Battlefield 4 is the latest installment in the Battlefield series developed by Swedish game developer DICE and published by Electronic Arts. It was announced that those who pre-ordered Medal of Honor: Warfighter would be granted early beta access to the game. The game was released on October 29, 2013.


The following weapons are seen in the video game Battlefield 4:

Contents


Handguns

Handguns are the only class of weapon to be equipped in the secondary slot in multiplayer (with the single exception of the Serbu Shorty 870). They offer a faster transition time than reloading a primary weapon. In an odd departure from Battlefield 3, magazine-fed handguns all use identical reloading animations. Hammers are in the proper positions for single action firing, if available. Handguns offer relatively high damage (even more so with revolvers) at very short range and low damage at distance. Attachments available include lights, lasers, barrel attachments, and both iron and optical sights. Revolvers may not be suppressed.

Beretta M9

The Beretta M9 returns from Battlefield 3 and is the second sidearm to be unlocked. It is nearly identical to the P226 in performance aside from a slightly different recoil pattern. The M9 is the United States military designation for the 92FS. When utilizing accessories such as lights and lasers, the M9A1 variant with an integrated rail would be more appropriate. The M9 requires a score of 4000 points earned with pistols to unlock. The in-game model is also used for the three-round burst "93R", although it started out with a 20+1 capacity (despite using a 15-round magazine model), after a patch it now has a 15+1 capacity just like the standard M9. Beretta M9s are seen holstered on Clayton "Pac" Pakowski and the United States Marine Corps Support character's chest holster. The Russian Recon and Support troops are also seen carrying M9s for whatever reason. The US Support character model is the only American unit which has an M9 on them. The other USMC soldiers carry Glock 17's in various holsters.

Stock "93R" in the loadout menu. Note that this is a re-used M9 model with a 93R-like front grip ticked on. Also note the flush 15-round magazine.

Chiappa Rhino 40DS

A Chiappa Rhino revolver with a 4-inch barrel appears in the DLC Naval Strike, called the "SW40". The Rhino's visible hammer does not move while firing, which is actually correct, as the gun has an internal hammer and the visible part is simply a lever used to cock the internal hammer, which does not stay back after the internal hammer is cocked, nor does it move while firing (a comparison could be made to an AR-15 or MP5 charging handle, which only moves when moved by the user, as they are separate from the bolt).

Sometimes bugs can cause the cylinder and cartridges to disappear entirely.

CZ 75 SP-01 SHADOW

The CZ 75 SP-01 SHADOW chambered in .40S&W appears as the "CZ-75" and is an unlockable sidearm in the game, holding 12+1 rounds. It is a factory-custom, competition oriented variant of the popular CZ 75. This pistol requires a score of 45000 points earned with pistols to unlock.

FN Five-seveN

The FN Five-seveN is available in multiplayer as an unlockable sidearm and holds 20+1 rounds. In-game, the Five-seven does slightly less damage than 9x19mm pistols but benefits from having superior accuracy and a large magazine capacity. The Five-seveN requires 28000 points with handguns to unlock.

Glock 17

On the cover art, as well as other promotional artwork, Recker is seen holding a Glock 17 with a flashlight attached to it. The standard version has the same tan frame as the game's Glock 18. It is only seen in the singleplayer campaign, used by NPCs. Pac wields the Glock 17 as his standard sidearm throughout the campaign (Even though he has a Beretta M9 in his chest holster), Captain Garrison uses one with a black frame in the level "South China Sea", as well as Agent Kovic in Shanghai. Like the previous game, the black frame model is seen holstered on almost all USMC soldiers, except the support character (Which uses Pac's body model) in multiplayer, They have a holstered Beretta M9 in a chest holster.

Recker takes a closer look at Captain Garrison's Glock 17, the only clear appearance of the black frame in game at the end of the South China Sea chapter.

Glock 18

The Glock 18 is the only fully-automatic capable handgun in the game. It features a 1100 round per minute fire rate and has a 17+1 round capacity (previously 19+1). The Glock 18 requires 23000 points with handguns to unlock. It is worth noting that, as in Battlefield 3, it actually reuses the G17's model with an 18's selector switch - it features all the cocking serrations, instead of the middle portion being flat where the fire mode markings should be.

Glock 18C (3rd Generation) - 9x19mm. Note that the one in-game is the non-compensated Glock 18.
Stock Glock 18 in the loadout menu. The magazine model is set too far up the grip as the baseplate is not visible at all.
Glock 18 being held.
Glock 18 iron sight. While the rear sight is the standard factory Glock plastic sight, the front sight is oddly triangular in shape. Another oddity is that the front dot and rear rectangular border on the sights are green instead of white.

Heckler & Koch HK45C

The Heckler & Koch HK45C is the last sidearm to be unlocked in multiplayer, and is listed as the "Compact 45" presumably for trademark reasons; however, DICE's internal file name for the pistol remains "HK45C". The model has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter, It uses the 10-round extended "elephant foot" magazines, and has the threaded barrel of the 45CT. The actual HK45CT has been adopted by United States Naval Special Warfare units in limited numbers as the Mk 24 Mod 0 Combat Assault Pistol. The HK45C is the last handgun unlocked via score in multiplayer, requiring 57000 points with handguns.

IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX

The Desert Eagle Mark XIX chambered in .44 Magnum appears as the "DEagle 44" in the Dragon's Teeth DLC and holds 8+1 rounds. Fitting the "Compensator" attachment to the weapon will add the factory IWI muzzle brake (referred to in the second image). However, fitting the "muzzle brake" attachment will utilize the same generic brake used on other pistols. This handgun is unlocked with the completion of the "Recoil Kinetics" assignment.

