NEW MAP: HELIGOLAND BIGHT

This is Battlefield 1’s quintessential naval map. With its immense scale and focus on vehicular combat, it’s ideal for Conquest Assault, the only game mode available on this map.

This is the first naval battle of the Great War, where the British Royal Marines commenced a surprise attack against the German navy. Attackers speed to the red cliffs and rocky shores to gain ground, where infantry can use large rocks and dunes as cover from battleship shelling. Control Bunker Beach and you’ll have access to a battery cannon to defend against the onslaught. Take cover behind the rocky wave breaker wall to safely engage the enemy beyond the sinking cruiser, as they take a foothold on the nearby Düne island. Finally, assert your dominance in the first ever Battlefield 1 Dreadnought vs. Dreadnought battle

NEW MAP: ZEEBRUGGE

Under the veil of night, British troops reinforce the treacherous raid on the Belgian port of Bruges-Zeebrugge. Join the concentrated battle as the British Royal Marines wrestle to possess the German controlled, concrete mole. Advance past the war-torn breach toward the heavily guarded submarine pen. Utilize the dock openings to gain access and overcome the enemy. Torpedo boats, planes, L-Class Destroyers, Dreadnoughts, and the menacing C-Class Airship battle for control around the port. Be mindful, as infantry soldiers fight back with the anti-aircraft guns placed along the coastal wall and battery cannons that are lining the nearby beach at the base of the mole.

NEW: VEHICLE

The all-new C-Class Airship is equipped with 4 seats and 2 package loadouts. Pilots can deliver an immense payload of artillery and bombs, as they navigate the skies. Front gunners are equipped with a 76mm cannon, while rear gunners provide support with a 20mm Autocannon. Top gunners offer anti-aircraft protection with a mounted AA gun on the top of the vessel. Like tanks and the new L-Class Destroyer, pilots can self-repair the C-Class Airship to maintain dominance in the sky.

NEW: UNIFORMS

Don the characteristic blue uniforms of the British Empire’s elite naval troops, the admirable Royal Marines.

NEW: IMPROVED WEAPON BALANCE

With the addition of new weapons from each expansion pack and the growing community of skilled players, we found it necessary to rebalance the weapons to increase the pacing of combat and balance the loadout options among and between the various classes in Battlefield 1.

These changes are far-reaching, across the breadth of Battlefield 1 weapons, which may be difficult to feel when trying them out for the first time.  There are a lot of changes, which may not be noticeable immediately and may only become more apparent with time.  Players should find a faster time-to-kill (TTK), be more capable in out-numbered scenarios, and find greater distinction between different weapons and weapon types.

The following summaries detail how these changes will alter the encounters at the ideal engagement ranges:

Assault vs Medic

  • Medic remains superior at any distance outside of very close range
  • The overall decrease in TTK at close range for Assault weapons should ensure their superiority at ideal engagement range

Support

  • The biggest difference here is that Support weapons will be slower to get on target at close range, pushing the engagement slightly more in favor of the Assault than it already was
  • At longer distances the Support LMGs remain far superior to the Assault SMGs and shotguns

Scout

  • These encounters remain mostly unchanged
  • These classes are opposite extremes; the winner of the engagement will usually come down to range

Medic vs Support

  • The main change here is in how the Medic approaches an LMG. Previously the SLRs were like LMGs in terms of raw TTK, meaning it was often possible to outshoot one head to head. With the changes this is more dangerous, as the LMG will be more likely to kill the Medic before he can reach cover to heal
  • LMG accuracy at close range is weaker than before however, plus Medic rifles have improved range, leaving the medic with several options of approach – take potshots at the Support from longer distances, or attack from unexpected angles to exploit the LMG weakness when not already in ADS or on a bipod

Scout

  • Medics are slightly more accurate at longer distances and are therefore an increased threat to Scouts than previously
  • Otherwise these encounters remain unchanged

Support vs Scout

  • Support is slightly more dangerous at long range than before. There is therefore increased pressure on the Scout to score a one hit kill from an unexpected location before the Support can return fire
  • Otherwise these encounters remain unchanged

With regards to weapon family specific changes, you will see an overall reduction in the number of bullets required to kill a target at a weapons ideal engagement range, along with some general improvements to their handling:

Shotguns

  • Shotguns remain the strongest close-range weapon with generally very poor ranged performance (except for the “Slug” variants)
  • They have suffered from inconsistency due to how shotgun pellets work, which we’ve improved by reducing how much randomness plays a part in the shotgun dispersion.  All shotguns now fire 12 pellets.  The dispersion is now broken down into 12 sectors, 6 in an inner circle and 6 in an outer ring.  Each sector will contain 1 pellet.  This ensures that all 12 pellets are more evenly spread over the dispersion cone, and prevents all the pellets from bunching up in one area, which could cause lucky one hit kills at longer distances, or inversely result in a complete miss.

