Binoculars are a piece of equipment featured in the Battlefield series used to call in artillery strikes in Battlefield 1942, spot targets in Battlefield Vietnam, or designate targets for air strikes in the campaign of Battlefield Bad Company 2.

Battlefield 1942Edit

Binoculars

Binoculars in use, looking at an allied Panzer IV.

In Battlefield 1942, Binoculars are issued to the Scout Kit. They are used by the Scout to coordinate targets with allied artillery pieces so that they can fire on the target designated by the Scout. Binoculars also provide a helpful means of spotting targets at distance, such as enemy armor or soldiers.

Battlefield VietnamEdit

In Battlefield Vietnam, Binoculars are issues to every kit except the Engineer in the game. They are used to spot enemy soldiers and vehicles on the field by looking at the target and pressing the fire key to spot them and warn allied players of the threat, as well as tracking their location for a few seconds on the mini-map and all allied players' HUDs if they are in their field of view. This change to binoculars from their previous use was primarily implemented due to the fact that spotting in Battlefield 1942was much more complex with using the function keys.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

Main article: Mortar Strike

In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Preston Marlowe uses Binoculars in the singleplayer campaign during Cold War, Heavy Metal and High Value Target to call in air strikes on a Russian T-90, four 9M133 Kornet positions and a ZU-23-2, respectively. Preston and Sergeant Redford later seen using Preston's binoculars during a cutscene as Bravo Two looks over the Battle of Medellín in Zero Dark Thirty, just before the Scalar Weapon is tested. In-game, they can be accessed with the Q/Select/Back buttons for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, respectively.


Battlefield 4Edit

TBINOS

The Tactical Visor (dubbed the Tactical Binos) is a gadget featured in the Singleplayer Campaign of Battlefield 4, used by holding Spot/Commorose. It can be used to mark all enemies within its sight as well as explosive objects. Mission objectives and weapon crates will also be displayed.

In multiplayer, the PLD can be used like binoculars, although its main purpose is for laser designation.

A bug in Battlefield 4 for PC may cause the Tactical Visor to be unusable if the player uses the "Click to Zoom" Gameplay option. The option must be set to "Hold to Zoom".


Battlefield 1Edit

The Trench Periscope is a gadget issued to the Scout class in Battlefield 1. Taking the form of a pair of periscope binoculars, the gadget's primary use is to automatically spot any enemies within the scope's zoomed-in field of view. Uniquely, the periscope allows for observation when in cover, or to see over obstacles at head-height.


TriviaEdit

  • In Battlefield 4, the Tactical Visor shares the same model as the PLD in multiplayer.
  • A bug in Battlefield 4 for PC may cause the Tactical Visor to be unusable if the player uses the "Click to Zoom" Gameplay option. The option must be set to "Hold to Zoom".
