I'm at the point where you are supposed to chase and capture the "nuke carrier" alive by "following" your comrade. (PC version of BF3). I've tried this about 30 times but I keep getting a "mission failed - he escaped" message. I never do manage to catch up to him. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm new to gamings - so please HELP. Thanks.
You have to sprint up the stairs of the train station and then have a tough QTE to finish the mission. At some point you are told in Russian to continue chasing the guy.
Don't stop to shoot at police
Thanks for the help. I will look for the stairs. - dumb question - what is a QTE?
Which part are you at specifically? Before or after *SPOILER ALERT SPOILER ALERT* Vladimir died?
Did you try sprinting past your comrade and going after the "chase after / capture" sign directly? I never followed my comrade. He was slow.
QTE = quick time event. Those stupid hit the E key or Space bar or whatever button it tells you to. Your comrade is covering for you while you run up the stairs.
If you are like me you will have to repeat this sequence about 20 times before you finally succeed.

Thanks for your help. One more question. Is there some way to run faster than just holding down the "w" key? Some way to sprint?
Hold down the shift key while moving to sprint. Note that you cannot fire at the same time, nor reload.
You have to do it about 100 times and if you are lucky you get by.... I'm still trying by the way. Just incredibly STooopid for a FPS to have obstacles like this. I wanted to enjoy the combat not hit the E button ten million times. If this doesn't turn you off to the Campaign nothing will.

Still can`t capture the carrier....bashing e button then mouse left button, I still die ... getting boring now with
all this techie button bashing..hope it aint like this all the way through! - Bad Company2 was better up to
I have the same problem - Except my f***** screen goes black (all the info in bottom of the screen are still there) but the rest fades into dark/black
Any one with the same problem???
While doing this part on hard it was most frustrating because 2 bullets and your dead and dodging between police fire and the people shooting back i had to keep running the same choke point over and over until luck was on my side and slipped through on less than 20% HP. Whole single player campaign was easy this was the only part I died on because its more about luck than skill.
lmao.....cant get past the nuke carrier on the train station.....a considerable epic failure for EA on this...
He is easy to catch, just don't stop to shoot anything and keep at a sprint right behind him. That said I still have to get the achievement around this mission.
so figured out you dont mash the key when then pop up just press it once and your done!!! E....RMB....SPACE.....finished....cheers
When they show the button - press it ONCE
Pressing it twice results in death. Don't ask me why. Game design choice.
Only once or twice in the game will tell you to mash the button repeatedly.

I CAN'T GET PAST THIS EITHER. ANY TIPS............I HAVE HAD HIM BEAT AND ON THE GROUND AND THEN I JUST DIE FOR NO REASON
I can't capture this nuke carrier and tried anything I can think of. This is turning out to be a bad game and it needs fixing!
I play for fun and when you keep trying and nothing works to capture him. I've had him on the ground but I still can't stop him and shows another failed mission.
Please someone tell me how to get past this point.
