Firearms Expert Reacts to Call Of Duty: WW2’s Guns

تم نشره في 2020/12/ 5
Jonathan Ferguson, a weapons expert and Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries, breaks down the iconic weaponry of Call of Duty: WW2, including the M1 Garand - complete with its iconic ‘ping’ sound, the Russian PPSh-41 submachine gun, and the German STG44 Assault Rifle.
Call of Duty: WW2 saw the COD franchise return to the Second World War with a ‘boots on the ground’ shooter experience, which was full to the brim with period WW2 guns like the American Thompson M1A1, the German MP40, and the Mauser C96 semi-automatic pistol.
In the above video, Jonathan Ferguson, a weapons expert and Keeper of Firearms & Artillery at the Royal Armouries, breaks down the weapons of Call of Duty: WW2, and compares their in-game depictions against their real-world counterparts.

  • Thanks so much for watching this series everyone! We are looking forward to showcasing even more games with Jonathan! If there are any games and virtual firearms you want us to break down, make sure to let us know!

    • @Irregular Dave nice

    • @Bl1zzard That's because I've been working for GameSpot for 5 years and stream in my free time instead

    • My man you haven’t uploaded in five years

    • The Nambu Type II is depicted with a charging handle to the right side of the weapon that does not exist in reality; in reality, the Type II operated on a principle similar to the Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr, where the entire front section of the gun and the barrel shroud would recoil when firing (which too is not depicted in-game). The actual charging handle is the tab extended to the left side of the weapon (which would pull back the entire barrel shroud when pulled), depicted as a sling mount in-game.

    • Another problem with suppressed blowback guns, is the increased back pressure from the can means the bolt comes back faster, depending on ammo. Heavier bullets tend to move slower, and means longer dwell time in the barrel. Meaning that it makes more noise out of the ejection port. Out of my buddies suppressed 10/22, 63gr. Aguila SSS (sniper subsonic, basically 63 gr. Lead slug at about 750-800 fps) was louder than normal ~36gr. supersonics.

  • Can he do bo2

  • Activision pls fix.

  • kinetic based weapons from fallout 3 new vegas or 4/76

  • The Sturmgewehr 44 was always one of my favorite weapons to use in WW2 era games.

  • Battlefield 1

  • Damn that tone in his voice when he said a bit to late to make a difference in the war. Did you want it to my guy

  • Can’t you please do cod Cold War

  • He might be wrong about German use of the ppsh 41. It was the second most used sub gun by Germany, they captured so many that they printed manuals in German and I'm fairly sure they rechambered a ton of them to 9mm. Like he said though, they may not have found their way to western Europe.

  • That’s funny because the German army fielded optical sights and so did the us they were experimental and were fielded towards the end of the war so guy correct your facts

  • Didn't they have a reload animation for the K98 where they somehow took out the magazine?

  • So starting off with some bragging rights, I got a sort of private tour of the royal armory as a kid, father was military at the time, in the naval special warfare group, so he probably knew some people..anyway, while I didn’t get to check out the firearms sections, probably since my father wasn’t a fan of teaching me about guns while he was alive, mostly just didn’t want me to never have me have to use them in my life, I did get to see the medieval sections, with my likings to the armor and swords of the time period that they had on hand. Even got to wear a helmet and hold a rusted broadsword that I held myself at the age of 11, again, a little bragging but moving on..It’s however very interesting comparing my findings with the items they had in the section of the time period, vs the items we use now, or even the ones in the video here. With some similarities, like how we still have a need for full suits of armor, made of different materials of course. That, and the ranges at which we fight now, minus those who may prefer knife combat / CQC and CQB combat. Even in World War II, some still preferred getting down and dirty with the enemy [ American War Crimes Stick Meme goes here ] or even some preferred to armor up even, forgot the armor name, but it was the one those carrying those early double barrel automatic guns used to protect themselves while carrying that heavy thing. Now if any of my information might be false, let me know, and let me know what I might not know as well. I love learning the tactics, engineering, and resources used during different eras, it gets my ideas brain really flowing sometimes. That and I love to learn too...

  • Stg 44 was designed to bridge the gap between a smg and a rifle

  • During the final years of ww2, Germany was severely hurting with supplies and production. So the Germans did actually capture soviet and even allied weapons and use them. And it is likely that they sent the ppsh to the western front in order to arm their troops with sub machine guns.

  • hey can someone tell me how he didnt notice the reload animation for the M1 Garand because once you put the clip in the gun if your not quick enough you would get a grand thumb

  • Maybe this is just a difference in the language, but technically, PPSH 41 (Pistolet Pulemyot Szpagina)is not a submachine gun, but a machine pistol. It's using pistol ammo. I know that the military nomenclature is slightly different between countries, but this is how it looks in the countries that had a "pleasure" to participate in the Warsaw Pact ;) The submachine gun is a firearm that is using a machine gun sized projectile with a smaller amount of propellant.

