Battlefield 3


 

THE BUZZ: YouTube user “Oddbox701” has posted his entry for the “Only in Battlefield 3” contest, in which he makes fantastic use of HALO (High Altitude-Low Opening parachute insertion) jumps to plant the bomb repeatedly in Rush on Caspian Border.

EGM’s TAKE: We have to give the guy credit where credit is due, he had a plan and executed it to perfection to become the MVP in that match. Many times I’ve tried to open my parachute late and many times it has ended in a suicide. However, “Oddbox” appears to have it down to a tee. Now there are probably a few others who make use of this move, and if you do then well done for figuring it out. It appears that the enemy team didn’t know what had hit them when he appeared from behind, and his superb timing opening the chute meant there was no way they could get a shot off at him. After this video expect the move to be tried a lot more in future Rush games.

Afterwards check out this other Battlefield 3 player having fun with campers.
