'''Battlefield Friends''' is an animated series by Hank & Jed 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.

!!''Battlefield Friends'' contains the following tropes:

* {{Angrish}}: From most of the characters at times (generally a result of the Noob's actions), but especially the Engineer.
* AudibleSharpness: Knives always make the traditional "metal on metal" sound when drawn.
* ATeamFiring: Any time the Noob tries to shoot anything. Comes to a head in the episode "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQw65XZ9Tm8&list=PL1DD2991C3D415547&index=23 Noob Fight]]".
* BadassBoast: Colonel gets a few.
** From Little Bird Battle:
--> '''Colonel:''' I AM THE BATTLEFIELD!
** From Stingers
--> '''Colonel:''' Ammo's for pussies.
* CallingYourAttacks: Admin, who calls out whatever power he's decided to abuse today.
* CarFu: Happens to, and because of, the Noob, quite a bit.
** In Vehicle Spawn, he employs the infamous "Jihad Jeep" (a Jeep covered in C4 charges), to take out a tank.
** In They Ruined Battlefield, he gets hit by a jet after an ill-fated recreation of the Rendezook video.
** In Levelcap, he accidentally runs over Levelcap with an IFV.
** In Air Superiority, he Jet Rams, which is exactly what it sounds like.
* TheDitz: The Noob, unsurprisingly.
* TheDreaded: Colonel, whose mere presence causes enemies who outnumber him eight to one to [[OhCrap flee for their lives.]]
** The BFF's reaction to him [[spoiler: landing on their transport chopper is to simply [[MookHorrorShow scream in mindless terror as he cuts them down.]]]]
* [[EveryoneHasStandards Even the Noob Has Standards]]: Not even the Noob [[spoiler: likes [[CallOfDuty Call Of Duty]]]].
* {{Flanderization}}: The Noob has rapidly gone from being merely inexperienced at the game to astoundingly stupid and disconnected with reality. Not that this [[LampshadeHanging hasn't gone unnoticed...]]
--> '''Engineer:''' I feel like he's actually getting worse!
** In the opposite direction, Colonel has gone from a disturbingly obsessed Battlefield player to some sort of PhysicalGod or HumanoidAbomination, [[GameBreaker capable of shattering fundamental gameplay aspects on a whim.]]
* FourStarBadass: Colonel
* FourTemperamentEnsemble
** Sanguine: Medic
** Choleric: Engineer
** Phlegmatic: The Noob
** Leukine: Recon
* TheGadfly: The title character from PC Elitist, who gets a kick out of riling up his teammates by insulting the platform they're playing on.
* AGodAmI: The Engineer frequently lapses into this, such as when he discovers the power of the [[GameBreaker USAS 12 with frag rounds]] or the Stinger lock-on missile.
* GutturalGrowler: Colonel, who sounds for all the world like [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork Snake Plissken]].
* InJoke: Much of the humor simply doesn't make sense unless you've played ''Battlefield 3''.
** That said, you'll probably pick up on some of the game mechanics simply by watching the show alone, even if you never played Battlefield 3 even once.
* InkSuitActor: [[BigNameFan Level Cap]] appears as himself at one point.
* JerkAss: Engineer can be quite the douche if he's got his hands on a power weapon.
* JustAStupidAccent: Anyone on the Russian team simply adopts a fairly ludicrous FakeRussian accent, though Noob's stands out as partcicularly awful.
%%* LimitedAnimation
* MoodWhiplash: Played for laughs in Close Quaters, as the focus rapidly flips between nonstop gunfire and screaming, and the Noob serenely taking in the beauty of the environment.
* MoreDakka: The Noob's class, Support, carries an LMG, so this frequently happens, generally combined with ATeamFiring.
* NoNameGiven: The other noob's name is Simon. Other than that, no characters have ever been given a real name, and are usually referred to by their class.
* NoIndoorVoice: Angry Guy literally screams every sentence that come out of his mouth.
* {{Noob}}: [[CaptainObvious The Noob]].
** Simon as well, in a far less ludicrously incompetent way.
* OhCrap: Upon deploying his TUGS, Recon panics as his map lights up with hostile movement converging on him and Noob. [[spoiler: Promtly turns into an OhCrap for the enemies, as it brings down the wrath of Colonel on them.]]
* OnlySaneMan: Assault and, usually, Recon.
* RaceLift: The Assault was white in the first episode and is black at the end of episode 2. This is yet another InJoke: in ''Battlefield 3'''s beta, the US Assault model was white, but was changed to black in the retail release.
* RacistGrandma: Old Veteran claims that Assault's RaceLift was done to ruin Battlefield, much to Assault and Engineers disgust.
* RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic: Averted. Characters frequently stutter and interrupt each other realistically.
* RuinedForever: Embodied by the Old Veteran in "They Ruined Battlefield".
-->'''Old Veteran:''' Just about every patch is ruined in my book, I tell you that.
* RuleOfFunny: Most of the series doesn't make any sense purely from a gameplay standpoint. If the characters are actually players using voice chat, why would they scream when they get shot? How does the Colonel manage to knife the characters while they're in a helicopter? Why would they stop playing the game just to stand around and talk? RuleOfFunny.
* RummageFail: While attempting to recreate the famous Rendezook video, the Noob pulls an EOD robot instead of his launcher.
** In an effort to drop an ammo crate, the Noob accidentally drops a grenade [[spoiler:which kills him and Angry Guy.]]
* RunningGag: The Noob's (poor) attempts at flying helicopters.
** The Noob's obsession with pulling off a Rendezook.
** The Noob and Simon putting C4 on Jeeps.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: Admin, who gleefully abuses the powers afforded him by owning his own server.
-->'''Admin''': Last time I checked my credit card, I can do whatever the hell I want!
* ShoutOut:
** Engineer insults a second noob by calling him "[[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Simon Belmont]]" at one point, after Simon refers to Point D as "Dracula" instead of "Delta".
** The Noob's EOD bot from They Ruined Battlefield looks and sounds like WesternAnimation/WallE, courtesy of a FanNickname for said bots.
* ShoutingShooter: ''Constantly''. Pretty much any time someone shoots at full auto for an extended length of time, they'll do this.
** Brought UpToEleven in Close Quarters, where fully half the episode is Assault, Recon, Engineer and Angry Guy shooting and screaming nonstop.
* TheSmartGuy: Recon at times. He's [[AcePilot the best pilot of the group]], and is generally seen laying down the strategies for the squad.
* SouthernFriedPrivate: The Noob.
* SpannerInTheWorks: The Noob, frequently to his own teammates, but he does get a couple moments of glory.
** Once decided to camp as Recon with a Support, they were discovered by the enemy team who proceeded to plant C4/Claymores all over them and Tbag them. Noob accidentally got his Support to plant some C4 and detonate it. They killed themselves and wiped out half the enemy team.
** Only character to ever manage killing [[ImplacableMan The Colonel.]] Decided to plant C4 in his teammate's chopper after they pissed him off and bailed. After he left the Colonel showed up, killed everyone, and stole the chop. Cue the [[DidntSeeThatComing Noob detonating his C4]]...
* TakeThat: At the end of PC Elitist...
--> '''[[spoiler: Medic:]]''' [[spoiler: I mean, it's not like we're playing ''CallOfDuty'' or some shit.]]
* TheUnfettered: The Colonel, who tells the rest of the players that to be as good as he is, they need to stop working, or having sex, or going to the bathroom, describing these things as 'Time not spent playing battlefield.'
