Nice, but where's the trigger?

Battlefield Hardline is a spin-off entry in the Battlefield first-person shooter series (released between Battlefield 4 and Battlefield 1), developed by Visceral Games instead of DICE. Instead of pitting armies against each other, the game focuses on the "war" between criminals and police.
As in previous games, player take on as one of four classes:
- Operator is akin to the Assault/Medic class, wielding assault rifles and carbines, able to revive and heal other players, and for the first time in the series, revive him/herself under certain conditions.
- Enforcer is a powerhouse class (a pseudo analogue to the Support), wielding high-caliber battle rifles, heavy carbines, and shotguns, as well as dropping ammo for allies. A riot shield and C4 explosive is also unlocked by this class.
- Mechanic class is the stand-in for the Engineer, using sub-machine guns and revolvers. Due to a lesser emphasis on vehicles, the Mechanic now gets more unique equipment like torso armor or the deployable spawn point, though still retains a 40mm grenade launcher and repair tool
- Professional class is the Recon/Sniper of this game, unlocking both bolt action and high caliber semi-automatic weapons. Gadgets available to this class include the trip mine and a surveillance camera.
All of the classes are capable of equipping a zip-line crossbow, grappling hook launcher, gas mask, or a driving upgrade in place of either or both of their unique gadgets.
Rocket launchers and light machine guns are not available to any class, but can be found as Battle Pickup at fixed locations on the maps, or stored in the trunk of a car if the proper upgrade has been purchased for it.
As in many prior Battlefield games, most weapons are exclusive to one side when purchased, such as the Saiga .308 being only usable by the criminals, or the SCAR-H only being usable by the police. However, obtaining 1250 kills with a specific weapon allows players to purchase a Weapon License, letting them use it regardless of their team.
The following weapons appear in the video game Battlefield Hardline:
Unlike previous games in the series, pistols are now class-specific, sorted in different categories. The Operator kit uses the lower-caliber semi-automatics, such as the 92FS and Glock 17. The Mechanic uses revolvers, including the Judge. The Enforcer kit uses heavier pistols such as the M1911 and Desert Eagle, and the Professional uses machine pistols such as the Glock 18 and MAC-10.
The Beretta 92FS makes an appearance as the "92FS", and is the starting weapon of the Operator for both factions, and by default comes with improved ironsights. In single-player it is also a default weapon for Nick Mendoza.
Beretta 92FS "93R"
The Beretta 92FS "93R" was originally one of the "hidden guns", it's the same "93R" from Battlefield 3 which, of course, is a normal 92FS made to resemble the 93R. Unlike Battlefield 4's model, it has the extended magazine and ported barrel as it had in Battlefield 3. It is the only burst-fire machine pistol and is exclusive to Law Enforcement Professional Class.
CZ 75 SP-01 SHADOW
The CZ-75 SP-01 SHADOW appears simply as the 'CZ-75' and can be purchased for the Criminal Operator. It has a larger magazine than the 92FS and P226, and is quite accurate. Unlike Battlefield 4's version, it appears to be a 9x19mm model rather than .40 S&W.
Originally cut from release, the FN Five-seveN appears as the "FN57" in an update released alongside the Robbery DLC. It is an all-class sidearm, and it holds 20+1 rounds.
The Glock 17 makes a return from Battlefield 3 with a new model as the "G17", unlocked for both teams by completing the Operator Assignment 2. It has the highest magazine capacity in its class, just ahead of the CZ-75, and has a much higher firecap than the other semi-automatic handguns. A variant outfitted as a racegun is available in the Getaway DLC as the "G17 Race"; this one is an all-kit weapon and fitted with a red dot sight and a compensator.
The Glock 18 appears as the default sidearm for the Professional class; it is incorrectly named the 'G18C', which refers to the version with compensator cuts on the slide and barrel. Its model is ported from Battlefield 4’s Glock 18, which had the same slide serrations as a semi-automatic model rather than the unique ones for the 18's fire selector. It comes with a Laser Sight by default. Incidentally, it shares its Battlelog render with the Glock 17.
Heckler & Koch HK45C
Heckler & Koch HK45C with threaded barrel is the default sidearm of the Enforcer kit on both teams. During the June 2014 beta, it was called "HK45C", but was renamed to "45T" by the February 2015 beta. By default it comes with a Mini Reflex sight. It is also used by several characters throughout the story.
IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX
The IMI Desert Eagle Mark XIX appears once again from Battlefield 4 although this time it is called the "Bald Eagle". Unlike in Battlefield 4, this Desert Eagle has a chrome finish as opposed to blued and is now chambered in .50 Action Express instead of .44 Magnum. It can be unlocked for both teams' Enforcer class by completing the Enforcer Assignment 2. A gold-plated version is also used by the VIP in the Crosshair game mode.
The SIG-Sauer P226R in .40 S&W appears as the 'P226' and is available for purchase by Law Enforcement Operators. It has a lower magazine size than any of the Operator's other sidearms.
Smith & Wesson M&P40 Pro
The Smith & Wesson M&P40 Pro appears as the '.40 Pro', and is a pistol for the Enforcer class. It can be differentiated from the standard M&P40 by the 5 inch barrel. By default, it is only available to the Criminals' Enforcer; this is rather odd, considering the weapon's name (Military & Police). It has slightly less power than the other Enforcer handguns, but compensates for this with a higher magazine capacity, acting a bit more like one of the Operator's sidearms.
Smith & Wesson Model 327 R8
The Smith & Wesson Model 327 R8 makes its video game debut in this entry of the Battlefield series, where it can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Mechanic class. It has a higher capacity than any of the other revolvers, holding 8 rounds in the cylinder. It appears under the name ".357 RS".
Smith & Wesson Model 642
The Smith & Wesson Model 642 revolver is the default sidearm for the Mechanic on both teams; called the ".38 Snub". It initially had an incorrect 6-round capacity during the June 2014 beta. This has since been rectified to 5 rounds as of the February 2015 beta. It has a laser sight equipped by default, which is the only attachment it can use.
Taurus Model 44
The Taurus Model 44 returns from both prior Battlefield games, again named the '.44 Magnum.' It can be purchased for the Criminal Mechanic.
Vickers Tactical Custom 1911
The Vickers Tactical 1911 comes back from Battlefield 4, somewhat incorrectly called "M1911A1". It can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Enforcer class. Although it is the same model reused from Battlefield 4, tritium inserts have been added and the slight misalignment of the sights has been fixed.
The Beretta M12S is available in the Getaway DLC for the Law Enforcement Mechanic. As with the Carl Gustav M/45, the bolt is pulled back at the start of an empty reload.
Beretta Mx4 Storm
The Beretta Mx4 Storm is available in the Betrayal DLC.
Brügger & Thomet MP9
The Brügger & Thomet MP9 is available in the Betrayal DLC as a sidearm for Law Enforcement snipers.
Carl Gustav M/45
The Carl Gustav M/45 appears simply as the 'M/45' and can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Mechanic. It is correctly depicted as being open-bolt and lacking a fire selector, unable to chamber an extra round and limited to automatic fire. In prior betas it was a Criminal-exclusive weapon, though for balance reasons was shifted to the Law Enforcement team. It holds 36 rounds with no extra in the chamber and unlike other open-bolt weapons in the game, the bolt is pulled back at the start of an empty reload rather than the end.
CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1
The CZ Scorpion Evo 3 A1 appears as the "Scorpion" in the Robbery DLC. Despite the underbarrel rail, it cannot mount a foregrip, a trait shared with SIG MPX in-game.
FN P90 TR
The FN P90 TR is available for purchase for the Criminal Mechanic class as the "P90". Earlier beta versions had 40 round capacity, later corrected to 50. The game also shows the magazine to be incorrectly removed without pressing the magazine release button. By default it starts with a heavy barrel attachment which makes it appear similar to the civilian variant, the FN PS90.
Heckler & Koch MP5A4
The Heckler & Koch MP5A4 is available in the Getaway DLC for the Law Enforcement Mechanic. It appears as "M5 Navy", and by default is shown with a 15-round magazine that holds 30 rounds.
Heckler & Koch MP5KA4
The Heckler & Koch MP5KA4 is an available sub-machine gun for the Mechanic class of both teams. This is the starting weapon for the Mechanic in the February 2015 beta, and is equipped with a red dot sight, suppressor and extended magazine, which for some reason holds only 25 rounds. The weapon always has the buttcap of the MP5K-PDW, and the folding stock is optional. Attaching a muzzle device will turn it into an actual MP5K-PDW.
