Battlefield 4 will launch in a little over a month, but today you can check out all the various ways that you can upgrade your weapons this time around in the latest Battlefield 4 blog.

The first addition is that Battlefield 4 will have more weapon accessories and more accessory slots. This time around the number of available accessories has tripled and the number of available slots where you can install them has been increased as well. With everything available, you have more than 240,000 variations for one single weapon. 

They have also made sure that you will notice the difference in each weapon as you customize. They have added a visual guild on the right side of the screen for each weapon where stats such as damage, accuracy, hip fire accuracy, range and stability are displayed. You can instantly see how each attachment will change the stats of the gun.

Tons of new camouflage has been added as well. There are now 16 different pattern variations to choose from and they have been broken up into different sections including Autumn, Desert, Naval, Snow, Urban and Woodland.

New sniper options include the ability to "zero" your rifle scope. Whether your target is 200, 500 or ever 1000 meters away, you can calibrate the scope to compensate for bullet drop. For Recon players, 40X zoom scopes have been added for extreme long-distance sniping as well as a 2X magnifier to increase your optics on the fly. 

There is plenty more that they revealed in the latest blog which you can read at the following link.
