Ranks and Unlocks?
« on: 17-01-2019, 20:01:03 »
New player to FH2 here. Got a few questions.

Sometimes I'll see people running around with different weapons than the ones you can choose in the kit selection screen. EX. On Point Du Hoc, the Machinegunner to me appears to only carry a BAR as his primary weapon, however, I've noticed some people running around with .30 cals and such. Are there unlocks you can obtain and how?

Also, I've been checking from time to time on the BFHQ screen, and it seems my rank doesnt go up at all, I've played quite a few games, and I'm still Private and the progress bar to PFC hasnt filled at all. Is this normal?

BFHQ is only tied to BF2 and has never functioned with FH2. With the EA server shutdown, BFHQ is presumably completely driven down by now and it does not take you anywhere. This feature is just a BF2 remnant and you should not be concerned about it when you are playing FH2.

There are no unlocks in FH2, instead it has pickup kits littered around the map that you can grab for yourself (default key G I believe). These weapons are usually heavy weapons such as deployable machineguns, mortars, sniper rifles, flamethrowers, anti-tank weapons and generally some extra firepower. Sometimes you might stumble upon some of the rarer weapons such as the Fliegerfaust or an easter egg kit like the angry farmer or Indiana Jones kit. These kits are pretty much always littered around on tables or crates and are usually located near player spawn locations, ammoboxes or within main bases.

You can check your progress here (assuming you played on one of the [762] servers). Simply type your nick in the search bar and it will show you all of your score, rank, medals etc.

Quite detailed list of most of the pickup kits with their exact location on the maps can be found here. Mind it's made by one of our community members, it's not official and we are not responsible for any information on the website, some kits may be outdated, some missing, most of the locations is correct though and worth checking.  ;)

Thank you. I can see I'm about halfway to the next rank, which seems to take an extremely long time because I think I do pretty well in playing the objectives and getting kills. Just time consuming I guess.

That system was designed at a time where these ranking system had a more "long term" perspective.
