What rewards are available today?
You can view a list of the active rewards by selecting the “Rewards” section on the Gun Club home page. We are always adding new rewards, so make sure you sign up for email alerts to get the latest update. We also offer rewards directly via email.

How will I know when there are new rewards available?
New rewards will be added to our home page as they become available. We also send updates detailing the latest rewards that you can receive by signing up for email alerts.

I meet the requirements for a reward, but the Gun Club site doesn’t recognize them. Why not?
In order for Gun Club to recognize your games and accomplishments you must be logged into the Gun Club site with the same account that you use to play them. You can check to see if your Gamertag or PSN ID is already associated with an EA account at the registration page. Please contact EA customer support for further assistance.

What are challenges?
Challenges are an opportunity for you to show off your shooter skills. They occur weekly and feature the hottest games of the moment. Accept a challenge and start playing immediately. Once you're done be sure to come back to the Gun Club site to check your status and complete the challenge. 

I qualify for a badge and/or reward, why haven't I received it yet?
Badges can take up to 15 minutes to process. Your badge(s) will unlock automatically and the status will be automatically updated in your profile. You will also be able to redeem rewards that require badges once they have been processed.

My friend is a Gun Club member, but I can't find them when searching for members.
Make sure that your friends' profile is public (this setting can be changed by editing your preferences from "My Profile"). Private profiles do not appear in search results.