Heckler & Koch MP5SD5
The Heckler & Koch MP5SD5 is available in the Getaway DLC. Appears as "M5SD", and like the "M5 Navy", it is also shown with a 15-round magazine that holds 30 rounds. It's the third submachine gun that is available to all classes, the first two being M1A1 Thompson and MP7A1.
Heckler & Koch MP7A1
The MP7A1 appears as the "MP7" in the Robbery DLC. It comes with a default 40-round magazine, and is another weapon that can be used by all classes of both Law Enforcement and Criminals.
Heckler & Koch UMP9
The Heckler & Koch UMP9 is available in the Getaway DLC for both factions' Mechanic. For some reason it shares Battlelog render with UMP45, but the ingame model correctly has the curved magazine. Like the UMP45, the charging handle incorrectly locks back when the last round is fired.
Heckler & Koch UMP45
The Heckler & Koch UMP45, as the "UMP-45", was the starting weapon for the Mechanic class in June 2014 beta. The front sight assembly is removed when equipped with optics like in Battlefield 4. In real life, this would not be possible without permanently altering the weapon. During the Feburary 2015 beta, it was available to purchase for the Law Enforcement Mechanic. After the beta, the UMP45 was swapped to the Criminal team for balancing reasons, with Law Enforcement getting the M/45 in exchange.
Homemade submachine gun
A homemade submachine gun, based on a weapon seized by Brazilian police, is available to the Criminals in the Betrayal DLC as the "Improvised Gun". Its only attachment is a similarly-improvised oil filter can suppressor, unlocked at 70 kills.
The IMI Uzi can be purchased for the Criminal Mechanic class. In the June Beta, it incorrectly chambered a round for 30+1 rounds, but later it was corrected to 32+0. It has a unique bolt handle that extends to the left.
The Ingram MAC-10 equipped with rails is an available machine pistol sidearm for the Professional class. The MAC-10 in game has a Masterpiece Arms upper receiver, which adds a full-length top rail and relocates the bolt handle to the left side. It can be unlocked by completing Professional Assignment 2, and can be used by both teams. By default it starts with a Suppressor and a Stock option and a small magazine size of only 15 rounds, and is portrayed as being able track +1 round in the chamber despite being an open bolt weapon (although the MPA pistol clones are closed bolt for legal reasons; the in-game gun could be some sort of select-fire, closed bolt conversion).
A full-auto converted Intratec TEC-9 is available for purchase for the Criminal Professional class. It chambers +1 round, which is correct as the TEC-9 is a closed-bolt gun. (Only the original KG-9 is open-bolt) The magazine is shown to be incorrectly holding 20 rounds in a 32 rounds magazine, but this is corrected to 32 with use of the "Extended Magazines" option.
The KRISS K10 appears as the 'K10' and can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Mechanic, with an astounding RPM of 1200. To balance out its firing rate, its accuracy is quite low. It also has a slightly below-average magazine size of 25+1 in multiplayer, and 27+1 in singleplayer. Its use in the game is incorrect, since the K10 never made it past SHOT Show 2013, and seems to have been cancelled.
An M1A1 Thompson is introduced in patch 1.04 that was released alongside the Criminal Activity expansion, although the expansion is not required to own the weapon, which appears simply as M1A1. It was the first of a few primary weapons that can be used by all classes. It is equipped with a 30-round magazine by default, and the extended magazine incorrectly gives it the 50-round drum, despite the real M1/M1A1 Thompson not accepting the 50 round drum magazines used on the M1921/M1928A1. It can also equip a classic wooden vertical foregrip as a "stubby grip", but no barrel attachments or different sights. Unlike other weapons, it cannot use camouflages, instead only able to use the Bronze, Silver, or Gold finishes.
Interestingly, no bolt operation is seen when the weapon is reloaded while empty. This makes sense, since the Thompson is an open-bolt weapon, and thus wouldn't need to be cocked if the user lets their finger off of the trigger immediately after sending the bolt forward for the last shot. Nevertheless, this exception is only seen on this weapon among the open bolt weapons of Hardline, and is a rare sight in video games.
The Magpul FMG-9 can be unlocked for both teams' Mechanic class by completing the Mechanic Syndicate assignment. By default, it is equipped with a red dot and laser sight. Its availability in the game is odd, considering that the real weapon never went into full production.
