It is a bit tricky to use first, but once you masterd it


Anyway,More and more do i come to like the epicness that is know as the ZB26. I dunno about its stats, but for long range fire, the ZB26 is just better. Much better sights and i think the more powerfull round.

However the BREN seems to be still the boss in close combat. 30 rounds and i think less recoil do the job.

Still both are great rambo guns. I rambo Brenned/zb'd on lebisey just now,  45 kills and 10 deaths.

Twice did i ran out of ammo though!

what is the use of good sights on the ZB26 when you have a magazine obstructing your view the whole time? It often happens that i dont see the enemy that is "behind the magazine". You can solve that problem by looking around but its annoying as hell, because you are moving left and right - thus you are easier to spot and need to aim longer.
i use the bren and ZB26 most of the time while lying on the ground anyway, they are simply not usefull for me while standing, because it takes so long to zoom the weapon and you are slow as hell/cant run.
also the FG42 is quite a good weapon... but compare 20 rounds to 250. thats 1250% the mag-size xD.

btw.: i would really like the mg42s sound to be changed, maybe its correct but atm i think its rather silent and unimpressing.

True but i can storm inside a building and dominate stuff with a Bren/ZB26. you CANT do that with MG42

P38 or Browining HP is enough :D
jk. IMO ZB26 is better than Bren. Bren feels like it has more kick (firing animation etc). gun is all over the place, and sights suck.
stats are the same but it obstructs the view while firing, thats why ZB is better. And 20rd mag isn't that bad since its 1s1k.
Both are awesome when deployed though.

Words of wisdom! FG42 ftw!

But now the rains weep o'er his hall, with no one there to hear.
Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,

The FG42 is great, but not as a light machinegun. The rate of fire is too high, the magazine too small, the recoil to heavy and directed to the side. But in semi-automatic mode it makes a great rifle.

that is the point    for a semi auto rifle it does the job, infact that was it designed for actually.

The trick in FG42 is truly to use it in burst. 2-3 round bursts are accurate enough. It is not as accurate as a bren or ZB26, but it is handier as a semi auto rifle
