— In-game description
The Dinghy is a vehicle introduced to Battlefield V in the Tides of War chapter. War in the Pacific. The vehicle was first seen in the Battlefield V – War in the Pacific Official Trailer. The naval vessel is powered by an outboard motor controlled by a pilot, and can seat three other passengers who may use their infantry weapons - the vehicle is otherwise unarmed. The vessel can act as a mobile spawn point for players when occupied, similar to a halftrack or LCVP.
The dinghy's high speed and shallow draft allow it to skip a fair distance up an incline, or skim completely over small footbridges such as those on Solomon Islands. In other cases, it may suffer considerable damage from collision. Passengers who are killed may remain seated in the dinghy unless pushed out by further incoming fire (and possibly other players that enter the vehicle).
The Dinghy in comparison to other vehicles is incredibly fragile, With it be able to be destroyed by any launcher available to the player.
