Battlefield 5: Update 6.0 Patch Notes And Release Times Revealed
The new map is the jungle of Solomon Islands. It's full of choke points, connected by a river that runs the entire length of the map. It will also add the Type-11 LMB, Model 37 Shotgun, and M2 Carbine, along with the M1A1 Bazooka and Lunge Mine. Those will unlock through the Chapter Rank rewards, and if you hit Rank 40 you'll also get the Elite commander Misaki Yamashiro.
Two more elites, Steve Fisher and Akira Sakamoto, are coming later in the chapter. The studio teased that "many more" changes and fixes are coming in update 6.2, which will include a big change to weapon balance. We also know that tank customization, a long-requested feature, is finally on the way.
