Battlefield V
PC Boxart
Release Date: October 19, 2018
Developer: DICE
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Series: Battlefield
Platforms: PC
Playstation 4
Genre: First-Person Shooter

Battlefield V is an upcoming first-person shooter developed by Swedish game developer DICE and published by Electronic Arts. It is a main series entry in EA's large-scale FPS Battlefield series, and is the third entry to be set chiefly in World War 2 since Battlefield: 1943.

Note: current in-game images on this page are from the public beta.
The following weapons were used in the videogame Battlefield V:



Like in previous Battlefield games, players can select one from four classes (Assault, Medic, Support and Recon). The Assault class wields semi-automatic or select-fire rifles, the Medic class uses submachine guns like in Battlefield: 1942, the Support class uses machine guns and shotguns, and the Recon class uses sniper rifles. These four roles are also fleshed out with the introduction of "Combat Roles", allowing players to customize their skills of each class for fulfilling niche roles (e.g. the Support class can specialize into the "Engineer" role and help build fortifications on the map with ease, etc.)

In Battlefield V, weapon customization has been expanded on since Battlefield 1. The weapon variant system is removed, and general weapon customization returns to a form similar to Battlefield 4. Cosmetic parts such as stocks can also be modified, in addition to simple cosmetic modifications such as weapon finishes.


Colt M1911A1

An icon for the the Colt M1911A1 is seen in some promotional materials.

World War II Colt M1911A1 - .45 ACP. This was an issued U.S. Army pistol with parkerized finish, thus the official designation of M1911A1

FP-45 Liberator

The FP-45 Liberator is a confirmed sidearm.

FP-45 Liberator - .45 ACP

Luger P08

The Luger P08 is seen used by a German officer in the singleplayer teaser.

When crouched, the player character will adopt a two-handed grip on pistols in Battlefield V. This has actually been present in the third person animations in DICE's previous games since Star Wars Battlefront, though V is the first game to make this consistent between viewpoints.

Steyr M1912

The Steyr M1912 returns from Battlefield 1.

Steyr Hahn Model 1912 (1913 mfg) - 9x23mm Steyr

Walther P38

A Walther P38 pistol is an all-class weapon in the public Alpha.

Webley Mk VI

A Webley Mk VI can be seen in the hands of a character in the "The Company" trailer.

Webley Mk VI - .455 Webley

Submachine Guns

Erma EMP

An Erma EMP is a submachine gun available in BFV. In the alpha, it is an Assault class primary, while in the Beta, it is a Medic weapon.

A player character holds the EMP in a BFV trailer. The mounted sight appears to be based on the 1945-vintage Nydar Model 47 reflex sight, a device made by the Swain Nelson Company for hunting shotguns. This sight never saw any combat use, and was not particularly popular with civilian shooters due to being rather fragile.

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II

The Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II (an improved version of the Bergmann MP18 Submachine Gun) is seen in the "Road to Battlefield V" community event.

Haenel-Schmeisser MP28/II Submachine Gun - 9x19mm


The MP40 is seen in the trailer used by German soldiers, and will be featured in the multiplayer as an available SMG for the Medic class.

M1928A1 Thompson

The M1928A1 Thompson is seen used by British soldiers in promotional images. An M1928A1 with a 50-round drum magazine is a starting weapon for the "Under No Flag" War Story.

Sten Mk. II

The Sten Mk II is seen in the reveal trailer. In the open beta, it is used by the Medic class. It makes a distinct metallic sound when firing owing to its sheet-metal construction.

The skeletal pistol grip made for the Sten is available as customization for various weapons as the "Sten commando grip".

Sten Mk II - 9x19mm
When equipping the Sten, the player character sends the bolt out of its safety position. The MP40 has a similar animation.

Suomi KP/-31

The Suomi KP/-31 appears in the open beta for the Medic class with a 20 round stick magazine and can be upgraded with a 50 quad-stack "coffin" magazine.

Browning Auto-5

The Browning Auto-5 returns from Battlefield 1. This time its available for the support class.

M30 Luftwaffe Drilling

The M30 Luftwaffe Drilling is seen in the Gamescom trailer. In the public beta, it is a support class primary weapon. Like in Call of Duty: WWII, the drilling's rifle barrel can be used as an ersatz sniper rifle.

Sjögren - 12 gauge


In Battlefield V, stripper clip-loaded weapons are realistically affected by the use of scopes; equipping a scope will block the magazine and prevent the use of stripper clips for reloading (an issue that Battlefield 1 side-stepped by side-mounting all scopes). The sole exception is the Steyr Mannlicher M1895/30, as its en-bloc clip function required the scope be mounted forward of the ejection port to not obstruct clip feeding/ejection.

De Lisle Carbine

The De Lisle Carbine appears in the game as the "Commando Rifle".

De Lisle Carbine - .45 ACP

FG 42

The FG 42 is categorized as an LMG and used by the Support. The FG 42 muzzle is also used as a visual modification to the "muzzle" component of other weapons. The pressed steel dovetail "Schwalbenschwanz" mount which in reality was intended to mount a ZF4 scope to the 2nd pattern FG 42 is used to mount the MKIII reflector sight to various weapons.

FG 42 second model - 7.92x57mm Mauser
A Support player holds the FG 42 in the Devastation of Rotterdam trailer. The optical attachment on the FG 42 is based on the Mark III Free Mounted Gun Reflector Sight, in reality these were aircraft sights and one being used in handheld weapon configuration is highly improbable as they need external power supply. Note the pressed steel dovetail mount.

