Newly Released 'Battlefield 1' Video Hints The New Weapons That Fans Might See On 'In The Name Of The Tsar' DLC [VIDEO]By Emily Schultz, UniversityHerald Reporter
EA DICE has already announced previously that new weapons will be added to its first-person shooter game when the upcoming DLC expansion "In the Name of the Tsar" arrived on the market. Fortunately, a "Battlefield 1" fan has managed to create a video that contains a wish list of weapons that fans like to see in the upcoming DLC expansion.
Reports said that all of the six weapons that being discussed in the newly released Westie's video were used by the Russian army during the First World War. EA DICE is known for historical accuracy when it comes to weaponry. Fans could expect some new weapons in the future upgrades.
The first one is the five-shot, bolt-action Mosin-Nagant M91 (Dragoon). The Mosin-Nagant M91 is an internal magazine-fed rifle with a 30.5-inch barrel. This weapon is said to be the standard edition for the army in the game.
The second one is the seven-shot, gas-seal revolver Nagant M1895 Revolver. There's also the short recoil, automatic rifle, called the Fedorov Avtomat.
The fourth one is the Parabellum MG14 LMG, a 7.9 mm caliber machine gun primarily developed for aircraft. This weapon is capable of firing at around 700 rounds per minute. Another one is the iconic Remington Rolling Block rifle. This breech-loading rifle has long been popular with the Buffalo slaughterers. Finally, the Obrez Mosin, a sawed-off version of the Mosin-Naganbtr weapon.
"Battlefield 1" fans could find more about these wishlists on the upcoming EA Play in June, where the developer is expected to show off more about the Russian army, the new maps, weapons, and vehicles. The much-awaited EA Play 2017 event will start on June 10 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time or 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
As for the upcoming DLC expansion "In the Name of the Tsar," EA DICE will release the new DLC in late summer. Additionally, EA DICE is now working on the two other "Battlefield 1" expansions, namely the "Turning Tide and the "Apocalypse." However, the release schedule for these two expansions has not yet provided.
In other gaming-related news, EA DICE has complied a complete list of soldier and war vehicle movement changes that will be implemented first in the shooter game's Community Test Environment. Then, after that EA DICE will release a structured list of weapon and melee changes.
