Copenhagen – Reto-Moto introduces the powerful US M1941 Johnson LMG, the German P38 Parabellum handgun and other exciting additions in the Churchill – Inglorious Guns Update for the WWII MMOFPS Heroes & Generals.
The US M1941 Johnson Light Machine Gun is a fast and effective weapon with a high rate of fire and a short reload time. It was created at the same time as the German Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 and the two teams of engineers coincidentally came up with similar designs making, them equal opponents. The US M1914 Johnson, as a light and reliable weapon, was first given to the Devil’s Brigade for their special operations behind enemy lines. Fun fact: this legendary brigade and their reckless fighting style even served as inspiration for Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds.
The German faction now has the P38 Parabellum, which is widely regarded as the first modern handgun and pistols today are still being built on its design principles. This outstanding handgun is known from Inglorious Basterds as Oberst Hans Landa’s personal pistol. The top tier pistol has a high damage output, which makes it even better than its iconic little brother, the P08.
The US Infantry, Paratroopers and Recons have received new uniforms in an experimental camouflage pattern and which comes in three colour variations; ‘Hunter’ Fall, ‘Hunter’ Spring and ‘Hunter’ Swamp. This will help soldiers on the battlefield not to be spotted easily – an advantage not to be underestimated!
The ‘Churchill’ update is named, by popular demand of the community, after the British soldier Mad Jack Churchill, also encloses various weapon tweaks and improvements. The Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 can now be fired while running and general changes have been made to selected weapons in order to improve the overall gameplay experience and balance.
