    “we must have MONEY”

  • Tweeder101 03.18.14 at 07:56

    This should have been automatically added to all premium members. Why give Premium members a time frame to download. Just another DICE mistake. Why no email to alert people about this.

  • manfamous71 03.17.14 at 15:18

    found the solution for xbox one folks on re-downloading the February player appreciation shortcut kits for DMR and handgun. on the xbox one home page, highlight the BF4 tile and select the ‘options’ button (button on right with 3 horizontal lines). select ‘manage game’. if you scroll to the right of your BF4 DLCs, you will see the shortcut kits. Highlight the kit and select the ‘A’ button to bring up the menu to reinstall shortcut kit! Happy Hunting!

  • raubersn 03.13.14 at 18:23

    I got the kits when playing in my PS3, but I lost all the unlocks when I’ve transfered my stats to my new PS4, and I just can´t find the kit to download on the PS4 store!

    Any help on this!?

    • BillyBowslinger 03.16.14 at 04:04

      I have the same issue, except on the Xbox One. I would like to get my kits back as well

  • Hotice919 03.05.14 at 04:44

    They have screwed over people by not stating that apparently they only use Greenwich Standard Time and not local time. That means, despite not mentioning it in the fine print and using an expanded time frame in their other promotions, you are out of luck. Nice job DICE, really bang up work there.

  • Octovio-1 03.05.14 at 01:02

    Dice/Origin, I have followed you instructions to claim my shortcuts for the Shotguns and the Grenades but they are not showing up in the In-Game Store. I did get the DMR and Pistol Shortcuts earlier but can not pull these two. I have also tried in the Sony Store. I use a PS3 console. Please help with my Customer Appreciation items.

    Thanks,
    Octovio

    • Octovio-1 03.05.14 at 01:04

      I notice the time the post is submitted is 3-5-14. It is 3-4-14 and only 6pm. I have been trying for the last hour. I hope you can still provide me with a code or something to get these two Shortcut Kits.

      Thanks

  • -1PARA-D0xi3 03.03.14 at 13:28

    Hi to all, im a Premium game player but i dont see the short cut to DMR or shotguns and i think my games faulty as all my clan have them but i do not or just cant find them, ive followed the instructions but my Premium game isnt showing me them as downloadable content for $0…

    Any help please?

  • KBxSTINGER 03.03.14 at 03:16

    im having the same problem with that error

  • DeeDubya3000 03.03.14 at 02:44

    I was able to download the first to pack without incident. The Grenade Shortcut and Shotgun Shortcuts give me the dreaded XBOX Live 80153003 error. Everything else I download from XBOX Live is fine… HELP!!!!

  • energizrmonky 03.01.14 at 23:44

    So… I guess having a life precludes you from getting the DMR and Handgun kit?

  • Schrado 02.28.14 at 09:34

    Everyone, The answer to all your questions is on this site.
    http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/news/view/shortcut-kits-now-live/
    Please just READ the article before assuming something is wrong.

    Hopefully this helps.

  • TheTruth72 02.27.14 at 04:39

    I have seen the grenade shortcut and the DMR shortcut, but never the pistol or shotgun shortcut. Why is this so? Why are there so many issues with these it seems from others’ comments? :/

  • WarReaper_1 02.27.14 at 00:31

    ….Also Dice/EA, in the future, with gifts like these, they should just appear in our weapons list and be available without having to go through hoops, click download buttons, go to EA Store to order it, just make it simple for us gamers, just add it to our inventory.

    • Coldpawn 03.02.14 at 22:50

      They didn’t because their are people who want to unlock them by earning them

  • WarReaper_1 02.27.14 at 00:28

    I just went in and got my Premium free kit of Shotguns but it didn’t give me the DAO-12 shotgun…why??????

    • TheStealthMuffin 02.28.14 at 02:34

      You have to EARN it. It’s not just handed to you

      • TooBubba4u 03.01.14 at 00:05

        Actually no, It should have unlocked the DAO, It didn’t. EA/Dice lied again.

        • Coldpawn 03.02.14 at 22:55

          The dao 12 was not included as an unlock as it is a dlc assignment. If you read the description on the download it will tell you what gun will unlock .

    • Schrado 02.28.14 at 09:27

      The DAO is an assignment unlock. The shortcut packs won’t unlock items that are associated with an assignment.

    • Coldpawn 03.02.14 at 22:47

      the kit only unlocks the base game shotguns. Dlc still have to be unlocked.

  • Gruug 02.26.14 at 18:08

    Premium member but missed the DMR shortcut. My fault, thought we would get a “notification” of some sort. I NOW see that I had to do it when made available during the week available. Humbly request you make it available again. Please. ;)

    • Gruug 02.26.14 at 18:11

      I should mention that ONLY the grenade shortcut was ever available during that week and the PREMIUM DMR shortcut NEVER appeared on the store.

      • Gruug 02.26.14 at 18:12

        Also see that the Shotgun short cut is also not appearing on the Store…..am I doing something wrong?

        • Schrado 02.28.14 at 09:32

          No offense, but what you are doing wrong is not reading the directions. The grenade and pistol shortcuts were/are available via origin store. The DMR and Shotgun kits for premium members were gifted via link in the Shortcut website. Please refer to the following.

          http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/news/view/shortcut-kits-now-live/

          The Shotgun kit is currently in effect till early March, and you have to click the button saying “Battlefield 4 Premium Giveaway.”

    • Pattmyn 02.27.14 at 01:25

      I agree with this. Same here!

  • ukkokalevala 02.26.14 at 11:24

    I am a Premium holder got hand grande but no shot guns I got Hand Guns But no DMR why has anybody got the same problem ?

  • SAiLO 02.26.14 at 08:59

    Shame I couldn’t even download it on PS4, despite going into the store!

  • xZenzic 02.26.14 at 02:14

    Well that’s hit, I was never informed that it was a download! I’m premium and had no idea I had to download the shortcut from the store and now i’ve missed the DMR’s! Great! ffs urgh why did I even bother with Premium.

    • Umbra_Lup 02.26.14 at 07:31

      Yeah, it is pretty dumb not to let people know about this stuff.

      • Umbra_Lup 02.26.14 at 07:32

        Then again, I guess if I payed one bit of attention to the battlelog, I might have seen it :p

    • Alopex2Lagopus 03.06.14 at 21:25

      Yea, I just found out about this today. I kept checking for information on the shortcut kits, but I did not run across anything until today…Talk about a day late and a dollar short. Im premium…My experience with the game so far has been off and on, but why put a deadline on a shortcut. It’s a gift to premium members. If you were premium in Feb ( I have been Premium since the game launched) the shortcuts should remain downloadable. Why put it out there and take it away so quickly. I feel like a carrot has been placed before me only to get ripped away before I can take it. Very under handed and I am very disappointed in the way this has been handled… Poor form…
