if anyone is addicted to overpowered shotguns like i am, the M26 Dart, the under barrel shotgun attachment that you can add to medic rifles, is probably the most overpowered weapon right now. insta-kills at fairly long ranges, and obviously does tremendous work up close.

Yes, the times I have used that usually ends up in abuse.

It's not overpowered, it is broken. When combined with heavy barrel EACH Dart projectile does equivalent damage as a round from the weapon it fires. Pick an M-16, G3 with heavy barrel and Dart combo then proceed to go to town. I abused it for a few days and got triple kills several times with a single shot.

Looking for some tips/ideas here.

If you are driving around in the mobile AA. And a jet starts coming at you and is not using guided missiles to target you. Instead he's shooting directly at you. How do you counter this short of just shooting back? They always seem to get me before I can get them. And if I start moving and zig/zag at full power I still am unable to evade their shots.

Similar situation only with attack helicopters. I've seen them halfway across the map, out of range of your AA machine's missiles, just sitting there stand off blasting away at you. Somehow someway they are able to be accurate enough that far off I can't get away from them. Short of camping behind a building all day which achieves nothing how do you get rid of these pests?

thats a great question, and i am struggling with this myself. i think AA guns really cannot dominate as much as they did pre-patch where you could just park it in the middle of a wide open plain and go to work on enemy air machines. so i just end up hiding behind buildings and topography.

Nice. Some games are easy to get a Meelee Ribbon and others it seems almost impossible. I'm still to get the medal myself.

I have found that a good pattern to use on caspian is when your team owns hilltop, and enemies have forest, you can often just watch the enemies make their way to the hilltop, and drop down behind them, and go to work.
