"Pictured: the automatic extractor in action. Not pictured: Antigravity field generator."
— about the mid-air casings ejected from the MP412 REX in BF3
"Vladimir uses his MP-443 as one of Solomon's men demonstrates how not to steal a car stereo."
— about an attacker who ends up through the windshield with his hand towards the stereo
"Dmitri Mayakovsky holds his MP-443 on Blackburn as he tries to blame everything on a fire extinguisher."
— about Dima berating the actions of "this piece of shit right there" while staring elsewhere than Kaffarov
"The 20-round magazine for the MP7A1 frequently glitches and fails to appear during the campaign; here in "The Great Destroyer" Blackburn reloads one with a large flash suppressor, IRNV scope and laser pointer... whereas earlier he just told his vanilla one to imagine it was full of bullets that were this big."
— issues that make it seem like you're making some kind of gesture at the magwell with your empty hand
"Blackburn holds an AK-74M equipped with a PSO-1 scope during "Operation Swordbreaker." Weapons on the ground do not show their attachments or have text signifying what they have attached, meaning occasionally picking up a boring-looking vanilla weapon will result in the player character producing Excalibur as here."
""MG36" on the customization menu. Note the 12x sniper scope attached, in case you feel the need to give suppressive fire from 1000+ meters."
— about an attachment that isn't really intuitive to the light machine gun role
"Dmitri Mayakovsky discovers a QJY-88 with the rare and for some reason unpopular linoleum-plated finish."
— about finding a Type 88 LMG with a non-textured (whitish) third-person model
"As usual for an FPS protagonist, Blackburn is of the "pick a random notch and use it like a regular iron sight" school of leaf sight use."
— about using the leaf sight of the M320 grenade launcher as if it were a conventional iron sight
"The player ponders the idea of putting AT mines inside a tire and rolling them toward a tank."
— about standing in front of a pile of tires and holding the similarly shaped M15 AT Mine
List of all portable weapons in the series
Note: weapons exclusive to Battlefield Heroes aren't included. Additionally, weapons highlighted in green are variants that are already part of other weapon pages.
Also note that many games have "general" classes of weapons (sidearms, assault rifles, machine guns, sniper rifles), while other have specific ones (pistols/heavy pistols/revolvers/machine pistols, pistol carbines/bolt-action carbines/assault rifles/battle rifles, bolt-action rifles/semi-auto sniper rifles/anti-materiel rifles, light machine guns/medium machine guns). I've chosen to list the specific classes, and regarding the weapons that are exclusive to games with general classes, I've put them in the specific classes according to what they would be in reality (for example, BF Vietnam doesn't have a "carbines" class, which resulted in the game categorizing the CAR-15 as an "assault rifle", but in my list I'm putting it in the carbines section).
(Note that the Johnson LMG, Breda Modello 30, and DP are actually light machine guns, but since they've been only classed as assault rifles in-game, I unfortunately have to list them here. I also have to list the Breda M1935 PG and the M2 Carbine here, since their relevant classes (battle rifle & carbine respectively) are already used for other weapons in Battlefield V.)
(As a small note: among those self-loading rifles, the Autoloading 8, M1907 SL, Gewehr 1-5, Type-56, Fedorov Avtomat, and Fedorov-Degtyarev are the only ones that are not technically battle rifles. BF Vietnam lists the Type-56 as a battle rifle, but it's wrong.)
(The ones highlighted in orange are general-purpose machine guns; note that these include the M60E4 and M60-ULT. As for the ones highlighted in aqua, they are heavy machine guns. Also note that the real S2-200 is an LMG, but in-game it is classed as a medium MG, so I have to list it here.)
