LOCK N’ LOAD: 15 CRAZY Guns DICE Could Add in BATTLEFIELD V


Battlefield V will include some iconic World
War II weapons – like the MP-40 and Sturmgewehr 44 – but it also has potential to bring some
weird and wacky guns. In a previous video, I talked about the Liberator
pistol, how it’s the perfect humiliation weapon, and why it should be the new Kolibri. You can check out that video with the link
on the screen. In the meantime, let’s travel a bit further
down the rabbit hole, and check out a few more crazy guns DICE could add in Battlefield
V. Here are 15 we could see in the new game. First up, let’s talk about one of my personal
favorites – the American Model 45A. This gun is a mystery for more than one reason
– in fact, we’re not even sure it was even a functional weapon. It only appears in a few photos, snapped by
an Army Signal Corps photographer. The gun featured some compelling design choices
– including a bull-pup design and integrated scope – and that’s reason enough for me
to include it here. Key elements like the weapon’s caliber,
rate of fire, and magazine size all remain unknown. However, photos reveal it was intended to
fire the M9A1 rifle grenade. If recreated in Battlefield V, this wouldn’t
be the first time DICE brought an obscure weapon to life – the developers of course
resurrected the Standschutze Hellriegel in Battlefield 1 using the only three known photos
of the weapon. Similarly, nothing survives of Model 45A,
leaving many to believe it was only a weapon mock-up. However, it’s the obscure nature of the
gun that makes it perfect for Battlefield V – DICE can balance the weapon however they
want, making it a unique option for players. Next is the EMP-44. This crude German submachine gun was intended
to be cheap and quick to produce, made principally of welded pipe – similar to the British Sten. Firing ugly at 500 rounds per minute, the
EMP-44 was chambered in the widely-available 9mm Parabellum. The weapon featured two 32-round MP-40 magazines
mounted on a slider. Once one was emptied, the other could be slid
into place to resume firing. That’s not a common design for submachine
guns, and would help the EMP-44 carve a unique niche among similar weapons. Third is the German MG 35/36, nicknamed the
“Knorr-Bremse.” Derived from the Swedish KG M/40, this light
machine gun was employed by the German military and universally despised by all who used it. The weapon fired from a side-mounted 25-round
magazine, at the rate of about 500 rounds per minute. The Knorr-Bremse was unreliable and lacked
a foregrip, which meant it could realistically only be fired from the prone position with
a bipod. Personally, I think it resembles a trombone. Silliness aside, the Knorr-Bremse at least
looks unique, thanks to its gas tube arrangement. Next is the M2 Hyde submachine gun. Brainchild of the American gun designer George
Hyde, the M2 submachine gun was intended as a substitute for the venerable Thompson. The weapon performed well in tests, but only
400 were made due to production difficulties. The Hyde had a fire rate of around 570 rounds
per minute, and could fire from either 20 or 30-round Thompson magazines. In tests, the select-fire weapon was described
as “one of the most stable and accurate guns ever seen when fired on automatic.” Eventually, the Army abandoned the M2 submachine
gun in favor of another Hyde design – the now-familiar M3 Grease Gun. Incidentally, Hyde was also responsible for
the design of the Liberator pistol, mentioned at the beginning of this video. Fifth is the Lahti-Saloranta M/26. This Finnish light machine gun made the list,
simply because it’s Finnish. Designed in 1926, this weapon saw service
against the Soviets in the Winter War. Since we’re not sure where DICE is going
with post-launch content in Battlefield V, adding the LS M26 would be a nice nod to Battlefield
players in Finland. Though not a popular weapon in the field,
the gun had a fire rate of around 500 rounds per minute. It included a 20-round magazine, and some
75-round magazines were also manufactured. The next few wacky weapons were born in the
shadows of covert operations. The British Welrod pistol is unique for quite
a few reasons – it’s bolt action, suppressed, and magazine fed. After firing a shot, the user would have to
manually cycle the weapon and chamber a new round. This was done to keep noise at a minimum. The Welrod was intended as an assassin’s
tool, designed to be pressed against its target before firing, which made it near-silent. The Mark II had a magazine capacity of 8 rounds
and was airdropped to resistance fighters in occupied countries like Denmark. Next is a weapon that bears a name similar
to the Welrod – the Welgun. Many items developed by Station IX at Welwyn
Garden City for the British Special Operations Executive adopted the “Wel” prefix. Unlike the Welrod, however, the Welgun is
a submachine gun chambered in 9mm parabellum. The weapon was intended for use by resistance
and special forces, but was not adopted, despite a good show in trials. The Welgun features some interesting design
choices, including a folding stock and no cocking handle. To chamber a round, the user actually hard
to pull the ribbed bolt back. This kept the gun’s design compact and snag
free. It fired from a 32-round magazine at the rate
of about 500 rounds per minute. Eighth is the Sledgely OSS .38 “Glove Gun.” This single-shot device was fitted on a glove
and intended as an assassination tool. The user would make a fist and strike the
