One of the new things introduced in Battlefield V is a squad rewards mechanic that allowed the squad leader the option to call in a supply drop, Tiger tanks, or even a V1 rocket attack on a specific target. Think of these squad rewards like Call of Duty’s scorestreaks, though these take longer to get, can only be called in by the squad leader, and don’t require you go on any streak to obtain.
If you’re curious what these V1 rockets look like, then wonder no more! Check out the video below where it’s showcased how devastating these things are. Count how many it takes down by counting the names that show up in the killfeed.

Impressive, right? Not sure how to activate it? Simple. All you have to do is hold L1 and R1 (on PS4, or LB and RB on Xbox One), and an item wheel will pop up, and just choose the V1 Rockets. That said, it’s easier said than done since you’ll need 40,000 points amassed in order to call one in. Once you do, you just use the scope to paint the target you want to get hit, and that’s it.
In other Battlefield V news, Lead Multiplayer Designer Valerian Noghin shared what a fully fortified point B looks like in the Rotterdam map. Windows can be boarded up, there’s barbed wire on the floor, even!
Open Beta feedback goodness: this is what point B on Rotterdam looks like now in the @FrostbiteEngine editor, fully fortified after it’s been destroyed. In addition, all windows can be boarded up and there’s barbwire on the ground floor. pic.twitter.com/Yuw6hyVRZU
