Periscope Gun/s

Recommended Posts

Contraptions like the one in the picture was far from uncommon in WW1 and seeing as the game is true to history in other senses it'd be cool to see. Either to have like the one on the picture positioned at certain points or an "Infantry Engineer" be able to deploy one in a location of his/her choosing.  Or going with the "Springfield 1903 Guiberson" that was pretty much your ordinary Springfield rifle of the time period but had been modified with hinges amongst other things to allow the rifle to basicly fold out to a form of Periscope gun and then folded back into your ordinary rifle to move with ease around the trenches for positioning. It would be a really cool addition Imo and it'd be something that I have never seen in any other WW1 game before ever.. Most likely would the version built in the trenches by the soldier themselves be the easier thing when it comes to the actual coding etc, but the 1903 Guiberson is something not alot of People today know about.. So it would be a cool bit of history playing out aswell as the rifle in itself is pretty ingenious :P

Thought it'd be a nice addition to the game. Though all and all it seems like a real awsome game! :) 

Best regards!

Sounds like an awesome addition but i can see it being kind of OP in some situations. One thing id rather see is the drip rifle. Maybe as a recon NCO or standard NCO deployable for distraction.

Remembering Bill Scurry, whose 'pop-off' rifle saved the last Gallipoli  Anzacs

Judging by just how stupidly difficult it is to place down the command telephone, I don't think you'd be able to find a spot to put the periscope rifle in the first place.  I doubt this thing would be would be just able to walk around with.
