The Tank Hunter is an Elite Kit featured in Battlefield 1.[1]

The kit is obtained via a wooden crate found in fixed locations on certain maps, similar to Battle Pickups from Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline.

As the name suggests, the kit is primarily intended to counter enemy armor and other ground vehicles. Equipped with a Tankgewehr M1918, a high-velocity, single-shot rifle, this kit is centered around anti-armor and can critically damage vehicles. The Tank Hunter also carries a Sawed-Off Shotgun, a Trench Periscope, two Anti-Tank Grenades, and a common club.

The Tank Hunter carries light armor, protecting the user from around 65% of small arms fire damage (around half protection as that of the Sentry). The Tank Hunter also wears a set of respirator and goggles, permanently giving him the effects of wearing a Gas Mask without obstructed peripheral vision and not restricting the ability to aim down sights.

  • During the Open Beta, the Tank Hunter was equipped with an "M1911 Silencer". The weapon did not seem to have an attached suppressor, and so did not actually silence the weapon. This was replaced with the Sawed-Off Shotgun by release. The M1911 Silencer appears in Singleplayer and originally as a DICE exclusive weapon in Multiplayer before being added in the June 2018 patch.
  • The Tank Hunter wears a Cover's Automatic Respirator and Gas Goggles.[2]
  • Like the Flame trooper, Central powers' tank hunters always wear a trench coat.
