Battlefield V Won’t Let You Switch Teams, Will Not Have a Button for It

Share this:

If you’re a multiplayer shooter fan, chances are you’ve been on the receiving end of a beat down in one form or another online. Sometimes when this happens, you can switch teams to be with people that actually play to win, or if you’re good enough, switch to the losing side so you can help balance things a bit. Apparently, that won’t be at all possible in Battlefield V!

Over on Twitter, YouTuber DannyOnPC pointed us to this little factoid, and yep, it’s real!

DICE Software Engineer Kevin Moore also mentions that now, there’s “no button” to switch teams unlike past entries in the franchise! You will be able to join the other, but only if you have a friend (online friend) on the other team!

Additionally, DICE Multiplayer Producer David Sirland weighs in on this controversial topic, and suggests that players try it first, and if it doesn’t, the studio will fix it.

As a longtime Battlefield fan, I have to say, I don’t agree with this. But who knows, right? Maybe DICE knows what they’re doing.
