Battlefield 1 - Puzzle Pieces and Crafting Explained
Posted in battlefield 1
DICE have added a new crafting system in Battlefield 1 which appears under the familiar Battlepacks menu. Players can explore secret melee weapons that can later be unlocked and crafted in exchange for the right number of puzzle pieces.
Battlefield veterans will be well accustomed with Battlepacks from past games but with BF1, DICE have altered the theme slightly. Battlepacks now have the chance to drop "bonus items" which can include puzzle pieces. These are like little crafting ingredients to fully unlock new weapons that are otherwise unobtainable elsewhere.
Battlepacks are rewarded randomly following a match - so as long as you stay the course you will be in with a shout. There is also an exchange option which allows you to purchase additional Battlepacks in exchange for Scraps (in in-game currency).
Craftable melee weapons vary from week to week, with new ones added to the "pool" following weekly resets. You will always know which items are available because they'll appear under the puzzles menu option, and if you're particularly interested in a melee weapon then it's worth putting in the extra effort before the pool is reset and the melee goes back into the waiting list for a future reset pool.
