This article explains the search for clues to the Phantom program, it took thousands of players with scopes and flashlights many months to unlock its secrets. There were many people who contributed much to this project but it seemed only a few ever got any credit (Youtubers)Many of the links in this article to other websites no longer work as this was written well over a year ago!
 
Required!  You must be a Premium member to unlock assignments and to pick up dog tags. Your progress with the assignments does not start until you unlock these assignments!!! Once they are all unlocked you can work on them in any order.
 
Please follow these steps to start the Phantom Program and unlock the assignments.
 
You will need to go to the Leaderboards section on the top Battlelog menu and look on the on the bottom left of the map for the small phantom skull symbol and click on it and wait for the console style page to load  and input the passwords one at a time:
  1. “bumpinthenight” (without the quotes) for Phantom Prospect
  2. “epic dream worlds” (without the quotes) for Phantom Trainee
  3. “24344241893” (without the quotes) for Phantom Initiate

Current Status:

FOUND: BattleRushGaming Found on stream by putting different morse codes together: “1290-429-397648-970” Everyone was able to press R on the bow and unlock it. The second Keypad accessible: Same code seems to close the barrier and open it behind him.

Phantom Operative Password Hunt

With the Final Stand DLC releasing soon we will probably be getting the final round of Phantom Program easter eggs (unless there's the rumored extra DLC). Additionally, Phase 4 was confirmed after the solving of phase 3, although kind of bugged.

Introduction

We know Phase 4 is coming the proof of its existence is right after phase 3:

 

You can enter in another password for phase 4 but it can be anything and is a current bug in Battlelog.

JJJU confirming the bug:

Additionally, during the PP3 hunt JJJU made this statement:

Overview

Solid Evidence Only

What We need to Find

The "DICE CTE" wouldn't have been able to be seen unless you were floating above the servers with cinematic tools...

Unless a soldier climbed the ramps on the other side of the room, but the only way for a soldier to get in there is if we got through ANOTHER DOOR.

 Meaning:

1. Find Elevator

2. Get 4 guys in that have all PP assignments done and have one of each of the Premium tags equipped

3. Enter Elevator, and press the switch

4. Once inside, the "Russian girls" voice files will comment on your status as "Phantom Program Initiative"

5. The door opens, with a barrier that blocks access to the bow.

6. Figure out the pass, which is ???, on the keypad

7 Gain access.

8. Repeat 1-4, with the exception of the barrier down.

9. Get the bow.

10. Figure out the second Pass ??? and enter in the second keypad

11. go thru door into the server room.

12. Find DICE CTE EE

So in total, we are looking for:

  1. A passcode that will lower the barrier
  2. another passcode to open door to server room

The Assignment

Phantom Operative is a picture of a skull (as usual) with a bow and arrows behind it. This confirms earlier speculation of the Spyder being found in the game code being related to the assignment.

Correction to the Image (Said by Dan himself): The image on the bottom is incorrect. The assignment unlocks a dog tag.

“Phantom” = Spyder = Compound Bow

Code Confirmation:

-Says the assignment unlocks the “Phantom program dog tag”.

-Obtaining 500 Kills with the Phantom will unlock Phantom Master Dogtag

-”Operative orders received”?

-Spyder Description as stated below

Phantom Weapon

About a month ago someone was digging into the final stand battlelog files and found all the achievements: reddit post Interestingly enough he found this: 
Spyder (referred to as “spyder” in CTE code actually called “Shadow Hunter) - “The signature weapon of Phantom Program soldiers given to members who have completed their initiation. It's short effective range shouldn't pose a problem for a true Phantom Operative.”

Jack frags later mentions this post:
Jack Frags explains

Jack frags does some research and finds the Spyder is a compound bow:
Jack frags with more info

RadGamerDan found an attachment for compound bows called the “Spyder Counterweight”

Imgur post

Bow information Update:

TRGD Image

Other information about the bow:

  • "A prototype device created using parts from the MTN-55 and T-UGS. While active it will detect enemy movement within a narrow cone in front of you and report it to your team's minimap.";
  •  "Broadheads provide a balance in range and damage.";
  • "Sacrificing damage for weight reduction, this arrow flies straight and true.";
  • "A small explosive arrowhead that detonates on impact. The weight of the charge greatly decreases the effective range of the weapon.";
  • "Improves accuracy by providing additional balance and stability while reducing hand shock, noise, and vibration.";
  • "SPECIAL";
  • "TARGET DETECTOR";
  • "BROADHEAD";
  • "BULLET POINT";
  • "EXPLOSIVE TIP";
  • "STABILIZER";

Video Explanation

TheLinthus on Reddit Confirmed Phantom to take Primary Weapon slot and is found in the Carbine category

Video of Complete Bow stats explanation

TheLinthus even did some Battelog voodoo and has the bow equipped. You can see that the bow only has one optic (iron sites), a choice of accessory (the stabilizer), choice of ammo type, and choice of skin.

Note: The bow can be accessed and used in unranked servers where all the weapons are available.

