Well only the games that you actually buy are counted as battlefield rank
I'm rank 0 and have only bf heroes "not grayed" and I have access to the ultimateprestige So, just create a character in bfheroes (no need to play I guess) and you'll have access to the site and get the thompson ^^
Knifing is great in this game. Not as fast as CSS or MW2. Definitely makes you have to time the knife correctly instead of 'Commando-sliding' to your enemy to kill them.
I have got pissed off though when some knifes clearly should of been a kill or missed when they looked like they made contact. Happens in MW2 too.. It could be worked on a little.. or maybe my knifing skill needs some work on it
Either way, I love collecting dogtags!
What *does* need work is the damn killcam and it's jittery jitterness!
The 'barracks' (stat page) in this game is really good. Love inspecting the weaponry, vehicles, insignias and pins etc. Pretty cool..
Oh yeah I don't really get all of that veteran crap, I know I want the thompson and that long-range rifle from WW-II, but it says "Only available for Battlefield Veterans"
What does that mean? :P
just get a bf 1942 old key and register on bf veterans, it will make you reach lvl 1 veteran, im level 4 because i got all the battlefeild games(not played) with fake usernames, or cd keys, then you will unlock the guns
