if we have next to no info on it why is there a article?

i think BFBC was originally Battlefield 3 not quiet sure though, i googled Battlefield 3 and i saw similar pictures that looked like BFBC DEathgod65 :D 12:18, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

As they Bondpedia said earlier, it was listed on Wikipedia. This article WILL eventually incorporate more information. It's like "Call of Duty 8", we barely know anything about it, yet there's an article about it on the CoD wiki. SSD 天皇陛下萬歳! 21:34, April 4, 2010 (UTC)

I saw a funny Battlefield 3 cover prediction. To me, I felt like LMFAO. I don't have a picture, but this is what it looks like.

New *Full* Trailer Edit

I'm not going to try to add the thing to the page cuz I suck at editing, but here's the newest full Trailer .

It confirms jets as a playable vehicle and from what I can tell includes the F-18 and the SU-33 Naval Flanker in-game. In depth analysis can go to you guys, but I got my SU. :D 17:52, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

I'll put it up ASAP

  1. Redirect P043HeatedPete - 08:27, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

I'm starting to believe that the featured plane in the trailer for the US is an F-16, better supported by the newest Tank combat trailer with those being the main aircraft flying around including the F-18, but the cockpit image matches the F-16 a bit more

(F-16) (In Game)


Notice the things like the little diagram of the plane on the right hand side and the way the main console has it's screen aranged in below the HUD. It doesn't hurt to leave it as F-22 or F-16, but that was definitely an F-16. 01:22, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

Very nice analysis there, anon. Although it might be a bit safer to keep it at "F-22 or F-16", considering DICE stated they really wanted to make everything as realistic as possible, I'll put in F-16. Thanks! SSDGFCTCT9(Talk) AdminRibbon UserMonthRibbon AwardRibbon 800px-Template Ribbon 01:27, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
I don't know if you remember, but I actually confirmed that. From this perspective, the joystick is slightly to the right. That kind of means that it is turning right from the center. That's F-22's joystick. The F-16 was initially designed as a close-range lightweight fighter for air-to-air combat only, so the moved the stick to the upper right side. Another feature is that not all controls of the F-16 are electronic, some are mechanic (I saw it myself), which isn't the case of the F-22, and as there is no "safety handle" to pull before ejection on the left, there's no way that's a F-16. The only similarity with the F-22 is the clear canopy, but the rest has complete 5th Generation cockpit. I believe I cleared it out and going to change it, if you wanna make an objection, go ahead. Pedro9basket 7:07, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I remember you doing that. But I mean, just look at the images the anon put up! Everything fits with the F-16 cockpit! I mean, I'm no expert, but if they're visually identical, then it must be an F-16. SSDGFCTCT9(Talk) AdminRibbon UserMonthRibbon AwardRibbon 800px-Template Ribbon 14:34, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
I'm a fighters expert and all, an I could've sworn to God I saw the joystick in a more higher position when I sat on it in 2009. Well, if the joystick is that close and all, I have no arguments. Approved Pedro9basket 15:42, June 10, 2011 (UTC)

Set in Sarajevo? Edit

Recently, rumours of BF3 being set in Sarajevo during the year 2013 have begun circulating the Infobahn (internet).

There are several articles about it, most can be accessed through Google, looking for "battlefield 3 sarajevo". However, I propose that Sarajevo is not added to the article yet, as no source appears reliable (including Wikipedia, which already states this). Also, all the articles are written in exactly the same broken English, which leads me to believe that it was translated, shoddily.

I'll start looking for any sources and edit this if anything comes up. Th3 razor 13:26, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

Here's the translation of the Croatian article; just in case: Warning, possible spoilers.

"A few pages dedicated to gaming, but also that portals from Bosnia and Herzegovina have passed the information that the story of upcoming Battlefield 3 will start in Sarajevo no less. Allegedly, in BiH in the year 2013 an excalation of an, as of yet, undefined conflict has arised, and the plot of the game itself begins in 2014. when a platoon of USMC, of which you are a part, arrive at the scene. Afterwards, the storyline will shift to the Iraqi-Irani border, and after that on numereous locations arroudn the world, including both New York and Paris.

Despite the ammount of players who will be more than happy to see Sarajevo fetured, question is how will the citizens od Sarajevo and BiH in general feel, cosidering that the political situation is still far from simple. Also, the wounds of the war have still not healed, so for some, this scenario is not an alternative future, rather real and material past.

