Battlefield 4 Tips & Tricks from the Community

Battlefield 4 is a massive game, and whether you’re jumping into the battle for the first time or you’re a seasoned veteran, there’s always new stuff to learn, and new skills to master. To kick off the New Year (and to welcome all of the new players joining with the recently released Origin Access* – hello new players!), we gathered some of the best tips and tricks videos the community has put together since BF4 released.

XfactorGaming has a series called “How to Be a Better Noob”, and it provides a great crash course on the fundamentals of success in Battlefield 4. You can check out the playlist here, or jump into the first episode.

LevelCapGaming‘s video on Basic Tactics 101 does just what the name suggests – it gives a brief overview of some of the most important mechanics of the game. Want to learn about the mini-map, reloading tips, and how to find cover in a firefight? He’s got it covered.

JackFrags has some tips for players looking to up their skills from noob to pro. In the video above, he gives out some map-specific tips, but also provides some really strong feedback that can improve anyone’s game.

DooM49 has some advice for players having trouble in the skies. In the video above, he dolls out some solid advice on improving your pilot skills once you find yourself in a jet.

Westie, on the other hand, has a killer video for prospective Battlefield 4 snipers (Recon class) out there. His advice isn’t a one-size fits all approach, but he definitely has some strong advice for anyone looking to attack from afar.

There you have it! Hopefully, with these tips in-hand, you’ll be able to take on the New Year with some new skills under your belt.

A New Champion was Crowned for the ESL One Battlefield 4 Winter Season

Cologne, Germany was the setting of last weekend’s ESL One Battlefield 4 Winter season finals, where eight teams battled it out for the title of ESL One champion and the lion’s share of the ‎€35,000 prize pool.

A new champion

The weekend was filled with exciting and nail-biting matches, but none were as close as the grand finals between INTZ e-Sports and Epsilon eSports. The two titans went head to head in one of the closest series in Battlefield 4 history. However, after five maps it was Epsilon who claimed the victory and were crowned champions of the ESL One Battlefield 4 Winter season.

The second place curse

INTZ once more fell short of the trophy, losing out to Epsilon in the grand finals, but the team also yet again proved their skill, reaching their third grand final in a row.

  • First place: Epsilon eSports
  • Second place: INTZ e-Sports
  • Third/fourth place: PENTA Sports, InFamouS
  • Fifth/sixth place: SYF Gaming, Evolution Gamerz
  • Seventh/eighth place: LeiSuRe, ReVo Esport

The end of the winter season finals also marks the end of ESL One Battlefield 4 in 2015. 2015 was an incredible year for Battlefield 4, with over ‎€120,000 given out over the course of three fantastic seasons. It also brought us teams from the Americas as they joined the league and showed their strength.

ESL One tournaments are organized and sponsored by Turtle Entertainment GmbH. Information on tournament rules and setup can be found at Battlefield.ESL.eu and ESL-one.com/Battlefield.
