Game Update Notes (26 JUL 2018)

New Weapon

The RPG-7 V2 has been added to select maps; a devastating anti-personnel weapon with a large fragmentation radius. It is a single shot weapon and is automatically dropped once fired. The RPG-7 has a minimum safe arming distance of ten meters; the round will not detonate if it does not travel at least ten meters. Beware the back blast as it will injure, or even kill, those directly behind when fired.
