Blacklight IS pay-to-win... They do that same bullshit as Battlefield where you never get to unlock new weapons permanently unless you pay money. It's all one- or three-day unlocks with the free in-game currency you earn by playing. So you can either play all day in order to earn ONE weapon unlock to use the next day, or throw some money down and unlock various (and better) weapons so you have more utility and flexibility.

You can unlock weapons permanently in Blacklight Retribution using the in-game currency, albeit at a drastically increased cost (5500GP vs. 200GP for a receiver). It's a setting in account options. Although, I still haven't had any problems dominating some games still using just the basic loadout, so I still would not say that anyone who pays for items in that game have any real advantage.
