Back To Karkand Weapons
Those who pre-order Battlefield 3 get a free DLC called Back To Karkand, which will feature 4 maps remade from Battlefield 2, and a series of weapons from BF2 as well. Until now, we didn’t know what those weapons were. Thanks to our tipster Anand, we’ve gotten a preliminary list of exclusive weapons that will be available to Back to Karkand owners. What’s best, you’ll be able to use the weapons in both Back To Karkand and on regular Battlefield 3 maps. Check out the full list of the 10 exclusive weapons, with images, after the break.

        Its always been like this, Crysis 2, MoH, BFBC2, just about every title with “limited edition” on it are the first press copies of the game, they should linger around for a few months then the second press etc get published.

          Look cartoon of duty, the main reason why DICE chooses Russia as a main enemy to the U.S is because there really the ONLY enemy that can compete with us (besides China). Think about it, the hadji’s are just a bunch of raggedy ass militia with ak-47′s. While the Americans have stealth bomders, highly trained soilders, top of the line equipment, look i could go on forever point is there just not a good enough counter when it comes to U.S. Plus does’nt Thermonuclear war sound a lot funner than just shooting at people than can barely defend them self’s? (actually the last one sounds a hell of alot funner but you get my point lol).

          Alpha, all I’m saying is don’t judge an entire group of people based on a few individuals. The US has morons in it, just like every other country. That Cartoon guy that started this whole rant is a perfect example. I don’t like him as much as you don’t. But you make me not like you either when, rather than attacking him for his actions, you attack me due to some vague association I have with him (ie attacking all Americans).

          I don’t hate all the people from the middle east because of the actions of the Taliban or Al Qaeda.

          As for differences in our respective country’s histories… I don’t buy into it. It’s just as irrelevant to blame me for Hiroshima as it is for me to credit you for the pyramids at giza. Study any country’s history and you will soon realize that ignorance, hatred, and mass murder are multinational. You hit it on the head, you are young (maybe really really young) and I am young too. So stop trying to enslave us to the mistakes of a bunch of old, ignorant people in the past.

          I really am pumped for this Expansion as well as the game, but I only wish that these maps were included with the rest of the game instead of it being setup like bc2′s Vietnam.

I may not have helped my country’s history yet but im young so I have plenty of time to do it, which by the way i’ve been working on for the last 10 yrs. Whats your purpose? find it out, let it be something good and give back to the world.

          So I played the alpha, what facts are you talking about? All I see is ramblings of a adolescence teen. Yes America has a somewhat short history, but whats the point? Arab, eh? Where is your national pride, and where do you come from? My guess is your either a troll, American, or European muslim whos family is rich enough to move out of your country.You sound like you have alot of growing up to do, what are you 17? You have no concept of world relations. Are you blaming America for the middle east? America didn’t break up the Ottoman Empire, world war 1, 2, and the league of nations did. Afgan’s fought next to American GI’s for both of those wars. As for resources, Afghanistan, has dirt, and drugs, that is about it. We are introducing other agriculture over there so they do not have to rely on opium or pot. Its not America’s fault that Arab leaders want to make dynasties for themselves and become horrible dictators. Arabs need to quit living in the past, and take accountability for their race, and their beliefs. Saudi’s are just as fat and lazy as Americans are, but with indentured servants. All they have to do is sit and collect money for oil revenues. Oil which they DIDN’T discover. A few Americans went over there in the 1950′s and discovered it for them. I hope you learn something from this. I have already spent too much time with this post.

We are very sorry that during world war II we wouldn’t let the Japanese attack and kill thousands without retaliating, but next time we can just let the Germans march right on through the other European countries.

The moment you start believing you’re better than someone based on racist notions is the moment you lose. If you have such hate in your heart, join some stupid militia and get yourself killed so the rest of humanity can carry on without you using improper grammar on a video game blog.

          Its not just the last half-century. Your entire history is riddled with destruction. You’re either trying to wipe someone out, or you’re trying to wipe yourselves out. You haven’t gone more than a couple of decades without starting another War, or joining one. Or somehow providing the Weapons and resources for others to have one.

