Dataminers have discovered references to seven brand new weapons in Battlefield 1’s game files.
New weapons are likely to come to Battlefield 1 soon, according to some of the game filed being combed.
At this time it’s unknown when they will arrive, or if they will at all. That said, DICE has promised monthly updates for Battlefield 1 until June.
This includes fresh content, tweaks and fixes and more, so it’s quite likely players will see some new weapons added.
In the video below from Westie, you’ll find six of the weapons found by dataminers.
The seventh weapon, the BAR A2, is also mentioned in the files. Westie believes this could be pointing towards another variant of the weapon.
Battlefield 1 already has a BAR, the M1918 model, which was sent over with AEF troops in 1918 to Europe.
- Fedorov Degtyarev prototype automatic rifle
- Mosin Nagant M38 Carbine
- Single Action Service Revolver
- Thompson Annihilator prototype SMG
- Thompson M1919 prototype SMG
- Winchester Burton LMR (Light Machine Rifle)
If these do make it into the game, again, they will need to arrive before or in June as it’s the last monthly update for the game.
DICE recently made the map Rupture from the Battlefield 1 DLC They Shall Not Pass available to all players. It said more maps from the DLC will be released in May.