  • That was some nice German oder auch deutsch

  • What about the LMG’s

  • Despite being open-bolt, the Thompson actually locks open when empty. So a reload would indeed consist of just a magazine change, since the bolt is already back. The Thompson is pretty much the only open-bolt subgun this applies to, so I don't blame him on that one.

  • The Nambu Type II is depicted with a charging handle to the right side of the weapon that does not exist in reality; in reality, the Type II operated on a principle similar to the Gustloff Volkssturmgewehr, where the entire front section of the gun and the barrel shroud would recoil when firing (which too is not depicted in-game). The actual charging handle is the tab extended to the left side of the weapon (which would pull back the entire barrel shroud when pulled), depicted as a sling mount in-game.

  • Do the stuff in that museum come to life at night

  • PAUSE ME, IM RELOADING!!! PAUSIIIIING!!

  • Soviet weapons on western front are very, very plausible. Just because Normandy was defended by "second-line" units formed of people from occupied territories, forced to service in Wehrmacht. Those units were equipped with "beutegewehr" - with Lebels rifles, PPShs, Polish Mausers, VISes and so on. PPSh is very plausible, because it fires Mauser pistol ammunition, as well as Tokariew ammunition. It can fire ammunition from Mauser C96 "Bolo", which was still produced in Germany then. He even showed C96 after PPSh. And it probably would have not a drum, but an arc clip. Because PPSh's poor production quality forced to use just one drum clip with one weapon. You couldn't replace drum magazine in war-time-produced PPSh. They just didn't fit. Replaceable magazines were delivered with post-war PPShes, like with these made in Łucznik-Radom factory, in Poland. But they were rather rare, most of vendors after the WW2 produced only arc clips. Even PPSh-43 was designed for arc clip. And some of vendors mixed designs of PPSh-41 and 43. Like a gun, formed of steel sheets (like 43), with wooden butt from 41. And PPSh is spelled just "pe-pe-sha", not "pa-pe-sha". It is a Russian acronym for "Pistolet Pulemiot Shpagina", which means "Machine Pistol of Shpagin". Not to be confused with PPS, which stands for "Pistolet Pulemiot Sudaieva" - "Machine Pistol of Sudaiev". PPSh was designed in a village near Moscow, just before German invasion and PPS was designed in Leningrad, during the siege of the city. By the way, C96 had no replaceable clips. It's weard he didn't mention that.

  • this man is a legend he met gun jesus.

  • 1:10 I like how it’s all historical weapons and that p90 just vibin’

  • He forgot to point out the mp40's inaccurate fire rate

  • 12:32 Jonathan smiles as a room full of Wehrmacht soldiers is riddled with bullets. Order is being restored

  • Ah yes, I see some of my favorite WWII weapons on the back table: MP40 M1 Garand P90

  • I can't believe there are Soviet gun on Normandy beach

  • I love this guy! Donation made

  • Rainbow 6 seige would be fun

  • ACSHUALLLLLLLLYYYYYYY the m1a1 doesn't need to be cocked after firing all of your ammo if you dry fire it then yes, but you don't need to

  • Something I noticed is the m1 reload mechanic, the animation has the character push the bolt forward rather than the bold being released once the pressure is released from the top round

  • The m1 garand sounds🤮🤮

  • The slow great-grandfather intradurally list because level biomechanically bake anenst a cut basement. capricious, regular sandwich

  • Not the best game, but my favourite game

  • Thanks for the video I enjoyed it! I have a question do you feel that in ww2 with the sub machine guns, that they were fired more from the hip or spraying than aiming down the sights? Thanks again very educational!

  • am I the only one who called the ppsh the push

  • I wanted to point out the clacking noise the gun would make...got mentioned in video. 'erry nice.

  • Why didn't you do the BAR

  • Do escape from tarkov please

  • Do Post Scriptum

  • Breakdown the UAV

  • This was a entertaining video

  • Well the PPSH was found at the beach locations of D-day because of Russian prisoners being held there or somewhere nearby.

  • Pausing...

  • this guy looks like johnny knoxville

  • When I was stationed at Ft Sill we had some important people visit and the museum brought out some of their guns I fired the M1 Garand. It's was such a great experience. Even got a picture of the shell ejecting and it looks blurred. The M1 had been my favorite WW2 gun since play MOH rising sun on ps2

  • FG 42 is missing

  • Real STG44 is sexy man !!

  • Battlefield 1

  • Squad would be kind of interesting

  • Did u know in 1917 the French made an agog sight

  • How can you handle a C96 and not mention Han Solo?!?

  • This is one of the worst cod game ever

  • I love this. Any time I feel uncomfortable: "Pausing"

  • I'd love to see this guy react to the weapons in the Doom reboots, or Bioshock.

  • Can he do rainbow six siege ?

  • Crisis

  • Read dead redemption 2

  • Arma 3 please

  • Do cold war

  • The incorrect M1 loading is probably the biggest mistake I’d think, since it’s a really famous mechanic. I don’t think he mentioned it, he probably didn’t notice it. But in the game the bolt has to be pushed back forward to fire, which is not how it worked. It would fly back on its own because you had to hold it back, hence “garand thumb”.

  • can you do ww1?

