Each of the four kits in Battlefield 3 has it’s own unique set of unlockable weapons and gadgets. These items are exclusive to each class, and can only be earned by playing as that class.

Check out the individual unlockables for each of Battlefield 3’s kits.

There are a ton of rewards to be earned by focusing on a specific class in Battlefield 3, but that doesn’t mean you can’t taste all that the other classes have to offer. The great thing about having multiple classes is that you never have to get bored. If Recon is starting to become tiresome, for example, there’s nothing to stop you from trying out Support for a round or two.

Who knows, you just might like it.
