Battlefield 3 MP5K
With the release of the new trailer yesterday, EA released a Close Quarters fact sheet as well. The fact sheet includes much of what we already know about Close Quarters, but it also includes a full list of the 10 new weapons in the DLC. The list:

  • AUG Assault Rifle
  • SCAR Assault Rifle
  • ACW-R Carbine
  • MTAR-21 Carbine
  • M417 Sniper Rifle
  • JNG-90 Sniper Rifle
  • L86LSW Machine Gun
  • LSAT Machine Gun
  • MP5K Tactical Machine Pistol
  • SPAS-12 Shotgun

There are a couple of old favorites on that list from Bad Company 2 and other Battlefield games, mainly the Steyr AUG, FN SCAR, and the SPAS-12 shotgun. The new Close Quarters weapons will be unlocked the same way Back To Karkand weapons were unlocked: through in-game “Assignments”.

      lets protest our dislike of the CQC maps buy waiting a week after release (so we arent part of their week 1 statistics) and just buy armoured kill the second it is released so they see which type of bf maps we care about

        The bestiality laws in this country are a joke. If a man wants to have sex with a dog that’s his choice. I say that in order to protest these laws we should boycott this DLC for one week, hit the government bureaucrats in the pocket where it hurts. Everyone who wants to have sex with their dog, do as me and ikillzombs are doing and don’t buy the DLC.

      To be honest, I’ve found a real kick from running around with a bolt action with iron sights since they’ve become OHK up close (I thought I was absolutely going to despise this since I never snipe).

      I haven’t been too crazy about these maps, but I could see some real potential with iron sight sniping in these CQC maps.

      You have 2 months to save 15 bucks/euro’s. That shouldn’t be too hard imho.

      Fn scar should be the SCAR-L, the SCAR-H and L are FN made originally.

      For the rest I hope the guns really add something unlike some guns in the b2k, or at least bring a fitting value to the game. The fortress looks more fun then the office thing btw, also it looks pretty much like showdown from cod4 but with a basement and ofcourse destruction 2.0.

    Along with weapons, what about new attachments? Or equipment? Maybe a new optic. Or, a new launcher for engineer. Maybe something to replace the grenade like a smoke grenade or red smoke for squad leaders? New vehicle specializations, new shotgun rounds, new camos, and new knife models. After a while we will have a LOT of weapons, some we probably haven’t heard of, which will add more variety! :D

      Where in Skyrims fact sheet does it say that they can have a racing dlc pack with new ferraris and lamborghinis. Just because you can do it doesnt mean it fits what the game is all about. (Large Maps).

      People dont realize that you cant cater to all audiences at once. There is only so many you can cater too before it just becomes a shallow game. Honestly the smaller the audience you cater to the more the fans will love the game, since they dont have to compete for your support. But pretty soon battlefield will support close quarters, big maps, rpg fans, puzzle game fans. At some point you have to draw the line.

        Some of you guys are blowing this WAY out of context.

        “We thought a lot about Battlefield 2 and how Battlefield 3 would relate to it. The mindset at DICE during the development of Battlefield 2 was pretty much: “Play the game our way, or play something else”. Now, we have made a conscious effort to reverse that mentality. The goal with Battlefield 3 is to offer a vast variety of gameplay experiences and to be inviting to everyone. We’re not telling you how to play the game. You choose.” -Lars Gustavsson, one of the BF3 multiplayer designers

        Is Lars saying that Battlefield 3 is designed to appeal to everyone, even RPG players, MMO players, puzzle game players? Hell no. They designed it to appeal to more players, but not as far as puzzle game players or mmo-rpg players.

        The simple fact remains; DICE is no longer catering to the BF2 style player base whether we like it or not. Battlefield 3 is designed to “offer a vast variety of gameplay experiences and to be inviting to everyone”. In the end, we all get something we like; Close Quarters, the “Vanilla” Battlefield 3 experience, and of course the upcoming Armored Kill and End Game DLC.

        So you either have to learn how to accept the fact that Battlefield is evolving and designed to appeal to a broader player base, or go find a new game to play.

          Ok, I was not serious when i said that they would cater to puzzle game players. It was mainly to emphasize that you cant cater to everyone in one game.

          The mindset at DICE during the development of Battlefield 2 was pretty much: “Play the game our way, or play something else”.

          That has got to be the greatest thing i have heard DICE say. If they brought back this mentality i would undoubtably buy all of their content. But so long as their on the whole “lets appeal to everybody cause that makes us the most money” mentality their is slim chance i will buy their content.

          Either make the game for close quarters ONLY or make it for big maps ONLY. I dont want to feel like im competing with other fans were supposed to be unanimous on what we want in the game.

          Oooooh close but no cigar there Nate Dog. DICE/EA will only produce DLC they know will sell. Now unless you know EVERY single person in the BF3 playerbase, you have zero idea what maps they actually play the most. Now, from what can be inferred from server data, maps like Metro and Seine are the most played maps, so what do you honestly think DICE are gonna cater for first?

          You may not like it, and the so-called BF purists around here (and don’t start, i’m a BF series vet from BF1942 demo day one) have a small fit when you point it out to them. I personally love BF3. Could there be improvements — hell yes and I think they need a bigger team to address them. Does it kill my fun playing it and stopping me from buying the oh-so-dreaded DLC ………….. no, not in the slightest.

