AMERICAN WEAPONS That May Come To Battlefield 5 Pacific Theater

Americans are coming this fall to battlefield
5. While some American weapons such as the M1
Carbine, the remington model 8 and so on are already in the game, we should be seeing some
other weapons and vehicles. Today I am going to discuss which guns might
be coming to the game. Some of these have already been datamined
and I will let you know which one they are so you will know there will be a higher chance
that they will be added. I will also give my thoughts on what other
weapons I think would be cool to come to the game. Let’s start off with the pistol category. We already have the British classic Webley
Mk VI revolver in the game, but I think only having 1 in the game doesn’t do revolvers
justice. The Smith and Wesson Model 27 is another great
choice to be added into the game. It is part of the leak so I think the chances
of pretty good. The model 27 is the original 357 magnum revolver
and at the time it was first made in 1935, it was known as the registered magnum. It shoots a 357 magnum which is a hell of
a round. It was mostly used locally in the united states
for the police department. And a bit of an interesting piece of history
is that General George Patton of the US Third and Seventh army also ordered one of these. In order to inspire his troops, he carried
this flashy ivory white handled model 27 and has called it his killing gun. Wouldn’t it be cool if DICE makes an ivory
white skin just for this? When we talk about pistols in WW2, we can’t
leave out the Colt company. But the iconic Colt M1911 is already in the
game so how about the Colt Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless. Over 500000 of these were made up to 1945
and most of these were issued to the US army and air force general officers. And just like any other good weapons, it was
also favored by gangsters at the time because of how compact it is, ranging from Al Capone
to bonnie parker. The original models shoot a 32ACP round and
the later 1908 model shoots the 380 ACP. Alright, now let’s move on to what the assault
class might get. Yes and yes you guessed right, it’s the M1
Garand. This has been found in the files and will
most certainly be a part of the life of an assualt player. It is a 30-06 semi-automatic rifle. It was the first standard issue semi-automatic
rifle that replaced the springfield M1903 bolt action rifle. It uses an 8 round en bloc clip that makes
the famous ping sound. One issue with the en bloc clip is that when
the soldiers wanted to launch grenades from their rifle, they often have to remove the
partially loaded clip and replaced the entire clip with blanks. Another potential problem was the actual ping
sound it makes. It was originally reported that the ping sound
could alert German and Japanese soldiers that the M1 Garand is empty but it was never verified. Some accounts from prior german soldiers also
noted that the ping was not noticeable during gun fights. As you can see in these clips, the ping is
not really audible compared to the gunfire itself. It would be interesting to see how DICE decides
to balance this gun with the rest of the semi automatic rifles in the game. Would the Gewehr 43 simply be a superior option
due to its magazine reload specialization and its ability to hold 10 rounds? That we will have to wait and see. Alright, moving on, the next weapon will be
the M2 carbine. It is essentially the same gun as the M1 Carbine
in the game, which was designed for the support combatants who were not otherwise able to
use the M1 Garand because of the weight. The M1 carbines were so successful that the
troops were asking for a selective fire option. This would end up to be the M2 carbine. This is pretty much the same gun as the M1
carbine but with a switch to turn it fully automatic. This gun has also been found in the game files
but once again, i await to see how DICE will want to distinguish between the 2 guns. Then the next one here will be a lesser known
rifle. It would be the Johnson M1941 rifle. It is a 30-06 semi automatic rifle that was
first designed by Melvin Johnson by the time the M1 Garand was well into its way of production. And because of various reasons such as higher
maintenance costs and the fact that the US Army already placed orders on a large number
of M1 Garand, the Johnson rifle did not see much of combat. But in the end, Johnson was able to sell some
of these rifles to the US government and was used by the paramarines and the army’s special
forces. This gun has quite an interesting design that
feature a 10 round rotary magazine and accepts 5 round clips. Then let’s talk about the medic class. As you know we got the whole new class of
weapons which are the bolt action carbines recently. So how about the M4 Survival Rifle? It is a 22 calibre bolt action rifle that
was used as part of the survival gear for aircrew in case they were shot down. And to be honest, this will probably be a
bit of a meme gun if it does come. It only has a 4 shot detachable magazine and
shoots a 22 hornet round. But nonetheless, I think it is a pretty cool
rifle. How about the SMGs you say. Of course we will have to get the M1A1 Thompson,
some minor details have also been found for this gun in the files. It is slightly different from the M1928A1
thompson we have in game. Some of the major differences would be that
it usually takes a 20-30 round mag instead of the 50 round drum. Also, its bolt and the ejection port are moved
to the right. You probably noticed that M1928A1’s bolt bounces
back and forth when you fire so I can only imagine how much better the irons will be
for the M1A1 variant. Then I’d want the M3 Grease gun. It fires the 45ACP just like the thompson. It was cheaper to make and lighter as well. But it was definitely less accurate than the
thompson. But how would DICE balance this if it is less
accurate and simply just worse than the thompson? I would suggest that perhaps we get the suppressed
version of this weapon that was used by the OSS. It just looks damn cool and would definitely
make me want to use it even if it is statistically worse. As the Thompson was more costly to produce
