In-game screenshot of the Tutorial

The Tutorial Game Mode is a peaceful single player map with no enemies, where new players can learn the basic mechanics of the game. Accessing the tutorial requires internet connection nonetheless.


The Tutorial can be accessed by checking the "Tutorial" checkbox next to the Play Now button in the game-client, and then clicking on the Play Now button itself. You can also play the tutorial by going in the options and there will be a tab saying Play Tutorial.

In the Tutorial, objectives appears at the top of the screen with instructions on how to move, shot and things alike. Red bonfires will mark the places to move to. Once a player reaches a bonfire, they are given their next objective, which is either to reach the next bonfire, capture a flag or destroy a vehicle.

Since Version 1.80 new players are forced to complete the tutorial before playing online. Once finished, the game mode isn't available any more. This has been done in the believe that experienced players don't use the tutorial any more. After the developers noticing the huge demand after the removal they decided to re-implement it within the next versions. The rumours originally told that this feature has been removed by EA from the game due to people using it as a test map to try out new, unreleased items and weapons that were present in the game's files, but unavailable in the store.


Like in Pregame or in an Unranked server, neither XP nor Valor Points are earned, and no statistics are stored. The use of the Tutorial is restricted to give new users an understanding of the settings.


The only map to play the tutorial on is Seaside Skirmish. The main reason for not porting to other maps is the fact that the tutorial game mode script is specific for seaside, so ends up with very weird and unordered instructions on other maps. [citation needed]


  • The wooden targets, weak tanks and red bonfires are exclusive objects of the Tutorial and cannot be found anywhere else. However, the red bonfires closely resemble the National Festive Flare Widget that was released during the Football Fiesta.
  • When someone writes something into chat in Tutorial, his name shows as Current.
