Since I’ve been playing BFBC2 I’ve picked up a number of pins and accomplishments. Some were through pure luck, others through
supreme gaming prowess dogged persistence and planning. When I got the bronze weapons star I’d sort of given up on achievement hunting as it had been a long and painful process. Using some really stinking weapons in order to get 25 kills with each was a frustrating thing for me to do.
Recently I’d decided that I really wanted to get the ‘Wheels of Hazard’ pin. You get this by completing three road kills in any one match. Sounds simple, except that road kills are quite a random affair with lag and rubbish hit detection. It is especially frustrating when an enemy passes right through your vehicle without a scratch – oh sure, you’ve got hit them with the wheels but lets be realistic here: people don’t pass through vehicles, they bounce off, under or over them – sometimes body parts fall off too. Worse still is the invulnerability that holding an RPG gives a player (but not the driver of the vehicle).
So I put a call out to the community for help in getting road kills (featured in the last blog post):
I received many pieces of good advice. Mostly, use a jeep or a tank. And so last night, on Rush, Harvest Day with Donncha, Nick and I think Sulley or maybe BydoEmpire at that time, I got the three road kills using the CAV jeep thing.
Prior to that I also finally got the Naval Warfare pin by using Mike’s tactic of sniping from a jetski on Isla Inocentes. There were some very angry engineers on that level I can tell you. We lost in the end as the defense was just too strong – and for some reason, despite it telling me that I’ve been doing rubbish in game, it’s been matching me up against level 50s!? I armed Alpha a couple of times, but to no avail.
So my next mission is to get the ‘Mission Accomplished’ pin which involves getting an M60 kill, an RPG-7 kill and a knife kill in one round. Should be fairly straight forward, although it does mean that I’ll have to run the M60…..
Oh, and I got some gold dog tags last night too – whoopee!
Peas and loaves.
