Top 10 weapons we want in Battlefield 4
Just like previous games in the series, Battlefield 4 will feature a ton of weapons, and hopefully, many of them will be new ones that we haven’t seen before. We’ve made a top 10 list of the guns we’d love to see in Battlefield 4 multiplayer. We haven’t included weapons which will most likely be featured in the game, such as the M4 carbine, the M416 assault rifle, etc. We’ve mainly focused on weapons that have either never been in Battlefield before, or were only featured once or twice.
10: Carl Gustav
The “home wrecker” from Bad Company 2 — probably the most powerful and abused anti-infantry weapon in the series. The Carl Gustav, with the optional unlock, was deadly against infantry and more efficient at killing than any assault or sniper rifle. We’d love to see this bad boy return in Battlefield 4, albeit a bit more balanced.
Originally the starting sumbmachine gun for the US Anti tank class in BF2, we’ve yet to see the MP5 in the series, despite being one of the most popular weapons with police and special forces around the world. The series has featured the newer models in the series, such as the MP7, but we’d still love to have the option of going old school.
7: M1A1 Thompson
The “Tommy gun”, a popular 1930s gangster weapon, was included in Bad Company 2 as part of a set of WW2 weapon unlocks. While it wasn’t the most powerful nor accurate weapon, it offered a lot of nostalgia with its signature look and sound.
6: Smoke grenade / flash grenade
BF2 featured smoke grenades which were a great tactical weapon in the game. The Special Forces expansion pack introduced not only flashbangs / flash grenades, but gas grenades as well. This weapon category really needs to be expanded in Battlefield 4 with more tactical options rather than just the regular frag grenades.
Used in hundreds of Hollywood movies (usually by the bad guys), the MAC-10 is a compact machine pistol that’s been out of production for decades. Yet, it’s seen every year in movies and is sometimes confused with the Uzi. It was also made with a built-in silencer that made it one of the most silent automatic weapons in the world.
The AK-101 was the main assault rifle for the MEC forces in BF2. The AK-101 is a modified AK rifle designed for export, featuring a standard NATO cartridge. There’s even a carbine version called the AK-102.
Not AK-74, or AK-74M, or any other, just plain ol’ AK-47. It was included in BF2 as the standard assault rifle for the Chinese forces, and was the most powerful rifle in the game (but certainly not the most accurate one). We’d love to see the Ak-47 return, with its signature wooden stock and grip.
2: Barret M95
One of the most powerful sniper rifles in the world, the M95 was unlockable in BF2 where it was a fan favorite. It could famously shoot through cockpit glass in helicopters and jets. It was also featured in Bad Company 2. BF3 replaced with with the less powerful but more accurate M98B.
1: Desert Eagle .50
One of the most easily recognizable handguns in the world, the Desert Eagle has been in tons of first person shooters over the years. But surprisingly, it never been featured in the Battlefield series. It’s one of the most powerful pistols in the world, and we hope to see it in Battlefield 4.
