Battlefield Heroes

Was a comment to Lou, but long and interesting enough to put here:

Battlefield Heroes is strange. I didn't think much of it at first, but now I love the thing. I love playing the Gunner. Get this:

You have to buy or rent your rocket launcher!

Yeah, really. It sounds like the worst thing ever. See the RL is an store item for the Gunner. You can use real money to buy it or rent it for 1 day, 3 days, or 1 month. There are in game points (VP) that you can use to rent it (not own) for 1 or 3 days. You get VP by winning games.

So, the thrill comes in when I need to win 2 matches to cover the cost of my RL rental for the day. If I suck, no RL tomorrow. Also since the game is "dumbed down" with infinite ammo, I can spam rockets all day long. All classes have a weapon like this. I'm actually renting 2 weapons: My Tank Buster Rocket Launcher and The Cheezer Machine Gun.

  2. I found the soldier's weapons to be on par with the other classes starters. The pistol and a "buy in" weapons seems wrong tho. Love when someone actually knows how to use heal as a Soldier tho. Bandages cost VP!

  3. I'm fact, after playing the other classes, Soldier seems to be the one most sustainable for free.
