BF3 sig

One of the most popular aspects of Battlefield 2 was its deep persistence feature, where players earned unlocks and awards as they played, and which could keep them busy for years. This returned in Bad Company 2, however, you could unlock most of the weapons and gadgets in Bad Company 2 in a few dozen hours, something which took DICE by surprise.

For Battlefield 3, DICE always stated that they were going with a much deeper persistence feature, with many more unlocks and a revamped unlock structure for weapons and attachments. Now DICE’s Alan Kertz has unveiled just how long it takes to unlock all the weapons, attachments and gadgets for a class: 100 hours.

The reason it takes so long is because unlocks in Battlefield 3 are given per weapon basis, where each weapon attachment must be unlocked for a specific weapon, meaning that players will be unlocking the same attachments and gadgets over and over again, for each weapon. Most weapons will be given three slots: one for scope, one for barrel, and one under-barrel slot for grips, bipods, grenade launchers, etc.

On one hand, the more you use a weapon, the more and better accessories you get for it, on the other hand, it might get a bit too repetitive unlocking the same thing again and again. But we’ll have to wait and see how the system works when the game ships. Or in the upcoming beta.

      So few hours. Double that and you have some real time-value-ratio. Game’s complete in like what, 3-6 weeks depending on how much social life traded for this. Still, it being closer to BF2 in “time consumed” aspect is better than going “I must have it all and I must have it NOW!” *cough* BC2 *cough*

      The thumbs up/down thing needs to definitely be fixed. I’ve had no other problems with this site other than that. Back on topic, I can’t wait to play this non stop, what with all vehicle customizations and weapon progression unlocks, this is ten times more stuff than what MW3 has to bring to the table. Robert Bowling talked about how you can customize your weapon to get less “kick” or less spread, more damage, yaddah yaddah yaddah… but this just blows that out of the water. Even with all the new things that MW3 is implementing into their game, BF3 is just rasing the standards while CoD is still in the nose bleeds. There’s only so much that the CoD Engine can handle, and it has probably almost reached it’s limit. There’s no way that CoD can raise up any further. Their Honda CRX is tuned to the max, while BF3′s Ferrari can still be tweaked to be better, stronger, and faster than ever. :)

        Plus I also love the fact that MW3 is trying to copy BC2′s “Classes” by naming them differently. By the way, here’s a couple of weapons that haven’t been in any other FPS that MW3 is copying:

        USAS-12

        MP-412 Rex

        G3

        G36(C)…

        Keep this going by posting other things you’ve noticed that MW3 has copied!

          You mean the “Assault, Support and Specialist” Strike Packages?
          Yeah, those aren’t classes lmfao.

          MW3 will have pre-set classes just like every other COD. Most people end up overwriting and renaming them to make their own custom class.

          Anyway is it supposed to be good news that it takes that long to unlock eveyrthing? Talk about balancing issues…..a noob whose barely 5 hours into the game will have a really hard time against someone whose played 100+ hours.

          Ya, at long range a 12x sniper scope vs a normal 6x scope is a pretty huge difference. Its not so much about the ACOGvsIron sights, its about the experience of the player. Technically there isnt much of a difference but 9/10 times at even odds the 100h player is going to win.

          G3, USAS and G36C?
          why is that a copy? i mean G3 was in FC2, COD4, BC2; USAS-12 (also known as “U Suck At Shootin, 12 yr old = USAS-12″ :D :D) was in FC2 first then in BC2; and G36C was in BF2 and COD4… i dont see why its a copy.
          other than that, I agree. they simply have no more ideas for the franchise. they try to make it more variable, but they only fail (semi-auto grenade launchers, a few more new overpowered killstreaks, which were mostly copied from homefront and other games, point streak stolen from other FPS series as you said, etc…)

          No game developer decided “such-and-such competing game has such-and-such weapons, and since people think those weapons are cool, we’ll put them in our game so it will boost sales.”
          Goldeneye had the M-16, AK-47, UZI, MP-5, RPG-7, etc (although renamed, that’s pretty much what they were). So any FPS that has any of these weapons is copying Goldeneye?

    This may be overboard. While BC2 was generous, 100 hours per class is tedious. Discourages experimentation. Remember that the longest insignia in BC2 was 5 days of playing in game, 120 hours. Hope it is sped up by launch.

