Another tasty tweet from DICE’s Alan Kertz today concerning Battlefield 3. When asked if World War 2 or veteran weapons would be in the game, here’s what Kertz had to say:
Really well written story. All two lines of it. -_-
so what do you think the weapon is? I'm opting for full-auto Gustav with unlimited ammo and no reload.... you can never have enough of spamming people with rpgs right ? :/
alien blaster from fallout would be nice
Ray gun, wanderwaffe, thundergun
A Spud gun.
G11? Im serious, it would be sweet in Battlefield 3 with 2- 3 Shot bursts killing somebody.
The G11, IMO, is one of the single dumbest and worthless weapons ever.
^ This People don't realize that the G11 for all intents and purposes was a shit weapon IRL. There's a reason it was discontinued... The Ballistics on it were near impossible to get right, they never could get the firepower they wanted, and it was crazy expensive. In reality caseless rounds have almost ZERO benefits over regular rounds. In short, To Hell with the G11, I'd rather have a Tommy Gun.
Breaking News: There's weapons in Battlefield 3- Behold!
I hope they DO NOT use the veteran weapons format that i've seen in battlefield play4free where they just take a weapon and give it a slightly larger mag and hit power points! Then they will do this again with Elite but in reality they are just gimping the standard weapon! Also they routinely come out with new guns and gimp the old ones! Hopefully BF3 Veteran weapons will be some special weapon you receive when you reach a certain level! I would like to see the vss vintorez, L85A1 rifle, Striker
i never really understod why you would bring an M1 Grand to a modern fight, find it kinda foolish
I shot an M1 Grand when I was 17, let me just say...brutal. Thats old warfare before treaties and such things came into play. I felt bad for the paper target my friend. M1 has power only our grandfathers felt in battle rifles
ok cool story bro. lol find it kind of pointless. take a M1 Grand or a fully auto M16?
I see what youre saying hazmat =) You really dont want to see such primitive weapons in a modern setting. I get it. BTW I personally would rather a marksmans rifle anyday... while the M16 is a great military achievement, it lacks the killing power one bullet from an M1 can achieve
THe m1 is the predecessor of the mighty M14 which is a very good rifle. The thing is the M1 could still be powerfull but mechanically outdated
What do treaties have to do with the m1 or any other rifle?
Take one guy who knows what he's doing with an M1 Garand, then face him up against a careless sprayer with an M16, and see who wins. The M1 is still a great rifle, which the M14 and it's other derivatives was based off of.
That is not a fair weapon comparison. You are putting an expert of one weapon up against a careless user of another weapon. That is only comparing the skill of the people, not the weapons. See who wins if you put an M1 expert up against an M16 expert.
Even then, it'll boil down to weapon skill. It only takes one shot to kill a guy, and even though the guy with the M16 will have more firepower due to a higher-capacity mag and burst-fire/full-auto, the M1 guy can still annihilate him.
@ Hazmut Well in fairness mate, for a good player of the game it is something different to do that gives you a challenge.... like... Hey I'm so badass that I can take on your modern weapons with an old single shot rifle from back in the war!
Fingers crossed for the M14. Always feels great to wipe out an entire squad with a semi automatic rifle. (I'm aware that BF3 weapons have select fire)
I hope its the ak47. Yeah they have the "updated" ak74m but that uses a smaller round. The AK47 is the most common AR you see in conflicts these days
AK47 = worse gun ever!!! j/k yeh i know the majority of the world uses them but the ones that do rarely win their conflicts!! :) I'm just sayen :)
Yeah, the reason why they're so prevalent is because they're reliable and cheaply made.
I'll take this any day of the week over a Ak47
Does the girl come with the gun? May I have one too? (Love my ak47 tho)
If they do a similar veteran weapon system like MOH, wouldn't it defeat the purpose of having dirty, war-torn guns like they said they made?
I wish it was the Desert Eagle making it's battlefield debut, we've been waiting forever for that one. That'd be wishful thinking though...
Meh, I'd like to see the XM8 It'd be a cool Easter egg, and a gun people would actually use. Hell the XM8 was the signature weapon of Bad Company.
BFG from doom please... Or the front gun from an A12
mp5 but ill go with anything from bf2
Flamethrower all the way baby!
i bet that is future DLC
Cow launcher from the South Park game please!
it is not future DLC my friend
actually a well written article
id like a big stick. now thats retro!
Ninja throwing stars or the flying guillotine would be cool as a weapon in BF3
I'd like an English Longsword. Just kidding... Maybe an SA80 would be nice.
Paintball gun please...However it would just get nerfed in the long run though, people would complain its too powerful. /s
I hope its the ACR.
My guess is that the M16A3 is going to be a veteran weapon. It is a confirmed gun seen in the last multiplayer trailer and yet wasn't included on the fact sheet given out at gamescom.
