Battlefield 4 Will Have A Test Range Where You Can Practice Flying

If you’ve ever played a Battlefield game in the past then you know that jumping into a helicopter for the first time can be rather daunting. Mastering the controls takes plenty of practice, something which is hard to do in the middle of a heated battle. Worse yet is finding yourself charged with flying a transport helicopter packed with troops. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

This is a great news for me. Whenever I train myself to pilot in BF3 within minutes I die
Crazyglues  +   699d ago
Yeah, wow this is Awesome, it is indeed needed - flying has been a super challenge since I've been playing Battlefield, and I've learned the hard way..

So it's pretty cool there will be training now, Because there is nothing worst then when you are trying hard as hell to get the mission done, (capture A or B ) and your down to 30 spawns, and you hop in a chopper only to find out this is this guys first time flying....

2 sec's later your dead as the chopper crashes hard into the ground...

I've actually learned how to handle jets a lot since Air Superiority came out. I am just trying to brush up on my gunning and chopper skills. But, I am really happy they are coming out with a training mode, it was needed.

This game just ticked up a few notches on my must have meter. I like the sound of this!
TopDudeMan  +   699d ago
It is a skill I have yet to learn. I can fly them well but can't shoot anyone. I've been more successful in getting kills by hitting people with vehicles than using the weapons on them in BF3.

My attempts at flying a jet, helicopter - "Killed by bad luck".

Awesome. Planetside 2 has one and it helps a lot. Good move.
tigertron  +   699d ago
Now I can practice at flying jets! hopefully many people will take advantage of this, particularly chopper pilots who love to fly backwards into things.
Majin-vegeta  +   699d ago
This is old.BTW why didnt you people just go into an empty server and do it?
HarryB  +   699d ago
Because a lot of times you go into a server practicing and some moron spawn kills you from their copter or plane. And then the idiot starts capturing spawn points in a 64 man server and its just you and this one idiot who has 256 ping. The round ends and you rage quit.

Nice I have not bothered to fly anything in bf3 to busy trying to unlock a decent gun against people who have clocked and unlocked everything I just didn't get around to it yet lol.

iRocket  +   699d ago

Love the Battlefield Friends serious...
meatysausage  +   699d ago
I feel sorry for those who have to sit in my chopper while I pretend to know how to fly the thing. Never lasts more than 45 seconds
Stsonic  +   699d ago
Good I could fly on battlefield 1943 on Xbox but never lasted more than 10 seconds on PC with bf3
jjb1981  +   699d ago
Yes, so many times ive started off great and turned too fast only to destroy my whole squad.
HarryB  +   699d ago
Its a fantastic idea.
objdadon  +   699d ago
Finally!!!! I've been wanting this! This will help them continue to draw people closer to battlefield, it's a pain in the ass when you have to learn to fly in game action.
donjunedolo  +   699d ago
I've always sucked at jets and choppers and could never figure flying out. Now it's bombs away!
sAVAge_bEaST  +   699d ago
I would just find an empty server, and practice following the road around on wake island, in a Helli to master it. but this is cool.
Sethmm  +   699d ago
Awesome! I couldn't fly at all in BF3, but I will in BF4!
Fred_C_Dobbs  +   699d ago
they only thought about this now, im still not buying. bf always had daunting flying controls and the fanbase basically camps by the aircrafts. then they rush you when one appears in front of you.
Battlefield players are the worst players out of all fps games. major league campers.screw this series i hope it bombs.
RegorL  +   698d ago
"bf always had daunting flying controls" compared to what?

I think they feel a lot like actual flight simulators or radio controlled vehicles. They are difficult. But at the same time it gives those who know what they doing a opportunity to do more.
FITgamer  +   699d ago
Im a beast in the choppers, but when i get in a jet you can call me the Kamkazie Kid. So this is cool.
