    hey guys, im trying to get DICE to put either the M95 Sniper Rifle off of Battlefield Bad Company 2 or the barett Sniper Rifle into the new Battlefield 3 “Aftermath” or “End Game” DLC’s, i mean wouldnt you guys want to shoot a in the new Bandar Desert Map from the upcoming “Armored Kill” DLC? i know i definitely would. Also you guys still have a chance to make suggestions of any gun you guys want into the upcoming Battlefield 3 DLC’s since DICE and EA are still thinking of what they should put into the upcoming “Aftermath” and “End Game” DLC’s, and also if that little rumor that Dinosaurs are gonna be in the new “Aftermath” DLC, wouldnt you want to shoot a Dinosaur in the face with a Barett lol. Please help me make this possible by copying and pasting this message on every Battlefield 3 Blog. Also if you have any weapon suggestions that you think should be put into the upcoming DLC’s message me at or by Playstation 3 Network, my PS3 name is Barraza97. PLEASE GUYS THIS MESSAGE CAN HELP PUT ANY GUN YOU WANT INTO THE UPCOMING DLC’S :D!!!

    Wow double xp weekend? Thats sounds great only if the servers were working fine. Here’s an idea, how about quadrupal xp weekend when the servers get fixed. Thats the least you can do for us since we cannot play this weekend.

  • JMB_THE_DEFILED 06.17.12 at 16:44

    Dinomode dinomode dinomode dinomode! :)

  • m00niac 06.17.12 at 10:21

    what doubles exactly… i had say 10000 points on the score board but i didnt get 10000 extra at the end… it was less than that

  • smoothop77 06.17.12 at 03:08

    DOUBLE XP going to be level 30 after 17

  • CaptRondo 06.16.12 at 23:30

    Sum Total of every round will be doubled? My sum total was 4000 and the bonus 900… That doesn’t sound like double…?

    • BrainOfSweden 06.17.12 at 13:20

      That is because not everything shows up in the “Multiplier period”. Ribbons, unlocks and other stuff are doubled there, but Kit points for example, are doubled directly. So if it says 5000 support points, you actually got 2500×2

  • Matticus85 06.16.12 at 20:36

    Double XP is back and thankfully, on my weekend off. Looks like it will be a constructive few days.

  • Pasalacqua87 06.15.12 at 21:26

    Can’t wait for Close Quarters for non-premium for PS3 on Tuesday!!! And Double XP has already started for me for some reason. And guys, the Famas is a beast again!

  • Daster 06.15.12 at 17:28

    Been looking forward to this, just another excuse to play this epic game. Dice listens to all of us, so im sure if we voice our concerns enough, they’ll do something about it. Bring on double XP!

  • XxMOExFUGGAxX 06.15.12 at 16:36

    I definitely agree with the flag capture problem. Put that shit somewhere other than the middle of my screen. And fix the ACW-R’s magazine issue. There are only 27 bullets in at a time instead of 30. It sucks getting 2% damage on enemies and having them rape you as you reload. And keep up the great work.

  • JMB_THE_DEFILED 06.15.12 at 02:32

    Make humans vs dinomode! Would be epic!

    • ringsender 06.15.12 at 15:09

      Yes dinomode would be the greatest thing ever.

  • davtt1014 06.15.12 at 01:16

  • domodemon 06.14.12 at 23:40

    sick of cheats, boosters whatever ya call em, its frustrating when ya know ya can kill them but they have such an adavantage, i have seen the hack programs on utube, i just shout at it and turn it off. might get 13 quid from asda for it

    • domodemon 06.14.12 at 23:41

      oh and get killed by admin for no reason except spawning

      • Daster 06.15.12 at 17:25

        Thats the team balancing, its an automated response in custom servers.

  • Mr.NiCoS 06.14.12 at 19:59

    i need dice servers! or i get kicked for playing to good or the teams arnt fair & i need to play with a noob team that cant do shit against a better team or the otherway around or i join a server that is almost over or 112414325 tickets or i want to play rush & come on a cq server or some other shit im getting pissed off give me good server no crap like the servers now!

  • BIO-rapture53 06.14.12 at 00:14

    dose anyone know the web address where i can report admin abuse and players glitching threw walls and stuff itd be greatly appreciated

  • drumscarinbr 06.13.12 at 22:01

    DICE, Please respond to this suggestion.

    I have been posting this on a semi-regular basis sinch launch, in attempts to get you guys to at least acknowledge it.

    Please remove the minimap from HARDCORE MODE.

    One of (if not the most) crucial element that makes a game mode ‘hardcore’ is the ABSENCE of the minimap. Please remove it from that mode.

    Why not give the player the option to play both very different styles of game play?

    If you don’t remove it from hardcore, please allow it to be removed in custom servers while keeping ALL other HC settings…AND…..keeping the match ranked (that’s the important part). The custom servers need more flexibility overall, while keeping the matches RANKED. IMO, you should be able to edit ANY parameter with the only restriction being player health possibly. Maybe the lowest allowable level would be 30%, as I can understand your boosting concerns of people setting health at 1% and getting a bazillion kills/points. The bottom line is that players should be able to create and play a more harsh/realistic style of game play and get people to play those servers, but right now, most people won’t because the games are unranked.

    Perhaps a poll would be a good idea, right here in the Battlelog. You could ask whether or not HARDCORE MODE PLAYERS ONLY would want to play that mode without the minimap. Again, it’s important that this be intended for HC players only. If you cannot/will not remove it from HC, then at least allow it to be removed from custom servers…..while keeping the match ranked….in addition to all other standard HC settings.

    Other wishlist items:

    Please use the conquest flag capturing indicator that is in BFBC2. Do not bring up the large circular ‘C’ meter right in the middle of the screen just above the gun’s sights, as it just obscures the player’s view even more. Just stick with BFBC2′s audible ‘ticking’ meter at the bottom left hand side of the screen.

    Please remove the names of the conquest capture points/flags (warehouse, docks, etc.) and just stick with A,B,C,etc. these names just obscure the players view, specially in longer/narrower maps. The names do very little for the player, as I’ve never had an issue in communicating with my squad that “I’m capturing Alpha”, for example. If you want/need to include the names, just leave them on the full-size map while in the spawn/pause screen.


    • JDADDY88LXI 06.14.12 at 01:38

      I agree totally, hardcore is suppose to be just that, “HARDCORE”. No mini map was how we knew what mode were on. I think you just made a lot of very good and very reasonable suggestions and none of them are asking too much. For us dedicated Battlefield3(BFBC,BFBC2,VIETNAM,ect) players, we deserve better consideration to our gameplay needs and options in return for our loyalty.
      Again not asking to much, just want to have a better Battlefield experience.

    • XeroSum 06.20.12 at 09:32

      Stop referring to this as an ISSUE. Just because you don’t like it, doesn’t make it one. I think you just have issues. Lol

  • BRYAN9601 06.13.12 at 14:28

  • T-BONE82 06.12.12 at 19:54

    is there a way i can complain about this?

    How about, its not fair that people who haven’t put in 5000 hours of gameplay get to rank up faster because they get double xp this weekend. Wah wah wah.

    Should i start a forum thread?


    • Kuhhurba 06.12.12 at 20:58

    • evard 06.13.12 at 01:57
