Battlefield 5 has just gotten its newest update, and it is quite a major one. The update will be available on Xbox One, PC, and PS4. This particular update will be the final one of its kind. This expansion will add nine new weapons, five new gadgets, six new vehicles, three new types of grenades, and two new maps.
As you can see in the patch notes, the first new map, known as Al Marj Encampment, is an infantry-only affair, and it is located in Libya. The notes read that this infantry-only map is a place where players can expect a lot of close-quarter fights and ranged combat, depending purely on their location on the battlefield. Sixty-four players can be accommodated on the map in the Conquest, and Breakthrough mode and additional configurations are available on Team Deathmatch and Squad Contest.
The second map, on the other hand, is a redesigned and expanded Provence, where players are able to explore the farmland and areas all around the outskirts of the surreal town. In other places, new vehicles have been added to the US faction, which benefits from a much-increased number of characters. Similarly, two more soldier characters have been added to the Japanese faction.
Players can also encounter a wide array of gadgets and weapons, such as a new shotgun for the Support class. Assault characters also receive a Pistol Flamethrower, which honestly sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun.
Some small tweaks have also been made to Battlefield 5 in this game. For example, the add-on Grenade Launchers for the M1 Grand and the Tromboncino can now switch between the main ammo type instead of the pistol when the player’s ammo reserve is depleted. Should there be no more primary weapon ammo available, a switch will be made to the pistol. This should ensure the flow of the game.
