The deadliest weapon would be the mortar -it killed the most people of any single weapon of WW II. It is a bit hard to use in FH (for me at least) -was it that hard to use a mortar in actual combat? Perhaps it was even more complicated than FH. I am curious to know -was there a mortar crew attached to each company for the Allies and Axis powers? If so maybe a mortar guy should be developed.:cya:

Most... tasteless... post... ever...
Hey he asked for the deadliest Weapon,and come on i beg you its not the Mortar.
Atomic bomb? Not realy. I mean it did killed more people in one impact than any other but it wasn't used like normal weapon. It was political show-off plus makeing fanatic japanese people surrender. What Cpt Butterpants meant, was the normal war weapon used by soldiers, not by a politicians decision. I would say that deadlyest weapon of WWII is...rifle. Most of soldiers were equipped in rifles, every nation had it in use, it was the most accurate hand weapon, in many cases it was the first thing to fire in combat...
Ok,Ok the most deadly one must be the one that killed the most.So its got to be the russian Winter.
But russian winter is not a weapon, is it? We can say it was one of the best allies for Russians since they were resistant to it, Germans not... Anyway I'm still voteing for rifles, the "russian winter" didn't killed people in North Africa, Pacific or Western Europe. Plus I'm sure that there were much more casulties from conventional weapons than the winter in Russia.
Ok then the most People must have died by the Mg42,i think.They where everywhere on every Warscene.And if youre including the fact that German killed more Soldiers than any others the Mg42 must be the most deadly weapon in WW2.
There was no MG42 in Pacific war. And if you will look at the real Mg42 abilities you'll see that it's powerful but not so easy to operate weapon. Operator could shoot with automatic fire unly up to 5 seconds to not melt the gun and make it inaccurate. Also soldiers were careing more for the lifes than you see it in game. Generaly mashine guns were support weapons used to cover soldiers by surpressing the enemy. Ofcourse when GErmans were pushed into defence they started useing it in fortifications but still attackers were given support too. Only rarely operators had a clear shot on bunches of soldiers, in this case it was many battles on eastern front, fiew small ones on western and Omaha beach where it did a real slaughter together with mortars. So I still say that weapon wich killed most people in WWII was rifle.
Dead rather than Red!

I guess there was more than one mortar crew in each company, but I dont want it to be a spawnable class.
As for the most deadliest general weapon...I will have to say the invention air dropped bombs.
