Hey guys, can you tell me, if you know after all, if theres any info about winter map for RO2. Yes I saw winter urban map but I ask about winter forest map, like in "Band of Brothers" Bastogne. If you remember this was epic battle. Ye it was fight between US and Nazis but Ill be happy to see similar forest map in RO2.

Quick questions. (Tried to post a thread, but said something about permissions.)

Will heroes be usable in single player or skirmish? If so do they need to be unlocked via multiplayer or in any other way?

The MKb 42 (StG 44, or the weapon the German hero has in a screenshot) have a 3D telescopic scope like the sniper rifles? Will hero weapons be usable in singleplayer or skirmish? Will the scope be of a 4x magnification?

Will the FG 42 be included, if so will the ZF 4 scope be attachable as well?

Will the Gewehr 41/43 be able to attach a ZF 4 scope?

Can anyone achieve hero status? Or will only a select few of the multiplayer community achieve this goal? Or is it some will earn it sooner than others?

An AVT-40 (or SVT-40) with what looks like a 15 or 20 round magazine can be spotted here:

cut.


Perhaps it is an upgrade for the AVT-40 and/or SVT-40.
Nice find!

Finally looks like we have all 10 map names:

1. Spartanovka
2. Red Barracks
3. Station One
4. Grain Elevator
5. Russian Apartments
6. Pavlov's House
7. Commissar's House
8. Gumrak
9. Red October Factory
10. Fallen Fighters

Will the FG 42 be included, if so will the ZF 4 scope be attachable as well? No FG 42.

Will the Gewehr 41/43 be able to attach a ZF 4 scope? Only G41 in game. Actually there isn't any scoped version of the semi-automatic rifles.

Can anyone achieve hero status? Or will only a select few of the multiplayer community achieve this goal? Or is it some will earn it sooner than others? Dunno
Answer up :rolleyes:

There were certainly luftwaffe troops in support of the stalingrad campaign. But they weren't fallschirmjaegers(spelling?) so I doubt many luftwaffe support troops carried fg42s
Actually, I believe there was a single company or so of Fallschirmjaeger in Stalingrad.
