    Ugh… You can tell who plays CoD. Just the main weapons for each side, no weapons “for both sides”. No supressors or random attachments, just keep it realistic and simple. Too many CoD fans wanting every single failed prototype in the game. Just M16A4, AK, M4, AKs74u, M9, Grach, M249, RPD, RPG-7 and AT4. Please, keep it realistic. If I missed any weapons tell me :)

    You’ll se both FAMAS and L85 – check “Back to Karkand” weapons.
    Btw, M27 and G36c should be removed to proper section. The Steyr AUG wasn’t there in beta, too.

    I wish Battlefield 3, and the future Battlefield Series in general will FINALLY introduce the FAMAS F-1, FAMAS G2 or the new FAMAS F1 LP as an EX Legionnaire in the 2eREI (I always prefer to use the FAMAS F-1 in games I play) that I used for 5 years during my time in the French Foreign Legion. I like Bullpups in general but I don’t know why Battlefield 3 choose to use a PSO copy of a copy? The Iranian Khaybar KH2002 is a direct copy of the POS Chinese QBZ-97A, which is a copy of the FAMAS F-1. So instead of putting the Original FAMAS F-1, they opt for the PSO copy of a copy? I would also like to see the Israeli IMI Tavor TAR-21, AT LEAST they have the FNH FS2000 & Steyr AUG A3, guess I’ll have to use the copy of a copy KH2002 and pretend it’s my FAMAS F-1, C’est la vie.

      It’s definitely not just you, I can’t believe on the most modern Battlefield to date, they are lacking the modern firearms that are being used by the most Elite Military Forces in the World. I.E. The French Foreign Legion, I spent 5 years of my life in Le Legion using the FAMAS F-1, & towards the end of my contract I was using the FAMAS F1 LP (Low Profile) It’s the latest edition of the FAMAS family of Bullpup assault rifles, although I have NO idea why they put the FAMAS F-1 that has been in service since 1978 in COD: MW2 & Put the latest edition of the FAMAS, the F1 LP in COD: Black Ops, isn’t that suppose to be set in the Cold War era ? But as an Ex Legionnaire & Veteran of 2 tours of Afghanistan, when I play a game I like to see the game has the Bullpup/ Assault Rifle that I used and took care of for all those years & use that FAMAS in what ever game…

      Any other Military Vets Ex or Active feel like using the Rifle that may have saved your life or you just really like and spent so much time with it, cleaning ,field stripping learning how it operates and can name every spring, screw, nut & bolt it has ? Wouldn’t you want to play with THAT Assault Rifle ?
