I’m not the best Battlefield 4 player around. But I ain’t the worst either.
But I struggle with those choppers. And it pisses me off. They’re so damned cool to use. The feeling of spreading havoc with choppers is amazing. It’s just a shame that it happens so rarely…
There’s only one thing to do: practise, and get better.
Luckily, an almost endless source of BF4 chopper guides, tips and tricks exists. And that source is YouTube.
We, the aspiring chopper pilots, can learn everything we need to know to become pilot aces simply by studying the clips other, skilled players have uploaded.
I’ve collected some of the best video guides below. Some are primarily for PC gamers, others for players operating on consoles.
The common denominator for these videos is that you can learn a little something from them, no matter which platform you’re flying on.
