Battlefield 5‘s seasonal content Tides of War is getting second chapter. The new chapter Lightning Strikes will come this week and it brings a lot of features.
Battlefield V Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes update notes
Lightning Strikes will bring new mode Squad Contest, new weapons and lots of fixes. Also new weekly challenges will be added.
Squad Conquest is a tighter and more intense version of Conquest, where two squads per team battle it out over smaller, more tactical layouts of three existing maps: Arras, Hamada, and Rotterdam. These maps all feature 16 players on two teams, three flags, spawning restricted to HQs, and limited access to vehicles. A core belief behind Squad Conquest is a restricted number of variables to allow strategy to be able to exist – you have to be able to predict player behavior and patterns, which is reflected in all three map layouts. Clear lanes and conservative combat areas allow players to predict where enemies are coming from, where they need to defend, and how to subvert enemy movement.
In the weekly challenges you can get three new weapons. These weapons are ZK-383 (SMG), Modele 1944 (SA) and M1922 (MMG).
