Some basic tips and tricks for Battlefield 5.
Battlefield 5 is almost here. The newest game in DICE and EA’s long running multiplayer shooter franchise takes upon the excellent foundation laid down by Battlefield 1 in 2016, and then kicks it up a notch further by evolving and iterating on it further. While this is still fundamentally Battlefield, and especially Battlefield 1, which means veterans should find themselves largely at home, there’s also concurrently a lot to unwrap. Let’s get down to some basic tips and tricks that could mean the difference between victory and defeat in the game.
Do daily missions. These get you Company Coins, the in game currency for buying cosmetics.
Be mindful of your sidearms. If you ever run out of ammunition, your sidearm is actually perfectly viable and can keep you alive for as long as it takes for you to find yourself some more.
Everything is destructible. You can use this to your advantage, and to the opponent team’s disadvantage. Use it to create cover, create choke points, obstruct the enemy, and more.
Play the objective. Once more, this is not your usual shooter. Most modes are objective based. Play the objective, don’t just focus on your K/D ratio.
Learn how to pilot the vehicles. Goes without saying after the previous point, but you want to learn to pilot them to be able to help your team out, and better maneuver your way to victory.
Sometimes it’s good to die. In Battlefield 5, once you are “killed”, you’re actually downed. At this point you can be healed by your teammates, but it might not always be a good idea to get a medic to you to revive you. If you’re in hostile territory, just use the Bleed Out button, and take the hit. It’ll be more beneficial for the team in the long run.
Take out enemy vehicles. As mentioned previously, vehicles can be the difference between victory and defeat. If you have the capacity to take out an enemy one, absolutely do it.
Use the turrets. The maps are littered with these, and they can get you some very easy kills, while also making your reasonably unassailable.
Health regeneration takes a good while. If you’re low on health, try to find cover that you can be sure will keep you safe for a bit, because it will be more than just a few seconds.
Adjust the sensitivity settings. The default sensitivity settings in the game may do it for a lot of you, but they can also feel sluggish, which can be catastrophic in multiplayer. Tweak them until they’re at a level you like more.
Don’t use vehicles unless you know how to drive them. They’re hard to come by, and using one properly can mean the difference between victory and defeat. If you don’t know how to actually drive the vehicles, stay out and defer to your team mates who might.
Be a team player! I’m pretty sure the other tips and tricks listred here have made it clear, but teamwork is paramount in Battlefield 5. Don’t lone wolf it, be a team player.
