This week, starting today and ending with the regular Tuesday server maintenance on the morning of Dec. 15th CET, there is a massive 25% discount on ALL scopes.
Have you been saving up to get that scope on your bolt action or semi automatic rifle, or have you been longing for some full auto accuracy? This is the perfect time for you to get the scopes you have had your eyes on.
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.
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.
After getting the new stocks for the semi-auto rifles out to the waiting troops, now it’s time for more weapon personalizations! This time the bolt-action rifles and 2 of the submachine guns are getting ready for fun and adventure.
Here is the full list and remember that you can also personalize weapons you already own.
The weapons getting personal this time around are the following:
- German Bolt-Action Rifle: Kar98
- German Bolt-Action Rifle: Kar98 Scoped
- American Bolt-Action Rifle: M1903
- American Bolt-Action Rifle: M1903 Scoped
- American Submachine gun: M3 Grease Gun
- German Submachine gun: MP34
Here are a couple of examples of the US M3 Grease Gun and the German MP34 options.
