God I love EA all of a sudden. Usually I hate them, especially their NBA Live games. The 2K ones are better. At any rate whether its Dev's, DICE or EA who ever deserves the credit for putting out Achievement earning DLC in a game within 2.5 weeks of the game coming out needs to be rewarded with my $5-10

I hope the upgrades though arent 800 M$ points each, Its just for a new uniform and a camo for a gun so it can't be that expensive.

Is this free if you have VIP or is that just the upcoming maps?

The maps are the only free thing you get for VIP, unless EA wants to be nice and gives it to the VIPs for free.

Free if you use the Dr Pepper promotional codes.

Don't know how they'll do it outside the US though. Can't really make achievments avaliable in specific regions.

Don't worry, you can always make an account on the Dr Pepper website and register the codes. There are only four and they're all the same.

There'll be a thread on here somewhere.

Check the Bad Company 2 store.

Click on the DLC for the 18th. The description says each DLC pack brings one new achievement, a gun and a new camo skin, also says they are tied to/part of the DR. Pepper promotion that so many are asking about. If you click on the DLC bundle, it too goes into a bit of detail, talking about 12 new awards and the 4 achievements. One per class and 3 awards per class? You can "win" them with a code from Dr. Pepper. 4 codes for 4 class DLC's? That's less than 5 bills.

No word on what the achievements are but it looks like we are getting 4 of them. This might be the paid content the devs were are talking about right before launch that so many were crying about.

Even though the Dr. Pepper DLC is listed as Exclusive:(Shout out to my Lawyer buddy!!!!:), we should be able to buy them, or just get your wife to drink some Diet Dr. Pepper for you. Another guy posted an email response from Dr. Pepper saying that you can actually unlock the codes on the 19th, so thursday or friday.

There's camo for 4 weapons too, 3 specific to different classes, 1 can be used with all. My guess it will be something like a gold star for each of the weapons.
I'm betting on something lame so I can be excited if it's not lame, and not let down if it is.

You don't actually have to drink it... I like it though so I'm good.

Yeah, I emailed them on the 8th when it didn't get put up. Took them several days, but they emailed me back saying the 19th.
Since it releases on the 18th on LIVE, I'm hoping the support email I got was wrong, and we can get them on the 18th.
I'm gonna try on the 18th and see what happens.

I'm not typing them all out, since everyone is capable of looking at the descriptions in the store, but:

Assault Upgrade:
"The pack also includes 3 new awards and one Achievement."
Look at the end of the second paragraph when you bring up the detailed info.

Actually, it says this on all 4, so it is one achievement per class.

I was wrong in my last post, I thought one of the things was for the G3, it's the MG3.

As for what the achievements are exactly... my guess is gold star with each of the final weapons, which sucks. I don't really like any of them. They ruined the UMP, I've never liked the MG3, never been a fan of the M16, and I don't like sniping, I only do it on the island map.

That is true, and I'd agree with you, but with the horrendous servers I'm happy it was easier this time. I just don't have the patience to deal with EA/DICE's garbage anymore. Three strikes and they're out for me (BFBC, 1943, BFBC2).
It's a shame, such great potential, ruined by greed (refusal to put up enough servers) and arrogance (DICE has proven time and time again they are not capable of writing properly working net/server code, yet they wont hire someone that is capable).

03-16-2010, 06:20 PM
what happens if you have the gold star on them weapons already? i doubt DICE are smart enough to make the achievements retroactive,they can't even fix the bf1943 veteran status :P...so i doubt it'll be that,maybe just 10 kills each or some shit like that

The gold star is just a guess on my part, a lame one at that. I'm hoping if I don't set my expectations too high, I wont be let down and may be surprised.

IF this is what the achievements ended up being, I'm sure DICE would botch making the achievement retro. I just unlocked these weapons yesterday and today, I'm not using them at all until I know what the achievements are.
The way DICE is, if my lame guess is right, and you already have a gold star, your achievement will glitch and never unlock. I'm not taking any chances.

Isn't it amazing how long DICE has been doing this, EA too, and they still can't get things right? How hard is it to make a properly working website? Bungie, Epic, and I'm sure many others have been able to do it, why can't DICE? The only reason I can think of is they just don't care.

