Why not just give the PPSH the stick mag? I know that the Drum and the stick were both widly used, but I could see the drum go and be replaced by a stick. That would balance things out pretty well I think. Since the PPSH would be out of bullets in a second.
raslinI think you misunderstood what I said. I meant its not hard to kill someone who is using a PPSh-41, using an MP-40 or Kar98 yourself.
Oops :o My bad, English is just weird sometimes ;)
Well, with an MP40 it's not as hard as with a rifle, but still hard enough in CQC, due to the low damage even if I do hit. It wouldn't be hard if lag didn't prevent the hits, but with the PPSh'er bunnyhopping and running and bouncing like crazy, even a ping of 80 is too much. Mind you, I do get the bugger every once in a while, but not often enough. I do understand the fact that FH devs can't do anything about this, and that it's an engine netcode limitation, but it's annoying. Just gotta live with it :uhm:
Ensign RilesNo, it just means most people are the type who play to frag. They obviously can't shoot with a rifle because of the reason that they are only using fully automatic weapons for faster kills. Hate to break it to you, but I feel sorry for those wielding a PPSH, they aren't that good, especially in real life. Should be those people complaining, if anyone.
If it bothers you that much, go create a mod that spreads peace and happiness. No "unfair" things in the game then.
'OK Guys, we've got a tightly packed trench and house to house situation, let's get some PPShs.' 'No, we can't, PPShs are for people who need our pity!' 'Um, ok, all spawn assault!' KoolGuy is no more Fighter is no more KillerSnake is no more
So what everyone has basically said, if the pph should fall into the hands of someone who isnt a bunnyhopper (someone who say...crouches behind cover;) ) it would totaly pwn anyone. I know how to use rifles and everything, but when playing as russia it is just like a free ticket to first place to use the pph. I can easily take out people with rifles and m40s. I sometimes feel guilty after using it because it really doesnt take much to kill someone with it :uhoh: . To me the pph is like the kt of weapons, and i think it should either be limited (kits) or make the recoil bigger/less damage. I know realism and what not but this is a game and something needs to be done. Phew:beer:
The russians were the faulty ones not there weapons, to make things more interesting especialy for the cry babys, russians should spawn with only handguns or a weapon with no ammo clips/bullets. Like on galactic conquest how units only spawn with weapons that they were supposed to have during that campaign. Perhaps a big club of some sort can be incorporated.
The russians rarely didnt have enough weapons for their soldiers. They produced more weapons then anyone in the war. Stalingrad was a desperate battle. Most others werent like that.

The only thing that shows me is that the PPSH has a high rate of fire. The recoil appears to be relatively light, but that has nothing to do with accuracy. Small, or even slight deviation in sight alignment will produce big misses... just because the weapon appears to not move very much does not mean the weapon and the firer are hitting the target.

oh hey an idea from a movie being posted on fh imagine that. that may have been the case for stalingrad at some point (world at war says that while the russians were mounting their massive counter attack, stalingrad only got enough supplies to keep it from falling) but after that, the russian army was hardly some piddly-ass force that rarely got a rifle or ammo for it.
judge reinholdthat guy isnt running and jumping around like a ninny and still hitting the target. he could in fh of course. what is this video supposed to prove? if you stand still and aim, the gun shoots where its pointed at? thanks for the revelation professor.
Indeed. In the video you can physically see he has a hard time controlling it after a certain point, and it starts to overheat as well. If someone posts a video of a guy running with the PPSH and going full auto for the full drum then I'll say the PPSH is fine
All you see in the video is a man firing a ppsh, emptying the mag at full auto. You can see that the gun overheats and the he has problems controlling it. Now, what you don't see is where his shots went...and I wouldn't be surprised if they went everywhere. ;)
Btw, most people on this board probably have never fired a real gun in their life so far, yet some of them want to tell you something about realism when it comes to firearms. Please don't. :)