  • When he is talking about double-barrel, and it's third barrel, he says: "In singleplayer, it doesn't get fired at all. There is an unlock, I gather..." Even he knows how microtransactions work now in AAA games, how sad has this industry become, fck me

  • 7:20 Wait a moment.. The stick magazine I'm pretty sure on the Thompson only releases the bolt with drum mags and not the basic stick mags.. Clicking on the trigger with no bullets in the magazine forces the bolt forward.. I'm almost positive?? Right? come on.. I must be right... :O

  • Honestly I love these videos but if I have one criticism it’s the “pausing” thing. It’s just unnecessary and it happens so often it’s annoying. Why not use a transition like “next I’d like to talk about the ____.”

  • Battlefield 1 please!!! Would love to see a General Liu rifle, Burton and Huot, Frommer Stop and Pieper, Fedorov, Ribeyrolles, M1912, and Automatico. Definitely most interesting guns in any shooter ever!

  • Please do Day of Infamy!!!

  • When reloading the grenade launcher for the m1 garand, always insert a blank bullet for it, because you will explode to bits if you are using non blanks :)

  • My biggest gripe with the inclusion of the StG is that there’s a reason you don’t see it in the first two CoDs, but it does show up in WaW: They weren’t on the Western Front. By the time production was started on that gun, Germany wasn’t able to build special factories. These were small batch guns, and as such got deployed exclusively to the priority theater- Russia. This, in turn, is why you see the claim that the AK is just an upgraded StG clone. Like the PpSH, it’s not impossible that this gun would’ve been brought to the other side of the Reich, it’s just incredibly unlikely.

  • You should get him to look at a game called Hunt: Showdown

  • This guy needs to do some battlefield games

  • Noooo. Jonny didn't address the pathetic MG42 sound and rate of fire :( :(

  • holy shit, i didnt know the double barrel shotgun had a rifle mode?? dang these videos are interesting.

  • God I remembered the graphics of this game being so good... why do they look so bad now 😂

  • Gotta say i watched few videos of this series, If you want another game to check WWII weapons, Postscriptum is the game you want to see. Of course it's a video game but it's a slower pace video game. It make sense if you want to compare at a more realistic game (reloads, aspects, doctrines...) A lot of models are available. (kar98k, lee-enfield, Stg-44, mp-40, sten,Grease gun m3, enfield 2(revolver), lebel rifle, bren gun,BAR, mg34-42, gewerh 41 & 43, carabine M1, M1 garand, thompson M1, colt 1911, Luger ,P38, and some other french gun ( I forgot the AT guns like Boys and Pzgewerh (dutch name ^^') It's worth a look. Good work anyway ! (Game : Post Scriptum)

  • 3:25 anybody noticed that the magazine well on the ppsch is from the pps looks like they cobined the two

  • You don’t even see the cartridges being rechambered in the weapons. One obvious example is the avs

  • Your wrong about German soldiers rarely using captured Russian weapons on the Eastern Front ...that happened a lot especially the sub machine guns

  • "Seeing German soldiers use Russian weapons is a little weird" I suppose all of the black Nazis are just fine though, right?

  • Please do battlefield 1

  • I might add the PPSh 41 has a PPS 43 magazine well

  • You should have him check out the MGS games... snake eater in particular

  • So he plays games too? I suppose if you were into guns, FPS's would be on the hobby table, eh? Cool dude.

  • lol ive been there

  • I like it how it went ww2 to waw

  • Can you break down pavlov vr's guns

  • doesnt the thompson have a "lock bolt back on empty mag" feature ? or is it only the 'old' version that has it (which would just mean they mixed the different versions up even more) ? not an expert myself, but know it is modeled like that in another game (hotdogs horseshoes and handgrenades) which puts quite alot of effort on simulating guns accurately, so i guessed if they modeled their thompson with lock-bolt-open they did it cuz the real thing had it

  • Wonder if he could take a look on Squad.

  • you should do dayz

  • It's a submachinegun on steroids

  • can he react to H3VR, gameplay is not realistic but firearm are as much accurate as possible in the unity engine

  • I desperately wanted to see him critique the FG42

  • Show him BF5. I think he would be really angry to see how they created weapons. (And Cinematics too)

  • Actually the Germans captured allot of soviet submachine guns on the eastern front, because they liked it more instead of the mp40. They where not that popular on the western front of course, but they where around, even early war.

  • Hate to burst your bubble but yeah optic sights like reflex sight were made in "1900" so they did exist

  • why all experts have a bad webcam

  • we need to see ARMA 3 reaction and breakdown

  • i know he probably isn't a historian but i have to make a few remarks about the MP/Stg 44. - it was developed as a secet-fire weapon with an intermediate cartridge to give infantry light automatic fire that was similar to that of light machineguns, not really as an smg. - the MP/Stg 44 didn't come that late into the war, it was issued to troops around 1942-1943. although it didn't have a major impact on the outcome of the war it did do very well with the squads that did receieved them, reporting that they were able to push enemy positions much easier due to the maintained fire they were able to provide.
