battlefield 4 Far from a perfect shooter. It has some awesome weapons and its netcode is weird. All of this pales in comparison to how powerful some of the game’s vehicles, especially its helicopters, can be. helicopter in battlefield 4 The higher ranks will receive some blatantly overpowered gadgets, requiring anyone to use more than a handful of rockets to try to take out. The gadgets, paired with the high speed of any helicopter, made it nearly impossible to destroy buggers on large maps, where players could see from behind buildings, inflict damage, and flee quickly.

In Battlefield 2042The open beta, which doesn’t seem to be a problem yet, and it may never be a problem, thanks to a series of solid nerfs implemented on the game’s helicopters. Compared to battlefield 4, Helicopter players will find 2042 are largely the same – a beefy attack helicopter and a smaller, more agile scout helicopter. Their weapons are also almost identical, with the only difference being that scout helicopters also have antipersonnel rockets.


However, the similarities begin and end here. helicopter in Battlefield 2042 they are much slower and less agile than they used to be battlefield 4Especially attack helicopters. They are now so clumsy and heavy that while flying it feels like driving a tank with a propeller mounted on top. For players tired of being tortured by aerial threats, these changes are a godsend.

don’t make the same mistake

Now I can only hope that helicopters stay like this when Battlefield 2042 launches. battlefield 4K’s helicopters were without a doubt overpowered, but what pushed them to that level were the gadgets players could unlock. After leveling those vehicles, players can toss the EMF Jammer that will keep missiles from locking up for about 10 seconds, along with a self-repair kit that will stabilize the helicopter if it is severely damaged , which will give pilots a second chance at life.

for anyone returning battlefield 4, or worse, recent additions to the game meant there were players who couldn’t be killed once they set foot in a helicopter. depending on Battlefield 2042approach to vehicle progress, it cannot happen.

Players should absolutely be rewarded for reaching higher levels, but they should not be given pseudo-invincibility on the battlefield. However 2042 Plans to reward its players for spending time in Helicopter, it cannot clear the endless odds in their favor. vehicle dominance in battlefield 4 already shows what happens when it happens, and it’s a mistake that shouldn’t be made twice in a row.
