There's a bug that allows you to get a head start at start of the round. Just drive your tank on reverse and you will be able to get behind enemy objectives while other players are still waiting for the start of the round counter to finish.

This happens at least on Panzerstorm Grand Operations. Please fix it before it becomes an issue.

    yup a guy got hte light tank all the way to A on Arras by reversing and drove over some of the guys in the spawn.

    It should never happen in the first place, like the fact the bipod STILL isn't fixed!

    Its hilarious to watch though
    If a tank did that to me I would be too busy laughing at the sight to be mad

    They all do turn their heads while you drive past them lol.

    But seriously, it needs to be fixed. You can have your whole squad spawn there, right behind the enemies.

    First it was the bombers doing the spawn killing, now it's the tanks :smiley:

    Sometimes I wonder if they do all this on purpose.

    I saw someone decimate the spawn doing this on Arras in Rush. I will use it to gain ground but not to get kills.

    Yep I do this every game in the new grand op. Then spawn kill all the supports with their hammers out spamming Fortifications at the start of the round.

    Only in Battlefield (5)

    Yeah, someone needs to make this into an "Only IN Battlefield" Moment submission.

    It must rely on certain control setting, I've seen people turning around during the pre-round but I can only roll back in a straight line.

    Exploiting a glitch is a violation of EA's terms of service, and you just described yourself doing so. Whether they'd do anything about it is another matter, but still....

    I reported that to devs first day of last patch. I already got an answer telling it's now known and be fixed.

    I have reported it several times too as its been in the game since launch its just now you can be in a tank 30 seconds before the game starts and have plenty of time to get to an op position.

    Yes, I find this very surprising. People complain about cheaters in the game, but then happily admit they’d be willing to exploit an unintended glitch. Talk about hypocrisy!

    Yeah I’m going to point out that pressing reverse in the tank and realising you can reverse and go backwards is not so much exploitation of a glitch as really the fact you can reverse is purely an oversight of the dev team and not a glitch. It’s a pretty massive oversight and damn poor that DICE let it through.

    First time I saw it resulted in my death and many others. Next round at least half the tanks on my team did it. That being said they didn’t use it for cheese road kills. They just used it to get a faster rollout due to the knowledge the other team were doing similar.

    English is a second language to me, so you have to excuse me if I get this wrong, but isn’t an “oversight of the dev team” EXACTLY what a glitch is?

    How are we to know if it's unintended ?
