Battlefield 4 UH-1Y VenomThe Battlefield 4 UH-1Y Venom (or Super Huey) is a transport helicopter used by the US faction in Battlefield 4 multiplayer. The UH-1Y Venom can seat up to 5 soldiers — one pilot and 4 passengers. Two of the passengers have access to miniguns, making the Venom / Huey somewhat effective against enemy ground troops. The Battlefield 4 UH-1Y Venom (or Huey) was first featured in the series in BF3. It’s similar in function to the UH-60 Black Hawk.

The UH-1Y Venom was first introduced in 2001 and entered service in 2008 with the US Marine Corps. It’s based on the Bell UH-1N Twin Huey, and can be armed with additional rocket pods for the pilot. A faster transport helicopter can be found in the AH-6J Little Bird.

    how about [when in the passenger seat in the huey] and you want to jump out there is an option when the helicopter is close to the ground to rappel out. not when he is 500ft up but when the helicopter is about 50ft from the ground a sentence appears on the screen that says rappel out and if you hit the exit button ropes come down from the side of the heli and you come out.thats just my cool fantasy opinion on another way to come out of the helicopter rather than just senselessly jumping out.

    How is it they have managed to have 2 games (BF3 and 4) that “reward” the pilot with team kills if some idiot jumps out of the helicopter and dies? I love flying them in game, but get frustrated when I am kicked for team kills i didn’t do.
