PlayStation 3 users can now download Battlefield 3's Physical Warfare pack free of charge, DICE has announced.

Previously only available as a pre-order extra, the pack includes instant access to the powerful DAO-12 shotgun for those who haven't unlocked it already, a custom flechette ammo for the DAO-12, a flash suppressor for the SKS sniper rifle, and the Type 88 Light Machine Gun.

PC and Xbox 360 patrons will be able to get hold of it "at a later date",according to a post on the official Battlefield blog.

The pack caused a fair bit of consternation when first announced as a pre-order incentive, with fans threatening a boycott on grounds that gave some players an unfair advantage.
