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 was planned to allow downed players to be drag downed teammates to a safer location where they could then be successfully Revived or Buddy Revived. The dragging player would be prevented from utilizing any weapons while doing so, though the process could be cancelled at any time.
Despite the feature appearing in the Reveal Trailer, it was never added to the retail version of the game. It was decided that the feature would require new complex and lengthy animations be created to fully realise the feature, and that this length would negatively impact core gameplay by making reviving seem slow and unresponsive. Buddy Dragging was officially announced as being cut on March 25th 2019.
