Battlefield 4 Field Upgrades


Battlefield 4 field upgradesBattlefield 4 Field Upgrades are squad-based in-game unlocks which can be earned and used during a match. Field upgrades in Battlefield 4 are squad based, and the better the squad performs, the more powerful upgrades they get. There are several different paths that players can chose when it comes to Battlefield 4 Field Upgrades, from offensive, to defensive, to support, etc. Each player can chose a different patch, depending on his play style. If a squad is eliminated in the match (everyone is dead at the same time), some of the progress will be lost.

Battlefield 4 Field Upgrades list

There are several groups and types of Battlefield 4 Field Upgrades, from offensive, to defensive, etc. When spawning, players can chose their path. The field upgrades are reset after each match — every new round, all squads start at the bottom and work their way up again. Completing certain objectives and following orders from the Commander results in faster upgrades. Here’s the list of known field upgrades:

  • Defensive: Armor – Cover – Flak – Quick regen
  • Offensive: Print – Ammo – Grenades – Reduced Fall
  • Shadow: Quick unspot – Sprint – Reduced Fall – Stealth
  • Combat Medic: Medkit upgrade – Sprint – Defibrillator – Medical Unit
  • Grenadier: Grenades – Sprint – 40mm grenades – Flak
  • Anti-tank: Mines – Rockets – More deployed explosives – Flak
  • Mechanic: Fast repair – Flak – Cover – Repair unit
  • Indirect fire: Ammo box upgrade – Ammo – Indirect fire – Resupply unit
  • Perimeter defense: Ammo – SuppressionClaymores – MP-APS
  • Spec Ops: Stealth – C4 ExplosivesMotion sensors – Quick unspot
  • Sniper: Hold breath – Cover – Quick Unspot – Advanced spot

    I have recently unlocked the support perimeter defense on battlefield 4 although I have no idea why I cant seem to use it or install it on my load out. My assault class has all of them unlocked and I can use them just fine.Is there anything else that I may of miss or need to do to use it? Thank you for your help.

    When the game first came out any one with indirect fire or perimeter support enabled would immediately freeze their game on spawn. Instead of fixing this problem (yet) dice simply removed both from the game. Lame, but hopefully the fix is coming soon.

    I didn’t even know about the perimeter defense until last nights game. I planted a claymore and another one appeared in my hand, i planted that one and another. I thought it was a bug but, i went to the customize screen after that match ended and read the perimeter defense and noticed that you get 3 claymores! Only to my displeasure to find that it wouldn’t work again… I spent the entire rest of the evening and sacrificed a bunch of kills trying to get it to work and to no avail… It made me disgusted with the class which is my favorite. Until that glitch i was fine but, after using the upgrade it sucks to not have it anymore.

    What does it mean when it says field upgrade lost. It keeps happening when i die?

      I’m assuming it means you’re the only one in your squad, if your entire squad dies you loose your rank for that specialization.

    They can put a man on the moon but you folks can’t make a game that keeps cheaters and hackers out. They absolutely ruin a very good game and take the fun right out of it.
