After rolling out new tanks, now it is time for a few weapon updates, and a lot of tweaks behind the scenes. Fresh from the front line you are now able to buy and equip captured enemy weapons! Including weapons from none other than the Russians.
The Germans has managed to capture a few weapons from the East and after giving them their new (long) German names they are making their way to the front. After getting wind of this, the Americans immediately pursued their Soviet allies to provide them with weapons as well for field-testing. The German engineers have also begun supplying M24 Frag Sleeve grenades to the front. So these are now available as well. On the same note all grenades have been tweaked and differentiated a bit more, so they now have different strengths and weaknesses.
The weapons rotating below are the following:
- PPSh-41 aka ‘Maschinenpistole 717(r)’
- M24 Frag Sleeve (Germans only) – Slightly shorter throw range, but does more damage as the M24 Handgrenades
- Degtyarev DP-28 aka ‘Maschinengewehr 120(r)’
- RGD-33 aka ‘Handgranate 337(r)’
- TM-35 mines
- PMK-40 mines
This update also introduces the first step in ‘Weapon Personalization’ where you can buy personalized weapons or personalize the weapons you already own. This first iteration introduces the G43 and the Garand semi-auto rifles, with more to follow in the coming weeks.For more details on what’s new continue reading below.

Tired of sitting in another hero’s wornout beater of a car? Tired of smelling the stale cigarette smoke from the fuzzy dice dangling from the rear-view mirror? Tired of having the glovebox stuffed full of chewing gum and nylon stockings when it could contain a useful map, a handgrenade and a bottle of fine cognac? Remember how we teased you with the prospect of exciting new things?

Today we’ll look at a favorite of mine, the renowned M1 Garand. It’s your starting weapon when you begin your career as an American Rifleman, which reflects historical facts: the United States Armed Forces adopted the Garand as the standard service rifle in 1936. It’s still widely used by civilians and sought after by collectors to this day.