If you couldn't tell, I'm a little fed up with DICE and their garbage servers.

Very good point, I didn't even think of that.
The way the ad on the in-game store is worded makes this sound even more credible.
It says something like "a personalized <insert weapon name here> for you".

Yes you can see that there is space for 4 new main weapons (one for each class). The DLC comes with 12 new awards. However, there is space for 16 pins, a ton of insignias and plenty of space for more attachments (BF version of perks). I am excited to see what they are adding.

I have to admit I dont really like the last unlocks either, but I have yet to get the UMP and MG3.
The M16 is meh, it doesnt feel as strong as the one before it, and the M95 take to long to load the next shot, its not worth it if I'm only going for headshots.

If you use a sight that has nubs or lines, on the cross-hair lines, it makes things much easier, you can line those up with the enemy for a reference.
When you shoot at one with a bolt action, stay scoped in until you see where the bullet lands. This will also give you an idea of how far above the person to aim.
I got one the other day from the Attacker's spawn on Arica Harbor all the way to the guard tower in the back of the back of the Defender's first base. Had to aim insanely high, but got a 384 point Marksmen Headshot Bonus.
That distance is probably close to the entire length of Nelson Bay, maybe not quite as far, but close.

I'm also surprised. Isn't everything added to the marketplace on Wednesday? That obviously doesn't mean it has to be released on Wednesday, but I thought they only did one update a week for content.
As I said, they wouldn't have to release the content, but the achievements, I thought, would have been added to the list, just not obtainable yet. Them not being added today make me worry about them. Many times DLC achievements have gotten screwed up because MS doesn't update them/activate them/whatever they do to them on time. Then if you unlock one, it wont add to your GS and you'll have to recover your profile and unlock it again, when MS fixes the problem.
This better not happen with these achievements, but I have a feeling it just might.

Wrong. They are not Snipers, they are using the RECON Class. They might use shotguns or the M14, so they can have C4. Or they might just run and use their pistol close range. (: But yeah, if they do snipe just change your class and go kill them. I snipe on 3 maps, that's all.

There is a youtube video called how not to be a noob at BFBC2 and it says they are recon class not snipers. When I was levelling up Recon class my main weapons of choice were the 870, Thompson, mortar and not a weapon but the motion mine.

Yes on some maps snipers are useful provided they are not just boosting their K/D ratio but either defending the crates or defending a set charge. But it is so frustrating when defending and a charge is set that all the snipers (often 8) stay on the sniping tower sniping at the attacking spawn and you have 4 assault guys on the ground dealing with the 11 enemies that got through the sniper defence.

I worry aswell mate :/ and EA is involved aswell so you know, i just hope all goes well tomorrow.
I guess our worries were not paranoia.
EA/DICE have said nothing about the delay, not on their blog, forum, or twitter. This is not how you run a company, you must at least communicate when there's problems. Knowing DICE though, they'll lie through their teeth about it, saying they never said the 18th and neither did the store.

There are many examples of DICE flat out lying, that's DICE, not EA, but DICE, flat out laying about problems and game features, this will just be another one to add to the list, if they take their normal course of action.

Well.. they are new maps. I doubt that Laguna Presa will look much similar in Rush if you think of how the game mode is set out. Either that or it will have as many bases as Nelson Bay spread over the exact same conquest version.

Either way, it is an arguable point which quite frankly.. isn't the biggest thing here. :)

everything i've seen about this DLC has said..

for the maps - 3-18-10 but just recently changed to 3-30-10 "I'm not sure why they changed it.."

for the other DLC as in "The camo's/4 achievements" when i first got the game, i noticed on the store thingy it said 4-1-10 but now if you look at it, it doesnt even have a date on it.. so They obviously can change it "on the fly i guess you could say" and therefore leaving us happy customers out in the dark once again.

but yeah i guess we can only keep checking back and hoping someone hears something..

lots of dlc gets delays. why does it have to directly be EAs fault? could be DICE, could be Microsoft! you know the servers had loads 4 times the peak load of any other battlefield game? they have had a lot to do so you can enjoy the game with few problems.

if they didn't care, you would still have problems with servers and other things.
a delay does not mean weeks of waiting.

the maps were changed from 4-1-10 to 3-30-10. nobody ever said maps come out on the 18th.

