M1 Garand Sniper?
« on: 09-09-2018, 01:09:54 »
Would it be possible for the dev team to add an M1 Garand sniper rifle into the game at some point? Perhaps this could be used as a rare pickup kit on a late-war map.

The M1C and M1D did not see service in WW2 until very late in the Pacific campaign (literally in the final days of Okinawa).  As such, it is totally inappropriate for the mod.

I think some super early field testing batches of M1C could actually reach the front in very small numbers but haven't seen a lot of action. It was adopted in 1944, but issues with accuracy prevent if from replacing Springfields in the sniper rifle role. But I've read memoirs of a German sniper who encounter a G.I. with a "self loading rifle with a scope mounted on the side of the receiver". It was the day he surrendered tho :D

If we will ever get a super late war map with USA vs Germany, I wouldn't mind seeing a single scoped Garand hidden somewhere as an easter egg kit, we have historically inaccurate STG44 ZF after all. I would rather see a field modification of G41 with ZF41 scoped first, now that weapon is cool, and we have maps it could be used on  ;)

Or even a G41 with a Russian scope:

I'm all for obscure shit like that as long as it is kept within the borders of historical accuracy

And I still say it should be burned with fire.