Marlin Model 1894

A custom Marlin Model 1894 lever-action rifle is included in the Spring 2015 Patch and is modernized with rails, a stainless steel finish, custom sights, a custom lever, engravings, and a short stock and barrel. Referred to in-game as the "Mare's Leg".

Mateba Model 6 Unica

The Mateba Model 6 Unica appears as the "Unica 6" in the Dragon's Teeth DLC. If the Compensator attachment is used, the gun will use its own unique compensator instead of the generic P226 compensator for most other handguns. A 3x scope is also available in addition to the standard selection of sights. It is unlocked with the completion of the "Big Splash" assignment.

The upper assembly cycling as the revolver is fired. This is correct as the real Unica is a recoil operated semi-automatic revolver. The upper assembly is on rails and recoils 1/2 a inch when fired, the rearward travel cocks the hammer and the cylinder is rotated when the upper assembly returns forward.
Reloading. Emptying the cylinder of spent brass with the ejector rod.
Loading up with a speedloader.
After dropping the speedloader in an flamboyant matter, the cylinder is swung shut, which is a bad idea in general and even more so with a incredibly rare revolver such as the Unica.

MP-412 REX

The MP-412 REX first appears in the singleplayer campaign, with Dunn giving it to Recker to shoot out the windshield of the car as it's sinking into the ocean after a total eclipse of the heart. The MP-412 was never put in full production, so its presence in a United States MARSOC unit could only be explained as a war trophy, taken from Russian forces. The player must simply complete the first mission of the singleplayer campaign, "Baku", to unlock it in multiplayer.

MP-443 Grach

The MP-443 Grach returns from Battlefield 3 and features one of the higher handgun magazine capacities at 17+1. It is unlocked in multiplayer by earning 13000 points with pistols. Curiously, the MP-443 is not seen holstered on Russian Army soldiers. Instead, they have holstered Chinese Norinco QSZ-92-5.8's.

Norinco QSZ-92-5.8

The Norinco QSZ-92-5.8 appears in Battlefield 4. The weapon has flip-flopped between 15-round and 20-round magazine capacities, starting with 20 in the beta, 15 in the final release, then patched back to 20 later. In reality, both 15-round and 20-round magazines for the 5.8x21mm rounds are in existence. The QSZ-92 requires 8000 points earned with pistols to unlock. QSZ-92 is correctly holstered all Chinese Army soldiers, but it's also seen in Kimble "Irish" Grave's holster and even Russian Army soldier's holsters.

SIG-Sauer P226R

The SIG-Sauer P226R is the starting pistol for all classes. The model has been brought over from Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The P226 is one of the few weapons in-game depicted with a threaded barrel. It holds 15+1 rounds.

Taurus Model 44

The Taurus Model 44, once again listed as the ".44 Magnum", is available in multiplayer as the second to last sidearm unlocked. It can kill with just two shots in close range. It has a 3x scope available in addition to the standard selection of sights. It requires 51000 points earned with pistols to unlock.

Vickers Tactical Custom 1911

A one-off custom variant of the M1911, made by Larry Vickers of Vickers Tactical specifically for Medal of Honor: Warfighter, replaces the M45 MEU(SOC) from Battlefield 3. Noticeably, the Vickers trademarks are removed, and it now uses a 7-round magazine compared to 8 from the last game. It is one of the later sidearms unlocked in multiplayer, requiring 34000 handgun points. It has a 3x scope available in addition to the standard selection of sights. The original M45 MEU(SOC) or the newer Colt M45A1 would have been a far more realistic choice as they are actually in service with the United States Marine Corps Special Operations Command. The M45A1 was however put into service by the US Marines after this game's release.

Submachine Guns

Unlike the previous game, SMGs and any other weapons that appeared under the "PDW" category are now exclusive to the Engineer class. Their once-exclusive carbines are now all-kit weapons. These weapons categorized as PDWs typically offer superior close-range effectiveness - ironic considering the large, vehicle-based maps where engineers excel. Most are chambered in a pistol caliber and come with excellent hip-fire and mobility in game. Attachments available include lights, lasers, barrel attachments, grips, and both iron and optical sights. Also, all returning SMGs and PDWs from the previous game, where applicable, now come with their high-capacity magazines by default (eg. The MP7 default magazine is its extended 40-rounder, while the Magpul PDR's default magazine is the standard-capacity 30-round PMAG).

Beretta Mx4 Storm

The Beretta Mx4 Storm, the select-fire military variant of the Cx4 is available in multiplayer. It is listed simply as the "Mx4". It is the starting weapon of all three factions' Engineer classes.

CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1

The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1 appears as the "CZ-3A1", and features the highest rate of fire among the PDWs (and matching the FAMAS). Interestingly, the default iron sights (correct as Evo factory sights) are used as the default iron sights for a number of other weapons in the game. It requires 37000 points earned with PDWs to unlock.

FN P90 TR

The FN P90 TR is used by extensively by Hanna in the campaign and can also be used by the player. In order to unlock it in the multiplayer, one has to complete the game with one of the three endings. The magazine is opaque instead of the translucent, which is very common in games featuring P90s.

Heckler & Koch MP7A1

The MP7A1 is featured in the China Rising DLC. It is unlocked with the completion of the "Make a Dent" assignment. The model and reload animation has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter. As in Battlefield 3, the MP7A1 is one of the only weapons that retain both front and rear iron sights when attaching an optic. When in use without an optic, the MP7 uses its folded-down pistol sights, as opposed to its fliped up rifle sights seen in other games, such as Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Rainbow Six: Vegas 1 & 2. This time, it comes default with the extended 40-round magazine.