and there were concerns for its supply, the united states marine corps adopted this sub
machine gun mostly for the officers and NCOs. And this would be the 45 Reising submachine
gun. Over 100,000 were made. While this was cheaper, more accurate, better
balance and lighter than the Thompson, it does suffer from various reliability issues
and was eventually replaced with other rifles such as the M1 carbine. In the end though, these guns proved to be
much more successful at local law enforcement agencies where battlefield ruggedness was
not a huge concern. The next one would be the United Defense M42
submachine gun. It was also known as the Marlin as it was
the subcontractor who actually manufactured the guns. It was originally designed to replace the
thompson but with various issues including legal and manufacturing right issues, it was
not widely used. Two prototypes were made, which were the 9mm
and the 45ACP version. But eventually only the 9mm version was mass
produced. As you may have noticed, the magazine here
are 2 25-round box mag stuck together and that’s how it was originally made. In the end, it was found to be most suited
for resistance forces use. A lot of these weapons were air dropped on
the island of Crete and all the way to China to fight against the Japanese. Then how about light machine guns? Oh I can imagine the backlash if this gun
is left out! How about the M1918 Browning Automatic Rifle
or the BAR for short? This gun was used in WWI and then WWII and
then all the way to the Vietnam war when the early M16s were having lots of reliability
issues. This is one of the guns that has been found
in the files so I can’t wait to use this iconic weapon on the battlefield! Judging from Battlefield’s history of adding
prototype weapons, how about I suggest a gun that fits right into the theme. How about a gun called WAR, or winchester
automatic rifle? I can’t think of a gun with a name more fitting,
can you? This gun never left the prototype stage and
it was based on the Winchester Model 30 which was also an experimental self loading rifle
as a competing option to the M1 Garand. This was designed to hold 20 rounds firing
the 30-06. During initial testing phase, it had very
impressive scores but it was the right equipment for the wrong time as the later tests did
not occur until well into 1945. The war ended and so did the interest of the
WAR. Either way, I still think this is a cool weapon
and a great weapon of its time. Next up, this weapon resembles the FG42 in
many ways and it is the Johnson M1941 light machine gun. Just like the other LMGs, it also fires a
30-06 round. It had an adjustable rate of fire. It was lighter than the BAR and was utilized
by commandos, like the Devil’s Brigade or the 1st speical service force. For medium machine guns, that is one weapon
that is a must, and that would be the M1919 Browning machine gun. This weapon has also been leaked so the chances
are definitely high. In fact, I think a lot of people would rage
if this is not included. I am particularly interested in the A6 variant. It first saw combat in late 1943. It was lighter than the previous variants
and was able to switch barrels relatively quickly. This is definitely not as efficient than the
MG42 but still an improvement. It has a roughly 400-600 rpm rate of fire
so it is definitely going to be one of the slower firing MMGs in the game. Moving onto the recon kit. The M1917 Enfield has been found in the files
for a long time now so I can expect that to be coming at some point of time. It has the nickname American Enfield which
was a modified version of the P14 Enfield rifle. In WW2, it was given to mortarmen and artillerymen
as there were shortages of the M1 Garand. The recon kit wouldn’t be complete without
the Springfield M1903. I am particularly interested in the A1 version
with the 8 power scope used mainly by the United States Marine Corps. The Army’s version of the gun which was the
A4 variant has a 2.75 power sight. Eventually these were used by both branches
of the military but proven to be not very effective as sniper rifles because of the
the poor scope quality. Then another lesser known rifle, which is
the Winchester Model 70. It was mostly used in training camps but some
did end up seeing action in the pacific campaign. Some of these were fitted with an 8 power
scope as sniper weapons on guadalcanal and even up to the Korean war. It also fires a 30-06 round and can hold up
to 5 rounds. Then it comes to the self loading rifles. How about the M1C Garand. Around 8000 of these were made at the time
and it was adopted as a standard army sniper rifle by June of 1944. Still it was not the best design and had issues
which eventually led to the development of M1D. But that variant did not really see combat
even up to the Korean war. Last but not least the shotguns! We already have the Winchester M1987 trench
gun and the browning automatic 5 in the game. But I have 2 extra suggestions and that would
be the Ithaca 37. This has been found in the files so I am pretty
sure it will be coming. It was used in WW2 all the way to the vietnam
war and performed extremely well in the jungles. Interestingly, one of the largest users of
this shotgun was the NYPD in the 1970s to 1980s. The second one would be the Winchester Model
1912 or the M12 for short. Over 80,000 of these were purchased during
the war and was mostly used in the pacific theater. It performed outstandingly when the marines
were fighting on the pacific islands fighting the Japanese troops. And that is it for some of the weapons that
have already been found in the files as well as some of the guns I want to see coming to
the game. I do want to say that nothing here is guaranteed
to be released as even the leaked weapons are a leak afterall. Anyway, what do you think of these weapons,
are these the ones you want to see as well? Did I leave out some of the must-add weapons
or are there any other american weapons you want to see during this fall? Let me know in the comment section below. If you want to support my channel and want

