BASH 144: BC2 Strats 101
Written by jockyitch   
Friday, 16 April 2010

This week, we talk BFBC2 strats with competitive players Martin (nKm) and Paul (Ston3r) from Rush-zone.com . We try to scratch the surface of what is a complex topic and summarize the early ideas being formulated by team captains across the BC2-universe.

 


We delve into recent trends like Medic-Trains and we question the use of Conquest as a viable competitive gametype. The recent Dignitas win at i39 is held up as a good early example of sound tactical play.

We make a short list of the best weapons to use in BFBC2 and we also take a look at nerdy topics like BC2 configs, mouse-smoothing scripts.
