Do you Shoot down UAVs instead of letting em fly around?

A) yes

B) no


Why do/don't you do it?

Shoot em down.


Not like they are particularly hard targets, a single shot usually does it.

If they are close, almost free 100 points why not.

I always shoot 'em down for the +100 or, better yet, mortar the operator for the +50 AND +100.

Yes, ALWAYS!

Why? Because if it has a mounted MG it will shoot my teammates and I. Not only that if the person is a skilled UAV player he/she will know that firing rockets at the MCOM boxes or breaking down a building will result in a successful MCOM capture. The UAV could also be rigged with C4 which can damage the MCOM destructible buildings or the MCOM station itself.

Other reasons why:
My Engineers can't shoot it, well they can but they will miss a lot if the UAV is too far away and they can't restock bullets. The Medic could shoot it but he would be better off running around reviving/healing people even though he has 200/400 ammo rounds. The Assault could do it but how many Assaults actually look at the sky?

You're going to sit hidden anyways so why not take out the UAV?

They become my top priority and I shoot them down. I play all classes, but I find when I don't play recon that this is the exact kind of thing none of the other noobs take care of even though recon is best equipped to get rid of UAVs.

I shoot UAV's depending on distance. But my first reaction is spot. People are useless if they just shoot them without spotting.

Lets face it, you may die and someone else needs to pick them off.

Though in hardcore, i don't shoot them, unless i can get cover. Open land or just small cover...the UAV is very dangerous if you miss.

Hands up

I had my friend go smoke and c4 (assault) load it up with C4 and then i flew around the sides in the cover of smoke and told him to blow it up when i reached the MCOM.

Needless to say we won the map because of this. The only thing that failed a couple of times was hitting a building because the smoke was too thick :P

I do it just from knowing that the UAV user is going to have to risk his life to get kills. That's were my satisfaction is derived from, not the ♥♥♥♥ty 100 pts.

I find the guy standing at the console and knife him in the head, shoot him if too far away, or shoot down the UAV. Spot the UAV first.

How's he risking his life to get kills? I don't think the majority of UAV boxes are that accessible unless you stay behind enemy lines when the base moves up.

I spot and try and shoot down UAVs regardless of class though, pisses me off when people don't take them out.

Exactly. I kill it so that he isn't protected behind enemy lines... You're a bit slow huh?

But that doesn't involve a direct risk to him. You might be forcing him to move up, assuming he doesn't just ♥♥♥♥ around in the back, but he's not directly risking his life by peppering you w/ machine gun fire and missiles.

I always try to take them down; anything that affects my team in a negative way needs to be murdered with extreme prejudice.

B) No.

Because i use a shotgun & i suck at sniping.

Sameo. If it's low; maybe I'll try and hit it with the rex (such a nice gun!), but aerial vehicles are my only weakness. :P

He doesn't have the option of using missiles and mg when it gets shot down... What's so hard to understand?

I usually don't worry about it. Most of the time I have other team mates around me and they take it out so I can keep a look out for enemies.

I consider it the recons job to take out the UAV. Why make your team mates waste whole clips trying to take it down while giving their position away when you can easily do it with 1 or 2 shots scoped in?

Worst wookie excuse ever.

Nice analysis captain obvious.

sure, why not hit a UAV? It explodes when you shoot it therefore you should.

Yes ofc.

One UAV means one Hellfire Missile coming in my direction or the UAV drives me over.

A, yes,

I'll shoot em down, UAV could be deadly, destroy building, killing vehicles and squads,

Recon's job, spot enemies, watch for tanks, mortar support, and kill if you can,

don't just stay there and killing without helping teammates

Of course! It's fun to see them trying to fly away just to catch my second bullet.

Mortar the operator, then quickly try to shoot the UAV itself.
Gives more points, while at the same time, scares the operator due to your rapid sniping.
