I know Pzshrecks had the gun shield but many times when you zoom in the shield completely covers up the crosshairs area. Its gotta go (from the zoom screen - not from the weapon itself).
I like the shield, the only time it covers up the crosshairs is when your prone, but i dont have a problem with it since tanks are big targets.
This has already been discussed in the forums. In real life, bazookas and shreks were never EVER used lying down. The only correct position was kneeling, with the launcher positioned over the shoulder. Anything that helps discourage such stupid, cheap, unrealistic tactics is A-OK in my book.
How is it stupid, cheap, and unrealistic?
ive seen a video of a soldier using a panzershrek prone, holding it at an angle ill go and look for it
well actually it is unraelistic, simply because its almost impossible to fire prone
Of course you can fire it in the prone.
I hardly fire the weapon from prone, always from crouch because then I can get on moving faster than from prone. But sometimes, it does require to go to prone to keep yourself alive in the heat of battle. And those who knows me better knows the fact that I love AT in FH. And shreck is the one for me that I want to marry. And the shield doesnt bother me one bit when I am ending the days of the tankers. :)
