In other words, Battlefield 5 features just about every gun, vehicle and piece of equipment you'd expect to find in a World War II game. One super-obvious omission here, however, is the iconic M1 Garand semi-automatic rifle that's been a staple of World War II shooters since the '90s. Speaking to its exclusion and the weapon roster as a whole, DICE Multiplayer Producer David Sirland suggested this particular weapon set is best balanced for Battlefield 5's enhanced gun customization features and is focused on the early months of the war. In other words, those missing favorites could be featured later on in the game's Tides of War service-based campaign.

Battlefield 5 comes to Xbox One, PS4 and PC Nov. 20. This is the list of weapons and vehicles available at launch.
