To all the stuka fans, we get to continue terrorizing the battlefield in BF2042!

Colon3lCrunch

All good til that stinger locks on and you don't have any defense.


def11879

Good luck locking on! Much less heat profile from a prop engine Edit: should’ve said piston engine, turboprops are a thing


cable787

you forget the tracer dart exists


shashlik_king

Please tell me there’s tracer darts in the new battlefield


cable787

not sure about the main game but in the portal mode the tracer dart from bad company 2 is shown off it's used as a lock on tag in BC2 you could also fire it at people and lock onto them with a rocket launcher


GuardianSlayer

Good. Perfectly balanced.


dampmaky

As all things should be


evolvedspice

They are you can see one being used to lock onto a stuka in the portal video they released today


MildlyHumanWasTaken

I thought that was a Spitfire


Archeronn

it is


cable787

I meant you could also fire it at fleshy targets and take them out with a lock on but yeah it was stuck onto a plane


deltaWhiskey91L

>you could also fire it at fleshy targets Always the most entertaining way to countersnipe


easyodds2

They really shouldn’t have any problem. Piston engines are plenty hot.


AlecW11

Not hot enough.


DJ283

Uh... yes it is? Basic racing V8's will see EGT's over 1200 right out of the head, let alone a V12 plane engine. https://blog.aopa.org/aopa/2016/10/19/temperature-temperature-temperature/ >Our piston aircraft engines are heat engines. They have moving parts—notably exhaust valves and valve guides—that are continually exposed to extremely high temperatures in the vicinity of 1,500°F and sometimes hotter.


easyodds2

Yeah they are. I have seen those types of missiles target and track on stove top coil units. They are plenty sensitive enough to track a piston engine plane. And modern ones don’t solely rely on exhaust temps for tracking anymore.


HanSolo12P

Then how did the USAF/USN do trials on the *first ever* heat seekers with QF-6f drones?


Snakepoo_5456

um propped planes? wow that is an encouraging feature to look forward to. think i'll just avoid this game like I've bin avoidin the last 2 shit products. was it only bf'42 that aircraft carrier could be moved. dice yawl went to shit


YBOR_

Why are you even in this subreddit?


JediMastaObi

They’ve most definitely got some kind of advantage or something. I think you gotta stop hating and enjoy more. I have a feeling you just couldn’t handle the time periods of the last two not the actual game.


Canadian_dalek

*stinger can't lock due to lack of exhaust trail*


CelticTiger21

The missile will get there and suddenly dissolve from the sheer awesomeness that is the Stuka.


ario3831

chad stuka enjoyer VS virgin stinger user


MrThi1

More like Chad AA-Guys vs Virgin Pilots


juviniledepression

More like Chad pilots vs chad AA-guys. Screw those virgin tank players tho.


MrThi1

I can live with that.


remember2staycalm

Shieeeet


omgitsduane

This must have been good for stuka pilots during the war.


mus1CK_Rx

Not only you don’t have any defense. We don’t even know if DICE is going to have the missile warning for WW2 planes haha


bdragon304

I think you'll realize it. When you have crashed


blazetrail77

Battlefield needs maneuvers so you can dodge missiles. But aircraft speed in general is too slow for it.


hiredk11

you can dodge missles in bf3 and bf4


blazetrail77

By using the terrain but not by any high g turns


Moofooist765

You won’t ever out G a missile at the ranges they’re fired at in battlefield though, you’d need larger maps if you want more realistic air combat, because missile ranges easily extend to the 30-50km range.


