EA Apologizes with Bonus BFC

The current Battlefield 5 Weekly Mission Reward is broken for some players, causing them to miss out on 100 Battlefield Currency (BFC) for completing it. Electronic Arts, however, is aware of the problem and will be handing out a bonus to all players, regardless of whether or not they've been affected.

If you haven't kept up with Battlefield 5, the game has "Weekly Missions" where players can complete a task in exchange for a reward. This week's reward was to be 100 Battlefield Currency, but a configuration error on the developer side led to a strange scenario where a small portion of players would not get the reward after completing the mission.

Primarily, the issue seems to be focused on longtime players of the game. As best as EA can tell, it has something to do with having completed a specific mission way back in Chapter 3. This is also the reason why some players aren't affected by this problem: they may have not even been around during that time in the game.

As an apology for the inconvenience, an update from an EA Community Manager states that all players will be getting 200 bonus BFC — that's twice the intended reward for completing the mission.

How Do I Get My Missing Battlefield 5 Weekly Mission Reward?

Although the developers are giving everyone a bonus 200 BFC, that doesn't mean that people who missed out on the reward are out of luck, either. EA will be working to fix the underlying issue and compensate players who missed out.

For now, a fix is in the works and will be undergoing thorough testing over the weekend. If there aren't any problems, it should be deployed early next week. Hopefully, the affected players will get their missing 100 BFC sometime around then, if not a little later.
