right now,the American AT grenade launcher is far far superior than the german one,in almost every way.it is semi auto,compared to bolt action,more open sights for tank hunting,(from what I can tell) better penetration and damage.the AT grenade launchers right now are just the normal ones with a glorified few centimeters of armor penetration for an entire extra order,and are higher tiers,so it will be fighting PPSH’s and drum Thompsons,when you could have FG42 for FG42-2 on your soldiers.yes,grenade launchers are good,but they are terrible when you run out of grenades,and you might be better off having a different gun instead of an extra grenade launcher.
Both have 50mm of pen with the exact same post-pen damage
That’s the beauty of faction’s having unique content. The Americans have their toys with all their pros, cons, strengths, and weaknesses; and the Germans and everyone else has theirs
Ain’t yours a fricking FG 42?
here is the thing,you get the M2 carbine instead of the FG42,which starts in full auto mode,so your AI use it like that,and it is generally better in close quarters,basically an SMG for riflemen and engineers.the FG 42 is a good weapon,but has a lot of recoil and only a few magazines by default.
BR ≠ tier in tech tree
it will likely be higher BR though,and fade out of usefulness with the other rifles in the same BR
all I want is a semi auto GL for the germans,is it too much to ask?it shouldn’t affect the asymmetrical balancing in a major way if it does happen,just another copy paste gun with a spicy stick on it
German can use the FG-42 with grenade launcher from the paratrooper squad.
As far as I’m aware Germany didn’t have a semi auto grenade launcher besides the FG-42 and MAYBE the Mkb, I’ve heard the early ones could potentially mount the grenade launcher, but I’d have to look into that.
Even then I don’t think there’s any problem whatsoever with the grenade launchers we have in game. Both sides have a grenade launcher, then that’s that
the western allies have blatantly better GL’s,SMLE grenade launcher and M1 grenade launcher have more ammo and cleaner sights.
yes,but that was an event squad likely not returning,and it’s just an FG42 with a grenade launcher,it’s kind of obsolete when you are high tier though,having MG42s and STG44s,and not to mention the Vickers squad was way way better than that squad,just like the thomson 100 against the krieghoff FG,and the argument “oh but the FG is better at range” yes,but you could still use the weapon you got at medium range,and long range just pick up a sniper from the box.
Does this game have a semi-automatic anti tank launcher? Aren’t they all fired and loaded once? I think you’re talking about rifle grenades.
Rifle grenades are never as powerful as full automatic guns like m2 carbine and fg422. So it is not that big issue. Personally I think the usage of grenades should increase difficulty to prevent abuse. It is abnormal that even a monkey can easily kill with a rifle grenade now.
I meant guns like the M1 garand that have a GL on it,still have to manually put the blank in to fire it,but when you take the launcher off it is semi automatic
Be a man. Use bullets.
Oh so what do you want then ? A MG45 with 250 rounds firing grenades in full auto mode ??? FG42 GL is still the best GL weapon in the game, M1 Garand, even with a GL is still clearly not as good as any of the weapon that you mentionned (MG42/STG…). Also can we then talk about how bad the M1 Carbine is, even with the GL?
wehraboo coping please move on with your lives
True. Semi automatic rifles with GL is one of the characteristics of Normandy.
I really was “… what am I reading just now???”
Rifle grenades launchers are identical for all factions when they’re installed…
… And are for clowns anyway.
he is pretty much bitchin that the US put rifle garands on their semi autos while germany really didn’t do that
