A high value target, or HVT, is a military term that refers to a person marked as an objective for a mission. The person wanted is typically in possession of critical intelligence, data, and/or authority. The HVT may be an enemy combatant—often a high-ranking official—or civilian in danger of capture or death.

Battlefield 4[]

High Value Target is a default commander resource featured in Battlefield 4. It reveals the location of an enemy to the entire team for 45 seconds, becoming available once that enemy has reached a six or more kill streak.

Potential targets for HVT marking are tracked on the commander's view with the same partial frame that designates the team's squad leaders.

When a player is marked as an HVT, both teams are alerted to the action. Squad leaders can be given an enemy HVT as an objective. Bonuses are awarded to players who eliminate HVTs, and to HVTs themselves for continuing their kill streaks while marked.
