With Battlefield 5 getting a pretty hefty patch this past Tuesday, that means another round of datamined info is sure to surface, and it indeed has! A lot has been datamined by reliable miner temporyal with chief among them are the Battlefield 5 Halloween weapon set, game code for Private Games, and lots more.
Before anyone dives in, remember that these are all datamined info and are not guaranteed will make it into the game, alright?
Check out gameplay of the Madsen MG, Welrod and Barbed Baseball Bat below.
Operation Underground Weekly Challenges
The launch of Operation Underground seems to be accompanied by four additional weekly challenges including new weapons and a gadget as rewards.
These weeks could a standalone bundle without any chapter connection (and therefore no ranks and chapter rewards) or just an addition to Chapter 4.
Operation Underground Map Description:
“Within the narrow tunnels of the German underground railway, passenger and supply trains are halted when artillery fire ruptures the ground above causing both sides to navigate through the confined space to reach the other side.” (Ingame)
Reward: Jungle Carbine / Lee Enfield No. 5 (Bolt-Action Carbine / Medic)
“A shortened version of the ubiquitous Lee Enfield No. 4, this carbine was originally developed for use by paratroopers requiring a compact weapon. It was in wartime service for decades after World War II and variants of the design see civilian use to this day.” (Ingame)

“Halloween” Epic Weapon Set
I’ve included this weapon set because of the obvious timing (end of October) between Chapter 4 and 5. Currently the Halloween set can be applied to the Lewis Gun, STEN, StG44 and Lee Enfield No. 4.
Private Games (RSP)
Patch 4.4 included a few self explanatory strings for the hopefully upcoming Private Games (RSP) system.

Sandstorm on Hamada
New Playlist: Extreme Weather
The string “ID_M_MIX_EXTREMEWEATHER” could be a sign for a playlist containing map versions with extreme weather conditions.
Battle for Greece / Grand Operations
No updates so far but I’ve spotted a recent addition called “AirborneNew” to a game mode list. This could be a hint for a revised version of Grand Operations and therefore I guess we shouldn’t expect the “Battle for Greece” coming before a potential rework…
Will we see these stuff in the game? I gather, the Halloween set is a safe bet, and the Operation Underground challenges should be included as well.
