  • Battleblog #5: Years worth of unlocks and rewards in Battlefield 3

    Valerian Noghin and Fredrik Thylander are Persistence Designers on Battlefield 3. Theyíre the guys making sure you will have as much fun with the game in 2013 as on launch day.

    Back in 2005, Battlefield 2 was one of the first shooters to introduce a deep persistence system to add that extra layer of tasty rewards and unlocks to keep players returning to the battlefield for hundreds of hours. With Battlefield 3, we are pulling all the stops. Compared to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 will have more than 10 times the hardware unlocks spread over weapons, weapons attachments, gadgets, and a huge unlock tree for vehicles alone.

      Thatís the way all of the unlocks and upgrades work. They are specifically designed to be tactical in nature, forcing you to choose loadout based on the map and situation. Do you go for the heavy barrel for your assault rifle? It gives added accuracy for single shots, but at the cost of stronger recoil in burst fire/full auto mode. A standard assault rifle can be modified into a long range accurate weapon or for close quarter, almost SMG-like, combat. For jets, do you go with Maverick ATG missiles to take out tanks or AA missiles to dogfight airborne threats? With your Engineer, do you bring your anti-tank or your anti-air RPG launcher?
      Infantry AA launchers confirmed! Good stuff there.

        The ultimate bragging right would be for a player to be awarded the rank of Colonel with 100 Service Stars attached, and to have 100 stars in all weapons, kits, and vehicles. Getting there will be a massive task – consider that a challenge! :)
        We should have special TG forum signature ribbon for first 10 players achieving this. :)

          very good indeed. I wonder what the very last unlock is? Tactical Nuke maybe :) I hope they bring back some of the SF stuff, like the grapple hooks, zip lines, teargas/masks, and flash-bangs etc.

              [whine on]Oh good!!! Now I am going to spend half my time in aircraft dodging anti-air RPGs especially on TG servers. I guess I should be used to it after all this time playing bf21242 and my gunship being chased around the TG server by multiple SAAWs [whine off].

                  Dont worry, it will probably be a high level unlock that i wont be able to achieve.

                    I think the only unlock that Origin preorders don't get is the extra dog tags.

                      That would be great news, at least we will get some game time in waiting for you to unlock it! :)

                          This wouldn't be an EA game if the preorders weren't worse than the gear they replaced.

                          Also, highly interested with the idea that you might have to pick between AtA and AtG munitions as an either or option in jets. Should separate the CAS from the T0PGUN3RS.

                            That's neat in theory but means you need to plan what you want your jet to be before you spawn. As we all know even getting that asset is tough and you need to be able to be response to whatever the threat may be. You don't want to be like oh well I got my AA perk so I might as well not fly to take out that tank. I HATED that in bad Co 2 where basic vehicle functions were given as a perk instead of standard. They needed the alt fire and smoke as STANDARD equipment on the vehicles!!! Watching the SP tank video for BF3 gave me some hope that we may see all those options on the vehicle at once but this makes it sound like it will be picking and choosing again.

                            I will hold out hope that it works out ok. Perhaps it is not an all or nothing but rather more of what they pick. So if you go AA on your plane you get a few extra of those missiles. Bah, who am I kidding... the sky is falling!!! :p

                              Aha Greasy, on any old public server, this might be a problem. But we are TG! Were I to be flying with AtG loaded, I'm sure I could call it out in chat and lure my pursuer down into the weeds where the team is more than welcome to pick him apart, after which I'm free to continue hitting designated targets, called out by those same team mates. It's a pretty cycle, much better than AT <-> Tank and Plane <-> Plane I think.