  1. Did that list cover what you wanted? Do you want any other American guns?
    Edit: "kaar-been" is the American pronunciation. "Kar-bine" is British.

  2. The m1 garand rifle shoots a 30-06 cartridge and needs to hit like a sniper rifle since it uses the same cartridge as a sniper. No more weak garand.

  3. They need to add the b-29 superfortress and just like how the mosquito has the 4000 pound bomb the b-29 needs an atomic bomb 100% definitely wouldn’t be overpowered just vaporising the enemy team and the map

  4. Incorrect about the grease gun being less accurate than the Thompson. The Thompson was the less accurate smg due to its higher cyclic rate. The grease gun had a slow enough fire rate, it reduced muzzle climb which made it very easy to get your sights back on target after each round was fired

  5. I'll be very surprised if the M1 Garand isn't a Scout rifle. Its 8 round capacity puts it well below all the other SARs the Assault Class gets.

  6. The M1G would probs be a 2 shot with a 1 tap headshot but I hope the short barrel variant of the m1895 makes it as medic carbine

  7. Since they do alternate history they can add all the stuff they want.
    Dice adds AK47

    Like they can add fictional weapons?
    If it’s a fictional story why are the weapons the same?
    And vehicles? The war was affected by where the battles were

  8. If this is the pacific theatre and not just an American ad on were is all of the Japanese weapons

  9. Honestly, most smgs function about the same. High mag, high rate of fire, low accuracy, or the other kind. Assault needs something to combat the STG 44 or the Gewer. Support needs the BAR and some shotguns, it has no flavor. And support got the P08 for cqb and the meta gun.

  10. When the M1grand reloded and the us soldiers thought that the ping gave away that they needed to reload they ended up hitting empty clips against their tin helmets to make a ping to draw out an enemy soldier and then shoot him

  11. we need the at least some parts of Normandy campaign. maps especially from Operation OVERLORD, Liberation of Caen, St. Mere Eglise, St. Come du Mont, Carentan, Nijmengen, Arnhem (operation market garden)

  12. So Dice is skipping over the other European factions? So we are not getting the French, Russian, Italian factions.

  13. I really hope they don't add the m2 carbine. Yeah it was finished by 1944 (it was like the very end, so basically '45) but it was finished so late that it didn't see actual action in ww2. Its kind of like the Thompson in ww1, it was finished before the war ended but they didn't get shipped out, which is what pissed me off when they added it to bf1. Also, I hope they add the model 55 reising instead of the mentioned model 50. The m55 saw more combat, especially in the Pacific

  14. If anyone ever shot those battle rifles from back then without hearing protection, I'll let you in on a secret. I got a Lee enfield, M1, Mosin, and Krag. Your ears will ring after a single shot so the ping from the M1 isnt noticed when all you hear is a high pitched ringing

  15. Thank god for a new change.

    Can we get the ability to edit our tanks and planes in game without having to have our reticle on one to spawn in.

    And can we edit out actual tanker or pilot guns, weapons, and gadgets?

  16. Me : I wish you could add the M1903 Springfield into the game.

    DICE : Okay, I'll do it for ya.

