So....this game sounds more and more like an MMO....Will we have to grind to unlock the AK-47?

Probably not the AK, but yes I'm sure there will be lots of grinding to be had to unlock weapons.

I suppose if you define playing the game normally as "grinding" then yes, there will be plenty of it. It's far from an MMO's sitting in the same spot killing the same mobs a thousand times over. Just play the game in whatever manner you enjoy most and things useful to you will unlock.

Yeah, if you go back to battlefield 2, you had your standard loadout which changed by faction and class, plus exactly 2 unlocks per class.

Now you have a standard loadout that changes by faction and class, plus a dozen unlocks per class, and a handful of vehicle and general purpose unlocks. So there's tons of stuff to experiment with, and countless possible builds. And unlike an MMO that has diminishing returns, you're always unlocking new stuff at a steady clip until you have everything.

Basically, the unlocking process guides you through trying out every weapon and gadget in the game. I've really enjoyed it both in the recent Battlefield games and in the last CoD game. Because I never felt like there was any shortage of new things to try.