Heckler & Koch UMP45

The Heckler & Koch UMP45 is an available PDW in the game. Unlike Battlefield 3, the front sight assembly is removed when equipped with optics. In real life, this would not be possible without permanently altering the weapon. Unlike its 9mm brother, the UMP45 is present in the unlock tree for PDWs, and does not require the player to complete an assignment. The UMP-45 requires 11000 score with PDWs to acquire.

Heckler & Koch UMP9

The Heckler & Koch UMP9 is an unlockable PDW in the game, through the "Engineer Expert" assignment. As with the UMP45, the front sight assembly is removed when equipped with optics, which would permanently alter the weapon.

Jian She Type-05

The Jian She Type-05 appears in-game as the "JS2" and is the last PDW unlocked. Following the Spring 2015 update, the caliber chambering was updated from 5.8x21mm (50+1 rounds) to 9x19mm (30+1 rounds), ending the caliber confusion with the QCQ-05. It is the final unlocked weapon in the PDW set, requiring a PDW score of 48000.

PP-2000

The PP-2000 is available in multiplayer. This time around, it has a 44-round magazine by default. It is an unlockable PDW requiring 4000 points earned with PDWs.

Saab Bofors Dynamics CBJ-MS

The Saab Bofors Dynamics CBJ-MS appears in-game as an unlockable PDW. It has the highest muzzle velocity in its class, due to its unique 6.5x25mm round. The weapon model shows a 100-round drum magazine, but it actually only holds 50+1 rounds in-game, most likely for balancing purposes. It requires 19000 PDW points to unlock.

SIG-Sauer MPX

The SIG-Sauer MPX appears in the Dragon's Teeth DLC, and is chambered in .40 S&W and in the standard 6.5" barrel configuration. It features a magazine capacity of 30+1. Interestingly, the MPX is the most recently developed firearm in the game, released by SIG-Sauer in 2014, some time after the original game was released. It is unlocked via the "Not the Weakest Link" assignment.

Shotguns

Shotguns in Battlefield 4 are equipped in the primary weapon slot with the exception of the Serbu Super Shorty (a secondary), M26 MASS (a gadget), and the USAS-12 (a battle pickup). The game features pump-action, semi-automatic, and fully-automatic (USAS-12 only) shotguns fed from either a tube or detachable magazine. Unique to this weapon category, the player may choose from a variety of ammunition types - buckshot, flechette, slug, and explosive Frag-12 rounds. In addition to optics, lights, lasers, and grips, the player may equip muzzle devices such as chokes, brakes, and compensators. Shotguns may not be suppressed in the game. Shotguns are available to all classes with the exception of the M26 MASS, which is only available to the Assault class.

Benelli M1

A Benelli M1 with a fixed stock and top rail incorrectly replaces the the proper Benelli M4 with a collapsible stock from BF3 as the "M1014". It is identical to the one in Medal of Honor 2010's singleplayer. It does average damage per shot when compared to the other shotguns, but this is balanced with a very high rate of fire and fast reload time. The Benelli M1 requires 11000 score with shotguns to unlock.

A rather odd detail with the Benelli M1, when attaching any 1x optic (except for the FLIR scope), an additional rail section is added onto the barrel in front of the main rail section for whatever reason. This doesn't happen when using any magnifying optic.

Cobray Street Sweeper

The SWD/Cobray Street Sweeper, called "DAO-12" in the game, is an unlockable shotgun in the Second Strike DLC. The reloading animation differs (more realistically) from the Battlefield 3 DAO-12 in that the player will manually turn the key in front of the drum after inserting each shell.

Daewoo USAS-12

The Daewoo USAS-12 appears in the game as a battle pickup and is the only fully automatic shotgun. It usually is configured with an EOTech sight and ergo grip, though a FLIR 2x sight with angled foregrip version is present on some maps. It will always be equipped with the "Laser Light Combo" (AN/PEQ-15) and frag rounds. In singleplayer, however, another variant loaded with slugs and equipped with the Prismatic 3.4x scope can be unlocked in the "South China Sea" level after scoring 10000 points. It holds 10+1 rounds from a box magazine, and appears to have the standard carrying handle permanently removed for a rail.

"DBV-12"

The "DBV-12", supposed to represent the AK-12/76 (an AK-12 modified to fire shotgun shells, like the the original AK's Saiga 12), is the last unlockable shotgun in multiplayer. It requires 59000 points earned with shotguns and is the last weapon in the shotgun list.

Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 has been seen in multiple public multiplayer events. It operates only in pump-action mode, just like in the Bad Company series and Battlefield 3. In-game the weapon holds 9 (8+1) rounds and requires a score of 37000 with shotguns.

The lack of sights didn't get in the way of Recker stopping the PLAN boarding party, however. The bug fixes itself once the player interacts with any weapon crates.

Hawk 97-2

The Hawk 97-2 pump-action shotgun appears as the "Hawk 12G". It is the most powerful of the pump-action shotguns but with the largest spread and pellet count at 14 pellets. It requires a shotgun score of 19000.

M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System

The M26 Modular Accessory Shotgun System is once again an unlockable shotgun "gadget" exclusive to the Assault class. It can be used standalone or attached to certain assault rifles. As with the previous game, multiple ammunition types are available, obtained through the Assault Kits level progression. When equipped by itself it is outfitted with a Trijicon reflex sight.

QBS-09

The QBS-09 is the default shotgun available once shotguns are unlocked through progression of the Support class. It is the most powerful semi-automatic shotgun in the game at present, offsetting its rather low 5+1 round capacity. It requires 16000 score with the Support kit to unlock.

Remington 870 MCS

The Remington 870 MCS returns and now holds 7+1 rounds, indicating an 18" barrel and +3 magazine tube extension. It is an unlockable weapon requiring 4000 shotgun score. It is the most balanced of the Pump Action shotguns with no significant faults.

