    Personally, I don't think I like this idea. Well, I like the idea of tasks to complete to unlock weapons, or the standard weapon unlocking like we have in the base game, but I don't like that our ten new Back to Karkand weapons are hidden like this.

    For example, I don't like the deathmatch modes. Does that mean I have to accept the fact that I can never get the L85A2? I also don't play Rush, does that mean I'm never going to get the PP-19? And since I won't get the PP-19, I can't get the Jackhammer? And what if I don't like playing Karkand and/or Sharqi - I again can't get the PP-19 or Jackhammer?

    It seems pretty unfortunate that people will pay $15 specifically for extra content, but not necessarily be guaranteed to get that content. Basically, there's some fine print involved here.

    Couldn't care less. Early Access for The Old Republic starts in 3 days. Bye bye Battlefield 3. It's nothing but campers and nade/rocket spammers spiced with cheaters anyway.

    I didnt realise we wouldn't get "any" new weapons. I assumed these were in addition to the new DLC weapons.

    my thought is, they should either be retro-active to include previous accomplishments, or have upgrades available for battle-scarred vets. i worked hard to get to lvl 51...that should be worth something

    Same here. With the way they're advertising it, I assumed that the maps, vehicles, and weapons would the content that we're buying, with a handful of extra awards and unlocks thrown in.

    Instead, it appears that this is really just a small map pack, with the weapons being extras that we can choose to unlock if we want to. It's certainly not the Battlefield 2 "mini-mod" that they seem to be advertising.

    I think what they should have done is give us the maps, vehicles, and ten weapons out-of-the-box. Then, thrown in a few extra weapons that can be unlocked via the new Assignments system.

    Nothing is as it's advertised. I thought people knew that.

    Isn't on the xbox.. yes you come across campers but they are in every game and it's not hard to take them out.