    Me : Yay~ I'll shoot grandpa's rifle with my Recon in BFV~

    DICE : *added the Unertl 8 power sniper scope in game*

  17. What about the Japanese weapons?

    The Type 100, Nambu pistol, Type 96, Type 99, Type 92 HMG, Arisaka Type 99 and even the Type 5 prototype rifle as it was used in BF 1943.

  18. The M1A1 carbine is in the game and it has a fake stupid muzzle break which it didn't have. The M1 carbine is what the raging feminist lesbian soldier is holding under her arm on the initial loading screen when you launch the game. M1 Garand in BF V will suck ass, because it will hold only 8 rounds so 2 or 3 less than Gewehr 43 and it has aperture sight, which nowadays nobody knows how to implement in the game so it doesn't limit your sight picture and you can effectivelly track targets. And no it won't do more dmg than for example Gewehr 43 because DICE does not know how to balance shit and if they did make the .30-06 bullets do more damage, they would then limit its rate of fire or something so yeah all of you looking forward to M1 Garand, cool, but you are most probably going to be really disapointed with its performance in the game.

  19. The garand should be a 2 shot kill because when it's put in as a 3 shot kill it sucks in every game it is put in and my favorite rifle is the Johnson rifle and it's never in any wwII games

  20. So is the Pacific Theater going to drop with like 5 or 6 maps or is going to be like 1 map at launch with the promise of like 1 a month which turns into 1 every 4 months, anyone know?

  21. Ridiculous that we have to wait almost a year for content that should of been present day one, bf1's launch was like night and day by comparison.

  22. I want to see the easy 8. Or the M4A3E8, or the fury tank. However you want to call it.
    Edit: I know their all the same thing I was just putting out 3 different ways people call the tank.

  23. American Russian and Japanese factions need to be added before the 1st year anniversary of the game! How van you call it a world war 2 game withouth those factions! Along with weapons suited to the factions, Japanese tanks and aircraft! The game is still missing so much content and the game is buggy as fuck! And the fact that there's nothing naval based is beyond me! Why is there not a Normandy beach landing map? One of the biggest conflicts of the war! Dice are really slacking with this game and its over half a year old already… Its a bit of a joke if you ask me!

  24. Imagine making a WW2 game and having no Americans, Russians, or Japanese for the first year. Horrible decision imo. People want to see the famous battles, not some random fight in a rural small town in France.

  25. Funny that you say tge grease gun was worse than the thompson but it was more liked by troops, easier to controll in full auto, easier to carry and served longer in the military

  26. That bit about the garand ping being bad because it alerted enemy soldiers to being out is false, the army would have ditched it for a box mag if it was for starters as well in the loud nature of combat it’s impossible to hear people near you let alone potentially hear a ping

  27. 5:16 The grease gun was not less accurate than the Thompson. It’s was actually substantially more accurate than the Thompson since it’s fire rate was slower and allowed the shooter to do follow up shots right after the other while the Thompson gives the shoot a far more difficult time trying to perform this since soon as you fire your site picture doesn’t always realign easily because of recoil, firerate and weapon design.

  28. Dice should add specializations for pistols like silencers, clip size, reload speed, hip fire, ADS fire, swap time, dual wielding, damage and cosmetics as well.


  30. What about the mauser. We need the C96 mauser. It can also have a pistol carbine variant similar to the P08

  31. just want to point out that the model C will not be a recon weapon. The scope from the M1C is the exact same scope that the assault can already use on most of their guns, so as an assault you can just put that 3X scope on the garand and you have an M1C.

  32. I'm since probably the bar and the m1 are going to be in the game I want the Johnson rifle and the grease gun

  33. Right now In bf5 there should be Americans, British, French, Italian, and German factions to say the least.

  34. I want soviets.
    That's all.
    Just a PPSH.
    That's all.
    Why EA?
    Why did you release a content lacking game?
    Why did you do this to your fans?

  35. So I have been thinking a lot about, at least ground vehicles for the US and Japanese armies in BFV for the future. And some of the questions were answered through data mining. So if the M4A3 and LVT tanks are confirmed, there are still a few open slots to be filled. the Sherman tanks is a medium tank variant. As we all know, there are multiple classes of tanks in game, Light, Medium, Heavy, Tank Destroyer, Anti-Air and Reinforcement. So here is a list of possible tanks to fill those empty slots.

