Has anyone got to play with this bad boy?

Has anyone had the pleasure of using or seeing the Bofors in action while playing BF2142? There are videos of it. But the mystery behind it has me wondering, has anyone found it in a teammate's inventory pack? Or stolen it from a dead enemy? If so, tell your story, let's hear how awesome this legendary weapon is.

    Hm, never saw that before. What does it take to unlock it? I only went the Assault/Recon routes...

    It looks like a mod for single player...

    It's not a mod. It's the replacement weapon for the EU assault rifle if you preordered the game.

    Yes, I have picked it up once or twice from an enemy, but then again that's nothing special, I preordered it myself, so its a non-issue.

    The gun itself works exactly like its smaller brethren.

    So it's just a giant version of another rifle?
    What a waste...

    Yes, it is exactly the same, except some people prefer its bulkiness.

    Yeah i picked it up once, i just ran like hell to the end of the map so i woulden't die, didn't work though, someone decided to orbital strike our commander and i was next to him.
    The second time i picked it up in the same round, i got run over by a teammate
    /facepalm

    I actually like it, the sounds for it were differant and it was nice to see a differant weapon in your hands.

    The gun is just an alternate model for one of the 2 sides Assault Rifles, it was actually a pre-order bonus, I have it.

    It only looks and sounds different, it behaves exactly the same, I believe it was originally intended to be an unlock but they cut it and used it as a pre-order bonus instead.

    It's retarded. Takes up half the screen, and I never use the SCAR anyway.

    I actually got to use some Northern Strike Unlocks, like the flare grenade/rocket. That's actually fun. I've yet to see the BOFORS though. ...

    The BOFORS is NOT AN UNLOCKABLE. PERIOD.

    ATTENTION--> IT IS A PRE-ORDER MODEL/SOUND REPLACEMENT FOR THE EU SCAR 11 ASSAULT RIFLE.

    It functions exactly the same. No different. No way to unlock it. NS has nothing to do with the bofors. Only preorders purchased at least one week in advance of the release received the bofors replacement. NO. ONE. ELSE.

    Please note that any vibe of anger or frustration noticed in this statement probably IS anger or frustration. It isn't difficult to understand. :)

    Um, I was only talking about the NS strike unlock. Not comparing it to Bofors >.>

    Well that's good, hopefully we'll be able to play a round, You know what I hate? RDX spammers. I love the RDX but I like setting up trap areas, not just randomly running up to a group of enemies and blowing them up and watch you fly away. I know I can do that. But I like being realistic, setting up traps using the rdx to get to places you normally can't and actually snipe. RDX users that just run and blow people up are goddamn noobs.

    I seriously hate RDX spammers, and gunship whores.
    The sniper is ok, though the tint on the Zeller is gay and that's why i don't use it.

    Zeller is actually pointless. Headshots are overkill with it, and body shots do the same amount of damage as the regular rifles. And the three-round clip is balls to the walls fucking awful.

    I use the RDX shotty because I love it.

    RDX shottie is overkill imo. It is pretty awesome, though.

    In my opinion, camping with either a Voss or a Clarke when protecting the titan is key.
    And using a Baur/Lambert when assaulting always ended up well for me.
    RDX shottie is fun, but i havn't used it much really.

    That blows.
    I've gotten a few kills with them. I'd like to have a high kill ratio though next time I get them.

    It'd be nice to see a stat on a NS unlock go up even when I don't have Northern Strike.
