Battlefield 4 – Moving Objectives, Counter-Knife Tweaked For Final Build and More

As we inch closer to Battlefield 4‘s official release only a few days away, we’re learning more about the final build of the game and how it differs from the beta that took place early October.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to read up on all the improvements that Battlefield 4 developers DICE announced they will be making to the final game right here.

Through some new footage published by YouTube personality JackFrags where he gives some of his own impressions regarding the final build of the game, we’ve learned a few interesting new facts.

Jack mentions that on at least one map, Golmud Railway in particular, the Conquest design will feature a moving objective point. In this case, an objective, or flag, that is stationed on top of a moving train, will actually move closer to the team that has that point captured, producing a tug-of-war-like effect between the two opposing forces. Seige of Shanghai, the map we got to play in the beta, was similar in that while it didn’t move in any sort of direction on the map, it did change elevation once the sky scraper it was perched on was destroyed.

The newly introduced counter-knife mechanic has been refined to no longer allow users to “spam” the knife button for easy kills. It was generally agreed upon that in the beta, it was rather easy to rapidly hit the knife button during a knife animation in order to effortlessly turn the situation around. Now, users must hit the key during a short prompt that pop’s up, giving you a smaller chance to get the timing right. Hitting the key before or after will result in a failed knife reversal.

There are a few other interesting bits of info, but we’ll let JackFrags explain in his video below. Check it out:

As JackFrags mentions in his video, look forward to some next-gen Battlefield 4 gameplay on October 29.

      Itsa shame u should just quit n b jobless like all the suckers on hre. Their life sux cause all they do is sit in their grandmas basement eattin cheese and drinkin apple juice holdin their crotch and their controller.

  • Joseph

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this, the (360) beta was fuck ugly and burned through my eyes. :o

    • Justin Mckay

      I really hope the 14 something gb install helps :p

      • Joseph

    • JohnD

      Ur mommas face burned my eyes last night n we went to the emergency rm n they called animal control cause the bitch had rabies.

  • Katana67

    Nice, and shame on the folks who immediately dismissed Golmud as boring.

    I personally don’t really like things like “objectives on trains”, why not just have the objectives themselves intermittently change based on strategic positioning? Or just have them be on a timer? I think there might be better ways of doing this, but it could be cool, definitely looking forward to trying it out.

  • dieger

    graphics look tons better

    • JohnD

      Your momma looks tons better since she got them hair exstensions bitch.

      • dieger

    • Vidalzinho

      That’s pretty sick! they should add moving people that aren’t online players like in counterstrike GO..animals when you pass by a farm and homes in the mountains with people in them and if you attack them then they attack back :P I don’t know just thinking

    • zacflame

      Just when you thought that only Rockstar can steal all of the good moments from Uncharted, they also add a scene in the campaign where you fight up the opening of a cargo plane.

    • JohnD

      Justin b mackin on his momma all night long……

  • theplantain

    It’s still gonna be a blast either way.

    Tuesday can’t get here fast enough

    • JohnD

      U r that guy i know! I was with ur mom last night!

      • That guy you might know

        Looks like we got ourselves another autistic troll.

        If you think these mom jokes are funny then please, carry on.

        • JohnD

          Tell yo momma to lose some weight cause i am tired of rolling that bitch in flour to look for the wet spot

          • That guy you might know

            You really decided to sit there and impersonate someone on the internet.

            Pretty sad bro

            • oofy

              Yeah, doesn’t he know baby powder is more effective?

  • JohnD

    Moving objectives. Awesome!!!!

  • JohnD
  • Kyle Jackson

    Turn the quality up to 1080p, and I think It’s the best looking BF4 clip so far, good map design as well.

  • the specialist

    this map looks fantastic.i was not going to buy battlefield but with some recent videos i saw i think i will.but can you guys give me some advise?should i get on ps3 or wait a year and get it on ps4?

    • dpg70

      A year? Its like 3 weeks. If you’re not getting the ps4 right away you can still buy it for the $10 ugrade fee

      • the specialist

        i actually can’t afford to pay 50$ a year:(if it wasn’t that i would go for the ps4

        • kevin lemur

          save up for ps4, not worth playing the game at 30fps, bland graphics, and 24p servers. ps4 by itself already have some great f2p games like planetside 2, black light retribution, and DC online if you cannot afford BF4 along with ps4.

