We all know death comes quickly when playing the BF3 Beta. Sometimes it seems that if a soldier even farted from the other side of the map it would kill you. Well hopefully this bit of info will keep you from dying so much.
Keep an eye on your health bar, highlighted in red in the above image. I know that sounds like I’m being condescending, but if you get into a firefight with someone and survive, your health will not start to regen straight away unless you park your ass on a Med pack (which we know are in short supply as half the players in the beta don’t seem to know they can throw ammo/health packs). This means you could be running around dangerously low on the old life juice unawares as there is no strawberry jam on the screen to indicate your level of health like there was in Bad Company 2. If you can stay out of the line of fire for a bit, your health will eventually start its trek back to 100%, so slow things down soldier, and you may stay on this earth a little longer.
