Battlefield 4 Night Operations Next Month

EA reveals Night Operations, a new DLC pack for Battlefield 4 coming next month as a free download for owners of the military shooter sequel (thanks Gamer's Hell). This trailer shows off the nighttime gameplay this involves, and here are highlights of the planned release:
ZAVOD: GRAVEYARD SHIFT
Battlefield 4™ Night Operations includes the new map Zavod: Graveyard Shift, a night version of Zavod 311. When the old Russian tank factory is shrouded in darkness the tactics change drastically.

TACTICAL GAMEPLAY
Get a tactical advantage by using night vision scopes, flares and other gadgets to reveal the enemy positions, or by destroying light sources such as lamps.

GAME MODES
Zavod: Graveyard Shift supports the following game modes: Conquest, Rush, Obliteration, and the infantry focused game modes Team Death Match, Domination and Gun Master.

This game mode would be cool if it didn't just incentivize everyone using IRNV scopes. Those scopes are a pain even on regular maps. Really wish they had never added them. Imagine playing a map where you could hide int he shadows, look for muzzle flashes, and use flashlights. None of that will ever happen because everyone will just use the IRNV scopes. :/

Yeah that's why I liked the original BF2. You had a class to pick and you used what came with that class to the best of your ability. The Special Forces expansion was pretty fun too, since I think there was night vision goggles, but they did not highlight the enemy. Plus grappling hooks.

Yeah, this was pretty cool until the trailer reminded us of night vision googles/scopes. Essentially, you'll be useless unless you have that kit.

Yeah that was always my problem with the night map in BF3, everyone just used IRNV. Hell a ton of people just use them in day maps even.

It's nice to see support and free content update for this game still, even though there is a newer BF game is out and another comes in a few months. It's not something we see often these days with AAA titles.

Indeed.
Although we're concerned about night vision, it's still nice of them to release this

Servers should just ban the IRNV from being equippable on a Night map, if they even have the possibility.

You can't unfortunately. You can ban weapons in a very clumsy way through plugins but not attachments. Or at least I've never found a way, if anyone has one that would be awesome. An admin can sit around banning people he sees using one but that's about it.

Has anyone seen this trick in BF and other similar games where players eject out of a jet, kill their follower, then land back in the plane? I've seen a bunch of looping gifs on Reddit showing players pulling off this difficult move. Is there a name for this?

I hate to say it, but this is actually becoming a thing now, in BF4, because of youtube, twitch, etc.

People were doing it occasionally even back in BF1942, but now every jackass is trying it, explaining all the unmanned planes flying off into the wild blue yonder on their own on most servers.

Not sure what you'd call it though, Plane Eject Rocket Kill Jump back in your own Plane-ing?

Variations: Use C4, Sniper rifle to kill enemy pilot, then land in their plane, etc.

Aside from that, I'm somewhat interested in the BF4 night maps, I'll probably start BF4-ing again after I finish Dying Light.

It might be a jackass move but you have to admit it's pretty cool, not to mention very difficult to pull off.

I think this is what you are seeking.

It's very cool, but the success rate for even great players is probably 1 in 20. Unskilled players never accomplish it and just waste jets, hence all the unmanned jets flying around. Of course it has been a month or so since I've played, so maybe that's calmed down a bit.

Just thought of a name for it. Leapfrogging.

What do you think?

What's funny is that I was one of the first to do it in BF1942, and then again in the DC mod. It's actually pretty common in Planetside 2. If you're looking for a name, it's called the Dead Man's Switch.

(that's not the PS2 term for it, but it's what we, "the originators," referred to it as)

I guess that settles it. Let's call it Rendezook. Smash

It would never happen even if they remove IRNV, just constantly spotting has the same impact unless its a "classic" game that doesn't put the orange marker on the enemy.

Doubt many servers would run those options simply because teams would end up being mostly snipers or DMRs hiding in bushes. It's already an issue in the sense that we've all played games where half the opposition is hiding on roofs making it easy for the other side to dominate in no time.

IMHO, this game lives because of the lack of alternatives. UT4 will take forever, Doom is in the distant future and Overwatch is Overwatch. That leaves us with Battlefront (Toxikk never got any love and is pretty much DOA). UT4 is slowly moving into the Toxikk realm, slow progress drove the people away. Only 2 official maps after all this time. I'm no expert but, i assumed that remaking all the maps and game modes with the new engine and adding sli support would've been easy.

The dead horse metaphor doesn't apply here when the game still has more players than hardline, which was released a few months ago.
