View Full Version : Platinum Star - Disappointment?

Is anyone else disappointed with the appearance of the platinum star? I mean it looks like the bronze and the silver star made love. I have even got into arguments with the other team and when I would kill them with my platinum star weapon, they would say "Nice silver star, fag" or something like that.

I mean I really don't care that much for what it looks like, but I work hard for the platinum star and it ends up looking like a mediocre silver star. I think the gold stars look way better. They could've added some sort of detail to it, wouldn't you think?

I'm planning on getting all platinum stars for every weapon/gadget and I don't want it to be mistaken as a silver star.

Is anyone else disappointed with the look of the platinum star?

And if you don't agree with me on this, I'd like to state another problem.

Whatever happened to the genre of music for this type of game? I remember that in the first Bad Company there was this type of jazz music followed by a piano. That was one of the main ingredients to the Battlefield: Bad Company series-- plus the smiley faced grenades. :)

I have to admit, I'm really disappointed with the look of the platinum star. My friend doesn't have a HD TV and you cannot tell the difference between the two. As you said, your so disappointed when people think that you've only got a silver star on a weapon when you've worked so hard for the 1000 kill platinum star! I suppose some people are just so nooby they cant tell the difference!

Music was so annoying in the menu , i'm glad they remove it.

As for the star I didn't see a platinum yet , but I imagine how hard it can be to see a difference between silver and platinum .. They should make it a completly different color , like redish or something more visible

Yea the star is too small to tell which one it is even with an HDTV. I have a 1080p TV and can't tell the difference. It would have been sweet if we got gold plated weapons or something for getting a platinum star.

Do you mean the music in Bad Company 1 or 2? Because the music in Bad Company was amazing.

What does it matter? Just kill people, and it's better if you humiliate them (like stabbing a sniper that hasn't moved since he got his first kill) They make fun of your star because they have been humiliated.

Yep deffo m8 i have platinum on my HEAVY VEHICLES and XM8 COMPACT and i too cannot tell the difference. I have a 42 inc hd tv SHARP AQUOS and the platinum stars look just like the silva stars . Like the above poster said a little tint of red or somthink to make it stand out would be good.


As for the grenades the smiley faces are there. you just dont hold them in front off you like you did in the first bad company. If i remember rightlty you held the nade in your hand before lobbing. yo cant do that in BFBC2

EDIT: or for the platinum issue like the dog taggs when you get killed by a platinum weapon you have a stat page with a list of platinum shrapnel with gamer tags on them so the platinum killer stands out.

Silver? Plaitnum? Whats the difference!?

03-27-2010, 03:41 PM
I'd just like to know how many golds stars you have to earn for a specific weapon before you get your first Platinum star? I have five 5 gold stars on the XM8 and can't find any info on wether or not I'm even close.

Nevermind, found the answer, it's 10 gold stars for those of you that are curious or didn't already know.

I feel distinguished enough whenever I kill someone. I just got done playing Arica Harbor on defense. Several enemies were on the sniping hill above our base. I went around, killed 1, knifed the other, then killed the last one. They didn't even notice I was there. Retarded :chair

I didn't want something silly like a platinum gun or anything, but it would have been nice for the people I kill to know they were taken out by a platinum weapon. Even just having 'Gold Star x10' would have been better than having what is basically the silver star.

I guess it only matters if a gamer cares what others think. You know it's a platinum medal, why should it matter what someone else thinks? Does this size, shape or color of a "medal" take away from the accomplishment of earning it? I dont think so.

I think we can put too much stock into what others think, when in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter.

They could make it like a crown or something. I think that'd be cool.

And yes, I do miss the music a lot; also the radio in vehicles.

I think that the "platinum" star should be black or red.

If people really make fun of you because of your star, thats pretty fucking sad. Tell them to get a life.

i dont care what star is what i just kill or be killed. The only thing i want to do when i have been killed is to hunt down the person who just shot me i take no notice of what star he is on with the certain weapon, who cares i don't

TBH, I didn't even know you can see what star the enemy had, until I read this thread. Lmao.

It would be easier to tell if you unlocked a camo for your gun, not COD style, when you have platinum.

Is it 1000 kills for everything. I have a gold 5* for heavy vehicles and only have around 250 kills total with them. Don't know what other weapon to go for 1000 in, probs one of th assault rifles, maybe the last one. But my best weapon is still the XM8 as i use them all pretty equally, lol. Only got 289 kills with it :(

Only got 289 kills with it :( Actually not, some attachments are less. I only needed like 10 kills with the rocket launchers as well, I'm not sure what the knife goes by, but I jsut got gold star 5 for it and I only have 250-300 kills with it so far

Not true, knives for example require 100 kills per level.


OT: Definately agree, it should flash or be extra shiny or something :P

Per level? Do you mean like bronze/silver/gold etc

They should update the damn star and update the stars for the M1 Garand, like wtf?! Sure, the platinum star is a bit bigger zoomed in but zoomed out it barely looks "platinum"!

Yhh thats what i meant lol they don't stand out very well.

To be fair to DICE, Platinum is supposed to be a silverish-gray metal. So instead of a reddish tint, which is wrong, it needs to be a little more blueish to make it stand out. And make sense. So people don't whine.

Yea, I'm playing on a 106 inch 1080i projector screen and I can still barely tell if a start says 8 or 3 haha.

The colour does suck majorly. It should be a blueish colour, or at least one that stands out far more. Red for example, i know its not the colour of platinum but it should make the victim aware that you are a major bad ass :)

Good luck with that one, stopping people from crying.