Gewehr 43

A Gewehr 43 is a self-loading rifle available in the game. In the Alpha, the weapon is equipped with a telescopic sight and is used by the Medic class. In the open beta, it is used by the Assault class. By default, the rifle is reloaded with stripper clips and loose rounds (like its predecessor), but can be upgraded to reload via separate magazines.

Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr

Two versions of the Volkssturmgewehr are featured as Assault primaries. The first is the rare, experimental select-fire version, featured as the "Sturmgewehr 1-5". The second is the much more common semi-auto only version, featured as the "Gewehr 1-5".

Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr - 7.92x33mm Kurz

Karabiner 98k

The Karabiner 98k is a Scout weapon found in BFV. Its scope options include iron sights, ZF4 scope (Medium Scope), ZF42 scope (Long Scope), and an Apeture sight. The ZF4 scope is mounted with a late war Swept-Back style sniper mount similar to the Kar98k rifles made by J. P. Sauer and Sohns at the very end of WWII, which saw very limited use before the war ended.

Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk.I

The Lee-Enfield No.4 Mk 1* is a usable weapon in the beta. Note that the No.4 is technically anachronistic for the base game's setting in the Fall of Europe; the BEF was still using WWI-era SMLE Mk.III rifles during this time and the No.4 was not adopted until 1941.

The Krag-Jørgensen rifle is a confirmed weapon.

M1A1 Carbine

The M1A1 Carbine is a confirmed weapon. The M1A1 is available for the assault class in the open beta. Thirty-round magazines can be unlocked for the Carbine as an upgrade tree option.

Some of the soldiers on the game's various cover arts wield M1 Carbines with solid stocks. As of yet, it is unknown if the M1 Carbine would be a separate weapon, a cosmetic variation of the M1A1 Carbine, or as a cover art-only weapon.

Steyr M1895 (M1930 Conversion) - 8x56mmR Mannlicher

Sturmgewehr 44

A Sturmgewehr 44 is available for the Assault class. In the beta, one of the scope options rather oddly gives it the barrel assembly of the MKb 42(H), though the weapon retains its base stats otherwise and retains closed-bolt function.

Turner SMLE Conversion

The prototype semi-auto conversion for the SMLE by Russell J. Turner appears in the open beta as an Assault class weapon. By default, it reloads via charger clips and individual rounds, but it can be upgraded to allow the use of extra magazines or twenty round magazines from the Howell Automatic Rifle.

Prototype Turner-conversion SMLE - .303 British


The ZH-29 is found in the public beta as a Recon class primary. It has a 5-round capacity and as with the other semi-automatic rifles, it reloads with stripper clips and loose ammo by default but can be upgraded with an extended 10-round magazine or with additional magazines.

ZH-29 with 5-round magazine - 7.92×57mm Mauser

Machine Guns

Machine Guns in Battlefield V use some interesting categories. Light Machine Guns are a separate category from Medium Machine Guns. The two categories don't necessarily reflect the real-life weapon categories, but instead reflect gameplay features: LMGs do not overheat and have smaller capacities, and can aim down sights like other weapons. MMGs have much larger capacities, can overheat, and cannot aim down sights while being carried by hand, requiring use of bipods to aim down sights.

The overheating animation is depicted more realistically, where instead of the Support soldier giving the charging handle a quick rack to "clear the heat", they will instead replace the quick-change barrel.

In the release version of the game, KE7, Bren Gun, FG42, and Lewis Gun are placed in the LMG category. The MG 34 and the MG 42 are in the MMG category.

Bren Mk 1

The Bren Gun is a Support weapon. The Bren muzzle is also used as a visual modification of the "muzzle" component of other weapons.

Lewis Gun

The Lewis Gun is confirmed to return from Battlefield 1 with the "Road to Battlefield V" community event, which featured an unlockable weapon skin for the Lewis Gun in BF5.

Lewis Gun - .303 British


The MG34 is found in the Alpha.

The MG42 is used in the reveal trailer. A special post-1943 muzzle brake for the MG42, shown in the book Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 57, April 1945, is available as a visual modification of the "muzzle" component of the MG42 and other weapons.

The SIG KE7 light machine gun is used by the Support class. Seeing as the KE7 fires from an open bolt and also locks open when empty, the KE7's tactical and empty reloads are entirely identical, as there is never any need to touch the charging handle.

The Leuchtpistole can used by the scout class.

Enfield Grenade launcher

The Enfield cup-type rifle grenade launcher mounted on a modified shortened SMLE model from the previous game (with the stock also sawn-off and wire wrapping around the gun like in this example) is a dedicated gadget called "Grenade Rifle". It can be seen in the Gamescom trailer, and it is an Assault and Medic gadget in the public beta. The weapon functions differently from its previous gadget form in Battlefield 1 and more like the Blanch-Chevallier Grenade Discharger from the Turning Tides expansion, with the reload process involving the player character inserting a grenade and a blank into their weapon.

Vickers Mk 1

The Vickers Machine Gun is a buildable stationary heavy MG for the Allies. It uses the same base model/animations as its Battlefield 1 version, however, its "visual recoil" (sight misalignment while firing) has been drastically reduced to the point of effectively being gone, as with all other guns in BFV. Additionally, as of the open Beta, the name has been changed from simply "HMG" to "Vickers". The bulbous post-1940 Mark II blast deflector for the Vickers is available as a visual modification of the "muzzle" component of various weapons.

Vickers Mk1 Machine Gun - .303 British - .303 British

The Sten Mk V barrel shroud and front sights are featured as the "Peacekeeper" visual modification of the Sten's "barrel" component.

Sten Mk V - 9x19mm without vertical grip.

Sten Mk I - 9x19mm

M3 Grease Gun

An M3 Grease Gun muzzle flash hider is available as a visual modification of the "muzzle" component of various weapons.
