All of that stuff is unlocked in game normally. You don't gain a advantage from buying these unless everyone else doesn't have them unlocked.



I own BF3 and BF4, premium on both.

I think Bad Company 2 also let you buy weapon unlocks.

Yeah it's not really P2W. I do kinda wish that they would hold off on the shortcut bundles for a bit though.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

They did hold off on the bundles.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

Not really. Some of the best weapons in the game are weapons you get from the start or early unlocks.

I do not think it is pay to win because there is no progression in the weapons, in the sense that the ones that you unlock later are intended to be better than the ones that you unlock in the beginning.

For example, take the assault rifles. If you can not manage to do well with the M416, which is one of the earliest unlocks, then there is nothing that you will unlock later that is going to help you do any better.
