    FAIL.

    Only weapon camos are unlocked, the weapons are already in the game. M416 has been in from the start…

    Completing the new assignements do not unlock any new weapons! Only camos for old ones. The misleading title should be fixed.

    it’s so laughable how they have cammo for so few guns ect. Doing assignments to unlock cammo for guns you don’t use.

    At least have the assignment for one gun but have the cammo for all.

    Also the fact it’s the old boring cammo’s on different guns. They aren’t even trying.

      Well to be perfectly honest the camos are nice, but they aren’t really beneficial. Its cool and all that they are trying to add new stuff, but I could live with out the camos entirely.

      I will agree on one part. I would like at least all the weapons to one camo.

    we already have camos for those weapons , why do you need to do this ? why can’t EA/DICE take medal of honor warfighter camos & use them for all BF3 weapons & not doing this nonsense ? it’s not that hard .

    dice shouldn’t use camos as a way to encourage weapon usage from over patching it. if they release a camo, it should go to all guns. not “10″ fucking little patches with camos when only one should have it for ALL GUNS. i didnt pay for this shit

      Seriously dude? Who are you trying to kid here? Get fuck outta here “they didn’t get the gameplay right yet” wtf is it with you people? This game is FLAWLESS! a100% show me one FPS that can match BF3? when it comes to ground aerial combat, the balance between weapons, adjustments to the weapons how they give different effect and such, server stubility, zero lagg, fluent gameplay amazing all new engine, I understand if you are mad at the content we are getting so am I but dont take it out on the whole game ffs! Its amazing they worked their asses off on this.

    What do you expect when you pay upfront to a greedy company? They have no desire or need to work for your money because they already have your money. All they have to do at that point is fulfill their promise, a promise that never had anything to do with consumer satisfaction.

      I agree…

      The sad thing is i wanted premium because on the surface it offered excellent value for a game i never stop playing. I knew from day 1 i was gonna love this game (bf modern combat vet) and would buy every expansion, so for me premium seemed worth it… such a shame dicEA havnt put more effort in to certain areas but hey ho.. still playing the game and still kickin arse.

      The even sadder thing is… Id proberly still get premium for bf4.

      forget about “bonus content”, thats just clever marketing, we need to hope the quaity of maps remains high (ie not those half finished vanilla maps, and dont get me started on CloseQuarters!) and EA give dice more time to finalise their game not have it be rushed out in time to compete with a certain dead fish

    taking the number of seconds it requires to go through the inefficient consolized GUI in order to switch to the appropriate weapon camo (in regards to the map you’re playing, i.e. Digital Woodland in Caspian Border, Navy Blue in Death Valley, Desert Stripe in Gulf of Oman, etc.) is relatively anti-PTFO. that time is better spent actually playing instead of going through the trouble of changing weapon camos; the color of your weapon is negligible, especially when comparing with body camo (which is nearly as superficial as weapon camos).

    however, it’s arguably kinda sorta worth it (very debatable) to bother with changing your body camo, sometimes (to Ranger for Grand Bazaar or Veteran for Armored Shield – perhaps more so when there’s few players in the server)

    on a completely unrelated note, i would totally dig it if BF4 was like BF1942 in that there’s no unlock/ranking system with ribbons/medals and little blue text notifications for things like headshots and nemesis/avenger/saviour kills. i’d like everybody to start with everything (weapons/attachments/equipment/vehicles/specializations) available to everyone. Anarchy is Order, and i feel like not only is it fair, but it also emphasizes the sole incentive to play as being winning the match for your team, devaluing the individual vanity the modern attention-deficit gaming generation is so concerned with. lol seriously, yo. we essentially launch the game on a Facebook bootleg while comparing stats like little girls when we’re not trying to one-up each other on the forums.

      I love those little blue notifications, its like kill-crack lol

      but your very right, people (probably new to the series) are not PTFO

      Only because they’re too concerned with getting that 50th sniper kill for a CAMO – on a gun they probably cant stand to use so they get a new DOGTAG they dont really need.. to worry about silly things like winning the f’k round!

      I think it would be better if you only got to keep your precious points/unlocks/ranks and achivements if your team wins the round… I bet that would promote teamwork………

        Thats actually a really good idea, but I think that losing ALL of your points is a bit extreme. Maybe you only receive 75% of xp when you lose, or something like that. Then again, its unfair for decent players who get put onto a shitty team. The one good player may do well, but his team mates may do sub-par, therefore he loses the game and doesn’t receive all his xp.

    Ok maybe losing all the xp would be a little harsh, but how about 50% AND lose any unlocks… sounds evil I know but imagine the change in players behaviour!

    People would be pulling together and communicating ALOT more for the common goal – winning
    .
    The problem we have now is “oh… we lost, nevermind, I got my red dot sight anyway, thats all what I wanted…”

    This is the attitude thats making it hard to find those good games.. you know the ones… when the teams are working together

      but that’s why im saying that they should simply do away with unlocks/ranking completely. that way, with everything available to everyone simultaneously, it will be the best usage of assets via teamwork which help to win the match (since playing to attain* said assets takes away from the main objective of winning the match). with no unlock system, ppl will use what they’re best with (or not, especially if they’re challenging themselves with experimenting different playstyles to practice and be better at different weapons/equipments/kits/weapons) to try to win the match. i find it usually extremely self-centered and vanity indulging to have K/D, service stars (for kits/weapons), dog tags, etc. displayed on Battlelog. ppl should be proud of their skills in the game w/o having the need to make sure that others know about it, as if acknowledgement from others is the only thing which affirms said skills.

      you* know if you’re good at the game. and you’re the only person who needs to know it.

      ppl just don’t play the game for the fun of PTFO anymore. they do it for (in my opinion) much subpar incentives and lamer rewards such as (pretty much) everything displayed on Battlelog. i don’t see that as fun, but apparently many others do. w/e, to each his own. perhaps im just selfish

    i remember when they released the article stating PLAYSTATION owners get map packs 2 weeks earlier … than EA/DICE came up with n idea on how to keep their promise to the consumers- WE MUST PAY THEM – its called “premium”. if your a PLAYSTATION owner n dont have premium, EA/ DICE dont hold to their promise.. you must pay them 50$ for EA/ DICE to hold true to their end.. what a way to bribe n separate 1 gaming system community… now imagine as a whole (xbox n pc). robbing us blind..
