Listen up Heroes!
Today we introduce a substantial new feature to expand on your combat experience in Battlefield Heroes... The Workbench.
The Workbench allows you to tweak your weapons, add bonuses, effects, secondary fire modes and more additional features to make your weapons as heroic as your own hero. Now, this is only the first phase of weapon customization and we have yet to include all of the tools for you to work with, but those are coming soon.
This first stage of the Workbench will allow you to add minor upgrades to your weapons to help you focus on where your weapons and play style excel. These won't be huge game changing upgrades but over time they will add up. You can increase things like your critical hit chance/damage, increase the effective range of your weapon, increase your magazine size and more.
This is all on top of your existing weapons so don't worry... you get to keep all of your existing arsenal and they have not be altered at all
The Weapon upgrade packs are no longer available for Valor Points.
Weapon Upgrades can however be obtained via the Claw.
