Possible glitch with battlefield 3 ps3 rock and hard place mission getting stinger missile

★★★ Newbie

I am playing battlefield 3 for ps3 and keep getting stuck trying to retrieve the stinger missile near the end of the rock and a hard place mission.  when I am told to get the stinger missile from the growler I see the blue sign saying stinger missile but when I go around the burned out vehicle there is nothing on the ground. When I back up the word stinger shows on the ground but there is nothing there. I've looked on walkthrough sites and they show a stinger missile lying on the ground. Did something happen during the ridiculously long original game load or am I doing something wrong. thanks for any help.

As far as we know,the patch update released before DLC Aftermath,,for some reason introduced this Glitch/Bug into the campaign,people have told EA the problem over twitter and EA said that they would look into it

If you go to game data utility in the xmb, delete the battlefield 3 data (NOT your save game data), start the game, press circlewhen prompted for the update, load campain, select previous mission, select rock and a hard place, the stinger will be there.
