Before you find out how to play Firestorm in Battlefield 5, you’ll want to know exactly what it is. Simply put, Firestorm is a brand-new battle-royale game mode in Battlefield 5.

Essentially, you will fly in over the Halvoy map, choose a deploy spot, then land there with the help of a parachute either alone or as part of a small squad. You’ll need to find weapons, vehicles, and items throughout the map. The Firestorm will close in, making the map smaller as you play. The last player or team standing wins. Once you have been killed, you’re out.

Firestorm is Battlefield’s answer to Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Black Ops 4 Blackout. It’s a separate mode and you will need to download the latest update in order to play it.
