The new build ‘Patton’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! This new update includes Russian weapons, weapon personalization, captured weapons, spotting 2.0, and more. We’re currently releasing new updates for the game more frequently than previously, so we’ve made a new videolog that summarizes some of the features introduced in the latest two updates :-)
Take a look here:
Here is a quick rundown of the video’s content:
Captured Russian Weapons
With the map of Europe being constantly redrawn by shifting frontlines and alliances, Russian weapons have begun making their appearance in the West. Whether captured from weapons depots or traded by the Soviets in exchange for foreign aid, they are now available for the troops in both factions.
The Russian weapons now available are:
Degtyarev DP 28 – Light Machine Gun
PPSh-41 – Submachine Gun
RGD-33 – Handgrenade
PMK-40 – Anti-personnel Mine
TM-35 – Anti-tank Mine
Opposing Faction Weapons
But that is not all – both the US and the German faction now have access to a few captured weapons from the opposing faction. This means that the German players can buy some of the US weapons and vice versa.
These weapon categories are:
Anti-personnel and Anti-tank mines
Close Combat weapons
The spotting system has gone through a couple of changes in the last couple of updates, with the help and feedback from the community.
The new spotting system includes limited view distance for spot notifications, different icons for spotted infantry and vehicles and when you’re inside a tank or a plane you can only see other spotted vehicles – not spotted infantry.
We have also introduced Weapon Personalization, where you can have different variations of wood, camouflage-patterns and coloring for your weapons.
Right now you can buy variations for the M1 Garand and the Gewehr 43, and in coming updates we’ll support personalization for the rest of the weapons, as well as add more variation options for each weapon.
We hope you will all help us welcome new players and community members to the game.