Sa. Vz. 61 Skorpion
Dual-wielded Sa. Vz. 61 Skorpions are available in the Betrayal DLC, and are the only fully-automatic sidearms that are available to all classes. The ammo count apparently treats the pair of Skorpions as a single weapon, as it oddly has a capacity of 31+1 rounds instead of 30+2 like it is supposed to, aside from the fact that it should actually be 40+2 since there is no 15-round magazine for the Vz. 61 Skorpion in reality. The rate of fire is also a bit low - a real VZ.61 fires at around 800-900 RPM, meaning that a pair of Skorpions should have around 1,600-1,800 RPM, but the in-game fire rate is 1300 RPM.
The SIG-Sauer MPX returns from Battlefield 4, this time modeled after the actual prototype displayed at SHOT Show 2013. It is a purchasable weapon for the Law Enforcement Mechanic, and is chambered in .40 S&W. It holds 30 rounds in the magazine. Unlike Battlefield 4, its stock is now collapsed by default but can be extended with the Stock accessory, reducing recoil. It also cannot mount foregrips, despite being able to do so in BF4. It is anachronistic to the first part of the single-player story set in 2012, since the MPX was announced in 2013 and produced in 2014.
Steyr AUG A3 9mm XS
The Steyr AUG A3 9mm XS is available in the Getaway DLC for the Criminal Mechanic. It is referred to as the AUG Para, and is available to Criminal mechanics.
The SPAS-12 returns from previous Battlefield games for the Criminal Enforcer class, but this time around appears to be set to semi-automatic rather than pump-action. However, it behaves rather strangely, to say the least, as the pumping animation still plays when firing the shotgun while aiming down the sights, regardless of how fast the player is firing. The reload animation also seems to infer that it the shotgun is still set to pump-action as it is chamber-loaded using the pump, rather than the charging handle required when it is set to semi-auto. It has an 8+1 capacity, as it did in Battlefield 4.
Ithaca 37 "Stakeout"
The Ithaca 37 in a "Stakeout" configuration is an available shotgun for the Police Enforcer class, known as the "37 Stakeout" in game. It has the length and wooden forearm of the standard "Stakeout", but has the heat shield and unique foregrip of the Miami Vice movie gun seen below. The foregrip is somehow installed over the forearm. An identical configuration was seen in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It can be bought for the Law Enforcement Enforcer, and can be unlocked early on in the single-player story. It incorrectly holds 5+1 shells instead of 4+1 and has a tighter spread than the 870.
The Kel-Tec KSG is available in the Criminal Activity DLC, appearing as the "KSG12". It is exclusive to the Enforcer class on the Law Enforcement team and can be bought fairly cheap, requiring no assignment to complete unlike previous Battlefield games' DLC weapons. Like usual in video games featuring the KSG, the two magazine tubes are incorrectly treated as one continuous tube, as the magazine selector is never operated. The weapon incorrectly has a capacity of 13+1 shells instead of 14+1.
Remington 870 Marine Magnum
The Remington 870 Marine Magnum is the default weapon for the Enforcer class as the "870P Magnum", taking the MG36's place during the June 2014 beta as this class' default weapon, as the MG36, along with all other LMGs, are now Battle Pickups as of the February 2015 beta. It has a rail attached to the top of the receiver and rifle sights on the barrel. It holds 7+1 shells in singleplayer, and 6+1 in multiplayer. By default it is equipped with a Tactical Light, which differs from a regular flashlight in that it only activates when aiming
The Saiga-12K appears as the "Saiga 12" in the Robbery DLC.
Side by Side Shotgun
The Sawed-Off Side by Side Shotgun is unlocked by the Enforcer class as the "Double-Barrel Shotgun". It is unlocked by completing the Enforcer Syndicate assignment. When reloading, even if only one shot is fired, both shells are replaced. Buying the "Long Barrel" and "Stock" attachments for the sawed-off shotgun will turn it into a full-length 12 gauge Side-by-Side Shotgun. An interesting feature of the shotgun is that the fire selector function allows the player to choose whether to fire both barrels at the same time or not. The full length shotgun can be found as a battle pickup of sorts on some multiplayer levels.
Winchester Model 1887
The Winchester Model 1887 is available in the Getaway DLC. Buying the "Short Barrel" and "Sawed Off Stock" will turn it into the sawed-off variant. It's the only shotgun that is available to all classes.
Assault Rifles & Carbines
The AKM is available to the Criminal Operator class; it is however erroneously modeled with a straighter 5.45x39mm magazine similar to that of the Romanian WASR-2. In addition, it is depicted with a ported gas tube like the older AK-47. In earlier betas it had a railed handguard, but this was later changed to the original wood furniture (equipping anything in the Accessory slot will return the RIS handguard). It has higher damage and better range than other Operator weapons, but is hard to control and fires slower than the rest.
