Red face Have you fell off Ziba Tower legitimately?

I have, about 10 times today alone. Everytime I spawn on my squad who is on the edge of the map, ill just spawn falling down the tower straight away!

Now I wish I didn't fall on purpose before for the achievement lol.

Yeah, I'm sure I'll be doing that regularly once I really start playing BF3 again (waiting on a new internet connection). Lord knows I've died plenty of times by bumping into doorways and railings and things of that nature while backpedalling away from other players.

I did fall off the map once though. In my first time playing it. I remember jumping from a large "rooftop" with a sunroof above a pool or something, into a room with tons of glass windows. The second time I did this, I was moving in the opposite direction... and missed the rooftop.

*bloop*

Haha, yes, twice.
Now I regret deliberately going for the achievement and knowing what the secret was.
After all, the description does say "Fall" from Ziba Tower, not "Jump".

Not yet, although I have almost fallen off above C on the roof, and probably will sometime soon. :P

0. The only time I have fallen off of Ziba was yesterday when I jumped off for my achievement.
I have fallen to my death numerous times on Scrap Metal. The train and I have become friends.

funny story.

two suicides in less than 2 seconds? i laughed and then quit.

I did once. For whatever reason I thought there was a ledge to jump down at the C flag. There was just on the opposite wall. LOL

Haven't "fallen" off yet, but the first thing I did when I spawned on the map was leap off the tower. Loved seeing "Grinding the Crack" pop up. Appropriately named.

I don't think I have, I think I may have done it to avoid getting killed, just so the guy gets nothing out of it haha.

Only once, I was chasing some guy that was trying to shoot me with an xbow and I ended up falling out the wrong window. He died too though
