You can already tell some of the new weapon variants in Battlefield 1 will be favoured by many.
Earlier this week, DICE revealed four new Battlefield 1 weapon variants. Each of them is designed to make certain weapons more viable, or add nuance to already effective options.
The four variants hit the game’s CTE recently, all available for the those at class rank 10 and beyond with each of the four main classes.
In the video above, YouTuber DANNYonPC shows off footage of the Hellriegel 1915 Defensive, Selbstlader 1906 Sniper, Huot Automatic Optical, and the Martini-Henry Sniper. Reaching rank 10 is not enough, though, as you’ll still need to fulfil the unlock requirements for each of them.
The Selbstlader 1906 Sniper in particular looks like it could make the weapon more desirable, which it is definitely not at this stage. The Martini-Henry, on the other hand, may lead to another nerf for the powerful rifle.
DICE has yet to reveal when the four new variants will hit the live game.
