Battlefield 1 Weapons 


Submachine Guns

Loaded with Pistol-caliber rounds and utilizing larger magazines, the submachine gun quickly became a staple of trench raids. With a fast rate-of-fire, these weapons are deadly at close-range. Just don’t hope for pinpoint accuracy.


Standschütze Hellriegel 1915

This unique ‘Heavy Submachine Gun” was designed in Austria-Hungary and featured a belt-fed design, similar to a full-sized machine gun of the period. Like those other weapons, the Standsch even utilized a water-cooled barrel. Instead of carrying a belt of bullets, the weapon was fed by mounting the belt in a large drum magazine. This is a pretty rare weapon for the period, and utilizes 9mm rounds.

The Beretta-designed submachine gun is available to the Assault Class and features a distinctive top-loading magazine. This is the first submachine gun used by the Italian Army, and seeing as the Italian Army are heavily featured in trailers and gameplay, you’ll likely see this weapon often. It comes standard with 25-rounds per magazine.


Artillery Luger (Luger Rifle)

The Lange Pistole 08 is a Luger variant with three major additions; a longer barrel, a stock, and a 32-round drum magazine. The weapon was assigned to German artillerymen for personal defense, and is calibrated for medium-range combat. It’s a handheld weapon that’s light and packs plenty of fast-firing bullets. While this isn’t technically a submachine gun, we expect the LP08 will fall into this category thanks to it’s large magazine and ranged capability, turning a pistol into a dangerous weapon with similar functionality to the MP18.

The German Empire’s MP 18 is clearly visible strapped to the hero’s hip in this promotional shot. The MP 18 is seen as one of the first practical submachine guns used on the battlefield. Seen with a 32-round drum-magazine in the picture above, the weapon was also capable of using a lighter box magazine. The MP18 might just be the standard SMG when up against the German Empire, and it’s impressive design went on to inspire the ubiquitous MP40 found in countless WW2 shooters.
