With Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, another exciting Chapter of Battlefield™ V is upon us. If you’re not familiar with Chapters, they are several weeks long and come with new battlefields, challenges, modes, weapons, progression options, and more to evolve your Battlefield V experience.
Just as you can climb the ranks of the classes, weapons, and vehicles of your Company, you can rank up within each Chapter. The ways to progress are simple – and the rewards are sweet. Let’s go through it.
