Recommended Posts

Soldiers!

Halloween is right around the corner and it is time to Trick or Bludgeon! In update 1.16.1 we celebrate Halloween by introducing a new melee weapon to the Heroes & Generals arsenal!

New Melee Weapon for Each Faction

Each faction will get a new Melee weapon. A Baseball bat for the Americans and Germans while the Soviets will get a Lapta bat!

Assert dominance and show your enemy you don’t need bullets to be the boss.

A Unique Halloween Skin will also be available for each of new bats, but for a Limited Time Only!*

Uniforms & Helmet Sale - 50% OFF

In further celebration of Halloween, our players will find that Uniforms & Helmets are 50% OFF with Gold! Stand out from the crowd and get yourself some new Costumes for a bloody good deal!

Bug Fixes

We have been working hard on crushing bugs to improve the game for our players. Here is a snippet of some of the bugs, for a full list please visit the changelog here.

New Infantry Scopes had a slight offset value related to the reticle, it has now been fixed.

Adjusted starting scopes for newly purchased US and Soviet recon Soldiers. All Recon Soldiers starts with a Rank 7 scope now. People who are missing a Rank 7 scope can expect it to appear within this week.

We have deployed several UI fixes for the action game. The ingame map grid was offset when zoomed in/out, newly added lines would overlap with control point names and soldier type drop down menu appearing empty sometimes was all fixed.

We have also fixed several Flash Client bugs related to missing titles, localization and store bundles.

Better Context for War Battles

With update 1.16.1 players will now be notified about Incoming Assault Teams before and during the battle. The flow of how assault teams arrive at the start of the battle has been made more snappy and faster.

Your faction’s resource overview are moved from the scoreboard to the top of the screen and will count down every time a resource has been used. You can now also see resources located at access points and spawn areas by hovering over them.

Generals who own incoming Assault Teams will have their names broadcasted along the details of their incoming troops.

Create your own legacy as a General and let the players know that you were the one to supply the resources to push back the enemy!

Get your costumes on, hit a home run and achieve notoriety among your fellow Soldiers now!

Enjoy!

.....Why?

 

You are working on things like this, yet they are massive holes in the terrain that everyone gets stuck inside.

 

Don't even bother with the "the devs work on different things" line, you should have recruited accordingly then.

I noticed the bats require 2 equipment points but didn't have time to try them out till I had to go to something. Anyone know how they function? I assume they have the longest reach but I'm curious what their damage is like.

I grateful that the scopes are firing true again but they still hurt my eyes so much da I can't use them. Just increase the size of the circle PLEASE for the love of god, it's literally 80% of the screen blurry in exchange for 1,9 magnification.

They function similar to shovel. Maybe faster sway. Damage is surprisingly decent: from first two staged battles it was a solid 2hk in body in 100% of cases, if i hit a guy once and he killed me - he had something like 20-25% hp left. I assume it’s without heavy set.

A Baseball bat

 

But, why? Why not make actual melee weapons that where used in ww2 instead of a slightly longer shovel that is super inconvenient to use (as if normal melee wasnt already)? and literally impossible to use on moscow servers.

Soviets will get a Lapta bat

 

is that still to come or are you just trying to sell a baseball bat as lapta bat

man these bats better get replaced by something the moment hallowar ends later or I'll pee

suitable substitutes include a rifle bayonet, something much more practical, accurate and widely used that I'm sure everyone who takes hng seriously would want more

but do you anymore?

Played like 5 games with bat all moscow server (how lucky!) and  hit detection is just awful ım getting the hit sound and blood effect but no damage to enemy.

Cant wait for golf clubs and tennis rackets maybe even add polo mallet where you can use them from bikes !

First I though we would get new meeles with new abilities (like a throwable knife or crowbar which decrease the time to steal vehicles).

And then we get "better" shovels for 2EQ with blood skins.

Im starting to think that Reto is pranking us.

I like the new information system in FPS. thumbs up! So far - it´s much better.

Baseballbat for german soldiers? Really? I think I never held one, my father didn´t and all my grands didn´t. Change it to a peace of steel or a wooden batten, but a that sport thing doesn´t make sense in ww2 on german or russian side.

Where you guys see that server you are playing is from moscow? 

By ping. When teammates from moscow have 5-10 ping and i have 130 i memorise it. Every time i have 130 ping i assume its MSK.

Russian Lapta bat game is dating back to 14th century (but the bat is similar to cricket one, not baseball), and germany has seen baseball in 1936 olympics certainly. But in ww2 battle it makes as much sense as pocket pistols... so nvm.

 

Adding baseball bats is meeting Reto’s signature arcade style