The AKS-74U is an available carbine for the Criminal team's Operator class. It uses an aftermarket railed handguard and is equipped with a laser sight by default.
Colt Model 933
The Colt Model 933 is featured as the "RO933" and is the starting carbine for the Operator class. By default it is equipped with a stubby grip, a flash hider, and an Aimpoint T1 Micro sight. A variant chambered in .300 Blackout with an integral suppressor is available in the Blackout DLC as an all-kit weapon, referred to as "RO933 .300 BLK".
Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle
The Desert Tech Micro Dynamic Rifle appears as the "MDC" (despite being modeled as Full sized MDR) in the Robbery DLC. It is coded to use 7.62x39mm ammunition.
The L85A2 is available to the Operator class, a rather odd choice given that only a very small number of semi-automatic SA80s have been imported into the United States and probably no L85A2s will ever end up in the hands of cops or criminals. It was only available for pre-ordering the game or buying the Deluxe Edition Upgrade, but as of the Robbery DLC is free to all players. Equipped with an ACOG scope by default, it has a fire rate of 675 RPM in-game. Player characters in-game reload the weapon rather slowly in comparison to other weapons with an empty reload taking 4.2 seconds.
The FAMAS Valorisé appears as the "FAMAS" in the Robbery DLC. It is a bit slower than prior Battlefield games at 900 RPM, and keeps its 25+1 capacity from prior games as well. It is available to both teams' Operator class. As with the L85A2 mentioned above, it is another odd choice as only a few (about 200) "MAS .223" semi-automatic civilian rifles were ever imported into the United States prior the 1989 ban on the importation of foreign semi-automatic rifles, and these rifles were essentially FAMAS F1s with "bugle" carry handle as they predated the FÉLIN program. The variant in-game has the incorrect G1/G2 style trigger guard rather than the F1 type, and it also incorrectly has a ribbed F1 style barrel.
FN F2000 Tactical
The FN F2000 Tactical, equipped with the railed handguard of the FS2000 CQB, appears as the "F2000" in the Robbery DLC, exclusive to the Criminal Operator. Unlike in Battlefield 4, the original F2000's scope is used as the default ironsights instead of the F2000 Tactical's backup irons. Also unlike BF4, where the weapon turns back into the original F2000 when the original F2000 scope is used, the scope in Hardline is apparently mounted onto the F2000 Tactical's raised rails, with a piece of the raised rails visibly protruding from the front; this is impossible in reality, and the protruding rail would be occupied by the front sling loop on the real F2000.
Heckler & Koch G36C
Heckler & Koch G36C is available to purchase for the Law Enforcement Operator class. Like in Battlefield 4, during the beta it has an incorrect rate of fire of 650 rounds per minute instead of 750. but was corrected in the full game to its proper 750 RPM. In betas, it was exclusive to the Criminal team, but was swapped after the February beta for balancing reasons.
Heckler & Koch G36 ("MG36")
The Heckler & Koch G36 with the G36C carrying handle, bipod, and 100-round Beta C-Mags appears as the "MG36"; the actual MG36 is a rare G36 variant with export G36 sights, and ceased development before the standardization of Picatinny rails.
It was the default Enforcer weapon during the June 2014 beta, but became a Battle Pickup from the February 2015 beta onwards (into the release version), along with the other LMGs. It always spawns with a CompM4S sight, Muzzle Brake, and Laser Sight and can be equipped from the trunk of a player's car with the LMG Armory vehicle upgrade.
The G36C carry handle lacks its integral iron sights; during the Beta, when using the gun with iron sights, the gun uses rail-mouted aftermarket backup iron sights instead. The gun is also depicted with an incorrect non-reciprocating bolt.
Heckler & Koch HK416
The Heckler & Koch HK416 with 14.5 inch barrel is available to the Criminal Operator class as the "M416". With the heavy barrel attachment, it becomes a long length 19.9 inch barrel. In betas, it was exclusive to the Law Enforcement team, though after the Februrary beta was changed to the Criminal team for balancing. It is tied with the RO933 for the highest rate of fire in its weapon class.
IMI Galil AR
The Galil AR is available to the Operator class; it is referred to as the ARM variant, despite not having a carrying handle nor a folding bipod. It holds an extremely high capacity of 50 rounds and can be unlocked by completing the Operator Syndicate assignment.
