Battlefield: Hardline is still in beta on PS4 and PC. Some gamers have dug through the beta’s files to unearth cache of hidden weapons, modes, sound files and map names. They’ve even posted up a video of the new weapons in action.


It follows my video of Battlefield: Hardline’s Heist mode on PS4, with commentary into how it feels to play, gun handling, vehicles and more. I also kill myself in perhaps the most face-palming way ever. Doh…

YouTuber Hattiwatti did the digging to reveal the following guns:

  • M93R – Hand Gun
  • M1911 – Hand Gun
  • RS357 – Magnum
  • MAC-10 – Personal Defense Weapon
  • M240B – Light Machine-Gun
  • SR-25 ECC – Designated Marksmen Rifle
  • L96A1 – Bolt-Action Rifle
  • SMAW – Launcher
  • M18 – Smoke Grenade

Here they are in action:

Meanwhile, Reddit user SkacikPL has sifted through the Battlefield: Hardline audio files to unearth mention of new modes, dialogue and other snippets.

Here’s his breakdown:

  • “Desert 05 – Hostage rescue (no offical map name so far) – Hostage rescue against gang running a methamphetamine lab. Full transcript available here“
  • “Turf war on High Tension – most likely domination cameo as in recent interviews, Visceral employee said that as of now Conquest is not included in Hardline. Transcript of only audio file is available in above link.”
  • “Hostage sound files (mainly variations of words ‘hey/over here/help me/’ with one exception of ‘Hey man cut me loose’)”
  • “Molotovs/incendiary – Sound files indicate the existence of incendiary bombs, whilst ingame weapon name states Molotov. Most likely will stay as incendiary as currently it uses BF4 incendiary grenade particle effects.”
  • “Map called ‘growhouse’ will have a levolution event with blowing up Van”
  • “There is a singleplayer level nicknamed ‘Chop Shop’, which most likely is a warehouse raided by a player (it will end up in flames).”
  • “Sound files containing impact sounds of empty .45 shell on various surfaces (nicknamed Distraction bullet). May indicate that SP has stealth mechanics.”
  • “If you’re interested, here’s a small package with mentioned audio files”

MP1st spotted that YouTuber Hattiwatti was prompted by the Reddit post to tweet out what he claims are the map names in full. Treat these as rumour for now:
