Arguably, the most brilliant things about Battlefield games are those totally unscripted, utterly bonkers moments you see happening in the thick of a firefight. In the reveal trailer for the newly announced Battlefield 2042, one of the most famous user-generated plays ever has been immortalised by EA and DICE.
Battlefield 2042 was officially announced by EA on Wednesday 9th after months of leaks and rumours. We now know that the game will take place in the near future, where the world is on the brink of collapse and soldiers of fortune are battling each other to be in positions of power when everything is said and done. That, apparently, includes pulling off some mind-bending (and thoroughly impossible) maneuvers to come out ahead of the competition.
Check out the reveal trailer below, and see if you can find which moment we're talking about:
In case you didn't spot that, I am of course referencing the audacious play of leaping from your own jet to bazooka the player in the pursuing jet, before landing back in your own jet and speeding off into the sunset. Absolute big brain play.
Those familiar with Battlefield, memes, or even the internet, will be aware that plays like this have gone viral in the past, as gamers manage to pull off the stunt during open games. Like this one from Battlefield 3, the only difference being the player steals their opponent's jet instead of sitting back in their own, which is double cheeky.
With random weather effects being introduced to Battlefield 2042, it's highly likely that even more crazy moments are going to happen. There's a twister that will suck up players and vehicles, sand storms that will pelt players with... sand, and presumably more ways for players to get their rocks off and perform ludicrous kills on each other.
We were treated to a behind-closed-doors screening of the trailer up above, where we found out a few more tidbits of info about the game, which if you're interested, you absolutely should check out right here.
