Battlefield 3 features a wide selection of weapons, ranging from assault rifles, to sniper rifles, machine guns, shotguns, SMGs and pistols. Follow the pages below for more details on the individual weapon groups.
I hope they choose the G36.
yeah i really hope too it would be sooo nice!
it will! i saw it on a leaked multiplayer gameplay video on youtube
yeah that weapon really owns
They have ! the G36C ,look at “SMG´s and Crabines ” !
But would be cool to have the G36CK or G36K under assault rifles !
I have the g36c, its unlockable for the engineer class, and it is so amazing
the G36c is confirmed and if u go to frankieonpcin1080p on utube u should see it used in alpha gameplay
for ALL Confirmed Battlefield 3 Weaponry/Vehicles/Arsenal see
Haha i played the beta… its in there trust me. it’s in the engineer class.
I hope they release the new versions of the AUSteyr A2 as DLC. I’ve fired one before, and it’s a very neat weapon. The Australian Army is lucky to have it……
austrian military has it mate
both have it
no you spelled Australia wrong mate.
Holy crap are you really rise against? Dude, you guys are my favorite band. OT: The G36C is probably going to be the only engineer gun i ever use. It is so awesome.
Steyr AUG is from AUSTRIA not Australia you fucking idiot fuckface
Calm your fucking farm dude, the Steyr AUG A2-3/ F88 is USED by the Australian army, produced and probably serviced as well in Austria.
he never said it was from australia you idiot.
The AUG Styer was a Austrain invention but they have since stop producing it it is now produced in sydney australia under the name F88 AUS Styer it is used by our australian troops
read the whole comment fuck wit
mp5k,galil,bushmaster acr, m4a1 carbine,claymore,car16….please dice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
someones a butt buddy for call of duties MW2
Dude this isnt call of duty. Fuck call of duty
Honestly, they should have at least the MP5 in BF3, since its one of the most popular submachine guns there. Its also used by the navy, as the MP5N variant.
your retorted dude the mp5 is outdated its not used anymore the mp7 and the um45 have replaced the mp5.
uhm, there won’t be an MP5 because the marines don’t use them
Seriously, the MP5N fuckin owns so badly. I think the only reason why its NOT in bf3 is because Activision would cry and say that theyre copying everything from cod4.
Which they are not. This game surpasses all other FPS games, I just want to make that clear.
wut a f*cking retard im in 1st special forces group and we still use the mp5 n mp5k…and a claymore is an explosive u idiot it has 1 1/2 pound of c4 throwing those pellets everywhere
Well they do have the MP5 in back to karkand atleast
The G53 is basically an MP5 that had its barrel extended to fire 5.56.
Hell yeah! I’ve just looked at the websit for MW3 and it looks the same as MW2. So it WILL be the shitest game on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC. Bring on the BATTLEFIELD!!!
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.
@Andrew I’m not disagrring with you that BF3 will look much better but mw3 wasn’t rushed lol they release games at the same time every year but switch dev teams giving the other dev team 2 years to make their new game its been like this since cod2
@random You probably noticed that he talked about MW2 as the previous game and not Black Ops…
BF3 is so much better then BC2 yahoooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was home with a friend how bought MW3. I tried it but it looks exactly like MW2. Then i showed him BF3. He hasn’t touched MW since.
a bushmaster is a ACR
no, bushmaster is a company. the acr is the Magpul Masada. bushmaster and Remington make the acr. get your facts right.
ACR actually stands for ADAPTIVE COMBAT RIFLE and is used by most firearm designers when creating rifles for armies
isnt the magpul masada made by magpul as a prototype and the sold the design and rights to bushmaster and remington and they called it the acr
Doesn’t Bushmaster make the standard issue, and Remington manufacture the Military and Law Enforcement versions? Get YOUR facts right.
They better not put claymores. I can just see a support placing unlimited claymores and resupplying them.
Why in the hell would a support class have claymores?
The RECON class is the one with claymores, and im guessing you can only have 1 deployed at a time. Dont underestimate DICE, theyve made hundreds of changes since the Alpha.
Maybe he was meaning that the recon puts down the claymore and the support class reloads his claymore supply. makes sense it happens all the time in BF2
In the beta, the support class had the claymores, which kinda sucks but they can only have a limit of 2 out at once. Otherwise, they start disappearing with the more you put down.
i like your weapons ideas but the car16′s a bit to old and outdated for this game theres a reason the m4 carbine was produced
Let me guess… those are all your favorite black ops and MW2 weapons, Right? LOL there’s no acr, car16 or Mp5k but there’s the Mp5, claymore and M4a1. Hope this helped.
Fack the galil from black ops, in black ops is it the noob weapon number 1… Please bf3 don’t add ugly camo in game!!!
l also want the ACR butt also the springfield XD and the MSR sniper as my top butt l think that the mp7 is doing way t less damedge as it does in real life cause it penetrate body armor.

