  • Battlelog Quirks - Weapon Unlocks and Accuracy/Stat Tracking

    I've been poking around in battlelog at the office to see when I'll unlock certain items, and I've spotted a few odd things.

    -Under Assault, the 6th unlock is the M16A4 and the 10th is the M16A3. Isn't the starting rifle for the US the M16A3? Did they just mislabel these items?

    -Under Engineer, the 6th unlock is the M4 and the 10th is the M4A1. Same issue as above.

    -Under Support, the 8th unlock is the M27 and the 9th unlock is the RPK-74m. Same issue as above.

    -Under Recon, the 8th unlock is the MK11 MOD 0 and the 9th unlock is the SVD. Same issue as above.

    For all of these "repeated," weapons, the icon shown in battlelog has a small flag of the respective nation for each gun.

    Has anyone unlocked these weapons or, hopefully, the other weapons that are supposed to be in these slots?


    Another issue I'm having is the accuracy stat, it seems totally and completely off. Is it tracking general accuracy for all shots fired, every time you click fire (vehicle, weapon, defib, etc)? If so, it seems like it may be correct, but incredibly useless.

    I looked at a past round's recap and I got, "best aim," at 33%, which felt about right and was my average assault rifle accuracy in 2142 (the 3rd did an in depth study and geeked out on stat tracking in 2142 to see where we could to improve). Yet, if you click on your individual stats for that round, it'll show 0% and 0m0s with your best weapon.

    If I were to sit and count the shots I fire and the hit indicators I get and then do the math out, I still feel like I'd get a higher number than what battlelog is telling me for my average accuracy with the M416. That sorta makes me want to believe that the hit registration is saying I am hitting my targets when I am not.

    Anyone else experience any suspect numbers or broken items in battlelog? It'd be good to send them some feedback, they went through the trouble of forcing battlelog on us, it'd be nice if it worked completely.

    I've noticed some of those quirks and while it's fun to study the stats I don't put too much stock in them. What credit do you get for suppressing with the SAW while your buddies flank and kill? None really and there are a dozen if not more similar type of teamwork examples that don't show on the ledger.

      Contrary to your opinion, I think they do serve a purpose. If your K/D is very low, it is a good indication that you're doing something wrong, costing your team too many tickets. If you want to become a better player and help your team more, it helps to check in on stats to see what's going on. Besides, putting stock in them isn't what I'm after. If that were my aim, I'd have put this post in the general forums.

      I'm curious to see other people's experience with battlelog, and to figure out what those mystery weapons are (I like surprising prizes)!

        Well it seems mine is sorta borked so to speak. It says i have no kills with the mortar and i think i may have taken out a few peeps with it.

          There's a valid reason for this. When you hit the last set of unlocks for a class, it gives you the starting weapon of each faction, no matter what faction you are playing as. So, if you are playing Assault as the United States, and you have achieved Service Star 1 (all unlocks, x points) as the Assault Kit, you can equip an AK74M from your customization menu.

          The weapons with different designations are also there for a reason. On the Engineer kit, you can have an M4A1 or an M4. They are identical in all aspects except mode of fire. The A1 variant has Full auto or Semi Auto, whereas the M4 that you unlock has either Burst or Semi-auto, no full. I assume that the M16A3 and A4 vary in the same way. It comes down to whether you like Full auto or Burst fire better.

            Sweet, thanks for the info! That's pretty cool that they put the other variants in and actually had them as separate weapons.

              Like it was said earlier, when you unlock the basic weapons, it makes those basic weapons available to you no matter what side you are playing on, RU or US

                I have this also. Have gotten about 20 kills with it but nothing yet in stats. I'm not too worried about it but that doesn't portend to well for the validity of all the stats

                  I don't have it unlocked, but have 4 kills with it after picking it up off a downed enemy.
