Once you let the internet loose on your game, secrets don't tend to stay hidden for long. Battlefield: Hardline's current beta, and he's uncovered a batch of new guns that will presumably be available in the final product.has been digging through locked files in
He's not the only one doing some detective work.has also been hard at work, uncovering some interesting little tidbits of information regarding new game modes, dialogue and more.
Here's Hattiwatti's video showing the new guns in action.
And the full list:
M93R – Hand Gun
M1911 – Hand Gun
RS357 – Magnum
MAC-10 – Personal Defense Weapon
M240B – Light Machine-Gun
SR-25 ECC – Designated Marksmen Rifle
L96A1 – Bolt-Action Rifle
SMAW – Launcher
M18 – Smoke Grenade
Finally, here's SkakikPL's contribution, a bunch of unearthed snippets of dialogue and bits of data hinting at potential new modes.
“Desert 05 – Hostage rescue (no offical map name so far) – Hostage rescue against gang running a methamphetamine lab. Full transcript available here“
“Turf war on High Tension – most likely domination cameo as in recent interviews, Visceral employee said that as of now Conquest is not included in Hardline. Transcript of only audio file is available in above link.”
“Hostage sound files (mainly variations of words ‘hey/over here/help me/’ with one exception of ‘Hey man cut me loose’)”
“Molotovs/incendiary – Sound files indicate the existence of incendiary bombs, whilst ingame weapon name states Molotov. Most likely will stay as incendiary as currently it uses BF4 incendiary grenade particle effects.”
“Map called ‘growhouse’ will have a levolution event with blowing up Van”
“There is a singleplayer level nicknamed ‘Chop Shop’, which most likely is a warehouse raided by a player (it will end up in flames).”
“Sound files containing impact sounds of empty .45 shell on various surfaces (nicknamed Distraction bullet). May indicate that SP has stealth mechanics.”
Finally, and this counts as rumour until confirmed by Visceral or EA (which obviously it won't be until release), here's a tweet Hardline's final version.purportedly revealing the official names of maps to be added in
