Yeah, I went ahead and picked it up; Green Man Gaming.

Graphics are outstanding; Moder and I played a few campaigns; crazy!!

The Zeppelin is really nice, dropping bombs and machine gunning those below; The Anti-Air guns work very well.

The maps so far are really well done and the Armour train shows up and is pretty menacing looking.
too...

They have been banning players as well; I didn't see anything thing that looked iffy but, I was just trying to stay alive.

So far it's enjoyable other than the dying part...

Just curious: Who else bought and is playing BF1?

So far I played with Sidewinder, Druzin and Doonerz. I think Missile bought it as well but I haven't seen him in-game yet.

The game is a ton of fun compared to BF4 but as usual, you kinda have to be in a functioning squad or it gets frustrating real quick. Unless the whole sniper-camping thing is your cup of tea...

I haven't noticed as many of those; played operations and I think it will be one of the best game play types; we were taking the objectives until the other side launched a wicked counter-attack and we lost the last one!

Battlefield 1 – best class loadouts for Assault, Medic, Support, Scout

Assault Class: Gas Shredder

A shotgun of your choice (M97, Model 10-A, or Hellfighter will work) + Gas Grenades + P08 Pistol.

This is one of the most overpowered combos in Battlefield 1 right now. Basically, the point of this setup is to overwhelm your enemies with gas clouds so they either move away, or put on gas masks.

Equipping gas masks means they won’t be able to aim down sights, instantly putting them at a disadvantage. You don’t need to ADS with shotguns to be effective, however, which means you’re going to have a golden opportunity of taking out a few of them before they known what hit ’em. Of course, you will need to equip a gas mask yourself, but like we explained, when you’re using a shotgun, it doesn’t matter.

The P08 pistol is one of the best in hip fire accuracy. It does less damage than the M1911, but works better in close-quarter situations. Given that you’ll be running into rooms full of enemies, your main weapon will run out and you’re going to need a trusty sidearm to take out the few enemies remaining before stopping to reload.

You can also replace the shotgun in this build with the Automatico M1918 Trench. This SMG has amazing hip fire accuracy, and an incredibly high rate-of-fire, making it a true shredder in CQC. Watch out, though, as it does run out of ammo pretty quickly.

Assault Class: Armour Killer

The MP18 Trench + M1911 + AT Rocket Gun + Dynamite + Light Anti-Tank Grenade.

The main function of the Assault is to take out armour. Assault is, without a doubt, the single most dangerous threat facing anyone in armoured vehicles, and this loadout intends to make use of that.

The MP18 Trench is one of the early unlocks for the Assault, and is overall among the best weapons for the class. It works great in close range, which is where you’re mostly going to be with this setup.

The rest of the gadgets are designed to help you focus solely on taking out armour. It’s also a good idea to save this preset in-game and switch to it when you really start seeing enemy armour dominate.

Although you won’t have regular grenades with this, the other two you have (and the Dynamite) can all be used to kill infantry just fine should the need arise.

Medic Class: Sensible Healer

M1907 SL Sweeper + M1911 + Medic Pouch + Syringe.


This loadout is made for those looking to win games as Medics. Being a good Medic means you’re constantly on the front lines risking your life to revive and heal others, and occasionally dealing with incoming threats.

The Medical Pouch and Syringe are perfect for that goal, and the M1907 SL Sweeper is a solid weapon that you can fire in full-auto and not lose much accuracy. Constantly tending to the needs of your teammates is one of the best feelings in any Battlefield game, and you’ll witness first-hand what it’s like to turn matches around.

We recommend the M1911 as a sidearm because of its slight advantage at range, but that’s left to your preference.

Medic Class: Long-range Support

Mondragon Sniper + M1911 + Medical Pouch + Rifle Grenade + Smoke Grenade.


If you prefer to stay back a bit but still want to support your team, this loadout gives you access to a solid long-range rifle and the ability to suppress faraway targets and harass snipers.

The bandages will get you back to full health quickly when you take damage, but the real killers here are the Smoke and Rifle Grenades.

The Smoke Grenade is great on Rush and Operations, or really in any situation where you need to either render enemy sharpshooters useless for a few seconds, or to advance on well-defended front lines, without painfully witnessing your teammates get picked off one by one.

You can throw one of these to help the squad move forward, while you stay further back and cover them. The Rifle-mounted Grenade is perfect for suppressing enemy snipers or anyone taking cover you can’t otherwise shoot.

Support Class: Front Lines Assaulter

Madsen MG Storm + P08 Pistol + Ammo Crate + Limpet Charge.


The Support Class is perhaps one of the hardest classes to get to grips with thanks to its arsenal of unconventional weapons. This loadout, however, presents the closest thing we have to Assault Rifle-levels of accuracy and utility.

The Madsen MG Storm is an incredibly accurate LMG with more than enough bullets to get the job done. You can use it at close and medium ranges without the need to hold the trigger for long to gain accuracy. The P08 is a great CQC pistol as well, and together with the Madsen Storm forms a decent BF4-style combo.

You and your teammates are going to need a constant supply of ammo, obviously, which is where the Ammo Crate comes in. Unlike the Pouch, the Crate supplies explosives and can give out ammo to multiple teammates at once.

