You are now conscious of your breathing.
7hrs for Vanguard apparently, same as COD4(MW). They've never been long but unless you are buying for the multiplayer there's no way to justify the price.

I've always preferred the missions that involved using vehicles, so Battlefield 1 and 5 are much more enjoyable from my point of view.
You see I took a very long COD break, we're talking the very first (2003) then ww2 (2017) was on sale, so gave that a go and the difference is night and day. I've given the rest a go since. BF1 I enjoyed but once again did it in a 'long' night. BFV I honesly gave up on with that finding a fire to keep warm bit despite being yeeted off a bridge by me mam.

So I went ahead and got the Warthog.

Now I’m eyeing up the Cougar MFD’s and a couple of little screens to go in them…

Good man :-) They are incredible and the sheer weight and design of the warthog is something else. The MFD’s are of course a dummy screen with working buttons but a quick Google has a few Chinese manufacturers putting in LCD displays and software so when plugged in they are fully functioning as in the game and they are not much money mate, worth taking a look.

Also hearing brilliant things about crosswind rudder peddles. Guy in Croatia makes them and they come in at £250 for a set and they workmanship looks stunning. They will be a must for Heli flying.

7 hours is woeful. Shame really as I'm a big fan of campaign modes as well as Multiplayer

Yeah I know matey, I’m looking at a couple of screens on Etsy and two cougar button surrounds made to fit.

Also really fancy this for the middle of the two:

Also, have you tried using the Warthog throttle for Helis?

No I have not as I’m determined to master the few planes and all their flight and weapon systems before I do. As much as I want to get the Apache, I’m just not going there right now.

Im told though that Heli flying is very different in so much you don’t want a self centring joystick if that makes sense and of course, the cyclic is also very different. That said, I’m sure there are profiles and workarounds that will get you up in the air and having a blast without spending silly money on yet more controls.

Those MFD’s look incredible as well.

Yeah I’m refusing to buy the MFD’s and Cougar MFDs until I’m out of “training”. Never had a game I’ve stuck 200 hours in and still felt like I’m totally fucking clueless in before.

It’s nerd level dedication needed for this game as well as a bit of spare cash in the bank ;-)
