The upcoming Battlefield 1 DLC In the Name of the Tsar is set to be one of the game’s biggest, both in terms of scale and the quantity of weapons and vehicles it’ll add.
All of the previously revealed weapons are currently available on the game’s CTE. Of particular note are the new Medic weapons, the Fedorov Avtomat and General Liu Rifle.
In his video below, Westie starts off by showing the Fedorov Avtomat, the closest thing we have to an assault rifle for Medics in Battlefield 1. Until now, the class was mainly where you’d find DMRs.
The Fedorov Avtomat is fully automatic, and comes in two variants: the Trench and the Optical. It has a fire rate of 450RPM and a 25-round magazine. Like a proper AR, the Avtomat has a nice vertical kick that demands you tap fire it for accuracy at longer ranges. As a result, it’s mostly effective at close to medium ranges, which may disappoint some people.
The General Liu Rifle is more inline with that the Medics currently have. This single-shot DMR comes in a Factory variant, and a Storm variant. Both variants do not come with any optics, though. Unlike the Fedorov, this one is clip-fed.
In the Name of the Tsar does not currently have a release date, but something tells us it’s going to be out this month.
