With DICE inadvertently rolling out a Battlefield V battle royale Assignment (https://mp1st.com/news/battlefield-5-battle-royale-assignment-rolled-out-even-if-the-mode-isnt-out-yet) earlier this week, it seems the studio is finally ready to talk about the game’s battle royale mode, called “Firestorm,” soon.
Thankfully, we don’t have to wait long to know more info about it. By mining the game’s files via the latest game patch, (https://mp1st.com/news/battlefield-5-update-1-11-lightning-strikes-patch-4-now-live-heres-the-complete-patch-notes) a ton of Battlefield 5 battle royale info is now known! Note that what you’ll read below is NOT official, so anything can change at the last second, alright?
Here’s the breakdown from Reddit user temporyal. (https://www.reddit.com/r/BattlefieldV/comments/ay42xn/new_firestorm_info_details_what_we_can_learn_from/)
Battlefield Firestorm
“Do whatever it takes to survive. Compete solo or in a team to be the last one standing in a vast and dangerous world. Scavenge for supplies, outrun the Firestorm, and fight your way to victory.”
(snippet: ID_SPARTA_CASABLANCA_ROYALE_DESCRIPTION)
General info and game mode start


three variants: solo, duo (2 player teams), squad (4 player teams) with a player maximum of 64 per match
typical Battlefield classes will be present / choosable (snippet: ui/shared/widgets/classinforenderwidget)
code shows signs of an LFG system and “backfilling” entries
will have a separate ranking system
will (probably) occur in Tides of War – at least the code for a connection is already there
takes place in Norway (snippet: “/sparta/casablanca/royale/dk_norway-bd00e4f9.png” – also the level name itself contains the word “norway”)
you parachute from a plane into the war zone (snippet: Paradrop_Exit)
your hud will show an altimeter during the free fall / flight (snippet: ui/ingame/hud/widgets/parachutealtimeter)

Gameplay


if you get shot by an enemy you enter a “downed” state where you can crawl (but probably not fight) (snippet: DownedState_Crawl_LEFT_3)
there are various hints to a 3rd person camera angle but they are always tacked to the parachute start or when you get downed / killed
you have an inventory where you can store loot you find (snippet: UI/Ingame/Hud/Minimap/Inventroy – btw the typo is directly taken from the code)
loot has four types of “rarity” (snippet: ui/rarityselection; UI/s/HUD/Loot/RarityOne, UI/s/HUD/Loot/RarityTwo, …)
you can find better backpacks (three tiers) to extend your inventory
the map features safes that can be opened (this will be tracked in your stats) (snippet: safesOpened: w(t.royale.safesOpened, 0))
there are dynamic objectives on the map which you can capture (e.g. “resupply points” as mentioned later)
dynamic objectives may also be connected to “lockups” / “vehicle breakouts” mentioned in the code (snippet: w(t.royale.vehicleBreakoutsOpened, 0))

Weapons


weapons will categorized in tiers (1-4 can be found, 0 may be some kind of start equipment)
the HUD can feature six types of ammo: LMG, Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, SMG and Sniper (snippet: ui/images/hud/ammo/ammo_lmg)

Weapon Specializations (probably not complete, just the snippets):


Meta/SpecTree/Primary__Bayonet
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__Bipod
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__DetachableMag
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__ExtendedMag
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__FastBullets
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__HeavyLoad
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__IncendiBullets
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__QuickADS
Meta/SpecTree/Primary__Slug

Healing and Armor


you can find / use bandages and medic bags (small and large) (snippet: s/Meta/Gadget/Medical_Supplies_smallmedpack)
healing probably takes some time (snippet: MedicBag_Apply_Sequence)
there are three named tiers of armor vests (snippet: UI/Textures/Icons/HudArmourVestTier1, …)
there is a kind of special “armor plate” without any tiers (sounds like very strong armor loot?) (snippet: UI/Textures/Icons/HudArmourPlate)

Vehicles


various HUD elements give away that vehicles use fuel as a resource and therefore can’t be used without limits (probably for balancing) (snippet: ingame/hud/widgets/fuel; gameplay/schematicchannels/sc_vehiclefuel)
you can get vehicles by opening “vehicle breakouts” (probably the stronger ones…tanks?)
the tiger and the valentine are (until now) the only tanks I could find with a direct connection to Firestorm
other vehicles: “Halftracknomag”, “Kubelwagen”, “Kettenkra”, “MH101ctor” (snippet: LaVEH_Halftracknomag)
one interesting air vehicle snippet: “/Core/Vehicles/Air/VEH_plantuka_AI” – could be an AI controlled Stuka (plane + stuka = plantuka?) as a reinforcement

There is a number of “blue prints” for other vehicles (could be found by opening safes? I don’t know…):


Helicopter (yep!)
StaffCar
SportsCar
Schimmwagon
PickUpTruck
Tractor (probably the famous “MH101ctor” mentioned above and seen in the mini teaser)

Reinforcements


you can unlock and call in reinforcements (snippet: /gameplay/reinforcements/reinforcement_unlocks)
the following are present:
Artillery Strike (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/ArtilleryStrike)
Vehicle (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/r_vehicle)
Danger Zone (any ideas?) (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/r_dangerzone)
Supply Drop (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/r_supplydrop)
Strafing Run (maybe done by the AI controlled Stuka mentioned above) (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/r_strafingrun)
V1 Rocket (snippet: Meta/Reinforcements/r_v1rocket)

Again, these are from datamined files and not 100 percent confirmed by DICE or EA. But seeing as DICE themselves have commented on the Reddit post (https://www.reddit.com/r/BattlefieldV/comments/ay42xn/new_firestorm_info_details_what_we_can_learn_from/ehzcr9b/?context=1000&utm_source=reddit&utm_medium=usertext&utm_name=BattlefieldV&utm_content=t1_ehzcs1d) and haven’t denied any of it, it’s a safe bet most, if not all of these, will be present.