          And you can’t mind your own business. But the UN is partly to blame for that too, always having you go there and mess with affairs that are really none-of-your-fucking-concern.

          Don’t worry. American history is like the shortest course in uni.

          Anyways I strictly believe that it is conditions that make the people and if anybody complains about the general public should familiarize themselves with the laws of casualty.
          Fact is the US rolls with a free market economic scheme and a very limited political ensemble leading to misgovernment. This leads to instability and greed so people get used to the cut-throat self centered mechanics and take them as given, being the only way to make do and be happy.
          Bad conditions breed bad behaviour, having never lived outside of an recession (Yeah in Eastern Europe there has been chain recessions for 25 years now, and that is the type in which you have to prioritize which bills to pay) I can testify, as a lot of people my age have accepted violence as the day-by-day means of getting to your goals. There are very few that can assimilate the experience as you need a point of contrast, a thing Americans don’t have as you have pointed out.

          Therefore, the reason why a lot of people have negative views on Americans is
          a) they have come in contact with American foreign policy
          b) they have come in contact with American tourists

          Both aren’t very good representatives.

Kinda means we need to be there to assist ourselves in our needs. Sorry, that most of the Iraqi’s are to ignorant to see we can assist their country by building it a new. Unfortunately, their so caught up in the Quar’an’s age old saying “Death to the Infidel” to realize, that they could at least pretend they like our government wait for us to withdraw and take back over with pretty much a new country…

        You’re the reason why the media is filling the heads of the gullible, simple-minded masses, with stories of kids with “violet outrages” and saying that these games are “corrupting our youth”. Truth of the matter is this: The only “people” who are being harmed, are the virtual characters in the game. Yeah, 9/11 was a horrible time for your country but it wasn’t an entire race of people that cause it, if you haven’t realized that by now. Get some help, Cartoon of Duty. Maybe you should try playing the sims or something. That way we won’t have to be subject to your moronic, brain-washed induced comments.

        Please don’t judge us americans from stupid comments like these. Most of us don’t agree with what our government does. And retarded kids that leave comments actually have never watched the real news, like BBC world. The local news stations just talk about americans dieing over there, these meatballs just judge, and really have no clue why we are there. And yes our government likes to stick their nose in other peoples business, it boosts economy. It is sad, but true. But for the most part, we have no choice as citizens. Clinton for example: gave nato to
        tal control over our military, meaning if they decide to go to war, we must go. Which Pleads bull, and a dumb law. Unfortunately the people who say ridiculous things on the internet, are representing the the rest of the country. And have no idea that it is feeding the wrap that our government has already started.

I.E look at afghanistan they invaded a country which seemed for no reason (also iraq) and look at this, 10 years after they “found” trillions worth of natural resources in AFGHANISTAN. YEAH RIGHT! they “found it” they always knew it was there so they can take it for themselves or the corporate heads of america sent them there so your sons and daughters can die for their greed. its the same thing they did to africa – they stole the continent resources, africa has/had trillions worth of resources but are one of or if not the poorest continents on earth. Just seems wrong and the cockyness of america is what gets others angry. but ppl like u is what your country needs.

Our country has this awesome thing called freedom of speech, and while some of us chose to use it, others chose to ignore it and not start stupid shit over something somebody said. Grow up, and learn to ignore shit. You act like your still in middle school. Go do your social studies homework.

          And Mr. I’m Arab and I hate Americans, go fuck yourself. You already pointed out that you’re a hypocrite by saying you hate all Americans because “they” all talk like that. That’s a double standard, and your retarded. Just because our government isn’t making great choices doesn’t mean we all agree and support it. Oh, and you want to talk about how great countries are? In my country, we’re allowed to say what we please, as it is our God-given right to. When we see something wrong, if we chose to, we can rally, and that right is protected by the United States constitution. In your country, you get shot for disagreeing with your government, treat women like dogs, and believe in the religion of Islam, the ONLY recognized religion around the world that encourages violence towards others that don’t believe the same thing you do.

