Product Review: Battlefield 4 (part three) Objectives NOT as told by Mega Blox

Hey, readers!  Last time, we went over my favorite vehicles in Bf4.  Today, we’re talking about Battlefield’s objectives and how to play them.  Remember, this game is rated ‘M’ for mature.

There are thirteen different game modes.  Here they are:

  1. Conquest
  2. Rush
  3. Team Death Match
  4. Squad Death Match
  5. Obliteration
  6. Domination
  7. Air Superiority (one of my favorites)20161201_074449
  8. Capture the Flag
  9. Carrier Assault (large)
  10. Carrier Assault (small)
  11. Chainlink
  12. Squad Obliteration
  13. Gun Master

First, let’s discuss Battlefield’s signature game mode, Conquest.  The idea is to capture and hold objectives.  The way you do that is by going into a certain area called a capture point.  If you’re capturing alone and one enemy is on the objective with you,then it will not capture.  That’s the same with two, three, four, and so on.  Above, is me defending objective ‘Charlie’ from an attacker.  Also, if you are capturing an objective and get outnumbered, the capture status goes backward and the enemy team takes back the objective.

Now for rush, as I promised in part one.  The Objective for the attackers is to blow up a set of M-COMs.  M-COMs are these box-like objects that hold fragile data.  The attackers need to destroy that data.  Here’s how to do it.  You need to get to the M-COM station and hold the ‘square’ button (‘X’ on X-Box) for certain amount of time until it’s armed.  Then, you must keep the defenders from disarming it.  You need to do that to two M-COMs per set.  There can be as little as three sets, or as many as six.

Product Review: Battlefield 4 (part two) Vehicles as told by Mega Blox

What’s up, gamers!  Welcome to part two of the Battlefield 4 product review.  Previously, we discussed the infantry standpoint of Battlefield 4.  Today we’re learning about Battlefield 4’s vehicles.  Remember, this game is rated ‘M’ for mature.

The list includes lots of vehicles, so I’ll discuss my favorites.  Here’s the entire list:

  1. Tanks
  2. Two types of LAVs (Land Attack Vehicles): anti-infantry and anti-air
  3. Attack boats
  4. Scout helicopters
  5. Attack helicopters
  6. Transport helicopters
  7. Attack jets
  8. Stealth jetsimg_20161115_1322218251
  9. Transport trucks
  10. Jeeps
  11. Jet skis
  12. Transport boats
  13. Quad bikes

First, let’s talk about tanks.  They have lots of different types of shells (bullets), but only two can be equipped at a time.  Regular shells are called primary and special shells that do different things, like locking onto tanks, are called secondary.  They can also be equipped with various accessories, but only two can be put on your tank at a time.  I am  going to name what I’ve  equipped on my tank:

  • Sabot shells (non-explosive rounds that that deal high amounts of enemy vehicles)
  • Staff shells (explosive rounds that when fired, lock onto the tank at the very last20161115_160159 minute and hit the tank from the top)
  • Active protection (laser detonator that blows up incoming projectiles)
  • Reactive armor (extra armor that absorbs enemy fire and decreases damage to the tank)

 

Well, I think we have time for one more vehicle.

An air vehicle.

One of the most deadly air vehicles of all!

(*drum roll*)

ATTACK HELICOPTERS!

Attack helicopters are like the tanks of the skies!  They’re equipped with rocket pods, secondary missiles, flares, and lots of accessories to choose from.  You can customize your load out for the gunner’s seat as well.  This is my load out:

  • Hydra rockets (type of rocket)
  • Air-to-air missile (missile that will lock onto enemy aircraft)
  • Jyro-stabilizer (a device that will stabilize the air craft faster when immobilized)
  • ECM jammer (a smoke that can be emitted from the helicopter that prevents missile locks and disrupts incoming missiles)

I’ve Got My Two Front Teeth, Now What?

What’s up, readers?  Thanksgiving is over, so now it’s time to start thinking about Christmas.  Here are some of the things that are on MY wish list:

  • The top wish on my list would be a TOTALLY AWESOME game called Overwatch.  I’ve played a weekend trail of the game and I love it.  You can choose between lots of different heroes, each one suited for different purposes. My favorite hero is Bastion, a 100% deadly battle bot that has decided to become one with nature. When you pick him, he’s holding a small bird on his finger.

  • My second have-to-have gift would be the Nerf Rival Zeus.  The “Rival” is a type of Nerf gun, and the “Zeus” is a type of Rival.  I’ve used a Rival Apollo that my friend owns and it is THE BEST Nerf gun I have ever used!  The reason I don’t want the Apollo is because it has a VERY difficult cocking mechanism.  The Zeus (I’m pretty sure) is semi-automatic.  This means you can fire one round at a time without cocking the gun.  This gun has a six dart capacity along with the Apollo.

  • Next, I want the Nerf Mega Centurion.  I’ve never used a Centurion, but I have used Mega Cycloneshock which is a revolver.  The Centurion is a sniper rifle.  It has a range of up to one hundred feet!  The bullets also make a cool whistling noise when fired.  It has a bipod included and it’s a straight pull as opposed to a bolt action.  Straight pull is when you load, you use a lever on the side that you pull back, then push forward.  Although, you do not need to load the Centurion.   Bolt action is where you pull up, pull back, push forward, then push down, then you’re dead because it took you so long load the gun!

Merry Christmas and Nerf or nothin’!
