Battlefield 3 Support Class Guide - Overview, Strengths, and Weaknesses
The Battlefield 3 Support Kit is, as advertised, designed to support other players. As a result, this is a class
you will want to choose if you have a good team which is worth backing up. It is not all the useful if you are
playing random pick-up games and your team is not working together.
This class uses light machine guns, which can put out a lot of low-damage bullets but also lack accuracy from a
distance. This is good for suppression fire at long ranges and can be used to take down opponents at short-mid
ranged combat (but not too close).
The general weaknesses of this class are both short and long-ranged combat. The position of the Support player
would be in between Engineer/Assault players and Recon players. You can drop Ammo Kits on either player and use
your light machine gun to spray enemies behind fortified targets.

Battlefield 3 Support Kit Guide - Leveling Tips
Whenever someone on your team gets a kill from a target that you are suppressing with target fire, you get 50
points (which is worth half a kill). You can really rack up a lot of points just by using Suppression fire and
making the most out of your large ammo clip.
Speaking of Ammo, another great way to earn points is to drop your Ammo Kits (directional pad left button) so
that your teammates can get more ammo. Every time people on your team pick up ammo from the pack, you earn points
(double points for squad members). This adds up to a lot of points.
As a result, the Support class may actually get the bulk of its points from ribbons, suppression fire, kill
assists, and ammo packs rather than from direct kills. This is something to keep in mind because you do not need to
have a high K:D ratio to be an effective support player (though you want to avoid deaths as much as possible).
Battlefield 3 Support Kit Strategies
As mentioned above, one of the things you bring to the table as a Support Class is the extra ammo. One of the
best things about the Ammo pack is not that it replenishes ammo though but rather that you can also get extra
explosives out of it. This can really come in handy.
For example, lets imagine you are on Rush Mode and your team just lost the first set of objectives. You can
equip C4 and start taking down cover on the way to the next set of objectives. Throw C4 all over the
trees on the map and then blow them up. Throw down an Ammo pack and let your teammate reload.
By taking out all of the trees, the opponent will have less options for advancing through cover on the way to
the next objective. Advancing head-on is suicide as your Recon and Assault players can then pick off players as
they run across the map.
As mentioned above, the Support class' weaponary is good at Suppression fire. Due to its low bullet accuracy, it
will not take down enemy players easily from range unless they are standing out in the open for a long period of
time. However, their guns do have a very high fire rate and a lot of ammo in each clip.
How does this help? Imagine this situation: you are on Operation Metro on offense and are trying to push the
third objective, but the enemy is firmly entrenched in the hallways in the back of the building. You can start
spraying the enemies encampment with your machine gun.
This will not likely take anyone out, but it does force them to take cover until you are done shooting. During
this time, your Assault Kit teammates can push forward to try to flank the opponents or get in position to arm the
objective. Your Engineers have plenty of time to line up their Rocket Launchers to take out enemy cover (or you
could get another person close enough to plant C4).
