Weapon File: M1 Garand

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.

NEW TRAILER: “Wars aren’t won by TANKS alone”

We are in the progress of polishing up a bunch of new toys for you at a scale you haven’t seen from us before! A series of massive updates bringing loads of new weapons and vehicles, plus some really cool new features will hit the live servers over the next few weeks, and we’re dying to present this to you – but… no spoilers… You’ll just have to wait and see ;-)

Yes, we know it’s not fair to tease you like that, but stay tuned – the new updates will hit the live servers before you can say “Jagdpanzer acht-und-dreißig T”, ten times in a row.

Wars Aren’t Won By TANKS Alone Trailer

To celebrate the upcoming content-fest, we are proud to present our new Heroes & Generals “Wars Aren’t Won by Tanks Alone” gameplay trailer showcasing the various different roles you can take in the persistent war between Axis and Allies in the European theater of war and reminding you that you need soldiers to win a war – not just tanks and planes… ;-)

A shout out goes to the dedicated community-members who helped us stage these scenes and an Academy Award, BAFTA & Emmy goes to them for their performance as actors, when we captured these fantastic in-game shots – thanks for all the late hours you put in!

Weapon Files: Thompson M1A1

After looking at the German MP 40, it is only logical to follow up with a few words about the iconic “Chicago Typewriter”, that is to say, the Thompson M1A1.

Weapon Files: Range

Welcome to a new section of the Heroes & Generals news blog, the Weapon Files. As the name implies, we will use this series of posts to review the armament available to your soldiers and discuss the characteristics of individual weapons.

Update: Server & Client hotfix

We have just uploaded the first hotfix of the Oster build. This new hotfix addresses both a handful of bugs that we’ve found over the last couple of days as well as a few tweaks.

Weapon Tweaks

  • Machine guns (M1918, MG34, M1919 & MG42): Range increased, and “far Damage” lowered
    – this has the effect that the weapons will damage enemies further away.
  • Sub-machine guns (MP40 & Thompson): Near damage buffed, range increased
    – this makes the SMGs a bit more effective
  • Semi-Auto rifles (M1 and G43): Range increased
    – this makes the weapons a bit more effective at range
  • Head damage multiplier upped from 3 to 4

Other Tweaks & Fixes
