Battlefield 1 expert Westie appears to have found something very interesting.
Peter Olofsson Hermanrud is the lead weapon artist for Battlefield 1. While browing his profile on ArtStation, Westie found several artist renders of existing battlefield 1 weapons, and a render of a weapon that does not currently exist. This render appears to be a crossbow grenade launcher.
Battlefield 3 had a similar weapon, that was released in the Aftermath DLC. You could argue that grenade launches are a staple of other FPS shooters. It’s time that Battlefield caught up to the pack. Westie makes a valid argument in his video below.
It’s also been speculated that this new crossbow grenade launcher could be added to the Medic Class. Chlak this up to being another Battlefield 1 mystery.
Speculation has also lead us to belive that this weapon could be included in the first paid Battlefield 1 DLC, which will be called “They Shall Not Pass”
