Game related questions & ideas:

Hackers or Problem players?

Will there be skins?
Currently only the one pair of skins attained through early backing of the game are available (founder skins). This is subject to change.

Is there a ranking system?
There a NO plans for implementation of this. Join in on discussion 'Here'.

Custom kits?
Modular kit customization to some extent has been mention to be on the planning board (Meaning you will only be able to change some scopes, grips and maybe even decide whether you'd take 2 smokes and 1 nade or 1 smoke and 2 nades)
Join the discussion --> 'Here' and 'Weapons Thread'

What Factions?
As of Early Access there will be US Army, Russians, Insurgents and Militia (other factions will be added over time such as the British Army ) 'Here'

Special Forces?
There will be NO Special Forces built into the game tho when modding becomes available fill free to get creative, join the discussion --> 'Here'

No raised weapon as default?
Join the discussion --> 'Here'

Will there be bipods for weapons?
YES there will be, Join the discussion --> 'Here'

Night vision?
None at this stage. This, like many features, is subject to change during the development period.

Gore body parts?
There will be NO! gore added into this game but when modding becomes available fill free to get creative, join the discussion --> 'Here'

Will there be Bots?
NO! there will not be bots for the base game. With modding this could become a thing, join the discussion --> 'Here'

Will there be mods? Yes BUT modding is disallowed right now for one reason: We don't want to break your mods when we change things (which we do every day). Once we have official support, the gates will open and you guys will be able to go ham. Until then, don't do it or you are setting yourself up for pain.
Please view the discussions about mods 'Modded Factions' 'Modding Discussion' and 'Paid Mods'

What DLC will there be?
Its too early to say as we haven't even completed the game.

Can I host a server?
Find all information here:


Different / More Stances?
While we aren't going to be doing exactly it, Battlefield 4 has a fairly decent solution to this were you adjust yourself to a space (lean around corners, pop yourself up or down, etc) when you aim down sights. That's kind of the direction we want to go... It should just work and feel natural... not be a mess of keys you have to memorize for every little scenario, join the discussion --> 'Here' & 'Here'

3 Faction Battle (3 teams 1 map)?
There will be no 3 factions on one map built into the game tho when modding becomes available fill free to get creative, join the discussion --> 'Here'

Steam Sale or Play for Free?
We have no plans for this type of promotion in the first few months. at least.. thats our current plan, join the discussion --> 'Here'

Free Look / TrackIR & VR Support?
HOPEFULLY AT SOME POINT but not right now, Join the discussion --> 'Free Look / TrackIR & 'Virtual Reality'

Will there be US Marines or other factions?
"for a short period we decided (in secret) to switch to the US Marines instead of remodeling the US Army, but in light of recent development, we decided it was in our best interest time and money wise to stick with remodeling the US Army." Join the discussion --> 'Here'
The British Army is confirmed as of 7 Jan 2015.

Enemy Hearing Local VOIP?
This will NOT be happening within the base game, tho when modding becomes available fill free to get creative, join the discussion --> 'Here'

Voice Activation?
This will NOT be happening, join the discussion ---> 'Here'

This should be happening sooner rather then later, join the discussion ---> 'Here'

The Current textures / models are just place holders and are bound to change throughout development, join the discussion ---> 'Here'
