I've been playing RTCW MP since last christmas (wham?) and I just recently switched from thompson to MP40.
Now, as I don't know the current medical status of my target when I'm about to kill, I would like to know if there's an awful lot of difference in bullet impact and fire rate between these two machine guns...
The thompson sounds impressive, but I get the feeling the MP40 is more accurate. And killing someone in a historically correct fashion (I am Axis) adds an extra dimension to the online slaughter :rock:
Hi Herr Dickmeister,
I don't have the figures on me but, somewhere in the forum's there's a thread where those two were compared with firing rate, accuracy and damage. I think it turned out that one has more damage point per bullet but is less accurate than the other.
Hunt the forums I'm sure you will eventually find it.
i was under the impression that the MP40 fired more erratically than the Thompson and the Thompson had a more straighter line of fire.
I can't remember the adress but use your search engine and look for Wolfenstein 4 dummies. They did a test and it gives pics and summary of all three machine guns. I prefer the sten myself.
Found it! http://www.kan.org/michael/RTCW/ here it is, some useful info!!! :dance: :dance: :dance:
check here it will tell you what the weapons in rtcw will do :frog:
The fire rate of the thompson is less than the fire rate of the mp40, also the mp40 has more ammo. The accuracy of the thompson is greater than the accuracy of the mp40. Well to sum it up, if you kill ppl when they are like 100 feet away or less most of the time then you sould use mp40, and if you kill them farther then thompson is a good choice. Also if your aim isnt the best thing in your build then the thompson is better because it adds more accuracy. Ok hope it helps, cya!
Another thing to remember, your weapon of choice whether Thompson or MP40 should also be based on weapons used by your teammates. Many a time I have picked up a dropped gun with ammo and have gone on to do great things (well.... sometimes, usually I just get to frag 1 more enemy)
If all you teamamtes have one type and you have the other pickings may be light.
I prefer the sten OVERALL!
All right, thanks for the help, suggestions and links....think I'll stick to the MP40.
