Can we somehow implement AT weapons to somehow also be anti-personnel? Such as the bazooka or AT rifles? Because the bazooka was first developed as a weapon to be used to knock out machine gun nests and the such, and im sure there was shrapnel from it and AT rifles as they also hit things like rocks and trees.

I agree that AT weapons should have some lethal splash damage where they would realistically have it, for the sake of diversity I wouldn’t mind seeing AT weapons with the shrapnel sleeves that were sometimes used. I have trouble believing I could survive if a bazooka round struck a brick wall half a meter from my head.

Seen blackhawk down, that dude who drives that truck got hit by a RPG, and it sticks inside him.. that was kinda bizar. But yeah i think it oke to use it as anti-infantry weapons but would not like to see unreal tournement style games. I already use panzerfaust and schrecks and espacialy AT rifles against infantrie when needed.

Is it just me or does everyone else think that that PTRS(Russian Semi-Auto AT Rilfe) is basicly an M82 without a scope? :)

I too find myself sniping infantry with the PTRS more often than busting panzers :p

You can't bust anything with the PTRS, shoot a truck, and go inside and see how much damage it does.

You can't? I've 1 hit killed many trucks with the pathetic boys rifle. I'd be greatly suprised if the russian AT rifle did worse.

both ruskie AT rifles are extremely effective. both can kill any light transport in a single shot, and can kill Pz IIIs and IVs without much trouble.

Bazooka is realistic.

In testing it was found that the round most often failed to detonate if it missed the target. It was also found the bazooka had very low splash damage to objects around it.

PIAT is basically the same but at least it had a secondary use as a light mortar.

The thing is, bazooka rounds, well, they don't seem to hurt people if they hit them. Or am I on crack?

Even if something like a bazooka/schreck/panzerfaust didn't detonate when it hit you, it'd, uh, Dinty Moore Beef Stew.

As for AT rifles, I whack and get whacked by these on a regular basis. However, what I find a bit odd is that they don't seem nearly as accurate as regular rifles. That doesn't mesh; the K98k had a muzzle velocity of ca. 750 m/s, while late model Boys .55s had up to 885 m/s. Even allowing for a heavier round, at short to medium distances they should actually be more laser-like than bolt-actions, if anything.
