Blue Force Tracker (BFT)

The Blue Force Tracker (BFT) is used by Soldiers to track the locations of other Soldiers, objectives, cardinal directions, and information vital to success in combat. A Soldier can adjust the viewing distance of the map by rolling the mouse wheel.

Location Indicator

The location indicator tells the Soldier what area of the map they currently occupy. If a player uses the Report Location command from the Communications Radial Menu, the player's current location is announced to the other players on their team.

Weapon Inventory

The weapon inventory shows a Soldier which weapons they currently possess, and how many magazines they have for each weapon. A player may have a maximum of six weapons in their inventory.

Stamina Bar

The stamina bar shows how much stamina the Soldier has left. Stamina is used for sprinting and holding breath. As a player does either of those actions, the stamina bar will get smaller. If a Soldier has depleted their stamina, they cannot hold their breath or sprint. If a Soldier is not doing an action which uses stamina, the stamina bar will slowly replenish.

Anatomical Damage Model

The anatomical damage model shows where a Soldier has been wounded. When a player has been wounded in a specific area, that area will turn red. Every Soldier wears body armor on their torso, and it is represented by the color gray. Body armor can take two to three hits before being compromised. When a Soldier's armor has been compromised, it will change from gray to black.

Health Bar

The health bar indicates the current health status of the Soldier. If the Soldier is bleeding, the potential lost health will appear as a series of lines in the health box. Depending on the condition of the player, the color of the health bar will change. Green indicates a healthy Soldier, yellow indicates a Soldier in poor condition, and red indicates a Soldier in critical condition. If the health bar drops below the line in the health bar, the Soldier will fall unconscious.

Crosshair

The crosshair indicates the general point where your weapon is aimed. When you fire your weapon, the shot fired will hit somewhere within that space. Movement will cause the cross hair to expand, while crouching or going prone will cause it to contract. To be the most accurate, a player should utilize their weapon's sights by clicking the right mouse button.
