The SUAV is the new troll weapon in Battlefield 4
In BF3, the ultimate troll weapon used to be the UAV, which could mow down hordes of players. Especially on maps such as Operation Metro, players would rake in dozens and dozens of kills this way. Of course, DICE eventually patched it up and nerfed the UAV.
Now a new troll weapon has emerged in BF4: the SUAV. After the China Rising update, the small flying drone doesn’t destroy on impact, but still explodes when it hits players. However, if done correctly, it won’t explode.
If the drone hits enemy players from behind, there is less chance of it exploding, which means it’s usually possible to mow down an entire line of players in one go.
Here’s an example of a series of players getting mowed down on Operation Locker:
