Is it just me, or did they remove the MG42 ammo drum things? -1 reply

I'm just wondering. Back in 0.65, when you manned an MG42 (that was in a window or something like that), there was a little green circular box next to it which was the ammo for the MG42. I think it's called a drum or something like that. Now in 0.66 though, there's nothing next to the MG42 - there's no green box next to it. It's missing for me. Anyone else getting this?

Ya, I think they just changed it. I might be wrong here but I think that when Mg42s were mounted like that the bullet were handfed or it was just a lose chain (the green box holds the ammo on the handheld ones so it doesn't get in the way I guess)

I think it's supposed to be like that. Afaik the drum magazine was meant for those MG42 you are supposed to be carrying around, being much more compact and less prone to get tangled to shrubs.
