Battlefield 4 Multiplayer Information: Classes And Weapons Detailed
Wider range of weapons for different classes and now “Battle Pickups” revealed.
New details for weapons and classes in DICE’s Battlefield 4, releasing in October for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, with a later release this year for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 have been revealed.
In the latest edition of the popular military shooter, players will now be able to use carbines and rifles, and allows them to choose either defensive or offensive roles. You can also mix up the variety of weapons between classes, rather than particular weapons being restrained to classes.
So the Engineer, for instance, can equip the M39 rifle for long distance firing, with marksman rifles previously restricted to Recons, or go on the offensive with the carbine, which was previously only for Engineers. Other examples include the C4 being shifted to Recon, while Support can now use the XM25 and M32 MGL heavy grenade launchers.
You’ll have enough freedom to customize your class, and along with different guns, all classes will be able to use different types of grenades. However, some dedicated weapons, like sniper rifles for Recon and machine guns for Support, will still remain (presumably for balancing purposes).
Players will also be able to use “Battle Pickup” weapons – powerful guns scattered through the map that can’t be equipped at the Spawn screen and which must be picked up by players. These include weapons like the .50 caliber M82 sniper rifle. Stay tuned for more details on the upcoming first person shooter.