Harm-Jan16

Luckily its a sandbox mode. So weapon balance is more important. Mg42 vs m249


neauxno

The mg42 is still in use today as the mg3 so balance WOULDNT effect that matchup too much


miziidris

128p. You can imagine how many stingers will be on the ground.


loveandmonsters

0 just like now when an enemy attack heli is thrashing our team in BF4. Although 80 when I get into an air vehicle heh


rayleo02

You've got the mg34


Jonreadbeard

Lol, stinger. I'm coming with the SMAW my dude!


jojowarz

Well boys, Wehrmacht vs The red army in Tsaritsyn, we finally get our Russian DLC


sterrre

Not at launch. We don't know yet if bf1 will be included in portal but they could add it. Bf1 maps wouldn't need to be rebuilt like the 1942 maps.


sonofnutcrackr

They said it would be battlefield 1942 that is getting remastered for this, with HD graphics, but I think that’s just to avoid the “battlefield V bad” stigma. Many of the models for the germans looked exactly like they do in BFV, and the scene of the American soldiers getting gunned down by a helicopter was ripped right from one of the pacific expansion trailers. In conclusion, It wouldn’t make sense for them NOT to use the HD models that are already available in BFV, but the’re saying battlefield 1942 because “battlefield V = bad”. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.


sterrre

The maps and the class archetypes are from 1942. The models are from bfv. Bfv was in the same era and shared a lot of weapons, vehicles and other equipment with bf1942. I do wonder if they made the panzerschreck though.


M18HellcatTD

The panzerschreck is most likely a BFV model; iirc dataminers found the model for it in the files.


neauxno

The german soldiers looked like skins from 1942 (for example the medic backpack)


BathroomShotgunDave

Pls dice add bf1 stuff and make it so we can build fortifications in portal if it's not in the base game


sterrre

I just want to play horses vs robot dogs.


neauxno

MarkV vs m1a3


LancesYouAsCavalry

SAME lolz


ArmouredBear013

What is BF Portal? I saw the trailer and it looks brilliant but rather ridiculous


sterrre

It's like battlefields version of Halo MCC and forge. They remastered parts of bf1942, bad company 2 and bf3. And they created a very customizable game mode editor that you can use to throw it all together, it even has a logic editor that you can use if you want. Bf portal comes with 6 remastered maps, 6 factions and their class archetypes, 40+ weapons, 40+ vehicles and 30+ gadgets from past games. You can use the game editor to pick and choose what you want on your server from the past games and from the 2042 content. 13 maps in total.


ArmouredBear013

That is seriously cool! Is that gonna be included in the game at launch? Or is it gonna be a paid DLC?


M18HellcatTD

Released at launch. I don't even think they're doing content DLC like they did before, Im pretty sure they keeping live service so it doesn't fracture the player base. Sure microtransactions and all that but no major content behind the pay wall. Could be wrong.


Wiganer2606

Inject this straight into my fucking veins


DemWafflez

I am so confused and excited.


Blitzzz_

Stuka vs a10 will be a thing. Their fight will be legendary.


InsertClevergamertag

50 stukas vs 10 a10s could be cool. stuka would not stand a chance but it would be fun


OutdatedMeme09

The a10 is not a dog fighting plane and it would have to slow down for the stukas which would be much better in theory at dogfighting (even though again that's not their designed role) so they may have a chance


InsertClevergamertag

a10 is much faster then the stuka and only a couple of 30mm would shred a stuka. it would just do boom and zoom and shred them. also the a10 is a very tough plane and the stuka guns would not do much.


ANGLVD3TH

While faster, it's far less maneuverable. An unseen Warthog might be scary, but they should be able to light it up and avoid its fire much easier. It will be like swatting black flies, one good hit will mess them up but getting that hit will be hard, all the while they are killing you with a thousand cuts.


4U2PRO

Well, the best way is to find out in-game. I'm so fucking excited.


DM_ME_UR_FISH

[new BF2042 portal trailer](https://youtu.be/q4qWMcQfOCc)


dieadam

Duuuuude! Are us ww2 fans gonna get to keep playing in 2042?! 😬


DM_ME_UR_FISH

Hell yeah man, time to kill f-35s in a spitfire lol


vaporizer012

Hell yeah let's blitzkrieg in a m1a1 abrams


TheKingOfSkwirls

If gun doesn’t work, use more gun


vaporizer012

Yes, if the top mounted 50. Cal won't do it a apfsheds shell will do


TheKingOfSkwirls

Yeee


Mebbwebb

Good chance all the unused assets might get included in that mode.


