Campers beware! This place does have some good camping spots, but they are easy to get through somehow and take campers out. (gernade) They are closed in areas, one way in one way out. all you need is a gernade and camper gone. It is mostly open with moderate cover at times. It has a parking garage with war damage to make things more interesting. The only thing I do not like is that there is a crapload of smoke on the map. Hard to see anyone if you are sniping.
Snipers listen up. There are good spots to pick off un-suspecting players, but they are in the open mostly. Easy for a medic to pick you off or for another player to flank and knife you. You need to watch your back constantly. Assaults will have a bunch of fun on here because it is fast pace. This by far is one of the most interesting places on the game. But if you look at the official launch trailer, You will see what looks to be an interstate loop level featuring Tanks,APCs, Attack choppers, and a whole lot of open space...
Small warning and criticism: Also, Hackers are using the M4 guns for the assault class and aimbot/wallhack/maphack functions lately. M4 bis already lethal (only experienced the getting pwned part) but what if you get headshots every time? They need to make more interesting guns like the Thomson instead of powerful. If they make it to where people have to spend money on here just to have fun, then they will lose players. I do just fine with the M16A2 and on good days take out snipers long range, but when players get out there with Elite M16A2's then all h3ll breaks loose. Also they need to fix the engeneer class's guns because lately with the Elites being released we are getting killed long range with little rapid fire pistols meant for close range. I am not saying I can not handle them, but it is just annoying to spawn in and somewhere across the map a player hit you 2 times with a machine pistol and your dead.
Anyways, Basra is awesome and I recommend it for everyone.
