?My only complaint about the game are the MORONS on your team who run around with their tac light on and blind you. What kind of a moron even puts that addon on to their gun? All it does is say to the enemy HAI GUYS HERE I COME GIT READY TO SHOOT ME KK!?

I have my Steam games installing to another drive other then my Primary Windows Drive. So if Windows crashes or I need to format my steam installations are not touched.

You probably should stay clear of Microsoft and Apple then. oh wait.....

It's amazing in the dark tunnels and close quarters. It's like a deer in headlights, they start shooting the floor and everything. Easy way to get a bunch of kills is with the tac light.

I don't use it outside, but inside close quarters it helps a lot. Especially on that third set when you need to charge down that locker room on the right.

UMP+ME = you respawning

I LOVE this game, and I can't wait until the release. I did manage to play Caspian a few times the other day, and it was cool but the map was too damn big. I've had one weird crash thing in about 20 hours of playtime with a constant beep, beep, beep in my headphones that followed me all the way through Windows and a forced hard reboot. That has been my only issue.

In the mean time you blind your squad. The trade off is not worth it.

You are a poopyhead for using the tac light.

yea the lockers is probably the only decent place for it... I'll have to try it.

I find i dont die to people with tac lights in close quarters more often than people without them.

It does work there but as I said, the trade off is too great. I don't want to piss my team off. I stay with my squad and work our corner. Blinding them doesn't help.

How do you guys play the Caspian map? I've never seen it on the server list.

Then turn the light off when you are near team mates? Pretty simple..
