Bad Company 2 Mod Support "Out of the Question" at Release

There's a Battlefield: Bad Company 2 interview on BASHandSlash translating a German conversation with Patrick Bach from Gamestar magazine (thanks Joker961). They ask about a few absent features, with Patrick saying the following about co-op: "One of our game modes is squad deathmatch where four players fights against three other squads. Basically this is a coop mode where one fights against a 'superior' enemy. Kind of an online coop mode. And our focus is the online gaming." Of LAN support he says: "But it might be that we will offer this later." He also indicates the game will definitely not have mod support out of the box: "The player can change settings on the dedicated server but there won't be modding tools included in the retail game. The reason is the same as coop mode. That is, we decided to focus on other aspects because we want to achieve the highest levels of quality possible, rather than a buggy game with average gameplay but with modding possibilities. Theoretically we could still add mod support after release, we just don't know yet. But it's out of the question for the retail version."

What are you talking about? I hit level 8 out of the beta's 11 limit in 3 days. I unlocked two new guns for each class at that point and more gadgets and other crap that I knew what to do with. It's nothing like the leveling in old BF games which was damned glacial.

If the leveling and equipment setup was anything like what you're describing then I wouldn't be playing BC2 at all, it drove me crazy in the older BF games. You unlock some things by playing that class and other things by leveling up period. Points are so easy to come by that no one should have any problems unlocking things. You can make 3000-5000 in a round by just sitting around spamming Q and occasionally shooting someone.

Poor splash damage on certain vehicle ammunitions, now that sucks and thats something to bitch about. The stupid knife lunge stab animation blows and ends up getting you killed half the time. Infinite sprint just seems too dodgy to me even with the map sizes. Bullet dropoff between weapons is very inconsistent. Snipers can hit targets literally across the entire map if they are good and have line of sight, stuff like that needs work. The leveling system is fine.
