y-yeah can't fucking w-wait..
although you are right, that´s what is making the game so enjoyable for me.It feels like war in every sense, fighting your ass off to get the upper hand over the enemy, no matter how cheap or unhonorable you are.
I usually follow the stream of troops when I get lost, or I use the tactical view
>no sherman crocodiles
So much cool shit just left to rot because muh killing floor
If Indoors and as a rifleman yea, unless you run into a SMG or a LMG you should be able to stab some panicked rifleman.
i honestly just wish I knew where the objectives are. Every time I open my map to know where I'm supposed to go the autists that have been playing the game for years and know exactly where it's at just shoot me in the head.
Yes and no
Rising Storm as japs yes because you get a health bonus but you're loud as fuck
Americans get no bonus
Russians and Germans do get a suppression bonus but it's very slight. You may want to consider it on Germans because it makes your player hold your weapon with both hands which may fool Russians into not shooting you but this applies to teammates as well and you may get TK'd
If you're new to the game and playing rifleman FOR THE LOVE OF GOD RESUPPLY MGS AND USE HMGS
HMGs suppress the fuck out of enemies, spraying in their general direction can stop an entire push.
So I get up to a point with enemies inside and check my map before throwing a grenade. Map shows no teammates in front of me. I throw a nade in and TK my guy.
Is there anyway to avoid this besides getting good? How behind is the map view when you check it?
You're one of those faggots that thinks you have to run around praying and spraying into cap zones and meleeing rather than finding cover and moving across open fields with support fire from your brothers arentcha. Fucking CoD players.
Hide behind something before you open the map. I use the map a lot to make sure where I am, and also to make sure there are no friendlies in the direction I'm shooting or throwing grenades.
Just comes down to game sense, the map is buggy like the rest of the game. Rule of thumb if you're not leading a push don't use grenades. Don't try to bounce them either until you have a lot of hours. Also avoid using them underground or in bunkers. Your assaults will try to push in after and you'll either kill them or blind them with debris.
Yes as many times as they need ammo but if you'll have to visit a resupply depot each time you do it.
>If you resupply a MG before they've shot it do they get extra ammo or does it go to waste?
I believe they get an extra grenade or something. Doesn't hurt, regular infantry are never at risk of running out of ammo.
In terms of how long they take to overheat
Just don't hold down M1 and change barrels often.
The C96 reload is bugged until 25. Not entirely sure what causes it but I've noticed it happens less if you don't fire it rapidly.
If using the DP-28, it takes about three magazines of non-stop fire to overheat it. Burst fire with German MGs. Similar principles with American and Japanese MGs. Keep in mind that maps have temperatures, so barrels will overheat faster on summer maps like Spartanovka than winter maps like Winterwald.
C96 takes stripper clips before level 25. I never understood why you couldn't load it like a bolt action, but it gets magazines at level 25.
my bad, the name confused me
thanks. I was trying to get the 34 to level 3 to see what happens so I have problems with that usually
>Keep in mind that maps have temperatures, so barrels will overheat faster on summer maps like Spartanovka than winter maps like Winterwald.
that´s so neat. I love those kind of details
34 overheats like a bitch but outside of that it's the overall best MG. The DP's magazine, accuracy, and firerate is piss and the MG42 while having the best stats gives away your position and can't single fire.
oh pleas. The MURICAN don't need any more advantage than the M1 grand, Thompson, and fucking Flamer.
There's a mod on the workshop called Pacific Armor that adds Japanese tanks to the game. I think it'd be interesting to give Japs these weak ass tanks on some maps, while Americans get no armor but simple AT weapons like satchel charges.
I got level 34 C96 and can concur it happens more often when you fire the last few rounds in rapid succession.
You really got to remember how many rounds you got left, what I did is to kill max. two enemies with one clip if possible then fire it empty slowly and reload.
It gets whole hell of a lot better and fun to use when you get the 20-round mags.
but I enjoy driving my tank at 5km/h anon also
the fucking t-34 are way better than the Panzer IV with that round slope amour, while the Panzer is a fucking BOX

fucking retarded nigger shits subhuman I bet they were all level 50s
Well that how it was irl.
T-34 shat on german panzers.
Only few of the german tanks that had 50mm had subcaliber ammo that could penetrate around 110mm of armor from 500m but that was not enough for T-34s front armor.
The long barrel 75mm gun used in PzKpfw IV and Stu40 could penetrate 140mm of armor from 500m in 90 degree angle.
They fought under Kursk (the biggest tank battle in history) and overall over a thousand of those were built. An exceptional tank, really, but in the end they were too difficult to mass-produce and repair, yes.

