Create Epic, Funny or Fail videos with your rifle and win gold!

For the previous challenge, we were looking for the most beautiful Fireworks and you certainly delivered!
In the video below you can see the amazing skills of ShadowStrike16900 blasting away enemy vehicles and soldiers. If this is not an EPIC way to start the new year, I don't know what is!


Sometimes you just don't hit the target you anticipated. Watch how Aydarke dodges the enemy bomb, and see how the bomb crashes into the plane chasing him.
That enemy pilot sure FAILED in his mission!

In the RBS challenges, we want you to share your best video footage with us! So if you have any footage you really want to share with the rest of the community, and even better, be rewarded for with gold! This is your chance! Simply create a video lasting three minutes or less and post the link in the forum topic below.

RBS challenge 11: Rifles!
I want you to meet my best friend. He kept me safe so many times, saved my life over and over again. We have quite some history, the two of us. We’ve travelled the world together. We’ve been in Rome, London, Berlin and Oslo. Just me and my rifle. We’ve fought in the fields, across rivers and inside houses. We’ve been through through hell and back together.

In this challenge, it’s all about rifles. Bolt-action rifles, semi-automatic rifles, scoped or unscoped, modded or standard issue, as long as it is a rifle (No assault rifles like the STG). In this challenge we are looking for the best lives you’ve had as rifleman.

Maybe you took out a whole enemy team with your rifle in a single life? Maybe you’ve made a beautiful long range kill. Or maybe there is a jeep driving straight at you with 6 men on top, after missing every single shot, it even drives you over honking it’s horn!

For this challenge, you can submit your video into one of three categories:
  • Most Epic video
  • Funniest video
  • Biggest fail video
You can show us which category you wish to participate in by adding the word ‘epic’, ‘funny’ or ‘fail’ to the title of your video. You submit you video to the challenge by posting a link to it in the forum topic below.

Of course, there are prizes to be won! In this challenge there are a total of nine prizes to be earned! Three in each category:
  • First prize: 2000 gold
  • Second prize: 1000 gold
  • Third prize: 500 gold
Are you interested and want to know more? Check this link to see how you can participate!

Meet the Players – Dr_Stanford

Behind every soldier in Heroes & Generals is a dedicated gamer – and we want for you to get to know each other a little better. That is why we invite players to tell a bit about themselves and their experiences on the frontline.

Meet Dr_Stanford, the winner of the Presents for Heintz, Ivan and Joe! contest.

What is the story behind your player name?
There is none. Or if there was I can’t remember. I used it in Battlefield 4 for the first time and since then I have used it in every game.

When did you first start playing Heroes & Generals?
I started playing Heroes & Generals in October 2014. A YouTube video from FRANKIEonPC made me aware of the game. Since then I never stopped enjoying it.

What is your most memorable moment in Heroes & Generals?
Lets see … there are so many. I once got a Panzerfaust kill across the map just shooting it into the sky. I literally just laughed for the rest of the round.

How many characters do you have, and what are your favorite loadout?
I have 12 German, four Soviet and three American soldiers. My favorite loadout is the STG44 with the Panzerwurfmine and a knife. The moment the STG44 entered Heroes & Generals it was love at first sight. Just lately I got my 10.000th kill with it.

What do you do when not playing Heroes & Generals?
I’m a Electrical Engineering Student.

What are your favorite films, books and music?
Films: All of the Marvel films. Civil war in particular.
Books: What is a Book?
Music: Electronic Music no matter which genre.

Random fun fact about you?
I usually talk way too much.
