Today, Electronic Arts and DICE revealed the list of weapons, gadgets, and vehicles appearing in Battlefield V at launch. With 30 primary weapons, 7 sidearms, and 9 melee weapons, 16 gadgets, and 24 vehicles the initial arsenal sounds decent. You can read all about them here. Many guns should be intimately familiar to Battlefield 1 players considering roughly half of them appeared in that game as well. But when you start to dig into the details, there are some interesting omissions.
Two of the weapons most associated American forces during the war – the M1 Garand and BAR M1918 – are nowhere to be found. This shouldn't be too surprising since EA previously announced the game is launching with only the British and German factions. DICE plans to add more factions (and presumably weapons) as it rolls out new theaters of war in its Tides of War post-launch campaign.
Battlefield V releases on anywhere from November 9 to November 20 depending on what version you purchase for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC.
