Battlefield 1 is a great World War 1 game that will truly challenge your gaming skills. You’ll take part in fierce battles, ranging from urban combat to frantic combats in the deserts of Arabia, you’ll join in epic multiplayer battles with up to 64 players, and you’ll become a weapon master.

Battlefield 1 is a very interesting game on both the Xbox One console and Windows PC, but there are still many elements that continue to puzzle gamers. Perhaps one of the biggest mystery in Battlefield 1 is the algorithm the game uses to drop battlepacks.

Gamers first begun to ask questions about battlepacks when they noticed there were major differences in the number of battlepacks they received. One player reports that he reached level 13 and hasn’t got a single battlepack whereas his friend is level 5 and received six already.

It appears that the only way to earn battlepacks is by having luck. Many gamers strongly believe that there is a lottery at the end of every match and only lucky players get a battlepack. Many players also confirmed that battlepacks are given more frequently in multiplayer mode.

My understanding is that they are randomly handed out, but there’s a multiplier given to you if you perform well in matches.
I got one for the first 9-10 levels, but after that, when I became more comfortable with the game and started appearing towards the top of lobbies, I’ve been getting them quite regularly.

Gamers asked EA to be more transparent about how the battledpacks are earned, but the company has yet to issue any comments on this situation. However, one Battlefield 1 fan recently posted a video on YouTube explaining how the battlepack system works. According to him, every two or three weeks, Battlefield 1 developers bring out a new battlepack system revision, with a new list of guns, weapons and skins. Since Battlefield 1 was only recently launched, the number of battlepacks available is limited so that early gamers cannot go ahead other people.

In other words, the number of battlepacks deployed is rather scarce during the first weeks following the game’s launch. For more information, you can watch the video below:
