SingleplayerEdit

The singleplayer campaign chapter Avanti Savoia features the Arditi - the army's elite storm troopers - and Alpini - Italian Mountainous Division. Unlike Austro-Hungarians, Italian soldiers use randomly generated character models from Multiplayer. Their primary weapons are also randomly generated and consist of five models (Automatico M1918, M1909 Benét–Mercié, Cei-Rigotti, Russian 1895 and, rarely, SMLE MKIII with scope). Italian soldiers use a Pickaxe as their melee weapon.

MultiplayerEdit

The Italian Army is one of six factions set to appear in the base game of Battlefield 1, fighting alongside the Allies of Great Britain and the United States against the Central Powers. The faction is dressed in the standard M1909 grigio-verde colored tunic, with its distinctive padded shoulder rolls, with some soldiers equipped with cold-weather capes. Headgear is comprised mostly of the Italian version of the French-designed Adrian helmet, although fur hats and wool knit caps also are worn. Currently appearing only in maps set in Italy itself, the Royal Italian Army exclusively faces the Austro-Hungarian Empire in both the mountainous north and the eastern coastline of the country.
