Best Weapons For Each Class in Battlefield 1
Battlefield 1 has four different classes to choose from in multiplayer, each with their own perks and equipment. There’s a ton of different guns and weapons to choose from, and it can be tough to pick which one is going to be the best for you. Of course, some of it will come down to personal preference, but we’ll give you a few quick tips on what type of guns tend to work best for each class, and some specific weapons choices as well.
Best Weapons for Assault – The assault class is the up close and personal soldier, storming capture points with heavy hitting weapons and causing as much damage as possible. For this purpose, the class has access to submachine guns and shotguns as their primary weapons. A great tactic to employ as assault is to equip yourself with gas grenades, and a shotgun, so you can run right into battle. If you have access to the Hellfighter shotgun by either pre-ordering the game or buying the Early Enlister Edition, it’s a good choice with some powerful reach and range.
Otherwise the M97 Trench Backbored is a great alternative, as it has some great accuracy for a shotgun. Of course if you’d prefer to go the submachine gun route, the Automatico M19 is a good choice. Like the other weapons, it has a few variations, but generally they each post a pretty hefty magazine and good hip fire accuracy.
Best Weapons for Medic – The Medic’s primary goal is of course to heal and revive allies, so that should almost always be your priority when playing this class. You’ll also have access to some pretty powerful rifles and pistols to protect yourself though. As a Medic, it’d generally be a good idea to either have an explosive grenade or smoke grenade equipped. The explosive can stop a group of attacking enemies or help push an assault for your team, while the smoke might be used to cover your retreat from a bad situation.
In terms of guns, you’ll definitely want a semi-automatic rifle equipped. As Medics are often right up in the heat of action, you’ll want something to get you out of a pinch. The Selbstlader M1916 is a clear choice here, as it has a great rate of fire, combined with stability and range.