Brodom93

Hoping to see some era exclusive servers!


Unlucky-Goal-9021

Ya! That's what I'm kinda hoping for.


INFsleeper

Why hoping? You can make it yourself :) I can guarantee there will be a healthy number of people playing in hardcore WW2 only servers


iceleel

There's gonna be official playlists so there's probably gonna be premade presets for conquest with 1 game equipment for each.


Bioleague

its battlefield 1942 not battlefield BFV so it will not be what you are used to, it will be better since its actually ww2 focused


punspower3

In custom games yeah not official


InsertClevergamertag

im exited to mow down nazis with a m249


Reasonable_Specific8

I can't see the video


thisismynewacct

Needs more BFV launch JU88A


xxrealist

"Hey Stuka, meet my friend Gustav"


Soldierhero1

God i hope they kept the mosquito with 6 pounder in it. Fucking rip tanks


DM_ME_UR_FISH

Sadly it isn’t in the release of this new portal mode. But maybe in a future update they might add it. [Check jackfrags new video for some more info about this. ](https://youtu.be/QypWGkr7diY)


TheLoneHussar

Wait, this is REAL?!


ian2345

It was true...it sounded impossible but...it was all true


Rando3278

RRRRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEENNNNNEEEEEEOOOOWWWMMMMMMM *crashes into ground*


ForgedBlade

Valentine AA tank maybe??? It'd be nice to have something more powerful than the bf4 AA tanks.


TheNameIsFrags

The MAA in BF4 was probably the most powerful incarnation of the AA in Battlefield history


hiredk11

those bloody 'late' lock on missles terrorizing the sky


TheNameIsFrags

Ugh passive radar missiles… the worst


Spudtron98

Didn't get flak though.


lucaalvz

The funniest thing is that there are Wehrmacht uniforms more accurate in this game's trailer than that other game about WW2 that should not be named.


Crabman169

You do realise that the uniform worn by the Germans in this Portal is literally what's in bfv right?


TheTeletrap

To be fair, those uniforms were only added in during the last summer update. A kinda “here’s everything you wanted earlier” type deal.


Crabman169

That actual bit of kit has been there for the Germans since day one just didn't have insignia


TheTeletrap

Ah right, they just kept it in the campaign for some odd reason.


iceleel

Oh no uniform is 10 % too dark MUH IMMERTSION


lucaalvz

It's isn't even about immersion, It's about the game setting, you can't make your game or story in a specific setting and do something that completely goes against the setting, like putting Laser Guns in a Cowboy game, it's moronic, unless your setting is an Alternate History then that's fine, but to create a mixed mess that makes Historian's eyes bleed and squirm, I'd rather not do anything


Crabman169

So you must not be talking about bf then


DiCePWNeD

wehraboos and reenactcels BTFO


punspower3

https://youtu.be/QypWGkr7diY Jackfrags explains this here


bipolit

Stuka blyat


BobsYaMothersBrother

Sooooo…. There is time travel? Is that what’s going on? What’s with the modern defib soldiers fighting ww2 knifey bois? I’m excited


N_Meister

It’s a custom sandbox mode that lets you mix and match content from BF1942, Bad Company 2, BF3 and BF2042.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Mikey_MiG

Yeah, but there's naturally not going to be a ton of WWII content given that it's only part of this one mode.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Mikey_MiG

There's a list on JackFrags newest vid with all the confirmed vehicles. It's not everything from BFV, but quite a lot of it, along with a couple of vehicles that weren't in BFV like the B-17 bomber and M10 Wolverine.


