    Battle Cry Explained

    This is just an explanation on the Battle Cry feature, for anyone that doesn't fully understand how it works.

    The Battle Cry, once used, will recharge after a period of time - that was a big blur cleared for me when this was explained in an interview. So you do not have to earn a Battle Cry, just wait.

    The symbols on the HUD were not explained, though. However I have managed to figure out what these HUD symbols mean:



    So, we now know that the Battle Cry recharges simply after a certain period of time and is not earned by getting kills or capturing objectives, just waiting. But here we have two symbols on the lower right-hand side of the HUD.

    The first one (red box) represents the Battle Cry that you have set, the benefit that you will give your team-mates effected by your Cry. The one shown above is a speed boost, which I think just increases the time that you can sprint for. So anyone that is in the range of the player above's Battle Cry will gain this advantage.

    The second symbol (blue box) was the one I was always wondering about. It is a character with their hands by their mouth as if they were shouting, or in this case - crying. The number next to this represents the number of team-mates that will be affected by your Cry.

    If you think I am wrong, then please share you ideas, but I'm pretty certain that I've got it.

    Hope this helped anyone that was unsure.

    I think you got it right or are very close anyhow.
    What I would like to find out are the Perks which drain / run out and the ones that once activated they keep working until we are killed which is when they reset / stop working.

    Flashify I just realized your an Essex Boy - are you PC or Console platform for FC3 (Sorry I couldn't remember - I seem to think your on PC)

    Hmm, that's hard to guess, I think the more beneficial Battle Crys, such as increased health, are more likely to drain after being wounded and have fully regenerated your health. Therefore the less beneficial Crys, such as the faster reload or sprint boost, I reckon are the ones that will stay until death. Just a guess thoug.

    Haha, indeed I am an Essex boy. I am on Xbox mayte. What gave you the impression I was on PC?

    Oh, and possibly, mattscat.

    Ah ha, A fellow xbox-er.
    I really like the Battle cry idea. I can't wait to get a group of buddy's together and discus which Battle Cry's we shall use.
