Hi guys, I have amazing news for you today. What if I told you that you, on your own, can take away 1 quarter of health, in less than 5 seconds, of one of the most powerful behemoths in Battlefield 1. What if I told you that you and your squad, can kill the Train in less than 5 seconds. Pretty amazing he and all it takes is a little bit of teamwork. If you want to know how to do all of this then keep watching and I will teach you everything. Welcome to the ultimate guide on how to kill the train in Battlefield 1.
When the enemy train gets deployed on the battlefield your team will be on the winning side, your job is to keep it that way. The train can have a massive impact on the game, that is what it is there for, it will give the losing side a fighting chance, it will give them a big advantage over your team and I have seen many occasions where they easily took over control and they won the game. So starting today, this will not happen anymore, and I will even give you a super secret tip on how to instantly kill the train with your squad! You are able to kill the train before it reaches the first flag, but it will require some teamwork.
Imagine the look on their faces when you do this! But first let’s start with the basics. Knowledge is power. You need to know your enemy before you learn how to kill the train. I’m sure that you know what it looks like, and most of you have been able to fight with the train already. There are 6 seats, one driver seat and 5 gunner seats. The gunners have a good field of view, but the driver can’t see that much of what lies ahead, basically he is almost driving blind so I will show you later how to take advantage of that. The train is a huge target, you won’t have any difficulties hitting hit, the problem is knowing how to deal a massive amount of damage and knowing which equipment or which gadgets you need to use to maximise your efforts. I will show you everything. From K bullets, to explosives, tanks, airplanes, you name it! Everything that is available in Battlefield 1 at this moment will be covered. At the end of this video you will know exactly which equipment to use and how so that you can do maximum damage, and you will also know what not to use so that you don’t waste your time.
I will show you everything in a few different parts. In part 1 we will focus on airplanes, in part 2 we will focus on tanks and in the last part we will focus on infantry. In the top right corner you will see buddy, you all know him from previous videos and he will be our train driver today. Keep an eye on his damage bar so that you know how much damage he is taking. On the main screen you will see the equipment or airplane in this case and in the top right corner you will see how much damage you will cause to buddy’s train.
As you can see the the fighter with the bomber load out is a waste of time, zero damage, not even hit points. What about the attack airplane with the tank hunter loadout? Sounds promising right, only 25 hit points and 2 damage points. The second shot was dead on as well and we got 25 hit points but only 1 damage point this time. As you can see the damage to the train can be slightly inconsistent. This is probably due to the damage reduction caused by the angle, if you want a more detailed explanation on how this works then check out the ultimate video on how to kill a tank and you will understand what this means. Your secondary weapon will cause 21 for each bomb but even if you hit the train with both of them you will only cause 1 damage point.
The airship buster attack airplane does absolutely no damage with the primary weapon, the secondary is a little bit better but still, if you shoot at the train and you don’t hit it with every shot you will not get any hit points but if you’re lucky you might get a damage point, in the second run you will see that if you hit the train with every shot that you will get 20 hit points but no damage point. There is a mathematical explanation for this but this would complicate things way too much, just know that by average you will get 20 hit and 1 damage point. You get the idea now so I will go slightly faster for the other airplanes. The Firestorm bomber absolutely no damage. The Torpedo bomber 33 hit and 2 or 3 damage points with your primary, your secondary 33 per bomb so 66 max which means 2 damage points.
The Trench fighter, the primary is useless so only the secondary is effective, a full hit is 64 hit points and 1 damage point. The Ground support attack airplane, primary about 43 hit points maximum, no damage point this time, and the secondary is completely useless. The barrage bomber is probably the best airplane to fight the train when you look at hit points, 66 with the primary and 55 with the secondary. I know what you are thinking at this point, is it a waste of time to attack the train with an airplane? That is for you to decide. Every little bit helps so yes you are helping, a little bit. Personally, I am not going to waste my time on this. You are much better off doing other things with your airplane. Let’s focus on the tanks this time, so this is part 2. First of all let’s get to know our enemy a little bit better and let me show you what you can do with the train against the tank before we look at tank against train.
Position 1 is the driver seat so your not going to be able to do much against a tank from this seat so let’s go to position 2, this is actually the back of the train. One hit to a light tank does 24 damage. Position 3, just behind the driver is completely useless against a tank so don’t bother. Position 4 is better, one shot is one damage point. Position 5 is completely useless and position 6 is ok with approximately 1 damage point per hit. So as a tank driver watch out for positions 2,4 and 6. The biggest question now is what can you do with the tanks? Let’s start with the Artillery truck.