Generally speaking, you won’t be running and gunning with this setup, so it’s best to sit tight for a few seconds every time you get the chance, throw the Crate down and help keep teammates at the front well-supplied.

In case you need to breach locked doors, or take out armour, the Limpet Charge will get the job done. Ran out? No problem, just resupply!

Support Class: Suppressive Shell Shocker

Lewis Gun Suppressive + M1911 + Ammo Crate + Mortar Air.


This particular loadout is made for people new to the Support class, and anyone who wishes to play more of a support role rather than an aggressive one. This Lewis Gun variant is perfect for suppressing enemies and has enough bullets to keep them that way for a while, effectively preventing them from returning fire.

Since you won’t be seeing much action, the Mortar Air is another way you can help out your teammates. The Mortar is incredibly powerful right now in the game, not to mention it’s pretty easy to use. Just place one down, aim and land your shells in clusters of enemies for maximum damage.

You can switch to the HE Mortar variant if you need to take out an Armoured Train or vehicle. Mortars also resupply relatively quickly, which you’ll be able to do thanks to your big Ammo Crate.

Scout Class: Ultimate Sniper

SMLE MK3 Marksman + P08 + Flare Gun Spot + Sniper Shield.


Look, we’re not judging, and sometimes the situation calls for a stationary sniper in Battlefield 1. It doesn’t help the team that much, but if you have to do it, this loadout is among the best you can run with.

The SMLE MK3 Marksman is one of the best snipers in the game, and this variant comes with a decent scope for proper long-range dominance. Couple it with the Sniper Shield, and you’ll be harder to hit when going prone, for an ultra-low profile.

You also need the Flare Gun Spot to reveal enemies on the map for your benefit, as well as that of your teammates. The Flare Gun is much more useful with this setup than K-bullets, seeing as you will be seeing very little armour.

You can replace the Shield with the Decory for maximum trolling, or if you want to change sniping positions without altering the enemy team.

Scout Class: Objective Pusher

SMLE MK3 Infantry + P08 + Flare Gun Spot + Trench Periscope.


This setup is made for the brave few who can hold their own in a fight with a sniper rifle, but prefer to be near the action than far away on a hill.

The SMLE MK3 variant is perfect for close-quarter combat with its high rate-of-fire. You can’t put a scope on this one, but iron sights are clear enough for the ranges you’ll be engaging at that it doesn’t really matter.

The Flare Gun means your squad is always aware of campers defending the point, especially helpful when said point is contested and you can’t quite figure out where the last couple of enemies are hiding.

The Trench Periscope can be used on your way to capture objectives to identify threats early for your team. It’s also a great way of checking if someone is coming to take the point from you in Operations when your squad is left behind defending it.

If you reach level 10 with the Scout, you can unlock the Marini Henry sniper. It’s one of the best weapons in the game, but you’ll have to reload after every kill. The Marini Henry is satisfying to use, but won’t quite it cut it if you’re looking to maximise your performance.

I don't know who wrote this but, Here we go with "The most overpowered weapon whine again". Gas attacks? Check. Really happened in WW1; that's what a gas mask is for and by the way it doesn't interfere with down sighting; If it is a concern don't put mask on and oh wait; you will die within seconds! It is very easy to put on and take off as well.

All these weapons are primitive by today's standards; flintlocks if you will. Some work better than other is most cases either up close in (again), it is trench warfare after all; the planes? for all intense purposes nothing more than paper and wood.

You can change weapons when you get enough war bonds for taking flags or other things;that's how you get better weapon to have in your inventory.

There are many outstanding stationary weapons to use as well, I love the Anti-Aircraft gun, rapid fire and deadly; Field pieces are another favorite too.

Flame throwers are crazy in this game.

The game currently as far Moder and I have been able to determine is in Vanilla mode (for obvious reasons) with a hardcore and custom set-up coming soon.

I think the best mode is called "Operations" which is a series of maps you move from one end to the other to take to win.
You should hear and see when the teams do the fixed bayonet charges with the whistles, yelling and screaming.

Game hasn't lagged out, glitched so far (for me); I did have a strange problem last night with my mouse but, that could be software related on my end.

They still have bug in Origin but, the game itself seems pretty smooth and I have tried both ULTRA and HIGH setting across the board and noticed very little difference in play so, I left it on ULTRA.


BF4 this isn't; no comparison what so ever.

Enjoy

WAAAA, that was my first reaction until I read the whole article. If you read it closely they are not whining about the gas attack being overpowered, it's all about the Gas Shredder combo and how to use it and if done right, how lethal it can be and why. They are simply, (in their view) stating a fact which sounds very logical to me.
This is one of the most overpowered combos in Battlefield 1 right now. Basically, the point of this setup is to overwhelm your enemies with gas clouds so they either move away, or put on gas masks.


If you carefully read the rest of the statement you will learn why they believe it to be true.

I read it; played it and it does work just like it did in real life; I'm sure somebody will start the Behemoth/Zeppelin/ etc as being overpowered. I figure any weapon you can take other out with rapidly is a good thing!
