Battlefield started out from a modest first person shooter where the flaws made for part of the fun experience. As the series matured so did the physics and gameplay which rid the game of some of the “quirks.”
One of the things that used to be possible was loading up a small fast vehicle with explosives, driving it as fast as you can at an enemy tank, bailing out and blowing the whole lot. Back in the earlier Battlefield games, this was less tactfully known as ‘jihad jeep’. It takes a bit more planning than it used to as you put AT mines on a breakable surface, drive into the breakables so the AT mines land on your vehicle and away you go.
YouTuber ujinujin bb showed off the convoluted steps to load up your vehicle and you can see the different kinds of locations you could setup in.
It was quickly replicated by DANNYonPC shows the ‘C4 jeep’ in action in Battlefield 1 by loading up a bike and side car with explosives then running it into the enemy tanks.
So while you are laying waste to the enemy in your tank, be sure to keep an eye out for fast moving vehicles heading in your direction as they might be deadlier than they appear. Also, if you are on a friendly fire enabled server and someone starts loading up inanimate objects with explosives and has a bike and side car or fast moving vehicle close by, consider running to your destination instead of getting a lift.
Whether DICE will look to patch out this new technique isn’t known, we assume it will depend on how much it gets used and whether it becomes a significant problem.
Battlefield 1 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
