Bf4 Safe Raiding Assignment

For other similar vehicles, see UAV (Disambiguation)

A Small Unmanned Air Vehicle (SUAV) or Miniature UAV is an aircraft that may be man-portable, but still considerably larger than a Micro Air Vehicle. SUAVs monoplanes are typically launched by throwing or slingshot, and continue flying on their own.

SUAVs designed to carry lethal payloads are referred to as Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles.

Battlefield 4Edit




The SUAV is a gadget for the Recon kit featured in Battlefield 4: China Rising. It is a small monoplane fitted with a monochrome camera and a laser designator. It is unlocked upon the completion of the Safe Raiding assignment.

By maintaining heading towards a vehicle target, the on-board laser designator can mark targets for guided weaponry. The SUAV also has an on board motion sensor on it, similar to the MAV.

Once thrown, the operator immediately takes remote control of the SUAV. Though its endurance is limited, it is much longer than most other time-limited gadgets and weapons, perhaps a few minutes. Its average airspeed is 20 meters per second. Unlike the MAV, the SUAV's monoplane design and forward-facing camera prevent it from loitering for too long in any one area. After each use another SUAV will regenerate after a relatively short time.

The SUAV has lethal capabilities. Crashing directly into an enemy player will kill them and count as a roadkill. This is useful for taking out enemies at long distances while remaining in a safe spot.

Like other laser designators, its red beam is easily seen by those in its path, which makes it easily detectable.

  • The SUAV used to be capable of roadkilling enemy infantry. However, after the 17th of December update this was patched to stop people from exploiting it's use.
    • Prior to it being patched, the SUAV would fail to explode on impact with players, allowing the operator to potentially chain many kills from a single flight.
      • However, it is still possible to kill allies with the SUAV when playing on hardcore mode.


Assignment 7 -Mother Of All Bombs

Prerequisite - Safe Raiding

On the China Rising Maps there is a trailer that will show a plane on it from time to time, normally near location “C” on PS3 and "D" on PS4 in conquest matches. When it shows this plane, approach the trailer from the side with the stairs and hit when prompted to enter the trailer.

Now in the bomber find some targets to kill. To release the JADM, find your target(s) and use to release the weapon. It does take a few moments to get there, so lead your target if it is moving.

I found this very difficult to get kills as I got many hits, but no kills (Normal Mode), so I found another way to accomplish the requirement. The trick to this is to set some mines around before you head for the plane. As long as you are in the bombing run when they kill someone you will be given credit for achieving this.

Another strategy here is to bomb the trailer you enter for the bomber. Many times enemies will be waiting for you to come out and make themselves an easy target. Just be careful, if you are in hardcore you can kill teammates or yourself if you leave the trailer before the bombs hit.

After playing more and more hours, here is another strategy. When you get in the bomber let your first 3 missiles fly right away in the direction of where you think the enemy is. In the mean time start taping your "Spot" button and listen for the audible telltale of where the enemies are. If you let your missiles go early enough you will reload before fully crossing the map and get off another 3 shots on the same bomber pass

You also need to destroy an enemy bomber as well, this can be done with any weapon you are comfortable shooting a plane down with. I personally prefer using the Mobile AA with Missiles.

Reward - Cruise Missile

Assignment 8 - Multi Talent

You need to have your classes ready so you can swap between kits as needed. I would recommend doing this in rush or conquest. In a single round you need to get a kill with a sniper rifle, assault rifle, LMG, and a hand grenade.

Now here it the pain, it is a single round! This does not need to be done on a China Rising Map, it can be any map or any mode. If you are a rush defender they come to you and if you lose your life, ohh well. This is a personal choice one, you have to do it with the weapons and mode you are comfortable in.

I started with the grenade as it is the hardest one for me to get.

Reward - MTAR-21

Assignment 9 - I'm Dynamite

Prerequisite - Eyes in the Sky

Here come those pesky bombers again. To earn this you will need to earn the Bomber Delivery ribbon 3 times, get 20 UCAV kills and score a multi-kill.

To get your bomber ribbon, the best map appears to be silk road as there are a lot of tanks to kill and give you an opportunity to kill 2 for 1. It takes 2 missiles to kill a tank in hardcore. A lot of players try to come to the middle base in the map where the bomber trailer is, so you may want to spam that area when you get the bomber and then give it a chance to reload. The other maps are a little harder to get multiple kills in a game, but once you get the cruise missile (15 bomb kills) you will also have another weapon available to you by hitting

If you are going to boost this, get 3-4 players on the other team to take a LAV or helicopter to a per-defined spot on the map and hit them hard with the bombs and you can cut down on the time for this.

There are mixed emotions on the UCAV as it is very overpowered at this time (Since Patched). You can either fly it directly into people or use the remote detonation function and frag people with it. With the frag mode you will have an easier time killing people in hardcore.

Video Intended for how to use, the reload option was patched by path 1.05

Here is a video from M-Easy on the UCAV:

Battlefield 4 UCAV cheesiness - YouTube

December 18th, 2013 - DICE Update
"Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for "road killing" opponents."

Reward - Air Burst

Assignment 10 - Middle King

Prerequisite - Safe Raiding

Nothing Major to this one, just play China Rising Maps for 10 hours, get 5 five kill streaks, and roadkill someone with the SUAV. To complete this you must get a kill with the bomber, so see Death From Above first. This will be available to complete once you complete the assignment “Safe Raiding”.

If you are going for all the trophies you will have to get a kill with the SUAV Mini Kamikaze. To get your kill with the SUAV I would recommend that you get your kill in hardcore as this will be a Road kill and in normal servers you will have a harder time killing someone with it. This weapon is available to the recon soldier.
