Bad Company assaulted by DLC, free weapons, update

IGN reports a veritable cornucopia of news regarding Battlefield: Bad Company. The leaderboards have been expanded to include 500,000 players (up from 50,000), which should give more gamers a chance to see their names up in lights. Also, two of the campaign levels -- Acta Non Verba and Par For The Course -- are being retooled for multiplayer and will be available in an upcoming map pack (no word on when it will release or how much it will cost). Along with the map pack, an update is being prepared that should fix server and Dog Tag lag. Finally, and perhaps most interesting, codes are being given out to unlock three of the five (somewhat controversial) weapons that were only available to those who took part in the game's launch promotions. To unlock the different weapons, simply enter the codes below in the unlock section in Bad Company.
  • Recon Kit - QBU88 - your3mynextt4rget
  • Special Ops Kit - UZI - cov3r1ngthecorn3r
  • Support Kit - M60 - try4ndrunf0rcov3r
The remaining weapons can still be unlocked by checking your stats on the Bad Company website and joining the EA Veteran's Program.
