    Re: Am I doing it wrong?

    thee quick knife will work if you are behind an enemy and press F, although it has failed sometimes to me. i was behind a sniper for like 30 seconds exposed to enemy fire and having the risk of him noticing me trying to quick knife him, and it was just not working, so i finally pulled my knife out and managed to get his tags

      Pro: It remains after you die, so you can respawn as an Engineer with Javelin.
      Con: The Javelin doesn't work, it has something like a 20% hit rate when used with the SOFLAM. Battlelog is full of complaints about this.

      But if they fix the Javelin, the SOFLAM may be useful. It requires careful placement, and maps where you can predict the enemy's path.

        wait...you can just place the SOFLAM and forget about it? I thought you had to stay with it and manually spot targets.

          It autospots, but I think only in its limited FOV,and only ground vehicles.
          You can remotely operate it from anywhere on the map, and when you do that it can be rotated 360 and can lock on to Jets and Choppers too.

            Using the SOFLAM with Guided rockets gives them 50% extra damage.

            Its not that it doesn't hit, its that the Javalin projectile is just too slow, a tank using the boost can escape it.

              That makes sense from a game balance view. There needs to be a counter. But IR smoke to break the locks sounds more plausible then a tank moving out of the way. Just saying, but heh, it's Battlefield, the series that brought us Wing Walking among other things.

                The IR Smoke doesn't break a lock on after the Guided Rocket & Javalin is fired.

                  Does anybody know if your entire team can see SOFLAM targets, or just your own squad?

                        Best comment, "I literally, use this thing all the time and I think I've only got points from it once." Good luck with it in pubs. Awesome team play device though.
