If you’re a fan of World War 1 or World War 2 era shooters, chances are you’ve used the M1 Garand at some point or another. If you’re looking forward to using it in Battlefield 5 or just wondering why it’s not in the game, well, wonder no more!
Thanks to datamining the most recent Battlefield 5 patch, Reddit user temporyal has unearthed the Battlefield 5 M1 Garand game files! Unfortunately, the mention of the gun is all the info mined so far. No release window, which Challenge it’ll be tied with, or what Tides of War chapter it’ll be in, and so on. We do found out how it was uncovered, and it was under a file referring to the katana weapon which was unearthed in an earlier leak.
Give how highly anticipated this gun is (since it usually shreds in multiplayer shooters), it’s an exciting leak for Battlefield 5 fans. Granted, not everything leaked makes it into the game, but with how popular the weapon is, it’s just a question of when rather than if.

Are you excited to use the M1 Garand in Battlefield 5 or do you think DICE will make it underpowered?
