  • weapons: Sniper Rifle "base" weapon standing accuracy reduced by 6%. This was to give it a more distinct disadvantange when compared with non-scoped Bolt-Action Rifles.
  • weapons: Bolt-Action Rifles (non-scoped) crouching accuracy raised by 5%. This is mostly to make them more reliable during online play on Invasion servers, where net lag can hinders these weapons most.
  • weapons: M1A1 Thompson heavily rebalanced for more mid-range performance.
  • weapons: M1928 Thompson w/ 100-round drum renamed to M1921 Thompson w/ 100-round drum, to better reflect how it lacks a muzzle-brake.
  • weapons: The M1921 Thompson w/ 100-round drum has had its reload speed reduced, and its movement speed from -0.05 to -0.075.
  • weapons: Type 100 SMG - kill probability raised by 6%, kill decay start time raised by 12.5%. Result is a bit more power in short range, vastly more at longer ranges.

  • weapons: C96 Carbine renamed to Type MO Carbine to reflect its Japanese nomenclature.

  • weapons: MP 34 renamed to Type STE to reflect its Japanese-contracted version. Rechambered in 7.63mm Mauser. Statistics adjusted - generally, higher velocity and lower recoil.
  • weapons: Type 2 Model A renamed to Type 1 SMG, reflecting a more accurate nomenclature for the weapon.
  • weapons: M2 Carbine and Bayonet variant - recoil reduced by 15%, kill decay start time raised by 40%, end time by 10%, walking accuracy reduced by 16%.
  • weapons: M1 Garand and Bayonet variant - recoil recovery improved by 45%, kill decay start time raised by 40%. Able to fire accurately at long range much faster, and hit harder too.
  • weapons: Scoped M1D Garand - recoil recovery improved by 45%, velocity reduced by 7% (so it matches other Snipers now).
  • weapons: Type 4 Rifle - recoil recovery improved by 17%. While still poor in accuracy compared to most rifles, it is easy to fire quick, deadly bursts with this weapon.
  • weapons: Type 44 Carbine - velocity raised by 2.5%. This improves both accuracy at long range, kill probability, and requires less leading of targets. It is a bigger boost than it sounds.
  • weapons: M1941 Johnson Rifle - velocity raised by 2.5%, recoil recovery improved by 7%. Much more efficient at long and medium ranges.
  • weapons: M1918A2 BAR crouching accuracy raised by 20%, standing accuracy raised by 19%, reload speed increased by 5%.
  • weapons: M1919A6 can now be respawned with, accuracy raised by 3%. The respawn change is significant, and the slight accuracy boost helps it keep up with the new M1 Garand.
  • weapons: M1941 Johnson LMG crouching accuracy raised by 22%, but rate of fire reduced by 19%. Overall it is more versatile and controllable, but doesn't have such insane DPS when prone.
  • weapons: ANM2 'Stinger' accuracy slightly raised. This improves its damage output at range to be a bit closer to the Type 98 LMG.
  • weapons: All 'mobile' hip fired machine guns have had their movement speed raised from -0.25 to -0.2.
  • weapons: Type 96 LMG, Bayonet, and Trench variants - kill probability raised by 8.5%.
  • weapons: Type 99 LMG and Bayonet variant - kill probability raised by 3%, kill decay start time raised by 40%.
  • weapons: Scoped Type 99 LMG - kill probability raised by 3%, kill decay start time raised by 30%.
  • weapons: Type 38 kill probability raised to match other bolt-action rifles, kill decay start time reduced by 20%. This overall improves its reliablity in short range.
  • weapons: Type 14 pistol recoil reduced by 3%.
  • weapons: M1919 HMG and Type 92 HMG kill probability reduced by 12.5%, kill decay start time improved by 17%.
  • weapons: Adjusted the commonness of a variety of weapons. SMGs are generally a more common than LMGs on AI soldiers now. Some rares are also a bit more common. HMG deploys are more rare.
