Battlefield 1 is an impressive first-person shooter game set during World War 1. Players use specific weapons from that period to take control of armored vehicles, fly planes or ride horses into battle.

Witnessing Battlefield 1 battles is always an impressive experience. If you want to change your perspective a bit, you can enable the game’s Spectator Mode.

How to enable BF1’s spectator mode

1. On Battlefield 1’s start up screen > select Multiplayer. Don’t use the quick match options because you can’t join the game as a spectator.
