Conquest vs Rush. That’s easy! Conquest…

Conquest vs Rush. That’s easy! Conquest. Too many C4ing idiots in rush right now.

That’s why I was playing Conquest last night with Mike, Darran and Conor. We had some great games. Laguna Presa was especially enjoyable but I did notice that enemy players were using shotguns more and more so who was I to not take a hint?

Conquest has lots of close quarters fighting. So many encounters take place in buildings, around flags, and in choke points between flags that you need something with stopping power up close. A shotgun is perfect for that. I loaded up with the Saiga, extra shells and lightweight and had a pile of fun. My score wasn’t amazing or anything but I did take out two tanks with c4 earning me 300+ points each time. Unfortunately killing myself each time too. The first time because a sniper laid a mortar strike on the vehicle before I could get away. Grrr.

I also played Panama Canal for the first second time and that was a blast. The first time I played Bad Company 2 was in Conquest on this level and I hated it! I had no idea what was going on, there was so much cover I was being blasted to smithereens whichever way I moved and none of my team used a mic and were no help. My second game was a lot more enjoyable! :)

We got best squad in most of the games, I got a positive KDR in a few and once, just once, got the highest score in my squad, beaten to the top spot on our team by only 200 points or so.

I had a very quick game of Onslaught on hardcore difficulty this afternoon and boy is it impossible without a good team. Played on Isla and we got nowhere!

Cool, there’s a neat stats graph on the bfbcs.com history page now! Look at my skill level bounce up and down!

  1. Although I like Conquest, I actually miss Rush. But I can’t bring myself to play it because it’ll either be crappy from the get go, or we’ll have one or two decent rounds and then the C4 nonsense will start.

    Glad you guys had a blast though.


    1. Me too, I loved the pre-c4 days of rush but I also remember I was getting bored of it, especially as it was the same old maps. If there’s a silver lining to this, we’ve extended the lifetime of the game making it more interesting again.

      I have to admit, the games we had the previous night were a lot more intense, except possibly last night’s one on Laguna Presa. That’s a great Conquest map.


  2. I’ve been playing rush the last couple of nights to get some medals and couldn’t believe how many games people were using C4 against the stations. Most games were ending within 10 minutes which really is a waste of time even trying to play.

    Conquest on the other hand is amazing, terribly fast and a lot of kills or deaths. I’ve found playing with the recon using shotgun is brilliant.
