BAR vs LMG42

Postby winterflaw » 04 Dec 2018, 21:52

What are the differences between the BAR and the LMG42?

The BAR seems to take up one slot, the LMG42 two?

When I have PE assault grenadiers, I think I can eqiup with three BAR - I've not done this yet, but I can certainty do two and there's an upgrade slot left over.

If I give them an LMG42, they can only take one BAR, I think.

I get the feeling the maximum would be three BAR?

The differences are many - damage per bullet, rate of fire, BAR can fire one the move, LMG42 cannot. Generaly speaking, LMG42 is better than BAR. If you compare 3xBARs vs 1x LMG42 hard to say. I think it is more of a question of what you want to use the squad for. For stationary support the LMG is better, if you want an attack squad the BARs would probably be better but there are lot of factors that influence the outcome here.

Also, I wanted to question, why Rifleman has 2 slots, while IS is 3?

PE Assault Grens get unique abilities between which you can switch on the fly:

Slowdown (like G43s but better)
Vehicle Suppression (can be used to save your ass ina pinch)

That's why. I think.

the slowdown ability is from the g43 rifles. nothing to do with the lmg42 upgrade.

i think the lmg42 upgrade should cost 85 ammo for both units.
and if normal grenadiers dont have vehicle suppression, they should have it.

LMGs that Assault Grens have can do BOTH.

Seha is right - the slowdown ability is provided by G43 rifles, the Vehicle suppression is provided by LMG. If you don't get both upgrades you won't have both abilities.
