I just spent the better part of day sprucing up my BF3 VIDEO GUIDES page.
I cleaned up the formatting and broke the categories down further to make it easier to find what you are looking for. I added a ton of video to the list as well. I’ll be highlighting the more informative ones in blog pieces over the next few weeks.
You’ll notice some of the categories have nothing under them (like under ‘map specific tips,’) if anyone knows of a video they think should be included on this list please let me know in the comments and I’ll check it out.
If you’re looking to learn some BF3 tactics to improve your gameplay, look no further. From basic strategy to advanced tactics, from equipment to vehicles to weapon reviews, it’s all there.
Remember to give these videos a thumbs up if you enjoyed them and show the directors some freaky deaky love. I just wanted to say freaky deaky, it doesn’t have to be freaky deaky love. You could just show them a little affection. A little cuddling and light petting perhaps. But if freaky deaky is your thing then by all means…
