Battlefield 4 AC-130 Gunship


Battlefield 4 AC-130 GunshipBattlefield 4 AC-130 Gunship is a powerful air to ground attack airship that’s available via the Commander feature. The AC-140 gunship in Battlefield 4 can be unlocked on maps when a team controls a specific control point, after which the team’s commander can deploy the gunship. The Battlefield 4 AC-130 Gunship is one of the most powerful weapons in the game, capable of wrecking havoc on the ground, both against vehicles, infantry, and buildings. The gunship is armed with a powerful 25mm auto-cannon against infantry, and and even more powerful 105mm cannon against vehicles and buildings.

Battlefield 4 AC-130 Gunship overview

The AC-130 gunship in Battlefield 4 doesn’t feature a pilot — it flies automatically in a circle around the map. Two gunners man the 25mm and 105mm guns. However, because of its large size and slow speed, it’s vulnerable against enemy AA vehicles and jets.

  • Weapons: 25mm auto-cannon + 105mm cannon
  • Seats: 2 passengers
  • Unlocks: none
  • Other features: can function as drop point

    The AC130 actually has 3 seats and 3 weapons, it has a 40mm cannon as well. Also its worth noting that all guns are pointed at the same objective meaning if a single user is using the AC130 they can fire the 105mm cannon then switch to the 40mm or 25mm and continue shooting without waiting for a reload. Also its location orbital location is determined by the team commander.

    A deployed gunship acts as a spawn point for the entire team, with players immediately occupying one of three gunner positions. Players below may see a “GUNSHIP OVERHEAD” message if they are within its reach.

      I’m pretty sure the commander gets notifications when something locks on and she/he fires the flares. If that is not the case, it is automatic because I know for sure the player doesn’t deploy them

    How do I enter the AC-130? I’ve been playing as commander multiple times now but i just can’t get in. I activate it and see it on the map, but there’s no button or whatsoever to enter it and use it…. :S it also says from the beginning that if I want to go back as a normal player, i have to reconnect to the server.. Sp basically i get kicked out, and have to get back on it. Can anyone help me with an answer please?
    Kind regards!
