No iron sight zoom...Oh baby....If only we had this in FH2.

Then my eyes would suffer even more and people with big screens would have even more advantage than they currently have.

Sure I do! But how long does the Beta last? I probably won't be able to try it until Thursday...

Taking down a whole katana charge with a BAR was all kinds of cool. Luckily I managed to flank them... half of the enemy team charging at you makes the 20 rounds seem a very small amount ;D

I did something similar with the flamethrower. It is satisfying

Got into the closed beta, too (thanks to Mopskind) and while I´m usually not a big fan of the Pacific War, I´ve got to say that it´s quite a nice mod, sorry, expansion pack.
The atmosphere is pretty good, sounds are really nice and it has its own unique features that make RS feel different than RO2.
Fighting in dense jungles is a new challenge, that takes some time to deal with. And when I was bayonetted by a Japanese who charged me out of a bush only a metre away I felt pretty scared! Same goes for the flamethrower which is a pretty dreadful weapon tha results in some really disturbing sound effects...
Unfortunately I can´t say much about graphics, since I´m at my parents house this weekend and can only play the game on my 3 year old laptop.
There are some minor things that annoy me though, most of which seems to come from RO2. So far I don´t really feel like spending money on the game, mainly because last months bills habe been a bit high, but fortunately the beta will run for some time and maybe the game will become even better than it already is.

Yes now the rains weep o'er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.

I thought the flame throwers just looked great. When I ran into the trench beside a fellow marine, and watched him blast flames over the parapet whilst a squad of Japanese soldiers poured over it on fire, I was laughing with sadistic satisfaction. The jungle fighting makes it extremely intense, targets are hard to spot. I played most of my two rounds so far as a USMC Machine Gunner, and I found myself spending belts of ammunition into wood-lines with no real targets, just a faint idea of where they were. The Arisaka is pretty terrifying, unable to see the enemy, you hear it go off and the next second you are dead.

I think they are doing a great job so far, and if it continues like this it'll be a great expansion to RO2.

Yep that was the Arisaka Type 38 alright. The 6.5x50mm was not hard hitting, but produced little sound, no smoke or flash and was dead on accurate


However if it did not penetrated a major organ or bone, it was "Just a flesh wound"

does the japanese soldier also get the type 99 rifle?