'Plot of the game is based on the 'what if' scenarios. We see the world as a very unstable place. We see it for example through the shot which echoed Sarajevo and, with the butterfly effect, causing WWI', stated, few months ago Peter Bach, executive producer of Battlefield 3, with which he has, maybe intentionally, pointed the finger towards the place where the plot of Battlefield 3 shall begin. However, official confirmation, wether the plot will at any point be set in Sarajevo, has not yet surfaced." 19:55, May 29, 2011 (UTC)


I've come across the site Gamereport, which has an interesting article inside. It's in Croatian, but from what I could translate, apparently, Battlefield 3 will begin in Bosnia during 2013. The title is "Battlefield 3 smješten u Sarajevo?!" which quite literally translates to "Battlefield 3 is located in Sarajevo?!", the name of every article I came across during my search. That's about it for now. Th3 razor 13:35, May 18, 2011 (UTC)

Of course. If it's just rumours, and not confirmed, it means that it could be misleading. Until we get it from a reliable source, it won't go on the article. Interesting, though. SSDGFCTCT9(Talk) AdminRibbon UserMonthRibbon AwardRibbon 800px-Template Ribbon 20:32, May 18, 2011 (UTC)


Anyone think this will continue BF2's story. ie the Chinese and MEC. - Unsigned comment was added by ATP2555 II (Contributions)

I hope both factions are included, at least in multiplayer if not the campaign. I'm wondering if the PLR from the campaign is separate from the MEC or not, though. It seems like they are, as they are another named faction, but maybe they are they just the Iranian part.
And I hope they bring back China. I've seen enough of Russian Global Domination lately in BC2 and now apparently MW3. - Unsigned comment was added by PresidentEden78 (Contributions)

Lack of Dinassours.......wait wut! Edit

*According to a GamersSpot article, the dinosaur at the beginning of the E3 demo and Thunder Run trailer was placed in response to a 4chan thread in which a supposed Activision sales manager wondered why their Call of Duty game didn't sell as well on PC as it did on consoles, with several responses saying it was due to a lack of dinosaurs.

Console versions halved Edit

I'm sorry to post this but I heard that the PS3 version will have 720p, 30fps or below, and 24 players. The PC version will have much better specs than this. This worries me because it might not attract too many people playing console because of this. The consoles are outdated and they really need to make new consoles. Do you think this will become a major problem or will players just brush it off?

I heard that the PS4 and a new Xbox will be unveiled in E3 2012, just rumors unfortunately.

The PS3 version being halved is most likely utter bullshit. Bad Company 2 had a resolution of 1080p, so, on a game that is being developed seperately for the console variants, it is very, very unlikely that it wil not be in 1080p, unless DICE really rip off two thirds of their customer base. Also, there is the fact that the PS3's resolution choices are limited to 540i, 540p, 1080i and 1080p, so an odd resolution of 720p wouldn't work for the PS3. We already know about the 24 players only for consoles, as that's the fault of Sony's/Microsoft's console servers, and the 30fps thing may be due to hardware limitations on the consoles, but I don't really care about frames per second, not when any frozen screen will still look utterly amazing.

  1. Redirect P043HeatedPete - 11:28, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Aren't most games 30fps? I know inFAMOUS 2 is, and the only time I've ever had the game freeze is when someone made a level that had one giant tower made of explosives that you had to shoot. And you can get a helluva lot of activity on the screen in that game. I highly doubt that the frame rate will suffer very much. CoaZ 01:46, July 19, 2011 (UTC)

The human eye itself only catches a maximum of 24 FPS. Having bigger framerate than that only increases the chances to the eye to catch the right frame and do the right reaction. So for us, there almost no difference between 30 and 60 FPS. 30 FPS is bigger than what we are able to see. 60 FPS is only designed for reaction based games, such as Call of Duty. 30 FPS fits right in 90% of video-games and it's good enough for Battlefield. Pedro9basket 12:31, July 19, 2011 (UTC)

Finally an accurately portrayed Russian Army Edit

Thank you battlefield for portraying the Russian armed forces correctly. Call of Duty really has butchered them. Yet another reason why I will be choosing BF3 over MW3. Lvoss

  • Spetsnaz firing on Marines
  • Kneeling Spetsnaz

Yeah, not to mention COD portrays the Spetsnaz as a Terrorist force instead of a Counter Terrorist force like they're really supposed to be(Counter Strike did this correctly in CZ: DS).ATP2555 II 02:51, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Only in Black ops these dudes are "terrorist". In MW2, they are fighting Americans because they think an American committed a massacre, which is viewed as an act of terrorism. On another note, MW3 will make more sales even if its not as good as BSF3 Due to its popularity and not clustering 24-60 people on one map (and the fact more has been revealed about multiplayer and less about campaign....only tim will tell I guess. I will get both games, though as i like them both...UMAD /\/\r.6r33|\| |-|@T 23:14, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

Even if they are licensed, they're still property of EA, and since the person who uploaded them likely broke a non-disclosure agreement, then no, we shouldn't be posting them up.
Think about it this way, it's like donating an ancient artifact to a museum even though the artifact was stolen. The museum would be just as much at fault as the thief, since they probably knew the item was stolen. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 22:41, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

If we can't post the leaked Alpha Info, why hasn't EA deleted this thread yet which compiles all of it (albeit in a somewhat disorganized fashion)? Seems like it's fair game to me...