Incorrect. The SPECACT kit was to be released today but is now blank ( much like it's future ) and the Map Pack 2 was bought forward from 1st April to 30th March because they do not want to lose players to MW2.

they JUST fixed the ps3 store and you would assume something that is done *you could have seen pics of it 2 weeks or so prior to release exact date is a bit fuzzy for me but i am sure it was there prior to the release* they add very little to the game IE their a skin and a costume change... the fact its been this long and it got delayed it makes me strongly dislike them

Just saying, but the official Twitter says that it has to work with its partners, which means that there is a problem either on Dr. Pepper or Micro$oft's end. Usually, games get updated with new achievements long before the DLC even comes out, remember what happened with Halo 3 way back before any of the Mythic Map Packs came out? So, the achievements probably haven't been certified by Micro$oft yet.

the only thing i find annoying about the whole situation is how Dr. Pepper makes zero mention of the promotion on their website.

now, i'm not perfect-- it's possible that for all the looking i've done, i've simply missed it.

but their '2010 Dr. Pepper EA Games Every Bottle/Cup Wins' promotions page references Battlefield Heroes, Mass Effect 2, The Sims 3, Spore... and that's it.

They're not new maps, jesus christ some people are fucking thick on this forum.

Laguna Presa is currently available in Conquest and Arica Harbor is in Rush. All DICE have done is to spend a day, max, on changing the spawns on each map and adding MCOM stations / flag points and they have the balls to call it a 'Map Pack'. It should be called a 'Gamemode Pack'.

Sure, I'm kind of disappointed by the lack of DLC today as well (though, admittedly, I wasn't really aware of it until seeing this thread today), but you ought to just be a little more patient. Stuff like this happens - I know it seems to happen a lot more with certain people because some people in this world just take a really long time to learn a lesson - so let's all just deal with it.

There are so many other items of entertainment out there that can tide us over while we wait a little longer.

I'm pretty sure most of us on this site aren't rich and rent a lot to pound through games, pre-order specials are our enemy! Too bad EA exclusivly owns a lot of titles and licenses (NFL).

You obviously do not understand sarcastically veiled praise... I've read every comment in this thread and know what's going on. I was commenting on how you indeed called it a gamemode pack because that is what it is, while other people in this world may slip up in a conversation and refer to something like this as a map pack [out of habit] even though their stance on it is that it is a gamemode pack.

Also, before you are rude how 'bout you finish reading my damn comment, such as the portion that says blatantly that I agree with your stance as well. No once do I have the words "you're wrong" typed in my comment.

Just being a sarcastic asshole.

Nothing in terms of modes and map availability is changing; DICE is just taking two preexisting maps, adding a game mode to them, calling them a "map pack," delaying the camo/gun skins DLC that this thread is actually concerned with, and generally causing havoc across the gamer forums.

I would dig it if you could start over the amount of kills on the gun so you could get more experience for using the gun by getting the stars. But that is a totally logical reason for that extra gun slot.

I haven't heard anything on the M$ points will unlock it or not. I don't see why they wouldn't. They'd bank even more than they would with the Dr. Pepper promo I bet... Not really, I can see Dr. Pepper really paying out the ass for that big of a contract.

Yeah...that is true... I can't imagine the cost of an in-game advertisement, let alone something this big.

What is this Dr Pepper map pack?

All i know is that there is gonna be a map pack out (Arica Harbor can be played in Conquest and Acama Desert can played in Rush) and that there will be new gun thingys out (with cheevos).
The map pack is coming out April 1st.
And that the cheevo thingy will be released on March 30th to challenge COD. (Apprently)


My mate said that the DLC with achievements are gonna be 320MSP and free for Limited Edition users, is this true?

Everything you said is wrong.

1. There is no Dr Pepper map pack.
2. The map pack and the guns are separate.
3. The map pack is coming out March 30th, not April 1st.
4. The Dr Pepper camouflage packs have been delayed. No known release date.
5. The Dr Pepper DLC is the one with the achievements, not the map pack.
6. The map pack is free for people who bought the game new. There is no announced price for others.
7. The Dr Pepper DLC requires you to buy Dr Pepper (in the US) or there may end up being a MS point purchase for it as well.

That explains so much! Thank you.
