Here's the thing:
Bolt-action rifles were the most common service rifles in ww1. When you think ww1, you think bolt-action rifles, right?
99,999% of all german soldiers used them and 99,999% were white europeans.
And the only dude who's allowed to carry them is african?
Please don't get me wrong. I'm not a racist. I just find it very immersion breaking when you have trenchline full of shooters and every single one of them is african.
When i play a game about samurais, i want them to be japanese. When i play a game about african tribes, i want them to be black. It's about atmosphere. Not a single racist thing about it.
