Battlefield 4 SRAW


Battlefield 4 SRAW (predator)The Battlefield 4 SRAW (or FGM-172 SRAW “Predator”) is a lightweight rocket launcher available to the Engineer class in multiplayer. Unlike the SMAW, the Predator SRAW in Battlefield 4 is a wire guided missile launcher, making it possible for players to track and home in on their target. This is especially useful against moving targets, such as tanks. Another wire-guided rocket launcher is the AT4, which has also been featured in previous series in the game. An upgraded version of the SRAW is the MBT LAW, which offers a wire guided rocket.

The Battlefield 4 SRAW (aka FGM-172 SRAW) was first featured in the series in BF2, where it was also used by the Engineer class. The SRAW is similar in damange and range to the SMAW and the RPG-7, but it’s guided instead. The SMAW has been in service since 2002, and serves as a complimentary rocket launcher to the much larger Javelin system.

Battlefield 4 SRAW tips

Like with other rocket launchers, when firing at a moving target, it’s always best to fire ahead of the target. The Battlefield 4 SRAW is wire guided, but that only means that the missile can be “adjusted” slightly when in the air, to compensate for any moving target.

    I have never understood wire-guided missiles. Or rather, I don’t understand how you could guide it with a wire.

      The missile is attached to the launcher by a very thin wire, with signals sent from the weapon to the missile to guide it. Think of a wire guided missile as a landline telephone and the Javelin as say a mobile/cellular phone.

    So it’s basically a portable TOW with less damage.