Because it's basically stolen property. Frankly, EA probably will delete the info. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 06:34, July 22, 2011 (UTC)
Personally, I see no reason why not to post info. There are many, many (there is one channel with over 90 vids) videos out on youtube that have not been taken down, and even if we don't post pics, we should still be able to say, "x weapon is in the game". 00:24, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

*sniff-sniff* Smells like Bad Company 3Edit

In the Alpha gameplay videos, I saw someone in a customization screen. The SV98 was his primary and M1911 was his secondary. His character was a Marine too. I hope the "free weapons" aspect remains in the Alpha version only.

It's faction-only weapons in the final version FYI. And I don't believe that a Battlefield with JETS would smell like BC3. Pedro9basket 08:57, July 30, 2011 (UTC)

I wouldn't mind if they featured the EU as DLC, having them and the US vs RU and the PLR. Having some lesser-known weapons and vehicles used by European countries could be quite fun. I wonder why they didn't simply reuse the MEC from Battlefield 2 though. JPanzerj 12:08, August 2, 2011 (UTC)

There are some very distinct differences from the PLR and the MEC. The MEC just really wouldn't fit with the PLR's role. SSDGFCTCT9(Talk) AdminRibbon UserMonthRibbon AwardRibbon 800px-Template Ribbon 16:28, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
Heh. The PLR has similarities to Al-Qaeda: they both bomb places, they both are in the Middle East, and they're both, for a lack of better term, a threat to countries. The MEC was basically completely limited to the Middle East, as their name suggests. All in all, I think after BF2AF, the MEC, along with the PLA, were defeated, and the war between them and the US and EU ended. Therefore, the PLR were formed, as abit of a successor.ATP2555 II 17:44, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
The PLR might be the remnants of the Russian rebels and the insurgent faction in BF2. BF2 takes place around 2007 (according to the Wake Island 2007 map), after all. If the MEC was disbanded or otherwise damaged, it's possible that they became the primary harbor for the PLR. (which would explain why the U.S. would go in to occupy the MEC in 2014, as the PLR would basically be an organization formed by a bunch of organizations which hate the Western world and Russia.) As for why Russia is still fighting the U.S. -- well it's quite possible that hostilities between them and the EU and US never ceased following the defeat of the MEC and PLA, and that one Spetsnaz or Marine with a chip on their shoulder took some pot-shots at their enemy even while they were dealing with the PLR (why both sides might be in paris), which could have ignited the entire Operation Metro fiasco. (think of a Gettysburg type of scenario. That battle began with some Confederate scouts just looking for shoes, and it blew up into one of the most important battles of the American Civil War). Of course, this is all just speculation, or an educated guess based upon the events and background of BF2. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 21:32, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
Given these facts, there's no apparent way this is BC3. But this really looks like it's taking background from BF2, turning a MP-only game scenario onto Singleplayer sounds exciting...if we could only throw out this speculation over the network to force DICE for an answer....we couldn't be the ones to do that either way. But here's an interesting fact I saw for the record: from what I saw from the modification shown at IGN of the starting trailer of BF3's demo at EA's Press Conference at E3 (I saw it live), there was a 1.5 second pic where a soldier was holding an insurgent, both were wearing gas masks. The soldier you're in 1st person (watching his POV) takes out the mask and the guy gets a screams out of a painful deep breath and you can see vapor out of his breath. Breath vapor is not normal in Paris's average weather....that referred dirty bomb months ago?? If so, that confirms the complete hostility on not only the invading US (to Iraqi soil and etc.) but the Western World, I'm guessing... Was there EU - MEC maps in Euro Force, Yuri? Pedro9basket 00:34, August 3, 2011 (UTC)
Taraba Quarry and Operation Smoke Screen both pitted the EU against the MEC. The only map that I remember that wasn't EU/MEC was Great Wall, which is EU vs. PLA. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 02:33, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Bad Company 3!? Because of BF3, I can expect it to come out at 2013 or 2014, it's finally time to see the end of Russia vs America war, and also if PS4 and 720 come out after 2012, it can be possible they can come out on those platforms along with the ordinary ones. - Unsigned comment was added by (Contributions)

