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.
Straight from the factories comes this symbol of Soviet ingenuity! By mounting an Anti-Aircraft gun on a truck chassis we have added mobility to the AA!
In the coming update named Adams (after the American hero Lucian Adams) comes the GAZ-AAA M-4 Maxim mobile AA truck.
The Gorkiy Auto Zavod-AAA Anti-Aircraft truck is a Soviet tri-axial truck mounted with a quad Maxim M-4 Anti-Aircraft gun. Although the M-4 is designed for use against low-flying aircraft it is also an excellent infantry support vehicle taking out enemy cars and unarmored (or light armored) vehicles.
How do I get my hands on this fantastic machine?
The upcoming ‘Adams – Ground Fire‘ update (Named after American hero Lucian Adams) will improve the gunplay mechanics. A new hip-fire mechanism has been implemented and the cone-fire have been made more consistent.
Have you ever experienced shooting at an enemy at close range. You had a clear headshot, but the bullet hit below the crosshair or hit something else entirely? here we explain how bullet trajectory works and why you missed your target. Further details includes improvements to the hip-fire mechanics and cone-fire mechanics.
