In warfare there are the tried and true methods of combat, the time-tested techniques that are proven to bring success over your adversaries.
Then, there are the methods seen in these videos.
Collected here for your enjoyment—err, tactical appraisal—are some of the most insane, unique, and funny ways to dispatch opponents in Battlefield 3. Hopefully, you can add them to your own arsenal of glorious destruction.
The first video, above, shows us the fastest, safest way down the mountain on the map Damavand Peak. Nothing cushions your fall like a tanker filled with explosive fuel, right?
The Carrier Troll
Getting over to the enemy carrier on Kharg Island can be difficult, but will ultimately be rewarding if you can pull this off. Clever use of C4 (which he doesn't show himself planting until 0:51) will help you rack up the vehicle destruction tally, if you can stay alive!
There's no better way to get across the map and onto the ground than being catapulted out of a fighter jet. Check out the use of the parachute at 0:05. This is quite a graceful stunt! (Note that this video goes on to show other clips, but you can bail at 0:13)
The Robot Warrior
That pesky little EOD bot can be quite effective if you run over, burn, and generally confuse the enemy with it! Enjoy the montage of destruction.
The Death From Above
This video goes to show, if you shoot at somebody for long enough and miss, a strike from the heavens (0:26) will finish the job for you.
Bonus Clip of Some Bad Strategy
Lastly, as an added bonus (because it's not really something you can control), we bring you this clip from the single player campaign. The magic happens around 0:12 in. If you could somehow harness the AI's telekinetic powers, you'd be unstoppable! (This video also goes on to show other clips from the game, but you can bail at 0:20)
