Battlefield: 1943 (2009)

The following weapons appear in the video game Battlefield: 1943:



There are three classes in Battlefield: 1943: Rifleman, Infantry, and Scout. Weapon selection is very limited in 1943, with each class having only one set loadout and no alternate options, and the equivalent weapons of both teams being statistically identical.

Rifleman uses battle rifles, and have access to 3 rifle grenades, 2 hand grenades, and also a mounted bayonet. Infantry use submachine guns, and have access to an anti-tank rocket launcher as a secondary weapon, a wrench to repair friendly vehicles, and 2 hand grenades. Scout uses sniper rifles, and have access to a secondary pistol, dynamite bundles, and a melee weapon.


Colt M1911A1

The M1911A1 is the sidearm of the American Scout. It is incorrectly portrayed as firing from an uncocked hammer, which stays uncocked even if first round has been fired or if the gun's slide has been pulled back while reloading.

Type 5 Rifle (M1 Garand mock-up)

An M1 Garand modified to stand-in for the rare Japanese Type 5 Rifle copy of the Garand is the standard weapon for the Japanese Rifleman. It is clearly a modified version of the M1 Garand model, featuring the clip latch and M1 Garand-styled rear sight that the real Type 5 lacks. The differences between the models include modified iron sights, thicker wood furniture (especially around the trigger), different wood texture, and a Japanese Chrysanthemum Seal added to the receiver.

Being a remodeled weapon copy, its animations are completely identical to the M1 Garand, meaning uses the M1 Garand 8-round en-bloc clip instead of stripper clips it uses in real life.

Karabiner 98

Due to budget and time restraints on DICE's part, they could not model the Arisaka and instead gave the Japanese Scout Class scoped Karabiner 98ks. Its animations are shared with the M1903's.
