Battlefield Heroes: Hardboiled Heroes, also referred to as Suits on the forums, is a themed update for Battlefield Heroes. The theme centers around secret agents and vigilantes. The update was released on August 15th, 2012, with a subsequent release on August 22nd, 2012.
Inside a noir themed, dimly lit room housing a poker game sits four figures working in secrecy, being Agent Cobb, Agent Eks, Jimmy the Bootlegger and Sam the Private Eye. Jimmy the Bootlegger transports pirate rum from south of the border to army personnel in the front lines every week, amassing a small fortune as a result. Sam the Private Eye was once a detective, but was framed for murder of his wife and subsequently forced to the fringes of society, and presently seeks revenge upon the original perpetrator. Agent Cobb is a hitman who eliminates high profile criminals with his prized Whisperer VK-22 rifle. Agent Eks is a mysterious figure, with no known employer or objective, but had appeared after the moon landing by both factions.
After obtaining a bad hand, Eks draws an alien pistol and points it at Sam. Eks fires, causing an explosion that severely damages the house they were in, with the force of the shot catapaulting Eks backwards on his chair, through the wall of the house and into a field. Eks then lowers his weapon, content at the violence he just committed.
Two weapons were released for the update, originally shown in the teaser trailer. Two more weapons were released on August 22nd, 2012, followed by two more afterwards.