Sub Machine Guns – SMGs

  • SMGs remain very strong close-range weapons, second only to Shotguns
  • High bullet damage drop-off and large spread make them ineffective at longer distances than all other weapons, with the exception of Shotguns
  • The variance in raw TTK of the SMGs has been reduced, reducing the benefit of that advantage on specific SMGs (such as the Hellriegel and Automatico) and increasing the options available to Assault players

Light Machine Guns – LMGs

  • LMGs offer the most firepower, but at the cost of handling and mobility
  • The strongest weapon at medium range when ready for a fight
  • If caught off guard however their poor hip-fire and high spread mechanics put them at a disadvantage

Self-Loading Rifles – SLRs

  • The most flexible weapon
  • Slightly weaker in terms of TTK than most other weapons but with advantages over all others in some area
    • Much better ranged performance than SMGs and shotguns
    • Better handling and can get on target accurately faster than LMGs
    • More effective at closer ranges than bolt actions

Bolt Actions

  • Bolt actions offer one hit kills at longer ranges
  • They have very low fire rates however which makes them very weak up close
  • These are the least changed weapon type

Other Changes in Battlefield 1 Update 1.18 Patch Notes

PLAYER PROGRESSION

  • Vehicle damage performed by K Bullets fired from the Martini-Henry sniper rifle are now properly tracked for the Overwatch Service Assignment.
  • Reduced the requirements of the Ribbon of Justice from 5 kills in a round to 2.

UI & HUD

  • The player outlines now comply with the colorblind settings.

  • Players can customize the size and opacity of world icons in the gameplay options.
  • Hit indicators can be customized with different colors for critical hit kills.

WEAPONS, VEHICLES, & GADGETS

Numerous weapon balance tweaks. Here’s a short list of some noteworthy changes among many more:

  • Slightly tweaked the damage models for several Medic rifles:
    • Farquhar-Hill damage drop off started at 34 but now is 46.33 meters.
    • Farquhar-Hill damage drop off ended at 52 but now is 59 meters.
    • M1907 SL damage drop off ended at 55.6 but now is 60 meters.
    • Autoloading 8.25 damage drop off started at 19.5 but now is 16 meters.
    • Autoloading 8.25 damage drop off ended at 40 but now is 45 meters.
    • RSC 1917 vertical recoil has been adjusted from 1.8 to 1.5 degrees.
    • RSC 1917 horizontal recoil has been adjusted from 2.2 to 1.8 degrees.
    • RSC 1917 rate of fire has been adjusted from 163 to 179.9 bullets per minute.
    • Increased the 3-hit kill range of the Cei-Rigotti by 10 meters.

Continued to tune automatic weapons:

  • Adjusted the spread for LMGs.
  • LMGs now have slower zoom-in speeds to further differentiate them from SMGs
  • LMGs and SMGs now have slightly increased vertical recoil.
  • The vertical recoil bonus on the Storm variants for SMGs and LMGs have been reduced slightly.
  • The SMG 08/18 Optical’s first shot spread multiplier has been reduced.
  • LMG bipods will now remove spread increase while firing entirely when mounted with a lower reduction in horizontal recoil.
    • Overall this change makes heavy MGs with high first shot spread multipliers benefit slightly more from the bipod, while high fire rate LMGs with high horizontal recoil will receive less benefit.
  • Increased the 2-hit kill range of the Russian 1895 Trench from 47 to 70 meters.
  • Increased one hit kill headshot range of the Russian 1895 Trench from 41 to 64 meters.
  • Cavalry Russian 1895 2-hit kill range has increased to 90 meters.
  • Cavalry Russian 1895 one hit kill headshot range increased to 84 meters.

    • Reduced the inner blast radius of the Martini- Henry grenade launcher, on the Infiltrator Elite Class, from 2 to 1 meter.
    • Battlefield 1 update 1.18 fixed a bug where the Martini-Henry grenade launcher did not use its arm time, resulting in higher than intended damage.
    • Reduced the ammunition count of the Martini-Henry grenade launcher from 21 to 11.
    • Battlefield 1.18 reduced the reload threshold for the Martini-Henry grenade launcher.
    • Fixed a bug that allowed the Bristol Attack plane and Ilya Muromets Heavy Bomber to utilize weapons from multiple packages.
    • Battlefield 1 1.18 update increased the mine removal radius for the A7V Heavy Tank.
    • Greatly improved the reliability of the AA guns when firing against bombers from certain angles.
    • AT Rocket Gun, and similar weapons, can now be fired from the passenger seat of vehicles.

    • AT Mine radius has been adjusted to 2 meters.
    • Tripwire Mine – HE deals twice as much damage to sprinting players.
