      Good luck with getting stars on every weapon... I finally settled on a few I like and wont touch anything else.
      yeah, you get one for 100 and 500 kills, or 1 star and 5 stars. 10 stars doesn't give you anything

      Same here. Up to 30 hours or so total playtime. Just got the FAMAS so hopefully that speeds things up a bit!

      don't have many guns, but to me the PP2000 is a friggin beast. almost no recoil. range kinda sucks, but i play TDM so range isn't that big of a deal

      Recently just figured out how amazing the guided shells can be in the MBT.

      Helicopters will need to keep their distance.

      Except that they don't auto-lock on helicopters.

      I have actually found a lot of success shooting down helicopters with the canister shells from the tank. It's like shooting really large-scale skeet.

      I believe they do if someone is sitting in the CITV station in the MBT according to Youtube videos.

      I am trying to level up my other squad mates to get the CITV access... I have it but they don't even have the guided shells yet.

      From the youtube videos heli flares have no affect once locked... one hit kill too.
      CITV + Guided Shell Video

      I so far have found the guided shells useful for long range tank killing.

      I think the SOFLAM will do this also

      I think the PP2000 is a great starter weapon. Capable of being unlocked pretty early, great rate of fire, great trigger finger discipline for medium distance targets (helps train you for later longer range weapons), and a large amount of useful accessories. The only thing that hinders the stock PP2000 / MP7 are the magazine capacities which greatly improves these two guns. Combine it with a long range pistol and you've got great coverage. For the longest time, PP2000 + flashlight + extended mag + HOLO sight was my #1 weapon.

      Actually, to get technical, close distance and directly overhead are the safest place for a heli to be against a CITV + guided shell tank. The CITV is one thing I don't understand... when you first start BF3, you wonder why there are 3 seats in tanks, but you can't sit in the third. Then when you unlock it, it completely changes a tank's power on the battlefield because not only can the tank's driver equipped with guided shells can take out air vehicles, but nearly every engineer and other air vehicles can lock on too. Also, you don't have to "use" the CITV as an upgrade on tank vehicles because it is a permanent unlock.

      After watching some PC action... console gamers drastically under utilize SOFLAMs and CITVs. I think this is because of the large amount of COD style players on BF3.

      no doubt. that is my favorite thing to do with friends i can talk to while playing. flares are useless against it, only ECM work. and they (almost) never miss javelins are super deadly against choppers too... the only downside is i have to give up my beloved canister shell

      I know... I love the little canister shotgun effect.

      I find with the guided shells you need a 2nd position gunner for infantry threats and jeeps.

      Are you on PS3?

      Any of them will shoot to, and kill, at around 400m.

      I resemble that comment.
      That is something I have actually been having to relearn- you don't just go rushing rambo style at the enemy.

      Just Unlocked the LA85 A2 by far the smoothest rifle type thus far using the reflex sight, foregrip, and heavy barrel attachment.

      I don't understand why everyone uses the foregrip. I don't even use one on probably the worst recoiling weapon in the game and I do marginally better than everyone else...