          • the specialist

            i think i am going to do that.but still i have to wait a year to get ps4:(

          • the specialist

            i meant bf4 in ps4.the games you told me are good but i don’t think i can hold a whole year:(

        • NinoBr0wn

          If you can’t afford $50 a year, what are you doing getting a PS4 anyway?

          • JohnD

            Not everybody tricks out there own mom for money you fake as wanabee

            • NinoBr0wn

              lol it’s like you overgrown children on the net aren’t even trying anymore.

            • JohnD

              Wow i can tell where u got ur brain. The local 5 n dime store
              cause that shit aint makin no sense here.

            • NinoBr0wn

              Case in point. Now is there any actual logical reason you are trying to insult me? Because it’s embarrassing. I said nothing to you, and nothing you’re saying is even worth your own keystrokes. What’s your real issue?

  • 8inister

    A little absurd that he calls it “FINAL BUILD” to clickbait his video, when the final build will not be delivered until Tuesday to all three platforms in the form of a day one patch.

    • JohnD

      Maybe there will not be a day one patch. They have had weeks to implement changes from the beta.

      • 8inister

        :headdesk: Yes there will be a day one patch for PC, 360 and PS3.

        • JohnD

          Well hope it is not big.

          • Joseph

            when aren’t they?

    • XFistsClenchedX

      How do you know it wasn’t the final build? This was at a Battlefield review event. The machines they used could have been using the final build.

    • NinoBr0wn

      He’s Talking about the final build. What’s the problem? Because the video itself isn’t a final build? How exactly would he do that? lol JackFrags doesn’t need click bait.

  • Tyler Dominick

    My 1440p monitor should be here Monday or Tuesday. Body and Mind are ready… but eyes may EXPLODE!

    • JohnD

      Nobody cares about your 10 inch pc monitor. I will be enjoying bf on a 50 lcd pc fan tard.

      • Tyler Dominick

        Thanks for your support! It however will be a 27″ that i sit about 2 feet from, so should look amazing ( and maybe even larger to the eye then your 50″ that you should sit many, many feet from) O and yeah, your pixel density is what.. inches, lolzzz. All fun aside, we BOTH get to play such a great game and we BOTH will have killer experiences!

        ( Sorry, i had to troll a little)

        • B_Boss

          Damn I never knew pixel size mattered….I remember how awesome Super Mario Bros was on NES and dont get me started on 16bit…give me a gaming
          masterpiece and I care not for its resolution.

  • JohnD

    Punk niggas!

  • jj16802

    Can’t wait for my copy of the game! Decided to get the PC version over the PS3 version after what I’ve saw in the beta…

    • BroJ

      If you had a PC capable of running BF4 why would you even consider getting it on PS3. I think they should drop the price of the current gen version to 40 or 50 bucks because it is not the game it is intended to be on current gen. That would be fair.

      • jj16802

        I mostly game with friends on PS3 until I heard that they were disappointed with the PS3 version as well. And I’d just got an upgrade to my RAM during the beta, so might as well get it for PC now.

        • mhal

          you’ll need about $800 in crossfired, liquid-cooled, GPUs. :p

      • Joseph

        Amazon is pretty close to those prices! No retail shop will follow that for quite some time though…

      • Just saying

        Don’t say current anymore. They’re past gen consoles. We’re in PS4/XB1 current gen :)

    • Michael W

      Im stick with 360 version only because I can’t wait for the next-gen systems, plus I can transfer all my unlocks anyway. WIN WIN!

  • mathMaticks

    Love that before, or after ..results in deletion of counter knifing.

  • Ticmasta1234

    Yay! :D Everything looks so cool, cant wait for thursday! i shall get extra study done before then for exams ^_^ Golmud railway sounds awesome, as does floodzone! :D :D :D

    • mhal

      as does Seige of Shanghai, as does Paracel storm, as does Rogue Transmission :p

      yes. I do want!

      • Ticmasta1234

        DIS GUY KNOWS HIS MAPS ;) i applaud you, good sir.

  • Draco

    If someone counter knifes you on PS4 can you counter that counter knife?
