Since there doesn't seem to be a complete FAQ covering everything, I decided to make one for those who have trouble using the search function. Note that most FAQ-topics are located in the 'newcomers' section.

I will try to include all the questions that are frequently asked, and update the posts. If there are any questions that you think should be in this FAQ, please let me know.

How do I start the game?
In the left upper corner of the website, there is a PLAY NOW button, click on it to download/update/start your game.

How do I create a hero?
In the right upper corner of the website, there is Create a hero button, click on it to create your hero.

How many heroes can I create?
You get 4 FREE hero slots. You can have up to 10 heroes in total. To get more heroes you need to buy slots for 140 Battlefunds each.

How do I delete my hero?
There is currently no option to delete a hero. Thus it is not possible to delete one.

Can I give my hero a different name?
Yes you can, for 990 Battlefunds you can change ONE hero’s name. Click here to do so.
The link is located at your player profile, in the same bar as your player name.

How do I play with my friends?
In order to play with your friends, you need to add them first. There are several ways to add them:
1. If your friend has posted in the forums, click on the little icon next to his/her name in the post.

2. Go to Player Search, listed under “Community” in the navigation bar on top, search for the player’s or hero’s name. Next to the player’s name, there is a little icon like mentioned above, click on it to send a request.
3. Found a player while in game and want to add him? Press TAB to bring up the scoreboard and double click on his/her name.

Now it’s not done yet, this is only HALF the process. All you've done is send a request, the other person has to accept the request before you can become friends. How is this done?
Go to your Friends list, located on top of the website.

People who requested to be your friend are located under “fans”. Click on the little icon next to their name to accept their request.
Now you can find each other in the game menu under ‘friends’.

There is a option to bookmark servers, so you can join it any time you want (as long as it's not full). To do so, there are 2 ways:
1. If you are playing on a server you like, hold TAB and press F5.
2. If you found a server you like to join on the forums or auto admin. There are specific links that allow you to bookmark them outside the game. Links to bookmark servers look like this: http://www.battlefieldheroes.com/en/bookmark/server:"...code..."

Dr.Pepper Promo


Question about Dr.Pepper promo?
Visit the Dr.Pepper FAQ by Cyblos here.

I can't redeem the Dr.Pepper code on BFH!
Currently the Dr.Pepper redeem function has been deactivated until further notice. Keep your eye on the Alerts.


I hear people saying only 1 Dr.Pepper code per account?
There is a number of 'special' codes, these are listed on banners and are non-unique. Which means anyone can use them. These are the codes that you may only use once. These codes are not found on bottle caps.
The codes you find on bottle caps may be used any time and can only be used by one person.

(each code can be used only once)


Gunclub offer


How do I get my free 700 BFs from Gunclub?
Right now the offer is unavailable, which means you can not redeem the free battlefunds.
Be sure to subscribe to their newsletter to participate in their future offers. Visit http://gunclub.ea.com/us, and log in with your EA account.

Game doesn't start
Make sure you are running the browser as administrator. (when opening the browser, right click, 'run as administrator')

How do I remove BFH?
