IAV - Killstreak Traits
Only Available in Ground War & Large Maps
The Infantry Assault Vehicle is only available to use in Ground War or larger maps of other modes. You won't be able to use this Killstreak on smaller sized maps. Instead, a Wheelson will replace this Killstreak on other game modes with smaller maps.
Can Transport Two Players
The IAV is able to transport two players. Each player will have a designated role. The driver controls movement of the tank and the cannon, while the gunner controls the .50 cal machine gun on top of the vehicle.
Has a Cannon & Machine Gun
The IAV has two different options for firepower. It has a cannon which fires explosive rounds, but has a low fire rate. On the other hand, there is also a .50 cal machine gun which has a high rate of fire.
Takes Some Time to Get In
Unlike most games, getting into an IAV is not instantaneous - A player will need to capture it by interacting it for a while. This means that an empty IAV can be hijacked if someone got to the IAV before the user, so always drop it near you when calling it in.
IAV - Killstreak Tips
Watch Out For Proximity Mines
Proximity Mines are deployable traps that explode when it is stepped on or run over. These deal extra damage to vehicles so be careful and watch out for mines in possible chokepoints while driving the IAV!Check Out Proximity Mines Here!
Machine Gunner Can Be Killed
Keep in mind that the Machine Gunner is exposed to the outside when riding the vehicle. This means that enemies will be able to shoot the Machine Gunner so keep an eye out for enemies that are focusing fire on the Machine Gunner.
Use Cannon To Kill Enemies In Buildings
If you notice that some enemies are clumped together inside a building, you can use the cannon to clear out those enemies. Since the cannon deals explosive damage, you may be able to earn multi-kills!
Pair It With Kill Chain Perk
The Kill Chain Perk lets your killstreak kill be counted for activating killstreaks. As IAVs are notoriously powerful, pair it with the perk to earn even more killstreaks.Check out All Perk Guide here!