Serbu Super Shorty

A Remington 870-based Serbu Super Shorty appears the "Shorty 12G" . It has an integrated accessory rail on top of the receiver, and can mount a Trijicon RMR or Leupold DeltaPoint sight in addition to a ghost ring iron sight setup borrowed from the handguns. It cannot be aimed unless equipped with a sight accessory, and can only use buckshot rounds. It has a correct 2+1 capacity. It is available in multiplayer as a secondary. Although unlocked with 18000 pistol score, it contributes points towards the other shotguns rather than the rest of the handguns.

The UTAS UTS-15 appears in multiplayer. It is the weakest in terms of the primary pump action shotguns but has the highest capacity and the most range and tightest spread by default. During an empty reload, the chamber loading animation depicts the first shell as being erroneously inserted backwards. It requires 48000 shotgun score to unlock.

Assault Rifles & Battle Rifles

This category generally spans the in-game weapon classes of assault rifles, designated marksmen rifles, and carbines. Assault rifles are exclusive to the Assault class, while carbines and DMRs are an all-kit weapon. DMRs feature higher damage and range but are semi-auto only, limiting their close-range effectiveness. The entire selection of attachments and close to medium-range optics are available to equip, and some assault rifles can directly mount an M320 or an M26 MASS.

5.56A-91

The 5.56A-91 returns in multiplayer as a carbine. It once again has the incorrect designation of "A-91" and still has the integral 40mm grenade launcher removed, but this time around, it seems to also be incorrectly chambered in 5.45x39mm, possibly indicating a fictional future variant or it is meant to be the nearly identical ADS Dual Medium variant. It requires 28000 carbine score to unlock.

AEK-971

The AK-12 is available in the game as the starting assault rifle for all factions. Interestingly, the rifles three-round burst fire has a higher ROF than it has in full-auto.

AK-12U

The AK-12U, a sub-carbine version of the AK-12 with a shortened gas system and barrel also appears in the game, and has stats similar to the Ak 5C, but with a slightly slower rate of fire and less overall recoil. It is referred to as the "AKU-12" in-game, and requires 19000 carbine score to unlock.

AN-94

The AN-94 returned from Battlefield 3 in the Spring 2015 Patch. The AN-94's (in)famous 2-round burst fire is set to 1200 rounds per minute (as opposed to the 1800 RPM in real life) , when firing in full-auto however, the first two rounds are not in 1200 RPM unlike the real AN-94, instead it's 600 RPM flat. Why it's not correctly featured like in BF3 is unknown.

AS Val

The AS Val appears as a PDW in the "Second Assault" DLC. It is integrally suppressed, so no other barrel attachments are available. It is unlocked via the "Co-pilot" assignment, and is also the only returning PDW to not use its high-capacity magazine, instead making do with its standard-capcity 20-round mag. It was initially erroneously depicted with an optional three-round burst mode, a feature that the real AS Val does not have. This was removed later in a patch. The AS Val's reload animations partially reuse the Mk. 14 Mod 0 EBR's empty reload animation from Medal of Honor: Warfighter.

Beretta ARX-160

The Beretta ARX-160 appears in the Naval Strike DLC as the "AR-160" assault rifle, holding 30+1 rounds. It requires the completion of the "Spare Time Sniper" assignment for it to unlock. The weapon model is notably glitched and much smaller in size compared to other similar sized weapons, though not noticeable in first person (if no attachments are equipped) due to scaling.

The ARX-160 is strangely small in-game, a good way to get a sense of how small it is, is to fit it with an M320. The M320 is a big grenade launcher, but on the ARX-160 it's almost as big as the rifle!

Bofors Ak 5C

The Bofors Ak 5C is the first carbine the player can use in the game. The model has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter, unlike some weapons brought over however, the Ak 5C has new animations in BF4. It requires a score of 15000 Engineer points to unlock.

Colt M16A4 MWS

The Colt M16A4 MWS is the only returning M16 in BF4, leaving its (infamously powerful) full-auto brother back in BF3. The rifle is unlocked at 59,000 assault rifle points in multiplayer.

Unlike the M16A4's used by the Marines, the in-game model uses a Hogue pistol grip. Note that the rifle is set to semi instead of burst. Taking a closer look at the selector reveals that what should be semi is actually called "fire" and the spot that should be "burst" is blank. Taking this into account and the rifles lack of a bayonet lug under the front-sight hints at the possibility that the rifle is modeled after a civilian version, likely the Stag Arms AR-15 variant.
Note that there doesn't appear to be any proper texture on the bolt, it appears to all grey.

Colt M4 Carbine

The M4 returns in BF4 without its full-auto M4A1 counterpart. In some initial trailers, the carbine was seen firing in full-auto, like the M4A1, but in the final game the carbine is instead the 3-round burst-firing M4. The carbine is unlocked at 59,000 carbine points.

The M4 is fitted with a Hogue pistol grip and a VLTOR retractable stock unlike actual military-issue M4s. The carbine has the same fire-selector goof as the M16A4. Also, on top of not having a bayonet lug, the M4 also lacks the cut in the barrel to allow the attachment of an M203.
Like the M16, the M4's bolt has a strange texture.

CZ S805 A

The prototype version of the CZ 805 BREN, the CZ S805 A, appears as the "CZ-805". It holds 30+1 rounds and is the last assault rifle to be unlocked, requiring 71000 assault rifle score.

FAMAS Surbaissé

The FAMAS Surbaissé is unlocked once the player reaches 37,000 points in assault rifles. It has the highest rate of fire of all assault rifles at 1000 RPM but is balanced by its 25-round magazine and high recoil. The ubiquitous bipod can be equipped, though its practical usefulness in the game is questionable. The variant in-game is fitted with a FAMAS G1 lower receiver, which includes the enlarged trigger-guard, redesigned foregrip, and the older F1 mag well that is correctly shown loaded with the straight 25-round proprietary magazines.

