View Full Version : Update on Dr Pepper Promotion (DLC not out yet but still)

Updated 4/8: Ok there seems to be some confusion here and there as to what this promotion really is so I figured I would update this main page to give some specific details on the Dr Pepper DLC. As more questions come up I will try and update this to keep as much relevant info as possible.

What it is:
- A promotion with Dr. Pepper wherein by buying Dr. Pepper soda you can get codes from the bottles to use to unlock the DLC.
- The DLC is a pack of new skins for the last weapons unlocks in each class (M16, UMP, MG3, M95) as well as new skins for your player models.
- The new skins are cosmetic ONLY and have no known impact on performance.
- The DLC will come with 4 new achievements and 12 awards/insignias. What they are we don't know yet.

More details from the officla page on how it works:
- Purchase a participating bottle of Dr Pepper.
- Find an exclusive redemption code under the bottle cap.
- Go to: http://www.drpepper.com/promotions/ea to redeem the code and select from a wide range of game enhancements for Battlefield Heroes(TM), Battlefield: Bad Company(TM) 2, Mass Effect(TM) 2, Spore(TM) and The Sims(TM) 3 and others to be announced throughout the year. (Please note that as of now you CANNOT redeem codes for BC2)

What it is NOT:
- It is not part of the VIP codes program that DICE/EA put out with new copies of the game. The VIP codes give you access to maps and other content down the road and since this promotion is with Dr Pepper your VIP codes don't have any impact on this DLC. You either get codes from Dr Pepper or I am pretty certain you can buy the DLC with MS Points.
- It is not a map pack of any kind.
- It does not add any new guns to the game. New gun skins yes, but they are skins to guns already in the game. So if you are looking for new weapons, maybe in the future :)

Rumored Release Date: April 15th (Source: e-mail responses from Dr. Pepper telling people to check back to the site after April 15th)

Misc. Details:
- What if I live outside of the US? Technically this is a US only promotion, however some people are giving out codes for free. I'm sure there are threads on this forum so feel free to search for them :)

"The delay in kit upgrades DLC for Battlefield Bad Company 2 also affects the Dr Pepper promotion in North America. The kits are coming soon."

Also on the Dashboard there is an advertisement for the Dr Pepper promotion and Bad Company 2 is featured. So perhaps the DLC could be dropping anytime now?

Update:

Here is the Dr Pepper Twitter, they have updates now and then as well: http://twitter.com/DrPepper

Most recent update from Dr Pepper:

So sorry for the delay, we are working hard with EA to get our DLC up for BBC2. Will tweet an availability update asap.

There has been no official word on the release date. Your friend us guessing or worse making stuff up. As Ive said all along, when the achievements are updated online by xbox the DLC will come shortly after. Let's hope it's soon.

I wouldn't mind challenging ones like the 20 demo kills, for me it adds replay value. Although I can understand the annoyance it could bring. If they were anything like the knife 5 friends one (only really obnoxious one for me but one day a friend and I got on opposite teams and just hashed it out)

yeah but if you do have access to 4 codes(it is 4 right?)...you can only use 1 per account so you would have to make up 4 BS Dr Pepper Accounts..and that's a lot of pissing about for this

I would be happy if the achievements are as easy as the 20 demo kills lol. 35 demo kills and counting. The last 15 have come without even trying for them.

Agreed. After I got the achievement, I kept getting them, even when I wasn't trying.

Like when I threw a grenade at an enemy in Nelson Bay, and accidently blew down a house on top of 4 guys :D


Even funnier when I saw a guy collapse a house on 6 enemies, but instead of counting his kills as "Destruction 2.0", his kills counted as "Death". LOL, he was pissed.

I don't know why people keep saying this. I've used four codes on one account so far, and can easily use another four once the BC2 DLC is out. I have all the ME2 stuff, and some of the Battlefield Heroes stuff. As long as you have enough codes, you can use them all on one Dr Pepper account.

Ya I have 4 codes in reserve on my account and used 3 others on it already. I'm guessing these people are trying to reuse or use multiple freebie codes that DR. Pepper released, which are in fact 1 per account.

Your "brother" used it?Make him buy the VIP for you then or the maps if that's the case. No you shouldn't need to be a VIP, its a Dr. Pepper promotion. I would guess, not assume, that they would want as many gamers to buy their soda pop as possible. Good stuff actually.

Pepsi? To each their own. I like Coke better than Pepsi but only with a little captain in it. Maybe it's the captain that makes it good? My main vise is the Dew. But the wife wants me to cut back so I don't die early. I'm still thinking about it.

Can't buy VIP? That makes sense. You can still buy the maps and such.

Not sure about you, but i read that differently.

