Why the hell do you get a new skin SCAR 11 in UK, but in US/Canada, you get to have an all new weapon that cant be unlocked by ranking up.

https://bf2142.com/content/images/3/32/BOFORS.jpg

The Bofors Defence machine gun is an exclusive reward for pre-ordering Battlefield 2142™ from Best Buy in North America or Future Shop in Canada. As Battlefield gamers can attest, unlocks are one of the most appealing aspects of the franchise - it's all about getting the points you need to unlock all of the best weapons. However, no amount of points will ever get you this weapon, so if you haven't pre-ordered yet, find out more here www.bestbuy.com.

I dont really care, except for the fact this weapon cant be unlocked in-game or so they say in the message i quoted, which pisses me off cause it's only for US and Canadian residents.

Err.... Now that's just odd.... Another way for EA to make money? And I'm guessing that this "Bofors defense machine gun" is just a skin, with no different stats than a standard rifle for one of the sides. Although, like I said, it could be a way for EA to make $, I doubt that they would go through the trouble to make a whole new gun just for best buy....

I think it's a just a new skin, but they're trying to make it sound more appealing.  I must say, I'm sorely tempted.  I hate the look of the SCAR 11.

Maybe, but then again, maybe EA will soon make you buy this thing so that you can get the SCAR 11 skin and this gun as well. Probably a booster pack thing.

Bad thread revival! Bad, bad!

Just look around dude, there's plenty of pictures of it. It's giant and takes up a quarter of your screen, but the scope is pretty good. That being said, the SCAR 11 is the most useless of the four assault rifles, so...
