Won't have to unlock 'em if you got 10 spare dollars begging to be wasted on what would otherwise take you an hour of playtime.

They better not have that shit. Fuck CoD doesnt even do that with unlocks, and Activision's one of the greediest companies out there.

And nah, not an hour. If it's 10 times as much as BC2 it'll probably spread out to the last rank.

I didnt read the article btw, just got back from dilating my eyes a few hours ago and I can't read a huge article on a white background like that.

Do they count ribbons and medals as unlocks?

I skimmed the article. Apparently there will be an unlock tree so you might not get every single gun available.

^So basically 90% of people will have the same exact unlocks (all the sniper rifles and whatever ends up being the M60 and AN94) and everyone on EAUK will e-peen each other about how they unlocked the "assault tree" and only use the most useless shit to spawncamp and are therefore better at a laggy shitty game than everyone else.

Nah, that's good.

I think it's gonna work like MOH, which isn't all that bad. Since there are faction specific weapons I imagine at first you'll unlock faction specific weapons, then universal weapons, then then finally the other faction's weapons.

So you might be unlocking shit seperately from each faction.

And weapon customizations and shit are also weapon specific so that definitely adds to the number.

Like MoH is defined as "bad," not "not all that bad." So the rest of the post I didn't even read.

OK Fido, yeah MoH was bad.

But its unlock system I heard was you unlock faction specific weapons first and then unlock the other faction's weapons, which seems like a good way to keep a flow of new unlocks going. That's probably why they say there's 10x more unlocks, you unlock shit by faction and weapon/vehicle, not overall like BC2.

No, what they probably mean is that, unlike bc2, they expect and are counting on most of the general population reaching the top rank over time, and they want a huge stockpile of useless shit, most of which is probably clones of other items you already unlocked that do the same fucking thing, so you keep seeing that "(INSERT ITEM) UNLOCKED!!!!!!!" bullshit at the top of your screen every so often.



So you probably get all your weapons by rank 25 or so and then after that you start unlocking useless bullshit like a 4x scope thats exactly like the 4x scope you already got except it has a blue crosshair instead of a red chevron, shit like that.

Marketing is always hype....

Game still looks better then BC2 by far already....

And yah, those attachments are prolly filling up a lot of unlock slots.... inflating the number...

It's like the ridiculous # Gearbox came up with for potential weapons in Borderlands.... such bullshit, there are only a few real variances and only the smallest of stat differences inflating the real number 10,000 fold

yah +32 dmg or +33 dmg... or +34 dmg.... or +20 dmg... ah shitty one

actually 99.99999% of everything you see drop is trash.... hardly even worth picking up to sell anymore after you break the point of so much fucking money it can't even tell you how much fuckin money you have anymore.

That's why... really... once you max level and xp doesn't matter... underdome ain't so bad...... it's just a fuck off arena that throws some decent waves at you and who gives a fuck if they don't drop..... they wouldn't be droppin shit in thee field either and it'd take more time moving around finding that many enemies.

Oh joy... More fucking useless ribbons and medals.

And for the record MoH unlocks were utter bullshit. it took me like 4 hours to unlock all the sniper shit.

Pointless shit at that, M24...Veteran M24 (same exact gun with a little rag wrapped around the barrel)... insurgents SV98(same exact specs as M24) Veterans SV98(same gun with a rag)... WTF! 4 of the same exact gun!!! or should I say I unlocked some rags?

Even so I liked it more than BC2, if only DICE spent more than a week throwing it together.