Two FN SCAR-H rifles appear in BF4, the standard 16 inch barreled version as an assault rifle called the "SCAR-H", and the 20 inch barreled version as a DMR called the "SCAR-H SV". The model has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter The SCAR-H is unlocked at 4000 assault rifle points while the SV version requires 82000 DMR points.

The new model, brought over from Medal of Honor: Warfighter, is a far more accurate representation of current HK416 iterations. It is still called the "M416", presumably to avoid trademark issues. It requires an assault rifle score of 11000 to unlock.

IMI Galil ACE 21

The IMI Galil ACE 21 appears as the "ACE 21 CQB" and is classified as a carbine. It is the shorter-barreled variant of the ACE 23, and also holds 35+1 rounds. It requires a carbine score of 71000 to unlock. Both the ACE 21 and ACE 23 have 7.62x51mm markings on the receiver, this indicates they reuse the 7.62x51mm variant's model.

The IWI X95 was added with the "China Rising" DLC as a carbine. It is also known as the MTAR-21, and is referred to as such in the game. This variant fires 5.56x45mm NATO rounds and comes with the non-flattop standard IDF configuration with a 13-inch barrel. It is the latest evolution of the Tavor series of rifles. It has a capacity of 30+1 rounds and requires the completion of the "Multi Talent" assignment to unlock.

Kel-Tec RFB Target

The 32" barreled Target variant of the Kel-Tec RFB is available as a DMR in multiplayer. A Daniel Defense RIS II, compatible only with the AR-15 platform, is erroneously mounted in front of the handguard. This is probably meant to stand in for Kel-Tec Quad Rail attachment for the RFB. It is the first unlockable DMR in the game, being available once reaching 13000 points with the Recon kit.

The Yugoslavian M59/66 variant of the SKS rifle returns from Battlefield 3 as a designated marksman rifle. The spigot-type grenade launcher muzzle differentiates the M59/66 from other SKS variants. The integral bayonet has been removed and it has also been modified to accept detachable box magazines, holding 20 rounds in-game. The original wood furniture is replaced with a modern synthetic Tapco one with a retractable AR-15 stock system. It requires a DMR score of 11000.

The Magpul PDR-C returns from Battlefield 3, this time as an Engineer-only PDW. The Magpul PDR series was only intended as a design study and never made it past the development stage. Perhaps the game assumes its production in the near future. Unlike most PDW style weapons, it is chambered in the NATO standard 5.56x45mm round with forward ejection, and a utilizes a 12" barrel. It requires a score of 28000 with PDWs to unlock.

The STK SAR 21 is an unlockable assault rifle. It features a low but highly controllable rate of fire, and good accuracy. It has a capacity of 30+1 rounds. Note that the variant used in game is the SAR 21 MMS (Modular Mounting System). It requires 19000 score with assault rifles.

"SVD-12"

The "SVD-12" appears as a designated marksman rifle version of the AK-12, and is supposed to represent the Kalashnikov SVK. It features the lowest capacity of all DMRs with 15+1 rounds, but has the fastest velocity, making shots easier to land at long range. In-game it is referred to as the "SVD-12" and is listed as being chambered in 7.62x54mmR. It requires a DMR score of 19000 to unlock.

Machine Guns

This category lists the light and medium / general-purpose machine guns available for the player to equip. All are limited only to the support class. Open bolt operation is correctly portrayed (with the exception of the Ultimax Mark 5) in the reload animations and the ammunition belt visibly depletes when approaching empty. Unlike Medal of Honor: Warfighter, there is no overheating gameplay mechanic and the player may continuously fire as long as ammunition remains. Players may outfit all close and medium-range optics with the exception of canted iron sights. For the most part, when optics are equipped, the front sight assembly is removed. Compared to assault rifles and carbines, machine guns deal greater suppression to enemies and have lower first round recoil multipliers.

AAI LSAT

The AAI LSAT (Lightweight Small Arms Technologies) light machine gun returns from Battlefield 3. It is currently in the developmental stages to demonstrate the latest in lightweight LMG design. This is mainly achieved via two new types of ammunition - a cased telescoped 5.56mm round (as shown in the Battlefield series) and a caseless 5.56mm variant. Interestingly, a round counter developed with the LSAT does not make an appearance in game. It requires 11000 LMG score to unlock.

Ares-16 MCR

The Ares-16 MCR appears as the "AWS" and is a weapon introduced in Naval Strike DLC. It is fitted with a 100-round C-Mag giving it a 100+1 capacity, providing more ammo than the Norinco QBB-95-1 as a magazine-fed light machine gun (and a much higher rate of fire too). It is unlocked via the "Swiss Cheese" assignment.

FN M240B

The M240B returns from Battlefield 3. It is the standard medium machine gun of the United States Army, chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO and a derivative of the FN MAG, one of the most widely fielded machine guns in the world. It requires 37000 LMG score. In the Dragon's Teeth DLC, a M240 variant is mounted on the "RAWR", Battlefield 4's version of the MAARS robot (Like the other firearms, the RAWR's model and function has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter).

FN M249 SAW PIP

The FN M249 SAW returns from Battlefield 3. A derivative of the FN Minimi, it is the standard light machine gun of the various branches of the United States military. The model has been updated from Battlefield 3, brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter, This variant features the Product Improvement Package (PIP) which includes an updated retractable stock, railed handguard assembly, and a short barrel. Interestingly, the United States Marine Corps, as shown in this game, currently fields the M27 Infantry Automatic Rifle (previously in Battlefield 3) as a partial replacement for the M249. The game incorrectly depicts the 100-round soft bag magazine as holding 200 rounds. It is not unlocked through multiplayer, requring completion of the "Final Duty" campaign achievement.

