New Battle Pass: Second Season of 2024

On May 15th, the new Battle Pass season will begin! But today we are ready to show you the BIG guns!

MAIN REWARDS OF THE SEASON

For gold orders in this season, you can get machine guns for all countries, and these weapons will mostly have a low Battle Rating.

RPK 1943 (USSR, BR II)

One of the first works of the legendary weapons designer Mikhail Timofeyevich Kalashnikov - an experimental machine gun created to replace the DP machine gun.

Low and predictable recoil, comfortable rate of fire of 500 rounds per minute.

Magazine size is limited, just 15-rounds, but the quick reloading time compensates for it.

Knorr–Bremse MG-35/36 (Germany, BR II)

A machine gun of Swedish-German origin, developed in the interwar period. At a time when there were still not enough MG-34s for everyone, the MG-35 was used by the elite units of the German army. Lightweight, simple, with a 25-round magazine and good open sights - you will surely want one of these.

Hotchkiss 1922 (Japan, BR II)

Japan was not shy to import and capture promising weapons from other countries during the wars with their neighbors. This machine gun, for example, comes from France, and it features a feed strip holding 30 rounds. You can always clearly see how many bullets are left in it and how many you loaded if the feed strip was not full.

Chatellerault M24/29 (USA, BR II)

This French machine gun was developed to replace the obsolete Chauchat machine gun in the interwar period and was intended to be better than its predecessor in every way.

The capacity of the magazine was increased to 25 rounds, the rate of fire to 590 rounds per minute, and the machine gun generally became more reliable and easy to use.

In the new season, worthy pieces of machinery with unique camouflages also await each country - as always, you can get them for gold orders.

It’s long overdue that we have white tanks appear on snowy maps and yellow in the sands.

That IS-2 will stand out like a sore thumb in Berlin but could work nice somewhere in Finland or Courland.

Hey James, it’s Saturday and you’re working? Thanks for your hard work.

Damn, I was going to hold off on playing this season, but I want this portrait.
It would be perfect for my “Night Witch” deck.

We should all be thankful for James’ hardship of having to deal with the nagging nerds on the forum all by himself on weekends when the rest of the staff is on vacation.

Thank you James. :pray:

Great additions! But I would have personally preferred to have the Chatellerault be included in the tech tree for a future French faction/sub-tree in-game. It feels very out of place in the general arsenal for the Western Allies. Looks like I will be saving up my gold weapon orders for some future BR V weapons. But the Hotchkiss and the Knorr-Bremse looks enticing.

Well, basically everything outside of portrait already leaked thanks to test server.

Btw. I am very disappointed we are not going to get any new outfit piece or so in BP.
It’s like taking a step back.
