With a large variety of weapons and vehicles to choose from in Battlefield 4, you may not want to waste too much worrying about your weapon loadout in the middle of a session. With that in mind, DICE is going to allow players to remotely set their loadout presets for each of the game's individual classes with tomorrow's April 8 update.

Players can customize their loadouts however they please, filling slots for their assault, engineer, and support roles. Players can have two presets for each class's weapon kits and vehicles, with Battlefield Premium members getting four presets. Loadouts can be set either through the Battlelog website or through the iOS/Android Battlelog app. Loadout presets cannot be set or adjusted from the game itself.

The Battlefield blog adds, "The Loadout Presets are rolling out with the Battlelog update on April 8. We will continue to tweak and add functions to the feature, based on your feedback and comments."

Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      "Loadout presets cannot be set or adjusted from the game itself."

      Once again, I must slap my hand to my forehead. "HOW FLIPPIN' HARD WOULD IT BE TO LET YOU SET YOUR LOADOUTS VIA AN IN-GAME MENU, OUTSIDE OF A SESSION?!?" EA and DICE. Still doing things ass-backwards since 2013.

        I think you're confused as to what they mean by "Loadout preset".

      How about remembering my camo? BF3 couldn't do it, 4 can't do it either
