          Yeah, the SKS is essentially an infantry rifle, so that works. Makes me wonder how far it will shoot compared to the other sniper rifles though, since it shoots the AK-47 bullet (which is not known for very long range capabilities).

        Those sad about no M14: You will be able to select the fire rate on many guns, so set it to single shot! Also you have the SKS and another battle rifle, which will satisfy your thirst for M14′s style.

        lol making your day now, the M39 is the name for the M-14 EMR “Enhanced marksmen rifle”, now as they are listing it and making it the sniper rifle version of the M-14 instead of the M-14 “EBR” “enhance battle rilfe” =)

        What makes you think the mortar is not actually a deployable weapon that you have to aim and shoot with? It could very well be (See BF:Vietnam) I dont think it will be the crazy BC2 solution with binoculars.

        In BFBC2 itd called a mortor strike, and those are 120mm in the mortor strikes description. In this list it says its a 60mm mortor. So i believe its like the one from the original BF Vietnam(Not Bad Companys) Think this info means anything?

    I see all of the classes have 6 weapons 3 US/Allies and 3Russ/Etc

    Except for Medics with 7 must be the t88 extra from the DLC/Preorder content

    & Assault with 9…. Not sure where the 3 extras fit in could they be Veteran Class Weapons and or could it be an error and the 2 others be slotted for “Battle Rifle” Status?

      i guess it’s because assault rifles are more common like when you see the USMC, their standard issue is an m16 or m4 with multiple attachments. Maybe also because it’s the main marksman a multi role weapon that when you switch firing mode to semi-auto you can put a sniper scope on. More reliable and stable.

        When Snipers sit in 1 spot, people whine they camp too much.

        When Snipers do so-called “Quick Scope” people whine about Quick Scoping. Quick Scoping haters do realize that Snipers can’t go around with the Tunnel Vision from Scopes 24/7 in-game right?

        Personally I’d rather move around than sit in a corner and wait for someone to walk by. If that means I use my scope the moment I see an opponent, then that’s just how it is. It’s really not that different from what Assault Rifles do you know, it just provides more Zoom. Are we playing CoD or BF?

          In my mind there was always a difference between quickscoping and scoping in quickly and firing. What always annoyed me about MW2 was that quickscoping correctly gave you a huge accuracy AND speed boost. I don’t think that’s going to be the case in Battlefield. It’s more scoping in quickly than quickscoping. But meh, whatevs. I don’t find it that annoying.

          Well, quickscoping has been hated on due to the fact that in MW2, the accuracy plus the speed plus the fatality of one bullet equaled mass uprising. Black Ops tried its best to nullify it, but there are some cracks in the stone. DICE will most likely listen to the community and find a way to make quickscoping obsolete, like say slower zoom-in time and delayed scope steadying…I personally don’t mind snipers sitting around ’cause that’s their job as a sniper. I just hope BF3 won’t be like COD, buy and regret.

          Also, from the looks of your comment, it seems like you’re more of an assault person rather than a sniper…you like to move around instead of sit still. Assault would be best for you IMO.

          The only difference between the A3 and A5 is the addition of a Badger Ordinance trigger guard, permitting use of detachable magazines, and a new Schmidt & Bender scope, as opposed to the Unertl/US Optics MST-100. I can assume that the only reason the A5 is in the game and not the A3, is that all of the other sniper rifles have detachable magazines, whereas the M40A3 has to be loaded one round at a time, through the chamber, and into the internal magazine. It should be a dominant weapon in the hands of the skilled sniper, as it is one of, if not the most accurate of the bunch (In real life of course, game physics is another story)

          @kelleroid yes, but in bad company 2 they made some things unrealistic to balance gameplay, why can´t they just do it as well for the snipers to have no acogs to balance the gameplay in bf3? it was so annoying in bc2 when noobs who couldn´t use original scope used either acog or red dot (even more retarded) to quick scope… it was overpowered because it was so easy to quick scope with acogs! i wish noob wookies just learned to play like sgt. enigma. if you don´t know who that is, check him out on youtube; http://www.youtube.com/user/KingKumaForever . he is insanely good.

