Battlefield 4 player appreciation month in February

Players will get battlepacks every day in February, plus weapon shortcuts, and more.

Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation

DICE has announced a Battlefield 4 “player appreciation” month for the month of February. As a “thank you” from DICE to all Battlefield 4 players, the player appreciation month will include free Battlepacks, community missions, and more.

For the month of February, players will get a free bronze or silver Battlepack every day. All they have to do is to login to the game. Battlepacks include weapon unlocks, camouflage options, XP boosts, and more.

Furthermore, DICE will give players a shortcut bundle: all players will unlock all Battlefield 4 pistols and all grenades. Premium players will get two additional shortcuts: all DMRs and shotguns will be unlocked as well.

DICE will also be running a double XP weekend for all players in February. Finally, DICE will launch community missions, where players have to work together to reach a certain milestone in order to unlock a gold battlepack.

The final bit of news — and perhaps the best news — is that DICE is working hard to fix the netcode, which will be patched in an update released in February as well.

While all this is a great gesture, we’d still prefer patches instead of Battlepacks. Or maybe a free map or two as a token for all the trouble we’ve had to go through.

Sharing is caring!

    YAWN! More guns and Camo in a game I can’t launch… Seriously Dice? So much for being premium.

        How do you know it is something wrong with SAMMICH’s PC?
        BF4 is junk on every platform

        not just pc. PS4 as well. Server lag, random crashing. I also got 2 free copies with some video cards i bought. it works on one pc but will not open on the other. both exceed recommended requirements and the one its not working on is a fresh install of windows 7. so before blaming it on the persons pc, sammich isn’t the only one having a problem. your just lucky yours works steve.

    Hate this idea. Alls it does it take the fun out of earning these unlockables as they are now handed to me.

    This is almost as bad as the paid shortcuts in BF3 which really pissed me off.

      Yeah, I agree. All I can say is they better add a lot more content for me to unlock, cuz this will kill the fun for me.

      Well since it’s optional to take the shortcut how about you just don’t do it? Complainers these days it’s ridiculous how much people bitch and moan.

    When I say I frequently give up playing BF4 to play SIM CITY, then you know it’s bad.

    In fact it is safe to say, that BattleField 4 is the most unstable game I’ve ever bought. No other game has quite the same unforgivable crash-to-desktop-over-time ratio that BF4 has clocked in it’s short lifespan.

    Yet with all the apology XP doubling, I’m level 40 on BF4 after ONLY 70h, yet it took 358h to make level 78 on BF3. My K/D is lower on BF4 (0.6) than on BF3 (0.7) a SPM more than a hundred higher on BF4. So either the game is dumbed down, or I’m suddenly a one-man-army. I’m going with BF4 has been made too easy.

    EA don’t “appreciate” me enough for some money back, so frankly saying they’ll love me in the morning for the shortest month of the year isn’t exactly blowing up my skirt!

      Rofl, 1 man army with a .6 k/d. That’s helping the other team more than yours. Yes spm is up due to all the x/p boosts but that doesn’t make you any better.

        The only important ratio is the victory ratio. Unless you play in a death match.

          ^indeed… KDs are more usefull to chose a good player for DMs otherwise it is just useless … and WOW … 70h and only lv 40?? One Man Army? i dont think so dude. The game might indeed be easier to level up, due to battlespacks/exp boosts/Double EXP events(some for non-Premium as ocurred in november ^^) but there are things other than just LEVEL, the “skill” system and Win/Lose ratio are way more usefull to measure a player! 🙂
          And I agree with many… what makes the game fun is the fact that you need to actually use a certain type of weapon to unlock the next ones… the Dice event seems useful only to those who dont ever use, or rather rarely do…
          but other than unlocking through points .. I like the special ones unlocked through assignments… ribbons, etc… so the “insta-unlock”* by DICE is not so useless for many… and dont actually end the fun for them either 🙂

        … just like a CoD player to bash anothers K/D! As if that were the most important stat of the game?! Seriously, you need to re-think your position on BF4! The most important stat in Battlefield is SPM! The higher the SPM, the more beneficial to the TEAM regardless of 2x X/P.
        Of course, stat whores wouldn’t know anything about TEAM play, only a high K/D! Your probably one of those who run Assault and not even try to pick up a fallen player because you have to get the KILLS! Go back to CoD and WHORE away!

    I just needed to give a guy around 7 shots (most to head and upper body area) with a DMR rifle before he would die. Not only that, i did not even show up on the server listing… (PC).

      Play a “Hardcore” game type. Kill people easier. And get a better PC if yours can’t run it.

    ***NpNs Official Statement***

    The thing is, this is so transparently aimed at those who stopped playing.

    It want’s to give them more stuff so they don’t feel so disadvantaged and distant from the unlocks people who kept playing have.

    The thinking would be, we want to reannounce the DLC. We want to encourage people to come back and play and hopefully sell more. People won’t come back and play if they remember the game being completely broken and everyone has better kits.

    The problem is, the core game is still really laggy.

    just what we all need…….

    some little kid that his mother bought BF4 for his birthday is now getting all the noob weapons…… has no skill but will now have all the RGO, and MINI grenades that he wants and he doesn’t have to do anything to get all the pistols…..

    get ready people…… the noobs are coming back to BF4 and are going to make the game even more SHIT!!!

    i am already level 110 and i have unlocked all the weapons so far and i unlocked all the pistols and grenades within the first week but now everyone is going to get them for free????

    i do not mind giving those poor people that love Battlefield the weapons that they would have by now if it weren’t for all the crashes and bugs but to give all those children from COD all the OP weapons(DMR’s are getting a buff)for free is just playing it stupid……

    but i guess i can’t talk……i am going to get more kills than ever now with all these noobs coming online 🙂

    You know what would be a nice gesture?

    The next DLC for free for *EVERYBODY* who bought and played the game before a certain date (aka the “beta testers”) regardless of if they bought premium.

    Yes I was one of those lucky beta testers. One day it crashed to desktop 6 out of 7 matches, I regretted buying it that day…

    I love how dice gets smacked because EA pushed the game out early. So, give useful suggestions you pricks and direct your anger at EA.

    All the people that complain are up at 4 am just to find out what they got in their battlepacks. I’ve only gotten battle log emblems camos and mabye 2 attachments. So chill out and if you don’t want them don’t open them easy enough.
