BF4: The Edge of The Battle Guide (WIP)

2 posts in this topic

Welcome, fellow soldier! Make yourself proud with this guide that explains every single thing in order to achieve maximum success! 


So what is BF4 actually? BF4 is of course the sequel to BF3 using the new engine Frostbite 3 that allows high definition graphics and dynamic destruction (aka a low budget version of the engine used in BF: BC2 which allowed the entire map to be destroyed) BF4 has a few bugs here and there as well glitches as of today from the constant patches and fixes. (Seriously through, you've done fucked it up at the launch) BF4 is a first person shooter massive multiplier that is heavily based on realistic modern warfare that requires persistent teamwork and communication through platoons, squads, or a friendly and casual server jumping time.


This game is also very challenging to new FPS players and players who are not familiar to BF/BF similar games. 


1. Getting Started


Before we jump into discount Michael bay battlefields, you must have the specs to do so (unless you're a console player)


Minimum Requirements:



CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz, AMD Athlon X2 2.8 GHz or better CPU Speed: Info RAM: 4 GB OS: Windows Vista SP2 32-Bit (with KB971512 System Update) Video Card: 512 MB AMD Radeon HD 3870 / NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT or better Free Disk Space: 30 GB



After downloading a heck of a game on Origin, you are now ready to jump in the battlefield of destruction and lady screams!


2. Basic Tips


Sure, play a few rounds here and there on a few gamemodes, you might ask yourself: What the heck do I do and how do I do the game's functions? Well basically, follow these convenient and simple tips to make you a better soldier!


  • Cover mechanic: This allows you to shoot over and to the sides of a cover object, making you more safe from enemy fire and less damage from explosions. This is great for ambushing or covering fire, but be cautious since you are vulnerable to headshots as well potential threats from enemies sneaking up behind and knifing you.
  • Sprinting: Almost half of your gameplay is about sprinting. Sprinting away (SHIFT) allows you run away from surprise enemy gunfire or from danger. Sprinting of course allows you to travel more quicker across a massive map.
  • Aim Down: This is pretty obvious since it gradually helps your accuracy and focus. However, you should aim down appropriately as it decreases awareness around your area. 
  • Using Gadgets: All four classes have specific gadgets to help assist you in battle, from healing to repairing, supplying to scouting. However, use your gadgets at the right time and make it useful.
  • Reload: It may be obvious, but when you are in the middle of a gunfight, you are screwed. So reload whenever possible and lock and load.
  • Firing at Ranges: Never go full auto when a enemy is 1000m away, it is of course very inaccurate and you should use careful but quick burst fire/single shots upon a enemy that is distant from you.
  • Q key: Ah yes, the spot key. It is legitimately very useful to reveal enemies and makes you more focused in using different tactics to eliminate enemies. This is also good for your team, as you can get points for spot assist.


3. Game Mechanics


With frostbite 3 and a couple of other things, BF4 is a improved BF3 that has more "things". However, a new thing-a-ma-jig called Levolution is basically destruction of a specific thing (aka the only awesome destruction and is not awesome as BF:BC2) Basically, you do specific things in order to cause some destruction. Like for the skyscraper, take out its supports and it goes boom, crashing in the water while you jump off with a parachute and debris flying all over the place. Of course, it can get awkward afterwards as it is very unusual for a skyscraper to turn into only a pile of rubble during the levolution event. On the other hand, there are a couple of mini levolutions like turning the lights off or shooting plants. Unfortunately, the big game levolutions are on vanilla maps and there are quite a few in DLC packs. Of course, the rest of the mechanics are game realism to military wars.