    Light Tanks: For the US, my primary answer is the Stuart. Now im more inclined to believe if the Stuart is used, it will be the upgraded M5 variant than its older and smaller M3 counterpart. Mainly because the M5 was faster, better armored and its 37mm guns were pretty decent. This also aligns with the other light tank in the game, the Pz. 38t. but its too son to tell. Another US light tank option could be the m24 Chaffee, but I think it would be too big and powerful to qualify for BFVs lights tanks. Plus it didnt see much attention during the war due to its late arrival. So my prediction is the M5 Stuart will be America's Light Tank.

    Now im going to skip the medium variants since we already were given those, but Heavy Tanks are also tricky since neither the US nor Japan had working heavy tanks, at least until the end of the war with the US. Now the US was testing and experimenting with heavy tank designs during the war, but none of them saw any combat till the very end. First we have the T1/M6 program, one of the earliest heavy tank programs fielded by the US and if BF wanted to, it would be a good candidate for the game. Its not too powerful, good armor and its big. However compared to the tiger, it could be easily outmatched in firepower and protection. Another tested tank was the t-series heavy tanks. Such as the T29, T30 and T34. But again the problem is balance, but this time, these tanks would be very overpowered. they had superb armor, massive guns but were also slow and cumbersome. Its not out of the picture, but I dont see these in game. Lastly is the only combat operational heavy in the war which was the T25/T26/M26 program. Now this is a bit controversial since originally, this tank was indeed classified as a heavy tank, but re-designated to medium later on. But it did see service. however I think this tank is way too powerful for the game, with amazing armor and a high velocity 90mm gun. So sadly, I dont think we'll see an actual heavy tank from either Japan or US in the game due to balancing issues.

    Next tank destroyers or assault guns. The US actually had quite a few designs I think could work in game. My first pick isn't the most likely, but worth considering, the M8A1 HMC is based on the Stuart chassis, so already we have a reuse of the chassis for the light tank. But also came with a powerful 75mm howitzer gun. This could easily prove to be a powerful foe but the draw back is its lack of armor and small size. Compared to the Churchill GC, Valentine and Stug IV, its a bit outclassed. So my next pick is the most mass produced tank Destroyer by the US, the M10 Wolverine. The M10 is a great choice since it uses a Sherman Chassis (A2 variant) good speed, armor and a range of guns to use, including a 3inch gun, 76mm and a derpy 105mm. Overall, I think this could make a great TD in game. Another good candidate is the M18 hellcat. Like its M10 brother, it had a great range of guns, the 3 inch, 76mm and a 90mm, but its main feature was its speed, in fact it was the fast armored vehicle of its type ever built and had an original chassis instead of a reused tank chassis. Lastly is the M36 Jackson, basically this is just a beefed up version of the M10, with better armor, engine performance and better guns, the 76mm and 90mm. But is most likely to be used because they were built on the M4A3 chassis as well, making it ideal to copy over from the Sherman already in game. Honestly, the last 3 picks are so close to one another, any could be picked.

    Now we move onto mobile AA. The US was a bit more generous to pick from. The first choice is the M15A1. This is a plausible pick because this vehicle also used the M3 half-track design so again, recycling here. And had good armament, one 37mm cannon and two .50 caliber machine guns. I think this vehicle could do some serious damage to low flying aircraft and infantry. However its lightly armored but has decent ground speed. My other choice is also highly likely. The M19 GMC or the T65 project used a modified M5 chassis (recycling) and some powerful armament, twin 40mm bofors guns. The 40 mm is already used for both Germany and UK with their SPAAs so I think this could be a likely fit. plus its very well armored and good speed.

    Lastly are reinforcement vehicles which can be tricky to predict. Its seems the ground vehicles in this category are primarily modified variants of current vehicles, the half-track tank destroyers, the Churchill Crocodile and the Sturmtiger from the Tiger 1 chassis. So with that in mind, I think for the US the most likely candidate is the Calliope tank. Theres two reasons to choose this. First, the Calliope is already in the game and you can fight against it in the Tiger missions in campaign. The other reason is that the rocket system can be attached to any M4 frame, including the A3 variant, making this chassis recycled once again. So I believe the Calliope will be a most likely reinforcement for the US. As for a possible tank destroyer reinforcement, I think the M3 GMC would be a perfect candidate as well. This is vary similar to the T48 the UK forces have access too. It also uses the M3 half-track chassis, but the main difference is the gun. The T48 has a 57mm gun while the M3 GMC has a 75mm. so a  bit more kick.

    So there you have it, that's my opiniated guess on what sort of ground vehicles we may see from the US. I also have a list for French and Soviet vehicles but i'll tackle that another time. So I hope this helps anyone thinking about possible future vehicles.
