I was playing Conquest on Tehran Highway tonight and got sandwiched by a squad on 2 or 3 up laying prone against the wall at the edge of the map and 1 guy on overwatch on the overpass. I drove in there in a BMP feeling all safe from being sniped or ambushed trying to re-take a flag in Conquest and this guy on top of the overpass – you know, the highway running ABOVE the truck flag area – starts firing AT rounds at me. I got out to try and shoot him and the guys laying in quiet wait behind me as I faced the overpass took me out.
Later, I looked around and looked but found no ladders before the game ended. Google provided the answer. This youtube video How To Get On The Overpass On The Map Tehran Highway explains basically you need to equip your MAV at the right spot beside the overpass (see the video below or click link for precise info). You can do this to get to “impossible places” on many maps.
Your Opinion: Hack or Sound Strategy?
So you get on top of your Recon guy’s MAV and fly up, parachute down to the roadway, and there you are. The video author points out (and isn’t this handy) that you can drop a beacon up there, too for your squad mates. So, here’s the question …. and the reason for the post. Assuming you are not reading this AFTER EA/Dice decides to fix this glitch, which is an assumption on my part, do you think this is an unfair hack or strategy to be taken advantage of by those who’ve unlocked the MAV and can use it well?