So this is pretty much it guys. It's three days until release and there still hasn't been another confirmed faction. Give up your hopes for another true Battlefield. I mean, don't get me wrong here: they can't be THAT dumb to have Russians in Iran and Tehran fighting the USMC when the PLR are already there and can fight on their own. Same goes for the Americans, in France when the GIGN is already there and can defend their own country themselves. If that's how they repay us, they should stop calling it Battlefield 3 right now cause they fucked up anything that is "true" Battlefield and renamed the box art name to 'Battlefield: Bad Company 3 - The New Bad Company'. The ONLY thing left over from Battlefield 2 would be Jets, Prone, and 64 players. What a fuckin' joke. I can't stand developers these days. They may have PC as the lead platform for games but they always make it the way motherfucking console players want it to be. I'm starting to hate here. 18:23, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

Bro, get over it. What was left over between BF2 and BF1942? hmmm, just about nothing. Ergo, BF2 isn't BF42's sequel? What kind of idiocy is that? BF2 had more changes from BF1942 than BF3 had with BF2. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 03:20, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

Fact sheet Edit

Are you sure that's the whole weapon unlocks for BF3?, i really wanna see the AUG and FAMAS Zephalian 09:39, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure that there will be other weapons not yet revealed. We know that both the M16A3 and A4 will be included and the same for the M4/M4A1. Also we have now 10 ARs but only 6 or 7 weapons in other classes so I think that this number will be incresed in the final game. And at the end it is confirmed that Back to Karkand will include new weapons and vehicles-X048J 11:10, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

BF3 M for Mature Edit

Someone add the "Ratings" section to the info below BF3's box art? The trailer from Battleblog #10 showed the "M for Mature" logo in the beginning. 01:04, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

That's the rating for thr trailer, not the game. The content in the trailer is rated M, not the content of the game, which hasn't even been finished yet. Even the released pictures of the box have RP on them (Rating Pending). VineFynn 00:10, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Same Amount of Weapons as BF2?Edit

I just noticed that on our "Weapons of BF3" page, theres the same amount of articles as on the "Weapons of BF2" page. That includes attachments, weapons and unlockables. Is this a coincidence, or do you think it's deliberate? VineFynn 00:22, September 17, 2011 (UTC)

Cleaning out the video section. Edit

I am planning on removing some unneeded clutter from the video section just to let you guys know.Lvoss 20:04, October 3, 2011 (UTC)

Be very careful what you determine as "unneeded clutter". The only things I see as being unneeded are the three faultline episodes, considering we have the full length trailer with all three episodes in them. Others may think that there isn't anything "unneeded" in the video section.

Advancing from "Standard Article" rating after release Edit

Even though the game's just coming out, this article is quite well written. Since the future is subject to change, I suggest we wait for a bit, before examining if the article is eligible for a higher rating, such as BF:BRONZE.

single player section needs a serious rework Edit

The title sayes it all, the single player section on the main page needs a serious rework. The game is out people! Lvoss 15:56, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

I know. But the only attempt at doing it HAD to be reverted as it deleted a whole chunk of good information, added a tonne of useless coding and very little to the page itself, apart from a few wikipedia links. I was definately thinking that when we do the rewrite, we go along the lines of the classic plot/storyline section, but have a development section beneath as well, seeing as we have a whole host of stuff to go with...

Glitch? Edit

I've noticed that when I play a different game mode, my unlocks and rank reset, and are unusable. Including bonuses from the Physical Warfare pack and EA Gun Club. I'd have those items in Conquest, but not Rush. Is this supposed to happen or is it an extremely stupid feature? 05:44, December 27, 2011 (UTC)

I am pretty sure you are in a hardcore server. Did you pick any game in quick match option? If so i am sure its a hardcore server. Thta is why you have no unlocks. Deniedoperative 06:05, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

Auto kick Edit

I have been on multiple servers that auto kick for using certain weapons, such as rpg's. I was wondering how to go about this. Is a program being used? which one? how do you use it? KTCrawly 03:20, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think that's possible. Your profile is saved off-site, not locally. What caused that in BC2 was leaving before the end of a match. ЙураYuriKaslov - Sig image 02:08, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Another Glitch Edit

There's an achievement that I should've gotten but didn't for some reason... It's the one that involves getting 10 kills with every BtK weapon. I have over 100 kills with all the BtK weapons (except for the G53, which I have 72 kills with) and I still haven't gotten the achievement. Has anyone else had this problem?

Typo, but article locked 2012 Edit

The first paragraph under "Plot" should end in "demanding to know if he is alone." The period is also missing.

