    Just sent out my veterans for a standard fire base mission. The plan was going to be a quick hit and run, and get my men out safely before the NVA could deal some serious damage. I had an extra kill card with a cobra escort so I decided to bring it with me for some extra support. When the choppers dropped down I quickly realized we landed right…[Read more]

    I found the fix, turns out safari sometimes doesn’t allow hot keys to work when running flash games. Simple fix- Google chrome!

    • hmm I am fairly sure that it can happen in any browser.
      Is more of a Windows input related issue that causes that bug in the Flash Player I think.

    I’ve had an issue in Recon lately where none of my hot keys work, including the map button. I can’t select my rangers with 1,2,3,4 or 5 either. Anyone else have this issue or know how to fix it?

    • I am fairly sure that I have heard of this before and I have experienced it myself a few times.
      All of a sudden keyboard input would cease to function for the game.
      That makes it almost unplayable.
      My tip so that you do not get a rage-quit is to extract asap and take the merit hit.

    First time in a while since I’ve been on. Is Recon not working for anyone else? All the other games work fine, but when I load up Recon it’s just a plain black screen

    Just completed a Hunter/Killer mission that really just hit the fan. The objective was to kill 7 VC, but my Intel said that there would be a platoon of militia, so thankfully I loaded up with some heavy weaponry. I ended up with 47 kills, and not a single injury, which was surprising because I ran into a ton of NVA. Ammo boxes are a lifesaver.

  • How do you guys feel about the FN FAL? I just gave it to a Recruit and he was racking up kills on a Screen mission. I might consider using this instead of the M14.

  • I personally love the BAR and the M60. If I know I’m going to run into a lot of VC or even NVA I’ll take the extra bulk for the sheer firepower of both those powerhouses. I also like to give my high spot/combat soldier the M14 because it really emphasizes their skill set. For a middle of the road weapon I use the M16 until I unlock the Stoner 63,…[Read more]

    I had this same exact thing, and I was just as confused. Lance is right, he’s a special NVA leader

    On a hunter killer mission I had in Recon, I kept hearing a megaphone with what sounded like an angry NVA officer. Can any one tell me the source of this? Later on in the same mission I ran into a few NVA soldiers, so maybe that has something to do it.

    • Could be a VC radio station. They will broadcast information and if you hear the sounds of a megaphone then one is nearby. Retransmit near it to gain intel.

    • I think that’s what happens when an NVA officer starts shouting commands to his troops, not sure if they do that regularly or only when they are coordinating an attack.

    • It is a NVA guy with his own equipment, mostly that means there are some NVA unit in your AO. Radio station will have different sound and only will be heard when you are close enough.

      .

      • The megaphone guy is a NVA commander, it is a special unit. Mostly he controls all the units in the AO. If you go overt, he will organise sweeps, encirclements, flankings to a greater scale usually experienced.