          We’ll be able to use them in non-Back to Karkand Maps though, this time won’t be like Vietnam, since the time setting is the same.

          Now if they did a 2142/2143 Expansion Pack like a lot of us want, those Weapons would probably be for those Maps only. Its because of the time setting, BF3 is set in current age, different Weapons than the Vietnam War ones, and since the Karkand Maps aren’t changing the Time Setting, they can cross them over to be used with all Maps.

          FAMAS is actually a very nice gun, it is very accurate when fired full-auto (low rise). The reason a gun like it in CoD would be OP is because IW sucks at balancing more than like 5 guns.

          I digress, while yes, it was in MGS first, it most surely fell into the FPS genre with the Clarion in CS, and then again in CS:S. Since that could be considered an ‘inherited’ weapon loadout in a game, it only really was used next in the Battlefield 2: Euro Force booster pack, where it (rightly) was given to the Euro team, since it is one of the most produced internationally sold ARs in the EU. CoD’s usage of it probably inherited from CS:S and Army of Two/R6:Vegas. I lol when I see it in CoD because it looks SO WRONG.

        Agree, thinking… BF2 – Blops – BF3.

        Thinking… CoD Switchovers going Blops – BF3, never played BF2, thinking BF3 actually taking something from Blops.

        Well, maybe. I mean, they are throwing in some CoD Switchover stuff, could be they chose some BF2 Weapons also featured in Blops for them.. Who knows.

      Haha what? Why does everything have to be “CoD CoD CoD” all the fucking time?

      All these weapons are from the best FPS ever, Battlefield 2. Now shut up with your CoD ranting.

        yeah where’s the “BLOPS is taking from BF2″ comments??? BF3 is taking from BF2 and other BF games. BLOPS: It’s even got a stupid abbreviation because it’s a stupid game.

        Bethesda trying to prove they own the word “Scrolls” in Court. Activision should prove they own all digitalized version of any Weapon that’s included in any of their Call of Duty Games.

        You’ll see, it’ll happen… One day.

    Maybe they will include EU vs China?
    There are almost all faction exclusive weapons for all kits:
    EU:
    Support-MG36
    Engineer-Famas
    Recon-L96
    Assault-L85
    China:
    Support-Type95
    Engineer-Type97 (because it’s carbine version of Type(QBZ) 95)
    Recon-Type88 sniper
    Assault-???
    And general:
    Jackhammer
    Mp-5
    PP-19

        Yeah they had PP-19 for antitank and Chinese spec ops had QZB-97. But now engineers have carbines instead of SMG’s so if we will get Chinese or whatever faction it will use QZB because it’s carbine.

      No way, China is WAY too paranoid to be repped as a faction in a wargame, their nervous hysterical commie government would instantly cry foul to whatever company and country was producing the game.

      HK53′s already in the game. I know cause I used it in the finale of the campaign, and it had more than 20 rounds (so it wasn’t a G3), and had a rifle mag.

        It is an automatic shotgun in BF2. It is the first unlock for the engineer class. It has a 7 round revolver magazine (10 round in real-life), a very slow reload and a very heavy recoil. If you got good at controlling the beast and limiting the firing of the thing, it was pretty good.

      BC2 Vietnam pack was sort of a mix between the two; you get 5 maps and about 15 new weapons, but you can only use them on Vietnam maps (‘cuz they’re old-ass Vietnam weapons). It also has a separate menu, but on the other hand, it’s not like it has tons of maps to play, so I guess if you’re a PC player and used to epic expansion packs, it’s a weak one. Back to Karkand looks to be more reminiscent of the expansion packs of yore though. I’m hoping they bring back the HIND for some of these maps that was featured in BF2 (which I have little to no game time with), since that was one of my favorite vehicles in BC2 (which I have played).

        It is more of a booster pack than an expansion, you will probably have vanilla+booster servers, and booster-only servers. An expansion (in classic dice lingo) wouldn’t have that.
