From trench spade to Lewis gun, here’s every weapon, gadget and explosive confirmed for Battlefield 1 so far.
Now the dust has settled on DICE’s big Battlefield reveal, it’s time we took stock of all the hardware you’ll be playing with in the new shooter.
There may be some concerns that the World War One setting of Battlefield 1 might restrict the amount of weapons and gear available to players, or that it could be a step back from the devastating weaponry we’ve grown used to in previous games.
But what this early 20th Century setting brings is a blend of early mass-produced firepower alongside the previous century’s more primitive weapons. That’s why the figure on the key art for Battlefield 1 stands with a semi-automatic pistol and a mace. It’s that contrast that should hopefully provide plenty of tactical opportunities.
Our man Westie has provided the video above where you’ll see some of the firearms in action, and there’s handy bulletpoint list below.
