Welcome to a new section of the Heroes & Generals news blog, the Weapon Files. As the name implies, we will use this series of posts to review the armament available to your soldiers and discuss the characteristics of individual weapons. We will start with a brief introduction about weapon ranges. As is often the case, pictures can explain this concept better than words.
First of all, what is your gamertag in Heroes & Generals?

What games have you worked on?
None before H&G, so I guess I’m what they call a “QA virgin”.
With the videolog out of the door and the Oster build running full steam on the servers, most of us at Reto HQ are taking celebrating Easter the traditional Danish way; frolicking around outside looking for egg-laying rabbits and hares and IF we spot one we run home and eat a leg of lamb as per tradition! :-D
(sorry for the horrible pun! I’ll immediately get back to my hare-hunting)
The new build ‘Oster’ is online with a lot of exciting new stuff! With Easter upon us we managed to lure Reto.Colding and Reto.Gargamel into the editing booth with promises of all the eggs and bunnies they could eat. Reto.Gargamel is taking over the narrator duties from Reto.KenSolo so please be kind to the new voice :-)
Take a look here:
We have just uploaded the first hotfix of the Oster build. This new hotfix addresses both a handful of bugs that we’ve found over the last couple of days as well as a few tweaks.
- Machine guns (M1918, MG34, M1919 & MG42): Range increased, and “far Damage” lowered
- this has the effect that the weapons will damage enemies further away.
- Sub-machine guns (MP40 & Thompson): Near damage buffed, range increased
- this makes the SMGs a bit more effective
- Semi-Auto rifles (M1 and G43): Range increased
- this makes the weapons a bit more effective at range
- Head damage multiplier upped from 3 to 4
Other Tweaks & Fixes
The new build named Oster (after the German Major General Hans Oster) is live on the servers! So that you know what to look out for when you jump in, here’s a short update explaining the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!
There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