target, with the trigger activated by the impact. If this seems familiar, it’s because the
Sledgely Glove Gun appears in the Quentin Tarantino film, “Inglorious Bastards.” I’d love to see the gun introduced in Battlefield
V as a melee animation for one-hit-kills, or perhaps even an easter egg. Ninth is Owen Gun. The Owen makes this list, not because it’s
ground-breaking or strange, but because it’s a unique example of how everyone contributed
to the war effort during World War II. The weapon was created by a 24-year-old Australian,
Evelyn Owen, in 1939 and evolved quickly once its potential was realized. The Owen had a reputation for reliability
and was a favorite of ANZAC forces. In fact, the weapon performed so well, it
was actually ordered by the United States, but Australian industry was overstretched. The select-fire Owen fired from a 32-round
magazine and had a fire rate of around 700 rounds per minute. This would be a nice treat for Battlefield
players in Australia and New Zealand, given the recent Battlefield 1 server problems in
that region. Next is the Reibel machine gun. This French machine gun was initially mounted
in armored vehicles or fortifications like the Maginot Line. It featured a 150 round, side-mounted pan
magazine, which would provide an interesting sight picture and reload animation in Battlefield
V. The weapon was also modified for ground combat with a bipod or tripod. The Reibel could fire up to 750 rounds per
minute, but was prone to overheating and lacked a quick-change barrel. Eleventh is the United Defense M42 submachine
gun. Another weapon initially designed to pad American
supplies of the Thompson SMG, the M42 found its role as an air-dropped resistance weapon. Chambered in the standard German 9mm parabellum,
partisans could readily find ammunition for the gun. The M42 featured a foregrip and a 25 round
box magazine. Many examples were equipped with a unique
face-to-face magazine configuration for quick reloading, and this animation would definitely
look cool in Battlefield V. The M42 could be fired in full auto or semi-automatic mode,
and had a fire rate of around 700 rounds per minute. Twelveth is the German Sturmpistole. I’m probably going to get some hate for
the suggestion, but it’s a neat weapon with some decent damage potential and flexibility. the Sturmpistole was intended to fire a few different
types of ammunition. These included high explosive grenades and
small shaped charges for anti-armor use against light vehicles. In reality, the weapon was not tremendously
effective. The gun could function similar to the Grenade
Crossbow in Battlefield 1, providing a bit more AT firepower, and smoke rounds were also
manufactured. It could be an interesting replacement for
a secondary weapon or a gadget. If DICE were feeling completely insane, they
could add the 27mm Doppelschuss – a double barreled flare launcher which could in theory
also fire some high explosive ammunition. I haven’t mentioned any Russian weapons
yet, so next, let’s talk about Mikhail Kalashnikov’s first submachine gun. Designed in 1942, the weapon was functional,
but complex. It features a foregrip, folding buttstock,
and 30 round magazine. It fired at the rate of around 600 rounds
per minute. The weapon’s design failed to upstage existing
submachine guns in mass production at the time, but it did fast-track Kalashnikov’s
career in weapon development. He would of course go on to design one of
the most prolific weapons of the 20th century – the AK-47. Fourteenth is the improvised Stinger machine
gun. During World War II in the Pacific Theater,
U.S. Marines pulled a few ANM2 machine guns from crashed Dauntless Dive Bombers. Because overheating wasn’t a concern in
the air, the lightweight ANM2 had withering fire rate of over 13-hundred rounds per minute. The only catch was that they weren’t really
adapted for ground combat. So what did the Marines do? They slapped a bipod and M1 stock on the belt-fed
gun, and then modified the trigger. Although it quickly overhead and burned through
100-round ammo belts, the weapon proved its worth on Iwo Jima. One of the Marines wielding the weapon, Tony
Stein, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery in battle, and the
weapon is specifically mentioned in his citation. It would be difficult to balance such a gun
in Battlefield V, given its high rate of fire, but it would be a worthy addition. Lastly the Delacre (du-lac-k) Modele 1936
is the one of the most interesting inter-war submachine gun designs I’ve seen to date. Unfortunately, not much is known about it,
but it’s definitely a weird weapon for the era. The Delacre SMG features a bullpup design,
and was intended to be fired one-handed with the weight of the gun resting on the wrist. According to some dubious sources, It was
allegedly chambered in 9mm Parabellum, had a 32 round magazine, and fired at the rate
of 500 rounds per minute. Interestingly, the weapon had two triggers,
one for semi-automatic fire, and the other for full auto. It’s definitely a weird gun, and never got
past the design and prototype stage. Bennet Judd created the graphic here based
on the actual patent sketches, and you can check him out in the video description. In many ways, the Delacre SMG resembles a
modern machine pistol, and would make an interesting addition to Battlefield V. What are your thoughts on all the crazy weapons
presented here? Which are your favorites? And Which do you think should be added in
Battlefield V? Tell me in the comments. If you enjoyed this video…