          What about using low power scopes for easier medium-to-close-range SUPPORT as a good recon should?

          Besides, quick-scoping in !badcompany is nullified because sniper-rifles cannot instant bodyshot kill a 100% health guy at all.

          Unless the Recon has motion sensors or some other cool spotting enhancement feature he would turn into Sniper and no real teamplayer would have a need to play him.

        M39 is pretty much a DRM not EBR…

        “M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle”

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M39_Enhanced_Marksman_Rifle

        EBR = Enhanced Battle Rifle

        EMR = Enhanced Marksman Rifle

        DMR = Designated Marksman Rifle

        aka, the M39 is a sniper rifle, NOT a battle rifle/ Assault Rifle.

        it’s a shame. I always loved the M14 since the M16 is junk compaired to it. smaller bullet, less range, and one of the speculations of the move to the m16 was polictal..

        I would take the M14 over an M16 any day but that doesn’t mean the M16 isn’t a good gun on it’s own.

        I wanted a full auto M14, but guess that isn’t going to happen.

          There IS a full-auto function on military-grade M14s. The problem was that recoil was absurd, and quite frankly, the idea was stupid. It was basically a BAR with no weight(and thus lots of recoil), higher rate of fire(even more recoil), and no compensation system to lessen said recoil.
          Oh, and to set the record straight…the SCAR-H is classified as a battlerifle; Like the G3, it is automatic.
          “Tacticool” laser attachments are never used on long-range weapons such as sniper rifles and marksman rifles because the laser gives away the sniper’s position. If you feel like getting your ass pounded into next week by concentrated mortar fire, feel free to attach one.
          Desert Eagles are usually not issued because the damn thing is too heavy, the gas system gets jammed easily, and the bullets are overkill for its intended purpose(a fallback weapon when you have no time to reload).
          the MP7 uses a special Personal Defense Weapon round, 4.6x30mm. It is a direct competitor to the 5.7x28mm round used by the P90 and its cousin, the Five-Seven. As such, the MP7 is not a sub-machine gun, but has the classification of Personal Defense Weapon.
          the HK416 comes in a variety of lengths, and as such, cannot be automatically thrown into the “carbine” category as the new M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle being purchased by the Marine Corps is an extended barrel variant of the HK416.
          Oh, and using a .50 BMG based snipe-i mean ANTI-MATERIEL rifle is a waste of a good bullet. AM rifles like the Barrett are meant to engage vehicles and explosives; Usage against personnel isn’t wrong, but it usually doesn’t happen.

          Desert Eagles can be CHAMBERED for any of the rounds you listed, not fire them. To use a different round other than the one the gun is chambered in requires that you switch out barrel, slide, and internal recoil mechanism for the appropriate parts, a process that can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. In a raging battlefield, could you strip, clean, modify, and refit together a highly delicate and heavy weapon that would jam if even a bit of dirt got stuck in the gas port, while mortars fall around you and stray bullets wizz past you?

          wrong the gun is better because it can hold that type of round you are saying as if they have made no progress from 5-7 but they obviously have if it can hold more powerful rounds therefore it is better and a little sexier :D

          - The MP7 has:
          - Less recoil
          - Has more muzzle energy
          - It can also penetrate kevlar (with the ammo only IT uses, note that the MP5 cannot penetrate kevlar AT ALL)
          - It is also shorter
          - Gun with largest magazine is lighter than lightest variant of the MP5.
          - A higher rate of fire
          - Largest magazine contains more rounds than MP5s largest magazine (other than Beta C, which is bulky and unreliable as shit anyway, and isn’t really in use by the US military) but it lighter.
          - Immediately accepts suppressor (MP5 had to have a specalized variant created)

          - Immediately accepts suppressor (MP5 had to have a specialized variant created)
          - Has, by default, the range of the statistically best variant of the MP5

      Desert Eagles look cool but really are incredibly unreliable anywhere other than a firing range, and sometimes even then. they are notorious for jams, have horrible reliability in the field without constant maintenance if you absolutely must have a totally overkill sidearm you’d be way better off with a 500 revolver.

      and only people who know nothing about real firearms think the mp5 is superior to the mp7.
