Probably not the AK, but yes I'm sure there will be lots of grinding to be had to unlock weapons.
BFBC2 only took a few hours to unlock damn near all the weapons - and even then the majority of stuff isn't worth using. I am sure the same will be said with BF3.
The leveling is just a way to keep people interested - I haven't seen any bearing on ability to play in ANY of the BF games - nor CoD for that matter.
1[Basically because I was a latecomer to the game, I had to ENJOY getting my ass kicked because I had inferior weapons...
After about a month of playing I got most of the unlocks I wanted and then the game was pretty good. But yeah... That would just be your inability to adapt. I find myself kicking ass anytime I prestige or even in BF games I rarely use the higher up weapons. I don't agree with the "my weapons aren't as good as yours so I suck" argument. It is lame.
