would be cool to have a setting where some magazines that aren`t or other things like grenades are randomly given out so you wouldn`t have a full kit as was probobly common.

No.

Well, maybe, but it would kind of be unbalanced, they can't make it THAT realistic.

Its an interesting idea, however I foresee players commiting suicide to get a better loadout, or thinking the game is bugged and being frustrated when a new mag in their gun is only 1/2 full....

this is easily possible with a mutator. I don't think the devs need to implement that.

Nah.. magazines picked up in the heat of battle may or may not be full, that is already in the game. Salvaged ammo and magazines was probably be reloaded between battles, so unless you really want to add that last magazine that doesn't get filled it's not even that realistic. A soldier knows he has, say four full mags and one half empty, and would probably remember where he keeps the half empty one. Gameplaywise, it would be annoying to pop in a mag only to find out it's almost empty, because you can't control which one you grab.

I more meant that (especially in stalingrad or other long term conflicts) not everyone would have 2 grenades, there main weapon, and a set number of magazines and maybe wouldn't have enough time to refill mags or they were recently picked up.

Interesting suggestion.

I would have to say no thought - at least for some magazines not being fully filled.

It can be interesting for the online (co-op right) campaign though. :)

semi-off topic...

I prefer no ammo sites on map.
Players only have the ammo allotement at start of game, or scrounge during the game.
Its just far to easy for players to run over an ammo site to get quick ammo on a seconds notice. Ammo is giving to you at start of a game, and not the middle of one ( especially, if games are only 15 minutes long at most ).

it's not realistic. at all. stop thinking that making the conditions dreadfully desperate for soldiers is a representation of reality.

Rolfrocket has a point.

In a battle on the scale of Stalingrad, I am sure there where skirmishes in which they found themselves fighting again before they could refill their magazines.


But I do not like the idea from a gameplay standpoint. At least not for player VS player gameplay.

Been ages since my last post but anywayz....

I would like to suggest to have the option to refill your magazines.
Empty an almost empty magazine and put the the bullets in a "heavier" but used one.
During the fight that is.

P.S.
People who don't like nadespammage shouldn't ask for realistic loadouts.
Atleast the Russian units had bags filled with nades, to the brim. That is like having 10 handgrenades at the start of a round.
I wouldn't mind though.

the only thing that I would want actually is to make from 2 half full magazines in your pocket one full magazine. Firearms for HL1 had such a feature.

I think that should be op to the mapper to decide and not randomized for each soldier. As other comments mentioned, the ammo was evened out before battle.

I don't see topping off a magazine being one of my top priority when in a battle.

I would much rather have an easy way to give/revive an mag from someone. Kinda like how the mg is resupplied in OST now. Another good option would be if you hold your reload button you throw away a mag instead of putting it back in our inventory. The whole reason I am reloading is so i'm not low on ammo, why would i want it to running into that situation later. :p

I have experience in reloading a PPSH during a "battle" (Reenactment). I had 3 stick mags, I had used one so switched to the second one which would not feed properly, after 2 shots it would jam or not even fire at all. So i used up the 3rd mag, then i was left without any usable ammunition so i tried individually taking out rounds of the jammed magazine and reloading into the working ones. I can tell you this is not a easy task when your Starshina is barking orders at you to move forward. However i never once went into a battle with fully loaded magazines, the spring gets really really compressed towards the end and becomes difficult to load more rounds in. This is very apparant when using the drum mags, i only managed 60 before the spring was too tight.
