I know I am way late to the party here but I just picked this game up a few months ago when it was on sale.

As most of my FPS gaming experience is with games like CoD, Overwatch and even older FPS like Doom and such, the setting is what made me want to try the game out.

I managed to play a few games tonight, just conquest as I have always been more of a fan of objective game modes rather then TDM. I just find that I can or at least it feels like I can help my team out more. However as someone who is fairly new to this series and like I said coming from CoD I am finding this game a bit overwhelming, not that that's a bad thing just need a little help figuring things out.

For one thing are weapons tied to each class? Like for example in CoD I tend to like to use SMGS and assault rifles. I managed to find a SMG but it seemed Iike it's tied to the class. Also where can I get more weapos? Do weapons get attachments like CoD like sights, and other things and if so how.

I apologize if they seem dumb questions, but I just want to figure some of theses things out so I can really enjoy this game.

@Tasuki I'm a pretty big Battlefield 1 fan so I'll answer these as best as I can. Hopefully it'll give you the help you need matey!

Firstly, yes. Weapons are tied to each class. Assault class has machine guns; Medic class has rifles; Support class has heavy machine guns; and Scout class is your snipers. Not only do these classes has different weapons, but also different class-specific equipment. For example, the support class can set down ammo crates at a certain location so nearby allies can stock up on ammo, whereas a Scout class sniper will have the likes of trip-wires to set up if they've found a good sniping spot.

You can change your weapons, too. Once you get into a game, before you spawn in, if you look on the bottom you can press R2/L2 to switch between classes. Hover over the class you want and I think you press triangle to edit your class. This is where you can change your weapon, equipment and grenades, among a couple of other things.

Speaking of your weapon, most weapons do offer different attachments. They differ on the class and weapon, so bear that in mind. You can even add a bayonet on the front of your weapon (if the weapon can use one) and do a bayonet charge by holding R3 while sprinting.

You may notice that you can rank up your class. This is key to getting some of the 'higher level', more powerful weapons in the class. Although, bear in mind that some of the higher level weapons may or may not work for you.

Personally, I'd suggest starting off by experimenting with different classes and see which one suits you, and always play the objective. I've had some games where I've had a lousy KDR, but by playing the objective, I've managed to still make top 5 on our team just by playing objectives and getting heals and revives or providing ammo whenever I can. It all depends on your play style but once you find the right set-up, you'll definitely have a good time with it.

If you ever fancy, a few of us from the forums are planning to get back onto this sometime and play together. We'll be playing in the evening which might be a suitable time for you if you're up for it.

@Kyroki Thanks for the tips. I tend more to play objective modes more as honestly my KDR is usually not to good and do alot better at accomplishing objectives.

I will check out the classes a bit more today and try some of the other ones to see which better suites me.

Played a bit more tonight and I must say I am really enjoying it, though it seems I spend more time dieing the any thing else lol. One thing I am not understanding is it seems my opponents guns are alot more powerful then mine. It seems like they just one shot me while at the same time I do very little damage to them. I don't know if it's the gun I am using or what. Also I see players with different colors highlighting them, I figure red is the enemy and blue is friendly but what is green?

@Tasuki Green is your squadmates. Generally if you're in a party you'll be put in the same squad. You can spawn on any squad member as long as they're alive, whether they're sniping on a ridge from afar or whether they're in the frontlines capturing an objective.

@Tasuki Don't worry about it, mate! I'm always happy to help any way I can. I was overwhelmed the first time I play Battlefield 4 online, but once you get your boots firmly planted in the ground, you'll enjoy it a lot more!

Also, a quick side note to @Hego, @AnchorSam_9 and @Simon_Fitzgerald, when are we playing boys? Maybe we can get on a night soon and give @Tasuki a hand with things, we might even play better in a group.

@Kyroki Ok so I don't know if gameplay wise there are similar (I have heard that they are) but tonight I played Star Wars Battlefront over at my friends place. We were playing the Death Match mode, I forgot what they called it, but I noticed some similarities between that and Battlefield 1. Stuff like teammates showing up a different color and that you bought weapons with credits, even the menus seemed similar. After playing that for a few hours it got me wanting to give Battlefield 1 a go again.

@Tasuki I gotta admit, Battlefield 1 is very similar to Battlefront, however, thanks to their settings, the experiences are way different I love them both, can't wait for Star Wars Battlefront 2

Tried this game again today and I just don't know. I find it frustrating so much but part of me wants to play it, so I only play in some doses.

I love the setting and concept but the guns just feel unbalanced and way to many campers. Also I find that there is alot you need to pay attention to and constantly need to be aware on on your guard, I think that may be my problem. Also I kinda feel that this game is alot slower paced then say CoD. I find that when I rush I constantly get killed but when I slow down and creep around I just get bored.

In all I think this might be one of the games I would just watch myself.

I just hope CoD WWII isn't like this as I want a WWI/WWII game to play that I can enjoy playing.

Got the itch to give this game another try again (yeah I know I wish I could make up my mind if I like this game or not lol). This time around I decided to take things a bit slower and did ok. I just hung back followed my teammates around and tried to help out where I could. After awhile I noticed that when I went down they would pick me up if they could it a werid kind of way it made me feel good that other players were helping me out, so in turn I tried to help them. Did have this one moment when an enemy had a flamethrower and took out a few of our guys. I was able to get his attention by firing a few rounds at him which then another one of the team was able to pick up the guys who just went down. Then we all took out the flamethrower together!! It was quite epic.

I just need to figure out how to heal people and give ammo out.

@Tasuki Play the objectives and help your squad and team mates. That is the core gameplay loop of Battlefield games, especially in Conquest and Rush. If you play this like CoD that is your first mistake. You could have a 20-0 k/d ratio and still be quite low down in the leaderboard if you are not doing anything to help your team win.

To lay down ammo or medic packs you need to equip it as a gadget, then when in the game it is either left or right on the day pad. For medic the opposite button is your syringe to revive fallen comrades.

Only played the first recent Battlefront game but that felt really bland and shallow compared to the Battlefield games.

That's called "human nature".

When you are near someone you have the option to throw ammo near them. But it depends what class you are playing as to what you can do. Never played medic so not sure about that role.

@dryrain You don't have to be near anyone to drop ammo/med crates, you can drop em anywhere on the map. Players will only refill/heal when they are in the vicinity of the crate. This can be increased with certain upgrades.

@JohnnyShoulder Right that's what keeps drawing me back to Battlefield 1 the fact that even though I don't have the best KDR due to my reaction time I can still help my team in other ways.

This one game of conquest I was able to take the D point by myself because no enemies we're around. I was able to lay prone behind an object by the time enemies showed up some of team members were able to hold them off so I could continue taking the point.

@Tasuki I've been playing the games for years now and my k/d ratio is always between 0.5 - 0.6, but I stopped caring about that ages ago as stuff like my squad score is quite high. It's all about doing what you can to help your team win at the end of day. It is frustrating when you see players just leaving the flag and then your squad get overwhelmed in the next few seconds. You get points for defending the objectives too. Also when reviving it good to clear out any enemies, nothing worse than someone reviving you only to keep getting killed straight away repeatedly. Of course they get loads of points and bonuses for reviving you lads but it damn frustrating for you.

I don't wanna blow my on horn, but I'm fairly decent at Battlefield. Have about a 1.27 K/D with about 60 hours of playtime and a 65% win percentage. If anyone wants to squad up, let me know!
