New BF4 gameplay videos show rocket launchers and remote mortar
We’ve got some brand new videos that take an in-depth look at the Support and Engineer class in Battlefield 4. The new BF4 videos show in detail some of the new gadgets the Support class has, such as the new remote Mortar, and the XM25 grenade launcher. In Battlefield 4, players can deploy the mortar, and operate it remotely from anywhere on the map. If you thought the mortar in BF3 was annoying, we can’t begin to think what kind of raping will ensure with a dozen remotely operated mortars.
She second BF4 video shows the rocket launchers in action, which include the SMAW, SRAW, RPG-7V2, MBT LAW, Javelin, and the two anti air missile launchers: the Stinger and Igla. The game features 5 rocket launchers and two anti air launchers.
The video gives a good explanation on the different rocket launchers, which have seen some changes. For example, the Javelin is no longer a “fire and forget” launcher — you have to stay on target the whole time. Finally, there is also a Battle Pickup rocket launcher, called the Starstreak. It can attack both air and ground targets.
