[SPOILER ALERT] BF4 campaign mechanics, unlockable mp-gear, 3 endings

Ok, so after just finishing the campaign...lets get the good shit going!

Keep in mind, spoilers WILL appear

The general weaponsystem is quite easy. Around the campaign there are weapon crates, here you can restock ammo for ur primary and secondary AND change weapons.
There are two ways to get weapons:
- get enough points in a certain level (certain weapons are sp-unlockables)
- pick up from enemy

Once a weapon is unlocked, you can get it back whenever you want to use it by going to a weapon pack
-yes, battlepickups from mp can be used as normal sp-primaries. Brb m82 spam

Gadgets can be picked up, and restocked, at gadget stations. Gadgets include things such as, but not limited to, xm25, smaw, mines, starstreak, stinger, c4...
These do not have to be unlocked, however you will often be limited in ur choice. (To challenge you to try out new things i guess?
"Oh, theres an lav and 30 guys ahead? Nah forget the rpgs and shit man, hf placing mines inbetween this mess!

Collectibles:
Hidden around the map, tiny as fuck, with no clear sign of them until you get within 50cm of them. Have fun, you can get dogtags for mp

Mp-gear unlocks:
- rex
- shank
- machete
- p90 (pdw)
- qbz-95-1 (AR)
- m249 (belt-fed lmg)

The first three are unlocked as you go, just play and be sure to get enough points each chapter. The last 3 weapons are unlocked through the endings.

3 endings: MAJOR spoiler alert

Spoiler Spoiler

When you go on a jihad-boat ride to blow up the giant chinese ship, you rapel (?) High above the boat, hanging in the sky with hannah and irish. The c4 has been planted on the boat, and hannah is ready to blow it up. EPIC musics starts playin, dadundundaduunduu-...fuck it wont blow up. So one of you has to go back to get closer for a signal, and thus losing his/her own life. Both hannah and irish are very eager to take this honorable role on them. You have to choose

Hannah goes BOOM: P90 unlocked + hannah dogtag
Irish goes KABLAM: m249 unlocked + irish dogtag unlocked

Or, you can sit still, and wait...who to choose...iunno, i...i...BAaAAAM too late your own ship blew up! BADABIIIM! Ur now the only three survivors...and u unlock the qbz-95-1 AR :>


Overall, the campaign was very enjoyable. Lots of great stuff lays ahead people. Granted, a fair amount of bugs but whatever.
I definetely would recommend everyone to give the SP a run-through! Whether you'll do it for assignments/attachments n shit, or for the sheer awesomeness...do it!:>

@Sheepnub

So if I replay the game at that one segment for diff endings I can get all weapons? Or will I have to do 3 playthroughs?
What I think about gun balance: If the gun goes bang, you have no cause to harangue.



Memorable Quotes

"Life is cheap, especially mine."-Heero Yuy, Gundam Wing

"Life is empty. When we take a life, we take nothing of value."-Durzo Blint, The Way of Shadows

so no, them being lazy isn't the only explanation. it is in fact the least likely explanation. from my experiences as an indie game dev, being lazy and being a game developer are two mutually exclusive states.

What happens when you manage to publicly show a Youtuber is wrong?

Quoted from "xFACTORlGaming"

No, you referenced something from your limited knowledge base on the subject ;)

Kind of hard to have this talk with someone whose top kills with weapons and vehicles is the v40 mini, mortar and EOD bot....

NoctyrneSAGA shouldn't be allowed to do weapon balance because he knows what effective engagement ranges are

Quoted from "Xuvial"


Quoted

NoctyrneSAGA said:
If high RoF weapons were easy to tap and burst, they'd win over low RoF guns at range. High FSM restricts High RoF to CQB as it should be.


Umm Noctyrne why are you even in a weapon balance thread? Quoting you:

Quoted

What I think about gun balance: If the gun goes pewpew, you have no reason to QQ.


What input could you possibly have on weapon balance with a mindset like that?
You have proven in the past you give zero shits about weapon balance.

If something is underpowered:

Quoted

people obviously aren't using it correctly



If something is overpowered:

Quoted

people are obviously using it to it's strengths



I mean responses like that could be considered borderline trolling, or coming from a politician. You have made it abundantly clear that you don't even believe in the CONCEPT of weapon balance, let alone trying to partake in a discussion about it.

I'm all for having input from varying perspectives (and meaning no insult to you), but your kind is the most meaningless. Your approach to balance can be concluded as "nothing is unbalanced in any game ever, people just need to USE IT PROPERLY".

By that logic it doesn't matter what devs change, because it will STILL be balanced no matter what. So again, why are you here? Everything is already balanced and will remain balanced for the foreseeable future no matter what changes, people just need to ADAPT - right?

As for the dude who sais to bring the right tool for the right map: "Fuck you, I want to use the gun I always use for everything (scarh)."

I have thousands of kills with the AEK, ACE23, FAMAS & CZ3A1 and other high ROF guns but I like the slower more measured playstyle of the Scarh better. Now that the competitiveness of that gun is gone I am understandably pissed.

@NoctyrneSAGA Your highest killing weapon is the V40 mini and your accuracy is terrible across the board (LMGs are pretty high on your list bro) - just get all your assignments and 5 service stars and for the rest please please piss off.

The million dollar question.

I really hope I don't have to replay this shit for each weapon.

Just triggering the specific ending cut scene should trigger the unlock.
The question is can you go back to before the ending, how does the save system work.

You only have to replay the mission thankfully.

the option to get a different ending is at the very very very end of the very last chapter. you just replay the last chapter, which is incredibly short in comparison to others, and ur set

with regular breaks, and some crashing-bugs: roughly 6-8 hours. Now, knowing what I have to do, skipping the cudscenes, I think I could manage in 5-6

btw: bf4 gives you a warning when you play for 4 hours straight. "watch out: gaming could affect your personal life. take regular breaks!" :'D
