Destruction has been a regular feature of Battlefield games, starting from Battlefield 1942. This destructive ability gained proper ground and became more effective in the titles that followed, made capable by the Frostbite Engine.

This feature basically allows players to break objects, cover, and sometimes even buildings. Destruction changes the dynamics of the map and reveals new play style. In the later versions of the series, destruction of buildings inflicted damage to enemies. Therefore, players used this feature often as an offensive technique to kill enemies by bringing down entire buildings on them.