IWI Galil ACE 22
The Galil ACE 22 is available to the Operator class as the "CAR-556". It was only available for pre-ordering the game or buying the Deluxe Edition Upgrade, but as of the Robbery DLC it is free for all players. It possesses the second largest magazine capacity of the Operator Weapons (with the ARM being first) holding 40 rounds.
The pre-alpha version of the "CAR-556" was modeled after the shorter barreled Galil ACE 21; the menu icon still displays an ACE 21.
The M1A1 Carbine appears in the Robbery DLC, incorrectly called "M1" only (likely to avoid confusion with M1A1 Thompson). It uses 30-round magazines and has the stock folded by default. It can be unfolded by using the "Stock" attachment. Like the M1A1 Thompson, the M1A1 Carbine is one of the few primary weapon that can be used by all classes. Also similarly to the M1A1 Thompson, it has very limited attachments available, as it can only use stock, stubby grip, and flash hider options.
The M16A3 appears in the game. It can be purchased by the Law Enforcement Operator, though in early betas it was the kit's default weapon.
Mk 12 Mod 1 SPR
The Mk 12 Special Purpose Rifle is available in the Getaway DLC. In early stages it was more appropriately called "M12 Mod 1", but in the retail release it has been incorrectly renamed to "RO933 M1". The rifle's default flash hider appears to count as a muzzle brake; the only other barrel attachment for the Mark 12 is a sound suppressor.
The Remington ACR is available to the Operator class as the "ACW-R". It is featured in-game as a Carbine. It was only available for pre-ordering the game or purchasing the Deluxe Edition Upgrade. As of the Robbery DLC, it is free to all players.
SAR 21 MMS
The SAR 21 MMS is available in the Getaway DLC. As with the FAMAS and L85A2 mentioned above, SAR-21s are pretty uncommon rifles within the United States, as most rifles are civilian semi-automatics of the original model that lacks the rail system.
SIG SG 553
Returning from 3 and 4, the SIG SG 553 is available to the Law Enforcement Operator class. It is equipped with an SRS Red Dot by default.
Steyr AUG A3
The Steyr AUG A3 is available in the Betrayal DLC.
DSA SA58 OSW
The DSA SA58 OSW can be purchased for the Criminal Enforcer and appears as the "SA-58 OSW". It holds 20+1 rounds and comes with a PK-A 3.5x scope by default.
FN FAL is available in Criminal Activity DLC for the Criminal Enforcer class. With the stock attachment, it becomes a synthetic furniture model. It is nearly identical to its more modern counterpart except for a faster rate of fire. It can also use the "Extended Magazine" option, unlike the SA58, which gives it a long 30-round straight magazine, although it only holds 25 rounds.
The Third Generation FN SCAR-H CQC, listed in-game as the "SCAR-H", is an unlockable heavy carbine for the Law Enforcement Enforcer. With the heavy barrel attachment, it becomes a mid length SCAR-H STD. The game also incorrectly shows the magazine release button being pressed instead of the bolt release.
The HK51 is available for the Criminal Enforcer class. It has a slow rate of fire and its collapsible stock can be extended after the weapon's purchase.
Knight's Armament M110K5
The integrally suppressed M110K5 is available in the Blackout DLC as an all-class selective fire battle rifle.
M14 (Sage EBR chassis)
An M14 fitted in a Sage EBR chassis is available in the Getaway DLC. In early stages it was appropriately called an "M14 Sage", but in the retail release it has been incorrectly renamed to the "M39 EMR", like it was in the two previous games. It is depicted with a full-auto setting in-game, which is possible for an M14, but not for the M39 EMR in reality.
Ohio Ordnance HCAR
The Ohio Ordnance HCAR is available for the Law Enforcement Enforcer class. It incorrectly has a full-auto option; the real one is semi-auto only. Much like its counterpart on the Criminal team, the HK51, it has a slow rate of fire but high power. In single-player it has a capacity of 20 rounds, compared to the more common 30-round magazine used in multiplayer. It is anachronistic to the first part of the single-player story set in 2012, as the HCAR was announced in 2013.
The PTR 91 is available as a marksman rifle to the Criminal Professional class.
