Why the **** would you want to use a crossbow in a warzone when you can just use a gun? Crossbows are not used in the military for a reason.

Because it's a video game! (Sarcasm) Why would we want to have fun anyways? I just wish we had to refuel our jeeps, all use the same guns based on our team, feed our characters, and we can't re spawn . That's why I play games anyways, not for fun.

they would still never use it on a battlefield. if there does excist times with use of crossbow, it on some very special mission by special forces.

I could care less about Battlefield being realistic. It's all about fun imo. Players would go play ARMA games if they want their play style to be realistic as possible. I think adding a Crossbow in this game wouldn't hurt it a little bit. unless it's too OP and everybody will eventually whine about it for weeks. -- oh you know what? **** the crossbow. I want to play Battlefield in a post-earthquake map. That's this DLC's main point.

To be fair, China is outfitting some of its police force with crossbows. They're using the logic that an arrow won't set off any bombs in a terrorist-related thing or something...

AN-94 is two round burst, but if you have a fast enough trigger finger it may as well be full auto x2 cause you can ramp it up to 1200 rounds per minute if you're a severely twitchy hair-pin trigger ************.

The premium edition, which comes with the game AND premium is like $60, so that's a bargain. If you want a better game though, I would recommend Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Are people really complaining Battlefield is no longer realistic? Yes, because a game where you can revive people with a defibrillator that got SHOT, run over, and BLOWN UP and a game that does as much research for their gun as going on Wikipedia had me really convinced on the realism.

Also, those trying to defend it by saying that some soldiers still use crossbows, stop acting like it isn't in there because it's super ******* cool. Also, just mention that most police and military forces of all ranks and departments use crossbows in China (I had the pleasure of seeing a police officer armed with one there), it's always a winner.

My only complaint is that they're not implementing more bad ass things as well, I'd love to use a sawn-off coach gun, lupara, or a shovel to use instead of the stupid "Premium" knife they give me. If this game wanted to be realistic, it would have stopped halfway through making the game. It's for Hollywood effect, so let's give it more of that jazz.

It's the Cold Defender Mk. II I think. It never went into full production because it's an over/under shotgun with eight ******* barrels. It was super easy to use but it was complicated as hell to make. It was supposed to be given to South Vietnamese soldiers as a guerrilla warfare weapon.

They would've actually made some for the US (including law enforcement) if congress didn't see it as unholy hell that way too complicated and expensive to make. Please remember these are the same guys that looked at the space-age and expensive as **** M16 Rifle and loved it:
"This is a good investment."

Break-Action, you unlock a lever which lets you pull the barrels down and load a few shells into each respective barrel, it's actually like loading any other break-action shotgun, except eight times.

The Colt Defender Mk. II. An eight-barreled, shorty, 20-gauge break-action shotgun. It was meant to operate as a "insurgency weapon," something powerful, small, and simple to maintain and operate. It was made for use of special forces, but ended up being given to South Vietnamese soldiers and rebels to fight against the damned COMMIES. They discontinued the operation because of the price of manufacturing.

Don't forget a knife through the throat!

Far as your other stuff goes, I feel the same way, the ACB-90 looks like some weird ass box cutter, not a combat knife. Hell, give me a ******* hatchet, or better yet an E-Toll to bash some guys head in. Another thing I think would be awesome is if they implemented a 'gore effect' where if you shoot somebody in the head with a bloody .308 Lapua round, that ******* dome is gonna be in pieces.

Hell yeah, they tried to mix realism with action but all that happens is action separated by insurmountable ********. I also think before they go adding guns that make no logical sense or weapons that never passed prototypes, they should add the more classic guns.

AKM or an AKMS (or the AK-103),
FN FAL, literally any ******* variant will do.
HK21.
PKM. You're telling me they'll put the M16A3 and A4 in the same game but not the PKM and PKP Pecheneg?
And way more revolvers and carbines!

Well they do have the Pecheneg, and Carbines are limited to the Engineer class, but I get what you mean. I ******* hate the MP412 REX but I love the .44 Magnum, although I think it'd be funny if they implemented something like a .44 Contender breach loading sidearm. Another one I'd like to see is the Winchester 45-70 lever action. Because ****, what US and Russian force still uses the L96? They should scrap that P.O.S. and replace it with the Remington Model 700 like they had in CoD4, which is still in use by Marine Snipers today.

Precisely. The Remington 700 would be fun as hell to shoot in that game. They also have a few very local guns that aren't used outside of one or two particular nations. So they should start implementing weapons from other countries.

Brazil has the ParaFal, MD-97LC, MD-97L
Israel has the Galils
South Africa has the R4 and R5 and a few space-age type guns.

One more thing that'd make the game fun as hell is anti-materiel rifles and more powerful grenade launchers for the Sniper class and Medic class, respectively. The engineers and support get these powerful countermeasures against vehicles, basically leveling the playing between the two parties. But the Medic and the Scout for the most part have to cower away while heavy vehicles or aerial vehicles move around, they too should have some bite.

Indeed, I'd very much like to see a .50 on the field, but I think it should be a stationary weapon if you get what I mean. No running around Rambo style like they do in CoD, because honestly, there ain't no way in hell somebody is gonna jump in the air, spin around and shoot somebody from the hip with a god damn .50, hence why it should be stationary, or at least in the realm of 'gadgets' that the Recon Class has. You can lug the ****** up a mountain and set it up, no running around with it in your hands though. If they did allow you to carry it, well you're gonna be running pretty ******* slow brother.

Yeah, or they can just make it injure you if you try to fire it from the hip or standing up. But if that's the case, and it'll be used sparingly, they should include larger rounds.    
   
12.7mm and 14.5mm. I want something that makes an ass-sized orifice on the side of a tank.
