M1928 Thompson

Recommended Posts

American paras in the game can choose between the standard M1 Carbine and the M1A1 Carbine with folding stock. They are virtually the same weapon, with the M1A1 taking up less space in your inventory. This made me wonder:

 

What's stopping the devs from adding the M1928 Thompson, basically the same as the M1 Thompson we already have in the game, just with a vertical front grip and slightly different sights. I'd imagine the way the two guns coexist will be somewhat like how to the two carbines already do.

This version of the Thompson would probably take up one more equipment point than the M1 Thompson, due to the frontgrip making it perhaps a tiny bit bigger as a weapon, but has the added benefit of less recoil. 

 

What are your thoughts?

How about an AR? For example, we could adjust the M2 so it could ACTUALLY compete with the STG outside of CQC... imagine that!

"Rename M1/M2 carbine to M2 carbine, put it into Assault Rifle category, have M1 available for Infantry (unlocks at Infantry Assault Lvl 5); Create new models and sound for both."

It would be nice for the US to have a SMG with a higher capacity magazine like the Soviets do. To avoid making the M1A1 Thompson redundant the drum magazine could have worse stability. It would be historically accurate as the handling of these guns is more awkward than the ones with a stick magazine.

No. That still doesn't make the M2/M1 Carbine an AR, it's far from it. As it stands, it's stats are closer to that of a MAX rof PPS, instead of an AVS...

And all this, coming from a german...

Well, it might be a hint on upcoming changes. The M2/M1 Carbine is currently classified in game as a semiauto rifle, and it shares code with the M1 Carbine (for example, if you change the damage for the M1/M2 the M1 Carbine damage values are also affected). If the M2 Carbine is placed on the AR category then its values might be separated from the M1 Carbine, allowing them to be realigned with those of the StG or the AVS...

Say no to bigotry! You can help ending prejudice in our community! This forum won't be a safe space for users until players stop being stereotyped based on their faction allegiance.

Absolutely. If they are actually adding the M1928 Thompson they'd better have it with a drum mag.
