For its final few days in closed beta, EA has decided to unlock all weapons and gadgets available in Battlefield Hardline.

Unlocking everything will give PC and PS4 beta players the chance to wield any of the content currently gated by level, including the ballistic shied, breaching charge, and decoy gadgets.

According to a press release, EA and Visceral promise that all the weapons and gadgets featured in the beta "are just a taste of what fans can expect" when Battlefield Hardline launches on the PC, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 21.

Visceral has also deployed a PC patch that tackles some audio issues and improves netcode, one element in Battlefield Hardline that will assuredly be under much scrutiny considering the shaky past with online connectivity the franchise has become known for.

Originally scheduled to end earlier this month, EA extended the Battlefield Hardline PS4 and PC-exclusive closed beta to Thursday, June 26. A beta test for other platforms is expected later this year.
