Battlefield 2042 Season 5: New Dawn delivered three new weapons for players to unlock and put to the test. Here’s how to get the GEW-46, XCE Bar, and BFP.50 in Battlefield 2042 Season 5.

Battlefield 2042 Season 5 kicked off on June 7 with the New Dawn update bringing plenty of new content for players to sink their teeth into. While the familiar Reclaimed map, loosely based on the classic Zavod 311, was a highlight from the Season 5 update, players will look to get their hands on the new weapons as well.

New weapons tend to always attract interest from players and the Battlefield 2042 Season 5 update introduced three new guns: the GEW-46 Assault Rifle, BFP.50 Sidearm, and XCE Bar Bolt-Action Rifle.

Here’s how players can unlock all of Battlefield 2042 Season 5’s new weapons.
