Re-download Back to Karkand on PS3 tomorrow to fix weapon animation bug

Starting tomorrow (March 13th), you can re-download a new, patched version of Battlefield 3™: Back to Karkand on PS3. This will fix the weapon animation bug that some of you have experienced. This download is free of charge if you have already bought Back to Karkand. Note that changes made on our back end will make this re-download mandatory in the near future. If you buy Back to Karkand for the first time after tomorrow, no additional action is necessary.

    its the 10th of April 2012 and im having problems with this re download Back to Karkand and iv re downloaded it twice now, but all it says is “unable to re download try another time” im so close to losing it and im just going to go back to COD because i had no problems with them please fix this so or help me so i can go back to driving jeeps and flying jets

      Its the same thing for me, the only thing keeping me playing is the fact that i can still fly and use tanks, the ea chat while the employee was nice could not provide me with anything new, and linked me to the troubleshooting page, you dont think i would have tried that along with any other fix on the net? I have played this franchise since bf1942 and it has been my favorite, but the lack of attention and service to this glitch is making me seriously consider buying my first ever cod game.

    Why are we waiting??? Where the hell is the decison makers? EA / DICE should have a POLL of what we think about the recent patches : Do gamers want back the pre-patch?? YES or No

    Yes for me!!!!!

    Does anyone know if you have PlayStation Plus is this on the list of patches automatically downloaded?

    It looks like EA/DICE gave a nice present to those that had to endure re-downloading this DLC.

    Both the MG36 & the QBB-95 have had mid range scopes(6x & 7x) added to their attachments in the customise menu in the ‘My Soldier’ section in-game.

    For some reason the attachments don’t show up on the Battlelog.

    It looks like the progression bar has been reactivated on my QBB-95, it only has 237 kills on it, the 7x is currently available but the 6x is locked.

    I’m guessing that if I get 270 kills it will then unlock the second of the mid-range scopes.

    With the MG36 the unlocked scopes are the opposite, obviously because of each gun’s faction origin.

    STILL FREEZING AND CRASHING MY SYSTEM. Can’t you guys ever get ANYTHING right?

  • SINY10304 03.15.12 at 15:38

    It did fix the unwanted over the head pot shot deal, but what i do notice is that when you look through the HOLO sight on the MG36 and strafe while looking through the sight it laggs while you walk, the sight inches over , its not a smooth movment like all the other weapons. Sucks cause i like that machine gun. Wonder if they will fix it in the next patch. Anyone know any reason why that would be ?

  • OneMadSquid 03.15.12 at 14:38

    I’ve tried to re-download this twice now, and my system has frozen at 18% and at 52%. Twice I’ve had to restart and go through the file system check and restore process. WTF?!?

      Maybe your PS3 is going bad? I am personally on my 2nd ps3.

    • blazeviper 03.25.12 at 12:48

      that never happens to me bro maybe your internet is glitching when it downloads so it stops in the middle wait a couple of minutes and it should go back to normal if not then i don’t know

    • Raydee 03.27.12 at 04:32

      Disconnect from your Wifi and then reconnect, should be smoother.
