By now you’ll probably have watched the Battlefield 1 trailer and, if the stats are anything to go by, you probably liked it. For more from GamesRadar Subscribe: http://goo.gl/cnjsn1 There are some great videos analysing every detail, but today we’re going to dig into the history behind the trailer. It’s okay though, because is the interesting sort of history; the kind with explosions, and mustard gas, and clubs made of nails. http://www.gamesradar.com http://www.facebook.com/gamesradar http://www.twitter.com/gamesradar http://www.twitch.tv/gamesradar

Gamer you bring very good facts to the table and you definitely informed more people about WW1 but I just wish to knit pick a bit if you do not mind, The Stahlhelm did not take basin from the pikelhaubes, in fact it looked more closely to the head piece on Gothic armor. You can also see the British do this with there Brodie helmet where infact it is highly based off of there medievial crossbow men helmet. Infact the Adrian seems like the only helmet that had its own original model. The man carrying the MG in his full plate isn't even remotely meant to be based off of the Strosstruppen/Storm truppen as they never even had face guards. Although the battle field 1 devs did make mess up where in all of its art for some reason he is wearing the German sniper mask but when you're actually in the game he's wearing the Farina helmet with some sort of face plate, you can tell his armor is based off of Italian armor with some added arm and shouldrr protrction which looks scrapped from medievsl italian armor and NOT the Storm truppen lobster armor. He is also wielding an MG08 which is a German machine gun but is possible on some standards. Would have made more sense to give him a Barreta modele a Fiat revelli or on an even more far fetch then the MG08 a chauchat or hotchkiss

Gas being banned in combat, but still used by the Japanese in WWII against Chinese armed forces (and experimented on Chinese POWs and civilians).

Quite sure that the amount of black/indian soldiers wasn't 50% on the battelfield in western Europe WW1.That the main story contains them is no problem since the hellfighters had Afro-americans and you could focus on that (0.0001%) group. Also why is it the Italian, Austro empire and Ottoman empire dont have different nationalities?

This is another reason why Battlefield 1 is fun because they try to make it historically accurate as possible while Cod just listens to the fans and puts bullshit into the game I actually thought CoD WW2 might've been a good game but the multiplayer just looks absolutely terrible it's totally unhistorically accurate they have Black people fighting on nazi germanys side they even have female soldiers in the game especially black on the axis powers and no swastikas, the campaign might be accurate but the multiplayer no sir

I really don't understand why there are so many black soldiers are in bf1.. it's unrelated kinda. But the fact is there wasn't even Africans fighting alongside the Americans in ww1 they fought with the French and British. But under the American flag. I'm not trying to be racist by saying this. But it's true and my question to dice is why is the main picture an African American soldier?? Only about 400,000 (correct me if I'm wrong) fought in the war so it doesn't really make any sense to me..if someone wants to explain please do.

Fun fact: Mustard gas couldn't be counteracted by a gas mask since it's exposure to skin alone would cause blistering. The gas in Bf1 is either Chlorine gas, or a combination of chlorine and phosgene gas. Chlorine gas also had a greenish-grey color, and the phosgene had a moldy hay smell. Since no blisters appear in game, this is the most likely culprit. Not only that, but when you throw the gas grenades, the gas dosen't sink into crevices, trenches, ect. unlike mustard gas which was heavier than the surrounding air. Chlorine however, did not sink
Joe R. (1 year ago)
Yaboy I was just pointing out the differences between in-game gas and real life mustard gas, since I have heard people call it that. I just thought it was interesting. After all, its just called a "gas grenade" and which type is never explored.

All this game needs is a playable campaign, in which we fight as a soldier named Henry Jones Jr. Or, as his acheologist name goes by...INDIANA JONES!!!! Or at least a nice Easter Egg. To call back to the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles TV show with Sean Patrick Flannery. In it, he starred as take a wild guess, growing up in early United States. And his journey brought him into the front lines of WW1

TravisProductions (1 year ago)
The spike on top of the German helmet was meant for deflecting a sword to the head by making the sword hit one side or the other, which caused the sword to slide off the helmet, if the spike wasn't on the helmet than the soldier was vulnerable to getting a sword stuck on top of the skull, the reason people would hit a soldier on top of head with sword is because it was trench warfare, so whoever was invading the trench was coming from above, and they would strike them on top of the head for an instant kill, but the spike on top of the helmet deflected that.

The Prussian (1 year ago)
couple of things, stahlhelm was designed on the most protective shape with extensive testing to create the right thickness and protection, the shape is only coincidental, the pickelhaube was part of the ceremonial dress the spike used to easily identify other Prussian soldiers, different shapes for different units jaeger, hussars etc identifying the units around you on the confusion of a battlefield similar to a standard

As a semi historian, the fact that this video exists to explain to people that bf1 is set during ww1 is just disappointing
Safsoufa Games (11 months ago)
how is it sad? BF1 is set in world war 1... its not accurate gameplay.. but the setting is world war 1
Dustin Matos (1 year ago)
It's focused more on analyzing/explaining the equipment shown rather than the general setting. If people can't get that it's set in WW1 just from the marketing of BF1, THAT is damn disappointing.
ko de bruin (1 year ago)
The m16, m17 and m18 stahlhelm where not based of the pickelhaube. The pickelhaube was from leather and later on steel but the design is no where near based on it.

Jacket (1 year ago)
I'd like to argue that the gas in the gas grenades is in fact not mustard gas and is instead chlorine gas due to the fact that in gameplay you aren't damaged by it while wearing a gas mask, and it may just be me but that gas looks way greener than mustard gas which from what I've seen is much yellower in color.
