A YouTuber, named Westie, spoke in detail about every confirmed weapon so far for DICE’s upcoming world war 1 shooter, Battlefield 1, in one of his latest videos.
Initially, there was an unease that Battlefield 1 will feature old school weapons and armors as it is set during the period of World War 1.

The trailer of Battlefield 1, which was released last week received a lot positive comments. The trailer is now the most liked game trailer on YouTube ever. On the other hand, Activision’s Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s trailer, which was released on May 2, is now one of the most hated Youtube videos ever.
Interestingly, both Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare are scheduled to release in the last quarter of 2016. Battlefield and Call of Duty are the world’s two largest shooter franchises and the clash between the both is interesting than ever this time around.
The first move was made by the Battlefield developers when they called Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare‘s trailer a 10 year old looking game. However, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare developers didn’t lose their cool and praised the Battlefield team for their great work.
