As is the tradition around the holidays from video game developers, EA DICE has decided to give a present to those who have continued to play Battlefield 5 despite the many other titles being released since its launch in early November.

Those who jump into the game will be eligible to receive the Battlefield 5 holiday weapon gift set, which is comprised of the M1897 shotgun and Ribeyrolles 1918 assault rifle. These aren’t festive-themed weapon skins, but actual weapons to be used in any game mode too.