Heckler & Koch MG4

The Heckler & Koch MG4 is the standard light machine gun for the German Bundeswehr (military), gas operated, belt-fed, and fires the 5.56x45mm NATO round. The model has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It appears as the standard full length version and is the last LMG to be unlocked in multiplayer, with a required LMG score of 48000.

M60E4/MK43 MOD1

The M60E4 is a medium machine gun released with the Second Assault DLC. It is an updated version of the M60, previously the standard general purpose machine gun of the United States armed forces - type classified as the MK43 MOD1. It requires the completion of the "Dust Devil" assignment to unlock. A version of the gun appears as the M60 ULT, it is a battle pickup that fires explosive rounds, it has a 150 round belt and cannot be aimed down the sights.

Norinco QBB-95

"QBB-95-1"

The Norinco QBB-95 returns from Battlefield 3; it is referred to as the "QBB-95-1", but it is actually the older QBB-95. It is the light machine gun variant of the Chinese Type 95 family of weapons and is fielded by the People's Liberation Army. It fires the Chinese 5.8x42mm round from a 75-round drum magazine. It has the second-highest capacity of all magazine-fed weapons in the game. It is unlocked by acquiring 15,000 points with LMGs.

"QBZ-95-1"

The so called "QBZ-95-1" assault rifle in Battlefield 4 is actually a QBB-95 using 30-round magazines. This is evident as it lacks the new foregrip design and features the old QB design of having the fire-selector on the stock, not above the the pistol grip like the newer QBZ-95-1, as well as having the barrel length of a QBB-95. It is unlocked by completing the "To Valhalla" campaign assignment.

Norinco QJY-88

The Norinco QJY-88 returns from Battlefield 3. It is a gas operated, belt-fed light machine gun currently in service with the Chinese People's Liberation Army. It fires the Chinese 5.8x42mm round. The QJY-88 is also known as (and referred to in-game as) the Type 88 LMG - not to be confused with the Type 88 sniper rifle (Norinco QBU-88) that is also in the game. It is the first unlockable LMG, requiring a 4000 score with LMGs.

PKP Pecheneg

The PKP Pecheneg is a gas-operated, belt-fed general purpose machine gun in limited service with the Russian Armed Forces, chambered in the 7.62x54mmR round. Like the earlier PK series of machine guns, it feeds from the right and ejects to the left, which is correctly portrayed in the game. It requires 19000 LMG score. Unlike the previous iteration in BF3 and all other machine guns in-game, the PKP's reload animation has the charging handle pulled last rather than at the start of a reload.

RPK

The RPK light machine gun was added as part of the China Rising DLC. Originally it was incorrectly referred to as the RPK-74M with the 5.45x39mm chambering and 45-round capacity to match, but the weapon model is actually modeled on the older 7.62 RPK, as can be noted by its wood furniture and magazine curvature. Following the Spring 2015 patch, the caliber has been changed to the correct 7.62x39mm and magazine capacity reduced to an accurate 40 rounds. As of the Summer 2015 patch, it has been properly renamed to simply "RPK", as it still kept the "RPK-74M" name up until then. The RPK and RPK-74/74M are light machine gun variants of the AKM and AK-74/74M, respectively - all in use within the Russian Armed Forces and widely exported.

RPK-12

The RPK-12 is the light machine gun variant of the AK-12; the near-future setting of the game could indicate this as a future development. The game model appears to differ only in the barrel length and magazine. In-game it fires the same 5.45x39mm round and uses a 60-round quad-stack magazine that was developed for the AK-12. It is unlocked by completing the "Support Expert" assignment.

STK Ultimax 100 Mark 5

The STK Ultimax 100 Mark 5 appears as the starting weapon for the Support class. In-game, it is incorrectly depicted (stat wise) as a closed-bolt weapon that can chamber a +1 round on top of its 30-round magazine. Another note is that this Ultimax 100 Mark 5 is modeled with the heavier barrel of the older variants.

Sniper Rifles

This category spans all of Battlefield 4's bolt action sniper rifles, and some precision-oriented semi-automatic rifles. Sniper rifles include all bolt-actions smaller than .50 caliber and the semi-auto FD338, and are exclusive to the Recon class only. These weapons have the entire selection of short to long-range optics available to equip, and some unique modifications such as laser range finders and straight-pull bolts. Designated marksmen rifles are available to all classes and fire in semi-auto. They cannot equip long-range optics. Additionally, the Barrett M107 and the AMR-2 are the two sniper rifle battle pickups in the game, both .50 caliber.

The long-range optics the Sniper Rifles can equip, from lowest to highest magnification, are: The 6x "CL6X" (Trijicon TA648-308 ACOG) the 7x PKS-07, the 8x "Rifle Scope" (VisionKing VS1.5-5x30QZ) the 20x "Hunter Scope" (Delta Titanium 3-24x56 scope) and the 40x "Ballistic Scope" (Schmidt & Bender/Premier Reticles USMC M8541 3-12x50 scope)

What's interesting to note is that the "CL6X" scope is the default scope for the Chinese sniper riles while the "Rifle Scope" is the default for most western rifles. The CL6X is referred to as a Chinese scope despite being made by an American company (Trijicon) while the Rifle scope is mentioned as being a scope of western design but is made by a Chinese manufacture ( VisionKing).

Accuracy International L115A3

The AWM-F, in British military service as the L115A3, was added with the "China Rising" DLC. Before the 2015 Spring Patch it was referred to as the L96A1 and held 10+1 rounds of 7.62x51 NATO. The aforementioned patch changed the name to L115 and gave it the correct 5+1 capacity of .338 Lapua Magnum. It could be distinguished from a L96A1 due to its larger magazine, side-folding stock, and fluted barrel, as well as the bottom of the stock being cut out for a monopod mount.

