I've been playing mostly bf2142 lately and I found a Titan server I like but one thing really bugs me about it. One of the clan guys for that server gets unreal k/d. I saw 104-2. I was hoping to get an admin to kick him but turns out he IS the head admin for the server. All his kills are gunship and he is #4 on the leaderboard with it. I know he camps the other titan. My question is can that really be legitimate or is that some vehicle aimbot? I have been surprised before on that server with being killed with by 1 shot while in a 100% tank but I didn't notice where the kill came from.

Yeah, if he's actively camping the other titan and he's a legit good pilot, he could rack up those numbers. He's got to worry about ground based AA and podders, but he can keep down the other aircraft easily, and tanks would have to gain some distance from the base (or come in from other areas) to hit him if he's aware of what the ground situation is like and stays high enough.

That being said, it's dang hard to do this, and I'd be suspicious if the guy keeps racking up the same sort of ratios constantly. I'd also start to wonder if he did stuff like kick anyone who was able to take him down more than once, since he's the head admin there.

The tank thing happens. That's not suspicious, especially if you don't know where the hit was from. Probably a rear plate hit with another tank or a Pilum.

No if he is really really good this is what I am thinking he is doing.

1.) Give a light pitch to the nose of the gunship and a little forward momentum.

2.) Switch to the gunner position and fire a cam missile at the general direction of the tank. NOT AT IT DIRECTLY!

3.) At the last possible second flick the missile into the rear of the tank getting a kill with no beep. Note: high sensitivity for mouse required.

I remember teaching the missile part to to quite a few of my gunners while playing with the CLR's. Though I had quite a bit of trouble with it solo (too many crashes and stalls). This was the only somewhat reliable way I found to kill massacre in his tank...

This would be my best guess as to what he is doing. It is not too hard unless you hard stall yourself (throwing your pitch too high and going near vertical at low speeds will make you crash.)

Thanks for the advice. I'll stop being peeved.

Rico's mission: Screen shot through the sights of my SAAW with the words "You Killed CTFalcon".

No, fraid not. There are tons of variations on the same theme. In game I'm JohnyRicoE. The "E" was for engineer. I have taken great pride in killing 2 other Ricos in 2142 but I didn't get screenies. I think I have a screenie of two of us getting kills at the same time though.

Well, the mission continues. I have a screenie of me killing him with the side gun on the transport but not with the SAAW.

Today I started noticing that there was another guy that was pretty great with the gunship and I decided to look him up. Didn't take long. x=FAST=x. #1. This is turning into a tough server to shoot down gunships. :cry:

I remember when he was on the server. I could never find the commitment to stay at #1 that long.
