5v5 was a squad-based competitive gamemode that was in development for Battlefield V but was cut before release.[1]

Overview

The mode was similar to Incursions, a 5v5 competitive mode introduced with Battlefield 1. As the name suggests, the mode revolved around two teams of five engaging in infantry combat on close quarters maps.

Objectives

Rounds of the 5v5 mode consisted of the following game types:

  • Capture Flags - Similar to Domination.
  • Raid Caches - Possibly a Capture the Flag variant.
  • Plant Bombs - Similar to Defuse from Battlefield 4, with an attacking and defending team.
  • Holdout - Attackers would fight to either capture a flag or eliminate defenders, who have only one life and must hold out as long as possible. Similar to Headquarters from Call of Duty.

Maps

Lofoten Islands and Provence were designed specifically for the mode. The maps are planned to release in early September with Squad Conquest and Team Deathmatch modes.

Doctrines

Allies and Axis teams could select "doctrines" that provided bonus for each side. The Allied doctrines were Army Rangers, SAS, and R.M.C while the Axis doctrines were Volksgrenadiere, MSK and Decima Mas.

Classes

At the start of a round players would select a class, of which only one of each type could be on the same team. A list of subclasses, their descriptions and class perks are listed below:

Squad Leader

  • Control Captain - "Directs the attack with a sharp eye for the enemy, a precise shot, and a resourcefulness to acquire a battefield advantage."

Weapons and Gadgets

The mode included class-specific weapons and gadgets similar to Incursions, but also unique equipment developed for the mode that were either not intended for multiplayer or had their functions altered for the mode. These included the Type 89 Knee Mortar, TN-17 Radio Jammer, Hawkins Grenade, Model SLd Flare Pistol, Goliath Tracked Mine, deployable MG 34 Tripod and a tear-gas firing Panzerbüchse 39.[3]

Development

The mode was initially announced alongside the Tides of War roadmap released in March 2019, being set for release in June 2019 along with Lofoten Islands and Provence.[4] An updated roadmap from June showed the implementation of the two maps had been pushed to back to August and made no mention of the mode. Despite this updates to the mode continued in the game files until three weeks before it was officially announced as cancelled.
