Yay, new 0.65 is out jippie. Nice job bla bla... But.. WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DEVS DO with the K98? What where you thinking? My tool of the trade, my beloved whore of blood, my sweet evil dream in the flesh has been mutilated by the devs. And, if I try to let her fire her precious load of Riflenades(all riflenades are screwed up now, not only the k98's) it takes her HOURS to spit her lethal schrapnel payload from hell towards my enemies. I had to resort to my MP40!!! for Crying out loud on Arnhem...WHY???? I burried my beloved old K98 and her spawns of hell (riflenades), and I am surrounded in sorrow, and utter hate...(maybe good for killing more @ pubs).. But seriously, why is the riflenading virtually impossible and why is the k98 screwed? no more neat sound, and my Gawd she looks as if she's starved...

Riflegrenades weren't an all out used anti infantery weapon in the first place. In reality it takes much longer than 1.5 second to attach a rifle grenade and I'm very positive not every soldier got one.

I seemed to notice something about the rifles that changed, maybe it's the damage, or maybe it's something else, but it seemed harder to kill someone...

Ahh nice,the nurfing of the riflenade. To be honest with you i like it like this,ppl just relied on that rifle grenade and some maps felt like rocket arena 3. I think its great ppl cant just run around a corner and nail you point blank,then run away uninjured :)

Riflenades where my allies especially on Arhem. I love them as I love all other things I charish.

I understand that it is commonly used method of killing amongs the "so called skillless n00bs" but I just love them. And It is a shame that they are not to be wielded the way as they could be wielded in the past. It somewhat grieves me that it takes 3 years before it finally can be fired. Especially on CQB maps, like Arhem they are very usefull, but now, it's useless, since I use it as a last resort/quickresponse. Too bad our ways part here.. And Lightning, I was talking about the appearance and the sounds of the rifle, it's changed, performance wise it seems to be shooting slower, but all bolt action rifles do. and Whilst I am still in the whining department....the PPSh is still not changed, but it seems to me that the mp40 has increased in power..which is good.. Still, with a darkheart I carry away my dearest riflenade and her mother of all rifles to put her to rest for eternity. Sorrow and darktimes shall remind me of their departure. My beloved k98 and your spawn, I loved you and have left nothing but good memories, an ode to you my tools of destruction... Oh K98 you look so dreadfull after this virtual liposuction... (Gay ass rhyme I know)...

nothing has beeen changed on that weapon besides the skin/model and the sound. it shoots like before, but if u have noticed, ballistics are now integrated in inf weapons also. so u have to aim a bit higher at long distances.

i personally like the new sound very much and the model is great also. the skin is good, but i agree, it has a little "plastic style" look like the new enflied, but that can be changed easy ;)

Ooooh, it must have been the ballistics then. I aimed for a guys chest, he was pretty far away, and I got the hit indicator, but he lived, turned on me and shot me with his thompson... I must have hit him in the leg or something...

No sirr, it is nice you see the leather strap I agree on that, but for the rest she looks like a malnurished (or however it's supposed to be spelled) piece of battered wood with a metal tube on it:uhoh: . Really, I am bitching about it so much cause I really loved that gun. It has sort of guided me through matches, public games and she's never ever let me down. So, I sort of beg to the Devs to bring her back to her old state, in the next release. Still, the rest kicks ass, since even I can fly planes and stuff...but I still mourn for my beloved lady...

I really like it how it is now. The old model was getting quite boring, seeing that it was used by all WW2 mods at the moment. I especially like the changes in the riflenade. No more it is a last resort weapon. I found myself a lot times in .61 firing my 5 round clip empty, choosing the riflenade and finishing the enemy with it. Good to see it was changed.

I love the new model honestly, altho it looks a bit small. The new sound i like too.

And the delay in the riflenade.. man i love it. I used it as a n00b weapon in the past. camping out around a corner to await an enemy's apearance. But no more!

There is no way riflenades could be fired that rapidly irl, anyone watched BoB?. I love it!

What the hell? I think rifles shoot faster than ever! You can even pop off another shot while the bolt pulling sound isn't even at 50%! And for the rifle nades - thank god! They were becoming a n00b weapon and unrightfully! 0.65 is great about rifle nades I just hope the rifle ROF will be slowed down JUST A BIT.

PS: The darkened Garand skin looks awesome!!!