Nah claymores suck in Battlefield
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.
(BF3 will win it all!)
Yeah I know about the Claymore (the iron sights as well).
But I think it’s a bit hard to put the trip line stuff in a game.
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
See you on the Battlefield
This is a wrong idea imo, I’d better have a recon then a sniper in my team.
Who wants friggin lonewolfs on the battlefield ?
they should have a spotter and sniper like they really do.
snipers are not a one man army lol, real snipers have a spotter and they tell them the length,wind speed and and adjustments the sniper has to make
It is an explosive, it has C4 to propel the shrapnel. They don’t just jump out you know
i like all weapons of battlefield but please if they choose L85A1 please more accuracy and less recoil please thank you
L85A2 is in use now,not the unreliable A1.
we need usi’s and all the guns from bc2, medal of honor, battlefield 2, the ones from counterstrike source + ones from back ops so u got a huge choice so much so you don’t know what gun you want to use
It’s spelled Black Ops… and no to your request… fuck Black Ops and their unrealistic garbage…
Fuck COD in general, all their games are repetitive and too simple to be a realistic warfare simulator like Activision has claimed.
I give you a Hooah, good sir for your opinion.
i wish that they could include some of the future weapons that military are working on
If they put future weapons in, saw Metal storm, what is the fun of that? The beowulf is the same way. Why put in the game what is just going to make it so much less fun, and a whole lot less balanced.
Well, they really should have the FN SCAR since that will soon replace the M16 family of rifles for the military…
i hated how SCAR was an smg in BC2… if its in Battlefield 3 (it definately should be) then it should be an assault rifle
There are i think only two different variations of the scar one being the scar L ( L standing for light i think) and the scar H ( H i think standing for heavy or the type of round… not realy sure). The one in bc2 was the scar L. The scar i think your referencing to, the one in MW2, was the scar H. They could have both
The scar L is a 5.56 round which is garbage and the Scar H is a 7.62 which is a great round and should be in the game also the Mk-14 (7.62) EBR not m-14 Mk-14 EBR should be in battlefield 3
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.
I think u mean AK-74. the AK 74 fires a 5.45 round, while the AK-47 fires a 7.62 round.
the FN scar is? i thought the ACR or the HK 416 is gonna replace the m16/ M4 family.
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).
HK M146 is making its way in the USMC, known as the M27 IAR.
As of now the Mk16 (SCAR-L, 5.56x45mm) and the Mk17 (SCAR-H, 7.62x51mm) is currently only being used by USSOCOM.
No the m-27 iar is a varient of the mk-416 the m-27 is replacing the m-249 not m-16 the the hk-416 is used by delta forces the m-27 is used by the us MARINES.
Those were all bfbc2 weapons, i want more choice and customization.
You sir are a dumb obviously you never played BF2 both the P90 and MP7 were in BF2 not BC2
You’re obviously dumb because your grammar was appalling and you failed to notice that he posted that comment in February and the page obviously hadn’t been updated yet.
no mp5 ?
Probably not :’(, but there is the mp7 that looks retarded… So let’s hope the mp5 is in there.
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”
yo you are the only person on this website who knows about mp5s, ITS OUTDATED!, the mp7 and the ump45 have replaced it the mp7 is my favorite pdw in the world
(also, the MP5SD would seem more suitable, since all the sub-guns have silencers)
um i could have the ugliest gun in the world but as long as it can put rounds down range and be accurate and have enough stopping power i dont care what it looks like
^ This guy.
totaly agrees with the random person
8. Random dude has right, i dont want any bad company 2 feelings in this game, more choices more cuztoms ;D!
Keep up the good work DICE ! my dream game is soon here <3
you guyz dnt kno wut gunz dey hav ur guessin no SAW instead ez a M240 u 4got da PRL da HMMVV wit MK14 just ask da ppl dey’ll tell u
DiD U EvuR go 2 KenDIRg0rdin? cas U n33d 2 lern 2 spel.
Peeple thees days, DayuM!
Haha, well said.
the m249 lmg is going to be in along side the m240
CheyTac Intervention is a must have!
It won’t be in the game. It is a neat rifle though. I’d rather like to see the M40a3 or AS50. The AS50 would be amazing to have in Battlefield 3.
the sniper rifles from the beta were, MK 11, Dragnov, Sv98, M40A5. and the AS50 cal
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.
It should be more than 10 (sigh).
PLEASE DICE THROW IN ALL THE WEAPONS IMAGINABLE TO MAN.
so that way we dont get spam of just one weapon in every game
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?
Hm… And the Ak-47??? .We need Ak-47…
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
im saying what should be in the game even though this whole site probably doesnt even make a difference to what DICE will do lol
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.
Where’s the p90.
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.
Too right mate. this aint BC3.
the new battlefield 3 should be more marines/army rangers weapons than just BFBC2 which was a spin off
