WHAT'S NEW IN BATTLEFIELD 1


Although it has the Battlefield name, the latest iteration in the franchise Battlefield 1 is a big step in a new direction. Much of what you know from before has changed, so we wanted to take the time to show you what's new, and how to best utilize the changes!


Elite Classes

One of the biggest changes to moment-to-moment combat is the addition of Elite Classes. Randomly during combat, an Elite Class box might spawn. The first person to pick it up will be transformed into a speciality unit.

These new Elite Classes aren't as powerful as a Hero from Battlefront, but they are considerably stronger than a standard soldier. An Elite Class takes less damage, has their health refilled if they happened to be low when picking it up, and gain the use of a unique weapon. One of the most common is the Flamethrower, however there are a few others.

Elite Classes can be a pain to deal with, but they don't spawn too often, and once spotted, they can be taken down with a barrage of bullets.


Limited Gun Selection

Due to the nature of the game, there simply aren't that many guns to choose from. Unlike modern times, where there are dozens and dozens of competent weapons, that wasn't quite the same over 100 years ago.




The end result is that your Classes are limited in their gun selection. Each class now has one primary weapon, with about 16 possible options to choose from. This is a stark shift from B3/B4 where you could switch between several weapon tiers, with each tier having various weapons within it.


Reloads Are Slow!

One thing that is easy to forget about older weapons is that they take a long, long time to reload. Modern shooters have spoiled us, with the near instant reloads allowing us to constantly be in the habit of reloading after a firefight. This is a habit to try and avoid in Battlefield 1. Constantly reloading is going to eat up a lot of time, and is very likely to get you killed.

If you find yourself needing a gun, and your weapon needs to reload, switch to your pistol. It's there for a reason and you can likely take it out, fire all the rounds in it and put it away in the same time it takes to reload your primary weapon.

This also applies to other weapons, like stationary turrets or ones mounted on vehicles. These slow reloads mean your shots better hit, or you'll find yourself in a sticky situation!



Weapon Customization

Another area where things have been toned back and made clearer. No longer are there 20 different attachments you can place on a weapon. Instead, there is a very limited selection. Usually there are three categories. Sights which allows you to change the mounted sight on a weapon, Zoom which lets you adjust the level of zoom when scoping in. Lastly, the Bayonet slot lets you equip a blade to the end of your gun.




Cosmetic Customization Still Exists

Although attachments may be limited, you can still make your gun look extra fancy through various cosmetics. By opening Battle-packs, you can unlock skins for your guns. Which skin you get is random, based on the Battle-pack.




Yes, Battle-packs are Back



Battle-packs have returned. You can obtain them a couple of ways. Firstly, you can purchase them from the store for real world currencies. Alternately, you have a random chance of obtaining a Battle-pack after each multiplayer match.

With each Battle-pack you open, you will unlock a new cosmetic item. There is also a chance to obtain experience point boosts as well. The chance of this happening changes, depending on the category of Battle-pack you have.



Scrap

Along with the change to Battle-packs, there is also a scrap system in the game. If you open a lot of Battle-packs, you may start getting duplicate skins for your guns. Instead of hoarding them, you can destroy these skins to earn Scrap. This can be accomplished by going to the More tab along the top of the screen, then into Battle-packs and lastly into your Inventory. Here you'll see the skins you have, and any duplicates you own.



Once you've amassed some Scrap, you can spend it on more Battle-packs. The quality of the skin you destroy will determine how much Scrap you earn, and on that same note, the quality of the Battle-pack will determine how much it costs.



Vehicle Repair

Nearly every vehicle in the game now has a self repair option. These repair options usually come in two types. The first is a repair you can activate at anytime, but you have to stop moving your vehicle. While holding repair, a gauge will begin filling while the vehicle sits still (or flies in a straight line for planes). Once the gauge fills, the repair activates and heals for about 20HP. If you are shot at any time, the repair cancels.

The other type of repair is a skill which comes with the vehicle. These types of repairs fix you for a small amount instantly, then take several seconds to recharge.

Of course you can still fix any vehicle by having someone actively repair it using the Repair Tool.



Trains, Dreadnoughts and Behemoths

This is less a new system and more an extension of a previous one. In Battlefield 1, on certain maps, a Battle Train or Behemoth will spawn. These only appear for the losing team, as an aid to help them win the match.

Trains are obviously limited to the tracks that run through a map, but have multiple gun mounts and take a lot of damage before exploding. Behemoths (a Zeppelin), can fly around more freely, but are very slow moving and the Dreadnought is a giant battleship, that can siege the land from a distance but is obviously limited to the water.



Again, these two vehicle types only spawn once, and can only be controlled by the losing team. Once destroyed, they will not spawn again for the remainder of the match.
