Not to be confused with the Type 85 HMG
W85HMG aka QJC-88

QJC-88 vehicle machine gun in reality, which is based on the W-85 Heavy machine gun

The QJC-88 or W85 is a heavy machine gun designed in China for the People's Liberation Army. It is a further improved version of Type 54 heavy machine gun, and it was based upon the Russian DShK. The design of W85 series are heavily influenced by the Russian DShK. Despite having a similar name, it is unrelated to the Type 85 HMG.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat[]

The W85 HMG is a weapon featured in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat as a stationary turret, as well as being mounted on multiple Chinese vehicles including the gunner position of the Type 98, the gunner seat of the Chinese version of the FAV, and the two side gunner seats of the WZ-9. The weapon performs identically to the M2 Browning, with a decent fire rate and power, as well as 1000 rounds before needing to reload.

Battlefield 4[]

In Battlefield 4, the W85 appears as the Type 85 HMG, and is used as the secondary weapon of Type 99 Main Battle Tank, as well as being the part of the remote weapon station on ZFB05 and the ZBD-09. It performs identically to the USMC M2 Browning, the Russian KORD, and another Chinese HMG QJZ-89. The driver of an Type 99 Main Battle Tank can equip the Type 85 HMG via the Coaxial HMG specialization.



  • Despite being called W85, the machine gun model in Battlefield 2: Modern Combat is clearly inspired by Chinese Type 85 HMG, a similarly named, yet externally and mechanically different weapon that appeared in Battlefield 2.
  • Yet in Battlefield 4, the so-called Type 85 HMG is clearly modeled after the W85 heavy machine gun (QJC-88).
