View Full Version : [List] Show and Tell - Your Epic 'Fire Bases'

We all love a good fire base, however some are better than others, be it the FB's position or its weapon placements. When it comes to fire bases: 'You either got it, or you ain't'

To see how fire bases should look, i would like you to put up screen shots of your finest FB's from the best angles and from its position on the map. We will then comment on your FB, either praising or riddiculing it, depending on the above.
I will put up one of mine at some point, when i get round to screen shotting one, so you can see how a pro does it

The owner/creator of the best FB will win recognition amongst all of the PR members, a prize far greater than any sum of money...

Let the games begin!

Not mine, and a bit useless, but pretty cool.

One on Archer, we started with 3 people, we started a firebase at castle . By the time we had a 8 people everything was set up . We had set up wire, HMGs and had even gotten a hummer up on the mountain. We had Tippman sniping (for those who know him). It was pretty epic being in the castle, with one of the best snipers, a HAT and a LAT kit, also an LMG kit. It was pretty epic because we dominated practically the whole map, and we had another squad mobilize to take out caches. Basically all the taliban were holed up in the buildings or riding around so theyd be harder to get shot at. It was pretty epic until another squad took over and they couldnt even repair the firebase there....

Our "Firebase Port" lasted surprisingly long. It was handy to defend, because enemies had to run along the dock to get to it. Now just imagine it with barbed wire over the dock, and it would be pretty epic. We even had amphibious supply crates!

Built this cool looking firebase on Korengal Valley, at the Outpost flag. Easy to defend, loads of machineguns and barbed wire to make it hard for the enemy to grapple in. After I built it, remembered this thread and just had to take a picture.

Why do people always want to defend the outpost so bad? I mean destroying the cashes is the priority and yet they always defend it. And mostly its more then half the team...:|

Because if you don't defend it you don't get any vehicle spawns? :cry:

Mora, if you hold outpost, assets respawn. Its also a pretty good spawnpoint strategically, but an arse to defend. Felt like defending it today. I made it clear for everyone to bugger off from Outpost and go do something useful, so only had 6 guys defending.

Because many caches spawn on the north side of the river, and it is a VERY well defended spawn point which can be easily configured to be almost INPENETRABLE, it is also very easy to defend, not to mention you have a view of practically the whole south side of the map which to MG, snipe or HMG from.

edit:forgot it also allows assets to spawn

I thought that was pretty epic...later a british supply truck loaded with troops came, and then flipped over the bridge and assaulted that other stairway to get up which had an MG facing right towards it

Some nice bases there! I love the port side firebase in the water! hard to knife haha! A bit surprised that you didnt get a HAT on it tho.

Thats what I love about the new place statics. You can build a really cool base with them and fortify a position good!

This is at Vehicle Checkpoint on Al basrah (I call it outpost)

In the last photo if you can see theres a HMG sangar, so when they came in (they could only get in from the front) they ran into 2 HMGs the 1 mounted SAW plus a Marksman and a Grenadier. Don't ask why I made it

Immediately after the last screenshot, I built another wire crossing the front gate closing it off completely

i once built like the best FB or rather fortress in Fools day, me and the lads were chechens and we got this wonderful spot that gave a perfect line of fire up a road, we started by placing the FB in a shallow area, then placed HMGs on on the right to the FB another on the left at a hill wich would pretty nail any flanking, Foxholes and wire all over made it more a fortress than a FB and we chose high ground for our Foxxies and HMGs to get real good cover and make the most of the terrain plus... when i went out it was damn hard to spot it unless you had marked the place on your map.

too bad it wasn't even put to use or even tested or even took a screenie, will do next time if i ever can remake.

(the locations of where i place my Uber Ultima FB's is higly classified)

L4gi and company get my vote so far. That is one bad @ss firebase/fortress. You would just have to be sure that the enemy did not get on high ground and start lobbing in rockets and such. Nice work.
