Report – Battlefield Hardline GameStop Pre-Order Bonus Is a Real Life Police Badge

MP1st - Looks like Battlefield fans making the trip to their local GameStop to pre-order Visceral Games’ upcoming Fall shooter get a free pass to enlist in their local law enforcement division.

Well, not quite. But if you pre-order Battlefield Hardline, you do get this nifty looking police badge replica. (Battlefield: Hardline, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Is that safe? I don't really want people running around with fake police badges

Last time I checked police badges were not smaller than a thumb

True, but just takes that one idiot/easily fooled person to make it become news.

I'm sure someone will put it next to their penis to impress women in cam-chat.

That's what I was thinking--just another reason for the media to pounce on anti-gaming bandwagon once someone uses it in a negative way.

I don't really see it as a big deal as people have used even cheaper fake badges to do the same stuff or just flat out bluffed their way saying they were a cop but stupidity reigns supreme so it won't necessarily help matters much either.

It is a cool replica though.

It's just a money clip.

It's a money clip in the firm of a badge. Headline is just for clicks.

its quite safe .. it looks like an american police badge, they have legal citizens running around with guns & wonder why people go on rampages, so a fake tiny badge is the least of there problems.

Its like a Bad Comedy skit. Want to Preorder BF: Hardline? Have a laugh with me then

Once I get that badge I'll be able to bring EA/DICE to justice for what they did to BF4!

I don't see it as a safety hazard, hell kids get to have their own police badges and toy guns. Plus like lawson72 said it does look quite small.

Yeah, this won't be abused....

Yes, probably 1000 people will do the following.

"How are you"
"I'm detective John Kimble"
"I'd like to ask you a bunch of questions and have them answered immediately"
"Such as, who is your daddy and what does he do?"

I called my local gamestop and they do have some left. Will probably go and preorder. I think it looks cool because nowadays when you preorder, it's only digital bonuses and never anything physical.

Or they could have given us a map-pack like they did with BF3...but whatever.
