  1. Aw, I genuinely thought Mr. Ferguson would be entertained by the Galilean sights on the MP-18(i). That sighting system seemed to fit in with the menagerie of weird that game has on offer.

  2. Jesus of Nazareth died for the remission of sin, including yours, was buried, and rose form the dead 3 days later. "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believes on me has everlasting life." John 6:47 If you simply believe this applies to you and trust Jesus to save you, then you have everlasting life in heaven.

  3. Actually bf1 is not only about the 1914-1918 ww1 period as many people think, but also streches into 1920 with the addition of the russian civil war maps. The battle of Tsaritsyn as it has a map iin the game ended in 1920.

  4. No, he is wrong. As a WW1 veteran and member of the Association of WW1 Veterans, I can confirm that both sides of the war used exclusively the Hellriegel, the Automatico 1918 and the Obrez pistol.

  5. If they gave the SMLE the right reload it would have a faster reload than the Steyr-Mannlicher M.95, which is meant to be a rapid-fire rifle

  6. The MP18 bayonet looks like it’s something that might’ve been made in the field by some semi-skilled craftsman, its just clamped onto the barrel jacket and tightened with a wingnut, so not based on any real examples but it’s certainly not out of the realm of plausibility

  7. I still find it kind of weird that they couldn't just make a glass lens, put it on the gun, and paint a red Dot on it. I dunno how effective it would be though, or if they even had that idea.

  8. I always used my bolt-action in BF1 without a scope. The BF1 scopes felt too cumbersome to me. But let me tell you, people did not like me killing them across the map with a un-scoped rifle.

  9. The developer are actually very aware that the game is not really genuine WWI. One of them says in a video that this is their vision of what the war could have looked like. In the game menu you can actually read about each gun and like he says in this video, a lot were experimental and/or super rare. Great video! I’m just a gamer but this game has really helped introducing me to some really cool history