The primary weapon is completely useless against the train. The secondary on the other side does 35 hit and 2 damage points per shot. When you get your hands on the heavy tank where you get access to a cannon as the driver, you will cause 26 hit points and 1 damage point per shot. When you are driving the light tank you will also cause 1 damage point per shot. All of this isn’t very spectacular but at least we are able to deal a lot more damage to the train with our tank compared to the airplanes. Just for info know that you can take out the turrets as well if they are causing you too much trouble. With the light take it will take 4 shots to disable one turret, and the turret will be disabled for 30 seconds.
Unfortunately you won’t be credited for a kill when you do this because the guy who was operating the turret won’t die when his turret gets disabled. This is something that I don’t agree with and I hope that they will change that in the future. Just remember that the turrets will auto repair. In the last step we will take a closer look at what you can do as infantry. You might think that the tank is the way to go but you will be very surprised when you discover what you can do as a regular soldier.
. I’m sure that you know that your primary and secondary weapons aren’t able to damage the train. This includes the sniper rifles. However, you can damage the train with your K bullets, but don’t expect any miracles. After firing 4 bullets you will get 25 hit points and 1 damage point. That’s it. However if you focus your fire on 1 particular turret then you can disable it. Don’t attack the train as a medic or as the support class. There isn’t much that you can do. The go to class for tanking out the train is the attack class. Let’s start with a normal grenade, just for info this grenade is available for all standard classes. The grenade will cause 1 damage point. We have something better available to us than the normal grenade and that is the light anti tank grenade. You will get 21 hit points and 2 damage points. Not bad but we can do even better with the Anti tank grenades, 27 hit and between 1 and 3 damage points.
For some reason this isn’t consistent. Just know that it does more damage than the light anti tank grenade. The AT Rocket gun will give you 22 hit points per rocket but I don’t know the damage points because when I was recording this, there was a bug and none of the damage was shown on screen, no matter which weapon I used, it registered but it just wasn’t showing. My apologies for that but I was beyond my control. Let’s go over to the good stuff.
Dynamite. If you use all of you dynamite at the same time, then you will get 99 hit and 9 damage points, not bad he. You are almost taking away 10 percent of the train’s full health on your own. But we can do much better than that with the AT Mines. One mine will cause a whopping 100 hit points and on top of that you will get 6 damage points. Sometimes you will even get 114 hit points. Now, you have 3 of those mines, so that means as a minimum, you will get 300 hit and 18 damage points. That is almost 20% of the health of the most powerful vehicle on the battlefield. As a lone wolf you can cause a lot of damage against the train. The best tactic is to use a crater right next to the train tracks. Place your AT mines on the track and then hide in the crater.
It is very unlikely that any of the gunners will see you so don’t worry about getting killed. As soon as you see the train, throw everything you got at the train. Start with your anti tank grenades and then follow up with your light anti tank grenade. In the meantime your mines will cause massive damage to the train as soon as it drives by and you will get a whopping 475 hit points and approximately 25 damage points. Basically your one man army just took away 1 quarter of the train’s health. Amazing isn’t it. But this wouldn’t be FOG of GAMING if I didn’t show you how you can insta kill the train. For this you will need a few of your buddies. The makers of Battlefield want us to focus on teamwork so let’s do that. With a little bit of teamwork you can easily take out the train long before it can do any damage to your team.
You can even kill the train before it reaches the first flag. 2 guys with mines will bring the train’s healt down to 65 and 4 guys with mines will bring it down to 36. Now I can see the smile on your face already and I know what you are thinking. Because 5 guys with mines, can reduce the healt down to 21, and 6 guys to about 6 health and 7 guys can insta kill the train with only their mines. I know that it will be harder to get 7 guys to lay down their mines at the right location so it is unlikely that you will be able to do that since there are only 5 guys in a squad. Unless you are playing with your clan of course. But no worries, I have a solution for that as well. This is what you should do when you are playing with 4 other buddies, so 5 guys in a squad. The first thing that all of you should do is to lay down all of your AT Mines. This will reduce the health to 21.
That is by far the most effective strategy. What you do next is up to you, you can hide at a safe distance and use your AT Rockets guns to finish off the train, or you can make it more spectacular and you can all hide in a crater next to the track and take out the train from up close with your anti tank grenades, the choice is yours but expect to see one pissed off enemy. If you want to dominate the Battlefield then this is the way to that. I don’t think that you can have a bigger impact on the game than this. You are instantly taking away their most powerful weapon, their only hope of winning the game at this point is gone. All thanks to you and your buddies. This is warfare at it’s best, real Generals in the Military would die to figure out a tactic like this.
And now you have access to it. By the way guys, the Youtube likes and shares are very helpful to me. If you think that this video is worthy, would you mind taking a moment to like this video and to share it with all you buddies? I would greatly appreciate it. This was FOG of GAMING, thanks for watching and I will see you on the Battlefield!.
