Anyone interested in gaming has seen the Battlefield 3 soldier looking badass either from wallpapers, trailers, or the box art itself. The face behind the iconic photo is Dennis Lennartsson. He and DICE had to take over 500 pictures to get the current one on the cover known as the “soldier”. He says the gear he wore weighed 65 pounds which he wore during his motion capture session for the campaign. And is it just me, or do you feel like you’ve seen him before? Oh that’s right, it’s because he also posed for the Bad Company 2 cover.
