How to view dlc key?

Well everyone told me the dlc on steam would work on retail, so I got it, but no key. How can I find said key?

Bad company 2 dlc that is.

Do you mean the SPECACT Kit Upgrade DLC?

If so, click Library, right click BFBC2 and select "View game CD key" then type the key into the game menu.


If you mean Vietnam, then read below.

There is no key.

No it will be in your Library.
when they unlock it, right click on the item in your library and choose see cd key. Then you can type it into the game itself.

There is an option that is called Redeem key. You can find it in Multiplayer -> Redeem key

They used the method with the Limited Edition as the game just came out.

There are different ways to get the unlock code for the DLC. ( The content of the Vietnam game is already on your PC )

-Retail ( Buy a box with a paper card and code on on it )
-STEAM
-EA Store

All three methods can be used with any version that is available.

Yes, according to a post from one of the DICE members, yes it will hit stores.( that was a few months ago. If they still on planning it to go out retail I have no clear information )
Remember the booster packs for BF2?

That makes no sense, why are you even posting or even addressing something to me?

Well, now that I effed myself, I'm seeing if steam can fix it. They should just have it attach to your ea account from the start. I'll probably just get a refund of some sort.

the point the poster is trying to make is. He has retail so in his library there is no badcompany 2 to right click on. The vietnam/specact stuff is a dlc to view the keys you need to look at the dlc section of badcompany 2, but he doesnt own bc2 on steam so he doesnt have a way to view them.

Thats what he means or leat what i think he means.

OP should have read before he clicked. The SPECACT DLC on Steam is clearly marked: "Requires the base game Battlefield: Bad Company™ 2 on Steam in order to play."

If he hasn't got BFBC2 on Steam than he shouldn't have been able to order the specact DLC without at least having the base game BFBC2 with the order. It should be setup to deny the order unless you own the base BFBC2 game on Steam. If the ordering system allows specact to be ordered without already having purchased BFBC2 on steam than that's poor going on steams behalf.
