Oh well I bought BF3 today... A nice shiny pew pew shooter! Even after the latest patch it's still buggy as fuck though. Took me 1 1/2 hours to find a functioning workaround for the campaign's "Going Hunting" mission bug. Doh!
Fucking EA. After ME3 and now this I really should stop buy their crap. You get 1 1/2 hours of tears for 1/2 hour of fun.
I'm in the campaign mission "Comrades" now. My 'comrades' are not, though (google "BF3 campaign invisibility glitch"). And this merry little bug continues to occur even with the latest patch applied.
It's settled now. I shall not buy any more EA games. Moneyhungry gaming-industry-killin' cocksuckers.
I am still on the 3rd one where you have to extract the guy... I think its called "extraction". Whoever I am with always gets killed when you get out of the humvees and have to fight off the Iranians.
I was having this problem as well...played the mission several times. Always died at this point. Then I realized there is a room/courtyard thing you can hide in and shoot out from. Its up near the front of the convoy. Just get you and your buddy in there and it is no problem.
