Battlefield 4 helicopters
The Battlefield 4 helicopters range from large attack helicopters to transport helicopters, to light and agile attack choppers. Helicopters in Battlefield 4 are based on their real world counterparts in service around the world. The main attack helicopter for the US faction is the AH-1Z Viper, the MI-28 for Russia, and the WZ-10 for China. Battlefield 4 helicopters usually seat more than one player — some of the transport choppers can ferry 6 players at once, but are generally very slow and vulnerable to enemy AA fire.
Battlefield 4 helicopters list
Helicopters in Battlefield 4 are faction-specific. They feature their own sets of unlocks, including flares, heat-seeking missiles, advanced radar, TV-missiles, and more. Both pilots and gunners can unlock additional equipment. Players can select their unlocks while they’re waiting to spawn, either in-game or on Battlelog. In addition to attack helicopters, the game features a number of transport choppers as well.
Battlefield 4 helicopter tips
Battlefield 4 helicopters are very versatile vehicles in the game. The attack helicopters such as the AH-1Z Viper are effective against both infantry, vehicles, and buildings, provided they have the necessary unlocks. A good pilot and gunner combination in one of the helicopters can wreck havoc on the enemy. The attack helicopters are also well suited for defending objectives, especially against infantry.
However, while Battlefield 4 helicopters are powerful, they are also very vulnerable in the air. Especially when hovering or doing low-altitude maneuvers, they’re easy prey to enemy AA vehicles and portable AA rocket launchers such as the Stinger and IGLA. These are best countered by Flares. Transport helicopters are especially vulnerable, since they feature lighter armor and have only basic weapons at their disposal. Even smaller vehicles such as boats can be equipped with AA missiles.
Battlefield 4 helicopter unlocks
Like other vehicles, most Battlefield 4 helicopters have many unlocks at their disposal. The most important ones being Flares, which make it possible to evade enemy AA missiles. Attack helicopters can unlock guided and TV missiles making them deadly against enemy vehicles. In order to unlock items, players must earn points while being in the helicopter. Pilots and gunner unlock their weapons and accessories individually.
