For those looking forward to using the Bad Company 2 (BC2), and Battlefield 3 (BF3) weapons, you’ll be glad to know that both games’ weapon attachments have been spotted in the game’s files too!
Weapon Customization in #Battlefield Portal based on the Beta client:
✅ Attachments from BC2 and BF3 available
