The M27 IAR (Infantry Automatic Rifle)is a replacement to the M249 SAW and is considered a light machine gun. It's not much different than the other assault rifle based LMG platforms.

The P90 TR is a triple rail equipped P90 that will probably come into play with the accessories available for unlock in the game.

Portable anti air launchers!! I guess with the amped up air threat we need a way to counteract it!
Orpheus-Telos  +   1561d ago
Yup, would be kinda hard shooting down planes/helicopters with an Assault Rifle or even a Handgun. xD

UMP-45 ftw

P90 says hi
xYLeinen  +   1561d ago
i could not be more happy with the amount of weapons..
Miiikeyyy  +   1560d ago
I'm quite surpised, There's way more than I expected :o
iamnsuperman  +   1561d ago
There is a lot of weapons here (more than most games).I just wished there were more (like hundreds). Never going to happen in games but I can still dream

on a small note where is the MP5. Its pretty standard for modern shooters

MP7 is the new standard
trenso1  +   1561d ago
standard since when?
CRUCIALxTHREAT  +   1560d ago
MP5 are pretty out of date now. Just because it is in CoD doesn't mean it is being used a lot still. See MP7
iamnsuperman  +   1560d ago
I actually looked around about this and apparently the UMP is the successor to the MP5 while the MP7 was made to rival the P90 and to be used as either a pistol or a sub machine gun

The MP5 may be old but it was a sub machine gun should be. Able to kill but not go through somebody. Look at Wiki list for who uses it. It is old but to ignore it is a little odd because it is a very well used weapon. To say it is not used a lot is an understatement (85 different countries)

I hope to god that the shotguns won't be able to shoot so damn far in this as they could in BC2
one2thr  +   1561d ago
Actually a slug round can travel those distances, but tend to be less accurate and buck shots (pellets) can travel quiet a distance as well, but distance and power and accuracy decrease greatly after 60 yards ( If I'm remembering it correctly)
rabidpancakeburglar  +   1561d ago
Well I've been shot from some pretty damn far distances(with seemingly good accuracy) with what is supposed to be a close quarters weapon so I'm not a fan of that kind of realism.
one2thr  +   1561d ago
Lol yeah I know what you mean, I myself have given so called "snipers" headshots from great distances especially with the Neostag (that weird lookin shot gun) or the Spaz-12
Sheikah  +   1561d ago
Yup. Saw some weapon demonstrations where they told fact from fiction. opposite to common belief, shotgun pellets do *not* magically vanish when they travel longer than 50 metres ;)
DanSolo  +   1560d ago
Yeh I have had people shoot and kill me with a single shot from half way across the map with a shotgun... just not possible in real life as the power is gone from that type of round!

The other day I went shotgun recon for a change of pace and I was finding that I was getting some pretty easy kills from a distance with the shotgun and it really didn't feel right..... still I happily ran around taking advantage of it though!
Rearden  +   1561d ago
Agreed. Sniping with shotguns across the map was retarded in BC2
meshuganeh  +   1561d ago
I was really hoping for the Israeli Tavor TAR-21. Oh well

theflyindutchman  +   1561d ago
OMG look at all that!
Now that is sexy!
Rattlehead20  +   1561d ago
Why do games NEVER have the SA80?
Ducky  +   1561d ago
Is that the same thing as BlackOps' Enfield?

Oh well, most of my favorite guns are there.
Although I'd prefer some old-fashion bolt-action rifles for some fun.
DtotheRoc  +   1561d ago
YES needs single shot bolt actions like the mosin nagant to have some real fun with eh?
Pandamobile  +   1561d ago
That was my favourite BF2 weapon :(
rockerboy  +   1561d ago
because its crap
Rearden  +   1561d ago
Battlefield 2 had it :)
Upbeat  +   1560d ago
ano man, i wanted the XM8 ASwell like
one2thr  +   1561d ago
M16, M4, M60, Scar-H, and the G3...... I'm ready to get out of the pan (BF:BC2, great game) and into the FIRE!(BF3)...... Its almost time to unleash the venom!
Elwenil  +   1561d ago
Yeah, I've very happy to see the G3 come back, especially if I can outfit it with a larger magazine for 30 full rounds, lol.
Gamer_Z  +   1561d ago
Thats a lot more weapons than MW3

Good list and I can't wait for this game. I just wish they were putting the British and Chinese bullpup assault rifles in the game as well.
SLEDGE  +   1561d ago
In the trailer you can see a guy with javlin killing 2x people... I'M SO HAPPY :D

Also 60mm Mortar? :O
Another thing that i was hoping for in BF3, but... will it be a call in mortar, or a FUCKING mortar you carry with you?

In the trailer, you see a driving little IDE clearing drone, seeing how that isnt in the "Weapons" im guessing its stasionary, like the flying drone in BC2?
synchroscheme  +   1561d ago
That's a damn fine list of weapons. Hopefully the USAS-12 or Saiga 20k won't be as much of an annoyance as they are in BC2.
Northtouch  +   1561d ago
Fuck. Yes.

i noticed there was no faction specific hand grenades, thats a problem because the Russians us f1 and rdg grenades which look nothing like American m67 grenades.

The MG3 is the upgraded and modernized version of the German's MG42 used during WWII. AKA Hitler's Buzzsaw. American GIs knows of this fearsome weapon and its ability to switch barrel instantaneous allowing for endless fire as long as there are ammo. Those who face MG42 fast rate of fire head on are incredibly brave or incredibly foolish.


The American M60 is based on the MG42. The German army is the major country to employ the MG3 nowadays.

I see. But still the feel of the MG3 in game feels way better than the M60. The iron sights are way better too.
AKS  +   1561d ago
I strongly approve of these:

PRHB HYBRiiD  +   1561d ago

loobtube  +   1561d ago

loobtube  +   1560d ago
Thanks for the link HYBRiiD :)
M-M  +   1561d ago
I want to see what the m40a5 is like. I can't wait to use all of these weapons, couldn't be more happy with the selection.
ThrazN7  +   1561d ago
get to the choppa xxCODELITESNIPERXX
Jack_DangerousIy  +   1561d ago
Crap! I can't look at this...

I want it all to be fresh when I see it as I unlock them.

Not too long now!
Chocoboh  +   1561d ago
Claymores / Mortars and Smoke grenades

well then.. this is gonna be a mess
SAE  +   1561d ago
no ACR ?. :(
GamerPS360  +   1561d ago
no VSS :(
Rearden  +   1561d ago
I was hoping we'd see the M14 as well.
khamvongsa09  +   1561d ago
G36C & F2000? *Faints*
Banok  +   1561d ago
well I googled alot of the list and one of the machine guns is a sniper and one of the handguns is a tank!
but apparently its confirmed as an official document.

also a fair few on the list are slight variations, like the glock 17 and 18 are gona look the same.

and often in shooters when you look at the real actual gun stats on sites like denkirson, you will see most guns of the same category have identical stats. (hopefully i'm wrong)
Sugreev2001  +   1560d ago
I'm going to stick with my AKS74U,it's the weapon I've been most comfortable with in Bad Company 2.
