Hows everyone like Aftermath?

25 replies 340 views Edited Nov 28, 2012

I've only played it for a short time, but Scavenger is actually fun. Maybe with some more ammo it would be better, and the ability to pick up dead enemy weapons too.

 

The maps are solid though! Best DLC since B2K.

Best DLC maps to date. I think this is what everyone was waiting for. The possibilities are crazy. Scavenger Mode

is completely forgettable but Rush/CQ are beast on these maps. I can't wait for the PC crowd to start playing so I

can see what 32V32 looks like.

I am saddened by the fact I have not been able to play BF3 for about a month now.  I am going to have to try and get on this weekend to check out aftermath.

 

Scavenger seemed like it would be cool, but the reviews so far are not so good.  How come?

 

BTW, how is the crossbow?

The crossbow is a useless **bleep**. People will realize it pretty fast and you'll see it drop off the majority play

time down the road. The only worthwhile bolt is the Rambo explosive-tips, and that has a sort of annoying 

requirement(s). The fact that DICE cancelled whatever weapons they had planned for this DLC and for EndGame

is a big let down when you have just the XBOW left. -_-

Fantastic. CQ works really well. Like I said, best DLC since B2K!

 

Nice and open, but with urban enviorments. Without the bottlenecking of Siene or Bazaar.

Sounds great then. How are the vehicle combinations?

 

Although, just to put this out there I never experienced any bottlenecks in Seine, unlike Bazaar and Metro. Then again, my squad was always going for the flags and not letting the enemy camp us out.

Think Sienne tanks with a transport or two per side, looking like (and firing) like they're straight out of Twisted Metal.

 

Some of the places you can bring tanks up into cracks me up still (Palace map).

 

I seriously hope BF4 brings back vehicle drops.

How big are the maps? Seine size? Karkand size?

@JLC, I meant to say Metro, not Sienne.

 

Tried out Rush for the first time last night on these maps. All I can say is, some of the best games I've ever played since release. Not just doing well, but the games were always close and there were multiple games that ended while we were defusing with 0 tickets on the last base. They really got Rush right with this map pack. Rush is no longer a linear mode with AM, instead, there are so many flanking positions, you have to stay on top of the objective or you will lose. (Unlike with B2K or Vanilla maps, defenders could move up really far and spawncamp)

 

Honestly, if you haven't bought any DLC yet, make sure to DL this one!

Definatly Karkand size, but more open world in a sense with a LOT of rooftops. I advise you get it.
