New Battlefield 5 "Finger Gun" Discovered, And It Has The Most Unsettling Reload Animation

Gross.

Players have discovered a neat new Battlefield V Easter Egg, but it has a horrifying twist.

Players recently came across "finger gun" Easter Egg in the World War II shooter, and it's just what you'd expect. It's a "weapon" where the player's hands come together to mimic the look of a pistol. The Easter Egg is quite robust. Fire the weapon and your character will yell "ka-pow!" and "pew-pew!" as comic book-style graphics appear on screen.

But then it takes a turn for the worse. You might have even seen it coming. How does one reload a finger gun? The answer is in a truly disgusting manner. The reload animation shows the player's finger snapping with bone-crunching noises and all. Then, to pull back the "hammer," the animation shows your thumb becoming dislocated and broken in multiple places.

You can see it in action in the video below from YouTube user DannyonPC (via PCGamesN). Someone named zhpete reportedly was the first to discover the Easter Egg.

As for how you can find the finger gun for yourself, it's not exactly clear. You apparently need to find a box with a shovel on it. If the light is green, the shovel points to an area where you can dig up the weapon. DannyonPC says they jumped around to 20 different servers to find it. The map in the video appears to be Hamada.

In other news, Battlefield V was recently updated with yet another free map. The new map is called Al Sundan, and you can play it right now.
