I found the opposite... I had to get my son to unlock all the Jabba Contracts for me on the last game as it was taking me ages. I am motoring along in this one, unlocked the second Assault Rifle and two of its unlocks already.I can see why some might feel i is 'grindy' but I have been playing for 2 weeks and am level 19 with a decent range of weapons unlocked. I am progressing a lot quicker than I expected. Now I have unlocked second rank guns for each Class I am just concentrating on playing Assault now as it is my favourite Class.If you only get an hour or so of play a week some of those milestones must feel like they are unreachable.
i think they should cut down the number of kills needed to unlock gun upgrades down to 50. the jabbas contracts in the previous battle front where way better than this. its too much of a grind.
I forgot to say that the great himg about janbas contracts were that the kill count for unlockable wasn't too demanding. Just get 50 -75 kills with a certain weapon and use a charge card and get kills with a throwable and that's it in battlefront two to get the next unlockable you have to get 100 more kills than you got for the next unlockable.
