    Springfield 1842

    For the love of God, fix this almost totally useless Gun. You guys are limiting its potential by 70-80%. And then you put the 2nd MS who uses exclusively this gun, on Hookers Attack Skirmish. Besides it not being realistic as they were not here at this skirmish ( later they were as depicted in the next skirmish ), it seems this skirmish was designed for total failure for the Confederates as they are pretty helpless in the open field with a gun that is only good for 20-30 yards ( and this is definitely not a guaranteed kill shooting at a single individual ). If the Union cant win this skirmish, then I dont know what to say lol.

    play the game leifr and you will see, it is total worthless cant hit shit with it and buck and ball doesnt fire more than one ball
    the 1842 could easily hit a target at 100yrd not in this game with only a front bead maybe make buck and ball usefull then maybe the rifle is ok

    also when can we start to use the guns we are supposed to have in our pledges

    I play on a regular basis and haven't noted a difference between any of the rifles in so much as to say that the 1842 objectively performs worse. It definitely does fire more than one ball; load in to drill camp and spend a few minutes firing at the tents or the side of a building.

    As for the other firearms, they will be made available once they have been modeled and implemented.

    Dear Major, I must stress that some of the newer rifles make a huge difference on the field, hereby I officially request that the South will be provided with as much as good rifles as we can get our hands on.

    I have actually resolved this issue.


    I now stand INSIDE the barn and try to shoot out!

    I can say for a fact that it fires multiple balls in one shot; I once took out three guys with one shot using the '42.

    M1842 is quite an effective gun if you know how to use it.

    Tbh, the 1842 is useless at anything past 50 yards, but i still love it, as it is perfect for quick suprise attack, when you use buckshot you don't really have to aim if they are close enouhh wich is real fun on certain maps where you just pop up out of a buch with like 3 guys and "bang!!" and you wipe away like a line wich is real good fun. But still, I understand your problem Goad but I also agree with Saris as in the end it all comes down to how you use it, just as with all weapons in the game.

    the gun is useless past about 20yrds or the first target at the range, where everyother rifle is so much more accurate the 1842 was not an inaccurate rifle up to 100yrs or so in this game it is past 20
    have fired at tents and houses and all i see is one impact since we dont have bullet holes made you cant tell and if you fire at a target all you get is one hole so again no way to tell
    maybe trusty can shine some light on how the buck and ball really works but i try not to use that rifle unless i absolutely have too
