Hey, question. I've been watching different people arming M-Comms pretty quickly. It takes me much longer to arm them. I know you press and hold B to arm but is there something else to do to quicken the process? Seriously, it takes me like twice as long as i've seen other people do.

On a side note, kicked some major tail last night on rush (I got best player 3 times!!) I know Freak was in there and a couple of others. Good job team :applause:

The only way I can do it is wait. I suspect they do it the same way they get the semi auto M95, and full auto 1911s :-?

Is it possible that the MCOMM gets armed quicker if there is more than one person trying to arm it?

What I usually do (if playing Recon, Engineer, or Assault) is I get to the MCOM, put all my payload on it (mines or C4), then arm it. It takes the same time to arm no matter what. Once armed, I wait for an unsuspecting player to try to disarm then I either click the C4 to go BOOM or I throw a grenade at the mines and BOOM! Either way, I usually get 100 points for the MCOM destroyed, about 50-100 points for kills when the explosives go off, about 100-150 points for causing objective damage, and ... hehe ... -10 for a suicide. ;) Good way to get points and cause some damage. Some squads run in pairs and just lay 12 C4's on the MCOM and then INSTA-BOOM!

Remember, there are many ways to arm the MCOM, you don't necessarily have to see the MCOM to arm it.

Just thought I'd add this, since I've gotten some PM's on my last comment:

You can arm Mcom-A on Arica Harbor (the bus one) outside of the bus. You can arm Mcom-A on Laguna Presa (last one) from under, you just need to stand on a teammates back...did this last night with medicalwaste. Same goes for Mcom-B on Valparaiso (the one on the water). Many of them can be armed as long as you're close by.

You can also C4 the M-COM from below on Valparaiso (the water one), but once you blow the floor, then there is a bug that won't let you slap more C4 on it from underneath...kinda frustrating! :-w

Also, to go along with that...if you want to play run and gun recon with C4 or C4 carrying assault, the G3 makes a really really nice gun for it! I seem to always get my ass kicked when carrying any of the shotguns (except the quick shot shotguns). It's definitely a nice way to level up those classes and have some extra bang power to help your rushing squad out!
