Battlefield 1 Battlepacks, Puzzles and Scraps Details
Battlepacks are making a return to Battlefield 1 – and EA have made quite a few exciting changes to them. This time, it’s all about great content and customization options in the form of weapon skins.
For Battlefield newbies, Battlepacks are in-game boxes containing items that you can use to customize and visually enhance your Battlefield 1 experience. Each Battlefield 1 Battlepack will contain at least 1 weapon skin, some packs may also include an additional melee puzzle piece or an XP booster. The Battlepacks are earned by simply playing the game. At the end of each match, a certain number of people who have stuck through the entire fight will earn a Battlepack and can then head to the menus to break it open.
This time around EA/DICE have focused on one type of Battlepack – simply “The Battlepack”. You can get all kinds of items in this Battlepack and rarer items are not limited to a higher value pack. There are two modified versions of The Battlepack – Enhanced and Superior Battlepacks – which guarantee you a weapon skin of a specific rarity level. You can only get these modified versions by spending the in-game currency called Scraps.
When you open “The Battlepack” you will always get one amazing looking weapon skin. These skins come in three different rarities – Special, Distinguished, and Legendary. You may also receive a rare bonus item – either an XP boost or a puzzle piece to a unique melee weapon. Collecting all puzzle pieces to a melee weapon (5 Required per weapon) will enable you to assemble it and bring it into the game.
On a regular basis EA will rotate the pools of Battlepack content, or revisions as they’re called in-game. With new revisions coming up, it’s a good idea to stay connected to the game to see what awesome items you can get a hold off. Before you open up a Battlepack, you will see a list of what skins the current revision contains, making you aware of whether a skin for your favorite weapon is contained in the pool of possible items.
So what about that Scraps we mentioned earlier?
Here’s how it works: when you receive a Weapon Skin or a Bonus Item that you don’t want you can salvage it for “Scraps”, a Battlefield in-game currency that can then be spent on new Battlepacks. Spending Scraps is the only way of getting hold of Enhanced and Superior Battlepacks as these do not drop as end game rewards. You might want to save up Scraps for an upcoming revision of Battlepacks containing a skin that you know you want.
Battlepack costs are as follows
The Battlepack = 200 Scraps
Enhanced Battlepack = 450 Scraps
Superior Battlepack = 900 Scraps
