Welcome to Battlefield Bootcamp, a refresher course for Battlefield 3 players both old and new. This week Toby Connolly discusses the fine art of arming and destroying M-COM stations with Jonno Stanton.
Destroying M-COM stations will rack up a considerable amount of points and generating a plan of action beforehand using the mini-map in the spawn menu can give you an advantage over the competition.
Working with your team is tactically beneficial as it becomes easier to arm and defend an objective with plenty of backup; though shaping your individual strategy based on the flow of the game can also prove advantageous. Communicate with your team via the chat options in the Start Menu.
Include load outs that may give you an edge such as smoke for cover or the flak specialisation to limit explosive damage. Explosives can help by eliminating any sneaky explosives littered around an M-COM or hinder when they are raining down on your defending team. Take a step back from a captured M-COM and supress enemy advances.
Join Jonno and Toby next week for tips on the Engineer class.