N_Meister

My money’s on them porting over more stuff as we go along BF2042’s lifespan. Heck, it’d be surprising if they didn’t continue supporting BF Portal in whatever follows 2042. ...Though that may just be me wishing for BF1 content.


Mikey_MiG

According to Tom Henderson (so take this with a grain of salt), DICE is planning to release two 2042 maps and two Portal maps per season.


Jimmysmo27

Think Halo: Forge if you’ve played or hear of that before


iceleel

MUH HISTORICAL accuracy. My grandpa died for this.


thorbenpouwels

Wait until you meet my fliegerfaust. You won’t terrorise me😜


ifellbutitscool

Wait the stuka has fans??


EndercometYT

I hope that the other tanks currently in this game such as the Valentine and LVT could be added to 2042


DaniMacYo

This whole new mode is freaking incredible. I don’t know if I’ll play much of the normal 2042 now lol.


BArhino

oh hey they finally got the German skins right!


lrrp_moar

TBH I'd love a super tucano in the game!


cable787

hear me out a team of a10's no rocket pods main gun only vs. a team of stingers


Markosoft_EXE

Dies this mean we will see günter in 2042?


Penguin_Boii

Cant wait to hear the siren go off as I freak out


Therealmicahbell

I can’t wait for like 20 stukas vs 3 futuristic jets.


Pineappl3pizza

now reality can be whatever i want


unit_101010

this is fucking insane. can't wait.


Captain-J-Dreadful

Lmfaooo imagine you and the boys are riding around your M1A2 2024 and you hear the *Forbidden Siren*


Slimmzli

I cried when I saw the bad company 2 stuff


pm_your_tits69420

Time travel tf???? Im so fucking confused right now


TheNameIsFrags

It’s a giant sandbox mode just for fun. You can play on maps from BF1942, BC2, and BF3 and mix/match vehicles, weapons, and armies from those eras.


pm_your_tits69420

Thats so fucking cool ngl


nebo8

And you can script your own gamemode, so for example you can make your own gunmaster or create an infestation mode,...


pm_your_tits69420

Holy shit thing just got way fucking better although i dont see this being very useful for the console player but unless its like a super easy way to code now i really need a good pc


nebo8

The "program" that create custom gamemode will be web based and free, so anyone with a web browser and an EA account can use the tool


hiredk11

it's not coding, it's more like scripting with diagrams - still quite hard on console probably


tominaut

No, not just for fun. Its a main mode now on :D atleast for me :D


TheNameIsFrags

Hahaha I feel that. Oddly enough I’m most looking forward to regular BC2/BF3 matches? No weird stuff. A nice normal Caspian or Noshahr match sounds so perfect


sterrre

It's a like Halo MCC forge but for battlefield. Remastered 1942, bf3 and bfbc2 all thrown together in a game editor along with bf2042.


Sparris_guy

Wonder if japan will be available for 1942 some time, and if they get the color of the uniforms right then.


R4PTR_J3SUS

More like get terrorized, Stuka is my favorite to fight against in my VA.


juviniledepression

Favorite fight are VAs in my Stuka, great fun to have the cat and mouse game.


ItsJinxDuh

Germans with kabars, battlefield got a second chance to make Germans right and still failed. This mode looks so fucking good though, gonna be very fun. I can't wait.


McCretin

nyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOUGH


MrSecurityStalin

We better get a way to counter them as infantry too.


whyamihereWSB

This made me so happy when I saw it lol stuka4life


ToxicGamer77

That's so cool


willtron3000

One better, apparently the B17 is in. BIG BOI.


ifcrabsdied

Cant even begin to express my excitement for this game!!


