Battlepacks Have Returned for the Better

In Battlefield Hardline you’ll see the return of Battlepacks. And we think you’ll enjoy the improvements we’ve made for you.

First a quick breakdown on the Battlepacks themselves. At various milestones in your career, like a Rank-Up, sizable amount of kills with a weapon, or even obtained with in-game Cash, you’ll be able to dig through your newly earned Battlepack for some fun and helpful items. Consider them your duffle bag full of goodies! Inside you can find both cosmetic items like Weapon Skins or emblems for use on Battlelog.com as well as useful items like XP Boosts and Weapon Attachment Vouchers. But those aren’t the only things you’ll find in a Battlepack – once you get your hands on a few you’ll see all the additional items we have in store for you.

Now, with that out of the way we can get down to our changes. Coming out of Battlefield 4 we really wanted to build upon the foundation that was put in place. After you all had started interacting with the system we listened to your feedback, looked at the data, and decided on some important changes. Here are a few examples:

Resellable Items – Have too many Gearhead Boosts in your inventory because you’re not much of a vehicle user? Sell those back for some in-game cash to put towards that new gun you wanted! With the addition to sell back items for a fraction of their value, we’ve given you the opportunity to get rid of unwanted items so that you can focus on the items more important to you as a player.

More Diverse Boosts – Speaking of Gearhead Boosts, we’ve introduced a more varied selection of XP Boosts so you can focus on the areas that work well with your playstyle. Perhaps you’re more of a Teamplayer or someone who likes to play the objective rather than go for kills; well we have Boosts for you!

Grindable Battlepacks – In order to give you some more options with your in-game progression, we’ve made the Battlepacks obtainable for in-game cash. This allows you to try for a few of those scopes you wanted in one shot rather than getting them individually. And on top of that, you may just get a nice bonus item in the process! This means as you keep spending time in Hardline, you’ll know that you can always keep trying for those rare melee weapons you’ve been dreaming about.

We hope you like the changes we made. And as a friendly reminder, in case you forgot, you should have a number of Battlepacks already waiting for you open depending on the retail edition you purchased. Check the below on when to expect more.
