Get free Battlefield 4 multiplayer XP and items every day in February

31
Found 30th Jan 2014
Just a heads up really for people like me who play BF4 now and again, its worth logging in every day next month for the freebies.

EA said...

28 days equals 28 free Battlepacks, in case you're struggling to crunch the numbers. "Normally, it would take approximately 30 hours gameplay to earn that many packs," observes a Battlelog post. You'll get Bronze Packs on weekdays, and Silver Packs at the weekend. Don't forget to activate those XP Boosts, comrades, or they'll just sit there looking all sad and progress-rich.

EA will also release two free shortcut bundles in February. "These voluntary shortcut bundles will unlock all grenades and handguns for Battlefield 4 (the base game) so you can make up for lost time. Or if you're new to the game, they will help you catch up with players who have been on the Battlefield since launch. We will get back to you with more details once we have set release dates for these items.

"For all of our Battlefield 4 Premium users, we're adding two additional weapon shortcuts, unlocking DMR's and shotguns," the post continues. "That way, if you like, you can quickly get your hands on a large portion of the weapons available in Battlefield 4."

Besides the free stuff, you can look forward to a Double XP Weekend (two if you're a Premium member) and a number of global Community Missions. The first of these community-wide challenges involves grabbing a number of dog tags in a certain time - should the masses prevail, everybody will unlock a Gold Battlepack.

Couple of notes on this:
- new battlepacks are available at 12 noon GMT every day
- you don't have to actually play anything to receive your battlepack - just navigate to the Battlepacks menu and there should be a new 'Calendar Battlepack' waiting for you to open

thanks should really start to get in to bf4

It's a shame the DMRs are for premium only, those are the only guns I haven't unlocked because they're pants :P

Hit level 109 last night... The extra battlepacks should come in handy this month for all of the other guns I rarely use. Been saving my golds since 100, so here's hoping I get some decent loot out of them after Feb!

Thanks for info. And if you don't know what battlepacks are, like I didn't

Gutted they're giving away the free shotgun shortcut pack, I only ever use shotguns and I thought it was quite an achievement to unlock them all and most the attachments + a few thousand kills with them.

Thanks for the info, i'd have missed this had you not posted! have some heat.

anyone on ps4? pm ur gamertag if interested.

great stuff luv the game but am useless at it so this may just giv me a boost

Getting free stuff that you paid for?

How many hours to get to Lev 109 ??

MK11 MOD is ok from a distance, although I now tend to use the ACE 52 CQB instead.
120 hours played - level 40. xbox360 tag = J9STL

Heated thanks for the heads up must remember to log in each day

Nice find! Would love to spend the extra cash and get the premium pack, but I've lost count how many times this game crashes on my ps3

I was even thinking of picking BF3 up again the other day as I was a premium member & lvl 100, now yes there was a few bugs/glitches in that just like any game.....but with BF4 it's just very frustrating.

Cheers for the post. Good to get full information from another bf4 fan. Heat added:-)

They just want the game to look busy to their investors, otherwise who would want to play this game which suffers from awful hit detection?

Level 6 FTW!

No idea how people are getting that high that quickly...

GotBass

On the pause menu in MP, there's a Boosts option. I think there's a single-button shortcut on the respawn menu as well (square on PS3/4)

I'd love to see your battlelog because the numbers you gave means, you have a SPM of 2800, which puts you in one of two territories, booster or liar.

And if you really did get that SPM legit, then you should consider giving up your day job and invest in a youtube channel because nobody is that good.

Let me tell you where on the leaderboards you'll be if you really have this high of a SPM:

PC:138
PS3: 27
Xbox 360: 6
xbox one: 7
PS4: 16

Care to share your battlelog?

you guys done this? its awesome

see you on the PC!

This is just a gesture to players for all the troubles the game has had since release.

DICE Details Next Battlefield 4 Tweaks
Devs outline the items they will and won't be balancing.

TV Missiles - Players have requested they become a one-hit kill on enemy aircraft. DICE disagrees.

Sniper Rifles - Players have requested these be upgraded to penetrate body armor at close range. DICE says body armor is designed to specifically counter those threats.

Long-range Scopes for DMRs - Players want them, but DICE says they would have a negative impact on gameplay.

Aircraft Counter Measures - Players have asked the reload for counter measures to be increased. DICE says it's a "tricky balance," but it likes the current reload times.

Attack Helicopter Maneuverability - Players would like increased maneuverability, but DICE says it recently tweaked attack copter weapons, and it wants to see if that solves the complaints first.

Got mine on the Xbone yesterday. It started at midday and had opened mine by 12:20, got 2, a players appreciation pack (2 boosts and a tag) received 12:09 and a silver battlepack received 12:19

got a battlepack now, but sound is not always there on some of the maps - a quick google suggests this is a known issue !!!

Sorry forgot about this thread. It has taken me just over 220 hours to hit 110, using XP boosts throughout (with almost 100 leftover to spare rofl).

Just finished completing the DMRs last night, didn't take too long and wasn't too much of a chore since the damage boost But I'm glad they're unlocked so I can go back to proper guns again :P
