Battlefield 4 radio beacon overview and tips
The Battlefield 4 radio beacon can be placed on most surfaces on the map, and will emit a continuous beep as long as it’s deployed. This means that any nearby enemies will be able to hear it and destroy it. Therefore, it’s always a good idea to place the radio beacon some distance away from the capture points or the main combat area. This will also minimize the chance of an enemy camping in front of the radio beacon and spawn killing players as they appear.
