Battlefield 4 to finally get ballistic shields in upcoming Dragon’s Teeth DLC

Battlefield 4

DICE have used a presentation at this year’s GDC to reveal that Battlefield 4 players will soon be able to shield-bash people right in their ugly faces once the upcoming Dragon’s Teeth DLC is released.

The ballistic shields will be two-handed, meaning you won’t be able to fire one and use a gun, but you will have a sweet piece of moveable cover and one that you can use to bash people up to a metre away.

“There was a lot of resistance at first,” said senior animator Ryan Duffin, “but the more we assessed it, the more we realized it was a better feature. It turns out that stopping bullets in a first-person shooter is a ton of fun. We’re confident that it will create a new dynamic for the game.”

Get two shielded guys side by side in Metro with a couple more behind them shooting and it could make things interesting…until someone spams a lvg…

I’d assume they still get damaged and won’t last long in that kind of situation. I hope anyway.

 

Suddenly an image of vikings or spartans doing a shield wall comes to mind!

Would certainly add some new tactics to bf4.

 

LOL that’s an awesome idea.

32 dudes with shields running towards the enemy and shield bashing the crap out of them.
