Battlefield 5: Chapter 5 and Year 2 Edition bring weapons that pack a punch

Battlefield V Year 2 Edition and Chapter 5 are out

Battlefield V has just got Year 2 Edition that adds vehicles, skins, and some weapons that you might have missed from the game’s earlier Chapters – as well as the base game, of course. Plus, Chapter 5: War in the Pacific has now landed, bringing “classic” maps Iwo Jima, Pacific Beach, and lots more to get stuck into.

Announced on the EA website, the Battlefield V Year 2 Edition adds all of the vehicles, weapons, and outfits rewarded in the game so far from Chapters One through Four in the live service, Tides of War. There are 17 Primary Weapons included, such as the Boys AT Rifle, ZK-383, MAB 38 rifle, plus four vehicles to try out, such as the Archer tank destroyer.

On top of these, there are two Epic Soldier outfits included in the new edition – the Baron Von Zorn and Double Down uniforms – and ten weapon skins to give your guns a different look, including the White Tiger and Firestarter skins. Speaking of skins, there are also four for your vehicles, too – EA says you can “give vehicles like the Stug IV and Spitfire Mk VB paint jobs of the Epic kind.”

The new Chapter 5 update brings its own goodies, too. According to EA’s site, War in the Pacific adds the U.S. Armed Forces and Imperial Japanese Army as two new factions, the two “classic” maps, with Wake Island to follow in December, and Elite skins, Jack Culver and Keisuke Nakamura.

Oh, and there’s a tank-busting Lunge Mine.
