RPG elements in first-person shooters are all the rage these days, especially when it comes to the multiplayer modes. Modern Warfare 2 has a popular system of unlocks gained through experience, and its main competitor, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, has one as well.
The unlocking system should be familiar to anyone who played Battlefield 2, each class has its own unique set of weapons and specializations to earn as you gain experience. The class-specific weapons are not swappable between kits, but there is also a separate set of unlockable shotguns and rifles that are.
Check out all the unlockables in Bad Company 2, along with the point values necessary to unlock them.

Assault Kit Unlockables
You can earn assault kit experience by taking out enemy soldiers, defending and attacking control points, and assisting your squad mates. You can also earn decent xp by dropping ammo boxes near your teammates.
- The first unlockable in the Assault Kit (for those who didn't purchase the Limited Edition, anyway) is the Ammo Box. This box can serve as a resupply point when dropped anywhere on the battlefield. the Ammo Box is unlocked at 1,180 assault experience points.
- Next up is the XM8 Prototype rifle. Unlock it by gaining 3,020 total experience points.
- The 40mm Smoke Launcher attachment is unlocked at 5,410 experience points. This launcher attaches to the bottom of your assault rifle in place of the regular grenade launcher. Unlock it with 5,410 experience points.
- Upon gaining a total of 8,100 experience points with the assault kit, the F2000 Assault is unlocked.
- Next, at 10,900 experience points, comes the 40mm Shotgun. Like the smoke launcher, this shotgun attaches to the bottom of the assault rifle barrel. It's a great way to finish off an enemy at close range.
- At 13,9000 experience, you unlock the Assault Rifle Red Dot Sight. These custom optics allow for more rapid target acquisition and easier aiming.
- The 4X Rifle Scope becomes available at 17,000 experience points. This 4X magnification scope increases your gun's effectiveness at medium range.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Engineer Kit Unlockables
Engineer kit experience points can be earned in all the normal ways, like defeating enemy soldiers and capturing battlefield objectives, but they can also be earned by repairing friendly vehicles in the field and destroying enemy armor.
- The first unlockable in the Engineer Kit is one of the most useful. The Repair Tool is available at 1,070 experience points. This tool allows you to repair damaged vehicles in the field. Limited Edition buyers begin the game with it already unlocked.
- The second unlockable in the Engineer Kit in Bad Company 2 is the Scar-L Carbine. This silenced weapon is unlocked at 2,510 total engineer experience points.
- Third, the Anti-Tank Mine is unlocked at 4,390 total experience points. Use it to ambush enemy armor and take them out from below.
- The XM8 Compact is available upon collecting 6,500 Engineer Kit experience points.
- Your first RPG upgrade, the M2CG Missile Launcher, is available at 8,700 experience points. This launcher is specially designed to be used for bunker busting and against enemy infantry, but it is less effective than other options against enemy armor. Like the RPG, it is capable of locking on to a carefully-placed tracer dart.
- Gain 11,100 experience points to unlock the SMG Red Dot Sight for your Engineer Kit. Like the assault version, this sight allows rapid target acquisition and improved aiming with your SMG.

- Marksman SMG Training is available at 21,300 engineer experience points. This upgrade improves the accuracy of all SMG weapons.
- The Uzi SMG is unlocked at a total of 25,600 experience points.