The Saiga 308 as the "SAIGA .308" can be purchased for the Criminal Professional class. In the beta, no iron sight was available to this gun. Due to either modeling or point of perspective, when viewed from the first person, the scope seems ridiculously large. In the full game, correct iron sights have been added, replicating the AKM ironsights.
SIG SG 510-4 / StG 57 Hybrid
The SIG SG 510 is available in the Criminal Activity DLC for the Law Enforcement Enforcer class. It's modeled after both the StG 57 and SG 510-4, as it has the overall black furniture and stock of the StG 57, but ironsights and charging handle are from SG 510-4, and it is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO. The default magazine manages to hold 24 rounds despite being rather small, while the "Extended Magazine" accessory gives it the longer mag of the StG 57 that holds 29+1 rounds.
Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16
The Springfield Armory M1A SOCOM 16, known simply as the "SOCOM 16", is a marksman rifle for the Law Enforcement Professional class. With the heavy barrel attachment, it becomes similar to a full length M1A.
As noted in the intro, man-portable machine guns are Battle Pickups in this entry of the series, and are no longer part of any class' kit.
FN M249 Para
The M249 is mounted on the Counter/Heavy Attack Truck, and is usable by the secondary gunner. It was available as a portable weapon for the Enforcer class during early betas, but was removed in the final release.
A customized Lewis Gun is available in the Betrayal DLC as the "Syndicate Gun". It has a truncated barrel, no stock, an AN/PEQ-15 laser, and a PK-A scope with a custom reticule. In the CTE pre-release tests, it was the same base Lewis gun used in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield 1. The final in-game model actually has the same ribbing on the forced-air cooling shroud as seen in the former game.
In the CTE pre-release, the "Syndicate Gun" was in its original length configuration with the rear sight folded down.
The RPK light machine gun was added to the game in two versions. The first appears in the Robbery DLC and has some elements of the Zastava M72. Like the Galil ARM, the RPK holds a high capacity of 50 rounds in a drum magazine (even though actual RPKs' drum magazines hold 75 rounds) and is now categorized as an Assault Rifle. Like the AKM, the RPK is fitted with its original wood handguard by default, but when equipping anything in the Accessory slot it becomes an RIS handguard. The second version was added in the Betrayal DLC and is an RPK modeled with a standard 40-round box magazine (that still holds 50 rounds), incorrectly referred to as a RPK-74 (similarly to Battlefield 3).
AAC Integrally Suppressed Remington 700
The AAC Integrally Suppressed Remington 700 appears as the ".300 Knockout". It can be unlocked for both teams by completing the Professional Syndicate assignment. It also comes with a straight-pull bolt by default. It has a default magazine capacity of 10+1 rounds in singleplayer, and 5+1 in multiplayer.
Accuracy International AWC
The Accuracy International Arctic Warfare Covert is available in the Getaway DLC. In-game it is inaccurately referred to as "AWS" (Arctic Warfare Suppressed), which refers to the non-folding stock variant. It was the only bolt-action sniper rifle that was available to all classes before the addition of the Springfield M1903.
Accuracy International AWM-F
The AWM-F can be purchased for the Criminal Professional. This time around, it is correctly designated "AWM". However, the weapon's projectile in the game files is erroneously stated to be 7.62x51mm NATO instead of .338 Lapua Magnum. Nevertheless, the weapon can be equipped with the ".338 Magnum Rounds" accessory, which essentially corrects this.
The Barrett M98B is available in the Betrayal DLC.
The Barrett M107 appears as the "M82 .416" in the Robbery DLC. It is actually modeled after the version chambered in .50 BMG; the real .416 Barrett variant has a cylindrical muzzle brake with three holes.
Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout
The Desert Tactical Arms Stealth Recon Scout is available in the Getaway DLC.
The FN FNAR is available in the Betrayal DLC as "SP-AR".
Knight's Armament SR-25 E2 Advanced Combat Carbine
The SR-25 E2 Advanced Combat Carbine appears in the game, incorrectly referred to as the SR-25 ECC (Enhanced Combat Carbine) variant. It can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Professional.
The M1903A1 Springfield with the rear sight of the M1903A3 is available in the Betrayal DLC. As with the other WWII weapons, it is available to all kits. Another strange attribute of this rifle is that the reload animation simply has a single .30-06 round loaded into the chamber, regardless of how many rounds have actually been fired. The empty reload animation also only "loads" 4 rounds, so the Springfield has to be topped off as if it was a closed-bolt weapon fed by detachable magazines.
