That Battlefeel – Five Epic Battlefield Moments

2 days ago 274

Sometimes they’re unbelievable, sometimes just hilarious. Quite often they’re both. They can be that awkward moment realizing you’re on single fire mode, or when your squad buddy saves your derriere in the nick of time. We call them Battlefeels.

You’ve been constantly adding to the worldwide library of these feels by your incredible videos and screenshots and below you’ll find a handful – there are of course many more out there. So sit back with your favorite beverage and enjoy these prime Battlefeels!

“Pod Zook” – ponylionHD

Many have tried, few have conquered. Pulling off a true Rendezook is not done easily but PonylionHD has mastered this art form, time and time again. After successfully combining the move with a giant prehistoric shark (Rendolodon!), Pony has now applied futuristic equipment to perform the crazy RPG-slinging jump – using a pod in Final Stand.

“C4 is my Bae” – Fahed Abudayyeh

C4 in hand. A dozen foes at the same place. An epic ambush. We can only imagine how Fahed Abudayyeh felt coming across this golden opportunity on Operation Metro. The resulting kill streak crippled the enemy team, made the XP come flooding in, and produced a true Battlefeel. The total kill count? To quote Fahed’s own video description: “I couldn’t count them.“

“Anti-Air Dirtbike” – TheGuruGamer

Teaming up with a buddy and going on a Dirtbike ride feels good enough in its own right. But when Dirtbike magic like this happens, it becomes a Battlefeel for the books. Watch the majestic soaring of TheGuruGamer, the swift mid-air jet takedown, and the ensuing happiness of the duo.

“Warriors – BF4 Machinima” – TheS4tha

Ever felt that you’re inside a movie – but with the key difference that the outcome is in your hands? It’s a feel quite common within Battlefield 4 multiplayer. The cinematic and dynamic qualities of Battlefield 4 is captured beautifully in TheS4tha’s “Warriors”, featuring an intense clash at Hainan Resort. Epic paradropping, a lethal jet fly-by, and an explosive finale are some of the highlights.

“Epic Sax Guy Does Battlefield 4” – REC |Filming platoon|

It comes to us all. That sudden urge to lay down your weapons for a moment, and just bust a move on the Battlefield. What REC |Filming platoon| captures in the clip below is hard to describe in words. Just watch, stomp your feet, and surrender to the madness.

Make sure to share your own Battlefeels with us – whether it’s a video, screen, or story – through the comment section below. Curious about the upcoming Final Stand maps in the first Battlefeel?

History of the Support in Battlefield

3 days ago 280
137

This week is all about the LMG-wielding heroes that resupply us with ammo. As part of our third BF4 Class Week we look at how the Support class in Battlefield has evolved through the years.

 

bf4-history-support-1  bf4-history-support-2

Battlefield 2

The Support class joined the all-out war party when Battlefield 2 came along in 2005. Alongside the game’s 6 other classes, the basic duties of the Support were similar to what they are now: provide suppressive fire and resupply teammates using Ammo Boxes. The Light Machine Gun was the signature weapon for the class and those who wielded it had to master both bullet spread and cooldown of this powerful firearm. Support players in Battlefield 2 were also equipped with a body armor, basically turning their starting health to 133%.

Battlefield 2142

Though the fight took place in the future, the qualities of the Battlefield 2142 Support class were timeless. The enemy team had to watch out for the classes devastating Sentry Guns and ability to detect invisible soldiers. Getting more accurate as it was fired, the default machine gun was also a monster in the hands of a skilled Support – especially with the huge magazine capacity.

Battlefield: Bad Company

Accepting even more supportive challenges for the squad, the Support class of Battlefield: Bad Company took on the role of both healer and vehicle specialist. Medkits and Power Drill in hand, Support players took care of both bullet wounds and damaged rides. Teammates with empty mags had to rely on ammunition crates, though. We have fun, explosive memories of calling in the Mortar Strike to blow our enemies – or just buildings that had it coming – into smithereens.

 

bf4-history-support-5

Battlefield 3

The Battlefield 3 Support was in many ways a return to the kit in Battlefield 2, and the distribution of Ammo Boxes was once again one of the class’s responsibilities. With an arsenal of Light Machine Guns, Shotguns, PDWs and more, the Support was a diverse class that could be approached in many ways. Number 3 also introduced the suppression system, where gunfire cause reduced vision to enemies on the receiving end. And yes, the beloved C4 was now in the hands of the Support class. Good times!

 

bf4-history-support-6

Battlefield 4

Paved with LMG bullets and ransacked Ammo Boxes, the road to the present state of the Support has been an interesting one. In Battlefield 4 we still rely on the Support for ammo refills and the new Ammo Pack – smaller but also capable of being thrown further – has changed up this process. A new grenade launcher of both airburst and smoke variety was also gifted upon the Support, and China Rising players have a new toy in the remote-controlled UCAV.

All in all, there’s never been a better opportunity for supportive players to jump into Battlefield 4 and try out this class. And for you veterans, we hope you keep those resupplies and LMG kill streaks going!

