Battlefield 5: here’s all of the weapons and vehicles available at release

By Stephany Nunneley, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 19:16 GMT

DICE has provided information on the vehicles and weapons players will use in Battlefield 5 when it releases.

Battlefield 5 will contain 30 primary weapons, seven side-arms, nine melee weapons and more when it is released in November.

There will also be a number of vehicles players can drive or pilot in the game.

The use of certain weapons will be dependent upon which of the four classes were chosen by the player. This is because weapons and gadgets are set per class, but more will be unlocked just by playing.

Below you will find additional information on the weapons and vehicles available at launch.
