FOUR REIMAGINED BATTLEFIELD MAPS
Back to Karkand features four of the most beloved Battlefield 2 maps (Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Wake Island and Sharqi Peninsula), all fully re-imagined utilizing the power of the Frostbite 2 engine.
MORE WEAPONS, MORE VEHICLES
Enhance the signature Battlefield "Rock, Paper, Scissor" gameplay with an arsenal of ten new weapons that you can bring back to the base game and three new vehicles including the STOVL fighter jet, desert buggy, and an APC.
ENHANCED DESTRUCTION
Frostbite 2 creates a whole new level of life-like destruction. The enhanced destruction in this expansion pack lets you turn entire maps into rubble. Chip away at cover, blow holes in walls, and bring down building façades on enemies.
CONQUEST ASSAULT
Back to Karkand marks the return of the classic Conquest Assault mode from Battlefield 2. A slight twist on the beloved Conquest mode, Conquest Assault starts with one team commanding all flags on the map while the opposing team must assault and take the flags over in order to stop their tickets from bleeding down to zero.
ENHANCED PERSISTENCE
With the introduction of the all-new Assignments, Back to Karkand features an added layer of persistence on top of what is in the base game. With a vast range of unlockables and upgrades, the combined persistence in Battlefield 3 and Back to Karkand will keep players occupied even longer.
PERSONALIZED DOG TAGS
Players can express their individuality with five new dog tags including Dolphin Diving and One Man Army. Players can pick the design that showcases their play style best and show it off on the battlefield
they didnt list the new fork lift you can ride either! +2 passengers

WTF
I have been having this as well, ever since the dec 6th patch.

So far I tried uninstalling and re installing from scratch and it worked for a while, about 2-3 days and then problem started again, my guess some file is getting corupted by either getting too big or something i have no idea.

But found this on forums and so far has been working,

when the map is over and right after the unlocks when it countsdown to next level, hit alt+enter, let it minimize and go back to desktop then as soon as it loads next map hit alt+enter again it a pain but it works.

so far I unlocked two weapons from those assignments, the FAMAS on the assuult side, and the G53 on the Engineer side.

The Famas is a nice weapon, feels like a M416 i guess, funny i was using it and i kept hearing people in chat saying they need to nerf it so powerful, I am like really? Just because you get killed by a weapon doesn't mean it should get nerfed

I was getting the same thing for quite a while. I switched my default browser from Chrome to Firefox and for the last 3 days haven't had the issue. Maybe just luck or it may be a browser issue.

I freaking hate the F35. Why do they add needless sh*t into the game.

So last night this POS was still hanging up on "Loading" in the right hand bottom corner of the display when servers would switch to the next map.

Oddly enough though Ghost's suggestion seem to solve the issue for me. If I alt-tab back to the desktop while I'm in the waiting area with the countdown timer going, and I let it sit long enough, I can alt-tab back to the game and the server is there, the map has loaded, and it all seems to work.

Obviously they still have some bugs to sort out in this thing.

Check out the Time To Kill charts here.
If you click on the different distance columns, it will sort showing you the fastest weapon to kill with at that distance.

At 1 & 10 Meters, the 870 MCS shotty wins, at all greater distances, the Famas wins.
