After bronze, how many of you will use a weapon to get the next points for silver, gold, and platinum? I ask because I am 100 kills away from platinum with the M60, but the idea of running around with the M60 is really not that interesting. I already have 2 platinum weapons (even if one is the Bradley), so I don't need it for the insignias. What would you do? Do you have a weapon that is close to the next level, but you would prefer not to use it?

100 kills? I'm am not all that interested in stats, but that's so close it would just feel like something left undone not to finish it off.

Two more days and I'm on a 1 1/2 month vacation!!! Just Platinum'd the An-94! Need about 140 more to Platinum the UMP-45! Then I'll start the M416.

Mmm I'm still looking for my first platinum... :-o

Which ones you think are the quickest?
Obviously it depends on your playing style, but for example the heavy vehicle one is relatively easy...

for me i think the an-94 is the best gun for my stile of play and was prety easy to get the platinum,but it always depends on your stile of play

For me, my first Platinum was the M246 SAW. I LOVE that machine gun. Since you're a medic, you tend to keep yourself alive more often than not. The AN-94 is a sweet, sweet weapon. I also like the M416, but I'm working on that one right now to get my 1K kills. You hardly ever lose in a fire fight with that gun. Sniper weapons take the longest, but if you play hardcore a lot, then you'll get it faster. I have my M-24 done, but my M95 is nearing 500 kills. If you want to use the sniper rifles but not camp, then use the Red-Dot sight as you run and gun, it's super effective.

BTW, has anyone noticed that the C4, Grenades, Vehicle, and Knife Platinum medals aren't counted in the Platinum star count? That's weird. :-?

I sure didn't know that. Do you know if they count toward the get two platinum stars insignia?

My second is coming down to a race between the xm8 and the knife, and after playing with the an94 I was thinking of switching guns for a while, but if the knife doesn't count, I will probably finish out the xm8.

I don't think you can double up on Platinum stars. I've seen people with over 3,000 kills with guns and they just have a platinum X1 on their stats. I have the M24, M246 SAW, M60, AN-94, SCAR-L, C-4, Knife, Grenades, and USAS-12 at Platinum, but my stats only show 6 Platinum stars. I don't think it counts the C-4, Knife, grenades, and now I notice not even the vehicle platinum star. You DO get the 10K points, but you DON'T get the mention on your stats signature. :((

Dumb NooB question (as per usual), but how many kills do you need to get a Platnium Star? I guess by asking the question it is pretty obvious that I don't have any. L-) I think I am at 498 kills on the M60.

1000 kills will get platinum in normal weapons

Knives and Grenades are 500 kills to Platinum. As a matter of fact, all gadget weapons are 500 to Platinum. As JK said, the rest are 1K kills...or if you FedEx me a Snapple Slushie I'll give you one of mine. :hug:

So, basically what you are saying is that I will never get a platinum star. Good to know, good to know.

[FYI, just called FedEx and a six pack o' snapple is currently chillin' in the freezer.]

Daylite, I've seen you drive a tank, and am betting you've got platinum on the heavy vehicles.

Oh, hey, look at that! I guess you're right! I clicked on my own signature graphic and it says I have a combined heavy vehicle kill count of 1001! I think the stat site is slightly out of date, but it looks like I actually do have a platinum star afterall (luckily they count the aggregate of all kills for all heavy vehicles...'cuz I ain't anywhere close to 1000 kills with any individual tank :D ). Thanks!

FYI
Once you get a platinum star with a weapon it might best if you stop using it and start working on another type of gun. I thought that when I hit 2000 kills with my M60 I would get a second platinum star but it did not happen.

I found this out over the weekend and it sucks. Once you hit platinmum there are no more points to earn with that weapon.

Yeah, i hate that. you should be able to continue with platinums at least. Exspecially since the exp required to lvl at the higher rankes is a little rediculous.

Well, once you pass level 42, the amount required starts to drop.
