Rough Landing Mission and Weapon Pack
Allied airmen have been shot down over a dense forest and are now in hiding as they are being hunted by Nazi forces. Itâ€™s down to you to find and rescue the airmen and ensure that valuable intelligence is kept out of enemy hands.
Featuring thick woodland, a cramped mine shaft and a village to explore, expect a variety of challenges, including close quarters combat. You can brave the mission as either a solo sniper or you can co-op with a fellow spotter. Best of luck troopers!
New additions to your loadout
To help in your pursuit and rescue of the airmen, you will receive two new weapons: the much-anticipated return of the Mosin-Nagant rifle and introducing the SjÃ¶gren Inertia shotgun.
A famously powerful and reliable Russian rifle, the Mosin-Nagant has excellent stopping power and great stability making it an excellent sniper rifle at very long range. Meanwhile the 12G Swedish SjÃ¶gren Inertia was one of the first semi-automatic shotguns. It has a distinctive feel to its recoil, which can be controlled to deliver accurate shots at a reasonable rate of fire.
Included in this pack:
- Rough Landing campaign mission
- Mosin-Nagant rifle
- SjÃ¶gren shotgun
is available to buy now as the first content drop of Season Pass Two (with more to follow in the coming weeks) or as an individual purchase.
Trench Warfare Weapon Pack
This Weapon Pack gives you more devastating firepower, specifically for those unpredictable close quarters combat scenarios.
The Carl Gustav M/1945, better known as the Swedish K, was adopted in 1945, taking features from various World War 2 firearms to produce a reliable and well-balanced sub-machine gun. Firing at 600 rounds-per-minute, the Gustav provides accurate single shots, whilst also offering great control in continuous fire.
A powerful pump-action shotgun, the Trench Gun first saw use by US Forces during World Wars I & II. Fed with 12-gauge shells from its 6-round tube magazine, it sacrifices range and fire rate for extreme damage in close quarters.
Finally, the Double 1866 is a double-barrel pocket pistol designed in the 19th Century as an easily concealable backup gun that can be drawn at speed. Despite only featuring a single-action trigger and producing a very low muzzle velocity, the D.1866’s unique traits make for a powerful weapon at close range.
Included in this pack:
- Carl Gustav M/1945 SMG
- Trench Gun shotgun
- Double 1866 pistol
There you have it troops. The campaign continues with an array of new weaponry to assist you on your mission. Weâ€™re looking forward to seeing the updates to your loadouts! To read the full patch notes that accompanied this release, please .