China South Industries Group AMR-2

The AMR-2 appears as a battle pickup in the game on select multiplayer maps. It is a bolt-action, 12.7x108mm Chinese sniper rifle that holds 5+1 rounds. It is called the "AMR-2", "AMR-2 MID", or "AMR-2 CQB", depending on its optic configuration, the CQB versions uses a "PRISMA 3.4x" optic, a SIGTAC CP1 Prismatic 3x scope, the MID uses a "CL6X" scope, a Trijicon TA648-308 ACOG 6x scope, and the "ordinary" variant uses a "Hunter 20x" scope, a Delta Titanium 3-24x56. A fictional laser range finder is always mounted (an AN/PEQ-11 with the rear end altered into a display).

Barrett M107

The Barrett M107 in-game is incorrectly dubbed as the "M82A3", despite it not having a raised top rail and not lacking a rear grip and monopod socket. It is a semi-auto .50 BMG sniper rifle battle pickup in the game, called the "M82A3", "M82A3 MID", or "M82A3 CQB", depending on which scope its utilizing, the CQB versions uses a ELCAN M145 MGO 3.4x optic, the MID uses a 8x scope, a VisionKing VS1.5-5x30QZ, and the "ordinary" variant uses a 40x scope, a Schmidt & Bender/Premier Reticles 3-12x50 USMC M8541. It holds 10+1 rounds and always comes with 11 rounds in reserve. The fictional laser range finder is always mounted (an AN/PEQ-11 with the rear end altered into a display).

Barrett Model 98 Bravo

The Barrett Model 98 Bravo returns from Battlefield 3, once again called the "M98B". This time around it correctly holds 10 rounds in the magazine, but unfortunately suffers from the "fat rail segment" ailment that afflicts many weapons that were ported over. It used to have the fastest bullet velocity of all the sniper rifles in the game, but after a patch the JNG-90's bullet velocity now beats the M98B's. It requires a sniper rifle score of 34000 to unlock.

Cheyenne Tactical M-200 Intervention

The Cheyenne Tactical M-200 Intervention is an unlockable bolt-action sniper rifle and is called the "SRR-61" in the game, named after the Jordanian 61st Special Reconnaissance Regiment, or SRR-61, who use the rifle. It holds 7+1 rounds and is the last sniper rifle unlocked, requiring 42000 sniper rifle points. It has the ability to defy gravity as its bullet drop is 6 m/s instead of 9.81 m/s.

F&D Defense FD338

The F&D Defense FD338 was added in the "Naval Strike" DLC and is the only semi-auto sniper rifle in the game that's actually a part of the Sniper Rifle category. It holds 10+1 rounds of .338 Lapua Magnum. Despite being chambered in the aforementioned caliber, its damage model is significantly lower than its bolt-action .338 counterparts in order to balance its semi-auto advantage, to the point that it was the only sniper rifle incapable of killing in a single shot regardless of distance or hit location (It was so low that even a point-blank headshot couldn't kill a full-health enemy). The weapon has since been patched in an October 2014 update to allow it to kill with a single headshot out to a fairly short distance. The rifle is incorrectly depicted as having a reciprocating charging handle, which also locks a uselessly small distance to the rear when empty.

Jian She CS/LR3

The Jian She CS/LR3, also known as the "FY-JS" in the game, is the 5.8x42mm variant of the CS/LR4. Unlike it's larger caliber sibling, the FY-JS has a standard finish instead the permanent camo on the CS/LR4, like a lot of variants have in the game.

The rifle requires the player to complete various tasks in order for it to unlock. Its stats makes it seem like the best long-range sniper in the game until one realizes that its lowest damage is lower than 50. This means that at extreme ranges one has to pull two headshots or three body shots on a player with full health in order to kill them, which isn't easy.

Jian She CS/LR4

The Jian She CS/LR4 is the starting weapon for the Recon class. It is a bolt-action, magazine-fed rifle of Chinese origin with a capacity of 5+1 rounds (it was initially 10+1 but this was corrected in a patch) and is a well-rounded sniper rifle in-game.

M14 with Sage stock

An M14 fitted inside a Sage stock, incorrectly called a M39 Enhanced Marksman Rifle (or M39 EMR) makes its first appearance on the cover art of the game, with Recker holding one fitted with various accessories. In the multiplayer it's classified as a DMR, requiring 37000 points in the DMR category to unlock. It holds 20+1 rounds.

It can be distinguished from an actual M39 by its shorter gas cylinder below the barrel.

This M14 is fitted with a scope that is bigger than both the Hunter (20x) and the Ballistic (40x) scopes, a AN/PEQ-15 laser designator/sight, a flashlight, Harris bipod, and suppressor. The scope and AN/PEQ-15 are not available in the game and you can not equip both a laser sight and a flashlight at the same time in-game. He is holding a Glock 17 fitted with a flashlight in his right hand.

M40A5

The M40A5 appears in multiplayer and is built on the Remington Model 700 platform with significant upgrades, including a precision trigger, detachable 5-round magazine, SureFire compensator, and a McMillan stock. This configuration is currently in service with the United States Marine Corps and replaced the M40A3. It is an unlockable weapon that requires 3000 sniper rifle score.

McMillan CS5

The McMillan CS5 appears as the "CS5" in the Dragon's Teeth DLC. The model and animations has been brought over from Medal of Honor: Warfighter. It comes with a suppressor attached by default, but it can be removed at the player's discretion.

