Battlefield 4 Javelin
The Battlefield 4 Javelin (or FGM-148 Javelin) is an unlockable rocket launcher used by the Engineer class in Battlefield 4 multiplayer. The Javelin is different from other rocket launchers in that it requires the player to lock on an enemy target (vehicle) before firing, unlike the AT4.
Because of this, the Battlefield 4 Javelin can only be used against vehicles. The upside is that it can track enemy vehicles and is very effective against all types of vehicles. The Javelin in Battlefield 4 can only be used by the Engineer class, and has to be unlocked.
The FGM-148 Javelin rocket launcher has been in use with the US military since early late 1990s, and is considerably larger and bulkier than the standard SMAW and RPG-7 rocket launchers in Battlefield 4. However, the Javelin has much longer range and fires a more powerful rocket.
In Battlefield 4 multiplayer, targets can be laser-designated by teammates, which makes it easier to lock on and fire the Javelin.

Battlefield 4 Javelin tips
The Battlefield 4 Javelin is the best weapon against enemy vehicles, both stationary and moving ones. Take advantage of your teammates who who provide laser targeting, which will make it easier to lock on and fire. When you lock on, the enemy vehicle will know that you’ve locked on, which means they’ll likely deploy smoke countermeasures. Therefore, wait after locking until the smoke clears, then quickly fire the Javelin before the smoke regenerates. The MBT LAW can be considered a simpler version of the Javelin.
