Battlefield 1 features a multitude of vehicles from the World War I era. There are planes, there are horses, there are ships, and there are tanks. These vehicles, if used correctly, can be an extremely powerful tool in your quest to the high ranks.
We recommend trying out as many as you can as soon as you can so you can get a feel for what you might be best at. Some of you might be better drivers than pilots or vice versa.
Smart and strategic tank drivers and pilots can rack up experience with kills and by providing support at key spots on the map.
If you're a terrible driver or pilot you can latch on with a good driver or pilot. They'll not only help keep you alive (you need to be alive to earn experience points) but they'll also put you in a good position to capture points and take out enemies.
Find a good zeppelin pilot or a solid tank driver and you'll be racking up experience points quickly.
