If you forgo your secondary...

... for an extra perk or whatever, you can't simply switch to a knife and pick up a gun like you'd do if you had pistol. You can only pick up a gun and exchange it with your equipped primary.

Just thought 'd drop this since it seems a lot of people still don't know about this. I'm glad they did this, since the choice would be easy.... everyone would simply ditch secondary for an extra perk and pick up another gun from the enemy.

This makes me think.... if you use all your points on perks, then you will be stuck with a knife only and won't be able to get the easy specialist bonus like many of you are planning.

Getting 6 perks only takes up 9 points, so you can pick a bare primary, 6 perks, and no lethal or tactical grenades and fill the 10 points available. Since the second perks cost 2 points each, a lot of people are probably going to be picking a primary with two attachments and then 5 perks.

A second attachment cost 2 points as well.Therefore you can't have 5 perks and a gun with 2 attachments as that would be 11 points.

A second attachment for the secondary requires a wildcard i.e. costs 2 points. A second attachment for the primary doesn't require a wildcard.

And where is this information from? I think it is quite stupid to do something like that.

Ah, I misread the wildcards when I looked them up.

False. A third attachment is what costs two points because of the wildcard.

It's called balance. If they didn't do this, you'd only have one viable choice. You'd be dumb to not pick one extra perk instead of a pistol. Getting a secondary from the ground doesn't take effort.

Now you really have to think about your choice.

I don't really mind either way, although I do agree that there'd be pretty much no point in taking a secondary if you could just pick another gun up (although all this talk of taking an extra perk confuses me, I'd much rather have a third attachment, but I guess it depends on the gun being used).

Anyway, has this actually been confirmed?
