How to Unlock and Use the UCAV and SUAV in BF4

ucav & suav battlefield 4

Two new, powerful gadgets were added with the China Rising DLC for Battlefield 4 – the UCAV and the SUAV.

In this guide, I’ll show you how to unlock them and most effectively use them.

First, you’ll need the China Rising DLC. This may have come with your copy of BF4 when you bought it new. If not, you’ll need BF4 Premium or to purchase the DLC separately.

One of the most anticipated additions to the Battlefield 3 Aftermath DLC is the XBOW, or crossbow. This weapon comes in two variants – the Crossbow and the Rifle Scoped Crossbow. Each can be used with four different types of ammo or “bolt” – the standard bolt, HE bolt, BA bolt, and scan bolt. The crossbow gets a total of 10 rounds of each type and can be resupplied with an ammo box.

First off, you’ll need the Aftermath DLC to get the XBOW. Premium members have access to this automatically. Otherwise, you can purchase the Aftermath DLC individually for $15.

Battlefield 3 will include four distinct player classes: support, engineer, recon, and assault.

As was the case in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, numerous “unlocks” (weapons and gadgets made available by reaching goals in multiplayer) can be applied to the different classes. Most players will eventually branch out and vary their class each time they spawn based on their squad, the map, and other specifics of the battle.

However, many players will choose their favorite class or classes and unlock their unique items first. This can be of particular advantage in the first few weeks of the game’s release.
