Do the weapons live up to the setting?
Battlefield 1 is set in the First World War, and it looks like DICE won’t necessarily be leveraging the setting with the weapons and customization options in the game, as much as they will be with everything else in the game. At the very least, not to the same extent that they have stayed true to the setting with everything else in the game.
Reddit user CodeSanta recently posted a datamined list of all the weapon attachments, sights and other customization items that will be available in Battlefield 1. Of course, since this was data mined from the existing builds out for the game, the final names may well change when Battlefield 1 is out.
Battlefield 1 is going to release later this month on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can check out the full list of datamined items, cleaned up by Reddit user krzgui, below.