The bow has the number 0882 on it.

The Password Page

 

TRGD Image

Pretty standard stuff, a bunch of nonsense about hard drive checks and program booting up. However, we have already proven with PP3 that huge hints can be hidden here.

Most importantly we can now see that It isn't even asking for a password/passcode. It's telling us that there is a “Physical access restriction in place” and my guess is that it's disallowing any passwords from working until:

  • We do something in game

Note: You can still type a password, it'll just tell you you're wrong then tell you to enter in another. It's asking for a PASSCODE again so not a password. This will be a string of numbers like it was last time.

Russian Sound Files

5 odd sound files found in the game files:

The Phantom Elevator

There is an elevator on Hanger 21 near A behind the jeep that wasn't there in the CTE. Check out the same BRG video I translated the words on the elevator: грузовой - freight лифт - lift тип3 - type 3

Translation 1 “Elevator controls operational”

Translation 2 “Access check in progress”

Translation 3 “Anomaly detected”

Translation 4 “Access granted”

Translation 5 “Hello operatives welcome to the phantom program”

Phantom Room

The entrance to this room is through an elevator which reinforces the idea (and can only go up). Then there is a “Holographic barrier” that we will have to find a way through. Then you have managed to get to the Bow.

This room has a floating bow which is supposed to unlock the bow when you pick it up like a battle pickup.

DannyOnPC seems to have managed to hack his way into said room: Video - TRGD Video -HDG Video

Possible sequence of events to unlock;

  1. Find Elevator
  2. ??? to activate power
  3. Enter Elevator, and press the switch
  4. Once inside, the "Russian girls" voice files will comment on your status as "Phantom Program Initiative"
  5. The door opens, with a barrier that blocks access to the bow.
  6. Figure out the pass, which is ???, on the keypad/Phantom Program (Leaderboards)
  7. Gain access.
  8. Repeat 1-4, with the exception of the barrier down.
  9. Get the bow.

After we get out of the elevator we will have access to a few things:

A “Steam Locker” with the 0-9 Keypad next to it.

Closer look

And a couple of old looking panels

:

a closer look:

  • Tag1 <- These are repeated
  • Tag2 <- These are repeated

 

strip at the top of this room's wall has a reflection from somewhere.

 

The wires and air ducts on the ceiling stay the same when going thru the barrier but the pipes change color;

 

After we get through the barrier the next room will be a room within a room. However, the door should be open so there should be no problem getting to the bow.

Within this room are 2 machines with dials and numbers.  Several of the BF3 nuke boxes, a tool box and a door in the back with “ангар 21”(which means “Hanger 21”). On the other side of this door is another 0-9 keypad.

But everything outside here is just crossbeams and cave ceiling…

Except for the server area:

As you can see they are clearly telling us something about the “DICE CTE”

Premium Dog Tags

SECOND MICROCHIP DOG TAG FOUND ON WHITEOUT!!!!

 

Original tags in Op Whiteout found by:

Elevator effects when wearing Premium Dog Tags

One tag(Op WO): The elevator Lights flash in morse code: Video

Morse code pattern: .-- . -.. .. ... -.-. ---

...- . .-. . -.. . .- .-. - .... .-.. --- -. --. - .. -- .

Translation: WEDISCOVEREDEARTHLONGTIM

Four players are required to have the following items:

  • One dog tag from a Final Stand map each. (each of the four players a different tag)
  • Phantom Camo uniform.
  • Phantom Camo on main weapon and pistol.
  • Multi-player Phantom dog tag.
Players Class, Team or Squad does not matter!!
If you are having problems at the elevator, get everyone out and each player gets in one at a time and sees if the lights come on and start flashing. If they do not the player does not have a Final Stand dog tag on.
 
If you are dying in elevator recheck your main weapon, pistol, and uniform camo. They must be Phantom Camo and the uniform camo can reset so check before spawning in. 
 
You can receive your assignment orders by interacting with the papers found on top of cabinets, see image below: (might be glitched in battlog) look in assignments at end of each game after killing with the bow!

As many people as can fit into the elevator can go as long as they have tags and camo on.

Warn before going back up, you will kill anyone in the elevator trying to come down...
 

Black Dog Tags

The phantom operative dog tags (black chip tags) are both (left and right) received after completing the phantom operative assignment which is to get 200 bow kills and 50 headshots. 

PREMIUMDOGTAG

There are a few perks to these tags that people have found so far... redit*

You can go down to the phantom room with any camo equipped.
You can go down with 2 operatives instead of 4 by equipping the right black tag and each having a non-matching map tag!

The Poem

WE DISCOVERED EARTH LONG TIME AGO.

WHEN HEADING TO THE OPEN SEA.
YOU FEEL ALIVE, THE TUNES OF FIFE.
THIS NEVER-ENDING STREAM OF LIFE.
ENJOY THE TREK(?), ENJOY THE PLAY.
IF FATE SAYS WE MAY MEET ONE DAY.
