Thread: Gatling guns?

  1. #1

    Gatling guns?

    Is the dev team going to make Gatling guns available at any point... After all there were limited number of them used in the civil war

    Well, the game is about the Maryland Campaign of 1862 and its 4 battles.
    Since the Gatling Gun wasn't used at all during those 16 days, you won't see it.

    Most likely. But non of those campaigns saw the Gatling Gun in action.

    The only reported use was during the Petersburg Siege in 1864. 2 single Gatling Guns were used in the war.

    So you don't think the dev team would ever go that far to make that siege in the future ?

    We will see, what the future will bring.
    For myself, there are far more important and interesting campaigns

    So don't expect any Gatling Guns within the next 5 years..

    The Gatling Gun is overrated and was used, like I said, most likely only one time during the war.
    If we would like to add the Petersburg Siege one day, we will add the Gatling Gun of course.

    Just don't expect anything like that in the next years.

    I would also like to add; apparently the gatling gun wasn't even that useful. It would only wound an enemy at best, though maybe rarely kill them. So I couldn't imagine it being that fun to use either.

    Down the road it would also be really cool if they added a navy campaign
