Uh...I've gone up rank 2 times since I made this new account. And yet, I cannot figure out how to unlock new weapons???

I only have bf2, not the sf xpac.

Your first unlock is awarded at Lance Corporal, so I'm assuming you've reached that. If you have closed down your game since ranking up, the next time you launch BF2 it should just prompt you to pick the unlock.... assuming the server you ranked up on has reported it to the stats servers. If it's been long enough and it doesn't auto prompt you when you launch the game, on the game menu select the BFHQ tab and you can unlock the weapons there. Your new rank must be showing in BFHQ before it will allow you to unlock anything. Hope this helps. ;)

If I remember correctly, you should see a 'select unlock' button if you have any unlocks available. It's been a while since I unlocked anything that way... last time I ranked up I got the screen upon launch. :)

I normally get a box that appears next time I load up. The box has a choice of weapons to choose from. You'll also get another weapon on your next rank: Corporal.

ive seen and tried something on gamewinners this it it All weapons: Note: This procedure involves editing a game file and only works in v1.0.0 of the game; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "unlocks.py" file in the "\ea games\battlefield 2\python\bf2\stats" folder. Change line 44 from "defaultUnlocks = [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]" to "defaultUnlocks = [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1]". Note: Do not attempt this in multi-player mode at the risk of your account getting banned. im not going to be playinf online anytime soon so if anyone is willing to help

How do I unlock the 3rd tier sniper weapon? I have the "special forces" add on and I've just been promoted to staff sergeant (.. or the second sergeant promotion). When I start the game I get 3 options to unlock...anti tank, assault and engineer but no sniper (I already have the Barret) Please help....I'm not interested in any of those unlocks as I love going solo and sniping. Thanks
