The Battlefield 1 beta kicked off at the end of August and ran until September 8.

While some of us were running around like a headless chicken with an assault rifle strapped to one wing, others were busy data mining the crap out the beta for morsels of information on the game, and those very people have ferreted out 23 news weapons that we’ll see in the main game presumably.

Westie talks us through the discoveries in the video above, where you’ll find that a lot of the guns are the same model in different variants.

Battlefield 1 is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 21, 2016. The Early Enlister Edition will grant you early access on October 18.
