In the upcoming Churchill update (named after the British soldier Jack Churchill) we are introducing a new weapon, the Johnson LMG for the American faction.
The weapon requires 6 equipment points and is available for US Infantry & Paratroopers!
US Infantry soldiers can unlock it on the LMG Assault Ribbon at Rank 12 as the 2nd Light machine gun!
It unlocks for US Paratroopers on the Parachute Ribbon at Rank 9.
The in-game Store will be getting a new section in the coming Bauer update: bundles, packed with upgraded weapons, exclusive skins (such as the Black Locust SVT-40 featured on this screenshot), Ribbon Boosters and Veteran Memberships. This is something every player can look forward to.
In the coming update named Bauer (after the German soldier Ludwig Bauer) we’re adding a brand-new MUCH REQUESTED vehicle to the game.
The German, Panzerkampfwagen Panther Ausf. G!
The Panther was created as a direct response to the threat from the Soviet T-34 family of tanks. It is protected with 80mm sloped frontal armor and armed with a fearsome 75mm KwK42 L/70 cannon. While it was intended to replace both the Panzer III & the Panzer IV families of tanks, it ended up serving alongside both the Panzer IV and the heavier Tiger tanks until the end of the war.
Infantry! Infantry everywhere! After showing you the new M16 MGMC, the GAZ-AAA and the SdKfz 7/1, there are also a handful of other tweaks incoming for the infantry! In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) a number of tweaks and adjustments will enhance infantry gameplay.
WEAPON AND GUNPLAY TWEAKS
We have been digging through the stats for a while, listened (and read) a lot of feedback & talked to a number of players, and we have decided on a few tweaks to help improve the feel of the gunplay in the game. Most notably we are adjusting a number of values around the semi-auto rifles (the Gewehr 43, M1 Garand & Tokarev SVT-40) to make them more valuable as weapons for both new players and veterans.
