Battlefield 1 Weapons 


Shotguns

The ultimate close-quarters weapon. Slower to fire than an SMG, but packs a devastating punch and a wide spread to tear opponents to shreds in the trenches.


Remington Model 10

The Model 10 is a pump-action shotgun utilized by the United States Army in WW1. Used for trench raids and other close-combat encounters, the brutality of this weapon reportedly caused the German Empire to protest its use in warfare, calling for a ban that was no heeded. The Model 10 was specifically designed for combat, with a shorter barrel length and a bayonet mount.

The Browning Auto 5 semi-automatic shotgun entered service in 1905 and was primarily used by the Americans in WW1. The Shotgun features a long-barrel, presumably for a tighter spread, and contains 5 shells. Seen in gameplay, the pump-action slows the firing somewhat, although the weapon clearly is devastating in close-quarters. We’re going to guess one or two solid shots will down most opponents without armor, and the spread means you won’t need to be entirely accurate.

The Winchester Model 1871 Shotgun can be glimpsed in the first reveal trailer. Similar to the Browning Auto 5, the Winchester was widely used by American forces, especially for close-combat trench raids. Expect to see this weapon used to defend against Bayonet charges, or when fighting in urban areas or inside buildings — anywhere you’ll have an advantage against anyone foolish enough to get too close.
