Soldier class loadout

Vehicle loadout

Customization in Battlefield 4 allows the customization of soldier and vehicle loadouts. Each kit contains a slot for primary and secondary weapons, two gadget slots, and one slot each for grenades, melee weapons, field upgrades, and camouflage. Soldier camouflage is also expanded from Battlefield 3. Players can now create Emblems that can be displayed on uniforms, weapons, vehicles, and killcards. Vehicle loadouts feature slots for primary and secondary weapons, countermeasures, field upgrades, and vehicle paint.

Primary weapons have five attachment slots while secondary weapons have three attachment slots. The five attachment slots for primary weapons are optics, accessories, barrel, underbarrel, and weapon paint. Attachments serve to improve the performance of a weapon such as reducing weapon recoil or the addition of a flashlight. By unlocking additional options through progression or Battlepacks, players may also customize dog tags and create Emblems that can be displayed on soldier uniforms, weapons, vehicles and killcards. Soldiers, weapons, and vehicles now feature a much wider variety of camouflage patterns.
