If you see a body and you're not sure if the guy is dead or just prone, then hit the button to spot them really quick. If you get an icon, they're alive, if not then you have nothing to worry about

I spot all the time for my team and it's an easy 10 points if someone kills the guy I spotted. It also helps me track them if I'm the one trying to kill the guy.

people don't get this. if you're not shooting you should be spamming Q. especially if you're in a tank or helo; tell your gunner/pilot/driver where the enemy is and if you're in charge, give them a chance to take them out instead of continuing on your merry way

well, it punishes you if you spam too much, unlike bf2. You only get 3 q's every 10 seconds or something and then it disables it for a time period.

In BF2 i actually had it mapped to a mouse button i used it so much

I fixed my lockups by updating Origin and pushing my GTX560Ti to 100% fan at all times. Now I just have one nag. It seems every few times i hop in and fly something, when I get out, I can't fire my weapons or sprint. Yet if I roll to another weapon and chooe it, it fires on round. I then have to roll to my primary weapn and it fires once, and that's it. I've had to quit 3 games last night because of that. I wonder if it's my Joystick bindings somehow jacking with it. Sucks.

I haven't been spotting at all. Now I understand how I was getting taken out without ever seeing anyone.

its exaggerated in video games. The real javelin does have an arc trajectory, but its more like lobbing a baseball in from left field to first base, rather than popping up a golfball when you get under it too much. It comes into its target at about a 30-35 degree angle.
You guys seem to have missed my post. In BF3, the Javelin has two fire modes based on the real world weapon. The direct attack mode is available to the user without any other intervention. The top attack mode requires another player to lase targets. The "lock and twitch up" method to achieve a top attack is not an intentional mechanic.
