With Battlefield 5 getting a patch this past week, it seems the studio not only brought in game fixes to the game, but also some prep work for what’s coming down the line as well. A couple of Battlefield 5 upcoming weapons, and something called “Community Missions” have been unearthed via the game files.
Leaked by reliable Battlefield 5 dataminer temporyal, check out the some of the Battlefield 5 upcoming weapons and other info below.
Battlefield 5 upcoming weapons:
M3 SMG (“Grease Gun”)
“The M3 is an American .45-caliber submachine gun adopted for U.S. Army service on 12 December 1942. The M3 was chambered for the same .45 ACP round fired by the Thompson submachine gun, but was cheaper to produce and lighter, although, contrary to popular belief, it was less accurate. This myth stems from a US Army training film portraying the M3 as more accurate than its counterparts. The M3 was commonly referred to as the “Grease Gun” or simply “the Greaser”, owing to its visual similarity to the mechanic’s tool.”(Wikipedia)
Type 100 SMG
“The Type 100 was a Japanese submachine gun used during World War II, and the only submachine gun produced by Japan in any quantity. It was made in two basic variants referred to by American and British observers as the Type 100/40 and the Type 100/44, the latter also known as the Type 100 (Simplified). A small number of the earlier version were converted into using folding stock, sometimes referred to by the Allies as the Type 100 Navy, which was made for parachutists.” (Wikipedia)
Disclaimer: The title (“Type 99”) doesn’t really give away if we’re talking about the LMG or Bolt-Action Rifle so expect (at least) one of them to arrive with the Pacific theatre.
The Type 99 light machine gun was a light machine gun used by the Imperial Japanese Army in World War II.” (Wikipedia)
“The Type 99 rifle Arisaka or Type 99 short rifle was a bolt-action rifle of the Arisaka design used by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.” (Wikipedia)
Another thing that’s coming to Battlefield 5 is called the “Community Missions,” which is something that multiplayer first-person shooter will be familiar with. Usually, these things require the entire community to band together to complete a certain weekly/monthly rewards, and once it’s completed, a reward is given.
DICE seems to be working on an additional mission system, which will get the whole player base involved:
- The first “Community Mission” is called “Celebrate the Effort”.
- It requires us to earn a certain score in any game mode.
- You will be able to see your contribution in the menu.
- I don’t know anything about possible rewards.
Finally, it seems the Panzerbüchse 39 will not be the reward for Chapter 4 Week 7. It seems DICE has changed this and instead we’re getting the “Waterproof” weapon set for the M3) Drilling. The Panzerbüchse 39 will be available in late August according to the schedule for the next patch, though, so don’t fret.
Not a bad set of leaked info, no? Once we know more, we’ll make sure our readers know about it ASAP.
