Ribbons are now in Battlefield 1. The Winter Update for Battlefield 1 added ribbons, small in-game achievements, that give a small amount of XP every time you attain one. It’s simple stuff like getting five kills with a rifle during a match, or spotting enemies for your squad. There are twenty available for now. The developers claim they’re intended to foster teamwork. Battlefield 4 had them, and like a really famous short guy once said, “A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.” It turns out that it’s true even with virtual ribbon. It’s like collecting Pokemon, but they’re not impressive to anyone but you.
