Currently we have a problem of too many automatic rifles in the hands of the most common soldiers.
Guns like FG42/ II, MKB42H, AVS36, AVT40, M2 carbine (lol) should be its own class of soldier.
These guns will come with an automatic rifleman squad, and these guns will only be able to be used on this class. 1 Auto rifleman can be put into most squads.
Axis: FG42 and FG42 II
Allies: M2 carbine
Axis: FG42/ FG42 II
Allies: AVS36/ AVT40
Axis: MKB42H - changed to auto rifleman only.
Allies AVT40 or AVS36
Has no SF rifles.
These rifles are basically the best guns in the game and on the battlefield, there is no reason common troopers should be running around with these weapons. Especially in a game like enlisted where you have a squad of AI and it getting wiped off in a few seconds and 1 mag is a bit extreme.
The same is for Stalingrad, having an assault rifle as an engineer weapon is really stupid. Engineer II now is basically the “Wunderclass” of enlisted. Think about it, has infinite ammo, builds spawns, can build AT guns for AT work, can build an MG for defense and can have a SF or AR to wipe squads. That is a bit extreme.
Classes like Trooper, Radio operator, flametrooper, bomber - would only have access to BAs and semi-auto weaponry.
How the auto-rifleman squad should look like:
Actual Falschemjager squad, for allies also paratroopers.
