Wine Bottle IRL

Vintage 1918 Wine Bottles

A Bottle is a container, typically made from glass or plastic, with a neck that is narrower than the body and mouth. Bottles generally contain liquids such as soda, alcohol, etc. Wine is one such beverage that has been produced for thousands of years. Due to the availability of bottles, they are common forms of weapons, especially at bars or pubs where alcohol is served. Glassing refers to a physical attack using a glass or bottle as a weapon. The most common method of glassing involves the attacker smashing an intact glass in the face of the victim. However the glass may be smashed before the attack, and then gripped by the remaining base of the glass or neck of the bottle with the broken shards protruding outwards. Common injuries resulting from glassings are heavy blood loss, permanent scarring, disfigurement, loss of sight and potentially death.[1][2]

This item has a Codex entry: Alcohol In The Trenches
"A good year...careful not to break it."

— In-game Description

The Wine Bottle is a Battle Pickup featured in Battlefield 1, introduced in the Battlefield 1: Apocalypse expansion. Similar to the hidden Cavalry Sword located on Rupture, the Wine Bottle must be picked up from specific locations on the battlefield in order to be used. They are capable of killing an opponent in a single swing, after which it will break and be removed from the player's loadout. After picking up the Wine Bottle, the player may not switch weapons, deploy gadgets or enter vehicles without losing it.

Killing a single player with the Wine Bottle will unlock the Codex Entry Alcohol In The Trenches. Killing five players will unlock the Broken Bottle melee weapon. After obtaining a kill towards the assignment, the assignment ticker states the number of kills out of five, instructing the player to "display a reckless disregard for the finer things in life."


The Wine Bottle can be found on the maps Caporetto, Passchendaele and River Somme. It will spawn at these locations at the beginning of a round and not respawn once picked up by a player.
