Unique In-Game Content for July?

I just saw today that the soldier upgrade is coming tomorrow for premium members. Anyone have any guesses on what it's gonna be. I hope more than a knife and dog tags again, but the assignments for the dog tags were pretty fun.

It's confirmed that it's going to be soldier and weapon camos. Nothing really that special, although I hope the weapon camos have to be acquired rather than just given to us.

Like green light said just weapon skins and soldier camos. I believe one of them will be for the Scar-H, but I hope the skins are for different weapons this time around. I haven't been reading too much about this but is there any news on if we do get any new dog tags down the line?

I'm pretty sure it's just for the F2000, SCAR-H, PKP, and L96 again. And I don't think we get any new dog tags either, at least not with this upgrade.

How can you be pretty sure? No one I know of has even heard anything but rumors and speculation as to what it could be.

It's mentioned on the Premium calendar what the drop will contain.

Do you think they will ever release different types of ammo for premium players? Like hallow point and FMJ?? Or prolly not b/c that would make the game unbalanced?

Probably not. Any time one segment gets something that gives them an advantage, the other segment will scream bloody murder. Besides, do you recall Stopping Power and Juggernaut? Kind of ruined COD in my opinion.

Camo for the same 4 weapons. I like the PKP and L96 but abhor the F2000 and SCAR-H.
Wish they'd give us camo for other god damn weapons.

I'm not even going to try for some of the more time consuming/difficult ones, if they were for different weapons I would try to get them but for weapons I don't use much, no thanks.

Haha. Spot on! I'd like to see camos for the SCAR-L, the 870 or maybe the M240B.

I'll pass on the first three, but I don't mind the SCAR-H so much. The SCAR-L is definitely better though.

Same here. Dissapointed that they're just slapping the same four guns with a new camo, I'm going to stick with the guns I enjoy using rather than grind out some additional camo.

is this not the hardest one?

5 air vehicles killed with AT launchers (RPG/SMAW/Javelin)

who does flying with out ir flares?

and correct me if im wrong, but you can only use a javelin on an aircraft if someone "marks" them.

all the other are time consuming, except for the 350m head shot one.

No, you don't have to only use a Javelin. RPGs and SMAWs work just as well, and they're one-hit kills. Only catch is you have to either wait for someone to fly too low like an idiot or try and lead the target.

what im asking, is that you cant use the javelin to shoot down an aircraft unless someone else marks them otherwise you cant lock on.

My mistake, I misread that.

Well, as long as you're working together with a Recon with SOFLAM, it shouldn't be that hard to take them down.

Dude, they are all garbage except for the L96. Just hate having to use these weapons when Dice has a whole new set too choose from. Not to mention the camo for all the guns are ugly.

Wonder what it is about these weapons that gives DICE such a hard-on. Don't see why they can't make skins for other weapons.

I'll do the assignments just for something to do. Got nothing else but medals to go for so I might as well.

I used to hate the PKP but then I came to like it. And the F2000 isn't actually garbage, it's just easy-mode incarnate and I'd much rather challenge myself than piss my way through an assignment haha

I hope the next camo batch is for new weapons. I really don't mind the L96, PKP and SCAR climbing the ranks of my most-used weapons but I'd feel dirty if the F2000 got so much as near my top 10.


Edit: just checked Battlelog and it actually is my #10 weapon God damn it DICE!

Haha! I hear ya bro! I can't stand the F2000, but it's my #3 weapon at 652 kills. Why, you ask? Simply because I had already earned 500 kills for the mastery tag and then I had to go back and do the previous assignment for X amount of kills and headshots, and now I have to back to it again to do yet another meaningless assignment. DICE needs to stop twisting our arms to use the same 4 garbage weapons. The PKP Pecheneg really isn't worth using in comparison to ANY of the other LMGs. And the M26? Really? As if people didn't get a big enough dose of the M26 with the underbarrel glitch? I'm not 100% certain, but I think that H0p3sfaiL and I have come to the conclusion that for destroying aerial vehicles with AT weapons, the Transport Chopper does not count towards this assignment, but the Attack Chopper does.

The M26 didn't need a glitch for people to hate it. It's just naturally gay .

Fortunately my top 3 is relatively 'safe'. Nothing's knocking the knife off top at 1505 kills, then it's the L85A2 at 806 and the 870MSC at 764. After that, every weapon is between 500-700 and the F2000 has just snatched #10 at 628 kills. It took me forever getting the FAMAS out of there because I felt dirty with it in my top 10 and now this!
As for the M26, I liked it way before the whole Dart glitch debauchery and really won't mind using it again, although it does mean moving on from 666 kills. Part of me couldn't give two flying shits about new camo for the F2000 but the completionist in me is a complete bastard that won't let me not do it!

My Top 10 is in ruins. The Pecheneg is #2 and the F2000 is #3... Ugh. Thankfully, I have already finished the 100 kills with the PKP and the F2000, and I also knocked out the 25 M26 kills as well. Now I just need to wrap up Claymore/C4 kills and then I'll knock out the 100 L96 kills/50 MAV spots and I'll be done!
