Battlefield 3: The Jeep C4 Attack

Interactive environment: it’s one of the biggest  reasons I prefer the Battlefield series to the Call of Duty franchise.  You can actually destroy buildings your opponents are hiding in (or blow a hole in a wall and enter through it, instead of walking through the door as they are expecting you to do).  Plus: it’s just more dramatic that way.  Why walk through the front door?  You do that in real life every day.  On Battlefield, you make your own front door.. with an RPG.

One of the more creative things you can do in Battlefield 3 is strap C4 onto a vehicle and ram it into an opponent (or even a team mate if you prefer being that annoying player).  Jeeps are probably the most popular vehicle for this job.  Simply strap on some C4 to your Jeep and drive it into an opposing tank.  However, remember to partially encircle and flank the tank so as to take it by surprise, because driving straight for the tank isn’t a great idea.  This video does a pretty good job of explaining how to  “Jihad a Jeep” (as hardcore gamers refer to it).

The reference describes using something of value (a perfectly good Jeep, a plane, etc.) as the delivery vehicle in the application of high explosives.  In the BF3 battlefield, sometimes you gotta go to great lengths in order to capture that flag or wipe out an enemy’s squad (so they won’t spawn in your area of operation).

Taking out a tank is no joke.  Even if you’re equipped with the Engineer class of weapons, facing off with a tank can be tremendously hazardous to your health, especially if the tank’s driver knows what he’s doing.  And if you’re an Assault or Recon class, you’re left with very few lame options – 1.) run away, 2.) lob a grenade then run away, or 3.) hide and hope either the tank leaves or someone with the right equipment appears to deal with the armored menace.  The Support class, on the other hand, with his handy C4 and ammo box, can be a tank’s worst nightmare.  Reason: two C4 charges can blow up a tank with a quickness (and the Support class guy can sneak up behind a tank when the driver is preoccupied battling another tank).

I have personally been blown up by many a Support class guys while operating a tank.  From a tank driver’s point of view, they’re hard to spot especially if they’re adept at blind-siding tanks.  Naturally, gamers have found using a Jeep laced with C4 to be an effective, creative, and fun, way to attack tanks. Battlefield 3: it’s a wonderful, beautiful game.

The above video provides a great step-by-step on how to weaponize any wheeled vehicle and rock your enemy’s tank forces, even down to exactly when to jump out and trigger your Jeep as you make your final approach.   Enjoy.
