Hi, while watching Ts4Ever's Omaha Beach video on YT I realized each of the two concrete bunkers across from one another overlooking the road have an MG34 in each of them, while on my game these are missing. Were they removed at some point for balance purposes or is this just an issue with my game? These bunkers are basically useless without MG's. 
 
Thanks everyone.

Is that in singleplayer? The map might have a different loadout there. In multiplayer they should both be there.

It's in Create Local>Coop which should be the multiplayer loadout, I never play on the singleplayer tab because there's no slider to change bot ratio there. I've done the repair option yet makes no difference, no MG's in either bunker. Actually there are only 4 total fixed MG's on the whole map. One MG42 Lafette at WN71. Then at WN73 there's one MG42 Lafette, one bipod MG42, and one MG34. Then there's the pickup kit at WN72.

I think that still has a different loadout because it includes bots. bots can't use certain vehicles/ guns etc for certain reasons.

Unfortunately, the bot support for BF2 is little to none so FH2 doesn't have the best single player experience.

Coop is going to be a different loadout.  I don't think the actual "singleplayer" mode works at all in FH2.
they probably removed the MGs because the bots either don't use them or are OP with them.

Then the two in the bunkers are the only ones missing. The MP version doesn't have more either, except those. I don't know why they are missing, SP development is mostly done by gavrant. There is probably some technical issue with them.

I always thought that coop has exactly the same loadout as singleplayer.

I see, thanks for the replies everyone. I've yet to play Omaha on MP. Never played it on USA side either. I never thought of having different loadouts for MP/Coop but it makes perfect sense. 
 
Ts4EVER: I like your YT videos. Been playing FH2 for ~2mo. On MP I always get shot by player(s) on the other side of the map (No doubting some use the widely available BF2 cheats), so I try to learn gameplay tips from videos. I prefer playing infantry, but ultimately I'll have to get armor as on foot I'll be MG'ed 1000m away. Favorite kit is (obviously): VG1-5/Panzerfaust and/or VK-98/100m Faust. Personal thanks & phenomenal work to dev. Seth Soldier on all his weapons. Never ever thought I'd see those two firearms in an FPS. 
 
I like artillery as well. (Currently learning to mod, first mod I'd like to attempt: playable 15.5cm GPF. Talk about awesome.) Bots of course are unable to spot & players rarely spot on MP though I haven't played one of the pre-planned campaigns yet, I imagine that's different (looks extremely fun). I've attempted spotting for myself, usually the spot (I think) expires by the time I suicide/return to gun, or I try to spot for other players then hope someone responds. Sometimes on Coop I'll see bots smash the hell out of the enemy esp. w/Granatwerfer 34. Not sure how they do that, I assume simple aggressive shelling! Plus they see thru fog/underbrush/etc. 
   
I have several questions & curiosities, all of which I've searched the boards for, some of which were answered, others only partially. Many of the resulting posts date back 4 to 8 years so I don't know if the info is still accurate. Going to start a new thread for those. Anyway that's all the rambling for now, once again huge thanks for the replies.
