Question How do you feel about exclusive pre-order weapons?

Sourced from: Battlefield Blog

But originally from some other article I can't find right now. Apparently you can get exclusive pre-order bonus weapons depending on where you order from. I read that this was a problem in MOH because some of the most powerful weapons were unattainable unless you pre-ordered from the right place beforehand. And of course, you couldn't do this post launch. Does anyone have a firsthand account of how that played out in MOH? Because it sounds like they're doing it again with BF3.

I didn't buy or play MOH, so I don't know how that went. But surely they wouldn't do that...would they? If they did, then expect a pretty large back lash...

The exclusive weapons (I think) are only for the Back to Karkand pack. So if thats the case, it wouldn't be as bad. I think people will play the old maps for a little while (except wake...*shudder*), just to see how Destruction changes them, and then go over to the "vanilla" version with the new maps.

And on a side note, that pack is for GAME in the UK only (at this stage). I have pre-ordered from the local GAME store here in town. I asked them about it, and they told me we should be getting something here locally aswell.

Provided weapons are unlockable by all, then I don't think it's that big of a deal. If they're only available to those that pre-order from particular places, it's ridiculous. If pre-orders offer exclusive content, it should be content that does not upset the balance of the game. Skins for weapons, different clothing, unique tags - have at it - should only be cosmetic bonuses.

Exclusive weapons are never weapons that are so good that you can't live without it.
They are mostly there for the looks but the stats are nothing special or identical to other guns already ingame.

no issues with preorder weapons as long as a similar weapon is available for unlock.

I read somewhere that the DAO12 would be a global unlock, but the Flechette ammo for that weapon would be exclusive only. However, you can unlock that ammo type for "other" shotguns. I would hazard a guess that the same would aply to the Type 88 LMG and the flash suppressor.

They did it with 2142 as well, the pre-order SCAR sounded and looked quite different to anything else in the game, but it had the same stats as one of the default weapons. You could pick it up from someone you killed, if they were using it.

That'd be a better idea. You have to find one of whatever weapon it is to unlock it. Like the viral spread of weapons...
