The UH-1Y Venom can be seen in the Battlefield 3 Teaser Trailer. The UH-1Y Venom can also be seen in the Operation Firestorm trailer. In game, It is available in Conquest on Operation Firestorm and also available to the US while playing Rush in Caspian Border as seen in the Caspian Border Rush walkthrough. It is also in the Rush version of Noshahr Canals. The Venom reappears on Gulf of Oman and Wake Island 2014 on the USS Essex, being able to spawn on in Conquest.
The UH-1Y Venom appears in the campaign mission Fear No Evil. It appears to evacuate Team Misfit and the nuke they found in the bank.
It also appears in Fire from the Sky as two of them transport Warrior 2-1 in and out of the mission area.
In multiplayer, the Venom is the USMC's air transport, capable of seating five players. Along with the pilot, two players can operate door-mounted miniguns, and two other players can use their personal equipment, such as the Repair Tool when the helicopter is taking damage. Air transports have a higher tolerance for damage, catching fire only after they are down to 33% health. The Venom can fill two roles. It can transport multiple units and can be a potent killer due to its two miniguns.
A tactic that is commonly used is to have two engineers in passenger seats so if the helicopter has been disabled the operators will not need to land the helicopter due to the fact it can be repaired in midair similar to the scout helicopters. And when the helicopter doesn't need repairing, they can fire out the sides of the vehicle with their rockets and primary weapon, adding to the already potent killing potential that the Venom has.
- The Battlelog icon shows it with closed windows and rocket pods not available in game.
- The UH-1Y pilot in Baku has the call sign of Hawkins and is female, just like Jennifer Hawkins, another female pilot in Battlefield 3.
