DICE has revealed some statistics around the Battlefield 3 open beta, highlighting that 8,125,310 participated.

“Did you know that if we had an empty 9mm casing for every shot fired in the Open Beta, we would have enough brass to melt and build almost 3,900 SU-27 Flanker jets?” writes DICE on the Battlefield blog. “Okay, Flankers are not made out of brass, but still.”

Other statistics include the longest headshot recorded, the number of objectives destroyed and the amount of health regenerated. Each statistic comes with a bizarrely unrelated real-world comparison. You can find them all in the infographic below.

Battlefield 3 is to be released on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on the 28th of October.
