I think CQ was the worst dlc, it was a bad version of COD that did not receive any support from DICE.

If anyone wondering, once to unlock the explosive bolt, to switch between regular and explosive, press "v" while having the xbow out.

Played a couple of the maps last night in conquest mode, TDM, and scavenger. I really like how the new maps are laid out. There's some great combat to be had from long range to short range. I think they are the best maps yet as far as infantry combat. Many options for different routes, vertical spaces, and lots of hiding places and cover. It's really what CQ maps should have been, bigger, but with lots of places for close engagements.

The vehicles are nice, but not overpowered due to the broken up streets and tight spaces. Two RPG's will take one out.

So far the maps beat Bazzar, Metro, Seine my previous favorite infantry small infantry maps by a long shot.

Yeh I agree, and those were previously my favorite maps too. It really is what I was hoping for out of CQ.

well the bow is not a 24/7 assault rifle that you can grind away with for years. more like a cool gimmicky type of weapon that has its own peculiarities. it actually is surprisingly hard to get headshots with it. you unlock it for the medic class by winning 3 scavenger rounds.

anyone grinding away at Aftermath should definitely try the VAL. I sang this gun's praises many months ago during deathmatch gameplay at maps like Noshahar canals, but this gun absolutely CRUSHES at the new maps. The recoil is easily manageable, and you can take on multiple enemies smoothly. I am amazed more people are not using it. Many times I have killed 3 enemies without reloading, one after the other. Be smart with the kinds of engagements you partake in, but anything from close range to medium is child's play.
Make sure to have the ammo perk in your squad and/or be support class because it chews through ammo like crazy. I use it with the Kobra scope and obviously extended mags. I don't know how the damage spread is, but it basically feels like a more powerful P90

I think it has the same damage as the assualt rifles at medium/long range.

So I think the spread is something like 20-18.4.

scavenger mode is more fun than I expected, perhaps because of limited ammo or because you get such a good range of weapons to try out. Could also be that everybody starts with pistol. Love the map layouts so far, good range and detail.

Not a fan of scavenger myself, but the maps are great. I really wish BF3 had a version of Rush with no respawns, and that once the objectives are blown, you then respawn. That would be esports material imo.

Loving the maps. Been playing this again. Every time I come back I wonder why I left to try other games.

I'll have to try out the VAL as suggested. I tried it in the past and wasn't my cup of tea. But I've notice a lot of my deaths are at it's hands. So I should give it a go again.

The AS Val is a great weapon with the extended mag and an optic. It really gives some different play style options to your classes. It's not the best gun, but probably the best gun that is available to all the different classes. Shoot in bursts. It's low recoil makes it very accurate.

I keep trying the AS VAL but it ALWAYS lets me down and never comes out on top in a close quarter encounter, and theres no long range accuracy to be had. I've not unlocked the extended mag yet so its easy to spend 21 rounds and then get shot by the next guy coming through the door. And it seems to have no stopping power???

The F2000 and the M16A3/4 is where its at. They are tough to beat in close to mid encounters.

The Val actually has excellent long range accuracy, it has no spread for the first couple of bullets that you fire.

The hipfire sucks though, and I think it has the highest movement penalty of all AR/PDWS.

Been doing the old assignments: LSAT, UMP45, SKS, and started the MTAR one. All on metro and Armoured Kill.
LSAT= awful. My best results were just spraying from the hip at point blank because it is inaccurate. randomly charged whole groups and did well occasionally because they did not expect it.
UMP45= Decent. But slow rate of fire makes it hard to go up against fast weapons. Very easy with the Kobra sight to get headshots.
SKS= Very good weapon for close quarters.
MTAR= Almost no recoil. Easy to use.
EDIT: And finally got the rambo one. 5 multikills is surprisingly easy if you know how to farm it.

You're right, almost all the Assault class rifles are better as well as the other class specific weapons. It's probably the best PDW of the bunch though if used right. I use it when I want to play support without a LMG or recon without a sniper rifle. I always use the class weapons when playing assault or engineer as they are better.

So do weapons from other expansion packs carry over to current ones? I don't have AF but I've seen people have xbow... or is it an unlock of sorts?

Went to log in today and play a bit and it told me I had to do a 3.8GB update. Just finished updating and have been trying to connect to a server and it won't connect to any of them. It gets to Connecting and then never connects.

Any ideas why the **** it won't work now?

It's downloading Aftermath now, which I had already downloaded once. I've been playing on Aftermath servers for a couple weeks. Why didn't Origin tell me it had uninstalled itself, or that it needed an update? It isn't telling which one it's doing or that it needed to be installed or updated in the first place. The server browser just let me try and connect.

This Origin setup is a joke. Now I'm updating or downloading the whole damn thing...I have no idea which. It has the progress bar, but I get no details on speed or ETA.

EDIT: Looks like it's downloading the same exact update that I downloaded this morning...the same 3.9GB update for Aftermath. Or...downloading the whole thing is what it looks like. What the **** is going on!? I won't be able to play for another 2 hours now.

This Origin setup is a joke. Now I'm updating or downloading the whole damn thing...I have no idea which. It has the progress bar, but I get no details on speed or ETA.
I had to dl it twice too for some reason.. It dl'd but didnt have time to play it, came back, says 100% finished so I clicked play, and it proceeded to dl it again, wtf? You can look at dl speed and data details by double clicking the progress bar.

Yeah...it's the same exact update. It took me 2 hours to download...now I have to wait all over again.

Also, how is this an "update"? It looks like the entire expansion to me. How did it uninstall itself? What could I possibly get in an update that is a whopping 3.9GB?