Battlefield 4 Final Stand Closing In

With Battlefield 4 Final Stand right around the corner, we’ve prepped some intel on what to expect when the expansion hits. Read on for map info, Community Test Environment info and more…

bf4-fs-reveal-1

Ice and snow dominates the Battlefield this time around. Watch out for the harsh blizzards of Operation Whiteout.

This is Your New Battlefield

Make sure to pack your thermal underwear when you throw yourself in the all-new, wintry maps of Final Stand. You’ll fight through both enemy fire and the Siberian cold in Operation Whiteout, and explore a submarine base when you hit the mountainous Hammerhead. Military secrets and hints of future battlefields lie within Hangar 21, and in Giants of Karelia you’ll encounter both rural areas and a high-tech weapons factory.

bf4-fs-reveal-2

Surprise the enemy team with the XD-1 Accipiter, a remotely operated, LMG-equipped flying drone.

Hi-tech Military Gear

In Final Stand you’ll get your mitts on incredible hi-tech vehicles and military hardware of the near future. For instance, we have a hunch that you’ll love piloting the HT-95 Levkov, with the capability to move sideways with strafing. The mere sight of the devastating Rorsch MK-1will make sharp shooters drool, and the flying XD-1 Accipiter is another explosive Battle Pickup that will give you the upper hand on the Battlefield.

bf4-fs-reveal-3

You’ll see shades of Battlefield 2142 inside the hi-tech factory of Giants of Karelia.

Get Ahead With Gadgets

Any other toys lined up? You bet. On top of all mentioned, you can expect gadgets such as the Target Detector that attaches to DMR’s and Carbines and lets you auto-spot the enemy. The DS-3 DECOY emits false blips on the enemies mini-maps, fooling them into thinking they’ve got company.

The new Snowmobile lets you move rapidly over the vast and cold Battlefield.

BF4 Class Week: The Support

5 days ago 157

The Backbone of the Battlefield

Every Battlefield 4 class is a unique piece of a puzzle, fitting together and complementing each other as part of a team. While the Support class can be played however you choose, its job is simple: support the rest of the team.

See, ammo doesn’t grow on trees. And control points and M-Com stations don’t defend themselves. With the signature Ammo Box and Ammo Pack, the Support makes life easier for Engineers in need of RPG ammo, or Recons who just ran out of rounds. After all, who wouldn’t want to give your Recon friend more C4 to blow stuff up? When the Support is not busy sharing ammo, laying down suppressive fire with the mighty and class-specific LMG’s is a priority.

Community Mission: Make 50 million Resupplies

In honor of the backbone of the Battlefield we’d like to present you with an in-game challenge. In a new Community Mission designed for the Support class we want you to collectively do 50 million Resupplies. So jump into a game, equip those Ammo Boxes and Ammo Packs, and ensure that your team never will run out of lead.

This mission is active between October 14, 9AM PDT and October 21, 2AM PDT. Succeed, and we’ll award you with a slick new designed wallpaper artwork featuring the Support class*. The wallpaper will be posted on the Battlefield blog for download after the mission is completed.

Support Shortcut Kit Sale

For those who are new to the Battlefield, or perhaps have been away from it for a while, the Shortcut Kits are a handy way of catching up by unlocking all guns and gadgets. In honor of the Support Week, you can get a 30% discount on the Support Shortcut Kit** between October 15 and October 20. Head to the Battlelog store to check it out:

Top 4 Support Pro Tips

Master Suppressive Fire

Weapons aren’t just for racking up kills. Suppressive fire blurs the vision of your enemies and using the LMG’s for this can be brutally effective. Laying down suppressive fire earns you assist points and of course, you can also rack up a good amount of tickets while you’re at it. Suppress at medium and long range, and fight the recoil by firing in bursts.

Resupplies Done Right

So you need to hand out Ammo Packs to your team mates to be a good Support and bring your team closer to victory. But where and when is resupplying optimal? Reading the Battlefield and the current situation is key, so stay close to squad mates and check the minimap for the icons alerting you of ammo shortage. Listen to calls for ammo and throw down boxes near choke points, M-COM stations and flags.

Dominate With the Airburst

The Airburst gadget can give you the upper hand in many situations if you know when to use it. The grenades from this handy toy explode mid-air, making it ideal for taking out enemies behind cover. Aim down the sights at your enemy’s cover and the Airburst will lock in that distance. A few hits will probably get you the kill, even though your target is hiding or going prone.

Keep Your Gadgets and Yourself Hidden

Whether you’re planning on surprising enemy nests with some Mortar fire or launching the explosive UCAV into an enemy vehicle, always think about where you are, where your enemies are, and where you place your gadgets. You’re vulnerable when you’re firing Mortar shells, and you also don’t want the gadget itself to be destroyed right after deployment. In other words: hide yourself and the Mortar. As for the UCAV, the battery life is limited, so know where your target is when you launch it.
