QF1 AA IRL
The QF 1-pounder (Quick Firing) was the first autocannon, developed by Hiram Maxim of Great Britain. Also known as the "pom-pom" due to its iconic sound, it served as an anti-infantry and anti-aircraft weapon. It was fielded by many nations during World War I, including the German Empire and the United States, as well as their respective navies.


Battlefield 1 Edit

This item has a Codex entry: QF 1 Pom-Pom

The QF 1 AA is an emplaced anti-aircraft gun featured in Battlefield 1.

Singleplayer Edit

In Friends in High Places, where Clyde Blackburn uses one on the rear of a German Airship L30 to fight off a vicious German assault.

In Avanti Savoia!, Luca Vincenzo Cocchiola assumes control of one to fight off an Austro-Hungarian air strike before they fixate on his brother's squad's position.

Multiplayer Edit

The QF appears on Ballroom Blitz, Fao Fortress, Monte Grappa, Sinai Desert and St. Quentin Scar, all of which have the possibilty of spawning aircraft.

It is a devastating piece of anti-air weaponry and one of the more effective ground-to-air weapons against the Airship L30. Using explosive flak rounds, it can easily damage any aircraft within range, and a direct air-to-ground counter attack would be difficult due to the intense shaking caused by the explosions.

The gun lacks physical shielding and leaves the gunner exposed while using it. It's also not very effective against ground targets.

The QF 1 AA can also be equipped via the Armored Anti-Aircraft Package for the Artillery Truck, but it has less range than the stationary version.

Trivia Edit

  • It was first demonstrated at the "EA Play" event on June 12, 2016.
  • Until the Battlefield 1: They Shall Not Pass patch, AA rounds also inflicted impulse on struck planes, potentially driving them off course. As of the patch, AA rounds no longer impel, but merely damage.
