Battlefield 4 Stinger


Battlefield 4 StingerThe Battlefield 4 Stinger (or FIM-92 Stinger) is an unlockable anti-air rocket launcher used by the Engineer class. The Stinger in Battlefield 4 is one of only two portable, shoulder-fired anti-air rocket launchers in the game, the other being the Russian IGLA. The Battlefield 4 Stinger is well suited against all aerial vehicles, including jets, UAVs, and helicopters. Players can carry 3 missiles as standard, which can be expanded to 6 with the “explosives” specialization.

The FIM-92 Stinger entered service in the early 1980s for the US military, and has been used all over the world. The Stinger was first featured in BF3, where it was also unlocked by the Engineer class in multiplayer. It has a great range and can often track enemy aircraft across the map.

Battlefield 4 Stinger tips

To effectively use the Battlefield 4 Stinger against enemy aircraft, keep an eye out for jets and helicopters dropping flares. If you fire too early, the flares will distract the missile. Often, it’s best to lock on and wait until flares are dropped, then lock on again and fire the Stinger. Another strategy is to wait until enemy AA or jets have hit the aircraft first, which means you’ll likely be able to get one-hit kill.

    It cant track air vehicles ”across the map”. Its range is 400m. That is really short versus airvehicles that can spot+Rape you from far beyond that range.

    Stingers are useless on PC BF3.

      Worked fine on BF3. And I believe he meant that it will go across map after being fired.

    Mistake in the ammo count here too!

    And I do agree that we get raped by air vehicles from far. Like a chopper hovering from 700m away from the map… Or a indestructible jet firing missiles at you going low speed from far or high in the sky… IGLA and Stinger should be able to prevent this from happening… But unfortunately it doesn’t.

    The only way to take them down is to jump in an air vehicule yourself, that is if you are good enough, to take them down… Or at least keep them busy while you team can breathes.
