Soldier

Overview

The Soldier overview is the first screen the player sees when loading the game. The overview provides players with an overview of their career advancement, statistics, available training, and other data.

Achievements

The achievements page provides a player information about the various achievements in America's Army 3. From here, players can see the requirements for various achievements and any progress they have made on those achievements. Achievements are broken down into three categories: Coins, Ribbons and Badges/Medals. Coins can be won multiple times, and awarded for meeting milestones in multiplayer action. Ribbons, Badges and Medals are awarded primarily for excelling at training, but some are also awarded for some multiplayer activities

Statistics

The statistics page provides information on player performance in multiplayer games. Players will be able to see where they have hit enemy players and where they have been hit. In addition, they will be able to see their in-game statistics on scoring and general performance in multiplayer games.

Training

Basic Combat

In the U.S. Army, Basic Combat Training (BCT) is a nine-week training course in which recruits go through the process of becoming full-fledged Soldiers. Throughout the process, they learn new rules, learn to trust themselves and understand what it means to be a Soldier in the U.S. Army. In America's Army, Basic Combat Training (BCT) is the formal introduction to not only U.S. Army Soldiering, but also to the core game mechanics used when playing the game. The training events throughout BCT strives to give the authentic feel of real Army training, while also providing the player with valuable tutorials on the basics of playing America's Army.

Successful completion of BCT allows access to Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) training, which allows the player to specialize in one of the class roles of America's Army 3.

MOS Training

After graduating from Basic Combat Training (BCT) as an 11-B Infantryman you can pursue a career to refine your skills in your chosen specialty, or to broaden your skills through other specialties and a secondary MOS. Other specialties will unlock additional equipment that you will be able to employ in online gameplay. A secondary MOS opens an entirely different skill set to you and your Fireteam, shifting the odds to your team's favor by employing other Army disciplines or assets to the battlefield. A secondary MOS usually requires more advancement points than 11-B specialty training but offers a wider career path.