Magic_Medic

Can someone explain to me in short words what BF Portal actually is?


sterrre

It's like battlefields version of Halo MCC and forge. They remastered parts of bf1942, bad company 2 and bf3 and they created a game editor for it. Bf Portal comes with 6 remastered maps, 40+ weapons, 40+ vehicles, 30+ gadgets and 6 factions with their class archetypes and it can all be mixed together or you could play them as remasters. You could play as the German Wermacht from WW2, on the 2042 map Orbital against bf3 Russia. You can customize which weapons and gadgets each faction can use, so you could give the Germans modern weapons and limit the Russians to using knifes. Or you can create a game mode that is only eod bots and robo dogs. The game editor will let you customize and create entirely new game modes using maps, factions vehicles and weapons from all across the battlefield universe. You can add ai and set limits to how many players and ai are on each team.


oakleyman23

Basically gives you the ability to be the game builder/developer with easy mode toggles to make your own multiplayer experience. Even more simply, portal is a sandbox, you have all the toys and can place things how you want, and make the portal matches infinitely different until your hearts content.


CoryDeRealest

Tbh this is gunna be so fucking sick, I can’t wait to make 1 tap damage enemies, and just Rambo it up😂


AniiiOptt

I thought this was photoshopped until I saw the fucking trailer. Holy shit.


Trollider76

At first i thought i was photoshoped but i was so wrong Bro WTF IS BATTLEFIELD


AdZang

A fun sandbox shooter :) The main point of this mode is to give poetic freedom to the community so that they can enjoy whatever game they want. It should not be confused with the original game mode of conquest and stuff that only takes place in BF2042 setting.


Jive_turkey34

You don’t terrorize it now


Correct_Assumption

Hopefully assaults get an actually viable anti air weapon or else itll just be a repeat or b5 with pilots going 60-0


iceleel

Fingers crossed for fliegerfaust


QuacksterJones

I hope they mash in BF1 and BFV content as well. Having battlefield 1942 content is cool, but it would be way more practical to literally just port over the models from those 2 games and call it a day instead of remaking a whole bunch of guns and vehicles. I’m expecting a lot of the 1942 models to just be the Battlefield V ones anyways.


iceleel

All guns confirmed for "BF1942" are from BFV lol


QuacksterJones

I meant the weapons that were exclusively “I’ve only played 1942 once, correct me if some are in that game” in battlefield five. The grease gun, BAR, maybe even the type 2, but I doubt anyone wants to see more of that one.


Wumbosix

Game mode idea stingers vs stukas, I would want to see how that would play out


Edominow

Jericho horns intensifies


Boomboi9999

Ok so future soldiers blasting away and the out of no where a 100 year old plane starts dive bombing you marking that infamous noise


GeneralCraft65

What the hell did i miss


Bioleague

this is not the BFV stuka.. its bf 1942


Snakepoo_5456

wow humanity actually saved enough gas to last to the year 2042 huh? and here I thought humanity was a needy greedy whiny species, wait, yawl are mental cases off yer meds


jojo_part6_fan_

It's going to be interesting to see a stuka keep up with a SU-57 on full afterburner


Kbrand86

Until someone glides in and gtas your asses lol


HeartFederal1966

we're going to mess like in BFV


FuzeJokester

You think a stuka is gonna be faster and deadlier than a modern plane? I like the confidence tbh


DM_ME_UR_FISH

Yeah but does a modern plane have those cool jericho trumpets?


easily_tilted

'Bout to be terrorized by jets yourself


thot_chocolate420

Finally… I can continue to die to 76mm Shermans and Tiger 1s in battlefield2042.


Founntain

Terrorizing? Mostly thosw explode on the ground after flying past me lol


sebosvj

I am calling it: the story mode will be time traveling and going to WW2 to stop future nazis helping WW2 nazis.


MariusWRN

How do i use the Stuka effectively? For me its too slow Just dont know how to use the Stuka right.


josefikrakowski_

So Gunter will be in 2042? Fuck yeah


fuzz-carton89

This just made my day one my favorite planes going to still be service in 2042


WM9_

Anyone else just wondering why? Like seriously…. Why?


AFuckingGayWeeb

What’s wrong with it?