        Your comment is the epitome of stupidity. Please don’t try to act like you are anywhere near the voice of the battlefield community and I won’t either. I am just hear to tell you how stupid you sound.
        You attack COD players in a “13-Year old, COD-like” manner. You call them “TDM tards” and act as though you are as old as my daughter (thats about 10). Battlefield MUST evolve in order to even rival the fanbase that COD has. I do not play COD, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t know that their sales/fanbase is higher than that of BF. If you don’t like this game, then pack up your shit and go play ARMA. I don’t want you here, and I can bet you a shiny penny that no one else does. People like you bring down the BF community and you don’t give any feedback to the games’ creators. If you really want people to take you seriously, try using some big boy manners and leave some real feedback. You have successfully wasted my time.

        Personally, I believe that this DLC will be fun as hell (isn’t that what games are about?). Sure, BF started off with large maps, vehicles and huge servers, but sometimes you have to stray away from that in order to appease the masses. I love vehicle gameplay, but sometimes a good session of “COD-like” gameplay is what a lot of people need. The weapons list seems absolutely perfect, but I hope that DICE is able to test the crap out of them and stamp out any outstanding OP issues. I will definitely be looking forward to the return of the AUG. The JNG-90 looks pretty damn awesome and hopefully it performs proportionately. I play on console, so hopefully the destruction 2.0 will be close to the magnitude of PC’s destruction. So far the destruction on base maps and b2k just isn’t cutting it for me (*cough* DICE *cough*, and I do understand that consoles have their limitations). This “vertical” gameplay as they call it looks to be a step in the right direction, but hopefully it won’t be a bunch of choke points that people can only dream of getting through. That’s my 2¢ and hopefully HOMEBOY MCGEE can learn to be a little more intellectual.

      I’m with you on that friend! More camo from different armies would be awesome. I also think if they add like more attchaments would be cool! Honestly a hybrid sight or maybe dual mags would be a nice addition just more unlocks to customize EVERYTHING from characters to attachments. Id like that. Now before you flame me for being a cod n00b, just remember a hybrid sight is very practical and is in use by the US and other militaries :) it doesn’t wxist in COD only

      K see y’all at the fortress!! still love BF3

      L86LSW is a brilliant choice.

      Glad DICE aren’t ignoring the fact that a lot of Brits play BF3!

      Now if only they’d add the L115A3 we’d be set!

      I’m hoping Armored Kill will add Euro vehicles like BF2 Euro Force did. Although it’ll probably be more like Armored Fury was.

        It would be logical to get more Euro base Tanks / Fighters, think about it would you rather choose a Abrams MBT or A Challenger II or even the Leopold. It would be also nice for them to have the Russian Bulwark SU47 (beast of a fight!) ND the Typhoon Euro Fighter!

    Ah yes, a couple of new sniper rifles included in the close quarters DLC. Makes a lot of sense to me. Are they including butt stroke melee or what?

    MP5K Tactical Machine Pistol
    So, its going to be a secondary. Might be the only secondary I like more then the M9 after the DLC comes out.
    Don’t know why but the M9 just worked better for me then it did with all the rest of the pistols…

      No, it won’t be a secondary. Most likely it’ll be a pdw. This is following the same trend B2K did with two all kit weapons (pdw & shotgun) and two guns for each class. It would be interesting if it were a secondary, but being that its a submachine gun (which can be classified as a machine pistol), its most likely a pdw, just like the MP7, which you could equally classify as a machine pistol as well.

    Theres bound for one of these weapons to be Over powered… you know what that means guys?
    Patch= Not usable anymore,
    Meh :( I was hoping for the weapons to be sold separately, I don’t want to buy the maps!
    Imagine, RPGs, M320, Shotguns…(Spamming)
    Is that a BF game? No thats CoD, Screw this DLC . biggest F*$% up DICE has ever made!
    Imagine all those noobs afterwards not giving out ammo/health in the “Armoured kill” due to this DLC!

      There are servers that will auto-kick you if you use a weapon not allowed. I’m sure this will apply in the DLC.

    Just looked the HK417 up on wiki and …

    “In addition, a well proven 50-round, low profile drum magazine developed by HK for the HK21E machine gun can be fitted to the HK417 for use in support and sustained fire applications”

    Please say it so in the game, I am very lazy and hate to reload

      the HK417 is a m416 with 7.62mm NATO rounds instead of 5.56mm NATO. in the same wiki page shows that it comes with a 10 or 20 round standard. i believe it will be in the same semi-auto sniper category as the SKS, i mean, not as much damage as the mk11, svd, m39, but more spammable with a (i believe) 20 round magazine SKS like since the SKS is unique (for now)

        The SKS must be one of the most underused weapons on Battlefield 3, only seen a couple of people use it. i think the HK417 (M417) will follow suit. If you do use it though don’t use it as a Sniper Rifle simple use it as a Marksman’s Rifle, Attach Scope of no more than x4, grip and Laser sight / Suppressor. I’ve use this setup on the SKS and its owns! (If you dont have the suppressor on you do get alot of aggro! trust me! =])

    I will buy cause it is a new game with-in a game the dev’s are working at their post giving us Add On Content,DLC, Persistence,new game mode, and cross my fingers for it in the future New CO-OP??? idk maybe.

    “The HD Destruction in Close Quarters lets players riddle the environment with bullets, reducing entire locales to ruin. Everything from furniture to plaster can be shot to pieces, and players can see the result of the mayhem as rubble and broken pieces pile up on the floor.

    The tight level design and many opportunities for vertical gameplay mean players will need to bring their A game if they want to stay alive in this highly competitive theater of war.”- http://www.battlefield.com/battlefield3/1/close-quarters.

    all you can do in COD is Break glass cause their $#!++% @$$ game engine http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zgb8mb7E7kQ. no investment there for their players.

    let cod players get off the crack(COD) and go to rehab(BF3) if CQC pleases EA and they don’t ask for it too much cool good realize EA has been around for a long while now and corporations don’t last if they suck thats why they’re still here .
