Developer-exclusive models of Battlefield 1 sidearms have surfaced on the game’s Community Test Enviroment for all to use.

Developer-only gun variants are common in the Battlefield series, giving the game creators a little something special to use in multiplayer that the general community will never get its hands on. A video by popular Battlefield YouTuber Westie details some examples of this in past Battlefield games, and also breaks down the two developer-exclusive side arms that are now, inexplicably, able to be equipped on the CTE.

The first handgun up for grabs is the C96 Export, a modded version of a Medic-exclusive side arm that can be used by all classes. The gun is generally the same as the main game version, with some small statistical differences that are explained in the video. Next up is the Howdah Pistol Sweeper which boasts a much more significant variation and is also usable by all classes, unlike the normal model. While the community’s Howdah Pistol fires bullets, the developer-only model discharges shotgun shells for a secondary that excels even more in close-quarters.

These two weapons will likely never see the light of day in the main game, but for now, non-developer PC players can take them for a spin in the confines of the CTE. Four new weapon variants were recently added to the CTE prior to these two side arms, but unlike the handguns, the other four weapons are actually making it to the main game.
