    The new sniper rifle is the JHG-90 apparently, a Turkish bolt-action rifle fed from a 10-round magazine of 7.62 NATO.

    So basically it's every bolt action sniper except the M98B, what an exciting new addition to the game.

    These videos make it look far cooler than what it's gonna be with actual players.

    Maybe with fewer players.. The maps do look cool though. How many more new maps is it gonna be anyway? Any vehicle (helicopter) maps?

    I have to say, as much as some people may hate it, I think the close quarters combat dlc looks great so far

    small scale maps with (hopefully) hectic gameplay. Perfect for console gamers that just want to get into a game quickly without worrying about vehicles and all that, and perfect for when you want to play a fast paced match. Looks like the shootouts will be extremely satisfying, but we're yet to see how it actually is when it comes out i suppose

    Edited:

    4 close quarter maps, probably no vehicles on any of them, all 16 player maps..

    wait for the next two dlc if it's not what you want

    Yeah the consoles aren't any worse off actually.. In these maps, on PC, there will be 64player madness and there will be whining.

    pretty sure there wont be 64 players even on the pc, while I can see people maybe wanting 64 player maps, 16 seems fine for the size of the maps imo, 32 would be pushing it, maybe 24 would be a good maximum though

    Those are my favorite type of maps as well.
    However, unlike most of the previous entries, BF3 has very well done infantry combat and has the potential to be a lot of fun in a deathmatch mode. Only problem is that most of the deathmatch map version suck right now.

    Lets be honest though BF2's expansions were full blown additions that added a whole bunch of new stuff

    BF3's DLC on the other hand is mostly a map pack, with some weapons on the side and a small handfull of new vehicles exclusive to those maps. Most people just get it for the maps though, the other stuff is just bonus for most I'd say.

    It's funny because those added fewer maps and fewer guns/vehicles each.

    Those CQC maps are probably going to be a hell of a fun on 4v4, and maybe 8v8 too depending on size.

    Edited:

    Anyone else notice the scar had a shotgun crosshair at one point in that trailer?

    The Scar-H isn't new though
    Here's the list of what I spotted that's new:
    jng-50 - recon
    Lsat - support
    Mtar-21 - whatev's
    aug a3 - whatever
    spas-12 - shotgun
    ACW-R - whatev's
    417 confirmed by that dude somewhat above me

    Here's something though; the support here looks like he has a silenced revolver:

    Don't mind the 417, I didn't think anyone else saw it.

    Amazing, the stupidity of some players. I was going quite well with my M26 Dart (No heavy barrel):


    Yet they still whine about me abusing bugs. Makes sense, because getting shot in the face with a shotgun would never kill you without that bug right??!!

    They also pulled the "it takes months to compile the maps" card on the battlelog forums which is also bullshit.
