These leaks came from Battlefield data miner temporyal, who discovered various different light, medium, and heavy ammunition types that you’ll be able to use when Battlefield 2042 finally arrives.

“Looks like we’ll be getting interesting options like a KRISS Vector with subsonic ammo or M44 with explosive rounds. Of course, there will be a certain amount of balancing restrictions,” the leaker tweeted.

“They have explosive and incendiary rounds in GTA Online and let’s just say it’s one reason why I don’t engage in PvP in that game. This makes me worried,” tweeted one player.
