Battlefield 4: hidden 'Phantom Prospect' assignment appears, this video explains what it is

Battlefield 4: China Rising adds a new, hidden assignment into the mix that leads players to a strange boot-up screen for something called the Phantom Prospect. The internet has dug up a wealth of clues on the matter already, those clever people.

YouTuber MattTheMusketeer has shared a video with us detailing how you gain access to the Phantom Project screen. It's above.

You'll find a strange skull logo in the leaderboard section of Battlelog page called Phantom Prospect that, when selected, enters you into a screen similar to a PC boot-up process. If you enter the password 'bumpinthenight' the boot begins and you unlock the assignment.

Then, if you get 200 kills with an assault rifle, 200 kills with a main battletank and a 300 meter head-shot. You must also have played on Premium. Doing all of these assignments will unlock a new dog-tag.

Now then, we know that the boot screen initiates you into the Phatom Program, and that 'Prospect' is a term used for potential initiates into a group or organisation. Does completing these objectives grant you access to a program of new assignments? Will there be another Phantom assignment soon?
