates a little?

For right now:

What’s the status with armored vehicles and specifically helis now?
Used to be that I could put about 10 rounds from a M82 into a heli and take it down.
I counted as high as 23 rounds into one and nothing happened. Can you not take down armored things with the sniper rifles anymore?

Topic: Red Crucible / Sand Storm: Hacking? Cheating? Fair Play?

Apparently the level is that number in parentheses next the names? It seems I’m level 7. It will be very interesting to se this learning curve jump suddenly in level 8!
In a good 5 games I played on Island X today, and while I understand that tactically, the red side is at a huge disadvantage, but with 8 players on my team…all level 6 or 7…we got defeated 50pts, to anywhere from 3pts to 11pts for us. Between 30pts to the highest being 42pts, from one guy in a heliI, a couple of times in one sitting, but at the most 3 return trips. Literally 15 minutes of him just killing everything — invisible 95% of the time. Who knows, maybe everyone there earned their stripes in non heli dominant maps like me, so they just couldn’t pull it off!
Anyway, was pretty nuts — and kind of ridiculous. On another note, is there a general discussion and feedback forum, for general questions and glitches encountered, and general tips etc.? Is there some guide explaining things, like spawning, this distance thing et., purchases etc., or is this forum the answers?

Ah. Interesting.
Seems like an counterintuitive phenomenon to have on a bad connection — to have hyper fast moving vehicles. I’d expect some chop, not mind-numbing speed! Certainly is entertaining. I wonder what the world looks like from their perspective.

I did set my viewing distance to max, but like you say, it still doesn’t help after a certain point. Seems like a slightly unfair “glitch”! I mean, the viewing distance cutoff should be the same for the heli somehow…as I definitely get the impression some guys have a good feel for how far away to stay, and it’s literally a nonstop barrage of hellfire coming out of thin air! I’m pretty good with the helis overall, but clearly there’s a problem if a guy can consistently rack up 30-50 kills against more than enough guys to take him down at SOME point! Again, certainly makes for some entertaining challenges. I do try the spawn technique — though that only last a few seconds as I can tell. No? It’s movement, not timeframe? I hit newly spawned guys all the time it seems, because it tells me — and there’ll be guys just sitting there on rapid fire — I guess till the spawn window expires?

The wall thing I’ve also only seen a couple times — in the bridge in Autobahn. Why exactly someone would find just sitting in there for 20 minutes just killing 50 people interesting, I don’t know.

Nametag was absolutely during the game. The first time I saw it was when I got killed, and so after that I was in a bush watching some fighting for a bit, and there were 3 guys with those little gun tanks with red tags (my side), but they were the blue team. It was super confusing. Of course I didn’t know who to help, and wound up getting missile attack in my face. I saw a few more instances — and between that and the schizo tanks, I left.

So then when you see people referencing cheats or hacks or whatever, what are they doing? Should I be looking out for things to report or something?

Thanks for the info!

Topic: Red Crucible / Sand Storm: Hacking? Cheating? Fair Play?

Hey all. I’m new to this game…and while it’s a lot of fun…after seeing this post I’m now curious about hacks etc. I’ve definitely seen some weird stuff…mostly in Autobahn and A LOT in Island. Like tanks that move back and forth SUPER fast, and helis that disappear — and I could swear sometimes people kind of jump around. I’ve also seen people inside walls killing everyone and being totally untouchable.
But mostly the insane tanks and disappearing helis…especially in sandstorm and island. Is that a game issue, or a cheat, or an enhancement you can buy? I mean it’s hard enough getting a heli, let alone if it’s invisible! I just spent a coupe of hours mostly on Island…and there were a few instances of guys just flying around the red base racking up 40+ kills against a good 10 people…over and over and over. I also saw instances where I’m POSITIVE that the blue team members…aside from being in the crazy tanks…also had the red name tag thing above their tank…like your own team has…but then they killed me because I ignored them. When I looked at the stats, sure enough, they were on the blue team. Weird.
Anyway…I don’t really see that much dialogue or info about this game online anywhere…so I couldn’t find any answers. Any ideas?

Topic: Red Crucible / GUNS FOR NOT-PAYING PLAYERS

Both points are good. Would be nice to rack up points towards getting something…and in the mean time, not wind up in games where half the people have some fancy gear and you last 4 seconds. On the other hand I did purchase the L1A1 Sniper rifle…and I have to say it is NOT true to its specs…relative to the default M16 sniper. It’s NOT as mobile, has minimally more power, and is NOT more accurate, as it has way more recoil. Looking back, I could have rented it, but some of them you can’t. So now there’s no way I’ll waste any points or money buying anything if the specs are inaccurate.