Also, "hia" should be "his", Misfit should always be capitalized, and "dieing" is spelled "dying"

Thing's that should be added. Edit

I myself came up with an idea that if you were able to trade out an item in your class for something cald a "Kit Pack". The pack would let you switch your class for a differen't one. It could open up the "Choose a Class" menu and you could change your camo, gun, attachments, or overall loadout, etc. This would allow the players to be able to help out other squad members with something. Example: What if your sitting out in the big field in Caspian Border (sniping) and you need some trees knocked down so you have betters shots at people. You would want to be able to do this if your not able to ask one of your squad members. If your being an a** and camping your gonna need ammo at some point. Another good example would be if you were in a vehicle but you weren't an Engineer and your vehicle was damaged your not gonna be able to reapair that as a sniper. That is my reasoning for why they should add this. 06:24, June 17, 2012 (UTC)

First of all, this isn't Call of Duty. Second of all, that would be heavily exploited. Third of all, if you want to discuss things you want in the game, head over to Battlelog. The wikia isn't for such things. THE Ʀооⱪιε 30px-P045.png 01:33, June 18, 2012 (UTC)

The "Bugs" Section. Edit

The "Bugs and Glitches" section is the wierdest, least organized thing i have ever seen on a wiki. It contains mostly pointless trivia and loopholes, not actual glitches (There really is no way to fix the "Oh, i rammed my teammate but i jumped out at the last second so it doesn't count!" glitch). Should it be removed?

I only see two that should be removed, that one and the "Guns may not reload when pressing the reload button the first time or they reload but without the reloading animation" because it is caused by lag. The others seem legitimate, I think. ΛϹΣ 30px-P045.png 19:32, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

"Fall damage bug" removal Edit

"Fall damage in the game is usually never consistent. Players can jump from a one story building and lose over half of their health while others who do the same can lose barely any."

  1. 1: What kind of writing is "usually never consistent"?
  1. 2: I'm sure this "bug" is just people landing on window ledges after they fall from a 2nd-story building, thus reducing or eliminating fall damage while giving the appearance of a glitch.

Thus, I intend to remove this specious "bug".

PotatoSamurai (talk) 21:01, April 21, 2013 (UTC)

I think it was more about the fact that you could fall off a curb and lose like 25% of your health back when the game was first released. ЮраYuriKaslov - Sig image 22:27, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

^ The Fall Damage Bug was when you would die from practically anything above the height of 5 feet. For example you could parachute 700ft in the air and wait the whole time for it to go down and you would die from "Suicide

Cut Characters? Edit

I've been checking out the credits for Battlefield 3, and I'm seeing names of characters that are not even in the game for all I know.

Here's an example: "Ralph Pogosian". In the credits, it says he was portrayed by Travis Willingham. I don't know if he was originally supposed to be in the campaign or not. This just confuses me.

Another example I have is: "PFC Daniel Argent". In the credits, it says he was portrayed by Tristan Tait. Another character cut from the game? I don't know.

There are a few more names of characters not seen or known of in the game, but I'll let you check them out for yourself.

I'm not saying it's necessary to make articles about them, I'm just pointing out something confusing I saw in the credits.

Here's a link to the credits:

I'm more confused by the "DICE BABIES" section. Danubian.flag.KRЮраGott erhalte Franz den Kaiser!!Danubian.flag.KR

It's pretty much the list of children of DICE (the developer in question) employees that were born during the development of the game. Most other studios do that in their games' credits. 75 Ranger Regiment Coat Of Arms Rangers Lead The Way Ranger Tab 22:38, June 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I recently have been looking for a very old advertisement for BF3 put out by DICE looking for actors to portray characters, but it was, IIRC, on the EA US Forums which have been closed since June 2012. Those characters may have been replaced by ones we have now. Also, I remembered some things about Faruk Al-Bashir (named FARUK on the script) being a "charismatic leader who ruled with an iron fist", and something about a Lebanese character (don't remember name, but it is obviously now Solomon, albeit his nationality is omitted from the game), as well as background on some of the US Marines in-game (one joined after the September 11th attacks). It truly was an interesting list, but I scoured the depths of the internet to no avail. Looking at scrapped ideas is truly fascinating.

People may criticize it, but Battlefield 3 is a truly solid BF game. Looking back at the hundreds of hours of SP, MP, and co-op, it truly epitomized how thorough the game is in its amount of replayability. The campaign, in my opinion, was a great ride, and helped give background to MP, which we all love; I have no doubts about that. Co-op was a blast as well, a shame it's not returning. Happy 2nd anniversary. :) Flag of IranPLR SoldierTalkBF3 KH2002 ICON 19:08, October 25, 2013 (UTC)