      Well Believe me when I say that I’m so sad about what I’ll say now.
      -EA Will highly likely ask DICE to make kit unlocks available on the online stores so they can generate more revenue from new guys :(
      -For Newbies this would be great so they can get the good weapons VERY EARLY.
      -For EA, there will be more new player in BF3 :( and they will make a lot of revenue if more of them buy these unlock kits :( and OF COURSE they will be HAPPY with the extra money :(
      -For us the BF Players, we will have a hard but sweet time trying to teach those newbies that BF is about Team work not Run’n'Gun. Maybe by then they would find out that the weapons they paid extra money for weren’t that useful as they thought it would be :)

      I disagree with 100 hours being too long. I started a new soldier in BC2 so I could go through the growing pains with a friend that was a late comer. I was surprised to see that I had unlocked all weapons and equipment within 30 hours. I’m now approaching 400 hours between the two soldiers and am 12 C4 kills away from having every award, gold stars in all weapons. I’m looking forward to rewarding those players that stick to a particular weapon / role / vehicle. I think with a game like BF3 people will be playing for years, with 800 hours not being uncommon. I think this looks like a very steep hill for the completionists, but if you have to have all the awards, you going to have to work for them. If you don’t care, you can still use the guns and have a good time… you just won’t have that 12x scope you’re crying for.

      “BC2 class specific unlock system was OK.”

      No it wasn’t. It was like 3 days after release that you almost had everything unlocked. 400 hours – weapons i don’t like = Sounds good. And good thing is that when you have over ~500 hours played in BF3 you can take a not-so-good-gun and start to unlocking everything you can get to it. That brings that little refreshment you need after those days and days of gameplay.

    If there are so many unlocks that they come at a fairly frequent bases (every hour or so), then this will be ok. Otherwise it will suck working so hard to get a laser sight on the third gun of that class for 5 hours.

    When BF2 started they made leveling way to hard… Maybe we will see the numbers adjusted after the fact for BF3 too.

    That’s what I’m talking about!

    This is the reason I kept playing Battlefield 2 for so long! I really like when you’ve to work hard to earn your stuff, and not just spend a few days, and everything is unlocked.

    Great news, thanks.

        for one trying some new gun you might not have otherwise and where was the replay on BC2 when you unlocked everything? 1. getting to level 50 and 2. getting platnium on weapons

    This game better win best game of the year for all the awesomeness dice has crammed into one blu-ray disk. for those who think that might be a little too long, the unlocks arent based upon total class level, its how much u use a specific weapon. it would take 100 hours to unlock everything in a class, it might only take you 5-10 hours to unlock all the specs on a specific weapon.

      btw does anyone know what class will be using the smg’s? it would be kinda gay if the engineer could use Carbines AND smg’s while the others are limited to one weapon type. Im hoping they will be ‘all class weapons’ cuz that would really help out recon players who want to get in on some CQC alongside the team if they don’t like being overwatch but still want the gadgets.

        I’m pretty sure I saw in the Alpha that the MP7 Submachine gun was available to all the classes, and I’m assuming there will be more submachine guns or assault rifles available to all classes

      I’m heading towards Medic or Support. Engineers turned me off in BC2 because of the way people only used the UMP 45 to kill people. That was a major pet peeve of mine. Also, when people run around with LW and SGN UPGR with a USAS-12…

          The UMP-45 is pretty good, but I like the 9A-91, it has a nicer feel and action to it.

      DICE designed the classes so perfectly in BF3, I think I’m just gonna have to play all of them! I’m not much of an assault player, but I love being a medic. I also love providing covering fire, as well as driving tanks and sniping. It looks like I’m gonna have a lot to do in BF3. :)

      I’m going to play all classes equally. Except recon, that will be a bit less for some reason.

      Off-topic: are you guys also as disappointed as me when you see there is a new blog item on bf3blog and then you notice it isn’t about the beta? It’s about time to give a clue when he’ll arrive.

      I will probably work on the assault class and the support class. only because I like being a teamplayer and ARs and LMGs are tits. I have one inquiry and worry, are weapons going to be faction specific like the M16 for Americans, and AKs for Russians. that how it was in MoH until you reached a certain lvl.

    This is kind of annoying for me. I don’t care about unlocking, I want everything from the beginning >:-D. Usually stick to one of my big multiplayer games for a year (Bad Company 2 and Killzone 2).

    Well this looks great. I’ve only had 300 hours of Battlefield Bad Company 2 gameplay (I don’t play video games during school days).

    Can’t wait to get super gaming pc. Probably because the one I have is crap.
