When you see an enemy with a shotgun charge your trench, or when your cover is torn apart by an LMG peeking out from behind a crumbling building, you'll realize just why World War I is called the Great War.

You'll be able to try them for yourself in a few months. In the meantime, if you want to know more, you should check out the Weapons & Gadgets page on Battlefield.com. It includes a short video showing off some of the weaponry, a Q&A with Twitch streamer/Battlefield GameChanger Darkness429 and myself (Julian Schimek, Weapons Designer on Battlefield™ 1), and a list of things you need to know about the weapons of Battlefield 1.
