  • Customizable Weapon accessory Slots

    http://blogs.battlefield.ea.com/batt...of-choice.aspx

    Basically, each main weapon in the game has three accessory slots, where you can attach weapon accessories you have unlocked. Weapon accessory unlocks are received on a per weapon basis, meaning that the more time you spend with a particular weapon, the more options you will have to customize that weapon to fit different your combat role and play style.
    Interesting.

    Sounds pretty cool to me! Hopefully nothing too gimmicky comes out, but I do love to accessorize! And I love a good reflex scope now and then.

      Hopefully they limit it to sensible combos. The BC2 sniper without a scope and with a red dot being one of the most effective short range engagements was ridiculous.

        I also love to accessorize.

        The unlockable weapon accessories include an assortment of optics, suppressors, bipods, barrels, underslung grenade launchers, underslung shotguns, foregrips, flashlights, laser sights, and more.

          In essence it means that the number of unlock-able items is artificially inflated by a HUGE factor.

          You can unlock an ACOG scope for one gun and you won't be able to use it for another until you unlock it for that particular gun.

          Not saying this is a bad thing (or a good thing) but it is what produces the "1 year of unlocks" for this game.

            Not if you play on an unranked server!

              If nothing else, this is good incentive (for me at least) to pick a gun and stick to it till its finished. I currently have 1 gold star minimum on every primary weapon in BC2, and consequently I weapon hop like crazy when in game because I can put the same unlocks on all of them.

              As for red dot snipers, I don't so much mind them and certainly won't mind if they return. The recon class in BF3 seems like it will actually be able to fill more of the Designated Marksman role than just as a Sniper. I quite liked running iron sights or a 4x ACOG on the Dragunov and the SV98 in the alpha, giving me a weapon that behaved more like a battle rifle or my old friend the Kar98 than like a sniper. Besides, in BC2 it is just as easy to no-scope an M24 with a 12x scope (if you know where the center of your screen is) as it is to run a red dot on that same weapon.