Hand grenade kamikazes to a group of Yanks are the best as are booby traps. Booby traps are so damn underused, like with most FPS games people dont look up or down enough so even obvious one on doorway can net a kill. My personal favorites are bush nades above all, go play Hanto as a Jap if you've played it enough you know the common routes people do take and use bushes as a cover to hide so go into one of those bushes on main ways and plant a nade in there, unless they crawl little by little towards it they are not going to see it.
I don't have a laughing reaction image, so here's something RO2 related
it's fun isn't it
I can't even play RS with bodies that last 20 minutes because so many Japs die in one place that my frames plummet
From what I can remember you edit FXLifetimeMultiplier in your ROGame.ini. Can't remember what the default value is, but if 1=60 seconds then 10 gives you 600 seconds.
I don't have much OC
I didn't TK in that webm though, surprisingly.
>Pop-pop's one with revolver
>gives a dose of 14.5mm to the other
That's pretty brutal
Sniping in this game is so satisfying.
I think its because of the realistic scopes, why don't all games do this?
And I didn't even post the webm I made, I'm on a roll
I'm so bad with sniper rifles. I can't hit shit with them, especially at range. I should just stick to rifleman.
If you bought RO2 before the bundling, you can play RS as a rifleman only and with no XP gain. If you bought it since last February (I think) you'll have both.
Does your toaster happen to have a Nvidia GPU and GeForce Experience? I found that changing settings with that gave a larger performance boost than changing settings in game.
The infantry combat in that is such a step up from PR. I can't wait for them to get half as much content as PR in.
I'll probably be dead by then
>want to play ro2
>get banned from the single active server for being called Joseph Stalin since it's somehow offensive.
Why are almost all communities on PC terrible?
It's good, but although I shilled it on here I don't recommend you get it yet until they atleast introduce vehicles. It's a huge part of the gameplay, dealing with a supply line that hasn't been implemented yet. Still, I love it so far.
Use the power of belief!
if you're going to lie at least make it a believable lie.
>squad babby upset no one is posting in his daily shill thread
Nuh uh, I haven't made a thread in at least a week. Although I kind of like that you recognize me
Yeah i'm sure, except even in the webm's posted IN THIS THREAD you can see people named hitler and stalin and shit.
I've never seen any server give the least shit about profanity or whatnot.
You were probably being an epic little memer screamer telling everyone to gas the kikes or something.
Wow get a load of this faggot
Move cover to cover. Don't stand in the open. Flank often and flank well. Be accurate. Trust your instincts. Move with your team. Cover your squad mates.
Fucking CoD kiddies, I swear
>I've never seen any server give the least shit about profanity or whatnot.
Have you ever played on 2.Fjg? They would ban for profanity. I remember one guy joined with the name "Bad Motherfucka" and he was immediately told by the admin that he was being kicked. He never even said anything offensive.
They were a really popular server in the US, but some of their members could be pretty grumpy. They just started a new server bu it's dead on arrival, something about them having a shitty map rotation.
>They would ban for profanity
They did? I curse like a sailor when I was in squad lead roles and I never got kicked from any kind of server. I do the same on their Squad server and no one has said anything.
40-1 servers are shit, once they banned a guy simply because his username was SS Wiking.
He didn't even use the chat, he was simply playing the game.
The admins are Jews. If you go to the forums you can see them talking about banning the MG42 (even they realized it would be retarded though) and trying to make the allies win more.
You probably played on merrils, ruskie servers, or twb, 40-1 and 2FJG make a big deal about it.
I also saw them ban a guy for having 88 in his name. Also wasn't saying anything and was being a good team player.
>tfw you're playing on team that has a bit of communication but are getting bogged down
>feel the moment, make a snap judgement call, yell really fucking loud and pass it on to the rest of the team
>they all go along with it
>win the fight, win the match
There is no better feeling to me than the joy of leadership, and I fucking love when people go along with my shenanigans
I love you people
PR, Squad, and RO2 are all fucking excellent for this. Sometimes even BF4.
>defending as japs

People do better when everyone's giggling and having fun.
Keep being that Russian TL that spends more time complaining about vodka than his team.
As long as you do your job
I think 40-1 hasn't banned me yet for insulting communists and the bolshevik beast because I usually end up first in the server playing as squad leader
It's pretty neat how even in video games morale can play such a huge part, isn't it?
You can actually learn some pretty useful interpersonal skills playing the vidya if you go in to it with the right mindset.
If any of you guys are interested in tank combat or just general squad shenanigans add me
Be warned I play slavshits almost exclusively
If Anti-Matter has any sense, they'll have the M44 available for Viet Cong. I would use nothing else.
This should've been ingame

>do nothing but sit next to a radio all game, calling out enemy troop movements, asking for arty marks etc.

Never had a game quite like it.
Playing tank as russian is basically cheating, the T-34 can only be destroyed from front with an extremely accurate or lucky shot while the PZ IV gets blown up pretty much anywhere in one hit even with AT rifles, the T-60 is fucking invincible, even worse than T-34
You'd have to be retarded to die in a russian tank
I pity those who have never experienced the definitive Red Orchestra experience
>everytime this starts playing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm0AetWjTAQ
get fucked japs
Who could be behind this post?
The T-34 does really well if all the tanks in the match are being crewed by single players because at that point basically every tank is operating with a "two-man" turret so to speak, where every gunner is the commander.
The Pz4 really shines when you've got it fully crewed with a commander calling out targets for the gunner. That extra awareness is huge and lets you shit on T-34 while they blindly look around through their parascopes trying to find what's hitting them. Not only that, but I find the turret is pretty easy to pen on T-34, knocking out the gunner really messes them up because you need to bring someone up from the hull to crew it.
It's more or less like real life.
The 29th servers are still populated and they've started updating the mod again. I believe you can actually get it without owning the original RO, for anyone who's interested.
western front a shit, though.
This was years ago when I played. Very Fun.

