Another week, another new Battlefield 5 weapon – this week you have the opportunity to unlock the Battlefield 5 LS/26 LMG, also known as the Lahti-Saloranta M26. This Finnish LMG isn’t particularly well known and certainly has its share of problems, but is supposedly very accurate. A lot of the new Battlefield 5 LMGs introduced through weekly challenges have been MMGs, so it’s good to see a new LMG added to the support arsenal.

To grab the Battlefield 5 LS/26 LMG for yourself you’ll need to complete a set of weekly challenges, which you can monitor in the Tides of War menu. There are a total of 11 Trial By Fire Week 5 challenges, two of which are optional. However, you only actually need to complete five challenges to unlock the new Battlefield 5 LMG – just take a look at the menu screen in-game to see what path best suits your style of play.

A lot of these challenges are designed to tie in with the reintroduction of Squad Conquest, which is the 8 vs. 8 variation where teams that work together tend to win. Here are the Battlefield 5 LS/26 LMG challenges:

  • Lockdown – 4,500 Chapter XP
    Capture 2 Objectives
  • (Optional) Valkyrie – 10,000 Chapter XP
    Down, Kill or Driver Assist 1 enemy while seated in a Kolibri synchropter in Firestorm
