Welcome to the ribeyrolles 1918 factory. Today I will disclose everything that you need to know to dominate the Battlefield with this new rifle for the assault class and later in the video I will give you some tips on how to quickly unlock the Ribeyrolles in Battlefield 1. The Ribeyrolles 1918 was an attempt to manufacture an automatic rifle for the French forces. It was fed from a 25 round magazine and had an effective range of 400 m. The official name was Carabine Mitrailleuse 1918, in other words Machine Carbine 1918. Let’s start with the statistics because this will allow you to adjust your play style and strategy.
23 damage up to a range of 11 meters, like most guns in Battlefield 1 this damage will drop and it will still cause 20 damage at 28 meters, so you can still take advantage of the fact that you will only need 5 bullets to kill your next favorite victim if he is within 28 meters. The damage will continue to drop and eventually it will settle at 15 damage at 46 meters. The ribeyrolles 1918 can fire 550 rounds per minute which is identical to the rate of fire of the mp18. The muzzle velocity is higher for the ribbeyrolles, 520 meters per second, compared to only 420. You know already that you need 5 bullets to kill up to a range of 28 meters. If you combine all of these statistics then you will know that it will only take you 0.440 seconds to kill your enemy.
At our 20 meters reference point this time to kill is 0.475 seconds. Be careful, because the time to kill will jump up as soon as you need 6 bullets to kill instead of five. When you deploy on the battlefield, with your shiney new assault rifle, you will start off with 25 bullets in your magazine and you will carry another 100 for later. The reload times are pretty good, seconds for an empty reload and seconds for a reload with bullets left. The deploy time is seconds and it has a standard bullet drop of 12 meters per second squared.
In Battlefield 1, the Ribeyrolles 1918 factory comes equipped with a bipod and I’m sure that you know how to use that to your advantage. You can select and iron sights or a buckhorn sight, the highest magnification that you can select is a 2 times magnification, you have the option to attach a bayonet and you can change the recoil direction. If you want to get your hands on this new assault rifle then you will have to get 50 kills with the Automatico M1918 Factory and you will have to get 20 headshots with the MP 18 Optical. The 50 kills is easy and a great player like yourself will only need about 2 rounds to do that. Most people seem to struggle with getting 20 headshts with the MP 18 optical. The best advice that I can give you is from 2 guys who were playing in the CTE. enfachTomm or simplyTomm is struggling with his headshots and he is asking for help, tasty-milk comes to the rescue and he said: get close to the enemy… aim for the head. I don’t want to state the obvious like he did but that is the best advice there is, it’s just that simple. When you go for this assignment, it’s better to constantly flank the enemy, like you normally would right, so never attack head on because you want to get close enough to your enemy so that you can give him a nice headshot.
It also pays off to set up your mp 18 with a reticle that makes it easier for you to get those headshots. For me that meant using the ring reticle instead of my usual cross reticle. Another tip is to always use ADS, this will increase your chances of getting that head shot. I saw in the chat that some guys took over 2 hours to do that but I’m 100% sure that you can do it much faster than that. The Ribeyrolles 1918 factory does come with one noticeable downside. The muzzle flash is relatively big and it will block an important part of your view for every single bullet that you fire and this makes it a lot more difficult to track your enemy if he is on the move. At first I thought it was my buckhorn sight that was blocking my view, which was strange because I always prefer that one over the iron sight but then it became clear that it was the muzzle flash that was making it more difficult to track an enemy who was trying to dodge my bullets.
Whether you want to deal with that is completely up to you, but I will definitely recommend you to try out this gun for yourself so that you can make your own decision. So what is the verdict? The Ribeyrolles 1918 factory is an ok weapon for the assault class. The bipod is definitely an attractive feature for those longer range kills but you will have to to deal with the muzzle flash that can block the view of your enemy.
