Soviet Recon! New BA-6 armored car incoming!

Straight from factory to front! In the coming update named Zhukov (after the Soviet Marshal Georgy Konstantinovich Zhukov) comes the BA-6 Recon vehicle. This is the first 6-wheeled vehicle in the game and its two-person crew can punch above their weight-class with both speed compared to tracked vehicles and a very effective cannon.

The BA-6 is a heavily armed Soviet six-wheeled armored scout car. It uses the same turret as the T-26 light tank. It is armed with a 45mm 20K main gun and a 7.62mm DT coaxial machinegun for defense against infantry.

New Scopes coming for all factions in Walker update!

Among all the other awesome new weapons, vehicle tweaks, etc. we must not forget that the Walker update ALSO brings a solid handful of new scopes to the game.

We know the gameplay with scoped rifles is loved by a lot of players, so this is something we have wanted to expand for a while. BUT this said, the different classes still have their different purposes on the battlefield, and we think it is much more fun if these differences are expanded by for example not giving everybody access to all scopes, but limiting the high end scopes to the recon class.

Oster is online!

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!

New Features

Mechanized Recon – New AT and New Vehicles

A new Assault Team makes its way onto the field of battle. Mechanized Recon – these recon ATs can not only help generals by spotting enemies from afar, but also deliver a considerable punch to lightly armored enemies in the action game. If you want to know more about the newly added SdKfz 222 & M8 Greyhound, take a look here.

New weapons

Fresh weapons! The Oster build also introduces the MG34 German light machine gun as well as the American M1918 Automatic Rifle. But that’s not all, the factory-fresh German Panzerschreck also makes an appearance on battlefields everywhere.

Updated weapon mods and tweaks

In addition to adding the above-mentioned new weapons, we have also gone through all the weapons and weapon mods, improving balancing between modded weapons and combat badges so everything now plays better, and fixing existing bugs. Ohh! And we’ve also given the hand grenades a boost so they are more effective and work much better in clearing rooms. You can read more about the updated weapons, mods & grenades here.

Hero Iteration

Another new exciting addition is a major update on how your character handles in the action game. This should give you a much better sense of where your character is in the environment as well as improving how the camera works, how aiming works and generally tightening the coupling between what you see and what the enemy sees on the screen. You can read more about the hero iteration here.

There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
