On Battlefield 3 Unlocks

Battleblog #5 on the Battlefield Blog talks about the unlocks and rewards in Battlefield 3, saying there are "years worth" of such perks to be earned in DICE's upcoming military shooter sequel. Here's a bit:

Back in 2005, Battlefield 2 was one of the first shooters to introduce a deep persistence system to add that extra layer of tasty rewards and unlocks to keep players returning to the battlefield for hundreds of hours. With Battlefield 3, we are pulling all the stops. Compared to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 will have more than 10 times the hardware unlocks spread over weapons, weapons attachments, gadgets, and a huge unlock tree for vehicles alone.

Skill and dedication equal rewards
On top of these ingame hardware items, players will also be richly rewarded with medals, ribbons and service stars displaying their skill, commitment, and teamplay prowess. You will be rewarded handsomely in Battlefield 3 for exemplary skill, such as capturing X amount of bases in one round. Excellent teamplayers who keep the teamís vehicles in mint condition and revive fallen comrades will not go unnoticed either. These type of skill-driven rewards are typically handed out in the form of ribbons, and good players can often get more than one ribbon in a single round.

Also seeing that "tons of vehicle unlocks" as me running up to a tank and being told I can't use it until I log 300 hours on the ATV.

Negative. The Vehicle unlocks are customizations of the vehicles themselves. Being able to swap out certain weapon systems for others and whatnot.

Regardless of how much you've played, and how much you've accomplished, you can get into any vehicle and use the weapons it comes with by default.
