          Well said. It does look the same, but the thing with this whole “BF3 Vs. MW3″ is that with the announcement of battlefield 3, a huge shadow was cast over infinity ward, so they fought back by quickly announcing MW3. But this probably means that the game was rushed, and a rushed game is pretty much always horrible. DICE probably had 2 design teams though; 1 for bad company and bad company 2, and another for Battlefield 3, which they have probably been working on since Battlefield 2, cos there was about a 1.5 year gap between Bad company 2 and Battlefield 3. There is no way anyone can create such an awesome-looking game in the space of a year and 7 months. DICE have probably spent a lot of time making this game. Take this all from a guy with a veteran status of 5. MW3 was announced just under 2 years after MW2.

          So what are we exactly looking at here? A rushed game made through about 2 years against a game which has probably been on the development desk from 2005.
          Infinity ward will be VERY sorry.

      if their are claymores, they better not be CoD crap types, they better be real remote det, or trip line det, but not that laser sensor bull.
      and they better be directional charges that shoot like shotguns, and not that explosive stuff, hell, the iron sights should be useable
      (believe it or not, the claymore has frign iron sights, and it’s not really an explosive, it will not blow down a hard concrete wall, or tank. it’s only meant as an anti-personnel ambush trap)

      I know they can only limit their ability in character customization, but I hope there is a little, such as the specs actually changing your look a little, like the bandoleer or trauma plates actually being visible would be cool.
      there are many things we can wish from the game, only cause its such a great series, but wishful thinking can ruin a game when it comes out, I’ll be content with anything in this game, as they did add what they could to follow up with the constant issue of balance.

        Would be much to complex.
        Don’t like them the CoD style (almost spamming every style) as well but I would like them even with the lasers in Battlefield (only for snipers to cover there six of course ;)

          The Mk16 (SCAR-L) is not an SMG, it an AR.

          James, why don’t you go and explain how the 5.56x45mm cartridge is “garbage” to all of those who were killed by said cartridge.
          Granted, I feel that the 7.62x51mm is a better cartridge by far, yes.
          But the 5.56 isn’t “garbage”. There is a reason why it’s been used for many a year and more to come. It’s effective, though I could think of more effective cartridges myself other than 7.62.

          If there is to be an M-14 variant, it should be the M39, currently being used by the USMC as a DMR. Though, with the confirmation of the M110 or Mk11, I don’t think we’ll see any M14′s…

        In the beta, the SCAR-H was under the engineer class, and it was a carbine. A carbine is just a smaller assault rifle, but fires the same rounds an assault rifle does. For example, M4 and Ak74U are both carbines, but fire the same rounds as an M16 and AK 47, respectively.

        The reason the ACR is not going to replace them is because it got recalled due to overheating issues. It cant take continuous automatic fire.
        Also, the xm-8 Rifle would melt on repeated fire because the exterior is basically plastic (it’s really a carbon material, but it melts as fast as plastic with extended fire, which heats up the gun causing it to melt).

        id like the MP5 (in it’s plain form, or Navy variant) but in all truth the MP7 is more killer, but reason why it shouldn’t be here is that it’s a machine pistol, and it would be even better then the UMP. (MP7 has a big, almost rifle like bullet) so it would be an imbalance, the be-all engineer gun, plus it aint even used on fields, it’s for S.W.A.T., and CQ groups like that.
        (it’s kinda funny that there are sub-guns to begin with, but it makes sense cause they take ‘em cause theres hardly much room in a tank for extra stuff, or a full rifle. thats also why there are carbines in the sub-gun class, cause there short)
        so yea, MP5 would be a neat sub-gun. would fill a role like “most stable in constant fire”

    there should be a custom gun that you can use parts of the guns (stocks, muzzles, suppressors, sights, bodies, semi/full auto capiblity, ect.) to creat your version of an AS-K1K3R.

      If such a thing happened, heres what would happen

      Spamed sniper- Barret .50 & “Intervention”

      Spamed LMG- M60, Browning.50, and maybe some stupid “death machine” Minigun.

      Spamed rifle- SCAR-H. AK47, Beowulf.50 carbine, TXD (american made 6.8 chambered version of AUG)

      spamed SMG- MP7, PPSH, some other stupid bullet hose.

      Spamed shotgun- ELEPHANT GUN, or one the new-nowadays double tube, single barrel pumpactions, or AA12.

      spamed grenade, handheld nuke
      spamed bullet- armor piercing hollow point incendiaries! with RAINBOW TRACERS!!

      spamed vehicle- the remote controlled robots packing those “deathmachines” AND AA12′s

      as you can see, there wouldnt be any fun in a world were bullshitery wins over team work, tactics, and hardwork.
      …unless CoD is your game, LOL.

