There’s plenty of news floating around about Battlefield 3’s dedication to addictive online play, some of which includes kit completion. Demize99 (Alan Kertz – Senior Gameplay Designer) let us know that there will be a total of 50 authentic Marine ranks in Battlefield 3. There have been no details into how the point system works to obtain these ranks or how many points it takes to gain ranks. Bad Company 2 also had fifty gameplay ranks, many people achieved these ranks quickly. DICE’s dedication to “years of unlocks” may hint that it may take many dedicated hours/days/months to obtain the higher ranks in Battlefield 3.
