* WeaponOfChoice: The crew uses weapons associated with their respective classes, and due to the LimitedAnimation style, seem to use the same weapons in almost all the episodes. Early episodes in Seasons 1 -3 seem to regularly depict the team using [=M4A1s=], despite the carbine not being an all-class weapon in ''Battlefield 3'', but in ''Battlefield 4'', they sometimes use carbines as it is available to all classes in that game. The Beretta [=M9=] appears to be their sidearms of choice throughout the series
** Engineer uses carbines, notably the [=G36C=] in ''[=BF3=]'' and ''Hardline'', and the ACE 21 in ''[=BF4=]''. The [=MK153 SMAW=] is his default rocket launcher.
** Medic uses assault rifles, namely the AEK-971 or the ACE-23 in ''[=BF4=]''.
** Noob uses light machine guns ([[ATeamFiring ineffectively]]), mostly seen with the [=M249 SAW=] and sometimes, the [=U100 MK5=] in ''[=BF4=]'' which he refers to as 'The Big Gun'.

While Seasons 1 - 3 takes place in ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'', they eventually they move onto ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 4}}'' in Season 4, where the group tackles the game's notoriously buggy beginnings, to other common gameplay related issues like frequently stuck vehicles, more overpowered weapons and even try out some Easter Eggs. Currently as of September 2015, Season 5 of ''Battlefield Friends'' is ongoing, the crew having entered the 'cops-n-robbers' world of ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield Hardline}}'', the episodes switching back and forth between ''[=BF4=]'' and ''Hardline'' bi-weekly.

* InstantCostumeChange: Whenever the characters use a different class to what they usually play as, their wardrobe changes accordingly to that of the class's. Interestingly, this also happens whenever any character swap out loadouts on the fly, even though this doesn't actually happen in the games.

'''Battlefield Friends''' is an animated series by Creator/HankAndJed chronicling the adventures of a group of four players and their [[HilarityEnsues misadventures]] in the video game ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}''. The humor of the series primarily revolves around [[InJoke In Jokes]] related to ''Battlefield 3'''s multiplayer, from the difficulty of accurately controlling helicopters to GameBreaker weapons such as the USAS 12 with frag rounds.

Eventually they move onto ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 4}}'', where the group tackles the game's notoriously buggy beginnings, to other gameplay related issues like frequently stuck vehicles, and even try out some Easter Eggs.
