There's an easy way to unlock the new weapons.

Play with friends. Let them be dummies, and literally get nailed so you unlock. Then rinse and repeat the other way around.

Whoever thought of that system for unlocking new weapons is an idiot... it should be based on how long you play like everything else.

...

New maps are too closed in (in my opinion), Frontlines is way too lengthy (I've seen 1hr 30 minute games), and there are glaring oversights (e.g staying in your spawn zone with tanks and slaughtering your enemy).

Then theres really bad depth of field, quite a few glitches (ability to get stuck in scenery), possibly the shittiest new tank in the history of war games, and a completely pointless behemoth that in pre release was made to look way bigger than it is.

All in all I'd say this first release is a complete letdown.

Also seems like they've broken grenades, tripwire bombs, and made the other tanks weapons completely piss weak.

I'm such a hypocrite, ended up getting the maps last night. Had a few OK games.
Does anyone else think the grfx of the new maps seem different. Like kind of pixelated?

How satisfying is that iron sights shot at 200m eh?
Aggressive scout is one of my fave playstyles

Woah, now THERE's a match I can get behind!
I love lengthy matches

It's DICE, OFC release is going to be shite

I feel like a complete noob in this new expansion. Came back after a few months off and admittedly ive only had a few rounds of the new maps but i havent had any luck unlocking the medic guns which is what ive been aiming for first as thats what i typically play.

The auto loading is shite, 5 round clip, i realise again why i never used it before, struggle to take down more than 1 person at a time as the clips so small. The maps ive played are the one with tunnels which only seems to last 20-25 mins and is so congested i end up with more handgun than rifle kills or the map with the forest on fire which my team either gets steamrolled on or you find yourself getting sniped by some dude on a hill.

Early days though i suppose.

iirc the autoloading 8.xmm medic gun has one of the quickest time-to-kills upto medium range, up there with the automatico. just that 5 shot limit holds it back big time. fun gun to use, forces you into an (even) less aggressive playstyle than my usual medic style, i tend to play 2nd line or only provide more firepower in a frontline attack (never go alone). that one guy you can engage at a time though - that guy gets wasted, lol. you cover or fall behind a team-mate meatshield, heal up and then melt another face, rinse repeat.
sticking in 2nd line keeps those heals and revives coming too, makes you an all-round more useful team player.

handgun choice very important with that gun for when you get caught out though.
and your dance moves lol

my impressions on the DLC: meh.
the recent changes and the upcoming ammo 2.0: nope nope nope nope

im also going off the game in general already.. waay quicker than bf4 (which was my least played bf game ever) but more longevity than battlefront, for sure..

will be buying rising storm 2 vietnam day one, and battlegrounds.
i still play red orchestra 2 from time to time, that shit came out before bf: bc2 era. i need my FPS to take itself slightly more seriously methinks. some more meat to it, something i can sink hundreds of hours into.

fucking dice man

wow, I havent played in 2 weeks, since then I sold my cpu and there has been the big patch. I dont know if the patch has slowed things up but I find the game much jerkier than it was, either that or my backup gamer is worse than I remembered .... much game lag, missed shots and poor experience all round. Im going to hold off until I get my big rig running again.

Bought this at launch got a bit bored after 100 hours due to repetition, on the fence about getting the DLC is it worth it?

BF1 hasn't had the longevity of BF2 BC2 BF3 & BF4. first game I haven't bought the DLC for straight away

I'm finding the same - it's so perfect that I want to absolutely keep playing it over and over but I'm just finding myself so bored; when when squading up with friends.
