Want to try a new weapon? Gold Special Offer!

Save time – buy a weapon now!

We realize that not all players have an equal amount of time to play Heroes & Generals and grind their way towards unlocking new weapons, so we now offer you to save time and purchase a weapon with gold before you have unlocked it. However, you may still purchase it for credits if you wait until you have unlocked it through ribbon- or rank-progression.

You can of course only buy and equip weapons that your selected character can use, but you don’t have to spend the time earning credits and unlocks for it if you’d rather spend a bit of gold and get cracking right away.

We feel this fits in nicely with the game’s philosophy of spending gold to save time, so you either earn a new gun by spending time grinding credits or you work your day job and spend money instead. This is the most fair solution for everybody, so if you want something NOW – you pay for it, and if you are ok with it taking some time – you play for it. :-)

So if you’re itching to try out new weaponry: stock up on gold in the shop here and then head to the shop ingame.

and last but not least, we have JUST started a:

GOLD Special offer

Buy Gold
We are currently running a special offer on one of the gold bundles where you get 5100 HG Gold Coin for the price of 4700 HG Gold Coin, thus an extra FREE 400 HG Gold Coin gold.

Interested? Click the image above, or click here to buy gold.

We are working as fast as we can on new content so stay tuned for more exciting news :-)

    the idea is ok but one question will be
    so sry when i read the TEXT wrong ore so ;)

    when a player can buy the Weapon with Gold means that he can buy the MG42/BAR and play with rank LVL 1? Ore he can use it also with the “Right Rank LVL” ?

      You can buy the weapon and use it right away. You don’t have to rank up. So for examlpe; if you REALLY want a new MachineGun for the weekend, but can see you wont unlock it before Wednesday next week you can choose to spend a bit of real world money for the privilege of getting the weapon NOW. If you don’t want to pay you have to play :-)

    Great, so now level 1 players can buy a sniper rifle for their infantry character!

    I am not happy with this at all.

    • Reto.Robotron3000Reto.Robotron300004-25-2014

      If they want to pay for it yes, just like if they spent the time and unlocked it through the bolt-action rifle ribbon…
      But they are probably not very effective with it, so what you do is kill them and take it for yourself ;-)

      I’m with you Dodergod. This game is fantastic, and I get that some people don’t have the time to “grind” it out for their next weapon. But, I personally work 8hrs. a day and I make whatever free time I have to play and earn it the right way. I mean, you’re just pretty much handing over the next tier weapon if you have a couple of bucks in your pocket. Like I said, the game is fantastic but by letting nubes have this option makes you (the developer) with all do respect, like you’re spinning it in your favor to make a quick buck. You should have to do the time to get the prize! ;)

        I’m sorry, but this is just ridiculous. It’s nothing more than a pay-to-win feature.

        • Reto.Robotron3000Reto.Robotron300004-27-2014

          It is the exact same weapon, you don’t ‘win’ more by getting it earlier… IF the weapon you bought using gold was better, THEN it could be considered pay2win..When it is the same – not so much.

    I fell for this before. I bought a weapon for gold, but now it’s unavailable to my character. In my case I paid GOLD for the M1919, and now it’s no longer available to my Rank 9 Infantryman.

    Can we exchange previously weapons we purchased for GOLD for a new weapon?
    Or can we reactive weapons that were previously purchased for GOLD?
    Or can we have a refund for those weapons we purchased for GOLD and are no longer available to our characters?

    I don’t want to pay REAL MONEY for things that are going to be taken away later, if we cannot exchange them.

    • Reto.GargamelReto.Gargamel04-25-2014

      I just went and fixed it :)

      Sorry for the inconvenience; this was an unintended consequence of beta features. You still had the M1919 for your Rifleman, only it just got locked again due to the introduction of the M1918 in the ribbon progress tree. When your LMG Assault ribbon reaches grade 6, you’ll have two M1919s, one for everyday use and one for special occasions ;)

      See you soon on the battlefield!

        That was super cool Reto. :) It’s great to see that “Johnny on the spot” attitude. Especially now of days. GG ;)

    I dont need more weapons, with my Standard factory MG42 i reached the rank 9 of the world, i have lots of credits, warfunds and even gold, all earned in battle, i can even buy 1 month subscription with my earned in battle gold, but for what? play at 2 fps in a computer what can run games in HD at 60fps, even with a fresh install, i mean an exclusive hard drive for H&G i can only get 13 fps – 22 fps.

    But seems what the ONLY person in the WORLD with this performance issue is me, i dont need more gold or weapons, i need a solution for the terrible performance in this game.

    • aaron1234qaaron1234q04-26-2014

      I understand how you feel. I when I play on medium settings on the large town map, I get around 16ish fps. On the others I get around 19-25 fps. This game has room to be optimized, but I hope the devs just try and work out bugs like the one when you get off a bike and go flying up into the air. I really enjoy this game, and have dropped others for it. My computer can usually run other games no problem, but this one struggles a little bit. I had one point I didn’t quite like about it, but I can’t remember now. Well devs, GG, and for you, keep playing.

    You have to admit that you are not making this change to give players new possibilities, but to fill your need for more money. This sounds just like an ad, first of a kind from this developer. But, I understand. I have actually wondered how is Reto getting enough money from this game if they have so few uses for gold. So this is the first step towards making this game more commercial, but necessary for the stability of future development.

  6. FontanFontan04-27-2014

    I want the same option for Assault Teams please.

  7. GrDHanibalGrDHanibal04-27-2014

    bad call reto. better jack the price of all these guns. Better cost 6,000 gold for smg 10,000 for mg, ect. Seems more like pay to win to me.

  8. lahalivelahalive04-28-2014

    Well this certainly was a splendid idea…. Sarcasm involved.. Now every Little Fu**er is running aroung with MG34, Panzerschrecks, Mg 42 etc… WTF Reto..? I liked the idea that in this game, you could not just buy your way up. And yes, you’re right, better weapons dosn’t make the player better, but M1 against MG42 and MP40, most people will lose, no matter how good a player they are( and I’m not that great.)

    I really think this move sucks.
    If Money was the issue, then make a sale on mods, or veteran membership, or make it possible to buy membership longer than 3 months :-(
