During the gameplay showcase they said that the weaponry will be: Semi Auto, Submachine, Heavy Machine Guns.
So yes, no bolt action rifles. I don't even know where they got that idea from, that they had semi autos in WW1. They DIDNT. And the first submachine gun was introduced in 1918...
Sure, some light machine guns could be hip fired, but they wouldn't really work as submachine gun.
So yeah, like I said a few weeks ago. Someone decided that there cant be a game where you can not spit a million bullets every second, so they made this shit out of it. I knew it.
