Light Machine Guns

[dropcap2]I[/dropcap2]t’s official: the long-awaited M1918 will be added to the American weaponry in the next update! Meanwhile, the Germans will now be able to carry a single-drum version of the MG34 which can already be found equipped on vehicles (StuGs, SdKfz 250s, sidecars and Kübelwagens).

[dropcap2]T[/dropcap2]he great news is that you will be able to unlock these machine guns fairly early in the game! As you can see on the fragment of the character progression tree below, you will unlock light machine guns when your [highlight2]Rifle Assault[/highlight2] combat ribbon reaches level 6. That is to say, all you need to do to unlock the M1918 or MG34 is to keep using your M1 Garand / Gewehr 43.

Stay tuned for more Oster features!
