 I didn't quite get all the info on the weapons as my dogs were going crazy at the time - something about a shotgun/rifle combo that sounded very interesting???  I wish I had heard it all - with my bad hands for close-up work I've been a Trench gun guy so this may be my new tool.

Did anyone get more/better details on it?

 Some Gamers are older, some are younger.  At 55, a week or a month isn't going to kill me (I hope, anyway).  Sure, of course I'd love an on time release, but if it doesn't release on time there is a good reason why as no one likes to fail.  Better a late release than a buggy release.

No ETA - I assume due to some many people bitch when one is given...

 If you upgrade the weapons the springfield gets outclassed by several other rifles. Almost all of the rifles are balanced in one respect or another against the others. For instance, the Mosin (fully upgraded) has the best long range killing power and straightest flying bullet but is slow between shots and only holds five rounds. The springfield is slightly less in many regards but shoots a little faster. The KAR98 is close to those two but sacrifices some power for better handling. 

If you upgrade the weapons they each end up having their own place in the lineup for however you prefer to play. Some, like the swedish mauser or mannlicher, seem to pale a little compared to other choices, but each has it's own unique feel and is viable. 


Reading many of the complaints it is clear that the complainers haven't grasped at the depth involved here. And upgrading the weapons is meant to be a challenge. Forcing the player to perform certain actions challenges them to develop new tactics/gameplay styles. The freedom is that you don't have to do it. The upgrades are not essential, but significant enough that I think they are worth the challenges. 


I've tried every gun in the game and all are viable. My usual choices are Mosin for long range pure sniper PVP, KAR98 for mid-to-long range general purpose, Garand/Gewehr for any urban map.

 Wonderful post~!  Finally, someone gets it!

I've yet to upgrade every weapon, but I have completely upgraded every rifle so far, and I completely agree with the above post.  I've since upgraded from my PS4 to a PS4Pro and finished my first campaign on cadet (I know, I sux - am new at this type of game, but love it) so did not transfer my saves at all and started afresh.

New Campaign on 'normal' mode this time, and will only upgrade my three favorites (hint: the Springfield is not one of them.) 

While the game is not perfect, I myself am having a lovely time~~

 Rebellion could include a suppressed Springfield M1903 which was used as early as WW1:

http://olive-drab.com/od_other_firearms_suppressors.php


Sound suppressors were first introduced to the United States in 1909 by Hiram Maxim, the son of the inventor of the first practical machine gun. He dramatically improved his design in 1910 and silencers became popular amongst back yard sport shooters. The first historical record of the use of silencers by the military was an expedition by Black Jack Pershing in his attempt to capture Poncho Villa. He reportedly brought two M-1903 Springfield rifles equipped with Maxim silencers. There is also evidence that some of these suppressed Springfield rifles were used in WW I, however the nature of the trench warfare did not give any significant advantage to the use of silencers.

 Well, there we go!  If the game people want realism, here is their way to justify it AND make us happy both!

Sniper rifles did not have silencers during World War II. Most sniper rifles of that era were not purposely design sniper rifles, but rather converted battle and hunting rifle. This made any attempts to suppress their noise difficult and especially considering the ammo used was full size supersonic rifle cartridges. For similar reasons silencing machine guns was not followed up and it is questionable whether that would offer any tactical advantage.



The Germans did not show much interest in silenced weapons, but the British Special Operation Executive did. they developed the Welrod pistol with an integrated silencer for use in assassinations by their operatives and agents.  They also produced the best suppressed weapon, the De Lisle carbine. This was a specialist carbine and not a sniper rifle. it fired subsonic pistol ammunition (45 ACP ROUND) and had a effective range of  (200 yards or 185 m) it's Maxium range was ( 400 yards or 365 m)  a shot between 2 and 4 football fields long, not bad for the 45  m1911a1 pistol round but it was very quiet. It was used in a few covert SOE operations.  So why add a silencer to a weapon that did not have silencers back in that time frame. 


 

Quoted for truth and logic, however - sometimes in a game truth and logic needs to be tossed for reasons to make the game more enjoyable!  I believe this to be one of those times.  I too fall into the camp of those wishing for a optional "DLC" true suppressed sniper rifle so that those of us that want it can buy it.

 1. There's an "App", a program (as I like to still call them), on your PS4 called Capture Gallery. You can find it in the Library under Apps or on your Home Screen (also, this might be a great opportunity to make some order on your homescreen using folders for games - like "Action", "Shooter", "Adventure", "Relax" - and one for Apps you often want to use - like Capture Gallery, ShareFactory, Headset Companion, Spotify, Media Player etc.)

In Capture Gallery, you can view all your captures and screen shots, ordered by games/apps. But you can also use a rudimentary editing feature to trim your videos - done as I explained above: Select the Clip, press Options and then Trim.

2. For importing videos from your USB, you need to do that through Sharefactory, see here (I've never done that, though, but watch the whole thing, the beginning is kinda at the end):

 Thank you so much~!

It's a pity the PS4Pro won't allow uploading from USB back to the default locations again though ( for sharing, etc) but at least this can get stuff back onto the console!

If I had time to spend, between RTFM, Google and YouTube (reading is my friend) this would all be cake, but now that Spring has sprung, I won't have time for a while.  Am already feeling game withdrawals...

 Sharefactory is kinda complicated, as in too many options and very confusing menus.

+1 to the above!  You lost me, how can I trim a video without using 'Share Factory" both at the front and back, and done to seconds?

Also, when I moved from my PS4 to my PS4Pro, I put everything on a USB stick (fine and well), but there is no option to import all the screenshots and videos from the USB stick back to the new PS4PRO???  What am I missing?

 Making sure he's REALLY dead...

 Hehe - I do like this shot :)
I did try (one time) to edit a video to pull out just one kill, what a pain it was~!  And what a steep learning curve - think it'll be next winter before I invest the time into learning all the ins and outs into learning how to edit video on the PS4. (Spring/Summer for me is all about yard-care and recumbent triking unless it is raining cats and dogs here in Ohio, no gaming at all, but then come NOV til April other than snow-blowing, I do nothing but gaming) so it evens out for me.

As I get older, I find it takes more work to pick up new stuff too, even from age 30 to age 50 I saw a change. Oh well, ka-ka happens, eh?

 This is an odd bug. Can I ask you to contact us at www.rebellion.co.uk/support so that we can investigate this further.

 @Beldelth, not sure who you are speaking too?  This is completely recreatable at any time.

Simply start the the game, go to the loadout screen, make any changes you like, back out to the main screen, quit the game without doing anything else, and when you next start up the game again you will find that nothing you had done was saved.  Even if all you had done was simply changed the layout of your loadout (didn't buy anything).

 Thanks for your support. I am sure this is an issue, because it didn't happen on Sniper Elite 3. The changes on PLAYER LOADOUT section, does not disappear on SE3 when you close the app, WITHOUT doing something in the game before. 

 So was this your issue?  Does the game otherwise work for you?  Does your loadout stick if you go into the rifle range and back out?
