Those who a part of GameStop’s power-up reward program have something to look forward to if you plan on purchasing Battlefield 4 this fall.

    Wow tribute to CoD Ghosts GameStop pre-order offering BO2 “Ghosts” camo heh?

    Shortcut kits rob you of the joy of unlocking accessories and there will be no future service stars for anything that’s unlocked via shortcut kit.

    Which means if I haven’t unlocked those accessories, I won’t use it even if they give this to me for free. (And I have already unlocked)

      are you perhaps masonmei?

      • AtheistMason

        Yes, I changed my name and avatar :D

        • Jason Davis

          OMG, I knew it! Atheist + Mason = Free Mason! Hurry to the Masonic Lodge to… do… Masonic Stuff?! ;)

          • AtheistMason

            That’s a … well nice story. But Mason is my name :-) Masonic stuffs sounds cool, but I’d rather be a mason for a conventional safe life lol.

            • Jason Davis

              lol, just kiddin wit ya bud.

  • Tyler Dominick

    Ok.. ok… I must say that as much as i have played, I plan to never master the jets… so for me this unlock is welcome, but i will not really use. This is just more wood to the fire that is burning in my loins for BF4….. the 10th can not come soon enough.

    • pot51e

      Wood – burning – loins…..you know that BF’s immersive experience does not yet include blow jobs, yes?

    I don’t think so

  • Kyle Jackson

    This is right up the alley of (most) of today’s generation. Oooh, give me the quick fix, the short cut, the easy route. Earn it, if you’re not very good at something, practice. The feeling at the end of anything you put time into, cannot be replicated with anything that can be bought, or just given to you. p.s. I suck at jets too.

    • AtheistMason

      I totally agree! Well it was quite a journey from IR Flares to ECM Jammer, yet when I finally saw that service star that joy and sense of achievement were not comparable by any other means. I suffered a great K/D (dropped like 0.1) and SPM loss (somewhat 50) but in the meantime learning to control jets. Can’t imagine how bored the shortcut buyers must be. Games are designed for fun, and unlocking everything when you first hit a certain game makes quite a part of joy on offer. Now we use money to rob the joy! Strange world.

      • Jason Davis

        I hate shortcut kits in Multiplayer games!

        • 3RDRANGER

          True dat!

          There are much better things to spend your money on than shortcuts. You can just get the items for free and have fun at the same time.

    It would be nice if gaming web sights wouldn’t publicize this crap. I doubt it would matter though..

    • Raymond Featherston

      Why shouldn’t they, it is something happening that people would be interested to hear (for good or bad), they are simply doing the journalistic job and that job is to report any news that relates to the topic of the site (this does as it is MP news).

      • Asmitty56

        I get that it’s job. It’s just that features like this in games are tasteless and shouldn’t get any publicity. It’s not the writer’s fault of course.

  • That guy you might know

    I’m somewhat tempted, I’m playing right now and for the past few days I’ve been playing Conquest on Capsian Border.

    But im having fun actually working on it, except when those shit buckets completely destroy you in seconds.

  • ButteredBread

    “Sadly, this offer is only valid for limited time” should be “Sadly this offer is offered”! Great, so the Battlefield will be unbalanced on the first day just because GameStop want’s the profit………………..Boycott GameStop!

    • Raymond Featherston

      The unlock is for Battlefield 3, not BF4. So no it will not it not be unbalanced on the 1st day. Now before you say something else dumb I shall repeat THE PACK IS NOT FOR BF4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Asmitty56

        ahh good to know

      • ButteredBread

        Wow, you really need to learn some manners loser! All you had to say was this was for BF3 but you have to go off on some tangent like a 4 yr old. I hope you like working a McDonald’s the rest of your life since you aren’t familiar on how to communicate with people properly. Did you run out of your prescription for ritalin?

        • Raymond Featherston

          Trolololo P.S Tell ‘em why your mad son. P.P.S I communicate well with people, I just have a strong distaste for stupid comments, and seeing as how the article (and the title) stated several times that the pack was for BF3 it shows that you did not even read the article and yet still decided to post a comment or you lack some common sense and therefor makes your comment the eyesore of the comment section.

          • ButteredBread

            LOL, get a life bud……..BTW your girlfriends fat and ugly. Did you meet her at the pig roast at your local trailer park.

