Any of you Battlefield 1 players miss SLAM Traps from Battlefield 4? Well, like it or not, players have discovered how to pull off a similar maneuver in the newest Battlefield installment.
Originating in Battlefield 4, the SLAM Trap maneuver involved one player placing SLAM mines on a teammate’s dirt bike, and then having that teammate drive past enemy tanks to blow them up. In servers without friendly fire, bikers could take out numerous tanks without any risk to themselves. The action is demonstrated and joked about in this episode of Battlefield Friends:
Fast forward (or backward?) to Battlefield 1, players have discovered a way to replicate the move, despite the absence of sticky explosives. This is performed by placing AT mines on destructible boxes and then driving through them so the mines land on one’s motorcycle.
The move in shown off in a recent video by YouTuber DANNYonPC. While the strategy seems technically more similar to SLAM Trapping in principle, DANNYonPC equates it to Battlefield 4‘s C4 Jeep trick, which involved loading up a jeep with C4 and then ghost riding it toward an enemy, denoting the explosives once it passed close enough.
In other Battlefield 1 news, a host of bug fixes and netcode tweaks are currently active on the game’s CTE, with most of the changes expected to hit the main game in the April update.
