M1897 IRL

A M1897 in reality

The Winchester Model 1897, more commonly referred to as the Trench Gun or simply the M1897 is a pump-action Shotgun designed by John Moses Browning. It is an improvement to the Winchester Model 1893. The weapon was popular among American soldiers during World War I, and at one point was even protested by Germans over its usage.

Battlefield 1Edit

For the Codex Entry see M1897 Shotgun (Codex Entry)
"This American trench gun proved to be so effective during war that the German Empire protested its use. Can be fired without releasing the trigger."
— In-game description

The M97 Trench Gun is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1 for the Assault kit. It possesses an unusually high rate of fire for a shotgun thanks to its ability to be slamfired. However, firing as fast as possible causes significant accuracy loss, making it only advisable to do so at very close range.

SingleplayerEdit

the M97 is one of several weapons that the Harlem Hellfighters are equipped with in the prologue, Storm of Steel.

MultiplayerEdit

Four variants of the M97 are featured in multiplayer: Backbored, Hunter, Sweeper and Hellfighter.

The Backbored variant of the weapon decreases the weapon's recoil but increases the weapon's damage falloff, essentially making follow-up shots easier to hit at the cost of increasing the likelihood the user will have to make one. As it features no visible choke modification, it can be considered the base variant.

The Hunter variant adds a tight choke that decreases the weapon's spread and damage falloff, making it better at medium range at the cost of ease-of-use in extreme close-quarters.

The Sweeper variant adds a wide choke that increases the weapon's spread and pellet count, making it better at fighting in extreme close-quarters at the cost of range.

The Hellfighter variant is exclusive to owners of the Hellfighter Pack. It's essentially the Backbored variant, but is equipped with an exclusive Hellfighter-themed skin.
