Battlefield 4 players complete dog tag challenge

BF4 players have completed the very first community challenge, collecting 10 million dog tags in 6 days.

Battlefield 4 community challenge

One of the features of Battlefield 4 player appreciation month is a new community challenge. DICE challenged players to collect 10 million dog tags via knife kills in Battlefield 4 from February 5th to February 11th. Players completed the mission one day ahead of time, getting all 10 million dog tags.

And the price for all those who participated will be a gold Battlepack, which will be awarded on February 20th. Other parts of player appreciation month include a free bronze or silver Battlepack every day to all players, and free weapon unlocks such as handguns for all players.

While one can argue that the prize for the dog tag challenge is somewhat underwhelming (just a gold Battlepack), the challenge does bring the community together, working towards a common goal. Hopefully DICE will have more of these in the future, and perhaps with some better rewards (maybe weapon unlocks?).

Sharing is caring!

    Gold Battle Packs way too lame. When DICE gets a handle of the bugs, they should throw us some free extra maps. Too bad, I think EA pushed them to release to early, and now is yelling at them to fix up the game. What the Hey???? is that

      from what we saw about second assault dlc release date if think ea/dice are like screw it we can’t fix the game let’s just release everything & get done with it .

        Except that Second Assault DLC was released on xbox before the decision to stop the next ones. So let’s use the content, and pray for the next patches. Netcode has to be remade, that’s the key.

          Agreed, I’m getting sick of being taken out when the other player is still running around of a zero health percentage…

      What is with EVERYONE pissing all over EA? Not saying EA is the greatest company in the world, but when a developer screws up, everyone starts pointing fingers at EA. Why? because EVERY PROBLEM IN EVERY GAME PUBLISHED BY EA IS ABSOLUTELY EA’S FAULT. Pushing them to release early was not only mutually beneficial, but also agreed upon by BOTH PARTIES. This means DICE had agreed on releasing early so the game could sell better than its competitor, CoD Ghosts. Stop blaming EA for a game’s problems.

    Ok here is food for thought…. if you have all the weapon unlocks and your maxed out in leveling. what would you get in the crappy gold Battlepack??? i think a dev specific weapon or attachment would of been a better give away… anyone on the same page here? like the 4X scope for the 1911 was an ok give away but i think we should of gotten more of something like that again this time. it would of been more of a special thing to win, something we would of never gotten otherwise.

      i have them all except all the premium items that are not available yet. and it sucks so bad…..i can not be stuffed playing the game anymore and i have been playing without problems for some time now… my epic experience of playing BF4 with no lag/bad netcode is screwed because i can not be stuffed opening more battle packs that have 25% XP boosts in them.

      can they not make an option to stop getting all those stupid XP boosts? or atleast give me 50%XP boosts not the 25% XP boosts.

      but anyway….i have everything unlocked and i can not be stuffed playing until more maps come out (that have the levelution i paid for)

      i have been playing RUST a lot lately and i am finding that without the hackers, it is a really REALLY good game and only $20, unlike a broken game for about $60-$140

      i say that we should all go play other games that we enjoy (minecraft, RUST, DayZ, ect) and just forget about BF4 until it is some what playable. i feel so bad for those people (almost everyone) that can not play the game that they bought…….we should all join forces and stop this greedy EA, i love the Battle Field games but this is becoming more and more like they do not care about us and us not wanting to buy there games……who the hell is in charge of EA??? who ever it is, IS THE MOST STUPID SALES MAN I HAVE EVER HEARD OF!!! if i was going to sell a product that could be the best product of the year i would make sure it has the best release it can possibly have not a release that almost everyone that bought it would want their money back, and if it did i would make sure it was fixed and it would never happen again but how can a million dollar company say to there BEST product “she’ll be right mate” and just make everyone that bought it upset…….i bet COD players (the game that made EA push the release date in the first place) are laughing at us saying “so what is it like on the battlefield guys?” “nice graphics but did you buy the laggy edition with it?”

      i am finding myself sad when i think of all the people that wanted to play the BF series later on in 2020 but finding that it turned out worse than COD…

      PS: EA, BattleField players are loyal….. do not change that with your lust for money…..

    Seriously, 98% of my battlepacks have been those. Thankfully, I have been getting a lot of camos recently with getting weapon battle packs, but this is still ridiculous. I don’t want XP boosters or stupid soldier portraits. I want weapon attachments, camos, and knives!

    Something like one free map would have been nice…

    But you know… EA being EA… giving stuff to players that doesn’t require them putting money into it… and that the players would have earned themselves in time.

    A new scope for a weapon you haven’t unlocked yet~ an emblem for you even though most people don’t know what emblems are~ an XP boost for everyone even though BF4 is the easiest game to rank up on already~ ” I’ve played BF3 since 2011-to-2014 and I am already ranked higher in BF4 than BF3 and I’ve only had BF4 for 2 months and have a little over 500 hours in BF3″.

    And Weapon Skins~ yay.

    EA………… I know it’s the “popular thing” to hate you… but… you really aren’t giving us reasons to think otherwise.

    And DICE…. please test updates before releasing them. I am sick and tired of bugs, and I am sick and tired of waiting.

    I think in general the reward should be a special weapon and attachments for the players that participated. Also yes the game should be fixed. Give credit to the players dice/ea especially for the real ground pounders that has been with this franchise since day one. Stop listening to the noobs complaining about weapon damage or whatever they whine about this week and fix the game. If you have to create basic BETA servers for gamers to play so be it. We understand even if you have to close all servers to fix the problems we will understand. Stop worrying about money made. With s broken product you are losing more money than gaining. With a working product you get paid in appreciation.

    Was I supposed to for something to participate? Last few gold battlepacks were full of 25% xp boosts (50 of them left at rank 110) and after getting the last soldier portrait unlock I got three more! Ever so useful…

    China Rising is the last anything BF I will play. Not buying into their glichy bs anymore. Even tried playing Titanfall beta after getting a key last night and guess what no servers a bug was found so no one is playing that either. I love EA….well no more I have better things to do than to order a game that doesn’t work.
