Top 10 weapons we want in Battlefield 4

The top ten weapons we wish to see in BF4, from the MAC-10, to the Desert Eagle.

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

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.

9: MP5

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.

8: XM8

Battlefield 4 XM8
An experimental assault rifle that never entered production (and was cancelled in 2005), the XM8 was a popular weapon in Bad Company 1 & 2.

7: M1A1 Thompson

Battlefield 4 tommy gun
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

Battlefield 4 flashbang

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.

5: MAC-10

Battlefield 4 Mac-10

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.

5: AK-101

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.

3: AK-47

Battlefield 4 AK-47
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

Battlefield 4 Desert Eagle

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.

What weapons would you love to see in Battlefield 4? Let us know in the comments section!

    I would definitely love to see flashbangs and smoke grenades in BF4.

    A weapon I would like to see is the newest version of the AK-47, the AK-12. I think it should replace the AK-74M.

    Another weapon I would like to see in BF4 is the cheytac ‘intervention’. It’s supposed to be the most accurate sniper rifle in the world and if features an unique design which makes it an interesting weapon.

    Oh and the reason BF3 didn’t include the Desert Eagle was because it doesn’t really serve a purpose in the millitary, according to Demize99. Still, the same goes for the .44 magnum so who knows what BF4 will bring.

      May 28th, 2013 at 2:58 pm

      The only thing that makes the m200 intervention more accurate is that it comes with a ballistic PDA that takes all calculations and guess work out of it for the soldier but yes its a great weapon. I’d like to Macmillan sniper rifles.

        May 28th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

        I’d like to see a S&W 500 magnum, and an Ironworks 20mm rifle introduced, but that will never happen…. 🙁

        • Kutark
          May 28th, 2013 at 9:30 pm

          Man, i agree with you 100%. .500 SW revolver would be awesome. And even cooler would be a 20mm anti-material gun.

          Ive always been annoyed by that. They always have rocket launchers in FPS games, but NEVER have anti material rifles.

          Yes, its heavy and unwieldy. But they can just put some restrictions, like you have to be bi-pod’d. You move at say 60% speed with it equipped. And if you fire it from the hip it should be WILDLY innacurate. But, 2 or 3 rounds should be able to take out smaller vehicles and things like helicopters with ease.

      • Kutark
        May 28th, 2013 at 9:26 pm

        Uh yeah. Thats patently false. The Cheytac Intervention is extremely accurate because the .408 cheytac bullet has a ballistic coefficient of 0.934. Because of this is retains a lot more velocity and consequently energy downrange. This also allows it to buck wind much better and reduces bullet drop significantly.

        The bullet also has more energy past 800 yards than a .50 BMG. Even though its a 400gr bullet and the .50bmg is generally around 750 grains. For more info, the 400gr bullet leaves the barrel at about 2900fps and at 1000 yards it still going 2120 fps which equates to ~4000 ft/lb of energy. Compare that to a .50bmg which leaves also at about 2900fps and by 1000 yards is going 1480fps and generating ~3200 ft/lb.

        The .50bmg was never intended to be a sniper round. It just ended up being tasked for that. .50bmg is and always was an anti-material round.

          So quit asking for .50 BMG sniper rifles, feel free to ask .338 Lapua or .300 Winchester based rifles though =)

    AK-47, XM8, Desert Eagle, USP-45, any double-barreled shotgun, ACR, P90, MP5 and Famas.

    I’d top it off by asking for a lightsaber but rumor has it Dice are making Battlefront 3 on the Frostbite 3 engine, so I’ll get plenty of glorious HD lightsaber action soon enough >:)

    1. KRISS
    2. 1911. The one from BFBC2. So much more powerful than the one in BF3.

    All of these weapon choices are horrible. Plus, the MP5 is in BF3, its the G53. The only good weapons mentioned are the two AK’s, other than that each gun is from a horrible game (BC, COD) or is just noobish and not needed in BF4.

    • bung
      May 28th, 2013 at 4:42 pm

      Are you saying BFBC/BFBC2 was bad? What are you smoking? Also, what does it matter if the gun has already been used in a bad game (COD)? That shouldn’t affect whether or not its BF4 worthy.

      • Adam
        May 28th, 2013 at 9:27 pm

        I am not saying that BC was bad, I am saying though that they are NOT Battlefield games. They put shame to the Battlefield series but they are great “Bad Company” games. The Desert Eagle isn’t even used within the Military, You played way too much CoD.The pistol is too big, and unreliable. It is unrealistic to have the gun in the game! The gun is just put in to games for entertaining little kids. BF4 should not stoop to this level.

        • Killzone VII
          May 31st, 2013 at 12:03 am

          It’s also unrealistic to jump out of a jet pull out a rocket launcher, shoot an enemy jet, and jump back into your original jet to fly off safely.

          It’s a videogame dude, a VIDEO GAME. Not real life, it’s entire purpose is to give us an entertaining g experience that we wouldn’t be able to enjoy otherwise, who gives a shit if the real military doesn’t use Desert Eagles, they also don’t stand up while shooting a sniper rifle, nor do they do it without a spotter. If you’re going for realism I could go on for days about why Battlefield isn’t realistic.

  16. Hard Dominator
    May 28th, 2013 at 10:26 pm

    You mention the smoke grenades and flashbangs but what about the tear gas and gas mask in bf2? They could also use that to simulate suffocation for when you are walking trough a constant wall of smoke. Having to change filters(shameless metro last light copy) would put some delaying effect on the enemy side when they are totally dominating the other team in a map like metro.

  17. danvan
    May 28th, 2013 at 10:52 pm

    Then the gas mask is acually 7se for something

    *facepalms* It seems like a 12yr old came up with this list… you clearly want BF4 to become Arcadefield or Casualfield?
    Remove the CG, Deagle, Thompson and MAC-10 already for the love of god. You just picked guns which are popular among reknown online shooters (CS, CoD, BC) instead of picking what resembles high-tech current weaponry. Leave your nostalgia at the door please.

    a Desert Eagle with different ammo types, for example when in create a kit menu, you can switch between a .50AE which should be a 3-shot kill(as it is not that great ballistics wise) and could disable vehicles in 5-7 shots, .357 magnum, 2 shot kill with similar recoil, but without the option to disable vehicles, a .45ACP, similar to a 1911, and 9x19mm parabellum (different ammo types affect recoil, center speed, and mag capacity.) also, a USP.45 would be nice, kind of like a G17c with less ammo capactiy, accuracy, and greater damage. also, I would love the regular MP5. not the short version, but the real one.