  1. That’s the best part about historical BF games, the crazy over-the-top stuff you can use. Also, these weapons videos are the the best thing ever

  2. I hope dice will add the feature to make any rifle an obrez
    like the obrez pistol in battlefield 1 or the mare's leg in battlefield 4

  3. I like the improvised lmg one. Dice could make it a pickup weapon, so it would have limited ammo, and they should make it eat up ammo very fast but be super effective.

  4. Great video and amazing gameplay dude…haven't seen this channel in years and I come back to see you rockin mofuckuz

  5. They should add the Type 99 rifle replicas that the Chinese red army used during the Japanese invasion, as well as the Chinese mag fed Mauser Pistol and the German C96

  6. I love when english speaking people say German words or sentences. No no I don't find it funny, yeah maybe a bit, I like how these words are pronounced and how good it's sounds because of this.

  7. yeah how about nooo. at least untill we get our missing ww2 guns like the M1A1 Thompson, M1 grand, BAR, ppsh, mosin nagant, and so on. i do not want to see copy and paste guns from bf1. i need a good ww2 game with historical accuracy with guns and single player so im hopping we will get a new ww2 game with a more realistic story (unlike that Swedish one fucking trash) eventually

  8. There’s a rifle I seen on Forgotten Weapons called the Johnson Rifle that the Marine(para marines) in the Pacific and it has a companion LMG (Johnson LMG) When they add the US faction they add it alongside the M1 Garand or later with a Pacific map,

  9. Since BF5 is out now, i would say, as a meic main, the M2 SMG would be a gift from the gods. I would also load up with a Wellgun and the Owen Gun too. I would love to get a chance to shoot the M-42 American smg, and personally, would love to jump out of a T- 34 with the russian smg. I would also love to use the last gun mentioned, as it looks very cool.

  10. I don't want to see guns they could put in the game I want to see guns they are putting in the game. Shit video. Pointless waste of time.

  11. If they gonna add Swedish guns. Like the carlgustav assault rifle i think only Swedish people will get it

  12. How about
    Thompson Light Rifle
    StG 45
    Wimmersperg Spz-kr
    Type 4 Rifle
    Experimental Model 2 Submachine Gun ?
    That were some very cool guns xD

  13. The Sturmpistole (AT Grenade Pistol) and the LS/26 made the roster today. But I want the Stinger though for Fall 2019, with a 981 RPM fire rate and a specialization for 1300 RPM.

  14. God fucking damn it. Does DICE know, that there’s a country named „Poland”? You know, there are more countries important in ww2 history than just germany, USA and UK. Just stop focusing on allies all the time… oh wait, Poland was in the Allies, but obviously didn’t receive any kind of help from them.