Fucking PTSD Simulator.
I play slavs because they tend to be losing, not because I have a boner for the T-34. The optics on the P4 are much better and I find it easier to protect the weak spots. You have to have a hill to protect the turret ring on the T-34 but any waist high cover will do for the P4.
>the T-34 can only be destroyed from front with an extremely accurate or lucky shot
Aiming at the corner of the turret ring is a guaranteed crewman kill, and you can hit the center of the treads to do engine damage.
>PZ IV gets blown up pretty much anywhere in one hit even with AT rifles
This is a matter of P4 commanders being bad at their job, it's not that difficult to keep the P4 alive even on bridges. Learn to play AT and you will know how to counter them.
I will give you the T-70 though, that tank is 100% bullshit.
The PZ IV gets fucked up by AT rifles 150 meters away even from the front.
If there is even 1 competent AT rifleman you need to stay at least 200 meters away if you want to live.
Um no? You cover the engine block and the only other options he has from the front is the MG/Driver seam which requires him to be either at your 2 or 10 o'clock and be ground level which severely limits where he can hide. The only exception to this is the PZB which can penetrate the commander's sight but if you're paying attention and constantly suppressing them this shouldn't be too much of an issue.
>Americans who complain about mortars and traps
>they are using the flamer
it's a tough game to come into as a newbie. have like 90 hours played, I started to get some feel for RS by that point. Regular Stalin campaign was mostly too hard, just because you don't know the details of the maps, where there are passages and holes to shoot out of and such
Yeah learning the maps is a large chunk of being good at game. Following your SL around and listening to him makes it a bit easier though, if he's any decent he'll tell you where to setup and what angle to watch.

Seeing this thread made me start it up again.
Fuck i love this game. Best WWII shooter of all time imo.
If Rising Storm 2 is this but maybe a little more polished, it'll be fucking amazing.
I wonder if it'll have dynamic music as well.
>If Rising Storm 2 is this but maybe a little more polished
you'll be lucky if you can even get into the main menu.
Any one want to share some tweaks that may give you an advantage over other players?
I know putting foliage on low and shadows on low can help you spot other players.
Avoid being prone in grass unless enemies are close because far away enemies won't render the grass you think you're hiding in. Bushes never disappear I think.
I just found this video about AT rifles. really helpful
alsi I´m leaving this here
>people who play the same class every match
I'm not trying to tell them how to play the game, but I dunno, mix it up a little bit? Let someone else have a turn with the MG42?
If you can get a couple of assault guys to flank left into that side door, you can clear it out no sweat. Problem is actually getting there.

I prefer regular RO2 but yeah, Rising Storm is pretty great. I get total sensory overload on maps like Iwo Jima when there are just dudes dying all around you, artillery going off, smoke making it hard to see, etc. You either just gotta stop and drop and wait for it to clear or just push through and pray you make it.
I've seen people get some crazy OHK on tanks, but all that shit flies out the window when I get AT. I just end up hitting it in multiple spots hoping for an explosive *ping*
>getting a CP perfectly dialed in with your knee mortar
i have a problem like that on most modern games.
graphics are so good that the gore just blends in. The blood splatters aren't bright enough, the color filters dull it and the mess of bodyparts isn't as eye catching.
Please play Natural Selection 2 instead
We have gorges
>knee mortar hits just after forced respawn
What if I like RO, RO2, and Insurgency?
Its kinda depressing no one will ever get to use troop carriers
Used to get many iron crosses for driving the boys behind a cap and purging it of commies
troop carriers are mostly pointless because the battle is decided by tanks and infantry can eat a dick.
no one even tries to climb on them so drivers don't bother waiting either, there's no safe place to unload and the villages are stupid small and exposed so there's hardly a point in clearing them out and trying to dig in.
the two extra fields to cap make it pointless to fight for the villages.
M1919A1 best MG, it's the only one without fucktarded magazines or ladder sights messing up my view. DP is my 2nd but the magazine is so tiny.
I almost feel like they should put the BAR in the Machine Gun role with a bipod along with the M1919 and maybe add the Thompson as an option for elite assault/engineer, and add the M3 Grease Gun as another alternative for elite assault/engineer/squad leader.
Johnson rifle would be awesome too. I loved that thing in MoH:Pacific Assault.
my main problem is that most people don't own RS to begin with so the fights are bolt action rifleman 90% of the time.
they should really open another role for the guys who won't buy, they won't be convinced until they try assaultman.
>That terrible victory music
