Faction specific weapons

Are faction specific weapons making a return in this game? At least in a limited sense. I enjoyed the BF3 part of having to reach max rank in a class to unlock the starting weapon of the class for the other side.
Having a bunch of allies running around with an STG or germans with the Garand seems weird.

    Doesn't look like it which is a shame. Only vehicles are locked..

    i dont think it will be faction specific weapons. If you have to unlock items for each gun then it would make sense to have it for all factions.

    Well that is just disappointing.

    Some EA exec's 13 year old daughter wants to know why she cannot use any gun she wants like she can in fortnite.

    Ah. That makes sense.
    I don't get why they would go to the trouble of revamping the revive and supply systems like they have, to make them see more real, and then let anyone who wants to run around with weapons from the other side.

    Like...I loved that from BF3.

    From what we've seen from youtubers, factions will have their own weapons. Don't yet know if they will allow players to use other faction weapons though.

    On one hand, faction weapons is a nice variation, but on the other, invites endless complaints about some factions having better weapons than others.

    Yep.

    I liked the idea of this feature, and then we had faction specific weapons in Hardline, and I immediately detested the feature.

    Let me use whatever weapon I want in a shooter.

    I am talking more along the lines of the BF3 way. The starting weapon for 1 factions class is the final weapon the other faction gets for the class as an unlock.
    Like in BF3 the American engineers getting the M4 and the russians unlocking that at max rank for their engineer.

    I'll use any gun I want, at any time I want in my FPS game thankyouverymuch

    Don't tell me I can't use my favorite weapon cause it's German/British/American and I'm not on that team this round

    I don't care what nationality the team I've been randomly assigned to happens to be, I want access to 100% of the arsenal regardless

    I hope they wouldn't do that. When I get that OP gun unlocked watch out PC servers

    It would indeed be cool if weapons were faction locked and you could only get them when playing as another faction picking it up in the field.
