When playing in online, occasionally I hear over ther speakers that a new HVT has been established (or some version of that statement). Here are my presumptions:

HVT = High Value Target, assigned by our commander, & I will earn more XP if I find and kill the HVT.

Is this correct? If so, do they show up on my radar & how much extra XP do you earn?

  • Is it HTV or HVT (as per your assumption of High Value Target)?

High Value Target is a default commander resource featured in Battlefield 4. It reveals the location of an enemy to the entire team for 45 seconds, becoming available once that enemy has reached a six or more kill streak. Bonuses are awarded to players who eliminate HVTs, and to HVTs themselves for continuing their kill streaks.

  • Oh Nice! Do you know about how much the bonuses are? And when revealed, do they look different on the mini map?

  • @ZeroStack I think the value changes based on their kill streak, ie its a base value for the 6 kills that increases by a small amount for each additional kill, though I am unsure on that
