USAF Buddy Drag

Buddy drag is a form of action taken to drag causalities out of danger to a safer location to administer medical attention. This helps prevent further harm to the causality as well as the person attempting first-aid. Additionally this is done to recover the bodies of the deceased to safety. It does have a few disadvantages, however. Since the action requires physically dragging someone without assistance, it may be difficult if only done by one person. It also poses a great risk of the responder becoming another causality.

Battlefield VEdit

BF1 Trash Cut content
The subject of this article, Buddy Drag, has been cut from the final version of a Battlefield game.

Buddy drag was a new gameplay mechanic that was intended to be added to Battlefield V. It allowed downed players to be dragged to a safer location in order for a successful Syringe or Buddy Revive. The animation prevented the player from utilizing any weapons while dragging though it can be canceled at any time. Although the feature appeared in the Reveal Trailer, it was never added to the retail version of the game. This was due to the long animations that would be required as well as pacing issues.
