Leaping into the cockpit of a helicopter in Battlefield 2042 can usually be extra bother than it is price. You achieve a fats stack of miniguns and missiles, however taking to the skies additionally means changing into enemy primary for each RPG-strapped engineer on the opposite workforce.

Any pilot price their salt is used to dodging rockets, however Battlefield streamer AsheBF has it a lot tougher. When he takes flight, he is usually greeted by a squad of stream-snipers devoted to killing him and solely him. Ashe says he is been getting harassed in-game for nearly a yr, usually by the identical group of individuals, however he places up a really spectacular battle. AsheBF has basically spent the final yr in a kung fu coaching montage and mastered the artwork of being like water, besides he is dodging missiles as a substitute of fists and in addition his physique is a helicopter.

Right here you possibly can see him basically 1v24 a helicopter, two jets, floor automobiles, and god is aware of what number of engineers steering manually-controlled RPGs in his course (as shared by Jake Fortunate on Twitter):

An intense, suspenseful, and undeniably cool show of helicopter dominance there. It is spectacular how lengthy AsheBF, who virtually solely takes the pilot function in Battlefield, is ready to final with so many crosshairs on him, however he is not John Wick-ing throughout the skies as a result of he loves the fun. He is compelled to play this fashion as a result of wherever he goes, stream-snipers observe.

In a stream earlier at present, AsheBF says the harassment marketing campaign towards him began due to a “small beef” with just a few gamers and has been happening for about 10 months now.

When you, like me, are curious if AsheBF is overselling what number of gamers are particularly going after him (in any case, each Battlefield participant desires to be the one to explode the helicopter) and the way usually they show as much as spoil his night time, this clip of Ashe dodging eight sequentially-fired Lis rockets is fairly blatant, as is that this clip of him getting pelted by rockets the second his helicopter spawns within the air, or this time a gang of enemy troopers confirmed as much as teabag his lifeless physique.

Whereas there’s a technique to block gamers throughout the Battlefield 2042 consumer, that apparently does cease them from becoming a member of your foyer. AsheBF may theoretically create his personal Portal server, where he can determine who stays and who goes, however as identified by Battlefield YouTuber EndersFPS, there are few sufficient gamers within the area AsheBF performs in (Oceanic) that no one would be part of. So he sticks to official EA servers, where his stream-snipers apparently have a dependable technique of assembly him in the identical foyer.

In an interview with Fortunate, AsheBF described how the harassment has gotten extra private as of late. The earlier night time, he observed that one participant had modified their gamertag to the actual identify of a longtime Battlefield pal who’d lately dedicated suicide.

“I really feel a bit like my soul is being ripped from me, you understand what I imply?” AsheBF says to his chat within the clip beneath seconds earlier than being spawn killed.

These are just some of a dozen-plus examples AsheBF has shared on Twitter in hopes that DICE will take discover and ban the gamers concerned. I’ve reached out to DICE for touch upon the scenario and can update if I hear something again.

Within the meantime, AsheBF is feeling hopeful all the brand new consideration on his conundrum (and let’s be trustworthy, his wonderful piloting expertise) will result in an answer. He began at present’s stream by thanking viewers for sticking with him, and moments later, gained a dogfight towards a stream-sniper who’d proven up right on schedule.
