So… what were the deadliest and most OP weapons of that era? Which ones are we relatively certain will be featured (even if in an alternate slightly modified or renamed version) in Battlefield 1? Obviously there are a ton of choices and we couldn’t possibly list them all… but here’s a Top 5 list sorted in no particular order.

 Big Bertha & The Paris Gun : Big Bertha was a giant German howitzer with a caliber of 16.5 inches, wider than most battleship guns at the time. Hurling a nearly one-ton shell as far as eight miles away, Big Bertha smashed Belgian forts in 1914, allowing the German armies to pass through Belgium and almost capture Paris. The Paris Gun made history by hurling shells into the stratosphere. Where Big Bertha was squat, the Paris Gun was long and narrow, firing a 200-pound shell as far as 81 miles away, which allowed the Germans to conduct a long-range bombardment of Paris.
 Maxim MG 08 Machine Gun: The enduring image of World War I is the machine gun, and usually a German machine gun. It’s easy to see why. The Germans armed their troops with machine guns far more lavishly than their opponents. Because they were mostly on the defensive in the West after 1914, they could emplace their machine guns in fortified positions and then mow down advancing Allied soldiers.
The MG 08 was the standard German machine gun. A copy of Hiram Maxim’s design from 1894, it was a clumsy weapon by modern standards. The early war version weighed 60 pounds for the machine gun alone, plus nearly a hundred pounds for the carriage and accessories. Even mounted on a handier tripod later in the war, it wasn’t exactly a mobile weapon. It could however spray out 500 rounds a minute, which cut down massed Allied infantry assaults like a scythe. It was still in use 50 years later in the Communist Chinese and North Korean armies.

 Fokker Triplane: You have to love the name and LevelCap has already made a few jokes about the Fokker Dr.I. Baron von Richtofen flew it and Snoopy was in dog fights with it. Could there be any higher testament to the OP nature of the Fokker Dr 1 triplane? By today’s standards, a hundred mile-per-hour top speed is laughable, even compared to a Cessna 172. Actually, it was slow compared to Allied fighters like the Sopwith Triplane and Spad VIII.
But blessed with extreme maneuverability and a rapid climb rate, and in the hands of an airborne killer like the Red Baron and his “Flying Circus,” the triple-winged Fokker terrorized the skies over the Western Front in 1917-18. This one just may bring back our “Fly Boys of BF3”, many of whom felt BF4 bombed with it’s jet gameplay.

 Type 93 U-boat: Enemy boat spotted! Obviously the U-boat is another enduring image of WWI, which marked the advent of naval and undersea warfare. One OP German U-boat was the Type 93 U-boat.
Fast they were not, sailing underwater at a torpid pace of 9 knots, and 17 knots on the surface. Endurance in those days was limited (the earliest World War I U-boats could only stay underwater an hour before the batteries ran out). But armed with an 88- or 105-millimeter deck guns and six torpedo tubes with 16 reloads, the 24 Type 93s built by Germany sank 411,000 tons of Allied shipping.

 Mark V tank: Every weapon has a counter-weapon (Rock, Paper Scissors). The machine gun’s nemesis was the tank. Entrenched machine guns could survive weeks of massive artillery bombardment. A tracked vehicle, well-armored enough to survive machine gun fire and powerful enough to knock down barbed wire, could breach a path for attacking infantry to cross No Man’s Land without being cut to pieces.
The 29-ton British Mark V was the heaviest British tank of the war. It may have resembled a paper clip on treads, but its long, wide shape was better at crossing trenches than more elegantly designed modern tanks. Its roughly half-inch armor was thick enough to deflect bullets, and armed with either 57-millimeter cannon (the “male” version”) or just .303-caliber machine guns (the “female” version), it could destroy machine gun nests and pillboxes. Battlefield tankers can anticipate not only the bad ass Mark V tank but several others as well.

•There will be four factions available in multiplayer mode.
•Bolt action rifle will not serve as primary weapon.
•Artillery support can launch toxic gas rounds.
•Building made of wood will catch fire and burn. And the building that caught fire will collapse after some time.
•You can control battleships like you did in Battlefield 1942.
•Only pilot class gets access to parachutes.
•Flamethrower will be battle pickups like what we have in Battlefield 4.
