Thanks to a data-mining sleuth on Reddit, we have some insight into future updates for Battlefield V including new maps, weapons, and perks. Let’s dig in.

The new maps are supposedly the Lofoten Islands (Norway) and Al Marj Encampment (Libya). Descriptions for each location in real-life were referenced through Wikipedia.

Lofoten Islands : “Operation Claymore was a British commando raid on the Norwegian Lofoten Islands during the Second World War. The Lofoten Islands were an important centre for the production of fish oil and glycerine, used in the German war economy. Through naval gunfire and demolition parties, 18,000 tons of shipping were sunk. Perhaps the most significant outcome of the raid was the capture of a set of rotor wheels for an Enigma machine and its code books from the German armed trawler Krebs.”

Al Marj Encampment : “Marj grew around a Turkish fort built in 1842 and now restored. During the colonial dominance of Libya (1913–41), the town was called Barce and was developed as an administrative and market centre and hill resort. During the World War II North African campaign, the 1st Field Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery won a battle for the region of Barce on 5 February 1941. The regiment commemorates this battle by naming the facilities at its base at Enoggera as Barce Lines. From 1942–1943, the town was the capital of British-occupied Cyrenaica.”

There were four new weapons uncovered which you can find the full details of below.

  • Medics are able to revive squad members even if they were taken out by a melee attack from behind
  • Only two trais for the scout commandos grant “unrevivable” kills (Ambush Kill / Stopping Power Headshot)
  • Spotting will play a more essential role as it is (alongside with other general things) taught by a tutorial mission
  • Blinding enemies with flashbangs (Captain) or tear gas (Panzerbüchse 39) are a new gameplay element

Our Take

Battlefield V has been an interesting release. It didn’t do as well as EA and DICE had hoped at launch and while Firestorm brought some unique elements to the table, it hasn’t taken the community by storm either. Adding a competitively ranked, 5 on 5 mode several months post-launch is certainly interesting but we’re not sure how well it will be adopted. That said, we’ll certainly be trying it!
