Battlefield V Weapon Specialization

Weapon Specialization after Open Beta

Weapon Specializations in Battlefield V are oriented around improving the statistics of a weapon, as well as granting new abilities in the form of Weapon Accessories.

BF5 Weapon Upgrades

The Weapon upgrade system as seen during the Battlefield V Open Beta

The price of weapon upgrades increases with each tier and are priced as follows:

  • 300 Company Coins Logo BFV for Rank 1
  • 450 Company Coins Logo BFV for Rank 2
  • 600 Company Coins Logo BFV for Rank 3
  • 750 Company Coins Logo BFV for Rank 4

The typical paths available are as such:

  • At Ranks 1 and 2, either the "left" or "right" choice can be selected without consequence.
  • At Rank 3, the choice is locked to the same path chosen for Rank 2. For example, if the "left" choice was chosen at Rank 2, the "left" choice is only available at Rank 3.
  • At Rank 4, either the "left" or "right" choice can be selected, regardless of any previous choice.
