Also, one thing I don't understand in Wolfenstein is why MG42 is always mounted... It is often carried and then operated by 3 men with stunning accuracy. In fact, to make the guns accurate in Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, the MG42 would have to have almost double the firing rate of the American counterpart (675 vs 1200 rounds per minute) and ridiculous accuracy, 1000 m away, firing rounds that have the muzzle energy of a rifle at the time. In comparison, the STG44 is the nearest awesome weapon to the MG42. The STG44 fired an intermediate round between Parabellum 9mm and the Mauser round, but it is the world's first assault rifle, and had the ability to hit 600m away with 30 rounds per magazine and a faster ROF than a MP40. The mp40 is no slouch, but its effective range is only 70m with 500 ROF using nooby 9mm rounds. In comparison, the MG42 was so destructive, the Americans had nothing to counter. They even made training videos so people could recognize the sound of a MG42 and not be scared shitless.
I actually tried tweaking Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory guns to be more realistic, but it made the game very unbalanced. The Nazis were destroying everybody. By current calculations, a MG42 will have 300 rounds per belt, fire across the entire map with near-infinite accuracy, and two-hit-ko any enemy in sight.
And yeah, I learned all of this in one day while trying to tweak Enemy Territory. Any comments?