Remington Model 700 LTR
The Remington Model 700 LTR, as "R700LTR", was the default weapon of the Professional class in the June 2014 beta. It is equipped with a fluted barrel. Currently it can be purchased for the Law Enforcement Professional. By default, it is chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO, but can optionally use ".338 Magnum Rounds" as an accessory, like the AWM.
The Steyr Elite appear as "Scout Elite", is the default weapon of the Professional class starting with the February 2015 beta. By default it is equipped with a straight-pull bolt accessory, removing the need to unscope between aimed shots. Unlike the heavier bolt-action rifles, it comes with only a 6x scope by default, rather than 8x.
Both the "Stinger" and the RPG-7 were available gadgets for the Mechanic class during the June 2014 beta, but these have since been relegated to Battle Pickups.
Training Set Guided Missile M134
The "FIM-92 Stinger" appears to be the same Training Set Guided Missile M134 model in Battlefield 3 and 4. It is available as a pick-up weapon only. Just how the police and a criminal syndicate can get a hold of this advanced military grade weapon is beyond anyone's guess, but it functions just like the previous games. The Anti-Air Armory upgrade for certain vehicles allows it to be claimed from their trunk.
Heckler & Koch M320
The Heckler & Koch M320 is available to the Law Enforcement Mechanic class. The description of the weapon reads "It's not exactly clear how Law Enforcement got a hold of this baby. A breach-loading launcher, it fires a 40mm high explosive grenade that is effective against light vehicles and agents." As in the previous two games, 40mm grenades are more useful for finishing weakened enemies off or taking down vehicles than for direct kills. The Police Operator class can use a unique version firing tear gas grenades.
M79 Grenade Launcher
The M79 is available for the Criminal Mechanic Class. Its description states that the weapon was (obviously) not obtained through legal channels. It functions identically to the M320. The Operator can use a unique version firing tear gas grenades.
Mk 153 Mod 0 SMAW
The RPG-7V2 can no longer be equipped by the Mechanic class, but can be picked up from various locations. The Anti-Armor Armory upgrade for certain vehicles allows it to be claimed from the vehicle's trunk.
AN/M14 incendiary grenade
Available to purchase for any Police class. Incendiaries grenades (and molotovs) thrown by teammates will have blue fire. two are carried at once. Criminals use Molotov cocktails instead.
M18 smoke grenade
Available for purchase for any class. As in Battlefield 4, smoke clouds can prevent spotting.
M67 fragmentation hand grenade
Every class in the game can equip one M67 fragmentation hand grenade. It is the default grenade.
M84 Stun Grenade
Available for purchase for any class. Players using the Flashbang carry two at a time.
Bofors 40mm L/60
In the "Sovereign Land" chapter of the single-player story, Nick makes use of the Bofors 40mm cannon mounted to a grounded AC130. The GAU-12/U and M102 Howitzer are also present but unusable.
The Browning M2HB appears on many vehicles. It is the main weapon for the Counter Attack Trucks. It is also the default door gunner weapon for the transport helicopters, and can be purchased for the SUVs to replace the default M134.
The FN M3M is purchasable for the SUV turret, and the helicopter door gunners, referred to as "M3M". It differs from the M2HB by having a higher rate of fire.
Mk 19 Grenade Launcher
M134 Miniguns are mounted on the Transport Helicopters, Armoured SUVs, and Attack Helicopter's nose mount.
The PKP Pecheneg is the default machine gun mounted on the Armored Rescue Vehicle/Hardened Attack Truck. It is the default gun used by the driver.
Airrow A-8S Stealth
The Airrow A-8S Stealth is available in the Betrayal DLC.
A triple-barreled rifle (a drilling) chambered in .700 Nitro Express is available in the Betrayal DLC as the "Mammoth Gun".
The Taser X26E appears as an all-kit gadget, in the sidearm slot. It is called the "T62 CEW" (for Conducted Energy Weapon, the official classification for Taser-like weapons) in the game. The in-game version can mount a reflex sight, something not possible with the real-life weapon, and indeed the in-game model shows no rails or other attachment points where one could be mounted. The reticle consists of a large white circle, and two green dots appear in the center if an enemy is within range. Enemies hit with the Taser will visibly spark for several seconds and collapse, and Taser takedowns will award a "Non-Lethal Takedown" score bonus, in addition to allowing players to interrogate the stunned enemy (which reveals the location of the victim's teammates on the minimap for a short time).
