Default Never firing a shot?

Thought I'd share my experience from earlier today, and see if anybody else has ever had a similar one. I wish I could remember the name of the map I was playing on (it was the one with Russia against the United States and the US had to make beach landings) but I was playing as a medic for the US and I was lucky enough to find a good squad, and even better, a good and in control squad lead who know what he was doing. Our squad pretty much remained unchanged from the start to the end of the game, and we had built two FOB's and capped two flags, and that entire time, myself and another member of the squad never had to fire a single shot.

It was the oddest experience I have had in PR yet, never having to fire a shot. Our team and squad performed so flawlessly and was so coordinated that we experienced little to no firefights, at least for the infantry squads, but when we did, we dealt with them quickly with almost no losses (I think I had to only revive two squad members the entire game.)

Has anybody else ever had an experience like or similar to this?

Cedkin I don't think it's particularly unusual. Me, I'm so slow I miss the opportunity to shoot. So I die a lot.

There are rounds where I put a lot of energy into the non-contact elements of the game. I build the FOBS so few seem to want to build. Or operate mortars.

In campaigns recently I've run a logistics squad. Again, not much direct contact with enemy, but an important strategic contribution to my team's result.

Nice one

I had an experience I remember like that. It was with that old desert city map that is removed. Relatively small city in the middle of a long (vertical) map.

Our squad got tasked with securing the east side of the city and our team pushed up hard and fest on the west. I remember looking at the same gate for about half an hour to 45 minutes without seeing someone. Our team just made sure no one got in the city.

I know the feeling, back in .95 I only fired 1 round as a FAC (Forward Air Controller) when I was directing targets for CAS on Kashan. I was with a sniper kit in the mountains and a guy was sitting in the AA one second later he was still sitting in the AA but then with a bullet in his head. I got many opportunities but I only used one.

We are staying up!

OP's map: Pavlovsk Bay.

Cyberzomby's map: Ejod Desert.

Whenever I come across an round like this, I like to think of all the fights I could've lost, but didn't have in the first place.

Well yes, when I happen to go commander the entire round lol. Or in armor squads, I typically volunteer to drive because I like keeping myself alive .

Running logistics on al basrah. Lots of fun cruising around getting shot at, and seeing rpgs wiz by. I would take the medic kit in the transport squad or whatever. If I saw friendly go down on the way, hop and out and revive them. If you keep your distance from the insurgents, you can last a long time in those trucks. And it really helps the team.