        Wow half of the weapons you said are against the geneva convention. i swear to god i dont care if I spelt anything wrong i’m here to prove a point not here for a lecture on how tospell. And also another thing I like how people think they know everything by looking up weapons and tactics used by going to wikipedia. Good job. Why not fire a real weapon and see how it’s like and no your airsoft gun doesn’t count.

    the guns that SHOULD be in the game based on the time (2014) are M16/M4 (already in it), SVD-Dragunov, Stinger Rocket Launcher, RPG-7 (im sure is in it), AK-47/AK variants (they already have some sort of AK in BF3 anyway), RPK, DP-46, M40-A3/M40-A5, M110, M870, M1014, M240 (i think this one is in already too)

    and the two that i really want in BF3: HK-416 and SCAR-L
    i hear both are very similar in terms of accuracy as well as reliability and a few other factors (and both use same rounds) so i wouldnt mind if one was in the game and one wasnt… all i know is at least ONE of them has to be in this (:

    These are most likely not to be in bf3 because the company’s trying to make the game as realistic as they can. The m4 is in there so that narrows down the m416 isn’t going to be there. Hopefully the m16a4 is going to be in there instead of the m16a2. But these are all possibilities for the game but I think the forum idiots don’t know what they are talking about.

    well, for the first FN SCAR has two selction in real time, but both are assualt rifles, 5.56mm NATO or 7.62mm NATO, FN SMG is the P90, and like the other guy said about AEK 971 he speaks the truth, but well why not use the AK5 a or b(Heckler & Koch G3) instead of AEK 971, then when it comes to M95 well why not use the M92 or M2000 for a change eh? then you got the company AI that mades the artic warfare series that almost every half europe use! the last one is that the jet F/A 18 is not as good as JAS 39 Gripen and that multi-role aircraft goes a lot faster and can carry a little more bombs. some other guns could be thrown in maybe the Steyr IWS/AMR 2000, I know it still in prototype, but well that rifle with right ammunition could shoot throught a damn tank! that would be something eh?

    on second thought, the SCAR-H would fit more into this game than SCAR-L, realistic-wise and balance-wise. i notice in a lot of fps’s, they put a lot of guns that are pretty similar in accuracy in reality such as SCAR-L and M4. i think if they were to put rifles in like the M16 (which they have) then they should have the SCAR-H over SCAR-L. the H is a 20-mag 7.62mm NATO (which means it packs a punch) but still has pretty low recoil. not extremely low.. i wouldnt say its as accurate as the SCAR-L because its not but having a rifle like the SCAR-H would give some kind of diversity. and i hear the SCAR-L is losing manufacturing and are being canceled throughout the world anyway… or something like that because soldiers prefer/need the SCAR-H more. i learned that today thats why i changed my mind about SCAR-L :P

      Accuracy is very similar between the two SCAR rifles. When you get past 300 yards, the .308 is more accurate.
      (Note: I am speaking of factory loads, not match grade or reloaded ammo. If you reload .223 correctly it can maintain good accuracy out to 600 yards.)

      The reason for the Mk16 being cut, would be due to costs more than anything. USSOCOM still has M4′s to fall back on. The reason for the Mk17 sticking around is because special operations forces do not have an AR chambered in 7.62x51mm.
      However, FN-Herstal denies that the Mk16 is canceled, while USSOCOM claims it is. FN-USA hasn’t really said that much.

      Have you ever fired a rifle chambered in .308 win.? Recoil on a .30 caliber weapon isn’t “low”. 7.62x51mm has a nice kick to it. Since the Mk17 weighs 7.91 pounds (empty) that will only increase the recoil felt by the operator. As this is light for a rifle chambered in 7.62.

    Dude, you just copied the BFBC2 weapons into this list. Which is stupid, for several reasons:
    1) The game is BF3, a sequel to BF2. Not to BC2. The list has only BC2 weapons.
    2) There are many experimental or discontinued weapons in the list. For example, AEK 971 is not the standard RU rifle, it’s the AK74M. Or SPAS12, which they do not make anymore.
    3) We are fighting the PLR, not Russians. Yes, they use a lot of russian weaponry in Middle East, but they have also some weapons of their own (Like Galil in Israel).

      Speaking about Israeli weapons, they should include Tavor. The game must have a lot of current weapons that you can customize any way you want and plenty of guns never seen in BF series.
