World War II General Discussion

Please, please don't add Dogs to the kill streak list. Or even a Raps type kill streak. I absolutely hated the dogs in WAW and found myself shooting the dogs more than people sometimes. I hope they aren't in the game as for me it sort of takes away from the gun battles.

I think its a Treyarch thing, so probably won't be.

There are AI Paratroopers, however.

I know it's a Treyarch thing but thought they might use ideas from them.

Haven't seen that, I must look at some more WW2 gameplay videos. Hyped about the game though, hopefully it will deliver.

I don't think there is gameplay with them, but you can see them floating down in the trailer. Apparently they are AI controlled Paratroopers that land in and can kill enemies. Will be interesting to see how that works.

Am I the only person who felt worse about killing the dog in Ghosts than I ever did about killing the people. Honestly, that's the only reason I don't want to see dogs in a CoD game again, ever. 

Knowing how the Germans used dogs in WWII, things could really, really get ugly when/if it comes to using dogs in this setting. 

Please, no doggie C4.

The Russians did use dogs with explosives in WWII.  They trained them to go under vehicles.  There were many issues, the most mind boggling being that they trained then using Russian vehicles.  When released in the field, even if they acted out their training among the noise and guns, they headed for the Russian vehicles.  Sad affair all around.   (http://gizmodo.com/exploding-dogs-were-used-as-mobile-anti-tank-mines-duri-1474731775)

 

The US tried using bats with incidiery charges attached to them, but never got past a small scale test.

I said Germans, and I was factually incorrect. What you are describing is exactly what I was referencing, albeit incorrectly.

I wish I never knew this. I would save the dog over the human any day.

I hated the dogs in Ghosts.  Given the chance I would shoot them first!  Play it some Monday and ran into a Wolf!

 

...I had forgotten they had Wolves too! 

 

Hate them even more!

There where no dogs in the reveal. But it was said not al rewards where in that build. So maybe they will come or maybe not.
