Reinforcements in Battlefield™ V are a range of back up armaments or supplies earned by playing well as a squad. These can strengthen, maintain, or reverse a lead in any multiplayer match, mostly helping losing teams, but also great for adding an extra dimension of chaos to the battle.
Below we’ll cover how to earn them, use them, and the different types.
What are Requisition Points?
These are the in-match funds you accrue by playing the objective as a squad and doing everything within your Class and Combat Role to help your buddies win, such as reviving, healing, resupplying, spotting, and more. Each Reinforcement has a point total that must be reached to deploy them on the field. Requisition Points are linked to squads, so if a player were to leave a squad, they do not take any points with them.

What Are the Reinforcements and What do Each Cost?
Axis and Allies have a different set of Reinforcements that function in a similar way depending on their category: vehicle, tank, or flying bomb. The bigger the guns the more Requisition Points needed to call them in. Let’s have a look.
How Do I Call for Reinforcements?
Once your squad has enough Requisition Points (you can see these next to the Squad Leader’s name), it’s the Squad Leader’s duty to pull up the Squad Leader Radio and select their Reinforcement of choice. Reinforcement Call-ins (supply canister, rocket strikes) are targeted using the binoculars. Vehicles are purchased and then appear in the deploy screen for anyone in your squad to spawn on.

When Should You Call for Reinforcements?
Every battle is waged differently, so it is up to the squad and its leader to assess the situation. A good rule of thumb is that Reinforcements favor the team that is behind, but below are a few tips to remember.
