    10:07 The guy is in agony because he's under sonic attack from that awful guitar track in the background.

    only the germans had an smg and it wasnt introduced until near the end of the war, all sides had heavey machine guns but these were mostly mounted on a cairrage and were belt fed although the lewis gun had a round magazine weighing in at 13kg unloaded it could hardly be used as an assault weapon, the vast majority of fighting was done with bolt action rifles, bayonets, trench knives and shovels although the americans had auto shotguns

    if tanks are to be portrayed realisticly then the German A7V would be next to useless against british and french tanks and there were no effective anti tank weapons available at the time except for anti tank rifles

    I'm not expecting realistic period weaponry. This is a casual shooter, going bolt action only would be suicide.

    Yet that's exactly what the guy is carrying at 0:28 in the trailer, where he shoots the guy with the chlorine behind him.
    I guess it's just a game after all :)

    Yep, it has both in the trailer.

    imo wait for the gameplay footage which is coming early June.

    DICE will be using everything they can from WWI including prototype armour and SMGs -- including the things that weren't in common use on the Battlefield like armoured trains.

    Battlefield games is a casual shooter after all -- the focus is on fun, not on being ARMA III.

    I think this may be the best Battlefield since Bad Company 2.

    Yup it's already been confirmed, I think the assault class will SMGs, Support LMGs. There will also be emplacements with various types of machine guns.

    All this kind of stuff.. World War 1 Machine Guns (1914-1918)

    So if you feel like using machine guns, they will be there.

    Personally I am looking forward to using a bolt action. You know they will do a TON of damage, probably 55+ for a body shot and OHK head shots. If you have ok aim, that will be a very effective weapon type and fun to use.

    Because it's a spade?
    Used for digging? (as opposed to shovelling)
    Wikipedia:An entrenching tool, E-tool, or trenching tool is a collapsible spade used by military forces for a variety of military purposes.

    Calling a spade an entrenching tool reminds me of the mangulation(tm) coined by the yanks when they wanted to extract the maximum price for a vehicular ingress-egress facilitator, in other words, a ladder...
