Do you think the Villar Perosa will be overpowered?

With it having the firepower of two Automatico M1918 submachine guns, I cannot see any other weapon that could match it in close quarters. It has a rate of fire at 1800 rounds per minute with its magazine capacity being a total of 50 combined.

From the leaked footage on Twitch by Theoddkorean, it seems like that one cannot aim down sights with the weapon and the zoom will be similar to the mechanic from "Counter-Strike" in that your field of view is stretched forward. However, its hipfire is nothing to sneeze at, as one can take down an opponent easily with just one short burst from the Villar Perosa at approximately 30 metres. Even an Elite Class could be killed quickly, with the Flame Trooper taking just one second or so at close range to gun down. Sure the reload of the weapon is relatively slow, but if you just think of the gun as a high rate of fire light machine gun fed via a belt with excellent hipfire, then that time is actually quite reasonable considering it is approximately the same as that of the MG15 N.A.

All this coupled together makes the Villar Perosa somewhat overpowered as a multiplayer weapon in my opinion if it does indeed appear. The downsides are really not all that much and the upsides make it unbeatable up to medium range. I realize that the title is a loaded question after all I have said, but this weapon will definitely be more capable than the FAMAS with 30 rounds ever was in "Battlefield 3".

Edit: Just realized that this is my 100th post. Here is to 100 more.

What is it supposed to be? A gadget? A pick-up? Or a regular weapon for a class?

It has its own Service Star and Dog Tag according to BleedingUranium,so it will definitely appear in the multiplayer in one way or another as either a primary weapon or a gadget. Considering only Elite Classes are pickups in "Battlefield 1", I doubt this particular gun will be one.

Nevertheless, it will be a weapon available in the multiplayer. Someone ought to be able to record the gameplay with the Villar Perosa if Theoddkorean streams again tomorrow for everyone to see just how effective it is.

By the way, the War Story "Avanti Savoia!" was not too shabby. Hopefully you will be pleased by its portrayal of Italians in the First World War!

Apparently someone streamed gameplay from a copy they got ahold of early, I didn't see it myself.

Unless things are different in BF1's gameplay, the Villar Perosa is 1500rpm and 25 rounds for each gun, so 3000rpm and 50 rounds total. We know we're getting more Elite classes after launch, so I'd bet this is going to be for one of them. I could see it being a primary if they're crazy enough to attempt it, but Elite makes the most sense to me. We'll see I guess.

That is even crazier than I originally thought. For someone not used to playing on a console and did not shoot with the thought of ammo conservation, Theoddkorean was easily able to down four enemies with those 50 rounds before reloading in close quarter combat. I cannot imagine just how effective it would be with someone who tap fired at the helm. Particularly if the Sentry Elite Class cannot withstand 50 bullets like the Flame Trooper Elite Class, then I could see one being eliminated just as quickly and easily by the Villar Perosa.

Is there a Service Star or a Dog Tag for the Flamethrower that corresponds for weapons from the Elite Classes also having them?

I do believe the three heavy class weapons had service stars and such, yes.

It seems pretty crazy to give it a 3000 rpm firerate. With 50 rounds that would mean just a single second of holding down the trigger. At this point it's just a shotgun, or a WW1 version of the metal storm from Final Stand: throw a pound of lead down range and hope it's enough to kill whatever is standing in its way, 'cause you're reloading no matter what after letting go of that trigger.
