Battlefield 4 shortcut kits now available free for premium players

Battlefield 4 shortcut kits available now, find out how to get yours for free if you are a premium member

One of the biggest problems in Battlefield 4 is the pace at which different players rank up their weapons and unlock new ones. Each person unlocks weapons at different rates due to their skill level, time spent in each class, and even their campaign and challenge participation. EA and DICE have just released a new feature for Battlefield 4 that they hope will level the playing field for some players who are new or are falling behind.


Known as Shortcut Kits, these new packs allow players to purchase (free for premium players for a limited time) kits that fill out their Handgun, DMR, Grenade, and Shotgun kits by simply buying the pack from the in-game store. During February and the beginning of March, 4 shortcut packs will be available, and you can find out how to get yours below.

Battlefield 4 Premium members will get access to two special Shortcut Kits, on top of two other Shortcut Kits accessible to all Battlefield 4 owners. See below for the handout schedule.

February 18 to February 24

  • Shortcut Kit: Hand Guns
  • Battlefield 4 Premium Shortcut Kit: DMR's

February 25 to March 4

  • Shortcut Kit: Grenades
  • Battlefield 4 Premium Shortcut Kit: Shotguns
