BF1: Red Rising is a fan proposed DLC for Battlefield 1 featuring new maps, vehicles, and weapons. The maps in the DLC are based on the battles of Russian Revolution and Russian Civil War, as well as the Finnish Civil War and Polish Civil War, taking place between 1917 and 1920. In this sense, it can be considered a "sequel" of sorts to the "In The Name of the Tsar" DLC. Also includes a few Russian prototypes that never saw action that were (presumably due to obscurity- will change if they are included) not included in "In The Name of the Tsar". The DLC has more maps to compensate for the fewer weapons included.


In the wake of the devastation caused by the Great War, the Russian Empire fell in ruin, the tsar deposed in the Russian Revolution. The rise of the Soviet Union set Eastern Europe ablaze as the Red Army clashed with the remains of the Tsarist regime, as well newly independent nations such as Poland, Finland, Czechoslovakia, and Latvia. The Red Rising DLC takes you inside this bloody chapter of history. Storm the Winter Palace in the name of the Proletariat, ride the rails across the vast emptiness of Siberia with the Czechoslovak Legion, Stand at the Vistula against the oncoming Soviet hordes, and fight a desperate struggle at Tampere in Finland to avoid becoming one more resident of the Kalevankangas Cemetary!

  • Class: Scout
  • Skins: Shipka Pass (Engraved), Philippopolis (silver), Alexander the Liberator (gold)

Old 19th century American-designed rifle manufactured and used by the Russians. This single-shot breech-loading rifle saw some use in the street fighting of the Russian Civil War. In terms of game performance, it comes in two variants: Berdan Sniper and Berdan Infantry, the sniper variant having a scope. The weapon has "sweet spot" between 25 and 75 meters, and like the Martini-Henry, has increased "sweet spot" damage over other weapons, to make up for its single shot. Usable in the Scout class.

Civilian and outdated weapons like the Krnka sometimes saw combat in the brutal street fighting of the Revolution. Single shot with no magazine (reload every round), but with low spread and higher damage than even the Model 10 A. The rifle variant is an unmodified Krnka rifle, similar damage to the Model 10A Slug. Usable in Assault class.

  • Seats: 1
  • Weapons: Machine gun (driver)

Ultra-light tank base on real-life 1915 Russian prototype that never saw action. Very fast single seat vehicle armed only with a machine gun.
