Datamining is quickly becoming an annoyance for both developers, and gamers. While developers have a lot of information buried in the files of a game, even in its beta form, it can spoil surprises for the fans, and possibly become untrue, if changes to the final build are made.
Following Metal Gear Solid V’s datamine of last week, someone has datamined the Star Wars Battlefront beta, revealing a list of weapons, missions and vehicles that fans can potentially look forward to when the game launches in November. Of course, you can stop reading here, and just avoid everything until the game launches. If, however, you want to see if the game contains enough content to justify the price tag of an online only game, be it set in the Star Wars universe, it might be worth your while having a quick look.
The full Google doc of information can be found here, and under the picture, we’ll post a quick list of some of the details, for those still interested in reading on.
Some of the weapons:
-The RT-97C is a versatile heavy blaster, fitted with optics to allow use at long range.
-A280 is a sturdy and powerful blaster rifle that has a high rate of fire, excellent damage and long range reach. It has been adopted by the Rebel Alliance as its main battle rifle.
-The SE-14C is a blaster pistol that fires 5-round bursts, making it ideal for close-quarter combat.
-The T-21 is a robust heavy blaster that delivers massive damage at long ranges. Its only drawback is its slow rate of fire and lack of optics.
-The CA-87 is a retro-fitted Jawa blaster that is extremely deadly at short range, but near useless at medium and long range.
-The EE-3 is an optically fitted Blaster Rifle capable of 3-round burst fire at long ranges.
-The DH-17 is a fully automatic blaster pistol. Its high rate of fire, along with reasonable accuracy, make it an ideal weapon for medium-range combat.
-The DLT-19 is a heavy blaster with an excellent rate of fire that deals heavy damage at long range, capable of pinning down troops and taking out large groups of enemies.
-The DL-44 is one of the most powerful blaster pistol in the galaxy. It delivers massive damage at close range, but overheats quickly.
-A powerful and accurate blaster rifle, the E-11 is ideal for use in all environments. It has been adopted as the standard weapon of the Imperial Forces.
