    Its better to level the guns out to 10 to get a lot of them and then stack the full 4 so you're not leaving every game.

    I have only one gripe as far as the new patch... the killcam follows the player way too long and sometimes when you’re being revived right after being killed you will have to have the kill cam actually finish before being able to play again.

    I love it, but when are we going to see the M1 garand, the BAR, M1903, Carcano? We're missing some influential content of WW2

    I've watched the Firestorm trailer, and at one point it says 'Game Engine Footage'. I don't believe this is actually true because at no point in the trailer do I see any of the soldiers bunnyhopping and ADAD spamming, getting stuck jumping though windows or sliding around on the floor whilst prone. At one point, the squad leader gives hand signals that are clearly visible to other soldiers, yet at no point does he scream 'ptfo youdum noobs' before a racist/sexist argument breaks out alongside suggestions to uninstall or press ALT-F4. The trailer also displays a OHK melee takedown... that's so unrealistic as at no time does the soldier swipe ineffectively at the enemy, before said enemy turns round and OHK's them with a pistol.

    I'm super happy to see that Chapter 2 continues to make use of the broken "...as a squad" assignment criteria. These only work for the person who actually performed the action, the rest of the squad never gets credit. In Chapter 1, my friends and I all had to take turns as squad leader getting rocket kills and calling in reinforcement vehicles. Looks like we're going to have to do the same again so we can all call in ten (!!!) supply canisters each.
