For a while now there have been rumours of playable pigeons in Battlefield 1, treading a fine line between WTF? and 'just about crazys enough to be true'.
Early on in the single player campaign there's a mission called Through Mud and Blood where you play a tank crew overrun by enemy force. Their solution to the problem is to release a pigeon back to HQ with coordinates to call in an artillery strike. This then plays out with you as the bird, flying back through a series of floating rings to complete the objective. I promise you I’m not making this up. Watch.
