Best Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Battlefield 2042 Guns List
The list of Battlefield 2042 weapons is extensive and continues to expand as we get closer to the game’s full release. Battlefield 2042 will feature all sorts of modern-day weapons for use in the world of 2042, including some fan favourites. Below, you can find the entire list of all confirmed Battlefield 2042 guns and weapons.
Battlefield 2042 Weapons List
The Battlefield 2042 beta showed off a few of these guns and weapons, but the full game will include many more. Also, keep in mind that there may be more Battlefield 2042 weapons that we don't yet know about. These mystery guns could release at the game’s launch on November 19 or be saved for some time post-release.
It’s important to note that many, if not all, of the weapons on this list will have different names within Battlefield 2042. This is because EA and DICE do not have the licensing rights for these weapons. Therefore, they must give them a different name to avoid being sued for copyright infringement. For example, the Kriss Vector is called the K30 in-game. This SMG looks and acts like the iconic Kriss Vector, it just has a different in-game name.
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Assault Rifles
Battlefield 2042 assault rifles (ARs) serve as great all-around starter weapons. The MCX Spear, known in-game as the M5A3, is a perfect example. This AR has a solid rate-of-fire, decent range, and easy to control recoil. Additionally, it can bounce between fully automatic and single-fire mode with the tap of a button.
These Battlefield 2042 assault rifles are versatile and can be fitted with attachments to enhance their abilities in different combat scenarios. Below are all of the assault rifles confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- SCAR Mk17
- MCX Spear
- NBR / NBR 1
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: SMGs
Players that like to get right up close into the action will gravitate toward the Battlefield 2042 SMGs. At launch, we have an exciting cast of SMGs featuring some of the more iconic gun models of the day and age. SMGs will likely be prominent in the game’s rumoured Battlefield 2042 battle royale, as mobility and silenced gunfire will be critical to survival.
Below are all of the SMGs confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- PP-19 Bizon
- Kriss Vector
- SMG 45
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: DMRs
Not quite a sniper rifle, but not an assault rifle either, DMRs are a sort of hybrid weapon best fit for mid to long-range combat. DMRs are a great choice for players that want to be effective at range without the bulkiness of a sniper scope. DMRs are also much more viable close-range than their sniper rifle counterparts.
Below are all of the DMRs confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- Kel-Tec CMR-30
- Chukavin SVCH
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: LMGs
Not traditionally a fan-favourite weapon class, LMGs serve their purpose in Battlefield 2042. LMGs come equipped with high-capacity magazines and bullets that pack a punch. Paired with their high rates of fire, LMGs are deadly in the right hands. Battlefield LMGs are held back by their lack of mobility, long reload times, and somewhat difficult to control recoil.
The KAC LWAMG, also known in-game as the LCMG, is probably the best of the bunch. This gun was a force to be reckoned with in the Battlefield 2042 beta. And to top it all off, the KAC LWAMG can be fitted with anti-material rounds that allow the user to take down enemy vehicles with ease.
Below are all of the LMGs confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- MGA SAW K
- PKP Pecheneg
- KAC LWAMG
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Shotguns
With the grand size of the Battlefield 2042 maps, shotguns are more of a niche weapon class. Shotgun users will struggle to close the distance on assault rifle, sniper rifle, and DMR users while SMGs and LMGs will also compete for dominance at close range. Shotguns are best fit for a run-and-gun playstyle or for camping objective points.
Below are all of the shotguns confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- Crye Six12
- Remington 870MCS
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Bolt Action Sniper Rifles
The Battlefield franchise has always been a haven for snipers, and that won’t change in Battlefield 2042. At launch, Battlefield 2042 will have a selection of four different bolt action sniper rifles to choose from. Snipers will be one-shot kills to the head and occasionally the torso area, while hits to limbs and extremities will leave your opponents standing upright. Sniper rifles are absolutely deadly in a marksman’s hands but they are a liability at close range.
Below are all of the bolt action sniper rifles confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- TTS Xceed
- TRG M10
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Lever-Action Rifles
Battlefield 2042 is a modern shooter with modern weapons, so lever-action rifles will be few and far between. However, Battlefield 2042 will feature one lever-action rifle at launch. We don’t know yet how viable this gun will be, but it’s sure to be a fun one to use.
Below are all of the lever-action rifles confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- Marlin 45 70
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Miscellaneous
Looking for a challenge? Tired of the standard Battlefield 2042 firearms? Look no further than the miscellaneous weapon category. At launch, Battlefield 2042 will feature a crossbow that players can take out onto the battlefield. The chances of this crossbow becoming meta are slim, but there's no doubt kills with it will be extremely satisfying.
Below are all of the miscellaneous weapons confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- Cobra R9 Crossbow
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Sidearms
Everyone focuses on the primary weapons, but sidearms can keep you alive in a pinch. At launch, all five of the available sidearms will be pistols. You'll never want to go into battle with one of these as your main weapon, but these Battlefield 2042 secondaries can be a great tool in sticky situations.
Below are all of the sidearms confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- Flux Defense MP17
- Sig Sauer M17
- Taurus 44
- Glock 17
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Melee
Finally, we have the Battlefield 2042 melee weapons. It may surprise some to see that the game will feature eight different melee weapons on launch. These Battlefield 2042 melee weapons probably won’t be much different from one another stat-wise. It’s more likely that the Battlefield 2042 specialists will each come with a different melee weapon as a signature of their loadouts.
Below are all of the melee weapons confirmed to exist in Battlefield 2042:
- BF1 Hatchet
- Dice Dev Knife
- Santa Muerte Cane Sword
- Skeletonized Knife
- Survival Knife
- Tactical Folding Knife
Battlefield 2042 Weapons: Battlefield Portal
One of the new exciting additions to Battlefield 2042 is Battlefield Portal. Battlefield Portal is a sandbox game creator where Battlefield 2042 players can build and create their own custom game modes using content from historic Battlefield titles.
Battlefield 2042 will feature a myriad of returning fan-favourite weapons for use in Battlefield Portal. This list includes:
- Thompson SMG
- M1 Garand
- Lee-Enfield No.4
- BAR 1918
- StG 44
- Walther P38
Battlefield Bad Company 2
- Type 88 MG
- MP412 Rex revolver
- MP443 Games
- GOL Sniper
- M24 Sniper
- DAO-12 Shotgun
- SPAS 12
- AS VAL
- M98 Hat
- SVD Draugnov

That wraps up the list of all confirmed Battlefield 2042 weapons and guns. Make sure to secure one of the Battlefield 2042 editions and prepare for the game’s official release on November 19, 2021.
