DICE has revealed new details for Battlefield V Chapter 6: Into the Jungle. The next chapter to Battlefield V’s Tides of War campaign will launch on February 6 (Thursday). As the fight between the American forces and Imperial Japanese Army rages on, Into The Jungle will take players into the dense jungle terrain of the Solomon Islands.
The latest chapter will offer new maps, weapons, gadgets, elites, and rewards. So let’s break down in more detail what the sixth chapter has to offer.
The map of Solomon Islands is a jungle environment where players should expect the unexpected. According to EA’s official blog post on Chapter 6, the islands have been designed for ‘intimate jungle infantry combat.’ This has been combined with land and sea warfare. From rivers and marshes, dark mangroves, and concealed bunkers, the terrain can work for you or against you.
Chapter 6 offers three new weapons for the taking, as well as two new gadgets. These are Chapter Rewards, rewarded to players who earn Chapter XP and hit chapter ranks.
There’s the Type 11 LMG and Model 37 shotgun for Support Class. Assault players can unlock the M2 Carbine, a fully automatic rifle.
Meanwhile, with gadgets, there’s the M1A1 Bazooka, a superior anti-tank tool designed for long-range. Also, there’s the Lunge Mine Gadget. Available to Assault and Support players, this mine will counter enemy tanks.
You can deploy with a choice of three new elites. There’s assault specialist Misaki Yamashiro, pilot Steve Fisher, and Zero Pilot Akira Sakamoto.
To earn the best gear within Chapter 6, you’ll need to climb Chapter Ranks. While the Chapter is active, you can push through the 40 ranks by simply playing Battlefield V. On the way, emblems, weapons skins, and uniforms can be earned. Also, players can attain weapons and Elite soldier Misaki Yamashiro.
Elsewhere, weekly challenges mean the player can earn even more rewards, from Chapter XP, customization items, and full Chapter Rank tiers.
Jump into the all-out war in Battlefield V with Battlefield V: Year 2 Edition. As a result, WW2 will become an entirely different experience. Rewards will be up for grabs, including all weapons and vehicles across the first year of the Battlefield V Tides of War Chapters, as well as the most sought after weapon and vehicle skins. Lastly, players can customize their Company with two Epic soldier outfits.
Lastly, there’s the Chapter 6 Premium Booster Pack. It can be found in the in-game store. It contains 2,000 Battlefield Currency, three special assignments, and activated upon purchase, a 20% Chapter XP Boost. It also includes six Tier Catch-Ups, used to move up reward tiers in Chapter Rank progression.
Plus, two soldier outfits of the Epic rarity level are available: the Overlord (U.S.) and Homeland Guardian (Japan).
The Premium Booster Pack allows players to decorate their unlocked M1 Garand, Type 99 Arisaka, Type 97, and M3 Grease Gun weapons with Gilded Epic Weapon Skins. Players can also adorn their Corsair plane with the Spectacle paint job.
