The gadget is the FR Mask which will be available for the Operator class. It is a fire-resistant mask which can reduce, and sometimes eliminate, fire damage from molotovs and incendiary grenades.

Weapons listed below should be familiar to Battlefield players:

  • Assault rifle for the Operator class – Fires 5.56MM x 45MM at 850 rounds-per-minute. It’s medium-ranged combat.
  • Shotgun for the Enforcer class – Semi-automatic 12 gauge shotgun. Effective in close-quarters.
  • Sniper Rifle for the Professional class – Semi-automatic sniper rifle shoots a .416 round. Great for long-range combat.
  • SMG for the Mechanic class – Fires a 9mm bullet. Perfect for short-to-medium ranged situations.
  • SMG for all classes – SMG-style weapon that fires armor penetrating rounds. Fits short-to-medium ranged instances.

The developer also noted a base game update launching alongside the Robbery DLC will include new weapons, which all classes can use.

One is the throwback Carbine rifle. It’s a semi-automatic with less range than a typical Carbine or assault rifle, but its increased damages makes up for the lack of range.

Hardline players will also receive a new sidearm that shoots armor-piercing rounds with the base game update.

Battlefield Hardline: Robbery releases in September.
