Available as a preorder bonus at select retailers and EA's Origin service, the relatively unexciting Physical Warfare Pack gives us an excuse to look at more Battlefield 3, which is always good.

Folks that preorder Battlefield 3 at participating retailers will score early access to the DAO-12 semi-automatic shotgun, Type 88 Light Machine Gun, flechette ammo for the DAO-12, and a flash suppressor for the SKS sniper rifle. All of these will be available at no additional cost to all Battlefield 3 owners some time after release, but for a brief shining moment your opponents will know they just got killed by a preorder customer.