MKEK JNG-90

The MKEK JNG-90 returns from Battlefield 3. It was initially a rather run-of-the-mill rifle, but after a patch it now has the fastest bullet velocity of all sniper rifles, beating the M98B. It requires a sniper rifle score of 20000.

Steyr Elite

the Steyr Elite appears in the game. It is the 5.56x45mm version and has a capacity of 10+1 rounds. Despite being one of the weaker hitting sniper rifles, it features a fast rate of fire, aim speed, and bullet velocity to balance the low damage. It requires 8000 points with sniper rifles to unlock.

Launchers

FGM-148 Javelin

The FGM-148 Javelin has been seen in multiple public multiplayer events. It is no-longer a fire and forget weapon, requiring a constant lock in order to successfully make a hit.

FGM-172 SRAW

The FGM-172 SRAW returns from Battlefield 2 and is once again (incorrectly) depicted as being wire-guided. It can be seen at the beginning of the "Levolution" trailer, and has also been seen in multiple public multiplayer events.

FIM-92A Stinger

After the player disembarks the helicopter in the E3 multiplayer demo, a soldier is seen running with an FIM-92A Stinger. It has also been seen in multiple public multiplayer events. It is considered a fire and forget launcher but has the shortest range of the portable AA Weapons.

Heckler & Koch M320

The Heckler & Koch M320 is first seen at the rather over-dramatic end of the singleplayer prologue, being used against an Mi-28 Havoc. In multiplayer it's a gadget unlockable for the Assault class. It can fire 40mm High Explosive Dual Purpose Grenades in addition to Dart, Smoke, Timed Fragmentation and later a Flashbang ammunition variant.

"M320 3GL"

The Naval Strike DLC added a fictional variant known as the "M320 3GL". It functions in a similar way to the real-world Metal Storm 3GL (from which its name is also taken) in that it fires 3 rounds from the same tube without reloading. However it simply reuses the standard M320 model used for the standard launcher, even to the point where it can be seen that only a single round is inserted into the tube during the reload animation.

The real-world Metal Storm 3GL 3-round grenade launcher in standalone configuration - 40mm. Note that this is significantly different to the "M320 3GL" model which appears in the game

Heckler & Koch XM25

The Heckler & Koch XM25 is usable by the Support class only. It too, like the M320 is capable of launching alternate ammunition ranging from its default Airburst, Dart, and Smoke rounds. Using Dart ammunition increases the fire rate and it behaves similar to a semi-automatic shotgun with a Infrared Scope.

MBT LAW

The MBT LAW has been seen in multiple public multiplayer events. It is the easiest to use but also the weakest of the launchers as the Rocket fired has a self guidence system, providing it's close to the target and will automatically attack the weakest point (top armor).

Milkor MGL Mk 1S

Recker is also seen wielding a Milkor MGL Mk 1S with Picatinny rails and reflex sights. The model has been brought in from Medal of Honor: Warfighter. When reloading, the whole 6 grenades are ejected from the cylinder, regardless of how many have been fired, and new ones are loaded, two grenades at a time. It is available as a Battle Pickup in multiplayer.

RPG-7V2

The RPG-7V2 returns from Battlefield 3, now with the correct rear tube cover of the V2 model. It is the most powerful of unguided Anti-Tank launchers but is also the hardest use at range due to the arcing trajectory of the rocket in flight.

SA-18 Grouse

The SA-18 Grouse has been seen in multiple public multiplayer events. It is once again called the "SA-18 Igla". In-game it behaves differently from Battlefield 3 instead forgoing the use as a fire and forget launcher for use as a constant lock launcher. In posses the longest range of the AA Launchers but requires a near constant lock to maintain a hit, alternatively, a target can be reacquired even if the target used counter measures providing the missile is still in flight.

Starstreak HVM

The shoulder launched Starstreak HVM launcher is available as a battle pickup in the game. It has only two shots and can engage both aircraft and armor. It is requires a constant lock to maintain a hit, however a lock can be reacquired even if a target used counter-measures. The Starstreak is most effective against enemy aircraft as opposed to enemy land vehicles such as enemy armor.

Metal Storm Technology Demonstrator

A turret utilizing the Metal Storm technology, called "Schipunov 42" for some reason, is accessible in the Final Stand DLC maps, functioning like a big shotgun that can take out infantry, light vehicles, and low flying choppers. It is based closely on the "Bertha" one million rpm concept demonstrator: this is a little strange, since "Bertha" was never intended to be a practical weapon system. It fires off four volleys before having to reload.

Rorsch Mk-1 Railgun

The only truly fictional firearm in the game, the "Mk-1" is a Railgun made by fictional manufacturer Rorsch who would later make the Rorsch Mk-S8 fixed railgun emplacement seen in Battlefield: 2142, which the Final Stand DLC is a prequel to. The railgun is a Battle Pickup that can be found at certain locations on the Final Stand maps. The stock portion of the rifle notably resembles the AW series, with the thumbhole stock, stock pad and spacers, location for the monopod, and general shape.

According to its description it fires heavy sabot rounds, and while they have an extremely high velocity as one would expect from a railgun, they are not technically hitscan (the projectiles travel at a velocity of about 5000 m/s! In comparison, the JNG-90 has the fastest bullet velocity for the sniper rifles in the game with projectiles going at about 690 m/s.) The rifle holds one round that deals very high damage, it can kill any infantry with one shot at any range and is the only non-explosive weapon in the game that can damage tanks. The projectile will produce a small explosion at the point of impact.

The fancy scope reticle. The scope have 2 different zoom levels. The default level appears to be 20 times with the lower being 12 times.
Firing the gun requires it to charge up for about a second before it can fire. When it fires it will produce this blue muzzle flash with visible sparks coming out along the barrel.

After this, the receiver opens up and the old case is ejected, here the new case can be seen in the soldiers hand.
