The most common asked question in the servers is "how do I open the landing craft's door?". How many times did I answer it...

few small facts that make u a better infantry:

- aim for the head (fast kill) or body (easier to aim)
- pistol needs 2 bullets, medic 4 bullets to kill
- depending on distance switch between, burst, single burst and single shot
- assault guns are extremely effective if you dont move while shooting and use single shot
- 1on1: move in circles (w-d-s-a,w-d-s-a, etc)

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

If you want to know the hitpoints and damage for each weapon you can read the table: http://www.realtimerendering.com/erich/ … ngrid.html

According to that table, 2 shots at head from mp40 medic gun (15+15) kills. You need 4 shots at the body to kill and 6 shots to the arms/legs.
I'd say for infantry action learn to adjust your aim to your ping.

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

These tables are amazing! It seems zero can kill inf with one shot only (even when hit limbs), but SBD-T always need more than one shot. I never knew that. Why wasn't I interested in such details?

I find this table a bit less confusing... but when you shot with a mp on long range you always need more hits. And sometimes you get hit with a sniper and it take about 95% hp. You don't find this in the table.

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

If you are shooting through the gap in the HQ of Stalingrad in the medic room and a K98 hits you, you will not die always. But the only thing he can hit is your head. Sometimes you will lose 95% or something and there's just a half bar left. I mean not every headshot = dead. wink

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

"If you shoot the flak gun at someone, remember that the gun itself is to the left of you, so you must aim more to the right as the target gets nearer."

now i know why i find it hard to kill infs with a flak gun tongue

ye, didnt know that?

in tuia's link u can find a table with %-damage of each inf weapon  -> scroll down a bit (http://www.realtimerendering.com/erich/ … apons.html)
but i thought this %-damage is pretty known to everyone here?


Dont know if you already know that...

... its possible to knife through that gap in the HQ at Stalingrad?
... your zook-shoot is more powerfull when you walk forwards while shooting? ( it's less powerful when you walk backwards)
... you have to aim left beside your target when shooting with a tank on low range?
... tank dont explode at 0%? At 0% they burn, with -4% they explode.
... burning tanks are loosing hp?

Just a few facts, that i remember right now.
There are many hints more. Tell us if you know more smile

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

With medic you need 2 headshots, the same as with a colt... don't know what you mean with 4 bullets.

The other things are well knows, just wasn't sure about the zooka. Got to try it out.

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

yeah, i remembered on some tank battles, my tanks had freaking -18, and i hadnt enough engineer...

also you can destroy anything with aa gun, that makes aa gun the strongest weapon in whole game big_smile?
and idk how many ppl know this, if u snipe someone in head at long distance, dont aim for the head or helmet because ur bulelt will go above his head, aim somewhere for his chin or even neck if its very far ( do this movement in last second of aiming, just before you shoot)

Re: Battlefield 1942 FAQ

It's true with the sniper... but it depends on the distance. The more far you away, the more you need to aim under the head to give him a head shot. If you stand you need to aim even a bit more underneath. I was sniper pro, but now i don't snipe anymore. big_smile

Hmmm... don't you see it when you change the view? Because I saw as well something like - 17%... but maybe from a mate.
