I was wondering how the devs are going to tackle the mg42. will it feed from the 50 round magazine or will it have 200 round belts? Is it planed to open up the feed cover and lay the belt in or will the belt tab just be pushed through? Finally will there be any fancy barrel changing animation when the weapon reaches max heat?

Two of my favorite WWII gun sounds are both coming soon: the MG42 and the "ping" of an empty Garand. Woohoo!

The MG42 was a very thirsty weapon. I would love to see other classes carry a belt or two of ammo for the '42. Not a full fledged support class, but perhaps an assistant gunner class with a couple or three belts of ammo just for the MG42.

For the Mg42 id like to see the guy holding the ammo belt (yes not how they most likely wouldve done it..but it looks damn cool :]) and i hope the M1 Garand can be reloaded half way through its magazine, and YES it can be done.

One can do many sorts of things, but is it always worth it?

That'd need a pretty neat animation to work properly in the BF2 engine. If it actualy can be done.

Sorry but i don't think you will, same thing as with the cannons and tanks and pretty much everything else, we don't see the crew, we just assume they're there.

Personally I like the idea of a deployable MG42 like what was in FH1.

I agree, but I believe that it is impossible with the BF 2 engine.
