Awesome screenshot taken by Commander Wacky
today I've got some new info on weapons, gadgets, 5v5, additional game modes and ToW challenges for you. Quite a few expected nice data mining potential due to the patch size but unfortunately this rule of thumb doesn't work at all.
Fun fact: all traces of the Chapter 5 vehicles (U.S. and Japanese) were removed and replaced by colors like "cherry red" or "mustard yellow". It seems like Dice is getting more careful with their data…
Let's get started.
New Weapons & Vehicles
Jungle Carbine (alternatively "Rifle No. 5 Mk I" or "Lee Enfield No. 5")
Bolt Action Rifle
The Rifle No. 5 Mk I, was a derivative of the British Lee–Enfield No. 4 Mk I, designed in response to a requirement for a shorter, lighter, rifle for airborne forces in Europe. However most of its operational use was in post-war colonial campaigns such as the Malayan emergency – where it gained its common nickname of the "Jungle Carbine". (Wikipedia)
Ithaca Model 37 Stakeout
Shotgun (5v5 Competitive)
Note: A new variant of the previously data mined "Model 37" shotgun. It seems a bit out of place for WWII as far as I can tell from my short Google research but I am no weapon expert so feel free to add info/corrections! (Picture source: "Crossfire")
Historically, katana were one of the traditionally made Japanese swords that were used by the samurai of ancient and feudal Japan. The katana is characterized by its distinctive appearance: a curved, single-edged blade with a circular or squared guard and long grip to accommodate two hands. (Wikipedia)
- Dodge Scout Car (Chapter 5 / no further details)
- Dedicated Game Logic for "Pacific Dogfighting" (Chapter 5 / no further details)
- Visual "Sulis" variations for existing vehicles (Firestorm)
- JU52 Cockpit (probably for Grand Operations / Airborne)
- Sprint is limited so you can't just run around at full speed all the time
- Logic for impaired hearing and sight (caused by Flashbangs for example)
- A captain (one per team) can revive squad members (like medics)
- Unique commando skins/parts for weapons (I found for example a rear sight for the Lee Enfield No. 4 of "legendary" quality)
Exclusive 5v5 weapon decals
The 5v5 mode will feature a ranking system:
- Bronze I-III
- Silver I-III
- Gold I-III
- Sapphire I-III
- Diamond I-III
Minor Gadget Updates
- RMN-50: Hold the fire button to cook the grenade in the barrel, causing it to explode in the air.
- RECON PLANE: The Recon Plane will scout all enemies in the direction you're facing.
- HIGH ALTITUDE RECONNAISSANCE: Spots both teams. No further details.
Other Game Modes
Grand Battlefield (internal name, 8v8, 3 rounds per map)
A new "meta" game mode which is a bit of mystery to me. Two teams (8v8) play three rounds against each other, the only available map right now is Devastation and it features some kind of tournament logic.
It uses the following game modes:
- Frontlines (which will introduce MComs as objectives)
- Team Deathmatch
Squad Conquest Tanks
8v8 mode and will probably launch under the name of "Tank Superiority" (previously data mined).
Official description: "Tanks against tanks in all out war: Hold the majority of the flags and eliminate enemy tanks to win."
Upcoming Maps for Squad Conquest
Consists of two phases (recruitment and elimination) and seem to feature a time based shrinking combat zone.
- Recruitment phase: Build and defend Radio Towers to receive requisition and reruits for the final phase of the game mode. Enemy Radio Towers can be destroyed. Get close and interact to arm bombs or use anti-tank explosives and artillery to damage their steel structure.
- Elimination phase: Kill enemies to deplete their recruits. Stay alive and revive your team mates to retain yours. First team to kill all enemy recruits wins the battle.
New Custom Map Rotation: Tank Battles
Tank Battles is a tanks-focused custom map rotation with shorter tank respawn timers, consisting of Conquest and Breakthrough played on large maps.
Tides of War Chapter 3: Challenges for Week 10
Operation Mercury was the name for the German assault on Crete as part of the Axis invasion of Greece in 1941. The British, Greek and ANZAC garrison of Crete put up a hard fought defense assisted by the Royal Navy.
Play 1 round on Mercury.
German codename for the large Battlegroup West, Comet made strong gains with a massive deployment of paratroopers and glider-carried Fallschirmjäger.
Capture X objectives.
Mars, German codename for Battlegroup Centre, assaulted the town of Rethymno and its airfield but the garrison of Australian and Greek troops as well as Cretan police held on for over a week.
Complete 1 squad order.
German Battlegroup East, Orion, had some initial success in their assault on Heraklion but were unable to secure it.
Down, kill or assist in killing X enemies.
The town of Maleme fell in the first day of the battle to overwhelming German airborne troops. The Royal Navy held off Axis attempts at landing reinforcements by sea, but in doing so suffered heavy casualties from the Luftwaffe. ANZAC counter attacks on Maleme were beaten back by dug-in Fallschirmjäger supported by the Luftwaffe, and they eventually withdrew to the east.
Deal X damage while in an aircraft.
The day before the battle, a German reconnaissance plane was shot down over Rethymno against orders by Australian garrison troops using a Bren gun. A code book and reconnaissance photos were found in the wreckage.
Deal X damage to player-piloted aircraft using LMGs.
LIGHT BUT HEAVY
Following the Allied eastward retreat the Axis landed some light tanks and other vehicles to support the ensuing pursuit and assault.
Deal X damage to enemy infantry using ground vehicles.
Exhausted and facing overwhelming German reinforcement the Australian garrison surrendered, though some evaded capture with the help of Cretan civilians and eventually escaped to Egypt.
Resupply yourself using a supply drop reinforcement 1 time.
As western Crete fell to the Axis the Heraklion garrison were outflanked and forced to withdraw south. Numerous holding actions were fought to buy time for an evacuation to Egypt, while constantly beset by Luftwaffe raids.
Heal yourself for X health.
Kill X enemies using the MP40, Kar98 or MG34.
Win 1 round on Mercury.
Kill or down X enemies using the Lee Enfield No.4, Bren Gun or M1928A1.
Kill or down X enemies in one life.
THE BLACK UHLAN
German heavyweight boxer and former world champion Max Schmeling, nicknamed the Black Uhlan of the Rhine, fought in World War II as a Fallschirmjäger including the battle of Crete.
Kill X enemy using the Fallschirmjäger Dagger.
