how do you do the bombing raids? i have been unable to figure that out yet
There's one air raid bunker on each map (just a gray bunker with a big satellite on top). On Wake Island and Iwo Jima, the bunker is located at the Airfield flags. On Guadalcanal, it's located by the flag opposite the airfield flag (can't remember the name).
When an air raid is available, the bunker will show up on your radar (will be 3 small planes). Just get into the bunker before anyone else does, then you can guide three bombers to whatever target you choose and drop some bombs. If the light on top of the bunker is lit, then someone is already in there.
Hope this helps. You could always go to the tutorial to test it out.
This game has gotten a bit boring lately. Granted, this has been the only game I've really played since it came out, but it's gotten a bit stale.
So, I usually just play as a Sniper and I throw my explosives on a jeep and drive it into a tank or group of people. I jump out before i get to the target, letting the momentum of the car reach the target, and since I already have my explosives out, I just detonate it. It's easy points and really fun.
With this method and only using the sword, I get upwards of 15 kills a round and am in the top 5 usually.
I just downloaded this yesterday and played a handful of matches. Started out slow, basically learning all of the buttons. I definitely cannot fly worth anything. Just when I thought I was beginning to understand the principles of the flight controls, I get shot at, panic, and then somehow turn myself upside down and plunge into a mountain...so I didn't really enjoy Coral Sea. I did start to get the hang of the ground combat, though. I really enjoy using the rifleman and got myself up to getting about 11 or 12 kills a match.
I like how the whole map is pretty chaotic. It's definitely interesting. Any news on possibly more maps being added at some point?

Someone suit at EA is probably on the phone asking someone your question.
If you read the comments, there's a tip on getting your squad back together if they get separated between matches.
I found out the other night that if you are in a squad and get dropped (as in you are alone with no one else in your squad suddenly), all you have to do is send game invites to the players who were in your original squad and you will regroup. It doesn't boot any of you out of the game, all it does is re-establish the squad, and it only takes as long as accepting a game invite to a match you are already playing.
Still sucks somewhat, since I never had to do it with Bad Company, but it helps.
