*goes into the forums and sees more talk about MNB3* Ah, more teasing….wait, open beta? Nice try, URB. You can’t troll me. *goes up to “Play URB Games” and sees MNB3*….WOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When it comes to insertions or post-contact, I notice that the time it takes for the situation to turn from “overt” to “covert” varies after the chopper leaves or contact is broken. Sometimes the skull turns to white in a few moments while other times it stays red for quite a while. My question to the vets is this:
What are the exact factors…[Read more]
Dox started the topic Increasing the usefulness of the "Viet" skill with VC Weapons in the forum Suggestions 3 years ago
(This is being brought over since it was inappropriate to post this in the Recon screenshots section)
As we know, when we we increase the Viet skill, the individual Ranger becomes more well-versed in Vietnamese culture. This allows them to communicate with the Vietnamese villagers and loot VC corpses/assets with unrivaled proficiency.
As a…[Read more]
It gets even better with the Heroes Unleashed mod, too. So many weapons, so many maps, so many possibilities!
Ironically, one of the most unique things about the original 2001 game is that, unlike most FPS titles, it can actually make the player extremely scared about getting shot at. All it takes is only one well-placed round…[Read more]
Ah, crud. Thank you so much for this. I hope it worked this time.
As for the weapons, I think that the MGs, Assault Rifles, SMGs, and Shotguns are a great arsenal of choice. However, it gets more ambiguous as we move towards Semi-Auto and Sniper Rifle territory.
The XM-177 and M1 are great for teams who want to go light and the M14 for…[Read more]
My apologies if that got to you, but I think this is based off of a minor misunderstanding. The content of that joke was a “military unit” thing rather than a “race” thing. When I mentioned hands, I wasn’t saying “White-American” hands, I was saying “Ranger” hands. It is a fact that Ranger/LRRP hands came in a variety of skin colors:…[Read more]
-Holds my Stoner 63 close to my chest and backs up into the corner- Q-Quiet down, Dan! There’s nothing wrong with my baby — I mean… weapon system. It only makes sense that the AK-47 would have a higher jam rate because they are often in the rough, revolting, uncultured hands of the filthy communist bush-rats that we call VC. This…[Read more]
There were 3 villagers whom I talked to. Out of those 3, only one joined me and became a Montagnard.
The bug I am reporting is that after I talked to those other 2 villagers, who only helped me with hints and remained at the village, not offering to follow me around like a Montagnard, actually followed me onto the Huey as if they were…[Read more]
Sorry about that, brother. I should have been more specific in my post. The bug was the villagers running towards the Huey and climbing on board as if they were a downed pilot or POW’s following your Rangers. Specifically around 0:05 in the video when a message comes up saying “villagerz climbed on board of the huey.”
Was on a POW mission and I was extracting 4 POW’s along with a Montagnard that I recruited from a village near the LZ. The Monty got on board, but next thing I knew, the two other villagers made a mad dash for the Huey as well. It looks like my Monty didn’t wanna leave his family behind! O_o
Guys, I’m all for…[Read more]
@Iotico Trenches, man. If it the traps don’t get ya, the VC hiding in the trees sure as heck will. Bird Dog is of absolutely no help on Dead Drop, either. *shiver*
@Greendale Lucky. All I have is Echo Two-Two
Managed to capture two of those legendary NVA…[Read more]
@Rob, aka easthulltiger All those VC around you and not a single Ranger dead?! Awesome patrol, man! I definitely have to learn from stuff like this. I want my observe/kill count to look like a “sword”, too. XP
@Lance Those pressure mines truly are the scum of the Earth. What’s even more URB is when your point-man steps on one just when you’re about to move him somewhere else.
” I just now get it. You did recruit a Monty but did not tell him to follow anyone and he is doing the spotting.
He is also a super spy with admantium skin.”
Hehe, the URB part…[Read more]
Just thought I’d add to this as well.
Show Route: This could be a toggle-able option that comes with the map. When turned to “ON” it shows dotted red lines that follow behind each of your Rangers, indicating where you have been since you first touched down in the AO.
If exciting events happen in the AO such as direct contact, having to dodge a…[Read more]
Was trying to have my newest recruit get up-close-and-personal with the VC as part of his first mission. With the way he put down that smoke, we might have a Ninja-Ranger on our hands!
One thing I was trying to emulate here was the “Figure Eight” and “Box Tactic” as shown on the wiki:
