benlessardIt doesnt take a genius to play 2 days on any servers TDM,DM,HQ and see the axis team get their ass kicked 90% of the time. Just look how quickly the allies weapons are getting pick-up by the axis players. I don't care about realism nor if you think the mp44 is the best weapon in the game . What i want is that people running server or those who are compiling stats please report to EA that you think the game is biased. Thanks in advance. If you don't run a server or are not part of a clan. Please don't reply. Also for those who run mods where players with rifles get only 1 nade. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ?? Benoit Lessard
The reason why in your opinion, as well as mine, that the axis are losing is because they lack a heavy-rifle parsay. The K98 is forced to compete with the Superior Garand, and the B.A.R is far easier to use than the Stg-44, thanks to it's full-sized rifle-rounds, and the M1a1 Thompson can spew out more bullets than an Mp-40. But overall, it is just up to the players themselves how they deal with a given situation, and if you ask me, more often than not, if a player were to play against a mirror image of himself on opposing teams, you would end up with quite an even match. It's all in our heads.
ok my fav setup is in s&d start out with an mp44 and "find" a thompson :wink: then u shoot across the map with an awesome weapon and use the other for close up
Mp44 is by far my favorite all around weapon
all fear the expert mp44 marksman gravity i say screw the rifles, use the automatic to snipe it is always funny to take down a sniper with an smg
I have to disagree with u on that one. First of all the mp44 IS the best weapon in the game. It can challenge 1. the thompson in close combat , 2. any weapon in medium distance when firing single hip shots, and finally when aiming down the sight its as precise(thou not as damaging) as any rifle.
Secondly the axis have IMO the best rifle in the game. At long ranges u just cover ur target completely with that ole big sights and Wham ure sure to hit ur mark. I know this discussion is mostly a matter of personal taste but im sure ur thesis about the axis losing 90% of games is wrong. I think they win over 50% (and against the brits it must be way over 80%).
Technically, all the bolt-action rifles are exactly identical except the Lee-Enfield, and that differs only in clip size. They all have the same damage, firing rate, and reload speed (including the Enfield when reloading only one 5-round clip). However, the KAR98K definitely has the best sights.
The scoped KAR98K has a better sight, because it doesn't block what you're shooting at.
Many peple prefer the BAR to the MP44, but this is mostly because of the easy-to-use sights. But the MP44 is all around a better gun, especially firing from the hip.
I find the Thompson to be the best smg, and the PPSH can do a lot too, but the MP40 is also an excellent gun. Many people hate it probably because it does not work like most other smgs, but rather is slower firing and more accurate, making it a little more of a standoff weapon. This does leave the Axis with no truly dedicated close-quarters weapon, which would explain why PPSH's and Thompsons are such popular pickups. They fill the gap in the Axis armory. Functionally, the Sten is about identical to the MP40, and it is now much easier to aim in the 1.3 patch (i guess they fixed the position of the model so the sights more accurately reflected where the bullets go, like they did with the Mauser in 1.2).
Axis weapons (in pre-1.3 patch days) were pretty darn good. The mp44 (though it definitely isnt as accurate as a rifle, but has only slightly more bullets spread) has a wierd disadvantage that it kicks more with a short rifle round than a light machine gune BREN and a fully auto rifle WITH a full length rifle round. Getting used to it is a piece of cake tho. The thompson is definitely better than mp40, do doubt about it. you can spray bullets or just tap the trigger for the same accuracy for medium range, no biggie. The sten just plain sucks. Its accuracy in auto is garbage and its still hard to aim with. The BREN (even though i think its very unrealisticly accurate) is easily the most accurate of automatics. almost as much so as a rifle. I think the Nagant has the best rifle sights, and is the best scoped rifle with the 5-round reload. Its really easy to take out scoped snipers with that beauty :D. Though, i wouldnt dare try it in real life... The 98k is second best, but not far behind. its iron sights are actually pretty good at letting you hit a target, if its not mostly hidden that is. Hard as hell to hit someone with only half his head out of a window. Mp44 hipshot spread is horrible, i used to always aim down the sight with auto, and did very well. now all shots go 6 ft to the right and even hit the wall right next to me. Patch screwed over autos :(. I always preferred rifles anyway :nodding:
I don't spend enough time here

To be honest i think you havin a laugh benlassard you just callin to be flamed. The german rifle is the best gun in the game maybe not at close range but when my enemy is runnin toward me he ain't gonna get close. It is like the best gun in the game so accurate and powerful.
Yea dude i dont no what ur talking about the axis weapons are great.