            • Raymond Featherston

              Wow so mature you have to rely on personal insults because you have nothing to logically defend your reasoning for posting a comment without reading the article. Also not my girlfriend, just a regular friend that I happened to take a picture with. The fact here is that you are getting out argued by a 15 year old. P.S the #1 rule of an argument is to never use personal insults as it shows the lack of confidence you have in your logic, and just plain makes you look bad. *Lol *girlfriend is

            • ButteredBread

              LOL, …….figures that you would take a picture with her so you don’t look like a loser without a girlfriend. P.S…why do you use P.S. and P.P.S when you could just start a new sentence? P.P.P.P.P.P.S…….#1 rule is to take your ritalin before commenting on an anonymous comment so you don’t look like a 4 yr old psycho spaz who doesn’t even know enough about life to think that because someone is wrong about something in a comment it gives them the right to spaz out and call them dumb. It’s sad that you get off on commenting on so called “stupid” comments, why don’t you get a life instead of acting like another internet retard. The internet wasn’t made for you personally so if you see a “stupid” comment then politely correct them then they will say “oh yeah didn’t see that”. Grow up! People like you are what’s wrong with the Internet, if you were in front of me IRL you would not have commented like you did to my face…trust me.

            • Raymond Featherston

              Oh look at the big man threatening a kid, whoa so tough. You say I am what is wrong with the internet, and yet here you are calling a kid names like your 12, and then going on to passive aggressively threaten a kid. If a grown man making threats to a kid over the internet is not the thing that is wrong here, then we have two different definitions of wrong. Also I never called you stupid, I stated your comment was stupid (those are two different things). However you make direct insults to me which not only weakens your argument but makes you seem immature.

            • ButteredBread

              Calling somebody’s comment stupid is pretty much calling the person stupid. What planet are you living on where this isn’t true. Ritalin boy! How is telling you that you wouldn’t call me stupid to my face a threat? It’s a fact Ritalin boy. lol silly little Ritalin boy.

            • Raymond Featherston

              Somebody can say something stupid, and another can point that stupid thing out without calling the person stupid. EX: A really smart person could say something that is in every way stupid, and just because another person pointed the stupid statement out does not mean they were calling the person stupid. It was simply pointing out that the one particular statement was in fact stupid as the article did say it was for BF3 roughly 3-5 times, so the fact that you clearly did not read the article and then posted that comment does in fact make that comment stupid, but does not necessarily make you stupid. And yes you saying “you would not do that to my face” is a passive aggressive (or indirect) threat. You maintain that you are right but never provide any solid logic as to why you are right, you only use personal insults which if anything hurt your case.

            • ButteredBread

              OMG you’re hilariously psycho dude! Take a couple of deep breaths fill up a glass of water, open your bottle of ritalin, take 2 of them in your hand, put them in your mouth, take a sip of water.

            • Raymond Featherston

              Tis funny to speak to an illogical person trying to belong in a logical world. Get something to back yourself up other than poorly based insults. Seeing as how it is fact that I am not on Ritalin, that makes even your personal insults invalid. Now I talk to people like you for the kicks and the practice for my up coming debate tournaments, although I wish I could get an opponent that actually knows how to argue (you clearly do not).

            • ButteredBread

              If you’re not on it you should be……see a doctor (I’m being serious), normal people don’t act psycho like you’re acting right now. You’re young so maybe you don’t see it yet. YeeHaw, you go Ritalin boy………..YeeHaw!

            • Raymond Featherston

              Psycho? I make a constructive argument after correcting an obviously stupid comment and I’m psycho. Hmm maybe I do not need Ritalin I just need to stoop to fit your low intelligence. By your logic intelligence=psycho, I’d rather be “psycho” than be stupid.

            • ButteredBread

              Yeehaw ‘dere Ritalin boy……… you go ‘dere Ritalin boy!

            • Raymond Featherston

              *Shakes head* where should I begin with correcting that horrid grammar. How did you ever pass English class? (I realize your trolling, but I am enjoying your dull wits to much to stop. I actually find this quite funny.)

            • ButteredBread

              Yeehaw ‘dere Ritalin boy…….. you go ‘dere Ritalin boy!

            • REDDIT

              *You’re

              I wouldn’t correct people on grammar if you can’t get yours straight to begin with. Oh and you’re both wrong and right, you two are basically arguing about nothing.

            • rxl209

              he has a point, she is fat and ugly

  • WarBro

    LMAO, you can service star an aircraft in an evening. Sounds like this is targeted toward the CoD console kids with mommies credit card that want elite lewtz nao nao nao

    • TimeVictim

      CoD doesn’t let you buy anything outside of Maps and Weapon skins. Battlefield and all other EA shooters have had these shortcut packs for years. Troll harder.

      • http://www.facebook.com/datkidfromawendaw Clay Johnson

        Didn’t Bad Company 2 started it? I can’t recall Battlefield doing this before

        • TimeVictim

          I don’t remember which one started it. I never bought them. I think it was BC2 though.
