I have made an update which adds the new weapons to the site, and hopefully it will be pushed inside day or two.



Thank you for the update. I was looking at the stats for the preorder weapons and noticed that recoil values for the BAR M1918A2 seems off. I know you get the values directly from the files, but 0.028 (yes, 28 thousandths) for horizontal recoil. That is absurdly low as well as out of pattern compared to the other BAR variants. The vertical recoil is much higher as well (.8 versus 0.55). I know some people mentioned that the BAR A2 seemed to kick vertically a lot so that fits with that greater vertical recoil value, but that horizontal value has got to the the lowest in BF history.

Hmm I am being told BAR M1918A2 has two firemodes: One with higher firerate (600rpm) and one with lower fire rate (the one shown on site, ~359rpm). Maybe this is the part where scripts got confused?
Links to users' thread list who have made analytical/statistical/mathematical/cool posts on Symthic:
  • 3VerstsNorth - Analysis of game mechanics in BF4 (tickrates, effects of tickrate, etc)
  • leptis - Analysis of shotguns, recoil, recoil control and air drag.
  • Veritable - Scoring of BF4/BF1 firearms in terms of usability, firing and other mechanics.
  • Miffyli - Random statistical analysis of BF4 battlereports/players and kill-distances. (list is cluttered with other threads).
Sorry if your name wasn't on the list, I honestly can't recall all names : ( . Nudge me if you want to be included

Yes, that is correct: The BAR M1918A2 has two firemodes. The 359 RPM is the default and the 600 RPM is the alternate firemode. I'm pretty sure that the firemodes share the same recoil/spread values, so but I'm sure having two distinct ROF firemodes makes the file more complicated.

Oh you can toggle the firemodes?

That's really cool.

Yes, just like you can switch other weapons from full auto to single shot, and vice versa.

It’s a battlefield V preorder bonus, like the BAR Factory and Thompson Factory. There are five, and they are not yet linked on Symthic. Those three are pretty good.

Okay, I was confused because I thought it was was for preorder people and premium people...

So wait -- Premium players can't even get a taste? What a ripoff... :thumbdown:

A lot of people are speculating that these preoder guys will be available to everyone (not just premium players) when the June update drops. The thinking is that the preorder bonus listed something about "early access" to these weapons. So, hopefully they are right and we get these weapons in a few weeks.

I hope so. I don't really have the money to preorder right now.

I doubt it - a lot of people who did pre-order for the weapons (and probably would have bought BFV anyway) would be awfully salty.

Welp, I caved when I saw a discount for ordering it through the BF1 screen itself.

What's everyone's opinions on the new guns for those that have them? I like the Degtyarev and the Mosin the most so far.
