Appearance debuted in Battlefield 3. It consists of different camouflages available to the player. It is somewhat similar to the SPECACT option of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and the customization of Battlefield Vietnam.

Soldier camouflages are unlocked through leveling up, completing assignments, or being a Premium member. These can be equipped by highlighting your kit and pressing Appearance option on PC (next to Customize), Triangle on PlayStation 3, or Y on Xbox 360. The different camouflage types have an effect on both visibility, and some effect on the player's perception through the IRNV scope.

  • Before the 1.04 patch, camouflages were only shown on the USMC class models. The only way to see what they looked like on the RGF classes was to browse them while in a multiplayer match on the RU team.
  • All Battlefield Premium camouflages do not share a similar pattern when changing teams, for example the Premium Camo 4 is a Navy Blue Digital Camo to camouflage against water and metal for the US side, whereas the RU side has a Woodland Stripe Camo which camouflages the player against woodland.
    • The premium camouflages for the US side are predominantly camouflaged against both desert and urban, while the premium camouflages for the RU side are predominantly camouflaged against woodland.
