To help our American friends celebrate Independence Day this Fourth of July, we’re giving everybody a voucher with a free 24 hour veteran membership!
Rumors have been flying! Whispers heard at night in the barracks. BUT NOW the wait is almost over! 2 new weapons shows up in the Walker update! The American M1/M2 Carbine and the German StG44! These much requested high tier weapons will soon be available to enjoy!
The next update is called ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker, and here these new weapons will be available!
German Sturmgewehr 44
This is one of the most iconic weapons of World War II and is a truly fearsome beast. Sturmgewehr means “assault rifle” and that is just what it is for – Assault! It fires a shortened down version of the normal German 8×57 IS round called the 7.92x33mm Kurz (short). This gives it less power and range than the rifles firing the full-sized 8x57IS, but it more than makes up for this with a 30-round magazine, selective fire (choose between full and semi-automatic fire)
We have pulled performance stats for all vehicles and looked at how they perform in game and we’ve been digging through our forums and the Steam discussions to gather as much community feedback as possible, and now we’ve rolled this into a great big balancing pass for armored vehicles (and AA cannons).
The next update is called ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker, and here these tweaks, fixes, etc. will show up. Keep reading for more details on what is being improved.
While we are still hard at work getting the Walker update ready for you all, it is time to lift the curtain and reveal some of the awesome new features this update brings! The update is called ‘Walker’ after the American Major General Fred L. Walker.
A map that has been around for quite a while is the Factory map, and this time reto.Desji managed to find time in between his other very secret work to give it a makeover, addressing a lot of the major and minor annoyances on the map, as well as adding a solid handful of new tweaks to improve the level.

Monday, June 22nd marks the anniversary of the beginning of Operation Bagration in 1944, a major Soviet offensive pushing west into Poland and Belarus aimed at driving the German forces out!
The date was chosen to be the same calendar day as when Germany invaded the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa in 1941. So in effect this is a double anniversary. We want to commemorate Operation Bagration by giving you all a present this weekend!
After the Vasilevsky update rolled out on the servers we have spent a lot of time looking at player performance, trawled the forums and generally been gathering more information on what the community likes and dislikes.
This brand-new update brings a lot of new features – assault team morale , a new melee system and more! The update is named Vasilevsky after the Soviet general Aleksandr Vasilevsky and here’s a quick overview of 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…
In the next major update, named Vasilevsky, we have greatly improved the melee combat. We know that a lot of players like to carry a knife or shovel or maybe a wrench with which they can also fix both their own and teammates vehicles. But we felt the melee combat could be improved and so we did.
We have just given our melee mechanics another iteration, using Inverse Kinematics and more precise animations to aid the attacker.
It will now be easier to hit your enemy with knives, shovels and wrenches.
This coming weekend is Memorial Day weekend in the United States with Memorial Day itself on Monday.
This is a day honoring those who lost their lives in military service, similar to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth, Volkstrauertag in Germany, the ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand and many other days of remembrance all over the world.
We want to take this opportunity to remember the ones who have sacrificed their lives to secure the future of their nation, not ONLY in the United States but all over the world.
