Want free Specact DLC?
Thanks to Thelorn.
That's a rhetorical question, I know you do. This is just a thread with screenshots and stuff kind of like a tutorial.
*This is for all you people out there who want the Specact DLC to get the achievements but you don't want to fork over the money or don't have the money, do this while you can because there is no telling how much longer this trick will work, I'll give it maybe 1 week*
EDIT: It is still currently working [08/11/2011] Yikes.
**You apparently can't do this "trick" in the UK yet it has worked for some other forum goers from the UK**
***This is almost 100% guaranteed to work, if not, give it a second go with a different live chat agent***
One person is saying he got his rank reset after doing this, I doubt that very much, and if it were true then try this at your own risk.
The site has also changed in layout since a year ago.
The universal codes still work but not in the way you think they would. They may not work on the Dr. Pepper website anymore but you can actually get customer support to activate the codes for you over at EA.com...
1. You must have an EA.com account with a valid email address and basically a Gamertag.
2. After you have your EA account and all that good stuff go to http://www.ea.com/ and click on "Email Us" at the bottom of the page under the "Help" section
3. Fill out your information like this and then click on "Live Chat."
4. You should be put into a queue to talk to a support representative.
5. The rep will ask for your Gamertag and Email Address. After that you tell your support representative that your codes for the Specact DLC weapons do not work: ( CBEEAAA41NWH, CBEEAAAE98ZV, CBEEAAAE4L9N, CBEEAAAFQG9J )
6. After the chat the rep will activate your DLC for you and the next time you sign into Bad Company 2 you will receive 4 pop-ups telling you about them.
Here are the chat transcripts I had with someone to get mine activated for all you non-believers:
xD I didn't get the sniper so I had to start another chat to get it.

You dont need to do the live chat. u can also send them an email works the same.
Send them a message saying your Dr.pepper codes did not work.
Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.
In order to assist you further in this matter, please provide us the following information

Just wanted to say "THANKS" JUST DID THIS! Works. I even forgot to give them the codes! I didn't notice that they asked for the codes, right after asking for e-mail, D.O.B. etc.
They still hooked me up with all the DLC PACKS!

Everything seems to work, It was told me that my account is updated ... bla bla bla .... but still nothing new in the game. So I have a chat for a second time with the online helpdesk and unfortunately they answer to me :
Jeremy: I am sorry but the promotion of Dr.Pepper is region specific
Jeremy: And you can not download it in Europe
..... I am in europe.
However it was a great info, thank you TpYourHouse
Question : Once downloaded, Is the DLC linked to a gamertag or not ?
My idea is to create an US xboxlive account in order to download the DLC. Once I have it on my xbox I may acces it from my "official" gamertag.

Hmm, so the universal codes don't work anymore? Yes! Good thing I downloaded them, before it was glitchy for others, and then those achievement problems...
I'll show this to my mate!

I just did the chat thing and they said they ,made some changes to my account and I should have my engineer pack. That was the only one I was missing as I did have the other codes from dr pepper caps.
Thanks for the tip!

In the US you could buy Dr Pepper and use a code under the cap to trade for an item of DLC. There were four universal codes for some reason that could be used by anybody to unlock certain pieces of DLC, but manipulating some URLs would let people use it them on the BC2 DLC. The DLC was automatically tied to the player's EA account and unlocked in-game. This is what this topic is about, the EA support techs are just unlocking the DLC in your EA account.
In Europe, you guys never had this chance; you had to buy the DLC from the marketplace, and then it would act like normal DLC, it'd be a little key sitting on your hard drive that unlocks the items in the game. This feature was later released for America.
So there's nothing you can do in Europe; you aren't allowed to access the promotion to have the content unlocked on your EA account, and making an American account wouldn't let you transfer that information over in any form since it's not an actual downloadable file. If you made a US account, you'd just have to buy the DLC from the marketplace like you already have to do on your European account; you'd just be doing the same thing on an account that doesn't tie the DLC to your real profile...A complete waste of time and money.

Guys, it won't work if you're from the UK, they say they've assigned it to your account but it doesn't work, I've confirmed it with the support so anybody who isn't from the USA (and maybe Canada...) will have to fork out the money for it!
Gage: Please wait for a moment. [11:56:27 AM]
: would it have anything to do with me being from the UK? [12:09:04 PM]
Gage: Thank you for waiting. I really appreciate your patience. [12:10:06 PM]
Gage: Please may I know from where did you purchase the DLC ? [12:10:25 PM]
: a family member brought the dr pepper cans and emailed me the codes.[12:11:46 PM]
Gage: I would like to inform you that you need to purchase the DLC from Xbox market place. [12:13:43 PM]
: ok, is this because of my location then? [12:13:52 PM]
Gage: Yes. [12:16:09 PM]
EDIT: you're welcome to go ahead and try, you might get lucky or you might waste 20 minutes of your life...
