All weapons in Battlefield 3 are split up into different Kits. Each Kit has special Gadgets to make that particular kit unique. The weapons available aren't only split up into different kits, but a small amount of weapons can only be used if you are playing as the US Faction or the Russian Faction. Many of those weapons will be unlocked for the opposite faction at the end of a kit's unlocks. You will start out with one weapon for each kit. Use that kit to level it up and unlock more weapons and gadgets. At every 100 kills with a weapon, you will be awarded a service star. After the first one, you will receive a weapon proficency dogtag, at the fifth one, you will have a right side dogtag. This dogtag has the number of kills you did with that gun on it.
All weapons in the Navigation are separated into the appropriate kits for easy access. Each weapon's page will have detailed stats and information.
The Weapon information on each weapon's page is set up in a simple format. 
  • Unlock: When you unlock the weapon.
  • Kit: Which kit it's unlocked in - incase you navigated to the weapon through a link.
  • Magazine Size: How much ammo can fit into one magazine.
  • Starting Ammo: The ammo you have when you deploy
  • Max Ammo: The ammo you have with the AMMO Specialization.
  • Reload Time: How long it takes to reload your weapon. Some weapons will have two times, the quickest and the slowest times. It will take longer to reload if you completely empty your weapon on most weapons.
  • Rate of Fire: How fast the weapon fires in Rounds Per Minute (RPM).
  • Fire Modes: The different modes the weapon can fire in.
  • Accessories: All weapons accessories and the amount of kills to unlock in brackets. If weapons have accessories unlocked when the weapon is unlocked, it will say [Default].

  1. That's a lot of weapons in this game, and I am sad to say that I have no clue what half of these weapons are. Could you explain or put pictures of them on here?

  2. While i'm not very familiar with this game, the weaponry and the other details about the game are interesting. i used to play syphon filter (dont know if you ever heard of it) and i would have learn how to work with the weapons within the game.

  3. Hey D.,
    I must confess I did play the game before and got the crap beat out of me. But I love the adventure and kind-of like watching my oldest son play it as well. I know the weapons count as points or something, right?
