Battlefield 4: Helicopter Vehicle Unlocks

Battlefield 4 helicopters come in a few flavors for the pilot to choose from. Attack, transport, or light and agile attack choppers. Helicopters in Battlefield 4 seat more than one player  and can seat as much as 6 on transport choppers. Helicopters are faction-specific and feature their own sets of unlocks for both the pilot and gunner(s). Some unlocks include flares, heat-seeking missiles, advanced radar, TV-missiles, and more.

Scout Helicopters, as the name suggests, are typically used by military forces for observation roles. While most multi-role Helicopters can be adopted for such a role, purpose built Scout aircraft are often fielded, and are usually smaller and more lightly armed than dedicated Attack Helicopters, and without much in the way of transport capabilities. Scout Helicopters, when fitted with the proper weapon systems or facilities, can also be used for specialist support roles, such as fire-support, anti-tank and casevac duties. They are sometimes used for the insertion and extraction of small teams of infantry; the speed and smaller size when compared to transport craft make the vehicle hard to hit in a combat situation.

Attack Helicopters are a combat-dedicated helicopter. Many attack helicopters are two-seat, with a gunner and a pilot, and are armored against small arms fire. Though capable of air-to-air combat against other helicopters, they are not intended to take on the faster and more agile fixed-wing aircraft, and as such are mostly relegated to a ground-attack role, and to fit that role are built like mobile weapons platforms; most modern attack helicopters have a nose-mounted Vulcan cannon or auto-cannon, rocket pods, guided missiles, and occasionally other armaments

    Everything looks cool, but why hasn’t DICE worked on transport choppers? Seriously, I like to provide transport for my team mates and I was disappointed by the fact that in BF3 there was absolutely nothing to upgrade your transport chopper.

    But this came as even bigger disappointment. WHY haven’t they put some upgrade on those choppers? I’m not asking for rockets. I’m asking for decreased amount of time between flares, maybe more seats for players, below radar thing. I dont know… I just want something for my transport choppi……….. damn it.

  • Mummy
