This Week in Battlefield V

DICE isn’t even trying to be realistic with these elite skins anymore.

They made an announcement of two new elites, and honestly the British one looks good. It looks pretty realistic for the time. But I have a problem with the German one.

First off, she’s female. (Germans didn’t have female soldiers, get over it. That being said, I like the female French fighter for the allies. This I don’t)

Second, she has a USSR gas mask. Looks to be a shM-41 gas mask. Why would a German elite have a Russian gas mask? She’s definitely German by the name.


Third, she looks like a character from a horror movie. Why is DICE making almost every German elite look like they are a captain America villain?


Now already see it coming.
“If you don’t like it you don’t have to buy it.”

You’re right. But I get to enjoy watching a bunch of female German gimps running around alongside the other ridiculous uniforms. Thanks.

This game should of been battlefield heroes 2. Seriously.

    I've just given up on accuracy/authenticity from these people. Who knows, maybe when the Pacific Theater arrives they'll have pulled their heads out of their bums and made the U.S./Japanese uniforms and elites accurate.

    I suppose the silver lining is that, once again, DICE is charging an exorbitant amount of Boins for these elite skins. Which might mean only a very small minority of players will be using them. So hopefully you won't see them often.

    At first we got ourselves The Phantom of the Opera. And now The Grim Reaper itself is paying us a visit.
    Seriously, it can't be any goofier at this point, can it?

    I mean, my personal thought, she look pretty cool, even thought her design Un-orginal. I dont really mind, but if Elite start too get cartoonie and neon color like CoD, that way too much.

    I've gladly paid 100 USD for every battlefield with premium. I refuse to buy any skins. I'd buy em if it they were like 50 cents each. As is now you could buy them all and all you get is 4 skins sets where as with premium, well everything that comes with bf premium on top multiple pages and tabs of skins for every single weapon, character and vehicle standard to the game.

    It's like they think we will give them more money if they start gutting the game. All I see is less value, less product and less quality all at a higher price

    Still think these skins were designed over a year ago when planners thought BFV would be riding the Fortnite wave. Instead....

    I do not care about realism in elites but all the elite ladies so far look really boring.
    Nothing can top the Irishman and the Phantom guy
    Especially that the Irishman says when you order to defend an objective : "Quit pulling your  [Bleep] and defend this objective!".

    She's just looks like the tank hunter elite from BF1 to me.

    The tank hunter had a realistic respirator and a burlap hood. It was literally a regular uniform with tweaks.

    This is ridiculous.

    I hope you guys understand BF is just a game and no historic simulation.I am really not care how realistic the skins look as long as i can tell to what army the soldier belongs.But lets talk about your realism fetish:In an army the majority of the soldiers is low ranked combat soldiers, means if you want it realistic around 80% have to wear the same uniform.And where to draw the line with the realism?In RL soldiers with the MG 42 was prone, in BF you guys call them campers, better no realism here, right?In RL snipers are camoflaged and hard to spot, in BF many whine about low visibility, also better no realism here.In BF you guys sprint from one end of the map to the other, show me one RL soldier who can sprint that far in full combat gear. When i was in the army just the stuff i had to carry was arround 30 KG.I could go on with the list but you i think you get what i mean.Posts like this, about not realistic soldiers, are just there because you guys want to complain, no matter about what, important is to complain.I am sorry but i can not take posts like this serious.


    Literally every battlefield had limited customization and no one complained. Every soldier looked the same, and it didn’t feel out of place.

    Even with the gameplay mechanics it still felt like a war. This feels like battlefield heroes with updated graphics.

    Yes, people like feeling a little realism with the design.

    This is ridiculous.
    She may look OTT but other than the respirator it's basically the same model. Both have hoods (possibly a different material, though stylistically the same) and are carrying almost matching cosmetic melee weapons and accessories (both have a near-identical knife/pickaxe combo on the left hip and a canteen on the right). I think you're seeing ridiculousness with the character and I'm seeing laziness.

    The Elite skins are just awful. I don't know why anyone would encourage DICE by buying those abominations with real money.

    Realistic and Historical accuracy complain again in a Battlefield game again?

    It's either good or bad looking, if you really want to see a realistic game then i think you might choose a wrong franchise to play.

    Have someone here ever complained about how unaccurate the NVA soldiers are in game like BC2 VN? At the time the NVA fought the US, we do have uniform and we don't have any one eye Sniper either.

    And yet I see no less that 5 in each match, it's nuts to me.
