There's no question that DICE is known for its Easter eggs. We saw plenty in Battlefield 3, and have already found several in Battlefield 4. With the release of the China Rising expansion pack, you can add another to the list.
Perhaps the best Easter egg to date, this one isn't found in the game but rather on Battlelog. Premium members should head to the Assignment page, scroll down to Gold Assignments and choose the last one on the list, the Phantom Prospect.
There are two pieces of criteria to unlocking this assignment.
- Play as premium once
Anyone who has premium should have no trouble with the second option; it's the first that had people confused. Well, thanks to our good friend Crashrider, we now know what it means. If you click on the Leaderboards menu item and scroll to the bottom of the page, you'll notice a skull on the left hand side. Click this skull to display several lines of text. You'll be asked to enter a pass code. Making sure to use all lower case letters, type bumpinthenight and press enter. If the pass code is accepted, you'll be granted access to the Phantom Program. Take a look at our screen capture below.
It's worth noting that several people -- including us -- had trouble entering the pass code while using the Firefox browser. Try Google Chrome, it worked for us. Close that screen down, head back to the Assignment page and once again take a look at the Phantom Prospect. You've now unlocked it and can begin working on completing it.
There are three pieces of criteria to complete the Phantom Prospect assignment.
- Score 200 kills with Assault rifles
- Score 200 kills with Main Battle Tanks
- Get a 300 meter headshot
Once you're done, you'll unlock the Phantom Program Dog Tag.
Be sure to let us know in the comments, what Easter eggs have you found in Battlefield 4?
