XP boosts

Postby Piers » Thu Dec 26, 2013 9:15 am

Just discovered that XP boosts have to be activated in the main menu - you have an hour of IN-GAME time to use the boost, so activate it and use it until it runs out, then activate another (open your battlepacks to get them)

The best thing about the boosts is they can be stacked with premium/2xp events so I'm going to wait until the 29/30/31 December event to use my 200% XP boost to effectively get a 600% boost.
Even the 25% boost I tested had me scoring at a ripper rate, so make sure you open all those battlepacks all the time.

Just opening the battlepack doesn't activate them? If not, then I must have a whole stack of them waiting.

The battlepacks are important, particularly the weapon ones as they have unlocks for those weapons that you can only get from its battlepacks

They work on game play time, not real world time. If you still had 15 minutes left when you left then there will still be 15 there when you start playing again. As far as I can tell, you can only activate one at a time anyway so you can't waste them all at once, only whichever one was active.

Good point - you should time the boost to just before the session where you are going to earn that 10,000 point medal or whatever.

I must admit despite my early skepticism I am enjoying BF4 - even more so than BF3 in many ways.

:) yes, i wis i was prescient...

i am enjoying it, too. perhaps the terrain/background is more interesting.
i feel there are a lot of maps designed for armour, more so than previously. or maybe i have not played enough of the other maps. i am trying to rack up points, etc. on Operation Locker...

I had a round where I scored 4940 BUT got a conquest start, several ribbons, and a few other sundries, with the 2XP weekend and a 200% boost on top, I received a 70770 boost bonus!

I had 2 200% boosts, both from random battlepacks - gold, I think.
