Battlefield is full of moments like this. Some humiliating, some incredible, all of them unique. In this weekly series, I'll showcase three of my favourite videos from the community split into three categories; Skills for stunts, moments & close misses, Kills for jaw-dropping one-man rampages and Thrills for seat-switching, C4 trolling, long-range sniping awesomeness.
This week, sSantzuu gets an elevated look at the Battlefield, xXLargeFarvaXx will never let you air-drop an IFV, and Lupey19 takes us on one of the wildest dirt bike rides in BF3 history.
I’m constantly impressed by people seat-switching for maximum effect, whether it be zipping around on a dirt bike and rocketing jets, dropping TV missiles and not crashing a chopper, or SOFLAM-ing a jet and hitting it with a guided missile from a tank. I’m also impressed by long distance sniper skills. Combine the two, and you get this. It’s pretty awesome.
Okay, so there’s only one Kill here, but it’s a good one. It’s hard to think of this as an attack of opportunity, especially when you have the forethought to load up a jet with C4 before taking off.
Okay, I hear what you’re saying; “Those first two videos were really short, Jiggsy! Haven’t you got anything longer?” And yes, Dear Reader (or… uh.. Watcher…?) I do! This isn’t the first time someone has taken a concept and applied it to Battlefield, but I’m pretty sure no one has done it with Ken Block’s Gymkhana series. Until now. I really like this video. A lot. And since you’ve followed me this far, I imagine you will too.
Still looking for Claymore trolling, C4 dirtbike chopper take outs and knife kill streaks. Get them in!
As the APAC Community Manager for EA's Games Label, Jiggsy spends most of his time being shot in the face by people a lot better at Battlefield than him. Behind the wheel of a car he can do the Kessel run in under 12-Parsecs. He's just as dangerous with a sword as he is with an Omni-Blade, find out what he had on his sandwich by following @EA_Jiggsy on Twitter.
