Hmmm, I wonder if thats impacted by "weaker" players buying guns because they think it will make them better and in the end they are still just not very good? If you can just unlock the guns later (don't know if this is the case in Heroes) then "stronger" players will just wait until they get the unlock.Considering they did this before, or something similar, with Battlefield Heroes and they noticed that letting people buy weapons had no substantial impact on game-play (from what I remember reading, the stats showed that people who bought guns didn't perform any better than those that hadn't. The marginal difference between weps wasn't enough to suddenly make people better or screw up the game), this isn't that surprising.
Personally in BF2 and BC2 I'm a middle of the pack player (usually top 5 in a server but I've run into enough good players to know my place) and I would never buy weapons I could just unlock later. Now if they are exclusive, such as the "SA" (SPECACT or something like that) weapons in BC2, I'll buy them (for a reasonable price) just to get the extra pins/awards they open up. It's silly, I know, but for some reason I really enjoy going after all the awards I can while still helping my side win.
In this case it will be interesting to see if these really are different weapons or new skins like the "SA" guns.