Battlefield coming to the WEBSITE in april, so to me that says they'll be updating the website then. As far as i know the DLC was only delayed till the end of March.

Do agree though, was very annoying to find out about the delay the day of release... after it had already been delayed multiple times already

You're thinking of the first time they delayed it (Dec 2009 to Jan ~15th, IIRC). Second time was day of release, no new date was given since they'd given two bad dates. I remember the day it dropped with no announcement.

I was in the Game Marketplace and saw "Bad Company 2 VIP" for 1200.
In the details it warns you to check if you have a VIP code in your box, so I guess you can buy that now for $15?

Nope, this is "new". Sorta. Had a friend claim he couldn't find and or didnt have the VIP code in his new copy of Bad Company so he bought his VIP code. This was on the 26th of March. I think he lost it but you never know.

I call BS. The codes come inside the SEALED game case. The only way to steal them would be to open all the new games.

It's funny how some people just want to be part of the story...

On topic: I hope Dr. Pepper has realized that EA is not a company you want to do business with. They screw things up and their promoters take the blame.

On topic: I hope Dr. Pepper has realized that EA is not a company you want to do business with. They screw things up and their promoters take the blame. As a person who has worked for Gamestop, they open new copies of the game, gut out the manuals, disks, codes, and seal them in a bag behind the counter before using the cases as a display model on the shelf. Which as wrongful as it is, they still sell the games they've opened at new price. Even worse, those opened copies are the "rental" copies, that employees are allowed to take home so they can become more familiar with the product for customer information. Never accept a opened copy of a game from them if you're paying new price.

It's entirely realistic that someone could steal the codes from the store.

The promotion was on the dashboard a few other times even like 3 weeks before the 18th when it was suppose to come out. But i havent seen it in a week hopefully now that its back up means its coming soon.

Only advantage would be it being cheaper than the actual DLC. Although i was under the impression that the codes were region specific? Could be wrong tho

Did some digging around this morning and found people saying this on the EA Forums:

So, I log in to DP's website, Go to "Learn More/Prizes" Click "Code History" And I get:



"We're sorry, Dr Pepper Game Flavor has ended. Please visit DrPepper.com and register to receive news and updates on more great promotions from Dr Pepper." Could be April Fool's but I honestly don't know.

Another thread going at the GameFAQS forums. Most interesting thing I saw was this:

This is from the bottom of the promo page:

"NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Please see code under the cap or inside packages of specially marked Dr Pepper products. Enter Codes/Get Rules/Free Code Info on DrPepper.com. Subject to full Official Rules. Void where prohibited. Ends 12/31/10. Request Free Codes by 12/31/10. Redeem by 1/31/2011."

I'm guessing the message about it being over is either transitional from ME2 to BC2 or it's an april fools joke.

Part of me wonders if there will be a title update when Squad Rush drops for everyone else (I think tomorrow) and perhaps they are waiting for the title update to update the game to be compatible with the new skins, that way they don't have to drop more than one title update (which I'm pretty sure costs money as you do more title updates with XBL).

It has looked like that since the promo began. They have had some artwork at times showing BC2 but it has never been mentioned on the prize page at all and is not mentioned in the FAQ about getting the content.

The assumption has been that the page and FAQ/Rules will be updated once the DLC drops.

Our Promotions Department is currently working on the resolving the issue. Unfortunately, we currently do not have an exact solid date for the Battlefield Bad Company 2 DLC to be available on our website.

But then again really, I'm gonna be playing this game for a while, it will be out when it's ready, I'm not looking to trade it in anytime soon. Besides... really has anyone ever done something like this before? I mean getting achievements via a merchandising promotion? Excluding dash of destruction, I'm talking about a retail game...

I wouldn't mind if they were the achievements but i dont want 50G for them all. I hope this game becomes part of the 1750 clan, and just keeps introducing more and more 15G achievements. They pissed me off on Halo 3 cos i hated the MP, but here I LOVE IT, lol, so the more the better no matter what they are. :p

I would love to have some odd numbered achievements like one for 33, 59 and another for 11. I hope the total is odd too, 173 maybe? I like odd numbers.

Plus it would be funny to read about the many gamers with their panties in a bunch over the uneven numbers and then of course we would hear more about the "achievement rules" being broken. But I doubt it will be that much fun, I'm guessing 25 points each. Boring.

ever play GRAW ? . . . thats why my GS occasionally ends in a 3 or 8 (they had some achievements worth 2/8/16/24/28/32/36 -- and then normal value ones)

Oh yeah, I have Graw. My gamerscore is all most always an odd number. Good fun. We'll just have to wait until the "new" release date to see what our gamerscore future holds. Still a blast to play with buddies regardless. Great game.
