Overview BF4 Hardline

"The AWM is a bolt action sniper rifle that has seen service around the world in the hands of law enforcement. This rifle fires a hard-hitting round and long distances very accurately."

— In-game description

The AWM is a sniper rifle featured in Battlefield Hardline, exclusive to the Criminal Professional. It is a high damage rifle with high accuracy, but has the smallest default magazine size along with the .300 Knockout at five rounds and somewhat slow reload compared to the other rifles.



  • The AWM was one of a handful of weapons present in Hardline's June beta files in an unfinished state, but could be equipped if the beta's files were modified to allow their use.[1] Since PunkBuster was not used during the beta, the weapons could be used online in this fashion.
  • In this state, the weapon was named the L96A1 and its iron sights were untextured. It was properly renamed some point after the beta.
