This is the update for a new weapon, the Trench Raiding Club.







The Trench Raiding Club is a widely used weapon in world war history, especially in battles where trenches were prominent. This makes it a very interesting addition for Grunt1914.







This melee oriented club is a handmade version of a more structured and mechanically formed club, with spikes or nails hammered through, to deliver piercing damage as an extra feature. These were often made from existing clubs or even sturdy branches or logs, with relative ease.







Because of its availability weapons like these were often made in bulk from small groves or logging encampments near battle sites. They would be given to soldiers as an extra means of protection or in some cases assault.







This weapon has little stab damage, but excellent charge and swing damage, making it useful as an all round melee option, regardless of its slower speed. One hits kills are often possible with this weapon, if aimed at the upper body or head region of a soldier.

This is the update for a new gun, the Parker VH 1916 sawed off shotgun.







The Parker VH 1916 is a very scarcely elected weapon in world war history, making it a very interesting addition for Grunt1914. The gun is of American origin and was barely used in the Great war.







The Parker brothers made all their guns by hand and was of exceptional quality. All of their guns were made to the same excellent quality.

The Parker VH 1916 has double triggers, 16 inch barrels instead of the usual 30 inch ones and delivers some serious firepower.







With its short range but massive power the weapon was perfect for defense inside the trenches of the massive battles of the war. Sawed of shotguns made great replacements as secondary firearms due to their concealment and agility capabilities.

This is the update for a new gun, the Hotchkiss M1914.







The Hotchkiss M1914 is a lesser known weapon in world war history, making it an interesting addition for Grunt1914. The gun is of French origin and was mass produced for the French military for use in overseas colonies.







Using gas cooling techniques the gun has a 30 round strip magazine. It has a massive RPM of 550 in Grunt1914 and does medium damage over a short period.







This is a great weapon for all round use on the battlefield. Its effective for close, medium and even long ranged combat with its overall ammunition capacity and effective fire rate.

In this update the advanced graphical selection and choices are vastly improved and expanded on. With this update all major post processing features that are used within Grunt1914 can now be tuned.







These settings include Ambient Occlusion, AntiAliasing, ScreenSpaceReflection, MotionBlur, Bloom, ChromaticAberation and Vignetting. These all affects performance and fine tuning the settings will get each player the experience they desire in terms of quality vs. performance.







This update aims to improve the experience for players that have difficulty running the game at maximum settings, by providing many more options to select or deselect.







At the bottom of the graphics settings menu there is a ""performance bar", this shows the player what the current state of quality vs. performance is - represented by a color slider. All advanced settings are color coded to represent its level of performance. AmbientOcclusion for example is very intensive so its red, whereas Vignetting is very light, and is then green as a result.



The following screenshots show maximum vs. minimum settings.

Minimum :



Maximum :



As is clearly represented above, there is a huge gap between maximum and minimum settings, hopefully this will help bridge the performance issues for some players.



This feature is due to be altered further going forward.

This is the second update for a new map, called Express.







Express is by far the smallest map in the game and is suitable for very small team death-match games or as little as one on one death-match or gun-game rounds. Shotguns, sub-machine guns and pistols will work best here, with rifles and machine guns being too slow and heavy to really challenge on this map.







Express has a multitude of boxes, crates, props and other such miscellaneous items strewn about on a train. The entire map is on a underground troop and supply train, moving between battles. The train contains a storage cart, and three barracks carts to explore and fight on. Access to the cockpit is locked.







This map is only an interior and as such only has the clear weather option.







This map is quite experimental at this stage, and as of yet it is unclear how players will find the experience. As such the map is due to change in the coming weeks based on player feedback.

In this new update ammo stations are introduced to the game.







These are placed randomly and strategically around the map and are there to naturally provide the players with more ammo when they run out of bullets. Combat can be fast and brutal and munition stocks usually drop fast in the heat of battle.







They are intractable by simply walking near them, they then add a certain amount of ammo to your gun's available munitions.







The stations are destroyed when depleted but re-spawn to the same location every 10 seconds once destroyed, ensuring the battle rages on!

This is the update for a new gun, the Lewis gun.





The Lewis gun is a classic in world war folklore and history, making it a must have for Grunt1914. The gun is of English origin and was mass produced in England during its early lifetime in 1914.







Using advanced cooling techniques the gun has a 47 round pan magazine. It has a incredible RPM of 600 in Grunt1914 and does allot of damage over a short period!







Using this new weapon you are sure to become the ultimate run and gun grunt out there on the battlefield! Heavy style!
